Fall Chenille

It’s my favourite time of year and we are in complete full swing. Despite the gloomy rain, I pretty much love everything about the fall season. This year, I have been consumed with school. I am no longer a student and am now a full blown teacher – hard to believe, eh? There is nothing I love more, than a comfy sweater to spend those long school days in and this year, I am LOVING chenille fabric.

Sweater: c/o Pink Blush  / Jeans: Urban Planet / Shoes: Converse

Chenille is a soft, velvet-like fabric. It has an amazing feel, is super cozy and PERFECT for these chilly fall days we are having. I got this at my favourite women’s online boutique, Pink Blush. I can almost guarantee you will find a gorgeous piece for any season in their boutique. My closet is certainly stocked full of chic items (thank you Pink Blush!). 

My go-to look for this sweater is accompanying it with jeans on the bottom. I think that jeans are a great fall piece to have (and every woman should have a favourite pair of jeans in their closet ready to go). There are many other ways you could style this sweater. You can style it with a cute fall skirt, or even with some darker pants to really make the colour POP in the sweater. Another way I wear this chenille is with a third piece on top of the sweater along with the jeans.

Having a third piece to any outfit takes your look up a notch, because it adds another element. My typical third piece is a vest in the fall because it gives the look texture and I love the layered look! However, you could do a cute jacket or scarf as well (great opportunity to pattern mix with the scarf!). There are so many ways you can style a fall sweater…which is exactly what I love about sweaters in general. Also, I can get across enough that this fabric is SO SOFT!

Styled Bookshelf Inspiration

When it comes to organization, I like to think of myself as being skilled. However, there is a difference between being efficient and stylish in your home organization. I lack the skills in making my home “stylish”. Whenever I look at a new space to redesign, I have a lot of difficulty forming that image in my head.

My go to tool to help me start brainstorming ideas (which I sometimes imitate exactly), is PinterestAs some of you may know, I am in the midst of redecorating my bedroom. It is definitely a slow process since I am on a budget, and don’t have a ton of time to dedicate to doing so.

This past weekend, I dedicated my time to thinking about my two book shelves. I have never been one to style a book shelf so that it is a decorative piece in the room. Well, this time around, things are about to change!

Today, I am rounding up some of my favourite book shelf looks from Pinterest. These photos are what will be inspiring me for this part of my redesign! Enjoy!

Fun on the Farm

It’s been a hot summer, and I am more than ready for the weather to cool down! There’s something about the smell of fall hanging in the air and the crisp winds starting to pick up that puts a smile on my face. Fall is my favourite season and time of year and I love going to the farm to kick off the season! However, just because the temperatures drop, doesn’t mean you pack the dresses away!

Dress: c/o Pink Blush / Jacket: Old Navy / Shoes: Skechers / Purse: Thrifted

In fact, this is the perfect time of year to transition some of your summer staples to the cooler season! This grey wrap midi-dress is one of my new favourite dresses. I picked it up at Pink Blush and I cannot get enough of it! It is the simplest piece to style and extremely comfortable. As many of you know, Pink Blush is my favourite online boutique to pick up key pieces for my wardrobe! It is super si

mple to fill your cart with amazing finds and I am never disappointed!

I have already styled this dress a couple of ways, but today I wanted to show you my favourite way. Everybody knows that a good jean jacket is pretty much necessary to have in one’s wardrobe. I, personally, have three and I cycle them in and out of outfits as needed. For this look, I decided to pair it with my white denim jacket to give it a summer-fall transition feel.

White is such a tricky colour to style around this time of year. Sometimes it works for the cooler seasons, but it is primarily a summer colour. However, pairing it with other fall toned pieces creates the perfect September ensemble! I think that this wrap dress contrasts the white denim, all in all creating a very fun September look!

Last, but not least, I went for a more casual shoe. First of all, I was spending my morning at the farmer’s market and also running a few errands. Second of all, it’s a cute casual and comfortable look while still maintaining an element of flare! You can definitely jazz this ensemble up with a pair of low kitten heels or even wedges!

Fall is quickly approaching and I can’t contain my excitement! If you need me, I’ll be sipping my pumpkin spice latte, wrapped in a blanket scarf, shopping for pumpkins!

Happy Fall!

Beautiful Bedroom Inspiration

I am finding that as I approach the middle of my twenties, I am in a constant state of transition. Recently, I moved back into my parents’ house. So often I think twenty-somethings, like me, dream about this independent lifestyle (especially after university) and then realize, how expensive it actually is to be completely independent from your parents.

Unfortunately, I cannot call myself independent just yet. That is where I have been struggling with this weird student-to- adult transition. Moving home, I came back to a bedroom full of stuffed animals, old posters, and CLUTTER!!! To say the least, I have a lot of work ahead of me, so that has lead me to this.

Two words: BEDROOM. MAKEOVER. I have been talking about it for a while, but never seriously considered it. Why? Well, first of all, I was living in an entirely different place, so why make over something I am not spending time in? All the more reason to begin the process now!

In order to kick off my bedroom makeover, I am going to showcase a few different looks and styles I found on Pinterest. What’s a makeover without a little inspiration, right?

I have always been a major fan of pink! As I get older, I am transitioning into seeing pink as an accent colour rather than the main focus. Seems like the older I get, the lighter the shade of pink I like (weird, huh?). Above all, my colour scheme is looking like a mixture of grey hues, blush pinks and pops of gold!

I plan to keep you along for my bedroom makeover journey! It’s going to be a long haul, but I feel it will be TOTALLY worth it in the end…

STAY TUNED!

Whimsical Wrap Dress

Summer is in full swing, and what better way to celebrate the sunny season than with a whimsical getaway?! A couple of weeks ago, I hopped on a plane and spontaneously flew to Punta Cana! Punta Cana is such a magical place, and every moment I was there, I felt like a true princess.

Dress: c/o PinkBlush / Shoes: Old Navy

Vacations are a time to kick back and relax, but also the time to experiment with your style! Tropical prints, light fabric, and bold colours are all apart of the vibes you can play with! Before this getaway, I had never ventured to the islands, or anywhere remotely tropical…so needless to say, it was my opportunity to have FUN!

PinkBlush is one of my go-to boutiques for fun prints and feminine style. I literally always find something that makes me feel amazing. This beautiful wrap tie dress caught my eye instantly when I was curating my vacation looks. I just love the vibes it gives off. This isn’t a dress I would normally gravitate to because the print is outside my comfort zone. However, I took a chance and I am SO glad that I did.

I love the ruffle detail in the neckline, and how it ties around the waist. It’s such a unique and fun style, and perfect for your tropical getaway! The pops of colour in the print really resonated with me, and I feel like it’s just such a simple dress to style. Here, I styled it with my go-to flip flops, but throwing on a pair of neutral wedges takes the look to a whole new level!

As always, PinkBlush didn’t let me down, and I continue to drool over their perfectly feminine styles.

CHEERS!
