pink flats in Greenville

{Jeffrey Campbell Vionnet Flats;
Free People Bittersweet Tee (more colours here);
7 For All Mankind Slim Illusion Skinny Jeans (similar);
Free People Denim Jacket;
Rebecca Minkoff Mini Suki Saddle Bag (love this colour, other colours here);
Urban Outfitters Fedora (similar here);

Hope everyone had a great holiday!  We headed to Greenville, SC, for Thanksgiving.  It felt like summer when we were there, but looked like the beginning of fall.  It was SO beautiful.  We had so much fun exploring Greenville.  I packed about 6 pairs of shoes, but for 2 days straight wore these Jeffrey Campbell Vionnet Flats.  They are extremely comfortable.  I walked for hours in them.  No blisters, nothing.  (I almost sized down because at first they felt a bit big, but thankfully decided to keep them.  Although I'm nervous they'll stretch.)  They also come in grey and white!

#OOTD / winter white

#OOTD / winter white

I'm a day late posting my #OOTD (sorry!).  We loved Greenville so much we stayed longer than we planned.  Today's #OOTD is one of my favourites.  I love an all white outfit for fall/winter.  I'm obsessing over this Madewell Fringe Cardigan Sweater, which sadly sold out in my size as I was browsing (currently 25% off with code THATSALE).  Shopbop is having a 'Buy More, Save More' sale with code GOBIG16, which ends Monday.  I love these J Brand Maria High Rise Legging Jeans.  They're the perfect pair of white jeans for sneakers, booties and over-the-knee boots.  I also love these Rachel Comey Mars Sherpa Booties.  The lining will keep those toes extra toasty.  This Free People Essential Backpack is not on sale, but it's at a great price of $50.  Just add a white tee to this look and your 'winter white' outfit is complete!

Happy shopping!

cozy sweater & over the knee socks

 {Free People All Mine Sweater (comes in 5 colours);
Free People Over the Knee Socks (old, love these);
Free People November 2016 Catalogue}

Just a quick post before the holidays.  We're heading to Greenville for Thanksgiving and I cannot wait to explore the city.  I'll be bringing this Free People All Mine Sweater, which is the coziest sweater ever.  (See post here on another way I styled this sweater.)  I went with ivory instead of the red I was eyeing because I have a similar sweater in red and was shocked to find I did not have an ivory sweater similar to this one.  But now that I own this sweater, I want them in all of the colours, even red.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Check back on Friday for a new #OOTD post.
Happy shopping!

summer dress + booties + denim jacket

{Free People Midi Dress (similar here);
Isabel Marant Etoile Booties (similar here);
Free People Denim Jacket (love this sherpa one here for added warmth!);
Urban Outfitters Fedora (similar here);

The weather lately has been reminding me of Canada.  It went from the 80s to the 50s in less than 2 weeks.  What happened to high 60s/70s weather?  I had so many outfits planned to transition my summer clothes into fall, but it became too cold.  As much as I love sweater weather, I was hoping to get there a little slower.  I know, I know, it's November, but I was wearing this a few weeks ago.  It started warming up again near the end of the week with Saturday hitting the mid-70s.  It was perfect so we headed to the beach.  I pulled out this Free People off-the-shoulder midi dress, which is a maxi on me because I'm so petite (last seen here paired with lace-up sandals).  I paired it with my favourite Isabel Marant Etoile booties and this Free People denim jacket, which I needed near the end of the day because the temp has dropped drastically again.  Adding a pair of booties and a denim jacket is the perfect way to transition a summer dress.  If the weather allows it.  Or you can add over-the-knee boots, tights and a parka.

#OOTD / ruffle sleeve sweater

ruffle sleeve sweater #outfit #inspo

Happy Friday!  The holidays are coming up (starting with Thanksgiving here in the States next week) and last week I posted a full-on velvet outfit (see post here) because I'm obsessed with velvet at the moment and I'm not sure anything screams holidays more than velvet (okay, maybe sequins), but if you're looking for a more low-key look, jeans are always a 'do' for the holidays IMO.  My tip is to keep them clean for the holidays (i.e., no rips).  These 7 For All Mankind The High Waist Skinny Jeans have a high waist and stretch, which is a must for the holidays because food.  This Endless Rose Ruffle Sleeve Sweater is the perfect topper because it's cozy, but the ruffle sleeves add a special touch.  With a simple outfit I like to add a pop of colour (my preference being pink, always).  This J.Crew Plaid Scarf is so pretty and will also keep you warm.  I just purchased these Jeffrey Campbell Vionnet Flats and they are SO soft and perfect for holiday shopping.

