The Leather Legging

One of my favourite looks for fall is the leather legging. Since I so dearly love my cotton black legging (comfy is chic), I thought it would be time to graduate to something a little more stylish! There are so many amazing options that don’t make you look like you’re wearing cheep pleather leggings -or tight garbage bags around your legs. Yes, real leather can be pricey, starting at around $500 PER LEG! However more affordable options are available too.. just takes a little hunting around.

Here are some of my favourite finds:
Club Monaco faux Leather Legging $140
Michael Kors faux leather legging $100
Paige Paloma Leather Legging $300
Paper Crown Leather legging $160

Smoking Slipper

No Smoking here! But when it comes to the “it shoe” for fall, the smoking slipper is what you should be looking for! I’m slowly moving into this trend, as it wasn’t my first pick for a fall shoe! But the more glittery, polka dot, capped toe options I see, I find myself falling for this must have shoe!

On that note- I should make my mind up soon!  The rain has started to fall POUR in Vancouver, I might just have to stick to the rain boots from now on. Boo!

2. Nude Polka Dot Smoking Slipper $12
3. Sam Edelman Alvin Smoking Slippers $180

October? What?

First off, thank you for all the thoughtful messages and comments about our big news! We are so excited for our little baby Hibbs to arrive! It’s finally becoming oh so real! I will try my very  best not to flood my blog with baby items- but a few baby fashion items here and there won’t hurt right? Okay.. and maybe a little nursery brainstorming might be happening!

Lots of you have been asking what are my top trends/must haves are for the fall. This year is a little tricky, only because there isn’t anything NEW this season.

HOWEVER.. there are lots of trends that are returning with full force. Here are my top 7 favourite trends which I hope you can embrace this fall:

A. Leather details- sleeves, edges, pockets…
B. Ankle booties
C. A cozy sweater/jacket or cape.
D. Leather Square Shopping Bag/Tote
E. Lots of gold chunky jewellery
F. Touched of animal prints and fur.
G. Dark manicured nails!
