Crisp Fall Days

I pretty much live in dresses, boots and coats this time of year. Even though I bought this dress in the Summer I totally still love it and think it looks Fall-perfect for a overcast Vancouver day.

The Perfect Fall Cardi

Shoes Louboutin 
Bag Louis Vuitton 

It’s officially Fall, and that means having a reason to do my absolute thing - go shopping for the seasons cozy staples and must-haves. One of the reasons that I love Fall so much is because I love layering and love sweaters - especially cardigans. For me, a long cardigan is a staple piece and definitely something that I wear almost daily. I love a great cozy cardigan perfect for those not too chilly days and ideal for layering when under a coat. I’m super obsessed with this amazing long patterned cardigan from Smart Set. When I shop I definitely look for pieces that are extremely versatile, ones that I can wear for date night with my guy or after work cocktails with my girlfriends, to weekend brunches - and this piece is definitely it! 

Having been a regular shopper at Smart Set for years I have to say that I am so thrilled with all the amazing finds that they have this season. I’m even more thrilled about the price points. Other than this amazing patterned cardi, I totally fell head over heels for this red plaid matching set. I’m such a sucker for plaid - especially red plaid. When I saw this red plaid top and midi skirt set from Smart Set I knew I had to have it! I love the way the matching set pairs with this super cute patterned cardi, creating a look that is put together and perfect for any day! 

The absolute best part about this fabulous outfit is that it can be worn as separates as well! Pair the skirt with a casual sweater and a pair of boots; the top with a pair of dark skinny jeans and a blazer, or my fav - wear this amazing long draped cardigan with a bodycon dress and over the knee boots for the perfect Fall look! Don’t you love pieces that do double and triple duty?

Hey Everyone, it may officially be Fall, but that hasn’t stopped me from being Fearlessly Fashionable today! After receiving some major runway inspiration from Fashion Week, I’ve decided to incorporate all my favorite 2015 Spring/Summer trends into my OOTD. Crop tops were a total wardrobe staple last season and they will be here to stay for a while—which is amaze, because I totally adore a crop top! Another trend that I am loving from the 2015 Spring/Summer Fashion Week runways are the abundance of classic black-and-white, which was seen everywhere in textures and eye-catching patterns. I’m also obsessed with more tailored pieces like the jacket I’m wearing, which I love because the gold buttons add a touch of glam to any outfit day or night. It’s all in the details!

By layering this athletic-inspired crop top under a glam jacket, I’ve instantly taken this look from Spring/Summer to Fall/Winter.  As for my accessories, I added loads of glam and personality with stacks and stacks of cuffs and bangles and layers of simple, delicate necklaces. I also feel my most Fearless in sky-high heels; these booties with zipper details supply just the right amount of style and comfort. I particularly love their subtle gold accents. Last, but certainly not least, I’ve added a simple, chic and always stylish classic quilted lambskin bag to tie the look together. I’m wearing my bag over one shoulder, but it looks equally fearless and fashionable worn crossbody—which was also a major trend during Fashion Week. Don’t you love pieces that do double duty? Also in-keeping with trends from Fashion Week, I styled my recently chopped hair with tousled, undone waves. I kept my makeup fresh, clean and minimalist: the less is more look—another major trend I’m obsessed with.  Wishing you a glam October!
