Leather & polka dots: fall outfit staples

Title #ad Although we did get hit with hot and sunny weather at the end of September, here in Winnipeg I think we all know it’s officially fall. But that’s okay. For me, when the leaves start changing and the weather gets colder all I want are sweaters, cute coats, boots, and pumpkin spice lattes.

Fall is my favourite time of the year, and with that comes fall fashion. I am all about black. Black leather leggings, black boots, black coats, etc. For this particular outfit, I wanted to keep it classy, but still cute. I paired these black faux-leather leggings with black moto boots, a black and a white polka dot blouse layered underneath this black long-sleeve crop top. To top it all off, I threw on my new cropped moto jacket (faux leather of course).

For accessories, I kept it simple with a charm necklace (got this ages ago) and the best accessory of all, my smile. I don’t usually rock red lipstick, but I felt the pop of bright, bold colour totally worked in my favour with this look. Red lipstick is great for making your teeth appear whiter, which I’ve also gotten extra help from courtesy of the Colgate* Optic White line.

I received the Colgate* Optic White Toothbrush + Built-In Whitening Pen about a month ago and have been using it for the past few weeks to get a brighter smile. Available now at mass retailers, the toothbrush has a whitening pen on the other end, so after brushing you can go the extra mile with the stay-on gel formula that adheres to teeth. Retailing for C$16.99 (SRP), the toothbrush +pen provides effective whitening, affordability and convenience all from one product. The toothbrush is specially designed with stain removers and polishing bristles to help remove stains, whereas the gel in the built-in pen contains hydrogen peroxide, which provides effective whitening beyond surface stains. My new dental routine also includes the Colgate* Optic White Platinum Express White Anticavity Toothpaste (SRP C$5.18) and the Colgate* Optic White WhiteSeal Mouthwash (SRP C$5.38 for 250 ml). Don’t forget to use the mouthwash before the pen!

Although fall is all about covering up and staying warm, I still love showing off my smile, something that’s easy to do with a little help from some red lipstick and *Colgate.
