Ahh! It’s Halloween, also known as my favourite holiday of the year. You get to dress up however you want, and no one can judge you because it is your costume!
Me, and my friends are very anti buying pre-created Halloween costumes. Getting creative is half the fun!
This year I was a creepy doll, I always love being scary. I used everything from my own closet, which is very rewarding not needing to have to spend to much money.
I suggest you also check out Sirens, Stitches and any other outlet stores. They have absolutely EVERYTHING you need. There are a bunch of stores on Orfus Road that you should for sure check out if you are in need of a costume
On me: Divaceous dress, Boohoo heels, American Apparel Socks
Little Mermaid: Victoria Secret bathing suit, Sirens skirt, Topshop necklace, Steve Madden shoes
Princess Jasmine: Sirens shirt, Aritzia pants, Zara shoes, Disney Store accessories
Let me know what your being in the comments below, happy Halloween.
Fall in Toronto lasts approximately 3 weeks, until it is absolutely freezing and you can no longer get away with just a leather coat and a scarf. It is pretty upsetting if you’re not interested in having to bundle up in a million layers to just be semi-warm in the Toronto weather.
Yes, winter can be a fashionable month too but it all depends on your outerwear! We are not a city that you can get away with wearing just a trench or a duster to keep us warm. We need some serious coats to get us threw the longest season: winter or the arctic (the shoe fits!)
I have put together a few of the coats that I think are the warmest, and most ‘fashionably fitting’ for the season. Unfortunately, when it comes to winter coats you need to drop a substantial amount of money. Toronto can get seriously freezing, so it’s worth the extra money to ensure you are keeping warm.
- Parajumper Gobi
- Canada Goose Montebello Parka
- Mackage Adalina
- Pajar Canada Brooklyn
- Rudsak Sophie
I personally have the Rudsak Sophie and I think it is amazing! Very warm and comfy, as well it is a 70/30 split with down fur. I need something warm because I take public transit to and from school, so this jacket is the perfect fit for me!
Most of these brands you are able to pick up at Sporting Life, or in Yorkdale they have the Rudsak store. My one tip would be to grab your jackets now! They are selling pretty quickly because the temperatures are dropping and everyone wants to keep warm.

I don’t know what happened to me but at some point I fell seriously in love with running shoes. They are so comfortable, and you can truly wear them with anything. Dressing them up or down, they are my new obsession.
Whether I wear them to workout (which is NOT often), running around doing errands, or wearing them to school, I always chose my runners over any other option.
As crazy it is, there are even some nightclubs that I would rock my sneaks in, wearing a fancy outfit (think dress or skirt) and make it more casual in a pair of Nike’s.
I have put together a collage of my wish list, or the runners I am adoring right now. Air Jordan’s are always on my mind…and that is honestly when I fangirl over Basketball players. Their shoe game is next level, including their shoe closet!
- Nike Air Max 90: Milan
- Nike Air Huarache
- Air Jordan 11 Retro Low: Citrus
- Nike Air Roche Fly Knit
- Nike SB Max Janoski: Marty McFly
- Air Jordan 5 Retro: Bel Air
If you love sneakers, especially Jordan’s, check out DeMar DeRozan’s shoe closet, It’s honestly my #shoegoals!
If you’re interested when the next release of Jordan’s are, so you can pick yourself up a pair, I would check out: www.solecollector.com
Tell me what your favourite pair of running shoes are! Let me know in the comments below.
I like to think of myself as a sneaker head. Not an intense one, but I do have a serious addiction of buying Nike running shoes.
This past year they re-created the Huaraches, bringing back the original colour ways and a few new ones. I had to get my hands on them, and it’s honestly like walking on a cloud!
When wearing a pair of statement runners, you don’t want your outfit to be too loud. I normally will run around on a Sunday completing errands in the shoes.
On me: Nike Huaraches, Citizens of Humanity Rocket Jeans, Old Navy Grey t-shirt, Marc Jacobs purse

