Fridays in Blue

Mulberry Fitzrovia bag; Talula navy blazer; J. Crew mirrored floral t-shirt

Blazer, Talula; jeans, Rachel Roy; t-shirt, J. Crew Factory; shoes, Tory Burch; bag, Mulberry

I wasn’t sure whether this outfit deserved its own post or not; I mean, it’s fine, but not exactly ground-breaking. Then I realized that this describes pretty much every other outfit I’ve ever put on the blog, so here it goes.

stuck on 3 (the watch, that is)

It’s a basic uniform-outfit, tweaked with a few sorta interesting details. Gosh, I still sound less than enthused about it, don’t I? I liked it, I really did. It’s fine. It’s fine, right? Fine. Yes.

Falling for the Season

Lilka knot dress; Lilka purple print dress

Dress, Lilka (thrifted); cardigan, Joe Fresh; scarf, consignment; boots, Josef Seibel; bag, MbMJ (via eBay)

Fall is not usually much of a season around these parts. There’s summer, then two weeks of rain, then a month or so of 5 degree weather, then snow. (For 5 months. In case you were wondering.) I guess you can call that fall. It’s nothing to write home a blog post about.

But.

This year, we’ve had a lovely fall. The leaves have been changing colour for a few weeks now (as opposed to 3 hours on an afternoon when no one is looking, the way it usually happens), the temperatures have been mild, and we’ve had some truly glorious, warm & sunny days. Basically, the kind of fall that’s perfect for fashun blogging. Layers? Knits? Scarves? Boots? (But, like, cute boots, not the ugly, practical kind.) Check, check, check, and check.

We took advantage of one of those beautiful fall days to check out the Edmonton Corn Maze. The maze itself was cool, if a little worse for wear (understandably so, as we visited towards the end of its season), but we didn’t get much time to enjoy it; I had to navigate us out of it in record time (26 minutes!) because Luka had earlier spotted the kids’ trampoline area and immediately lost all interest in everything else. In addition to the aforementioned kid magnet, there were a few other attractions on the grounds, including a mini-train, spud gun range, hay bale slide, and petting zoo. Worth a (quick) trip out of town if you’re looking for something to do with the kidlets on a warm fall day.

I don’t consider myself a fall fanatic (hey, I just had my first Pumpkin Spice Latte not that long ago), but I’m growing fonder of it with every sunny day we’re getting this October. How about you? What are you doing to take advantage of our glorious weather?

Another New Dress

Anthropologie Meadow Rue Batik dress

Dress, Anthropologie (via eBay); blazer, Talula (via Kijiji); necklace, J. Crew; shoes, J. Crew; bag, MbMJ (via eBay)

Can you handle it? There is always room for one more dress in my closet, in case you were wondering. This is definitely on the casual (and short) side for work, but I wore it on a busy Thursday when everyone was in get-it-done panic mode over a big project – so, basically, no one noticed. Probably. And I got to wear a pretty frock on a stressful day. Sometimes, it’s the little things, you guys.
