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.

When thinking of fall colours, pastel hues, like blush pink, don't usually come to mind. But the soft pastel shades from the spring/summer season will be sticking around for fall and I couldn't be more thrilled. This blush pink peplum top is one of my favourite pieces from my wardrobe and is proving to be a great summer-to-fall transition piece.
I love pairing feminine with edgy, and metallic accessories are perfect for creating this desired look. Throughout summer, metallic silvers and golds were popular trends but gunmetal is the perfect metallic shade for the upcoming fall season due to it's darker hue. It's also a huge fall beauty trend. Gunmetal eye shadow and nail polish were seen all over the fall 2014 runway shows. How will you rock this colour trend this upcoming season?

Hello all! I was invited to do a guest blog post today and gladly accepted. Any opportunity to get all dressed up is an opportunity worth entertaining! My name is Shenni, and have been assisting my dear friend Chantal for the past year or so with her blog, acting as her on again, off again, photographer. Today we decided to put Chantal in the driver's seat while I stood in her place.
I had a blast enhancing my features with black, browns, and golds, and to any of you who have already seen my last "Other Side of the Camera" shoot know how much I love animal print. This over the shoulder tunic paired with a tight black pencil skirt gave my body a feminine shape while highlighting some discreet sexiness by showing a little skin up top.
The newest addition to my wardrobe has to be the star of my shoot, my black, 2 look, Steve Madden handbag. I went crazy over the gold accents, and can instantly change up my look by merely turning my bag around. Speaking of versatility, jewellery can be a great joy to manipulate when forming an outfit. This gold bracelet is actually a necklace folded three times over.

Hello dear readers. The weekend is finally here and I'm super thrilled. Lots of excitement today. First of all, I've had to endure an entire week of rain so I'm very happy to see the sun today. Secondly, my lovely sister is visiting, along with my brother in-law, niece and nephew. I haven't seen them in over a year so you can just imagine the level of excitement as I woke up this morning.
Recently my sister has started selling jewelry. She will be hosting a jewelry party here this evening to showcase some of the pieces and I'm super thrilled to spend a few hours looking pretty and trying on various pieces. The Cleopatra Necklace that I wore in a recent outfit post (which you can find here) is part of her collection. I've only been able to view the online catalogues so I'm really looking forward to seeing the items in person and trying them on. Hopefully by the end of the weekend I will have a few new statement pieces added to my wardrobe.
Speaking of jewelry, as you all know, I've been hosting a Stella & Dot online trunk show this week and wanted to showcase this breathtaking feather necklace that I've been obsessing over. Out of all the pieces available, the Pegasus Necklace is my favourite! I love that you can wear it both casually and dressy.
Paired with a utility jacket, a white tee, skinny jeans and tall brown boots, for a casual outfit with a touch of chic.
|Paired with a black fit-and-flare dress, a leather jacket, stilettos, a gold clutch and red lipstick for a special occasion or a fancy dinner date. An all black outfit is the perfect backdrop. It really makes this necklace stand out. |