October has been a totally crazy month, which means I have been a little behind on my shopping! October has been a weird month for weather, but since it has gotten colder in the second half it was time to stock up on some cozy sweaters.
I also needed to update some of my ‘going out clothes’, which is a much harder task. Toronto is a cold city, but I rather not look frumpy going out down town.
Joe Fresh and Urban Outfitters were my go-to this month, they have some really cute fall finds, that I suggest you check out!
1. Ribbed Turtleneck Top
2. Light Grey Mix Cashmere Sweater
3. Corduroy Mini Skirt
4. Adidas Mock Neck Tee
5. Slouchy Turtleneck
As it is probably obvious, I am totally obsessing over turtlenecks right now, but hey! It makes sense with the season.
What I love about all the clothing that I bought, is that I am able to mix and match with them. They are also able to be dressed up and down for a lot of different occasions!
The photos were taken on an iphone, so excuse the quality! But it gives you a taste of how I put together some of my clothes from my October haul!
Let me know what your go to clothing piece is for Fall in the comments below.
I was so lucky to be able to collaborate with my friend Kelcey Vossen this past week, and she created two unbelievable illustrations of me! She is living in NYC and totally rocking it. Her everyday snaps of her illustrations transport you to a carefree and beautiful world where you are living in watercolor, and I love it.
Her work is absolutely fantastic, and makes me wish I could draw!
Below I have attached the illustration she created of me as well as a few of my favourites pieces of hers.
If you don’t follow her already, I would highly suggest you check her page out: @knicolevossen, or her website: http://www.kelceyvossen.com
Girl is crazy talented, and there is nothing I love more then being inspired by someone who is so in love with what they do, and bringing joy to someone else’s life through creativity!

The biggest problem every morning is a pretty classic one for many girls! What am I going to wear to school?! I don’t love being too fancy, especially now in midterm season since I am pulling extra hours at the library.
It is important to remember that you must dress for your day to day activities, and if wearing jeans and a t-shirt is good for you, then rock it!
I normally like to experiment with my shoes, there is nothing I love more then a funky pair that expresses my own individuality.
On me: Forever 21 t-shirt, Levi’s jeans, Aldo backpack, Vans Princess shoes
How do you like to express your own personal style! Let me know in the comments below.
Toronto has been completely obsessed with baseball ever since The Blue Jays have been kicking butt the entire season. In acceptance of the fact that they will *hopefully* be winning the World Series I have picked out some fun baseball jersey’s that you can wear while cheering on your favourite MLB team.
From reppin’ a team, to just some funky designs, the baseball jersey is a fun shirt to wear to look casual but also sporty.
I have picked out a few online website’s that you can order a jersey if you’re interested in your ‘boyish’ side.
- Vintage Angels Jersey
- Blue Jays Jersey
- Married To The Mob Jersey
- Tie Dye Jersey
- Dodgers Jersey
I personally have the Dodgers jersey, and love wearing it out for brunch with ripped jeans and sneakers, perfecting the casual fun look!
Not added in the collage is Alyssa Milano (you may know her from Charmed), has her own sports line: Touch By Alyssa Milano which has numerous other sports jerseys for all the professional sports teams out there! Check it out if you’re interested in repping all of you’re choice teams: http://touchbyajm.com/

Happy Thanksgiving friends! Hopefully you had a nice and relaxing long weekend, and are ready to take on a short week! With Thanksgiving, comes a delicious dinner with family and friends which is always my favourite!
With dinner comes what you’re going to wear which happens to be complicated, because you will be eating A LOT of food.
I have chosen a pretty casual outfit, my dinner is not that fancy-the focus is more on the food!
Especially since the weather has been very warm this weekend, I have opted for a t-shirt with a casual knit sweater on top! Perfect for over-eating Turkey and dessert!
On me: Divaceous sweater jacket, Levi’s jeans, Topshop t-shirt, Aldo booties
What are you thankful for this Holiday weekend? Let me know in the comments below!
There is nothing I love more then a classic white blouse. You can pair it with absolutely anything and dress it up or down.
The over size blouse is always flattering, and gives a fun ‘boyfriend’ feel. The blouse is an easy throw on when you’re feeling lazy, and allows your outfit to look classy even if you don’t feel that way.
The trend is huge right now, allowing you to dress it up with your accessories and make your jewellery the statement piece.
I also advise to wear a tight bottom, so it doesn’t look like you are just rolling out of bed or doing ‘the walk of shame’.
Also a tip, I make sure that the shirt looks worn, nothing is as uncomfortable as a starchy white dress top.
On me: Forever 21 blouse, Topshop jeans, Boohoo flats, Vintage Chanel purse, Ray Ban sunglasses
