Cozy and Stylish Outfit of the Day

9756B2B5-7EBC-4E62-9D48-616CCFD3A30F

Today was the first day that the temperature really dropped, here in Bobcaygeon. Once again, we’re coming up to that transition period between fall and winter. Putting together outfits around this time can sometimes be a little tricky. Especially if you still want to look stylish, but stay warm at the same time (without wearing a full on winter coat). That’s one of the reasons I love this look.

This jacket is so insanely warm and cozy, it blew me away! It’s soooo soft, it almost feels like you’re walking around in a cozy bathrobe lol. It’s by BB Dakota, and one of my fav items at the moment. When I had it on today, I received SO many compliments on it. Again, if you haven’t already noticed, I LOVE neutral pieces. I wore a burgundy top under it, to go with my boots. However, you could pretty much rock any colour you wanted with it.

The boots I’m wearing are by Michael Kors. They’re actually the exact same as the taupe ones I wore in this post here. The only difference is these ones have a small block heel on them. If you want more info on them, check out this blog post. It will give you more deets.

The purse I’m carrying is actually by Celine Dion. Celine Dion just recently launched her handbag line, and all of them are STUNNING. I love the gold detail on it, I feel like it really makes this look pop. Find more Celine Dion bags here.

Super Cute Neutral Look for Fall & Winter

9A530953-D5DA-4ACA-B500-098A89424536

I told you guys my next post was going to be about my hair, but when I put this look together today I got so excited, I had to bump it to the front of the line! But all the details about my hair will be next! Promise!

I’ve been eyeing these boots ever since they arrived at Bigley’s, and when I paired them with this vest I knew I HAD to have them! These boots are by Michael Kors. They’re available in burgundy and black as well. I could go on for days about these boots, but I’ll try to keep it short and sweet! One of the main reasons I love them so much, is how versatile they are. You could dress them up and wear them with a dress or a skirt. Or you could pair them with something more casual, like I did here or with a oversized sweater and leggings. I also love the colour. It’s the perfect neutral, meaning outfit options are endless! Another thing I should point out is how stretchy they are. One of my girlfriends always has trouble finding tall boots that fit her calf, but these ones fit no problem! The tie detail at the top also helps with this.  Also can we talk about how cute the silver chain detail around the heel is?! LOVE! Needless to say, these will be a pair of my go-to boots for fall and winter!

Moving on to this ADORABLE vest. It’s by Cupcakes & Cashmere. Again, the colour is the first thing I fell in love with. It’s neutral, and can be worn with numerous things, numerous different ways (over a dress, over a top and skirt, over a long sweater and leggings, etc.). Not to mention, it’s SOOOOO cozy! It’s the perfect definition of comfort and style. So again, this will be another key piece for me the next couple of seasons.

I paired it with a basic cream sweater underneath, and added this super cute Fossil purse, which is actually a brand spanken new arrival at Bigley’s.

Camo Fever

IMG_7211

I don’t know about you guys, but I have major camo fever this fall! I mean, my fiancé is on deployment in Afghanistan right now, so I’m sure that’s adding to my obsession with camo, LOL! But in all seriousness, I can’t stop wearing this camo coat!

This camo coat is by Dex and as soon as it arrived at Bigley’s, I went berserk! I had pretty much hit my budget in terms of clothing for the season, but I just could. not. resist! It’s also only $79.99, which pretty much made my decision for me. Most of the time I wear it with this cute little cable knit sweater underneath (also by Dex). It’s the perfect weight for fall. It’s not too heavy, but when the temperature drops at night, it still keeps you warm enough. I even wore this look to my fam’s Thanksgiving dinner, this past weekend. I decided to cuff the sweaters sleeves over top, just to give it that extra punch!

You could wear almost any pair of jeans with this look. I’ve rotated between black jeans, dark blue jeans, and the pair that I’m wearing.

I find camel (brown, chestnut, whatever you want to call it) accessories , look great with this look too! It adds some richness to the outfit.

Casual Yet Edgy Look For Fall

edgy blog post 1

Fall has officially started. However, here in Bobcaygeon the weather is giving us mixed signals. One day it’s hot like July, and other days it’s freezing like January. This look is perfect for those days when you just don’t know what to expect, when it comes to the weather. If it’s cooler you have the cardigan to keep you warm, and if it warms up you can just drop the cardi.

Bigley’s has been receiving new arrivals on the daily, and now that I’m back to work full-time, it’s hard to keep my hands off of all the new goodies. I was trying this dress and sweater on the other day, and I loved how comfortable it was. But I wanted to find a cute pair of shoes for it, in order to give it a little bit more sass. Needless to say, these amazing booties were exactly what I was looking for.

These booties are by Gerry Weber, a new brand Bigley’s just started carrying this season. I’ve been wearing them to work all day long, and they’re extremely comfortable. I love how they add the perfect amount of edginess to the look. They can be worn with rolled up jeans and a cute shirt, or with a cute little dress like I’m wearing here. They’re definitely a go-to bootie for me this fall and winter season.

The dress and cardigan I’m wearing are by BB Dakota. Both these items are sooooooo comfortable! I literally feel like I’m in pajamas at work. The dress is also super cute on its on. It’s a tank style top (no sleeves). This cardigan is also a perfect go-to basic for fall and winter. It’s easy to throw on with leggings and high boots, or just over top of a t-shirt and jeans. There’s so many different ways you can wear it, it’s a piece you can’t go wrong with.

To top off the look I threw on this cute little hat, which is available at Bigley’s Beach House.

Outfit Post: Michael Kors Vest & Booties

It’s been a while since I’ve done an outfit post, but now that fall fashion is in full effect I figured I better get cracking! If you haven’t checked out Bigley Shoes and Clothing new fall arrivals, I HIGHLY suggest that you do! Even if you don’t live in the Kawartha Lakes area, check out their online store. Their new arrivals are seriously drop dead gorgeous, I literally can’t get enough.

This vest is by Michael Kors and has literally been flying out the door. In fact, there is only one left in stock and it’s a size Large. However, if you’re interested in purchasing this vest, please shoot me an e-mail, and if we get enough requests we may restock. It costs $195.00, and is honestly worth every penny. It’s the perfect statement piece for fall and winter and is nice and cozy. When it comes to washing, you have the option of hand washing it and laying flat to dry or dry cleaning.

These leather booties have become my absolute favourite booties for fall. They are also by Michael Kors, and are so extremely comfortable! I love the charcoal colour because I feel like it’s not a colour that you see on a regular basis. And I love how the lighter hue really adds an extra pop to the bottom half of an outfit. These are available online and in store and will definitely be a bootie that you will have for the long haul.

This hat is by Delux and has always been a “go-to” for me. It can add class and sass to a variety of different outfit styles. And it can also make those bad hair days go un-noticed (Shhh!). This one accessory can truly “make” an outfit, even if its simply a sweater and jeans. Again, definitely worth the purchase.

Fall Nail Polish Trends

nailpic2

Though we’re not all that excited about the closing of summer, part of us is looking forward to a few of the little aspects that come with Fall: saying goodbye to the humid air (that makes it brutal for keeping your hair straight), layering clothes, and changing up bright summer colors for a moodier color selection. One of the best ways to emphasis a novel fall look is with a crisp manicure. According to Elle magazine, these are a few of the trending nail polishes for fall!
