a foolproof fall outfit

Just wanted to quickly come on here and share some links to shop this outfit! I love pairing skirts with knitwear early into Fall. The mornings and nights are cool but the afternoons can still be quite warm, and so this outfit provides a little 

trends to try this fall

A few seasons ago velvet chokers were huge. And then furry pompoms on bags. In fashion, trends are always coming and going, but some of them are better than others. Here’s a few to pay attention to this Fall.   Silky Scarves In Summer we 

what I packed for iceland

Well this post is long overdue. I kept meaning to write it, but as soon as I sat down all I wanted to do was talk about Fall! What can I say, it’s my second favourite season and sometimes you have to run with the passion while it’s there.

But let’s back up a couple weeks shall we, and meander down memory lane back to my trip to Iceland. Oh, Iceland. Such a beautiful place. But so hard to pack for. I vividly remember a moment when I started laughing to myself because I had rain boots, a bikini and a cashmere sweater all crammed up against each other. It was tough trying to predict the weather!

In the end, I packed:


-t-shirts for under sweaters
-fitted long sleeves for under sweaters
-sweaters (of varying thicknesses)
-leggings (capris and pants)

-a rain coat
-a lightweight jacket
-rain boots
-running shoes
-hat & mittens


What I definitely didn’t need to pack – the shorts. It never got warm enough for me to want to wear them. Even the day we ran the half marathon (I wore capri leggings). What I wish I had packed more of – the long sleeve tops. I only packed two, but most days I found myself wanting to reach for them to wear under a big sweater or on their own. They ended up being worth their weight in gold as far as layering goes and I wish I had brought more options.

I also wish I had opted to bring a pair of flats with me. While Iceland was notoriously rainy this Summer, we lucked out with mostly sunshine during our visit so I ended up wearing my sneakers a lot more than I anticipated. My rain boots were great for when we were visiting places that were wet (ie. the waterfalls, the glacier lagoon, etc) but for walking around Reykjavík I wish I had a cuter alternative to my beat up runners. I was worried that I didn’t have a pair of waterproof hiking boots but we didn’t do anything too crazy outdoors and in the end didn’t need them.

I also packed several sweaters of varying coziness levels and would highly recommend doing that. On rainy days I wanted to bundle up in my wool or cashmere sweaters, but on sunny days I only wanted something light. I also found that my raincoat doubled as a great windbreaker, so I never found that I was missing out on one while I was there.

All in all, I thought I did pretty well. While what your packing totally depends on when you’re visiting Iceland, I think in general plan for lots of layering and you can’t really go wrong!

5 things to do this Fall

I’m not sure about you, but I love doing activities in Fall because it’s basically the last time I want to be outside until the end of March. Save a few nice Winter days past Christmas, the weather here in Canada can be downright brutal 

transitioning your wardrobe for fall

If there’s one thing I love, it’s when the nights get a little cooler and the humidity drops, and the feeling of Fall starts to set in. Something about changing seasons gives me a renewed sense of excitement. I love pulling out my Fall decorations, 

jewelry picks at affordable price points

Hey guys! So I actually got a lot of questions regarding the my necklaces the other day. Unfortunately, my horn necklace was custom made for me by my boyfriend at a local jewellers and I’m not sure where my pearl necklace came from as it was a gift from my grandparents. HOWEVER, I thought I’d take this opportunity to link similar versions of both, and some other picks I really love!

I love layering necklaces. Something about it feels very bohemian and yet also very chic. And the good news is everything I linked is very affordable! The most expensive one I included is the Large Horn Necklace from Missoma. It’s the necklace that posed as inspiration for my own, so I felt the need to include it if you wanted an almost exact look (the only difference is Kyle had a diamond put in mine). Otherwise, there are many less expensive versions out there. Enjoy!
