shades of fall.

this skirt definitely spoke to my obsession for all things fall.
it looks a tad red here, but in real life it's very "squashy". 

what could be better than a gorgeous fall day, in the most beautiful city, strolling the streets, grabbing a coffee and having chats with people who know your heart like the back of their hand.

enjoy the leaves...
or the return of the spring+summer sun!

me oh my.  +35 on a fall day?!?! global warming?   
it's actually frightening.

well beauties, i am off to vancouver tomorrow to visit my best-est girlfriends in the whole world. can't even contain myself! 

*sidenote* i am not even going to hide the fact that i will be on the lookout for zac efron and the twlight clan who are both filming in the city (!!!) i am only slightly obsessed with the major babe that is zac efron. anyone? anyone? 
beware. i am  true + solid nerd.


have a gorgeous weekend.

one of my favorite sex & the city quotes:

“Maybe mistakes are what make our fate... without them what would shape our lives? Maybe if we had never veered off course we wouldn't fall in love, have babies, or be who we are. After all, things change, so do cities, people come into your life and they go. But it's comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart... and if you're very lucky, a plane ride away”

i honestly can't even  begin to describe my love for all things fall.
and as the crisp wind blows along my face, and the cool breeze rocks me to sleep.
i am just so thankful for every single thing in my life.

i mean who doesn't love : pumpkin spice - chunky knits - crisp morning walks- dark palettes with pops of color (hello jewel tones!) - leaf changes - searching for the perfect boot + coat - outlining a new reading list that will carry you through the winter months- faux fur - jumbo socks - drinking coffee without breaking a sweat- steamy oatmeal w/ banana - cashmere-  still wearing bare legs but with a super warm top- thanksgiving... and so much more. and in a months time. the perfection of the first snowfall.
wow, i sure did miss 4 distinct seasons. seasons of change - seasons of love.

i'm off for a pumpkin spice soy latte !


where would i go + what would i wear?

date night. a little skin. patent shoes. killer.

sunday morning brunch. spring time in the city. pastels + oxfords. prep-ster + pizazz.

it has been so insanely beautiful here that i can't even handle it.
summer is still in full swing and i'm lovin it.
oh sweet canada. your crazzzy weather just boggles my mind.

to say i've worn this dress over a dozen times in the past 3 weeks is no understatement. 
button ups- t shirts- long sleevers- jean jackets + vests- leather bomber- cardigans.
floral dress schizophrenia!



snip. snap.

took heaps of inches off my hair (for me anyways)

i've only had my haircut for a day, and i'm already getting mistaken for a MUCH younger age... 
i remember a year back getting asked (on a flight from africa) if i was OK to travel alone ! ah!  i had to laugh out-loud.
i guess that is a good thing? 

have a beautiful week.

a sunny saturday morning with besties is priceless.

all hyped up on americano's w/ soy...
popped around the corner from cafe haven to frolic in the grass.
simply blissful.

on another note:
definitely loving plum for fall.
makes for the perfect pop in my forever neutral wardrobe. 

while still on a buzzzz. i did something nuts (for the grandma that i am). will show you next post.
stay tuned....

enjoy the rest of your weekend.

the pointy toe is back in my life.
i definitely shunned them like the plague for many, many years BUT these were the first pair that caught me eye since pre-millennium ( has it been that long?!)
i still remember y2k...

anyways, these shoes called my name and upon trying them on the girl said their comfort level exceeded the richter scale of heel-wearability.


i am going to wear my little pointy toes proud.
can't wait to pair them with black stockings for fall + winter.
the point will elongate my leg that extra inch. sweeeeeet.
why did i ever stop wearing them again?



jacket. vintage. shorts. diesel. shirt.hm. shoes. marni. purse. zara.

finally found my jean jacket.
of course it has to be on the last "official" night of summer! but these bad-boys just get better with age... so all is not lost.

jetting to the parlour magazine bash. to soak up the crisp summer air. meet new fresh faces...and just be!

ciao summer sun. hello beautiful fall...and countdown to fashion weeks around the globe. what a month it will be.



a friday afternoon of work and rain.

i desperately seek comfort when you can't go outside without rain boots + coat + umbrella. or to be safe all three.

things to stay cozy ( i love this word, makes me smile everytime!)

new vanilla candles (smells like fresh cookies)
coffee in the morning...tea now.
swedish love and guilty pleasure in the form of 2010 ikea catalogue.
stripe scrunchie. not leaving the house. won't cause breakage. so scrunchie it is!
denim leggings and chunky socks.
window perched for that cool late summer breeze.
comfy comfy comfy bedding + my 4 poster bed.

have a insanely gorgeous long weekend.
love you.
