[OUTFIT] Subtly Paisley

I posted this look to LOOKBOOK a few days ago, but was in a big rush to get to work and didn't have time to post it here, so here it is! I'd been wanting to wear this dress for weeks, but it's been far too hot for it. We had a couple of days of cooler weather and thought I'd give it a go. It was still a little bit too hot out, but I managed. I got this dress when I was visiting my parents in Victoria. My mom and I were shopping around when I noticed this lone dress in the sale section of a beautiful boutique called Suasion. It happened to be my size, and as soon as I had it on I knew. It fit me perfectly and in all the right places. The fabric is a beautifully soft rayon with just the right amount of print. My mom then insisted on getting it for me, claiming that it fit too well. I'm really excited for the weather to get slightly cooler so I can wear this guy more!

[ACCESSORIES] Fall Boots & Booties

I seem to be pretty excited for Fall, but let it be known that it's the fashion I'm excited for! Not so much the cold weather...well maybe some cooler weather. All I know is that Fall turns into Winter, which I'm not most fond of.

Amongst the layering, sweater weather, and beanies, boots and booties are something I'm very excited about. Although I did end up wearing boots most of the summer, most shops are only getting their selection of boots now. There's so much variety of buckles, lace up, metal, and even colour this Fall, you really can't go wrong. Apart from the usual black and browns, we're finding a lot of taupe's and olive's which is a fun change. Take a look! And get your Fall strut on!

[OUTFIT] Plaid is Rad

If you follow me on Instagram, you might see that this summer I subconsciously decided that I would wear distressed shorts basically every day. I then decided hey! Maybe I can make some myself, should be easy enough. Turns out making shorts look distressed and worn is actually a very tedious task. I still have some work to do on them, but they're good enough for now.

[ACCESSORIES] Intergalocktic - Marc by Marc Jacobs

My new purse came in! And I absolutely needed to share with you. My old MbyMJ was 3 years old and the leather on the straps was ready to break. I'm still going to try to get it fixed, but until then I've got this new guy! At first I was thinking of getting the Rebecca Minkoff MAC clutch, but then discovered the Intergalocktic Ozzie Sia by Marc by Marc Jacobs and I totally loved it. I thought it was really different from other MbyMJ's and loved the sort of vintage look of it. I'm really happy I went with this one! I've been using it every day.

[OUTFIT] Fall is Coming

Guys! Fall is unfortunately upon us. Some people really do like fall! I only have some hate for it because it transitions into winter. Here I've got a couple of outfits that are perfect for the transition! Some small changes can do a big difference when it comes to keeping warm. Yes, I'm sure a lot of us wish summer could be here forever, but add a beanie to a dress or wear pants to help stay a little warmer as the days get slightly colder.

I absolutely ADORE this jumper! I haven't been able to wear it much yet because it's been too hot, but now that it's in the mid 20's I can totally sport it. It's the most comfortable yet elegant thing I've ever owned. Wide leg trousers and lovely detail on the bust, I will definitely be wearing this tons this fall...maybe with a few extra added layers.

I'd seen this dress on ASOS a while ago and was totally in love with it but it just stayed on my wishlist. But then! It went on sale! And I absolutely had to snag it! I'm sorry about the wrinkliness of it, but I had to share! In the look on the site, that gal was wearing a beanie with it, and I loved the combination. For fall, I'll probably style this with a beanie and some fun tights.
