How to Wear Layers for Fall

Fall is upon us and it’s really cold outside. I don’t know where you live, but in Canada it feels like winter already. With the dropped temperatures it’s time for scarves, sweaters and boots. It’s time to layer up!  The only thing with layers is that, sometimes you get too hot, but I’d rather be hot than cold. You know what I’m saying?Today, I want to show you some really fashionable ways to wear layers.

For this look, I wore a nude coat over my outfit as a cape. It really made the outfit pop.  and incorporated colour into my all black ensemble. It made my outfit look really high fashion. A black coat would have made the outfit boring.

Under the coat, I wore a black blazer, this really provided a lot of warmth as I was only wearing a tank top underneath. The blazer was double breasted and it looked really smart on me.

I also wore a really thick grey scarf to keep out the cold from my neck. This I bought from H&M a year ago.

There are so many ways that you can layer up for fall. You can wear cardigans under your jacket, scarves, sweatshirts with an added shirt underneath, so many ways!

” You only shop at 3 stores in the mall, what?”, my brother asks in disbelief. Yes, I only shop at like 3 stores. I don’t know, I’m just hard to please. You know what I’m saying? It’s taken me a long time to figure out what I like, but I think I’ve finally found what I really like…. Keep Reading…

Everyone probably likes these stores but here they are….

1 Zara – Look Zara just gets me, or I get Zara? I don’t know but it’s my favourite store. I like that the pieces are so elegant and fashionable. Every time I wear something from Zara, I feel like I’m on the runway. I can find pieces for church, or a casual day out. I know some people have said that Zara is very expensive and yes some items are but you can find affordable items for 20$ and even less. You just gave to search.

2 Forever 21 – I like Forever 21 because they always have lots of different styles of jeans. Yes, jeans! I love jeans ok? I have like 20 pairs of jeans and most of them are from Forever21. They also have really cute summer clothes

Justfab – I love buying all my shoes from Justfab. They have so many styles!

I love these stores the most. They just have the types of clothes that I love to wear. Do I shop at other stores sometimes? Yes, but I always come back to these ones. They’re my favourite ok? Will I ever find new favourite stores, yes I just have to keep looking.

My blazer is from Forever 21, it’s really long so I wore it as a dress. I bought it about a year ago so they don’t have that olive colour anymore but they have it in cream. You can shop it Here

The Trend Report : Linen Styles

Linen is one of the biggest trends this season. In the past, I only thought of  linen as the clothing my Grandma wears on Sundays to Church. Remember those linen skirt suits that always got rumpled after sitting down? Remember those days? Haha, I feel so old. Continue reading….

Linen this season is very elevated and fresh. It’s not just about those skirt suits that your grandma used to wear. Now, there are linen vests, dresses and cute linen pants.

Linen is great for the summer. I love that linen is light and airy, it almost feels like you’re not wearing anything, which is something I live for. I just like to feel comfortable Ok?

I saw this dress in Winners a couple of weeks ago. I didn’t go into the store to buy clothes, I just wanted a beach towel, but then I saw this dress. I fell in love with it. When I looked at the rack, I only saw size small, so in my head I kept muttering, “God, please let my size be there” over and over. Look, I really wanted the dress OK? It was just so beautiful. There was only one on the rack, but I kept searching. I then said to myself, “Look on the other side”. Then I saw more sizes and I was so happy. I went to the changing room and I prayed that it would fit my upper chest, because I have huge boobs and it’s really hard to find cute stuff. that fit that part of my body. When I went into the changing room and  tried it on and saw that it fit I was so happy.

I like that this dress is a great example of how to wear modern linen. This dress can be worn with some nice heels and simple makeup. It didn’t crush that much. I really love this dress.

Linen isn’t just in neutral colours in 2018. There are bright coloured linen clothes and also dark colours as well like grey and black. I think linen is here to stay. What do you think?

What new trends are you trying this year? Have you ever worn linen before?
