I don’t know about everyone else, but i’m really excited to see The Last Jedi on Thursday. The trailer makes it look so good, and I loved The Force Awakens! There’s also just something about seeing a Star Wars movie on opening night. There is so much energy in the theatre, people applaud, it’s really fun! Naturally i’m pretty excited about this Junk Food tee. I’m a fan of graphic tees, and all things Star Wars so it was an easy purchase! I kept the rest of the outfit pretty simple with my favourite faux leather jacket, and a pair of black skinny jeans.
I have a bit of an obsession with ankle boots. It’s been ongoing for a few years now, and I don’t see that changing anytime soon. I love to wear them with jeans, dresses, and pretty much everything else. That being said, I basically want to wear them all of the time! Aside from this blog, I have a full time job as a retail manager. This means that I’m usually standing for eight hours a day, five days a week. This can be really hard on my feet, and lately i’ve had to carefully choose what footwear I wear to work. Because of this, i’m always on the lookout for ankle boots that are cute, but also comfortable enough to wear all day. These boots by Vionic Shoes are just that! They are beautifully made, and extremely comfortable. They also come with a flexible, removable, microfibre covered EVA orthotic insert. All of this combined, makes them my absolute favourite pair of ankle boots to date!
I’m currently in full fledged bundle up mode! It’s been a little chilly around these parts lately, and this weather has got me stocking up on sweaters and toques. While the cold weather is inevitable, it always takes a few weeks to get used to it. This look features a few of my winter wardrobe staples, including these Sorel boots. They’ve been keeping my feet warm and dry for a few years now, so they were definitely a great investment! Speaking of great purchases, I also haven’t needed or wanted to replace this wool coat for a while now! I just add a few more to the collection here and there, for a bit of variety! There are a few other items that I am constantly looking to add to my wardrobe, and those are scarves and hats. I don’t think I can ever have enough of those!
The thing about winter in Calgary is that the weather is very unpredictable. It can be cold and snowy one day, and warm and sunny the next. I can’t really complain, it’s nice to have a break from the cold every now and then. Needless to say, I love that even in November I can wear a jacket this light, and still be perfectly comfortable! For this look, i’ve taken a few of my favourite new and older items, and put them all together. These Levi’s jeans are the newest addition to my wardrobe. I’ve mentioned before that i’m obsessed with Levi’s, and I don’t see that changing any time soon! These are the 311 shaping skinny’s, and they are a really great fit! I also added my favourite faux suede jacket from Forever 21, and this new striped top from Below the Belt. To accessories this look, I chose one of my favourite beanies, and this necklace by Jewelry by Amanda.

This Free People dress is the latest addition to my wardrobe, and also one of my current favourites! It’s got everything that I look for in a dress, long sleeves and a great pattern. I love how a dress in general can make choosing an outfit really simple. As long as you think about what accessories you’re going to pair it with before purchasing, you should be good to go! I added a pair of OTK boots to this outfit. I haven’t worn them as much as I would like to lately, so i’ve been actively trying to find outfits that they work with. I think these boots and this dress make the perfect combo. I also added a long necklace, and a hat to finished off the look.
Sometimes the most simple outfits can be the best. A pair of jeans and a henley shirt is one of my go to looks. Honestly, i’ve always been a fan of casual clothes. I do love to dress up every now and then, but I feel just as good in a pair of jeans, as I do in a fancy dress. I think the key is finding items that you love and feel good in, and at the same time get rid of anything that you don’t. That way choosing outfits will be a lot easier. These boots are a recent addition to my wardrobe, and are quickly becoming a favourite of mine. It also helps that they are ridiculously comfortable!

October is easily my favourite month of the year. Although the weather in Alberta can be all over the place, I still love it! I love the cooler temperatures, because I love wearing sweaters and scarves. My only issue is that I wish it lasted longer. For this reason, I find that i’m often reminding myself to really enjoy the season. I think it’s really important to slow down and enjoy the little things. I’ve been really busy lately with work and blogging. I definitely need to remind myself to take a break once and a while and enjoy life!
This is a casual every day look that will carry well into the winter season. I’m a big fan of oversized sweaters and cardigans, and this sweater in particular is a current favourite of mine! I find that there is a bit of a fine line between perfectly oversized and sloppy, and I think this sweater fits into the first category!
