Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice

Pumpkin Spice

Did someone say pumpkin spice? Yup, it is that time of the year. Even though it is officially fall season, here in Toronto we have had hot summer like weather for a week now (not that I mind the bonus Indian summer days!). But it has finally cooled down and actually feels like fall. For this fall ensemble, I have gone with a brown and burgundy color theme. The sweater with the beautiful back detail just screams fall. I paired it with gray jeans and burgundy booties. Then I layered the outfit with a plaid blanket scarf and a gold bird necklace from our shop. The brown bucket handbag is added for all your knick knacks. This pumpkin spice look won’t be complete without a cute coffee mug. Also, how adorable is that burgundy pumpkin? Happy Weekend!

How To Wear Burgundy

Fall In Burgundy
Add a punch of burgundy to your outfit this fall. You can add it through your accessories for a subtle look such as a scarf or shoes or bag. For a bolder look, make your outfit stand out with a burgundy jacket, pants or shirt. Here we have added burgundy to the outfit with the jacket and the blanket scarf. The main outfit is kept casual with a gray sweater and skinny jeans. Fall will not be complete without suede! Suede booties and a tassel handbag in a neutral tan color complement the outfit. Gold goes perfectly with this warm fall color. You can accent your outfit with simple gold necklace like our birds necklace to add the finishing touches. Hope everyone is having a great Friday. Have a happy weekend!

How To Layer for Work In Summer

Office wear during summer can be tricky sometimes. It is nice and hot outside and you decide to wear that great summer outfit to work. Then you enter the chilly office….brrr. I hate feeling cold inside when the sun is shining so bright!

Layering in summer. Yes that can be the perfect solution for both men and women to stay comfortable and fashionable at work during summer.

With casual office wear becoming more and more acceptable at work, it has become easier to be both comfy and chic.

I have come up with some layering ideas to easily switch between the summer sun and the chilly office.

Layering Options For Women

Summer Office Wear

I have paired a peach blouse that can be tucked into the gray culottes with four layering options for summer office wear. These options will transition you easily from the outdoor heat to the arctic tundra inside!

Option 1: Gray Jacket

Layer your blouse with a jacket for a more formal look that is still comfortably chic. The gray jacket is not too formal but gives you that professional look while keeping you warm and comfy.

Option 2: Black Kimono

A kimono is perfect for a loose unstructured look. This black kimono will add depth and warmth to our outfit while keeping it work appropriate.

Option 3: Black Vest

If you are cold but not too cold a vest could be the perfect layering option. This belted black vest takes chic to the next level while giving you a great layering option.

Option 4: Summer Scarf

This navy floral infinity scarf can be paired with any of the above options or on its own for a chic, layered look. A scarf will give you that extra layer of cozy for those cold air conditioned offices when you are just slightly feeling the chill.

Add a few more accessories including the flats (Tory Burch), necklace (Fashionelle Studio) & and tote (Topshop) and you are all set for work!

Layering Options For Men

Summer Office Wear

Here I have paired a simple navy blue t-shirt from Tommy John and black pants from Topman with some great layering options to make it work appropriate for those chilly offices during summer! If your office prefers a more formal look, just replace the t-shirt with a collared shirt.

Option 1 : Vest

If you are feeling a little cold but don’t want to wear full sleeves, a vest can be a great choice. It will give you the right amount of coziness and at the same time creating a chic, fashionable look.

Option 2: Sports Jacket/Blazer

Go for a more formal look by layering with a sports jacket or blazer. Easy peasy to take the blazer off in the summer heat.

Option 3: Collar Knit Jacket

More informal that a sports jacket, this knit jacket has a casual, unstructured look. The collar keeps it a little more conservative. Again easy enough to take if off when stepping outside.

Option 4: Cardigan

Last but not the least, a button down cardigan can help make your outfit look professional and at the same time help you deal with the office AC.

Fashion Friday Humour

I have been missing in action from my blog for a while now. Things were a little hectic with my etsy shop (which is a good thing!) plus all the family get togethers during the holiday season kept me pretty busy. So the blog has been off my radar. What’s better than to start the year with some fashion humour! Happy Friday everyone.

Lattes, boots, pumpkins and scarves! Fall season is upon us and so the layering can begin! A scarf is a perfect accessory to layer your outfit in fall.

A burgundy crop top and black skinny jeans is what this particular look is built upon. It is layered with a burgundy plaid infinity scarf. A bomber jacket is added to warm you up for those cool fall days. A fringe cross body bag, suede boots and a celtic knot necklace complete the layered look.

How To Wear Coral In Fall

Coral, a popular summer color can be worn in fall easily by combining it with a neutral color. The summer coral blouse is layered with a grey jacket. Add a pair of boots to make it fall appropriate. These gray suede ankle boots work perfectly with the outfit. The same gray color is picked up in the textured cross body handbag. A printed coral infinity scarf that complements the blouse makes it perfect for fall weather. Add some cute jewelry like this bird necklace to complete the look. Add jeans for an informal look or replace them with a pair of pants for a great work outfit.
Happy Friday and happy Halloween everyone!

How To Wear Scarves In Fall

Bonfires, lattes, boots, crisp air, sweaters, falling leaves, pumpkin spiced everything and of course scarves! All things synonymous with fall. From infinity scarves to blanket scarves and everything in between, we have included a variety of ways you can wear scarves this fall.

Combine two pastel colors together.

Pastels are usually spring and summer colors but why not try them in fall? Here a rose colored knit infinity scarf is paired with an aqua sweater. The pastels work beautifully together specially when paired with brown sunglasses and crossbody fringe bag. The knee high boots tie the whole look together by picking up the black from the jeans and brown from the bag and sunglasses.


Try a bandana scarf this season.

Here a floral printed bandana scarf is worn with a striped black and white shirt and a brown woolen jacket to pull off this cozy, stylish look. The outfit pulls off pattern on pattern look effortlessly.

Pair two complementary colors together.

Fall doesn’t have to be dull. Here a fuchsia sweater is paired with a turquoise scarf. The shoes pull the color from the sweater and scarf to tie the whole look together.


Match your scarf with your shirt.

Warm yet rich, burgundy is making a splash this year. In this outfit, the blouse is accessorized with an elephant print scarf. The scarf picks up the burgundy color from the blouse. A fringe purse, skinny jeans and cowboy boots complete the autumn look.


Go for a monotone themed outfit.

This tone on tone look is perfect. A tan blanket scarf with a neutral colored sweater and pants just scream fall. Fringed boots and messenger bag in brown seamlessly add to the neutral fall look.


Pair two bright colors together.

Don’t be afraid to marry two bright colors. Here a bright yellow jacket is paired with a cobalt blue purse and scarf. The blanket scarf also has hints of mustard that helps integrate the yellow jacket with the outfit. Matching jeans and nude pumps help put together this look.


Make the accessories the focal point on your outfit.

Accessories make this outfit. A colorful printed scarf is the highlight of this ensemble.The handbag in yellow and sandals in blue pick up the colors from the scarf for a great fall look.


Match your scarf to your shoes.

A brown infinity scarf and matching boots complement the red dress perfectly. Patterned tights for those cool days make the look fall appropriate.


Match your scarf with your jacket.

Plaid is in this season. So it goes without saying that you should consider adding it to your wardrobe if you love this trend. This sweater dress is layered with a plaid blanket scarf. If you are not too keen on figuring out how to style a blanket scarf go with a plaid infinity scarf for a easy look.
