Oh Beautiful Scarf Weather

Okay. I know. This is very monochromatic of me.  That's why I tossed the scarf in to make things a little interesting. I don't know if you're like me when, you're wearing a scarf and you'll constantly re-tie it to see which way looks best. And then you'll move it around here and there just to get it perfect. Yeah well, that's what happened in this blog shoot.  A scarf worn every which way. I kind of love the casual way in the first picture, where its just tossed over my shoulder. I may go for that look more often. A girl has to think about her outfit in these minute details right?

The scarf on feature is from Forever21, from years ago. So granted I cannot just link you to that scarf. However here are a couple that are just as good.

Joe Fresh- Nordic Knit Circle Scarf
H&M- Checked Scarf
Topshop- Oversized Striped Tape Edge Blanket Scarf ( I kind of need this scarf. Nope. Definitely do.)

Hey. I'm focusing on knitwear today. Large knit sweaters, socks, scarves - these babies are all classic fall essentials.

Here are just a few of the knitted wares I'm coveting this season.

Fall Layers : Sweater over Dress

Okay. I'm doing some basic fall layering today. I know many people are still not layering shirts and sweaters over dresses, so that's what I went for. You can totally re-work your entire wardrobe by doing this. It's kind of exhilarating the combinations that you can come up with if you give this a try!

Because the outfit is so solid in colour I went for a bit of a patterned tight to shake things up a bit.
I'm also kind of obsessed with wearing my watch over my sweater. Granted, some may think this looks a touch grandma-ish. But I don't really care.  I love it and think  you should do it! As long  you're omitting the kleenex tucked under the watch, I don't think it exudes old fashion grandma.  If you're doing that then we need to talk. 

If you read my fall jackets post you will see that I have purchased now two out of the four jackets listed. However, I am justifying this purchase because the jacket is amazing, and because I had a gift card to H&M so in total the coat cost me around 8 dollars!

Sweater- Banana Republic
Dress- Uniqlo
Coat- H&M
Watch- DKNY
Purse- Thrifted

Autumn Leaves and Autumn Fashion in Full Swing

Hey there.  Sorry for my lack of post earlier this week. But as you can in this post today, I was enjoying the lovely fall colours up north with my dearest cousin Stephanie. I feel as though every woman needs an interesting article of clothing in their wardrobe. Something that's so unique that every time they put it on they feel instantly fashionable. That's what this blouse is for Stephanie. The top is so unique from the tie neck to the pleated peplum and the spade print. Something like this is so easy to pair with jeans or even a legging to make a super easy and awesome outfit.  Toss on some jewellery and you're looking incredibly chic. 

That's right. It was a yellow canopy of leaves. I've never seen them so gorgeous!

October Week 2- Friday Favourites!

Hay. Let's get this started!

1. This Song : Hayden - Almost Everything

I discovered this on the radio this week on my way home from work. I was listening to CBC Radio 2 and this beauty came on. As soon as I heard that harmonica I was hooked. And thankfully they stated the artist after the song was played so I didn't have to go into a Google frenzy when I got in trying to figure out who the artist was.

Patterned Pants and Scarves

Hey hey.  I don`t know where you are in the world, but where I am it was pretty darn cold out today. Feeling pretty crisp out indeed. So crisp that it called for me to bring out the blanket scarf. Not that I`m complaining!

Doing some blogging on the porch today!

And hey! It`s my first .gif on the blog! How exciting!

Pants - Joe Fresh

Trend Alert: Boxy Plaid Sweaters

I almost feel like starting this post with: "Extra! Extra! Read all about it!" But I can't because it so cheesy. But secretly I really want to.

Okay. Well If you don't know that plaid is trendy this season then I don't know what to tell you.  I hate reading fashion articles telling me that plaid is the new trend for the season. Ugh. I'm sorry. But that makes me sick. If you don't already know that when fall arrives that you need to bust out your plaid then I don't know — let me just say I'm disappointed. Sorry. But lets get it together. Fall = The Season of Plaid.

Okay. Now that's out of the way. I have been noticing a lot of plaid short sleeved boxy sweaters this season. Like a lot of them. And I really want one. So, "Extra! Extra! Read all about it: Boxy Plaid Short Sleeved Sweaters!"

 Forever 21 | Plaid Sweater Tee

ASOS | Mango Checked Boxy Tee

P.S. Sorry if I offended you at the beginning of this post if you didn't know that fall was the season of plaid.

It's all about the flowies

I think I'm going to dub October, Flotober. I don't think I could wear flowies everyday of the month, but at least once a week during the month of October I'm going to give it a try. It just seems like the most perfect weather for these pants.  So here is my first pair for Flotober. 

*Flowies: Wide leg flowy pants. Also known as Palazzo Pants. (Flowies just sounds so much better)


Purse- Thrifted
Watch- DKNY
Flowies- Anthropologie (similar here in a really cool print too!)
Top- H&M
