Kat’s Closet: Shift of Season.

Back in the red, white and black and it feels so good! Preseason has kicked off and I’ve dug out the Raptors colours that were tucked away until next season. Tomboy chic is my comfort zone so a pair of tapered track pants and heels just makes sense. I like adding business pieces (like the crisp white vest) to chill gear for the best of both worlds. Pulling together an outfit for games is just another part of the gig I adore. 42 games to go. To the court, batman! -k

Kat’s Closet – Break Those Blues.

January is the official start of the so called winter blues. I have found a positive: sales. Sales, sales, sales. Save your moola and do a little January retail therapy. This outfit is the result of just that. And colour. Mixing patterns just makes me happy. Break those so called rules. Ah, the simple life savers. -k

Kat’s Closet – Backpacking through the City.

Honestly, some days I laugh at the amount of outfit changes I go through. This isn’t including workout gear. Yesterday I kept the tally to two. And I inserted a new accessory. Welcome my new backpack to the family. Fancy backpack. Dressed up or down, it’s perfect for my city commutes. And I’m respectful of my fellow subway goers and take it off on the tube. She took me from a shoot, to the gym, to home cooked taco dinner with the fella. She’s cute. I like her. -k

Kat’s Closet – Stay Classy

You know all of those things that you always wanted to do? You should do them. These words sing song in my head daily. And I share them with others pretty much daily. Right now the baby steps towards checkmarks are smaller than I want. Everybody does it differently when competition hollers. I’m a competitive person. But I believe you can stay classy.

Last night CK ( ICANDI BLOG) and I talked about taking over the world at a corner table at Weslodge. And the baby steps grew a bit. Forwards, backwards, no right or wrong way. I wore my peplum backwards instead of forwards last night.

And my pearls. Stay classy. -k

Kat’s Closet – Peplum Please.

Weekends are always such a mad dash between work and celebratory wishes in repeat. This has perfected my functioning on too little zzz’s and multi-tasking magic. Note this outfits accessory; a scrumdiliumptious fibre one bar. I was waiting for my ride to birthday festivities and needed a quick snack to tie me over. Multi-tasking magic.

I haven’t been in H&M is eons it seems. The one closest to me is always full of chaos because of it’s downtown Toronto location but I braved the storm the other week and found a couple of cute additions to my closet. I wore these pants for the first game of the Raptors season. My choice to wear them was inspired by Beyonce’s courtside outfit for the Brooklyn Nets home opener the night before.  Nobody like B. And I’ve been rockin’ my my inner Madmen 40’s inspired ‘do all weekend too just because I felt like stepping outside of my box. Truth is, it’s completely me. Hope your weekend was magical. -k

Kat’s Closet – Work Mode

These are my favourite days. It doesn’t matter if I had a sleepless night due to my brain spinning creative mumble jumble of the next days events or uncontrollable factors that punch you in the gut when you’re not looking. This is exactly how it was, actually. (Hense the quiet week on the blog.) And as I sat backstage anticipating show number two, mic’d up, graffiti enhanced script in hand, holding the third coffee of the day, throwing myself into a new challenge; this was perfect.

I really believe the truth within comes out in what you wear. Out of every sleeve/button/cuff/seam in your closet you put this on today for a reason. So this was my professional look with a Kat twist.

It’s a new week. Make it awesome. -k
