Baby is Here! Bring on the Winter Coats and Layers

style

Let’s be honest; I had no idea how motherhood would impact my fashion choices… but it’s fair to say that unless we are expecting company (10 days into our journey with a newborn) I’m wearing the same thing he’s wearing: a diaper and no top.

So, here is a roundup of my favourite layering pieces for fall and the transition into winter!

The teddybear coat is definitely on trend, but I picked up one from Chance and Fate that is long and cozy, with just the right amount of cuddle. This color gray stands out from the rest of the sherpa coats we’re seeing this season. Mine is pretty much identical to the one pictured below:

Plaid Print Blazer $148 . OAK + FORT … not the warmest, but the plaid layer is still going strong! Alternately, try this beauty…

A classic utility jacket is the perfect layering piece for lighter chills and it has all the pockets a no-handbag wearing new-mom could ask for.

I have an amaaaazing coat similar to this, which I got at a clothing swap for freeeeee. It’s still a go-to! I am also a fan of layering my easy leopard print blazer over plain black to take the ‘lounging at home’ look to a slightly elevated, ready-for-visitors level.

H&M Down Jacket ($199) Last but not least, I invested this season in a puffer coat; try this one in charcoal, or (like I did) try the H&M army green calf-length version for maximum protection from the elements. I love how airy-light it is, while also being roomy enough to zip baby into the front while he is in a carrier.

Speaking of baby, here is our little fox. Thanks for bearing with me while I make this transition into the busiest, craziest job I’ve ever had. xo

Fall Outfits Day 1

style

Cannot tell you how long I've been waiting for the heatwave to break and for fall weather grace us with its presence. A friend brought home my family tartan from Scotland, and my leather jacket is a three-season staple that I'm very excited to see again. Fall is ripe for legging, comfy dress and boot combos. What are you wearing this fall?

Someone asked, do you actually wear all the outfit combos you post? Sure do!

Season Change

I can’t let go of my summer dresses. So, I won’t. I’ll pair them with boots, luxe leggings, faux fur, long sweaters and capes, to bring out the best in my summer staples and help them transition to fall. Like the leaves, they’ll get a new look.
