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!

High vs. low: Embellished sweatshirts

Embellished sweatshirts

High: J. Crew | Medium: Loft | Low: Gap

I’m in love with the embellished sweatshirt trend happening right now. It’s casual meets chic; comfortable enough to toss on for a stroll, but with a bit of sparkle to take your outfit up a notch. I think the J. Crew sweatshirt is my favourite of the bunch, but the Loft number is probably the best bang for your buck – especially if you’re worried about dropping a ton of cash (on… a sweatshirt.)

A bit of black, a bit of sparkle

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!

This is basically my fall uniform – comfy jeans, loafers and a blazer over a tee. Seriously, it’s hard to go wrong with a t-shirt & blazer combo (I was actually quoted in The Kit about this recently!)

Do you have any particular clothes or accessories that are your go-to items for fall?

A pop of pink

Dress: Gap | Belt: Nine West | Heels: Nine West | Purse: Kate Spade

None of these pieces are new, but I love this colour combo so much – pink and black is fun and classy. Actually snagged those heels awhile back at the Kind Exchange in Toronto. They were in mint condition and a fraction of the actual store price (score!)

Some silver sparkle

You’ve probably noticed a different vibe to this post… a personal style post for a change! It’s a new direction for the blog but definitely something I’ve been wanting to do for awhile. I love fashion, I love Toronto, so here we go – I’m merging the two. Can’t wait to share outfit ideas & hear your feedback!

These sparkly silver Gap flats were the inspiration behind this first look. I’ve been on the hunt for silver shoes for awhile, and these ones are just so comfy (and not too expensive – I don’t like spending a fortune on trendy items that might go in and out of style.)

Have you hopped on the silver trend yet?

Who says fall fashion means a switch to neutrals, heavy knits and dark colours? Sure, I love chunky sweaters and boots as much as the next gal, but it’s great to see fall clothing push the envelope a bit. I love the collections out right now that have pops of colour and bold patterns. Those pink gloves from Kate Spade are gorgeous – and I’m excited to see that polka dot dress show up in a Gap near me!

Have you spotted any fabulous fall fashions yet?
