Now that it’s officially fall, it only seems natural to start wearing darker shades of lipstick and beanies. That’s what I’m doing anyways. Unlike my beloved ankle boots, thick wool beanies shouldn’t be worn all year round. Unless you are ok with sweating profusely, which I am not, it’s not a very good idea.
This look is a combination of a few of my new favourite items. I’m currently obsessed with this ringer tee by Volcom, it’s really soft and has a vintage vibe to it that I love. These Volcom Jeans are also a major staple in my wardrobe right now. You really can’t go wrong with a pair of great fitting dark denim skinny jeans!

Two of my favourite styles of clothing that I basically wear all year round, are cardigans and ankle boots. This time of year the weather is especially suited for both of these items and I love it! Layering in the fall is always a necessity because the weather can quickly change at any moment and you need to be prepared if you want to stay comfortable. I love adding scarves and wool hats to outfits so this suits me quit well!
This cardigan in particular is by Volcom and it’s one of my new favourites. I love that it’s slim and light, rather than thick and chunky. Although I do love that style as well, It gives me a little more variety when it comes to my cardigan selection and that is always a good thing! These ankle booties by Clarks are also a favourite of mine. They are a little lower than some of my other boots so they are a bit more comfortable for days when i’m standing a lot.

Right now I’m taking advantage of all the days that I have left to wear a dress without tights underneath. Those days are numbered so I’m doing my best. This adorable dress by Volcom is one of my current favourites. I love that it has long sleeves and the fit is perfect for my body type! These photos were taken out at Vermillion lakes in Banff national park. The colours this time of year are so beautiful, I wish that autumn lasted longer than it does.

It’s no secret that I love lip gloss, I can’t leave the house without it. This time of year as the weather cools down, it’s even more of an essential part of my beauty regimen.
TruSelf Organics has recently come out with an Organic Raw Honey lip gloss and i’m pretty obsessed with it! It contains a few awesome ingredients including honey and grapefruit oil, which gives it a lovely citrus taste! You can also feel good about the fact that it’s made from all natural and organic ingredients. I like to choose products that are natural whenever I can, especially when it comes to lip care! This gloss can be worn on its own or over matte lipstick to give your lips a nice shine. It’s also very moisturizing, so get the benefits of a balm as well as the shine of a gloss! Check out truselforganics.com to try it out for yourself!
Yesterday I took a trip out to Banff with my friend Jaclynn. It’s always nice to take a break from the city and hang out in the mountains, even if it’s just for a few hours. I love that right now it’s cool enough to wear a sweater and a scarf but not so cold that you need a jacket. I’ve recently taken all of my scarves and wool hats out of storage and it’s a good thing because the weather has been all over the place lately. This scarf in particular, is one that I picked up last winter at Aritzia and it’s still a favourite of mine. This look consists of a few of my favourite wardrobe staples, including these distressed blue jeans and brown ankle boots.

There are two items that I basically live in come September and they are, Jeans and Cardigans. I’ve got a large collection of both items and i’ve recently made a few additions. This cardigan by Volcom is one of my new favourites! It’s long, cozy and perfect for the cool temperatures we are experiencing here in Calgary lately. These Volcom jeans are also a new favourite of mine. They fit like a glove and not to mention, dark skinny jeans have been a staple in my wardrobe for as long as I can remember. It’s nice to have a new pair to add into the rotation!

I’m a big fan of workwear companies releasing collections that are more fashionable and feminine than what they normally design. These boots in particular are a great example of that. They are made by Red Wing Shoes a company known for their work boots. They are part of the Heritage collection and i’m pretty obsessed with them. I always look for boots that have both comfort and style and this pair definitely fits the criteria. If you are interested in trying a pair for yourself the Heritage collection is available at littleburgundy.com.
