After lots of contemplating I’ve finally put together my Holiday outfit for Christmas Eve dinner 🙂 Can you believe I bought this skirt two months ago and saved it to wear for the holidays! I dont know how I restrainted from wearing it earlier! It’s a perfect fit if you ask me. I’ve now grown a fascination with these ‘cupcake’ skirts! Doubt that’s the proper term for the skirt but to me it looks like a cupcake haha.

Hey hey hey!
I had these photos taken last Sunday when the beau was in town. It was late morning, and we were heading down to Yorkdale to do a bit of shopping. I’ve noticed in the most recent of days that the leaves were starting to turn from beautiful yellows and oranges to dark browns and to say the least – miserable black specks of what once was. Winter is really creeping up on us! I’ve been loving dark denim, simple tops or sweaters with chunky, long cardigans and boots. (I ordered these boots on JustFab.com and I am obsessed!) I’m also absolutely smitten with this MK cross body purse that Julie gifted me for my birthday (kind of love her..!) What better to top this all off than a red matte lip?
Ok so I don’t know the proper term for this hat regardless this hat is purrrfect for the fall! Not only is it so cute with loose curls and a dark lip but it protects your ears from the chilly cold. It’s a great add on accessory to your outfit where you won’t go unnoticed 😉
MAC lipstick in ruby woo:
I discovered this lip shade from watching a makeup tutorial by ‘makeup by camila’ on YouTube. Camila used this colour and it looked absolutely gorgeous! It’s a great colour for day and night and I’ve been thinking about incorporating more lip shades to my look so this shade would be a fabulous start!
Zara leather jacket:
Now that it’s fall season you must own a leather jacket! This item should probably be on the Need list because it is essential! As the weather changes, wool coats are not to be brought out just yet but a simple sweater isn’t enough. Leather jackets are just the right piece to add onto your everyday look!
Rag and Bone booties:
I’m in love with these booties! Its an amazing bootie to wear everyday to work and school. Not too high of a heel so you can wear them for long hours and it just adds a little style to every look. Lalalovee!
H&M Tweed blazer:
For fall 2012 a tweed blazer is the right choice! Its a classic really. Tweed blazers will never be out of style, thats right I said it. Tweeds are great for the fall, gives you the extra warmth for the weather and would be great with a matching trouser. Am I wrong? Don’t think so.
Stella McCartney cobalt wool coat:
I am loving absolutely everything Stella McCartney, she’s one of my favourite designers! This year’s FALL 12 collection is stunning. Her prints, sharp tailoring and vibrant colours are great for this season!
This cobalt coloured wool coat is a fall trend my lovelies! Cobalt is THE colour of the season so why not show it off in a coat? Stand out from all the black!
Do you agree?
This month, Julie and I just can’t help thinking about the Fall season. Especially me! Can I really help it with all the fab fall collections coming out in stores already? (fashion really waits for no one, huh?)
I want want want this two-color gingham dress shirt from J.Crew. I love Gingham print, and I have my mindset on collared shirts and funky, chunky pattern sweaters come fall as one of my staple looks. This plum purple combo would look beautiful with a mustard crew neck sweater or alone tucked into denim.
The next want I have is a bit of a personal debate. Since I’m only right around 5 feet tall (shorties unite!) Most maxi skirts are quite long and this one in particular which I absolutely adore would absolutely have to be tailored to fit me. I would love to rock it this summer season and love the thought of throwing a cobalt blue sweater over this bad boy come fall.
This may come off as a bit random, but for those who don’t know. I made the decision pretty much 6 months ago to start taking Accutane for my acne. I am coming close to the end of my “sentence” of taking the pills which have dramatically improved my skin (post to come), however whilst taking Accutane, I haven’t been able to wear colored glosses or more importantly LIPSTICK! My lips are too dry to bear it, and I’ve just been wearing Aquaphor or blistex which has been quite hard since I want to wear lip products. This YSL in #30 in “Faubourg Peach” is at the top of my list.
These camo print trousers from Zara are a NEED for me. I love the skinny fit and the zipper detail. Again, this piece is perfect for fall with some boots as modeled here or even this August with some sandals and a vintage tee.
I made a “quick” stop into Sephora the other day to take a look at some lightweight foundations and got a whiff of this gem. “Stella” by Stella Mc Cartney is no new addition to the perfume game. In fact, it’s been around for quite a while. How could I have missed this? I am a perfume fanatic, and this baby is a winner. Notes of amber, rose, and peony flower make this perfume very feminine without being fruity. It’s sexy without being too deep or musky. NEED this one for sure.
Stella by Stella McCartney – 1.6oz $72 CAD
Hmm. Simplicity at it’s best. Who better to deliver than Elizabeth and James? This soft coral dress is absolutely beautiful. I love the length, the cut and the effortless,”no-need-for-anything-else-yet-if-I-wanted-to-add-a-statement-piece-I-could’esque” feel of this piece. Definitely lust, since alas, $400 is a bit too steep for me, so the search continues.
