Maroon Colours for Fall/Autumn πŸ‚

Summer is over... Unfortunately, that also means that the days are shorter, the air is crispier, and the temperature is lower and lower everyday. Styling outfits during a transition weather period can be a hassle. It's that time of the year when wearing a sweater seems like a good idea in the morning but in the afternoon, you're regretting it. I've already experienced it once.

While fall is difficult to style for when there are days so warm and other days when you just want to hide behind your blanket, it is however the time of the year to bust out any fall colour pieces stacked at the back of your closet. Anything maroon/brown, burgundy, mustard, yellow, olive green, navy blue, plum, etc.

I've dedicated this blog post entirely on incorporating the maroon colour for a perfect Fall πŸ‚wardrobe.
The brown girl chose the maroon colour, are you surprised? πŸ˜‹

Subtle Maroon Colour in 
Accessories - Belt & Cross Body Bag
This outfit was definitely out of my comfort zone but is my favourite of all. It's the perfect transition for those warm Summer-Fall days. It has a very subtle touch of maroon in the accessories I chose for the outfit : Western Brown Belt, Brown Cross Body Bag. I layered my lace black choker necklace with two pendant necklaces. As for the outfit, I chose to pair my asymmetric black denim skirt with the textured over the shoulder crop top from H&M and finished the look with my favourite pair of ankle boots from Nasty Gal.




Maroon Shirt with Maroon Cross Body Bag
This corduroy shirt couldn't be more perfect for those crispy and chilly Fall weather days. To change it up from the norm, the usual the jeans & shirt look, I paired it with a black maxi pleated skirt instead. It's a perfect skirt to twirl around in. Can you believe that I scored this skirt from wish.com for $5? I wore my wide ZARA belt, bought from Winners to hide the elastic part of the skirt (not a fan of elastic showing in an outfit). To add a little more height, I paired with chunky boots from Nasty Gal and threw on my faux leather jacket from TopShop to stay warmer.





Maroon Mini Skirt w/ Fluffy Sweater

Let me just start by saying that this sweater was gifted to me by my dad for my birthday. I have two very similar sweaters and I was shocked that my dad is finally understanding my taste. I'll probably be wearing it a lot during Fall and Winter. There's something about the fluffiness that makes it so cozy and comfortable. I paired it with my mini suede buttoned skirt from ZARA and my chunky boots. A perfect transition outfit for the days when it's not too hot or not too chilly.





Maroon Overalls w/ OTK Boots
To stay in tune with the Halloween theme, I paired this corduroy rusty orange/maroon overalls from Forever 21 with my favourite black turtle neck from ZARA. I added some sheer tights to stay warmer and wore my over the knee boots from ALDO.



I've also created a little collage of other outfit combinations that I would 100% wear. I hope you like my personalized "mΓ©lange". I had a lot of fun creating them and absolutely love how they turned out. Let me know which outfit is your favourite in the comments.

Summer Dresses Diaries 2019

Happy Friday everyone! Did you enjoy this short work week? For those heading back to school this week, Gluck, you got this!

Unfortunately, Labour Day and First Day of School are all signs of the end of Summer.
Perfect Summer days in Canada are very limited.  You better believe that I enjoy every minute of Summer by pulling out my Summer Dresses and flaunting my genetically tanned legs 😝

With Summer coming to an end, I decided to put together a Summer Dresses Diaries 2019 featuring all the new dresses I've added to my closet this year.

I've named this blog post "Diaries 2019" with hope of turning this into a new series of Summer Dresses.
Keep your fingers crossed for Summer Dresses Diaries 2020🀞

Outfit 1 - Spaghetti Straps Yellow Dress
This dress from Winners was a steal for $29.99. The straps were adjustable. I loved the fit, the asymmetry and the length of the dress.  I loved how simple and comfortable this dress was, yet with a touch of elegance. The only downside of this dress is the texture: Linen. It creases very easily but for such a gorgeous and flattering dress, it's worth ironing.
To accessorize this beautiful dress, I paired it with a gold thread choker necklace and a pendant necklace. I wore my flat sandals from Ardene and a hat.


 

Outfit 2 - Puffy Sleeves Polka Dot Dress 
Also from Winners for the price of $29.99, I cannot count how many times I've worn this dress all Summer long. I was on the lookout for a polka dot dress and this one caught my eye the minute I walked down the aisle. It's a very subtle polka dot pattern on this gorgeous bright orange fabric. The dress has a fabric belt, which can be tied either in the front or at the back. I prefer to tie it at the back since it accentuates my waist more. 
For accessories, I chose a gold thread choker necklace, a pendant necklace, some rings, and I finished the look with my gorgeous boots from Nasty Gal, which btw are the perfect dupe for Prada's Block Heel Leather Bootie πŸ‘



Outfit 3 - Puffy Sleeves Shirt Dress
Have you noticed a pattern? It's pretty clear that I've been digging the puffy sleeves trend. This shirt dress was a MUST though! It is the most comfortable and loose Linen dress I own. This dress is pretty much TomBoy Style dreams, and has my name written all over it. Originally from ZARA, I thrifted this striped shirt dress from Plato's Closet for $15. 
I chose to accentuate my waist by pairing it with a wide black belt also from ZARA but bought from Winners. For shoes, I chose my laced block heel sandals from Urban Planet and I wore my feathery earrings from Ardene that I bought a while back.



Outfit 4 - Belted Striped Dress
Another pattern? Loving the stripes πŸ’–
I bought this dress from H&M for those business chic days. The dress comes with a belt, though I don't quite like how it's meant to be tied. I'm more of "bow" kind of girl. I love the mid length sleeves of the dress making it a perfect summer dress as well as transitional dress into either Spring/Fall.
To accessorize this dress, I wore my Calvin Klein watch, Michael Kors lock bracelet and a simple snake pendant necklace. To finish the look, I wore my brown Ankle Boots.
