When it comes to layering in the Fall I like to mix texture and of course add fun accessories for some personality.  To add colour to my usual neutral colour palette, I love rich wine tones.  They are great shades that still manage to feel somewhat neutral.  My formula…I start with my fave pair of dark wash slim fit jeans a black tee or tank.  Then I add….


1. a large wine coloured clutch. I love that this one also comes with a cross body strap so I can be hands free.  (Co-Lab Clutch)
2. a black fedora. This is one of my go-to hat options for fall. It’s an easy way to kick your style up a notch plus hide a less than amazing hair day.  (Scoop Pop-Up Shop)
3. comfortable shoes. Yes, these are heels, but Ecco has some amazingly comfy options for the gal who likes to elongate her gams.  (c/o Ecco shoes)
4. a piece of statement jewelry. Statement pieces don’t have to be reserved for the neck only. Try a bold cuff, especially if you’re a scarf junkie like me.  (Scoop Pop-Up Shop)
5. a very cozy sweater. Knits are one of the best things about fall. They are cozy, warm, and functional. A chunky cardi like this is a great casual alternative to a blazer. Weekend latte in the park anyone?  (Free People cardi)

 

With the arrival of September and showers I’ve been forced to start planning my wardrobe strategy for the remainder of my pregnancy.  I’m in the home stretch (less than 2 and a half months to go), but constant hot flashes and my switch over to maternity underwear (overshare?), are making me want to stick to barely there summer fabrics.  To make the transition, I’m opting for light weight pieces, bare legs, and richer/darker hues.  I have had this little black skirt by Metalicus for years.  It’s always been a go-to item for me, but I think I will be grabbing it even more often this Fall.  (So grateful I also own it in grey.)   All hail the stretchy tube skirt.  How are you making the transition from Summer to Fall?

It’s taken me a while to find the perfect pair of printed pants…especially now with my new physique.  I have found most to be cut very slim through the hip giving me a not so flattering silhouette.  This pair I found at Asos.com in there maternity section.  They are so unbelievably comfortable.  So comfy in fact, I wore them on my roadtrip last Thursday.

Needless to say, our roadtrip was a bust.  With the devastating floods in Calgary and surrounding area, there was no way to make it to our final destination.  My heart goes out to all of those affected by the Alberta floods.  xo

With a new body to now style (and changing all the time), I’ve really had to edit my closet and shop wisely.  I’ve reorganized my closet so all my maternity, or maternity equivalents, are all together in one section which has made getting dressed a whole lot easier.  I still venture over to the other parts of my closet for some tops, jackets, and cardis….while I can.

I am very excited to have an upcoming Mavi feature on my blog.  I adore Mavi jeans and have a couple new pairs that I have been living in recently.  Stay tuned for more info.

Since I have some of my Hawaii tan still on my legs, I figured I’d brave the cold and go with bare legs for my breakfast meeting with my Style Common crew.  I just haven’t wanted to give in to winter attire again.  I had been avoiding boots, but finally broke down and wore a pair to the Canucks game on Friday night.  Until Spring comes I’m sticking with lots of layers and plan on wearing prints and bright hues to keep things a bit more fun.  A few new colourful purchases have been made including this green colour block skirt from Joe Fresh.  With warm weather still a bit far away, I figure some Spring shopping helps warm your soul.
