There are many trends for this upcoming Fall season but this is the last one of my Fall Trends posts! I say “upcoming” because it hasn’t quite started, even though the first official day of Fall is 2 days away. The weather has definitely started to change. When I’m getting dressed for work in the morning (which is at like 6am) it’s cold & cloudy but by mid afternoon it becomes warm & sunny. What the heck?! Oh right, this is Vancouver.
A trend that I love for Fall are pretty jewel tones like Teal & Berry/Oxblood! I actually just purchased a teal blouse & a berry long sleeve midi dress from H&M (on a side note, I’m become slightly obsessed with dresses & skirts in a midi length). It also happens that teal is one of my favourite colours – my #1 fav is purple. These colours are the perfect way to add that pop of colour to your Fall wardrobe which usually consists of neutrals like black, cognac & creme. They can also be worn all year round which is a great reason to pick up something in one of these fabulous colours!
Early in the year I saw a top H&M that had short leather sleeves and I instantly fell in love! (Obviously I bought it – it even had a peplum!) Since then I’ve become slightly obsessed with any kind of leather details and have been lusting for a sweater with full (faux) leather sleeves. Now that we’re heading into fall I’m hoping I can find this garment I’ve been dreaming of. To add to the leather-detailed items in my closet, I recently purchased the t-shirt I’m wearing from Forever 21! The fact that it’s also in one of my favourite shades of green made it even more of a must have.
Also these booties are my absolute fav! I was on the hunt for a black pair for quite some time with no such luck when I happened to find a pair at Aldo. They were sold out in stores but were still available online so I hit “add to cart” and finalized my purchase. However, a few days later I got an email saying there was an error and they actually no longer had my size in stock so I was back at square one. Then while returning to my online perusing I discovered this pair from Call It Spring and knew immediately I had to have them; the sliver of gold on the heel made them that much better. I’ve worn them so much that they’ve gotten pretty beat up & it’s tempting to buy a replacement pair since they’re now on sale! And because I’m on my feet all day at work I don’t wear high heels so I like to wear booties as comfortable substitute.
