1. (Not) Your Grandmas Sweater Instagram was obsessed with all things pastel and cute this Summer, and it’s making it’s way into Fall — think cute little embroidered sweaters in varying shades of pastels. It’s cozy, playful and I’m super into it. You’ll be wearing …
So, as some of you saw on stories the other day, Chicwish reached out to me and asked if they sent me a few pieces, if I was interested in giving them a brand review. I said yes, picked out my favourite items, and here we are!
The first piece I picked out was their ‘Cuteness on Sleeves’ cardigan. This is a hand knitted acrylic and wool cardigan and I am IN LOVE. It’s so, so cute and cozy! It’s also not itchy at all, which is great because I had planned on wearing it exactly as pictured (with a cute little lace cami). I picked the S/M size but it runs large and should’ve gone with the XS.
The second piece I picked was their ‘Heart and Soul’ knit sweater. This little number has the cutest heart detail stitched onto the elbows, and again, I am totally in love! It’s thick, warm, not itchy at all, and fits great. I picked the Small for reference and find it runs TTS. I roll down the turtleneck!
The final piece I picked was their ‘Pocket of Charm’ mini skirt. I found it a little snug fitting it over my hips, but once it was in place, it fit me perfectly. It’s lined with shorts, and again, I found the material itself very thick (which is perfect for the Fall and Winter!). Finally, the zipper was also a little sticky when I first put it on, but the second time I put it on I didn’t have an issue, so maybe it just needed to be used. I ordered a size Small for reference!
Overall, I found all the pieces to be very well made. Nothing felt thin, or cheaply made – actually the opposite, I was quite impressed with how thick and luxurious all the pieces were!
I also found the sizing to be very accurate. I followed the sizing guide on the website and didn’t have a problem (looking back, I’m not even sure why I didn’t order the cardigan in a XS since that is my usual size for sweaters).
Shipping for me was also pretty good, considering it’s coming from another country. It took approximately a week and a half for it to arrive at my doorstep in Ontario, Canada.
So all in all, I was very impressed with the pieces I ordered from Chicwish, and would definitely recommend them to others! I definitely had my reservations, but honestly, I loved everything I picked and have nothing really negative to report. Hopefully this review proved helpful, and if so, let me know!

I always get super excited for warm weather because I find my style truly aligns and thrives in Summer. I love having a tan, having my hair lighter, and wearing things that I would best describe as summer girl cali chic. Even Kyle has commented before things like ‘wow, that really suits you’ and it’s usually something a little boho, a little flowy, girly and perfect for Summer.
Well, I think I’ve finally found my jam this Fall. And it’s still a little boho, a little flowy, but instead of Cali, I’m channeling Montana. Yup, western vibes are in this Fall and honestly, I’m here for it!
Give me all the suede boots, dark denim, wool hats and more. Think any and all looks from Hailey Bieber’s most recent Vogue shoot.
Below, I’ve linked my exact boots (I cannot recommend them ENOUGH), a hat super similar to mine, and several beautiful blouse options ranging from $30+. Happy shopping!

Lemon-y yellow has been all over Instagram this Summer. And it makes sense. Something about wearing yellow is an instant mood booster! It’s also pretty flattering against a Summer tan. Like white, but just a tad bit softer. The key to wearing yellow is choosing …
So — if you didn’t already assume, I don’t buy every single thing I link on my Zara sale favourites page. That would be, well, preposterous. But I don’t walk away completely unscathed. Here’s what I ended up buying:
Also important to note: if it’s not available in your size check back tomorrow morning, the warehouse usually does the restock early and they might restock in your size!
