TIGER & BOTTIES

European bloggers were all wearing tigers last year, and I really wanted a top like this, but couldn’t find it at any store in Montreal and it wasn’t yet a trend here. This year, the stores are overflowing with tiger sweaters & t-shirts. This tiger sweatshirt is cozy and can be dressed up when paired with a PU skirt or dressed down with jeans. Booties are hot this season and very comfortable. I have multiple booties in various hues, but that’s b/c they were a bargain or gifts for my b-day. If you own one black and one beige, you’re good to pair them with any outfit! Have a…

COLD WEATHER

Red, orange and yellow leafs have taken over Montreal. Fall is here & it’s time to bundle up! Wool is great for fall, especially when it starts getting really cool and a leather jacket just won’t do. This season, all colors have the green light, so if you like pop of colors, it’s definitely choice galore! However, the only thing is wool coats are usually pricey; therefore you’re better off choosing a neutral color that can easily translate from one year to another. That’s why I chose this belted heather grey coat from Zara last fall. I love the color…
