Mean Mr. Mustard 

mustard-fall-fashion-trend-collage
Without a doubt, my favorite season for fashion is fall. The layers, the chunky knits, the boots – I love it all. But most of all, I love the colours. Moody merlot, inky cobalt, burnt orange and earthy olive are a few hues that I love to wear this time of year. But my favorite fall shade? Mustard. Bright and bold with a 70s feel, this condiment-inspired colour adds a playful twist to everything from loafers and trousers to sweaters, handbags and even nail polish. Wallflowers, don’t immediately shun this shade – even though this is a loud hue, it works well as a neutral, so don’t be afraid to mix it with other strong colours such as plum, red or bright blue. Don’t be shy! Say it with me – more mustard please! Scroll on for a few of my must-have mustard pieces.

My Favorite Accessory For Fall

The easiest way to dress up any outfit is with the addition of a silk scarf. The classic knot around the neck is always stylish, but it’s also fun to get creative with other options. Tie your scarf around your bag, wear it as a belt or wrap it around your hair for an Old-Hollywood-inspired retro look. I love to collect vintage scarves and I find that even if I’m wearing a hum-drum jeans and t-shirt combo, a scarf lends an elegance and je ne sais quoi that feels very french and oh-so-chic. Here are a few gorgeous printed scarves that I would love to wear with everything this fall! Some are pricey, some are a bargain, but all of them are delightful AF.

Jump On It

Jumpsuit-Streetstyle-Collage
One and done. That’s my go-to formula for summer dressing. When the temperature rises the last thing any of us want to do is put on any layers or think too hard about our outfits. Getting dressed should be a simple affair and sometimes putting on a shirt and shorts feels like way too much effort. Enter the jumpsuit. You step in, you step out. Wam bam thank you ma’am. So in preparation for the upcoming season, I’ve rounded up 8 jumpsuits that I, quite frankly, need in my closet. Enjoy.

Embroidery x Denim


Embroidered denim is having a major moment right now. But before you go ahead and scoff, this isn’t the kind of embroidery your granny stitches onto handkerchiefs. Instead, the coolest motifs of the season are anything but prim and proper. Sure, the usual florals are there (classics are classics for a reason), but so are edgy evil eyes, emojis, snakes, tigers, and cheeky slogans. Whether you prefer skinnies or flares, one thing we can all agree on is that embroidery and denim are a match made in fashion heaven. This trend isn’t limited to jeans, however, and intricately stitched designs are popping up on denim dresses, skirts, bags, and shoes. So it’s official: embroidery and denim are this seasons It pairing. Let’s hope they stay together forever.

All Patched Up

With Fall creeping just around the corner, I have been keeping an eye on the upcoming season’s trends and have been perusing through street-style shots and the latest designer collections. Much to my delight, patchwork has been a common thread through many of the collections for Fall.  Distressed, deconstructed styles made from denim and kitschy quilted garments have dominated the runways for designers such as Moschino and Christopher Kane. It pays homage to the 70s obsession that is currently going on within the fashion industry, but it’s still fresh and modern. And it’s eco-friendly! You know what to do with those worn out pieces that you are no longer feeling. I love patchwork because it is incredibly versatile. It can be subtle and sophisticated in office-appropriate muted colours (think a champagne silk blouse and tan leather patchwork pencil skirt) or loud and boisterous in 80s-inspired neon hues. I especially love the idea of pairing a chunky, oversized patchwork sweater with patched denim and suede ankle boots. It’s Raggedy Ann meets runway couture. Hello Fall, you may make your entrance now.
