Hope everyone is super excited for school!
Yesterday was so lovely! For labour day, my family drove down to see my grandparents on my dad's side and his brother and sister. It was such a nice way to end the summer!
I'm wearing a dress from Aritzia (Talula) that I love! I've been wearing it all summer long so I figured why not give it the honour of last summer outfit?
Hope everyone is super excited for school!
Hello my fellow fashion slaves!
Today I present to you THE TRENDS FOR FALL/WINTER 2014 as prescribed by magazines and runway shows alike! Now, sit back, relax, and enjoy the fashion show!
It was the first thing my mom noticed while flipping through magazines like Vogue and Porter, "oh," she said "the 70s are back!" And it's true! The flowy silhouette, the knee high boots, the wide leg pants, the platforms, THE WIDE BRIMMED HATS, it's all coming back!
For those of you who like to simply add one or two major trends to your existing styles (YOU GO GIRLS!) here's what I recommend.
Add a wide leg trouser, a big felt hat and some classic knee high, heeled boots. If you're more into the hair then add the classic early 70s bouffant.
Jewel Tone vs Pastel
Another thing I noticed while scrolling through runaway shows (again my ticket to the actual event was probably lost in the mail..) was the contrast in colours. It seemed pretty half and half; one half favouring soft pinks, beiges, and pearlescent shades, the other half favouring rich burgundies, blues and greens.
This is a trend that comes around every Fall/Winter because, let's be real here, who doesn't love sweater weather? This year make a splash with a patterned, graphic, or boldly coloured sweater choice.
Material: Shearling, Leather, Knit
The big three! If you're buying a coat, look for one (or all three) of these materials!
Menswear and Capes
Opt for menswear staples and drape like silhoettes this season. The cape coat is a super easy and chic way to achieve this look.
All images (except the three clothing options which were on Shopbob.com) are from vogue.co.uk

Hope this inspires you!
So much love!
Yeah so I guess I'm not as sad as I thought I would be to break out the sweaters and warmer layers. To be honest, fall/autumn and spring are the only two seasons when I'm most comfortable temperature wise. Why? As much as I love summer, I don't love being so hot I can't sleep/move/eat/live, and for winter as much as I adore snow and the stillness of the season, I don't love -35'C nights/days/weeks. But fall and spring are so much more mild making me so much more happy to frolic around!
I absolutely love these leather leggings (Wilfred, Aritzia), they go with everything and they're comfy AND the best thing for fall. My tee shirt and sweater, from Zara, are also a perfect combo for the leaves that will soon be changing. My shoes are SixtySeven, my scarf is my mom's (thanks mom heheh) and my purse Michael Kors.
Also side note, I'm looking to get a lighter coloured purse for fall, any suggestions?
Exciting things are on the way!
With school starting and summer ending I have a weirdly mixed excited but sad feeling in my stomach. I'm crazy excited to start school again, see my friends, start living in my new apartment. But with summer ending, I leave my family again, say goodbye to shorts, and kiss warm, southern breezes goodbye. Fall in Canada is cold and it happens really quickly.. Sadbear!
But, because I feel like fall is really when you turn over a new leaf (funny right) I thought I would give you a sneak peak at some of the things I'm going to be working on!
--> A magical "what you NEED in your wardrobe"
-->A Fall Fashion wrap up and quick summary
--> Some beauty product reviews and how tos
--> And a ton of fall looks! Get ready for scarves.
So much love! The weekend is almost here!
Back to School is one of the most exciting times in a young girl's life because it presents her with an opportunity to reinvent herself for the school year. I loved it because it let me be whoever I wanted to be! I also remember having this magazine cutting problem where I would cut up all the magazines I could find so that I could stick them places.. Like on my notebooks! So HIZZAH let's revive that old love of mine!
Pretty much all you need is a notebook, a magazine or two, glue, scissors and clear, packing tape!
Put glue all over the cover, but only a thin thin layer.
Place the images you want on the glue and let them dry.
Once dry put the clear tape over the images to give it a water-resistant shield!
BAM! Done! That was easy!
I've noticed recently that I'm gravitating towards basic pieces.
Not a bad thing, just a thing I've noticed.
It seems like that more tired I get the more I find myself in my trusty white shirt and plaid pants.
Call me basic, but I'm happily so.
Welcome last week of summer and welcome last week of work! Jam out with me to this sweet coconut records song I promise it'll keep you feeling lighthearted during this sad week!
Well friends today is the last day of what has been a really tough week for me. This weekend could not have come sooner (for realz). After today I have one more week of camp and then back to university for more learning!
Et c'est tout!
So much love!
I know you all are probably so curious about who inspires my style choices, so here are my top three style icons! I have found that over the years, having one sole leading lady to help guide my personal style was very limiting. I felt like a clone of another person, which did not leave room for my own creativity. I have also found that every woman can name at least 2 or 3 other women who inspire them, so really we are all connected through our creativity which is pretty cool right? By basing who I admire on women who inspire me, but also keeping in mind who inspire them, I feel that I can find more depth in why I dress the way I do and also it helps me style the way I live my life. So here they are, my 3 top style icons!
Her 60s inspired dresses, and her always professional outfits put her on my list. I love her class!
This is where my bad girl/grunge side from. This girl inspires me to be tougher and a little weirder.
And lastly, my patron saint, Leandra Medine! She inspires me everyday with her chic yet radical looks.

Now you know who I admire!