Happy shopping!

embroidered booties

{Ash Heidi Embroidered Booties (they also come in black);
FP Beach Dress (similar here and here and pair this lace slip with a sweater for a similar look!);
Free People Denim Jacket (last seen on the blog here, similar here);
Brixton Dalila Hat (colour I'm wearing sold out);
Prada Sunglasses}

One of my must-haves for fall (see my list of must-haves here) is a pair of booties.  They go with pretty much everything so you can never go wrong splurging on a new pair.  Since I have plain black and brown booties covered (I would start with those), I decided to get a 'fun' pair.  These Ash Heidi Embroidered Booties were exactly what I was looking for.  The embroidery is delicate and not overpowering, but takes this lace sweaterdress and denim jacket combo up a notch.  As they will basically any 'basic' outfit.  How cute are the butterflies on the back?  These are seriously one of the prettiest pair of booties I have ever seen.  Bonus: the heel is not too high, but still gives you some height.

These embroidered booties will look great with skinny jeans and cropped jeans (I'd pair them with a chunky knit), skirts (this denim one, for ex.) and dresses (this striped one, for ex. - I love mixing prints).  Embroidery is a huge trend for fall and below are a few of my other favourites:

Free People Sweet Tennessee Embroidered Mini Dress (perfect for holiday parties!)
BLANKNYC Embroidered Faux Leather Moto Jacket
Tularosa Mara Embroidered Satin Bomber Jacket (a bomber jacket is also on my must-have list for fall!)
Joe's Jeans Bella Jean Jacket
GRLFRND x REVOLVE Helena High Rise Straight Jean
Ulla Johnson Embroidered Suede Aggie Booties

Happy shopping!

(P.s. the pictures are a bit grainy because we're using our old, old camera because I dropped and broke our new lens!  Our other lens that came with our new camera is currently being fixed because it stopped working.)

#OOTD / velvet crush

#OOTD / velvet crush

'I would drape myself in velvet if it were socially acceptable.'  -George Costanza

Same, George, same.  There are SO many gorgeous velvet pieces out there, it's hard to choose just one!  I LOVE this Free People Velvet Mini (it comes in 3 other colours).  If you're not quite wanting to drape yourself in velvet like George and I, you can stick to an accessory: a velvet choker (ASOS has many to choose from), a velvet handbag (this Rebecca Minkoff Love Quilted Velvet Crossbody Bag is stunning), or velvet booties (how gorgeous are these Aquazzura Velvet Ankle Boots?  These L.K. Bennett Pellino Floral Booties are also gorgeous and more budget-friendly.) 

Check out my other velvet picks here!

So now that it's finally starting to cool down here, Spell comes out with the beautiful 'Lovebird' collection.  These pictures were shot in Santorini and I'm now dreaming of a vacation, even though I said I was looking forward to cooler temps.  I think we all need a vacation after yesterday, amiright?  It's not Santorini, but we are taking a mini vacation and heading to Greenville, SC, which looks beautiful!

You can view the entire Spell 'Lovebird' Lookbook here and shop the items here!

floral tunic & chuck taylors

 {Free People Violet Hill Printed Tunic (comes in 4 colours!)
Urban Outfitters Fedora (similar here);
Converse Chuck Taylor All Star High Top (also here - a pair of pink ones are next on my list!);

I fell in love with this Free People Violet Hill Printed Tunic as soon as I came across it on the Free People site and it's even more beautiful in person.  I love that you can wear it so many different ways.  I'm lucky because I'm so petite I can wear this tunic as a dress.  I paired it with classic High Top Chuck Taylors because it was very warm out, but mostly because I love the contrast to the plunging neckline and feminine details.  I will also be pairing it with these Jeffrey Campbell pink booties for a night out and over-the-knee boots, as shown on the blog here.  When it gets cooler here I'll also be layering this tunic with a boyfriend cardigan and it also looks great layered with a black turtleneck and skinny jeans.

#OOTD / fall uniform: slouchy sweater, high-low hem jeans & booties

#OOTD / fall uniform

Happy Friday!  It's sweater weather today and I could not be more excited!  I'll probably have to take the sweater off later in the day, but this morning is cool and I can actually wear a sweater and a pair of jeans.  Today's #OOTD sums up my fall uniform: slouchy sweaters, cropped jeans (I'm a huge fan of the high-low hem!) and booties.  I'm also a big fan of bright colours, especially red, for A/W and this Free People All Mine Sweater looks SO cozy.  (It comes in a bunch of colours if you're not a fan of red.)  I'm obsessing over these Citizens of Humanity Liya Hi-Lo Hem Jeans.  Last, but not least, a pair of booties to complete the outfit.  These Steve Madden Pistol Booties are currently part of the Nordstrom sale that's happening until November 13!
