During Sarah-Jane’s Brand & Wardrobe Consultation prior to her photoshoot, we determined that her brand colors were black and white with subtle touches of colour, especially pink and blue. Deciding on branding colours is an important part of the process, as it will be tied to brand recognition!

Sarah-Jane’s 7 Tips To Rock Your White Pants & Jeans

1. Size up

You don’t want your white pants to look to tight, you want a streamlined, clean look.

2. Fabric choice

With white you want to get a higher quality and thicker fabric.
You can get away with a less expensive piece a lot easier in a darker colour.

3. Fit

Pick a silhouette best for your body type. If you already know a brand & style that works really well for you, try the same but in white.

4. Pockets

Front pockets add bulk. Pick pants with faux pockets, none, or ask your tailor to cut them out. It’s easy & inexpensive!

5. Pair with a longer top

Hip length to mid thigh. Consider wearing a longer top with slimmer fit pants or jeans.

6. A 3rd layer

Hip length blazer, cardigan, vest, a sleeveless trench...

7. Pair with a neutral coloured shoe and it will give you a longer, leaner & slimmer look. White, metallic, silver, gold, rose gold, grey, blush or skin tones.

Fall Favorites

PureStudiosAgnesKieszOct20-4-2a.jpg

Fall is in full swing! I won’t lie, the transition from summer to fall is never easy for me. I simply love summer. I love being outside all day, I love being bare foot, visiting gorgeous Ontario beaches, observing flowers in my garden blooming… I could go on forever.

I have to admit though, Canadian fall is a true charmer and she knows how to seduce us. Once the colors start changing, it’s hard not to fall in love.

Here are my Fall Favorites that are helping me enjoy our beautiful fall more!

  1. Wool Cardigan

    This cardigan is great at keeping me warm. At first I was really surprised at how warm it is! I love the colors of it - not my usual choice, but I’m so happy it’s not another black jacket.

2. “The subtle art of not giving a f***” by Mark Manson

I enjoyed this book SO much, I’ve read it in almost one sitting. The title is definitely catching but can be a bit misleading. This book is NOT about slacking off. To the contrary, it’s about living to your highest potential while accepting that life is not perfect.

This book gave me so many nuggets of wisdom. I particularly love how Manson writes about happiness: “Happiness comes from solving problems. The keyword is “solving”. If you’re avoiding your problems or feel like you don’t have any problems, then you’re going to make yourself miserable. If you feel like you have many problems that you can’t solve, you will likewise make yourself miserable. The secret is in the solving of the problems, not in having problems in the first place.”

3. Photo of the Season: Reema

It’s very hard to choose a favorite photo, but this moment was truly special. I really enjoyed working with Reema, because she’s such a confident woman. Confident women always inspire me. I photographed her in studio and downtown Toronto. When pigeons started flying around her, I asked Reema to look back and was fortunate enough to capture this great moment!

4. Kate Spade golden flats

I love timeless black and as a photographer I wear a lot of black so every now and then I like to spice it up with a something special. There’s nothing like a beautiful pair of shoes to look at during those dark fall days!

5. Quote: Do Your Best & Surrender The Rest

Nowadays the pressure to have it all can simply be too much. We forget to stop and smell the roses, we work so hard yet don’t get to enjoy the fruits of our labor because we get addicted to working. We get anxiety around the thought of leaving our laptop and phone behind. We try to control it all, which never has the right outcome...
This is my new mantra. Do Your Best and Surrender The Rest. Don’t just work at your life, enjoy your life. Know when to let go. This is a quote I want to look at every morning of every day!

Plus, local, seasonal produce just tastes better!” - Cathy Missios
