The shoe that’s taking charge this Fall 2018: Combat boots are back to help you combat the cold weather in style

6) Bring back the 90’s from Jeffrey Campbell

The combat boot is definitely back this year. I’m really into a heeled version, obviously because I’m not very tall. I’m really into a chunky boot for this Fall season. They’ll also come in handy when it’s a bit rainy and you have to dredge through gross leaves and what not. I also just think they look effortlessly cool. Marc Fisher is making the best combat boots of the season right now. Number 5 above is exactly the boot I want. Good with mini dresses or cool hemmed jeans. I can’t wait to get my hands on a good pair.

How do you feel about combat boots?

Summer’s end

I’m having a hard time grasping the fact that summer is ending. Thankfully I have a trip to Mexico lined up to satisfy my need for heat and sun. But that will come and go quickly and it’ll be another year until every day is wonderful. That said I’ve been soaking up every minute by wearing sandals and shorts until I can’t. This is my go-to uniform when I need to get dressed quick and it’s warm out. A good vintage tee, light denim cut-offs and fun accessories. Sorry the photos are blurry, took them on my iPhone quickly the other day.

What’s your go-to summer look?

Fall 2018 Coat Trends: The coats we all need to stay stylish and warm this season

Slide11) H&M textured camel duster
2) Metallic puffer via Aritzia
3) Topshop boucle jersey coat in dusty pink via The Bay
4) Zara quilted velvet jacket
5) Avec Les Filles Corduroy/faux shearling duo textured jacket via Nordstrom
6) Salmon topper from Oak and Fort 

This fall there are a few coat trends I have my eye on, keeping in mind actually staying warm while looking good since I live in Canada. Such trends include the oversized puffer, the statement coat (print or shape), a bubblegum pink topper, metallics, and of course the beloved teddy trend from last year still sticking around. I’m currently searching for a coat that will transition me from warmer fall days into the colder fall days specifically because I’m heading to the UK in a couple weeks and it’s much colder there. Since I’ll be schlepping myself around the city being a tourist I need something that isn’t too heavy for the days that aren’t as cold and something I can pop a sweater under if it does drop a few degrees lower than expected. I have a few coats already from last year that are still “on trend”: the long denim with faux shearling lining, the faux shearling leather jacket, a small puffer, and a leopard coat but I’m just in need of a new basic that has a weeeee bit more warmth and sophistication. I’m leaning towards something of a soft plaid in a neutral colour scheme like the coat from Mango, or a wrap coat in a good camel colour (they’re always too long on my small frame). I guess you’ll see in photos to come which coat I fall through with. Get it, Fall through. Tried to make a pun happen. It didn’t. Let’s move on.

What jackets trends are you leaning towards purchasing this season?

Mellow Yellow: the colour of summer 2018

I knew yellow was a huge prediction for the summer of 2018 but I personally wasn’t sure how I would take to it; apparently very well. I am currently obsessed with yellow in all it’s forms; warm, cool, mustard, sunshine, citrus and so on. At this very moment my nails are yellow and my go-to everyday sunglasses are yellow. Yellow is not for everyone and there are definitely shades of yellow that I can NOT wear, but holding up a yellow garment next to your face in the mirror will show you very quickly what yellow is your friend. For me it can’t be too cool or neon. I have to go with something more warm that works with my pinkish undertone.

I’ve found that yellow is one of those calm colours that can hold up to more vibrant colours like in the photo below with the red bag. I like pairing yellow with an intense pop of colour, it’s one way you can wear a lot of colour at once and not come off too “clowny”. I recently have been hitting up forever 21 for trends like yellow that I’m unsure will last very long. I’m a fashion girl on a budget so it’s nice to have stores like that to hit up for quick basics as well as try out the newest trends and see if they work for you.
