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.

FALL FASHION SPECIAL | How to Slay Fall for Under $100

via Dynamite

I have a growing list of concerns when it comes to fall shopping. First, the jeans. My old ones look old, but not old enough to look vintage, so I need new ones that look vintage but aren't, if you know what I mean. Then, the sweaters - I mean, nothing gets you over the loss of summer faster than a cozy oversized sweater paired with perfect boots. Speaking of which, don't even get me started on boots. You'd only have to glance at my bursting closets to realize I do n.o.t. need new shoes but somehow, every fall, there I am taking home blue velvet ankle boots that I 'had to have' and over-the-knee suede boots that I literally 'could not live without'. So many wants. So many bills. 

While I firmly believe in investing in quality pieces that you love, I've found loads of fantastic pieces that fall well within my shopping budget this year. The stores are loaded with cozy, well-made finds that you can add to your existing wardrobe now to get it right up to date. Silver shoes, beautifully detailed knits, and subtle hits of soft pink, purple and olive green give me all the feels I need to get pumped up for the season ahead. Scroll through the thumbnails below to get your fall fashion fix. Did I mention there's nothing over $100 on this list? #slay

Happy Sept, beauties! Can't wait to shop with you this season xx

DAD FOR THE WIN | 40 Genius Father's Day Gifts

via Le Château

My dad was the best. He lived his life with heart and joy and boundless energy. He would strike up a conversation with anyone he met and they would inevitably leave feeling happier because my dad just had this way of making people feel special. And it was genuine. He loved people and he just loved life, embracing every invitation and adventure that came his way - and there were many. He told the funniest jokes, the most outlandish stories, made a mean drink, and cared so, so much about his 'girls'.

My dad is gone now and I miss him constantly. I was one of the lucky ones to have a truly great dad and his impact on my life was tremendous. Now that I have kids of my own, I get to see my husband be a great dad like my own dad was. He's funny and caring and patient and thoughtful. He goes away for work but you know that when he's away, all he wants to do is get back to his littles. My son looks like him and acts just like him too, which explains sooo much. Yup, turns out cuteness is a curse (You see, cute + charming means you can pretty much get away with everything because you have your mom wrapped around your adorable little finger. At least I'm aware of it, right? Hmm...better work on that...)

With Father's Day only a week away, I thought I'd do a little pre-shopping. After all, dads deserve a big hand for doing those extra little things that end up meaning the most. Scroll down for 40 fun father's day gifts to help you think outside the box of golf balls this time around. We love you dads!
