Happy Halloween from Wednesday Addams !

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! for this halloween i decided to dress up as Wednesday Addams. i thought it would be a really fun costume to do because her and i are polar opposites!  i haven't dressed u for halloween in years so you can imagine my excitement! i tried to replicate Christina Riccis wednesday Addams which meant no black lipstick.... although to be honest i don't know where that trend started (when i first thought of this outfit my first throughout was black lipstick... but i am happy i stuck true to the movie)

NYX Cosmetics VIP pre-shopping event

i was able to attend the pre shopping event at the new NYX store at square one mall.  The official store opening is Thursday October 29th 2015! The store itself seems a bit small from the outside, but once you actually go inside you notice the amount of products that they carry and it no longer feels small, it's actually quite spacious. The walls on the sides are filled with products with their according labels which makes shopping a breeze! In the middle of the store they have vanities with big mirrors where you can test out the makeup. It was a little difficult getting to see all off the products on this particular day, which was expected due to the amount of people who were invited to the event. I picked up a few goodies which i cant wait to test out! i have a feeling i will be stopping by the NYX store every time i am in the area  :)

Blue and white stripes

The leaves have basically finished changing colour now, so the ground is getting covered by leaves which definitely makes for a cute picture :) i am obsessed with this blue and white sweater, its perfect for this time of year because its a very this knit. i decided to keep the outfit really simple and just add a cream skirt to match the stripes along with some blue tights. 
Now for the shoes.... do you know how hard it is to find a pair of blue shoes!! when i saw these it was love at first sight i love the small square heel which adds a touch of vintage to the outfit, along with the hight ponytail  (hello 50's)

Red and black

Fall is such an exciting time for fashion, not only are the clothes super cute but i also love the inconsistency in the weather. Some days are warm and some days are cold this really lets you play around with your clothing options. One of my favourite things to wear are copes i find that they just look good paired with anything. And you cant go wrong with a black white and red combination.

Pink marshmallow sweater

Just because its fall doesn't mean you cant wear pastels! This is probably the softest sweater i have ever worn! it has a very 90's vibe to it which i love !!!  i also feel like i look like a pink marshmallow.. and i am kinda digging) This polka dot skirt is so versatile and can basically wear it with any colour.... i am still waiting to meet someone with a dalmatian so that i can have a photoshoot while wearing this skirt.

Gold coloured buttons

The weather has started to cool down a bit more so this this thick knit turtleneck has been my saviour! as mentioned in previous posts i have never been a fan of turtlenecks but this one was too cute to pass up. i got this cropped sweater from Forever 21 a few weeks ago along with this Wool blend skirt. i love the leather pocket detailing on them i think it adds such nice interest to the outfit. 
i think its so fun to play up an outfit using tights, they come in so many different colours and prints tat you can really get creative with them. this particular pair is from h&m. 
Dark Camel coloured coats are such a staple for fall, i have had this one one for a couple of years now and i never get tired of wearing it. The gold buttons add such an elegant quality to any outfit. (From forever 21) 

Also you guys should check out Jackline  she is also a toronto blogger, we collaborated on some looks, check hers out!

Apple picking round two

One of the most common fall activity is to go apple picking...it's kind of embarrassing to say that prior to this year i had never gone apple picking before... yes i know.. Luckily this year i was able to go twice! i went with my friend yasmeen and we walked around the orchard, we even found a little trolly ! (which we probably had a little too much fun taking pictures with) after walking around  we sat down outside the little bakery and had a cup of apple cider (which was amazing!!) and cookies :) 
It was a little bit colder outside so i decided to pull out my cape, i have been obsessed with capes for a couple of years now and this year H&M came out with this burgundy cape (they also have it in black which they also sold last year) Brooches are also a huge must have in my wardrobe, particularly in the fall and winter. I tend to wear blouses that you tie the bow at the front which prevents you from being able to wear a necklace so i think brooches are a perfect accessory.
