Playing In The Leaves

I'm not fond of myself in this photo, however I love how cute
Natasha's daughter Vyla looks here playing in the leaves!

Cardigan: Better On You
Tank: Smart Set
Pants: Selfmade
Necklace: Gift
Sandals: Nine West

Here are some outfit shots from my weekend with Natasha. I will say that obviously I should of checked the forecast because I had packed for cool weather and then it was 27 degrees out and I had to "make things work" when it came to wearing what I had brought with me! So silly but I guess we all have our moments....

Meanwhile, I have come down with a brutal cold, our internet stops working for more than 24 hours, our cable box died, and now my blog roll isn't showing up! The cold may have me a little on edge so all these pesky little things annoy me much more!

I'm delighted Fall has arrived around here, I've thoroughly enjoyed driving to work and seeing the leaves flying all around! I enjoyed taking these photos with the beautiful fall colours starting to set in for the background.

On a very exciting note, as you are reading this I will be on my way to see Natasha for the weekend!

Have a great weekend, see you Tuesday!

90's Vibe

Zara Dress: Thrifted
Cardigan: Made by my Grandma
Tights: Winners
Boots: Aldo

Who What Wear had sent out an email with 90's inspired looks and it really had me loving what I was seeing so here's my version.

Side note: I thrifted this dress a while back but then realized the slit that was at CF was at an unfortunate height and at long last I have closed up the slit and here I am!

I got fringe! It's a big change and I'm loving it. A lady I work with told me I look like a French model, and I can't say I didn't like hearing it, ha ha!

Peplum Fun

Skeleton Necklace: Knotsberry Farms
Ring: Winners

I think this will be one of the last of my more summery outfit posts since I can really feel Fall in the air these days. I got this green skirt back when Natasha visited and we had our shopathon, I've just been bad about getting photos. Thanks again Tash for helping me decided on this one, I love it!

Paisley Pants

Jacket: Zara
Tank: Le Chateau
Pants: H&M
Wedges: Aldo
Necklaces: Thrifted

This are some of the comfiest pants ever, like pj pants but appropriate for public display. Plus they have amazing colours in the print and I got to bust out the big yellow wedge heels, which I feel spend too much time in their shoe box :-(

My funny faces in the above photos are why I usually wear sunnies for blog photos, now you know.

Better On Me

Jacket: Better On You
Top: H&M
Skirt: Thrifted
Boots: The Shoe Company
Necklace: Thrifted

I got this amazing jacket from Better On You a consignment store my friend manages, the sleeves are long enough, it has the most amazing buttons and gathered chiffon around the hems and neckline. I had also been wanting a lighter coloured jacket so all in all this jacket is perfect!

Have I mentioned the metallic fabric I bought last week? Stay tuned....

to charities including the Children's Hospital
Captain Wayne was amazing and lent me his Captain's hat while he let me
drive the SS Moyie on the resevoir!

Oh Short!

Dress: Thrifted
Necklaces: F21 & Walmart
Bangles: Ten Thousand Villages
Shoes: Nine West
Sunnies: Aldo

I had a brilliant long weekend, I hope you did too. Mine included fabric hunting, which led to a real gem of a store, the farmers market, dinner out with a friend, piles of ironing done (Okay maybe thats not exciting to you but all the empty space where the piles of ironing had been is exciting to me), plus I got a lot of alterations and mending done. I really love checking things off my to do list!

The beau finished off our long weekend by cooking stuffed bell peppers and bbq chicken and he did an outstanding job!
