Fuzzy Fall Neutrals – Thanksgiving

It is Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada and I could not be more thankful for the many blessings in my life. We have so much to be thankful for, it is sometimes overwhelming. Carrying our beautiful baby boy has made me appreciate every ounce of health and wellness both myself and my family have. Ive been so blessed to have the opportunity to be pregnant and grow our little turtle, feeling him move and kick  (even at all hours of the night) and I am trying desperately to cherish every second as its going by way too fast!!

I am also so thankful for all of you and the ongoing support and love I receive on a daily basis. This blog has brought so many amazing people into my life and I truly love sharing this experience with all of you! So thank you!!

Lastly I am so thankful for my health, my home and family. Encountering so many people on a daily basis has made me realize that life can be really hard on people and although this economy has hit our family hard, as I am sure many of you can relate, the greatest blessings carry no price tag.

Now onto the outfit!!;) I have been living in this fuzzy sherpa vest that I picked up from Anthropologie last fall. Unfortunately it is no longer available however I have found exact replicas for much cheaper!! You can thank me later;) I wanted to put together a cozy neutral outfit, great for a Thanksgiving style option or a day at work! One of the reason I love this vest so much is the versatility. I wore it earlier in the week with a plaid top and jeans for a casual look, it looks great dressed up as Ive paired it here with this non maternity long sleeve midi dress that is bump friendly and only $26! Lastly I couldn’t help but add some suede and leather details for the full fall effect!!

I have linked all of the outfit details below! Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend!

Tanya Cardigan By Brunette The Label

I picked up this cardigan on my recent trip to regina and I’m seriously in love. For all the tall girls out there it is the perfect length, has 3/4 inch sleeve and the combination of black and white knot make it literally capable of being worn with anything!

Vince Camuto Melaya Suede Boots

I got these bad boys a true the Nordstrom sale this past summer and they are by far my favourite fall boot. The neutral suede colouring makes it an easy pairing and I am such a huge fan of the over the knee style! Insert heart eyes emoji!

Kat Von D Project Chimps Liquid Lipstick (In Store at Sephora)

This lipstick is definitely a fall favourite, it is the perfect matte red with orange undertones! Also 20% of the sales for this liquid lipstick will be donated to help end animal testing. This liquid lip is 100% cruelty free and an absolute must for your fall makeup line!

Jackson Rowe Scout Scarf

As usual anything plaid ends up falling into this list. I am obsessed with the entire line of Jackson Rowe Scout Scarfs, including this shade in a crimson! Oh and they are only $36!! Can be  bought at Trinity Clothing in Regina and Miss Boss in Edmonton!

One Fated Knight Archbishop Hobo (In Edmonton at Miss Boss)

I nabbed this bag at the recent 50% off sale and I couldn’t not be happier the my purchase! It is the perfect cognac shade to go with all my endless fall outfits!

Fall Fashion Inspiration From 2015

I wanted to start my fall posts this season with a little look back at some of my favourite outfits from last fall! I can’t believe fall is just around the corner, I really have no idea where summer went! Minus Christmas, fall is my absolute favourite time of year! The earthy and rich red tones, warm textures, riding boots, oversized sweaters, layers, I love it all!!!

So many of these looks I am still loving, the plaid scarfs and buffalo plaid tops, oversized wool drape coat, anything olive of course, patterned and blanket scarves, rich brown details, long cardigans and furry vests. I am sure you will see many of these pieces this fall just paired a but differently!

Some essentials I still can not live without this fall are my C’est Moi layering tanks, my Matt and Nat handbags including the Clarke and Kintla, as well as my One Fated Knight King bag, my Jackson Rowe Scarves in Olive and Merlot,my BB Dakota Grady Wool Coat, my stackable Eliasz & Ella Jewelry and my Vince Camuto Suede Riding Boots!

I hope this post inspires your fall wardrobe to come!

August Favourites

I am a little late but better late than never right! While the rest of the world is enjoying a smooth transition into September, It has been colder than usual here in Edmonton so my August Favourites are more geared towards fall and adjusting to the colder temperatures!

Hope you enjoy! xo



Matt & Nat Clarke in Cocoa (here here) The moment I saw this bag online I knew I had to have it, thanks to Miss Boss I was able to get the colour I wanted and it is perfection. The rich chocolate brown enhances any outfit and this will be a favourite for this fall season for sure!

Jackson Rowe Olive in Hunter (here & here): It is no secret I am love this olive green colour for fall and this scarf is so comfortable and looks amazing with every outfit casual or dressy. Jackson Rowe has become one of my favourite Canadian brands this year and you can shop them locally here at Miss Boss!

Chanel Rouge Allure in Passion: I am loving red lipstick and my absolute favourite is this Chanel lippy! It is the perfect red, goes on flawlessly and last all day! If you are looking for a classic lipstick this is your girl!

Buxom Lip Polish in Samantha: This has been my favourite lip gloss for over a year now, I fell off the gloss train for a bit as I was loving the liquid lipsticks but this month I got back on the train and this gloss is the perfect nude with just a hint of pink! Perfect for any time of day!

Kat Von D Shade & Light Contour Palette: I also had this palette as a favourite in June but it is worth a repeat! I use this palette every day whether I am looking to contour or just for some structure! Out of all the kits I have used this is by far the most creamiest, pigmented palette and is perfect for contour newbies or seasoned professionals!

Eliasz & Ella Tiger Eye Necklace: This stunning tiger eye necklace is a perfect addition to any fall wardrobe. The stone itself captures lighting and different angles, shining more brown is some light and more yellow in other.. like I said stunning! This necklace will go fabulously with any fall outfit!

Toms Desert Burlap Wedge: With the cold weather approaching I have been reaching for booties and these burlap wedges are gorgeous, comfortable and help out a good cause, what more can you ask for?!!

Eliasz & Ella Wooden Jasper Stone Bracelet: This beauty is my current go to, with a mixture of browns, yellows, greys and blacks it is the perfect combination for any fall outfit and also for any casual or dressy style!

Don’t forget to check by on Friday for my fashion feature! Have a great hump day!
