Canadian Tuxedo…via NYFW






Top: ℅ Lacoste (New collection, not available yet); Jeans: ℅ 7FAM; Shoes: Valentino; Clutch: Clare Vivier; Earrings: Gorjana; Necklace: Gorjana; Watch: Michele; Hermes Cuff; Layered Cuff: Gorjana; Cigar Rings: Gorjana; Sunglasses: Ray-Ban

There’s something to be said for the simple things in life…those consistent things that you can always depend on: Chipotle, red wine, your mom, Lifetime TV, spray tans, blowouts, OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark nail polish…the list goes on and on.

But when it comes to throwing on an outfit and rushing out the door, what’s your consistent go-to-look? Mine has varied over the years, but recently I have found that I continue to reach for a perfect pair of fitting denim, another layer of denim up top, a chic pair of shoes (heels or flats, depending on the activity of the day), a statement clutch, and piles of gold jewelry.

I brought this look with me to NYC, and thank goodness, it has saved me on more than one occasion while dashing through the city running amidst errands.

What’s your go to look of the moment?

    Courtney do you know how ridiculous you look with a pony tail given your short hair? Just because you call yourself a fashion blogger doesn’t mean your looks are all that great.

    • Courtney

      Okay, then get off my site and stop commenting (this is your 6th comment to date….thanks, IP search!) if you despise my looks that much. Thanks! xoxo, CK

    I adore a Canadian Tuxedo and can’t get enough of the combo. You look fab! (eff that person who said your hair looks bad. If you don’t have anything nice to say, then don’t say anything at all!) xx


  • skigirl0891

    Go to of the moment…which is about to end…. neon-ish cut off shorts and a lightweight long-sleeve top. Cozy!

  • Ashley

    Courtney-You look fabulous! When will that top be available to purchase? I NEED!!

  • Whitney

    I am totally onboard with you when it comes to denim on denim. I think it is such a cute look when done right (aka, HERE!). One time a stranger commented on my outfit, “So when did Canadian tuxedo’s come back?” I kept my composure and laughed it off while I thought in my head, “You sir, are wearing an outdated and ugly fedora. You don’t even deserve a response.”


  • Laura

    Such a pretty and feminine look! Love how you style these shoes!

  • AngieC

    Love this casual look and love your little pony! BTW, your complexion looks flawless! What foundation do you use?

    […] #1: Can I have this outfit? The Clare V. clutch? The shoes? Yes to […]

  • Regis

    Thanks for reppin’ the Great White North in NYC!

    I love the patterned clutch paired with the jewelry against the double-denim backdrop. The denim almost acts as a neutral in this outfit. Hugs from Halifax, Canada!
