What to wear on the cobble stone streets of Edinburgh


H&M Jacket, Brixton Hat, BDG Jeans, Vintage Boots, …Bag

Edinburgh was quite small if you’re staying right in the centre like we did. Everything you need is walking distance and all the sites you want to see are also in close vicinity of each other. On that note, the streets are cobble stone so high skinny heels shouldn’t be the first shoes you pack. If you’re living in this city your shoes would probably get ruined pretty quickly but for us being there for 4 days I wore whatever I felt like. On this day I wore a small heeled boot and we walked around all day and I was definitely fine. I also live in a city so I’m used to wearing boots all day but after all the walking I was for sure tired! Obviously fashion is important to me but comfort always wins so a small heeled boot of which I don’t even refer to as a heel anymore are a fine option to bring if you’re a shortie like me. I think when you’re going to Scotland, one check the weather first and then two don’t pack a single shoe you wouldn’t want to walk ALL DAY in. Unless you’re a fancy traveller and drive everywhere but this really isn’t a driving city, it’s super small. This is truly one of the most beautiful cities I’ve been in so you’ll WANT to walk to see all the nooks and crannies ( and closes).

Sweater weather is here in Toronto


Joe Fresh Sweater, H&M Skirt, Yoka Flats, Vintage Coach Bag

The weather in Toronto has been odd this fall. From 5 degrees and rainy to all of a sudden warm and sunny and no jackets, but if one thing is certain, it’s that it’s sweater weather. Fall weather in Toronto is soooo unpredictable. You always have to wear a sweater or it’s certain that you’re carrying one in your bag for when the weather suddenly changes. It was getting pretty crazy hot near the end of the summer so I do love the change in the weather in the Fall, sadly I know it means it’s followed by Winter that seems to last forever. I’ll be soaking up the last few weeks of fall and the changing trees and fun layering. Stay tuned for more outfits!

There’s no place like home

Joe Fresh denim shirt and jeans, Nine West shoe, Zara jacket

There’s no better outfit than the Canadian tuxedo for Fall. It’s chic and super warm since you’re rocking a thick denim. On top I threw on my trusty leather jacket for some edge, more texture and honestly more warmth. For this outfit I wanted the shoes to speak for themselves. They’re giving me serious life with the Dorothy vibes. The Wizard of Oz was my number one movie growing up as a kid. My mother tells me she put it on at least once a day. My boyfriend recently said I don’t know how people can watch the same movie over and over, and I’m one of those people; I blame my mom haha. I saw these shoes at Winners and passed on them until two weeks later I couldn’t stop thinking about them and finally bought them and I ain’t mad!

LBD

Joe Fresh Dress, Yoki Loafers, Rayban Sunglasses 

Love me an LBD. This one I don’t know why but I hardly have worn it since I bought it three years ago. I’ve mentioned before I have trouble wearing dresses. I always feel over done and I really don’t know why. I wore dresses as a child a lot. This dress is really cute and I can’t believe Joe Fresh produced it. It’s hard to get all the details of a black dress on camera, it is silk, with two slits on the side up to the knee area. It cinches at the waist which is flattering and gives you some shape or you’d look like a sack. The neck detail is also really cool, I wish I had gotten a closer photo for you. This dress is super effortless chic and perfectly light and breezy on a hot summer’s day like this day in particular. I just threw on some loafers, black sunnies and a black backpack (not pictured as it was stuffed with Value Village finds).
