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 & happy Friday!
It’s been a long, long while since my last Fashion Friday post, & the weather has certainly shifted since my last OOTD post. We’ve gone from light Fall breezes to full on snowstorms, which means my fashion choices have transformed as well.
& how would I describe my fashion style for the current Autumn weather? It’s all about layers!
This look is definitely one I’ve been repeating, featuring different the different sweaters in my closet. I’m all about the layers, & keeping warm, so I’ve been piling knits on top of knits from head to toe. & for some odd reason, late Fall/Winter is the only time where I actually reach for leggings. But don’t worry—I’ve got an extra pair of tights on underneath, because I am always way too cold.
& my current favourite accessory right now, aside from these Nine West Knee High Booties I’ve own since University? The beanie! Not going to lie, Mary Kate & Ashley are once again inspiring my fashion choices with their flawless New Yorker style. But, to be honest, when aren’t they?
So what do you think about this look? I’d say oversized sweaters, leggings, & excessive layers are definitely my Fall uniform. What about you? What are your current style staples? Let me know in the comments below!
The other night I was perusing my Pinterest, browsing through my folder titled “Style Inspiration”, starting to mentally plan some Fall looks (& make a list of clothing I want to add to my closet), & realized that a lot of my personal style can be traced back to the same “muses”. To be honest, while my style has evolved, it hasn’t changed a whole lot over the years.
I thought it might be fun to go through, & share with you guys who I considered my person style inspirations & muses.
