FALL FOR IT | 5 Wearable Fall Trends We're Totally Feeling

via Roots

When it comes to fashion, let's face it: being Canadian is a total dream. I mean, since we live through all four seasons, we get to switch our wardrobes with the weather. If you're like me, you've finally put away your summer things and have started to wear your fall favourites. You've probably taken stock of the things you'll be living in for the next few months and are currently wondering what to add to your closet to get it up-to-date. Me too.

So I did a little trend shopping. And while I'm always tempted by some of the boundary-pushing trends I see on the runways, a few key trends always stand out as the most wearable. These are the pieces you'll live in every day and by just adding a few key items to what you already own, you'll look like you're totally with it. So which ones made the cut? If your fall wardrobe is mostly made up of blacks and greys, you're going to love fall's bold reds and purples. From a texture perspective, it's all about adding faux fur and velvet to give depth to your look. And for weekends, I can't wait to cozy up in some of the season's oversized sweaters (look for statement sleeves and asymmetrical hems for Fall '17) paired up with waxy leggings or relaxed joggers and comfy kicks. 

Happy fall that finally feels like fall. Scroll down for my wonderful, totally wearable picks.

GET IT GIRL | Workout Gear That Might Actually Get Us to the Gym

via Reitmans

When it comes to getting healthy, it's not supposed to be about how you look, of course. But let's face it, as self-aware as I pretend to be, I'm not gonna lie - looking good is half the battle for me. I know that the real motivation for working out should always be about feelings - you know, feeling good and feeling healthy and feeling at one with my chakra. Except, I'm not sure what a chakra is. What I do know is that all of those things are super important but useless knowledge if I can't actually get myself to the G-Y-M.

I don't know about you but for me, it takes a few motivators to get me there, especially after a long and lazy couple of weeks (fine, months). And I'm not talking personal trainers. It's a new pair of cool kicks that I'll admire as I'm slogging it out on the stair machine. It's sports bras that stop the bounce and let me focus on all of those extra holiday calories I'm burning instead. It's about leggings that work with my curves and keep me sucked in to help me visualize how my thighs will look after hundreds of lunges. And sometimes, it's about things that bring joy during every tough workout - from a sleek S'well bottle to earphones that keep the good vibes going. So necessary. 

Scroll down for the cute new workout I'm loving right now and good luck, whatever your 2017 goals might be. You've got this.
