Lace-Up Knit Sweater with a Side of Pretty Floral Details

And just like that Fall is in full swing. While I do feel a little bit ripped off because I had to sit out all that summer weather we were having the past few weeks, I can’t deny the beautiful colour palette that autumn has brought with it. This is also the first time that I’m trying to have a positive outlook on Fall because usually this time of year I’m rather grumpy that summer is over. In an effort to stay content while our seasonal temperatures drop I’m turning to cute and feminine pieces as well as playing around with different textures to make Fall more girly and fun.

Feminine Fall Style

For the first time ever, I’m actually getting a bit excited for Fall. Now I know many of you adore this season, but you have to understand that me and Fall haven’t ever been friends. But with every blush pink addition to my Fall wardrobe I have to admit this Autumn season ain’t looking that bad. Now mind you, I’ll probably take all of this back the minute it gets cold enough to warrant wearing a jacket and scarf outside, but until then, I’m going to try and enjoy it.

Fall Vibes and Halloween Makeup Inspo

Fall Vibes with Nest Fragrances

October. The month of Thanksgiving (for us Canadians) and of course Halloween. To be perfectly honest with you, both holidays that historically I’ve never really celebrated. With a European background I was more used to celebrating Día de los Muertos, or All Saints Day which falls on November 1st, and we never really had a Thanksgiving either. Growing up of course as a kid here in Toronto we did the Halloween thing, and over the years we’ve come to embrace the Thanksgiving holiday as it truly is a wonderful time to get together with loved ones and reflect what we’re thankful for.

So I have to admit that this October is a bit exciting, not only with all the PSL and pumpkin spiced baked goods I’ve consumed so far, but also with some Fall decor and Halloween makeup that I’ve been playing around with. So have a read on for all kinds of October goodies that you need to know about.

Flying Into Fall With This Pink Cardigan

Bench Don't Walk Fly

Don’t Walk, Fly.

Every time I wear this pink cardigan from Bench I get asked what the Don’t Walk Fly on the patch means. At first my response was, I don’t know, I didn’t buy it for the patch, I just really liked the pink sweater. But after having someone outright ask if the verbiage was intended to encourage drug use, I had to step back for a moment and think about this – as annoyed by the comment as I was. First off, no reputable brand and clothing designer would put language on their clothing intended to encourage drug use, and even the suggestion was absurd. So then I had to really think hard on it, because apparently this patch was a big deal to everybody who had to ask me what it meant. Continue reading “Flying Into Fall With This Pink Cardigan”

Transitional Summer to Fall Wardrobe

Transitional Summer to Fall Wardrobe

So here we are. That awkward time of year when it’s chilly in the mornings,  scorching hot during the day, and back to being cool at night. Made even more awkward by the summer to fall back to summer confusion. This time of year makes for a great opportunity to play around with layering, not only to look cute but also to keep up with the random weather changes.

The past few days have just been just beautiful. Oh so hot temperatures that had me digging out the cutoffs I had already stowed away for the season. Skirts and dresses also made an appearance, making it almost hard to believe that just a week prior I was wearing jeans and knit sweaters with the occasional lightweight jacket wondering where summer had gone.
