We took a stroll through Toronto’s lovely Cabbagetown neighbourhood over the weekend, and boy, it was chilly! This crisp autumn weather necessitates lots of layers – meaning a preppy pairing like chambray under a sweater makes perfect sense.

Do you have any favourite layered outfits?


Gold shimmer manicure


It’s November, and you know what that means – holiday party season is a-comin’! I’m always looking for new ways to add some glam to my look for the holiday season without breaking the bank, and an at-home manicure definitely does the trick. To get this gold shimmer, I layered on two types of polish – a matte base and a sparkly second coat, using Revlon’s “Elegant” shade and China Glaze’s “Champagne Kisses.”



Do you have any go-to manicures for the holiday season?

Classy Camo

Coat: Zara (Old) | Shirt: Gap | Necklace: Aldo (Similar)
Skirt: H&M | Purse: Club Monaco | Shoes: Nine West (Old)

I’ve never been a huge fan of camo for clothes – especially the big, chunky variety that looks way too much like actual military gear. But when I spotted this skirt on sale at H&M, I decided to give it a shot. I love how it gives a bit of an edge to an outfit!

C’est la vie





Sweater: Forever 21 | Necklace: Forever 21 | Shorts: Old Navy | Boots: Old Navy | Purse: Kate Spade

When I saw this sweater, I instantly fell in love. It’s hard to go wrong with a charming French phrase scrawled onto a cozy knit. Picked up the necklace at the same time and barely noticed a dent on my credit card… you’ve gotta love Forever 21 for that! Paired with some shorts, tights, and boots, it’s a comfortable fall outfit that’s totally on trend.

Bright red & polka dots

Shirt: J. Crew | Skirt: RW&Co. | Purse: Smart Set | Heels: Nine West

I love playing around with colours & patterns in my outfits… today was polka dots paired with bright red, featuring one of my all-time favourite shirts: a silk blouse from J. Crew. Unfortunately it’s getting pretty chilly out, so I don’t think I’ll be wearing outfits like this much longer – might as well enjoy it while I can!

It’s hard to top jeans and a tee for comfort. I always like to add a little something extra through – like these pink flats, which give a simple outfit a bit of pop. You can actually walk all day in these shoes, too, which is definitely an added bonus for a girl in the city.

PS: Notice how the leaves are starting to change across Toronto? I guess it’s really fall now!

A bit of black, a bit of sparkle






Necklace: J. Crew (Similar) | Shirt: Gap | Skirt: H&M
Heels: Marc Fisher (old) | Purse: Calvin Klein (Similar)

I wanted to wear something a bit different for my birthday party… and a studded faux-leather skirt fit the bill. It’s not my typical “look” but I think wearing it with a simple tee and some J. Crew bling toned down the edgy nature of the skirt. I had a few Marilyn Monroe moments in the wind that night, but it was worth it!

PS: Doesn’t my hair look red in these pics? I haven’t dyed it lately… weird!
