Welcome to fall

Remember when it was June? And you had that first really warm day and you thought “yeah, I could get used to this”. And then BAM it’s October? You read that right, it is October. Which means it is officially fall, which is just a long way of saying it is time to break out your cold weather uniform! There’s something magical about fall; the crispness in the air, the colours the leaves change, and everything is both beautiful and creepy. There’s also a not so magical side effect of being cold; having brain freeze, being too cold to think about what to do let alone what to wear. This is why I told you get your fall uniform ready. It’s a simple look that you can fall back on when it is too cold to think. Mine is this: Jeans of some sort, turtleneck, my dad’s jean jacket and a scarf.

Mixing fabrics

I’ve got to say one of my favourite things to is to mix fabrics and materials. It adds another texture to outfits. Especially in fall when there is so much colour from the changing leaves and the crispness in the air, it’s a perfect time to try it. Here I’ve pair my leather jacket with a tweed skirt and a light blouse, three different textures but they work so well off one another. Leather (vegan or not) is also amazing in the fall and gives a slight cool toughness to all outfits aka can make your skirt look less girly.

My favourite accessory for fall

And just like that it seems the winds have changed, and now a cooler air has set over Kingston.  This can only mean one thing: Winter is coming. Nooooooooo!  As you wipe away your tears let me tell you about one of my favourite accessories for autumn to see if that helps heal your wounds.

I recently borrowed (stole) my boyfriend’s gorgeous Filson backpack, and I may never give it back. It’s beautifully made with the nicest materials, and it makes going back to class seem not so terrible.

aka I feel hella fancy carrying it around which makes going to an 8:30 am lecture doable. Fancy > everything, right friends?

I’ve paired the backpack with a luscious knit turtleneck from Zara and my go to black jeans from American Apparel.

What are you carrying you stuff around in right now?
