OOTD - Jewel Tones + Thigh Highs


Oh Canada - although I am glad that we get to experience all four seasons, I wish there was a bit of a buffer period between each.  Seriously, Toronto's temperatures dropped more than 10 degrees over the course of a day and my poor acclimatized body has been struggling to keep up!  Luckily I've already stocked up on two cooler weather essentials for Fall - over the knee boots and cozy blanket scarves. I'm pleasantly surprised by how great a thigh high boot is in the colder temperatures, and there's definitely no beating the cozy-factor of an oversized fleece scarf. With these two items I could afford to wear a shorter jewelled tone skirt and sweater sans jacket. The weather may be leaving no wiggle room between seasons, but that doesn't mean I can't have fun transitioning slowly with my wardrobe.





Boots + Scarf - Zara, Skirt - H&M, Sweater, Banana Republic
Bag - 3.1 Phillip Lim, Rings - Bling Jewelry






I've turned into quite the accessory lover over the years, and lately I'm having a love affair with dainty rings. I love how a few thin rings worn on one hand can be the tiniest detail of an outfit, but add so much interest. The beauties are from Bling Jewelry, and they're from my second order placed from the store! I love their selection, the reasonable prices and the fact that they're different from what I'm used to seeing day-in, day-out on my Instagram feed.


Smile - like it or not it's cold outside, but I'm not letting the cold weather bring me down.  Thigh highs and blanket scarves make this girl happy, and ready for whatever other curveballs Mother Nature has our way.  Are there any particular items that you lean on in the frigid temperatures that make you feel great and keep warm?  Let me know!
