Robyn à la Mode

Recently, Bouquet of Frocks decided to collaborate with Life is Better Red and the results were delicious! We headed on over to Juliette & Chocolat to share some of Montreal's sweet treats with Robyn of "Life is Better Red" and she returned the favor with a look at one of fall's biggest trends: the classic chambray shirt.

Happy Thanksgiving from Edmonton, where our beautiful fall is in full swing! There 
are so many fashion trends that I am loving for autumn: camo, leather, animal print, 
boots, ankle straps and of course one of my favourites, chambray. I’ve been all over 
my chambray shirt since I picked it up in February, wearing it with maxi skirts, with 
pencil skirts, with short summer skirts, with brightly coloured shorts, tucked in, 
pulled out, button up, unbuttoned… you name it, I’ve done it! 

And that is what I love so much about my chambray shirt, it’s versatility. Now, as we 
are moving into fall in Edmonton, there are even more variations. I love the look of a 
tailored chambray shirt paired with coloured denim or a skinny military pant. 
While going out for a walk to enjoy the gorgeous fall colours on Thanksgiving 
weekend, I put together an outfit featuring my well-loved chambray shirt. I paired 
the shirt with my favourite pair of coloured denim (to avoid the Canadian Tuxedo), 
an extremely comfortable pair of jeans in a rich mulberry. I dressed the outfit up 
with a chunky necklace and some sparkly bracelets. I threw on my favourite brown 
leather ankle boots and my black leather biker jacket and I was ready to go. 

Hopefully this beautiful fall weather will last for at least a couple more weeks, giving 
me a chance to show off some more fall fashion before I am forced to hide it all 
under my super warm and puffy Canada Goose coat.
