Autumn Sparkle

Autumn is a beautiful season where many changes occur.  The leaves change colours and fall off the trees, and girls go from wearing sundresses to cable-knit sweaters.  There’s something magical about the season, from the smells of the leaves to pumpkin spice lattes, and the anticipation before Christmas.  I tried to capture my love for this time of year with a look that is bright and whimsical.

My blush coloured dress is from H&M, my shoes, tights and sequined bolero are from Forever 21.  Pink is categorized as a spring colour, but I think I’ve found a way to make it look like a “winter pink”.  Add a fur coat and booties, and it’s good to go!

My accessories are an important part of the look.  I found this gorgeous bracelet from Forever 21 for a steal.  I love its 3D shape, and the contrast between the enamel petals and the rhinestones.  Not bad for a $10 piece!? My purse is one of my favourites from my collection, and is a vintage quilted crossbody bag from the 80s.

My hair was done up in massive ringlets to match the whimsical look.

This bolero features beautiful beadwork, and I love that it has both a glam and boho vibe.

Most of all, this outfit and the warm weather in Fall in Toronto this year makes me so happy… enough to survive through the winter months.
