Sweater Dress Weather!

We are finally having some beautiful Fall days where I live. So nice to have a break from all of the rain! I can ditch the boots and raincoats for a few days and finally start living in some of my favourite dresses.  My go to outfit right now is a sweater dress and cute ankle boots.  I have rounded up a bunch of fun and reasonably priced sweater dresses that I am loving right now!

10 Boots I am loving for this Fall!

There are SO many adorable boots for Fall right now. I had such hard time choosing just 10 for this post, but I managed! I kept my selection to more affordable options, all under $100.00 (with the exception of number four- the OTK boots from Goodnight Macaroon, but they ALWAYS have a 40% off sale happening which brings them to under $100!)  Trends I am personally loving in footwear right now is obviously animal print: leopard, crocodile and snakeskin.  I am also obsessed with all of the Western inspired booties. And of course studded. I always love embellished and studded boots.  If you are looking for something fun this season, I’ve got you covered 😉

 

FALL BOOTS

 

One. Snake Print Bootie // Two. Combat Boot with Metal Chain // Three. Cognac Western Bootie // Four. OTK Suede Boots // Five. Slouch Heeled Boot // Six. Studded Motorcycle Boot // Seven. Beige Suede Anke Boot // Eight. Black Suede Bootie // Nine. Leopard Bootie // Ten. White Leather Croc Print Boot

 

For the sake of full disclosure, I actually own 5 of these boots myself. And I can vouch that comfort is totally a priority for me! I would wear every single pair of these. And perhaps by the end of this Fall I just might… LOL! Happy shopping friends.

A few Amazon Favourites

I cannot believe how much cute stuff I have been finding on Amazon lately! I think I will ty to do a monthly post rounding up all of my favourite finds. I have had a few people ask me about my experiences shopping on Amazon and honestly, about 90% have been great. I always read the reviews as far as quality and sizing and make a decision based off of those. Quite often it will give a ship date 3 or 4 weeks down the road but I usually receive everything within a couple weeks if not sooner 🙂

Trend to Try: Snakeskin Print!

If I’m being honest, this is not a post I ever thought I would be writing. You see, I am absolutely PETRIFIED of snakes! I don’t like to see pictures of them, hear people talk about them or even watch animated ones.  So this is definitely not a trend I thought I would be digging… but I have to admit, I am loving it!  I have a feeling snakeskin print is going to be everywhere!  I have probably maxed out my wardrobe with leopard (seriously, I might need an intervention!) so snakeskin is a pretty fun alternative as far as prints go.  It is also versatile for seasons. I wore this midi skirt with a tank and sandals to lunch the other day, but can easily pair it with a sweater and boots come Fall and Winter!

snakeskin skirt

I have rounded up a bunch of fun snakeskin pieces if it is a trend you are thinking about trying. As always, they are all under $100, most of them are less then $50.

One. Two. Satin Midi Skirt // Three. Paper-bag Pants // Four. Five. Strappy Sundress // Six. Maxi Shirt Dress // Seven. Wide Leg Jumpsuit // Eight. V-neck Jumpsuit // Nine. Crossbody Bag // Ten. V-neck Tank // Eleven. Loafer

Summer Style with Vionic Shoes!

One of the things I love about blogging is getting to know new companies and products. When Vionic approached me to see if I would like to try a pair of their Kirra backstrap sandals I had actually never owned a pair of their shoes before.  I am officially hooked! I can honestly say that they are one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I have ever worn.

Vionic technology is biomechanically designed to hug your arches and support your feet to achieve maximum comfort. I was able to wear these sandals all day at the beach, chasing children and walking the promenade for lunch with zero discomfort.  The combination of cute and comfortable is key for me when choosing my footwear nowadays! I already have my eyes on another style of shoe on their website 😉

The 2019 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

nords

Can you even call yourself a blogger if you are not completely obsessed with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (also know as the #NSale)?!  I am sure you have already heard that the time is almost here & I am so excited about this sale. I can’t wait to share my picks 🙂  Early access shopping begins this Friday, July 12 until July 18 for Nordstrom card holders. It is not to late to apply… Having the card is really the key to gaining access to this amazing sale! The sale will then open to the public on Friday July 19 and runs until August 4.  Prices then go back to full price on August 5.

2018-07-12_20-17-18

Why is the sale so amazing?

Unlike most sales which mark down older merchandise that isn’t selling, it is NEW Fall items that are majorly discounted during this sale and then return to regular price at the end of the sale on August 5. So essentially, a PRE season sale!  The brands featured are some of my favourites, such as Tory Burch, Rebecca Minkoff, Kendra Scott etc. not just the smaller, unknown ones!

Nord

My advice:

Take inventory and figure out what the holes in your upcoming Fall wardrobe are. A new pair of high waisted skinny jeans? A cute suede bootie that will be an absolute staple? Cozy cardigans and sweaters for when the temperature chills? Have you been eyeing up a new set of luggage? Now is the time to snag it!  Make a list ahead of time. Otherwise the deals can be overwhelming!

If there is something you  love, make sure you keeping checking back…. Nordstrom will often for restock or add additional inventory 🙂  Don’t get discouraged if it says the item is sold out.  It’s not over until it’s over… The sale runs until August 5th.  The most popular items will sell out quickly, so you have to have a strategy!

Checkout! If  you have managed to score an item that you want, complete your purchase!  Nordstrom has super easy & hassle free returns if you change your mind later.  Last year I played it too slow and went back to look for more… by the time I went back to actually checkout a few of my favorites had sold out!

Nordstrom has released its Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalogue if you are wanting to peruse before the sale starts!  I will be back to update with my favourites from the sale when it becomes public.  Happy shopping friends.

Wooden Ships Gorgeous Knits

I had never actually heard of Wooden Ships before they reached out to me.  I am committed to being 100% authentic with my blog so I read up on the company a bit before I accepted the collaboration.  I absolutely love the story behind this company! Wooden Ships is a small family owned and run company that has been around since 1992.  It was founded by Paola Buendía and her husband, Mark Donovan.  They created the company “with the merging of many of her life-long loves – literature, travel, fashion, and the environment.”  You can read more about the story behind their company here.

Their sweaters are absolutely gorgeous and have a laid back, slouchy, comfortable feel to them.  I could tell as soon as I received my order that it was such good quality.  It hung so nicely and was so soft.  This sweater is the prefect weight for these upcoming Summer evenings! I also read that each sweater is made to order to reduce unwanted merchandise.  I loved this commitment to reducing wasted materials. They also use simple packaging and eco-friendly oxo-degradable plastic bags. These bags are produced with an additive that makes the plastic decompose far more rapidly than normal plastic.
