SEVENTEEN/ canadian tuxedo

It's finally fall where I live and the leaves are slowly but surely changing colours. The temperature did make a desperate drop lately as well and I happy to say — it's FINALLY sweater / jacket weather again! Autumn is definitely one of my favourite times of the year (along with winter, I'm weird, I know) and when it was finally cool enough to break out my denim jacket I had a smile plastered on my face all day long. 

I bought this faux fur stole last year and I just did not know what to pair it with. I feel like it's a bit too fancy to wear in a casual outfit but I tried it out today and I have to admit, I'm in love. I glam'd up the casual look of denim + denim (Canadian tuxedo) and leopard print blouse with the use of my faux fur stole, dark red lipstick, my beloved gold glittery converse and gold / tortoise shell accessories. I felt self conscious of my outfit the entire day but after looking back at these pictures, I'm really happy with the outcome. I'm comfortable with taking wild and punky risks but when it comes time to play around with denims or preppy looks I'm completely lost. I need to start taking more risks in that respect.
