Hi guys! I’m out west in Alberta visiting some family and loving the warm weather they’re having. Just the other day, it was 30 degrees (celsius)!! Gotta love fall and the last bits of summer weather. Even though all the leaves over here have already started to fall :( but I did manage to find the most beautiful park in the city of Lethbridge called Henderson Lake Park. I could seriously live in this park. So beautiful!

When I’m travelling to visit family, I like to keep things simple, casual and chic. My wardrobe consists mainly of denim, leggings, tops and comfy sweaters. I use my accessories to dress up my look… And yes, I may or may not be wearing too many rings here! Lol!! I really love yellow, it’s one of my happy colours!! Mustard yellow is such a great choice for fall, it can easily be worn with warm and cool colours. And looks great against just about any skin tone :)

Fall 2014 Must Haves

Hi guys! Remember me? I must apologize for my long absence, I hadn’t intended to be gone for so long. For the past few weeks, I’ve been busy working on a marketing campaign and photo shoot for Heart & Stroke’s ‘ I <3 Shoe Auction 2015 ‘. And I can’t wait to share it with you guys but you’ll have to wait a few months for that…Now that that’s done, it’s back to blogging and catching up with your blogs :)

Ok my loves, its time to get frank with you. Lately our weather has been up and down and by that I mean mostly down. That’s right, Winnipeg I’m looking at you. From the rain to the cooler temperatures and the constant overcast sky… I’m ready to admit that fall is coming 😁. Also it is September after all and the leaves in my yard have already started to turn. Believe it or not, Fall is one of my favourite seasons! I always look forward to pulling out my chunky sweaters, all my boots, coats, etc but I also look forward to picking up a few new items. No big surprise there! Anyhow, I thought I would share some of my fall 2014 must haves with you.

The Chunky Knit

This is a no brainer if you live in a cold weather city like me! I plan on adding several pieces to my closet, everything from cardigans, thick turtle necks, slouchy crew necks, oversized sweaters and hopefully something cashmere too :)

My tip – Remember oversized sweaters shouldn’t look sloppy. To keep this from happening, look for sweaters that fit in the shoulders and I like to balance out the volume by wearing fitted trousers or skinny jeans, leggings or even a pencil skirt.

The Black Blazer:

A black tailored blazer is classic, chic and feminine. And it looks great on all body types! I truly believe your closet is not complete without one. Right?!

My tip – Look for blazers that fit smaller in the shoulders & arms and they should sit around your hip.

The Tall Boot A.K.A Riding Boot:

Boot collageI love a good riding boot because it’s classic but versatile. Dressed up or down, these beauties are your best friend. You can wear them with just about anything from skinnies to pants, skirts, dress, leggings etc… Need I say more.

Oversized Coat:

I believe it was the Burberry Prorsum Fall 2014 show that jumped started this chic trend. It’s the perfect piece to keep you warm as the summer days cools off and fall temperatures move in. Layering never looked so chic.

Slouchy Pants:

Whomever decided to combined the comfort of sweats with the polish of a trouser is a genius in my book. I love that these pants are relaxed in the hip but still have a tailored leg, making them still office approved. This is by far my favourite trend because they are easy to wear and ridiculously comfortable. I already own one too many pair.

What are you guys lusting after for fall?

Outfit Of The Day: Bright Orange

Ok guys, its confession time. I bought this very bright top solely because it was on sale. Picture this. There I was grocery shopping at Superstore (all Joe Fresh clothes are sold thru Superstore & Loblaws in Canada) when I spotted this bright orange beauty on the clearance rack. Naturally, I had to wander over and check it out … and maybe the whole clearance section ;) My first thought was – nice silk top, but it might be too bright for my taste that is until I saw the price. $9.99 (marked down from $49). I mean, I can’t pass that up, right?!? Sure colour wise it might be a little out of my comfort zone but it is summer after all. And, I can’t think of better time than now to wear orange. Also, if I think about the cost per wear … this top is a practically free :) See how I rationalize things in my mind. Lol!

Woohoo, it’s Friday!! And I can’t think of a better time than now to rock a maxi dress. Which also happens to be one of my favourite things to wear during the summer. Why, you ask? They’re versatile, easy to wear, they look great on everybody type, you can easily dress them up or down and are perfect for those days when you sleep thru your alarm clock ;) I mean, does it get any better?
