And it’s almost the weekend! In Canada, we just had Thanksgiving on Monday, so with the long weekend, comes a short week 🙂 As you know, I’m not originally from Toronto, so I usually head home to Winnipeg for the Thanksgiving weekend. This year, I am seeing my parents and siblings this upcoming weekend in Kelowna for my cousins wedding, so for Thanksgiving we stayed in Ontario and went up north to cottage country instead. I definitely over did it in the eating department (the apple pie was SO good) but always worth it. It’s such a beautiful time of the year at the cottage, and we seriously could not have had better weather! I am loving this perfect fall weather, with the crisp air and warm sun – it makes for fall fashion that much more enjoyable!
The great thing about this time of the year for fashion is all the layering and textures. It’s so nice to be able to throw on a big chunky knit, and not sweat to death. I have been loving skirts right now because they you can add a pair of boots or booties, and still keep your legs bare!
This faux leather ruffle skirt from Nordstrom is the perfect skirt for fall, and one that anyone can add to their wardrobe. While I normally gravitate toward black, especially as the temps drop, I loved the warm brown tone of this leather ruffle skirt. The great thing about this ruffle skirt is that because it’s faux leather, the cost is also so reasonable – like $50 reasonable! I paired it with a blue pinstriped button-up shirt from J.Crew to keep it more casual – I also love blues and browns together. I added my new favourite Zara booties as it still gets pretty warm during the day, so I prefer booties over boots (*note – Zara has the BEST boots & booties right now for such great prices!). For the Winter months, I will definitely wear this faux leather ruffle skirt with a big chunky black knit, some patterned tights and over the knee boots!
