OOTD - Fall Weekend Routine


Wake up, lounge, coffee, flowers; this is what my weekend routine consists of.  Between working full time, blogging commitments and trying to find time for a social life weekends tend to be hectic. As busy as the weekends can be, as long as I stick to my tried-and-true weekend routine lineup then I feel content and refreshed. Flower runs when the weather gets colder means trading in my easy sundresses for some heavy knits and opaque stockings. This chunky sweater is so warm that I often wear it without a jacket! Paired with a simple black skirt and some dark tights and I'm ready to hit the flower market.






Sweater + Booties - Forever 21, Skirt - Aritzia, Bag - Marc by Marc Jacobs



My absolute favourite place to shop for flowers is at the corner of Avenue Rd and Bernard Avenue in Toronto.  There you will find a row of beautiful flower markets that are so colourful and plentiful that the product literally spills out into the front of each store, on the street. The selection is incredible, the prices reasonable and the service reliable - what more could you want?




It's nothing fancy, but as long as I stick to my weekend routine of lounging, coffee and flowers then I'm ready to face the week ahead.  Do you have a weekend routine that you try to stick with, no matter how crazy your schedule gets?  Let me know!
