FALL LOOKBOOK - ALL BLACK EDITION


Something a little different today. 

I had some fun styling a few black infused outfits with some of my favourite dark pieces for fall. A lot of the items are vintage finds so hopefully this will inspire you to go dig through your local thrift store for hidden gems!

Let me know if you enjoyed it!

Funny story that goes along with these pictures.  Originally we had planned to take these pictures near the river (just beyond the trail you see in the first picture).  But not far into our walk, we noticed rather large paw prints through the trail.  Very large paw prints. Not likely dog paws.  Since we were camping near the mountain and close to a river, we concluded they were bear prints!  SO scary! They were fresh, too! I couldn't get out of the forest fast enough! Getting a nice shot near the river wasn't going to be worth losing a limb!

Long story short, we ended up taking the pictures along the road.  A good distance from where the hungry bears might be, haha.

Purse - H&M (Similar HERE)
Shoes - Aldo (no longer available - Similar HERE and HERE)
Sunglasses - Forever 21 (similar)

When I spotted this kimono at forever 21 over the summer, I knew I had to have it.  I wasn't quite sure how I was going to wear it, but I knew it would be something that would come in handy whenever I needed to spice up an outfit in a hurry.  Because it is so neutral (both in colour and pattern) it works so easily with anything I already have on.  

Now I'm on the hunt for a similar piece that is a little more fall friendly.  The weather here in Vancouver is going to get chilly very quickly so I'll need something a little more substantial than this little kimono. Suggestions? Leave me links below if you have something in mind!

Well summer has officially come and gone.  It's currently pouring outside and I'm cuddled up on the couch with a warm drink and a blanket.  Quite the contrast to when we took these pictures.  

As much as I love summer and joke about wanting to move to a year round warm climate,  I really do love the change in seasons.  I'm getting excited to add layers to outfits and enjoy pumpkin spice lattes in front of the fireplace.
