It was the first day of fall fall yesterday ! That means this weekend i'll be switching over my closet from spring/summer to fall/winter and i can finally get rid of the pile of shopping bags in the corner of my room filled with new fall stuff i've purchased lately. There are so many cute things in stores right now i just want to buy everything!! i think there are so many great trends this season and a little bit for everyone, i feel like the past few seasons stores have stuck to one specific look and it was everywhere and everyone was wearing the same things. But the game has changed and there are things for everyone, its really exciting haha. For this look i wore this dark denim skirt... i know i keep featuring this skirt but its just so perfect and goes with everything ! (not going to lie... you'll be seeing a lot of it because i am in love) i paired it with this blue prairie blouse which i think so so pretty for fall i love the femininity and vintage feel it has (which you know i am all about) but for a little pop of glitter i added these sparkly shoes and this glittery Chanel brooch.

It's crazy to think that today is the official last day of summer ! don't get me wrong i am very excited but time is moving to fast... almost too fast. Stores already started setting up their christmas sections and its like... relax its technically still summer. What happened to the harvest/thanksgiving set ups?? and they totally looked over halloween, why are stores always in a rush to shove christmas down our throats... i love christmas probably more than the average person but i don't like looking at it for over 3 months because by the time christmas does come then everyone is bored of looking at it and the magic is gone, it just feels like part of the every day. i know that sounds super negative and not very cheer-y of me but i want to enjoy each holiday and not rush. well that aside we are still having some hot days here in Toronto, today feels like 31 so i would be ok sitting by the pool. For this outfit i am wearing one of my favourite black high waited shorts, i think the A-line shape is so flattering and i love how fitted they are at the waist. Believe it or not i always have problems finding bottoms that fit my waist, most tent to run too big. For my shirt i am wearing this bell sleeved white blouse with black lacing its so so femenine and i feel like it matches just about anything. For my favourite part of the outfit... the SHOES i love these little tweed shoes from nine west they are so comfortable and they add a touch of elegance to any outfit.

One of my favourite things to do is to pick a print and invert it, in this particular outfit i grabbed this black and white polka dot skirt and paired it with a cream blouse with black polka dots. I don't know what it is but i think it creates a really interesting outfit. And as if there wasn't enough polka dots i grabbed this Kate Spade polka dot purse, its the same colour of polka dots but since they are significantly larger it is a bit more distinctive. Of course i had to break up the madness so as a pop of colour i tied this red skinny scarf around my waist. I remember doing stuff like that when i was really young (like grade 6-7-8) we used them as belts... lol good times. i hope you all have a wonderful Monday ! :)

Sweater vests have always been a favourite of mine, especially for the fall they are just so cozy without the extra warmth on the arms. Another thing i've been really into is denim skirts, this particular one will probable be featured 100 times this fall because i can think of countless outfits to wear it with! i love the A-line i think its so flattering for my body shape. it is finally getting a bit colder here in Toronto so i might have to switch over my closet to fall/winter at some point this month ! can't wait!

If you've been watching my monthly hauls on Youtube (if you haven't! link to my channel here!) you'd notice that i've been buying a bunch of new things in different styles, in hopes to switch up my style a little bit. With that in mind i still love all the preppy/femenine looks and will always have a place in my heart. I will obviously continue to throw in a bunch of preppy looks but i am grabbing new pieces that i wouldn't normally wear and making them more me. i am really excited for fall and the colder wether so i can share with you guys what i am talking about! For this look i went for this pleated mustard coloured skirt and a white blouse. It is starting to get a bit chilly here in the mornings and evenings so i grabbed a cardigan that has this beautiful lace detail in the front. To bring that mustard colour back into the outfit i put on this mustard coloured necktie :)

On Friday night i attended TIFF (Toronto international film festival) and went to the premier for Colossal a movie starring Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis. Colossal is a sci-fi monster film, and i can honestly say i have never seen anything like it before. It surrounds Gloria (Anne Hathaway) a party girl who moves back to her home town and reconnects with an old friend (Jason Sudeikis) after a night of drinking she sees on the news that a monster is attacking Seoul and destroying the city. The next day after coming out of a haze, she discovers that this monster is somehow connected to her. I won't give much away but there was a mix of action, comedy and a lot of emotion coming through both of the main actors. As for my outfit i went with this black lace dress from Zara [exact link here!] i think my favourite part is the ruffling on the sleeves and the neck. i've been really into shirts (and i guess dresses) that have those ruffles on the neck i think its an extra detail on an outfit as well as it reminds me of the victorian era (my favourite of course.) I also think the back is beautiful i love the cutouts, its like having an open back but not really. i also wanted to feature the details on the front part of the dress so i went with a low wavy ponytail with a gold crown headband. if you want to create a similar hair look look for those headbands that have the little teeth on the ends (not the elastic ones) and of course these big statement earrings and a gold clutch. Since the outfit was only black and gold i needed another colour so i painted my nails read (this is rare... i never paint my nails) and put on my favourite red lipstick! overall it was a great night and i can't get enough of this dress!
