Outfit {Autumn in Niagara + Autumn Orange + Leather & Gold Accents}

This past weekend, Brandon and I went to Niagara Falls for a mini getaway. Although I've been there many times in the past, it was my first time experiencing the falls in autumn. The scenery is quite beautiful this time of year. 

For a stroll in Queen Victoria Park, I kept it simple and comfortable with a trench coat, black skinny jeans and quilted flats.

As I've mentioned many times in previous posts, a classic trench is definitely a wardrobe staple. If you don't already own one, I highly recommend it. It is so versatile. This faux leather sleeve trench coat from Ricki's, which I purchased last year, is one of my favourites! I love how the faux leather and gold details add a bit of an edge to a classic coat. 

I purchased this orange sweater a month ago, at the grand opening of H&M here in my city. This colour is perfect for the fall season. I really love the quilted faux leather detail on the shoulders. 

What I'm wearing :: Leather Sleeve Trench Coat ~ Ricki's.

Outfit {Borrowed From The Boys + Burgundy & Neutrals}

Hello dear readers! For those of us here in the north, today marks the first day of fall. The leaves are beginning to change colour, the temperatures are dropping and the days are becoming shorter. As I mentioned in my previous post, fall is my favourite season, which means I've been eagerly awaiting and preparing for weeks! I've put away my summer wardrobe, reorganized and updated, and now I'm ready for cool temperatures, cozy layers and deep/warm hues.


A classic trench coat is definitely a wardrobe staple that every woman should have. This one has been with me through many seasons. To bring out the burgundy in this bouclé skirt, I wore a burgundy sweater and kept the rest of the outfit simple with neutrals. This oversized burgundy V-neck sweater, which belonged to my father, has been a fall wardrobe favourite for many years. It's warm and cozy yet thin enough to tuck into a skirt.  It's surprising what you can find in a man's closet. 


What I'm wearing :: Trench Coat ~ Suzy Shier. 
Sweater ~ Arnold Palmer (borrowed from the boys). 
Bouclé Skirt ~ Suzy Shier.  Pumps ~ JustFab. Watch ~ Cleo.

Outfit {Feathers & Sparkle}

This dress from the Temperance by Bootlegger 2013 Holiday Collection is by far one of my favourite dresses from my wardrobe. Anyone who knows me well knows that I get easily excited about fashion, but I was beyond thrilled when I first saw this dress. It was definitely love at first sight! If only it was appropriate to wear ostrich feathers at every occasion! 

I wanted the feathers to be the main focus so I kept the rest of the outfit fairly simple. To bring out the subtle sparkles in the polka dot top, I added a sparkly belt and clutch, and sparkly shoes.

This blazer from Forever 21 has been a great wardrobe staple. The faux leather on the bottom half of the sleeve really helps in elevating a relatively plain black blazer.

Outfit {Black & Cobalt Stripes + White + Silver}

If you don't already know, fall is my FAVOURITE season when it comes to fashion. Likely due to my love for jackets and blazers. They are my favourite layering piece and are ideal for transitioning between seasons. September can be a bit of a challenge when it comes to fashion. The sun can still be rather warm which gives us the illusion that summer is still here, but the cool wind reminds us that fall is just around the corner. 

My love for fall is also due to the many beautiful colours that surround us, not only in fashion but in nature as well. One of the major colour trends that I'm most thrilled about for fall is cobalt blue. Especially when paired with black. This striped black and cobalt skirt has been a great summer wardrobe staple due to it's thin sheer overlay. Paired with a blazer for a bit of warmth, it has proven to be a great transitional piece for the month of September.
