It’s been a while since my last Fashion Friday post so I thought a Fall themed OOTD post was in order. I’ve been absolutely loving these cooler days, & I’ve enjoyed being able to pull out a few of my cosiest clothing items. Aka my cardigans.
I don’t know about you, but one of my favourite autumn accessories is a cardigan. Especially on those days that start out quite chilly, but end up quite balmy by the afternoon. Tis the season for layers — & I’m a girl all about layers. There is a reason why MK & Ashley inspire my Fall style. Layers are the best.
Forever 21 extra long green cardigan. Dollarama black tank top. Joe Fresh faded black skinny jeans. Thrifted patent leather loafers. Coast & Cove sunflower earrings. 🌻
I feel like this outfit is one of my unofficial September uniforms: denim bottoms, tank or t-shirt, & then a cosy cardigan thrown over top. Between this & a dress with a denim jacket, that’s all I really wear until the weather cools down a bit more. Also these black patent leather loafers which I basically wear with everything.
Also how cute are these sunflower earrings I just bought? I’m obsessed with them. They’re by local Halifax artist Coast & Cove & as soon as I saw them I knew I needed them. Her earrings are gorgeous, & I’ll definitely be picking up a few more very soon! Plus, they don’t hurt my very, very sensitive earrings which basically means they’re magic.
What is your Autumn style uniform? What style items are you adding to your wardrobe this season? I have an upcoming post featuring the items I’m calling my “Fall essentials”.
It’s been ages since my last Fashion Friday post, so I thought it would be fun to share some recent finds I got while thrifting. If you know me, you know I love a good deal. & I really love when the deal comes from my local thrift store. So I was super excited when I found two amazing deals during my last visit — & I just had to share!
Guess crossbody purse — approx. value $85 CAD
So recently I’ve been on the search for a new black bag to replace my current one that is on its last legs. I’m kind of picky when it comes to purses, so I’ve been struggling to find one that I loved. So I was really, really excited when I scored this beauty at my local thrift for $8. I couldn’t believe it, & I had to get it! The bag is super cute, with a chain that can be shortened to two straps, or worn long as a crossbody bag.
Airwalk Legacee Lace Up Sneakers (never worn) — approx. value $40 CAD
My second score of the trip were these Airwalk sneakers. I love love love this style of sneaker, & I’ve been on the hunt for a new pair after I finally destroyed my Ardene knock offs. So when I saw these hanging out in the shoe section, I got excited. They’re a men’s size 6, so about a woman’s size 8, so they’re the perfect size for me. Definitely a shoe I’m going to be wearing constantly through the rest of summer, & into Autumn. I love how they go with jeans, shorts, or dresses.
& just for fun, I decided to take a quick shot of my new goodies together, before heading to work. Love how versatile these items are! They’ll be so cute with jeans & a sweater come Autumn too!

Hello lovelies! Today I have another edition of Fashion Friday, featuring a bit of a throwback. I had so much fun with my previous try-on post, so I thought it would be really fun to do a similar post, but this time trying on my old prom dresses!
I actually went to prom three times — my own, with one of my best friends, & then to my high school boyfriends. & each time, I wore a completely different dress in a completely different style! I was never a huge fan of the traditional princess-y prom dress, so I’ve never worn one. It’s just not my style.
Hello lovely & happy Friday! It feels like absolutely forever since I posted anything Fashion Friday. Winter did not inspire me in the least. But now the days are warmer & I’ve been feeling inspired to dress up again.
So truth be told, I’m a bit of an emotional clothes hoarder. I hold on to clothing the way some people hold onto photo albums — I revisit them, remembering the people & moments attached to them. I love pulling out old clothes I haven’t worn in a while, just to take a quick walk down memory lane. So just for fun, I decided to pull a few dresses from lifetimes past, & do a quick then & now.
Hello lovelies & happy Thursday! Can’t believe this week is going by so quickly. But also, I have the next two days off work so I have big BIG plans. Cupboard organizing plans. It’s very exciting.
But first, how about some nail art? That’s what you’re all here for, right?
I finally decided to pull out my nail vinyls, because it’s been a while, haha. I was feeling coral/red with some stripe-y accent nails, so that’s exactly what I did. Actually I was inspired by this look after some Pinterest-ing, & thought it was be an excellent nail art combo.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle
Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Get Mod!
Essie After School Boy Blazer
SnailVinyls straight nail vinyls (multiple thickness)
Such a classic combo, & I really like it. I feel like I’ve been neglecting my vinyls so much so it was nice to pull them out again. Plus I could never even attempt to freehand lines this straight. I also really like how simple this colour combo is, but that the red gives you that bright pop of colour. It’s definitely a fun combination. I might not wear a head to toe coral suit with striped shirt, but I can definitely achieve a similar look in my nails!
What do you think about this look? Wojld you wear a combination like this? Let me know in the comments below. & speaking of nail vinyls — I just stocked up on some mermaid vinyls from Beyond the Nail, so stay tuned for some fun mermaid nails to come!
