Fall Faves

So last week we had an actual blizzard! I’ve lived North of 60 for the majority of my life and never before have I experienced a bonafide blizzard. It was cray. Anyway, things have calmed down weather-wise and we’re back to crisp and sunny fall days. Fall is my favourite season for fashion. I love me some chunky knits, layers, and boots.

Here are a few of the things I’ve been reaching for over and over this fall.

This gorgeous oversize sweater from Urban Outfitters.

It’s like wrapping myself in an afgan. Delicious.

These Mavi jeans.

It’s all about the details with these babies. The zippers at the ankle, the panels at the knee, the leather pulls on the pocket zipper, and the inky indigo colour add up to the perfect pair of jeans. We all know that perfect jeans are nearly impossible to find!

This Bite Agave Lip Mask in champagne.

Colder weather means dry skin and chapped lips. This lip treatment is super thick and hydrating. You can wear it overnight but it adds a bit of sheen for daytime as well. It’s also a food grade product. You could eat this stuff. You know, if you’re into that kind of thing.

This Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Diffused Heat.

Just. Look. At. That. Luxe rosegold packaging and a built in highlighter for a stunning marbled blush. I mean come on. I die. It gives the cheeks a gorgeous rosy glow. Love.

What are you loving this fall?

One Piece Three Ways

I have a few rules when shopping:

1. Don’t drink and shop (I’ll never forget the regrettable sweater incident of 2011);

2. Don’t shop on an empty stomach, you want to be thinking clearly;

3. Don’t buy a piece unless you can visualize it with three distinct outfits using items you already have in your wardrobe.

The last rule is important because you don’t want to end up with a fantastic top that works only one way. Who wants to be seen in the same look over and over again? Not I.

So friends, I give you a new post: One Piece Three Ways.

Sunnies: Barefoot Contessa

These are just a few of the looks I can create with this romper. I could also add tights, boots, and a sweater for winter or pair it with a skirt and wear it as a top. The possibilities are endless. If you don’t have a romper, swap it out for a sundress! This is just a small sample of the ways you can create unique looks by changing the accessories.

Do you think about versatility when you’re shopping? I’d love to hear your tips!
