Arm candy is everywhere these days and I love it!!  I am a really big fan of piled on jewels but need to keep in mind that the look is not always office appropriate. Also beware of jingly jewelry in the workplace as it can sometimes be distracting. Therefore I usually don't go overboard on the bracelets for work, but simply add a couple of more classy pieces. Above are some great options for those who like silver or gold (or a mix of both). So start piling it on ladies and let me know which is your fave?

Lazy Sunday getup

(River Island top, Seven for all mankind jeans, MK mocassins and LV bag)
(Very comfy shoes!, great for walking)

This weekend was mostly spent relaxing and a great way to do so is by talking long walks.  Montreal has some great spots and one of my favorite is around the Lachine Canal.  It is absolutely gorgeous and  filled with beautiful green spaces.  I kept my outfit simple and just tied my hair in a low bun to really get that relaxed look.  Having to dress up for work really makes you want to be casual on the weekend:)  But that doesn't mean you need to be sloppy.  Some great options are leggings with a great chambay shirt or a simple and casual dress with some great flats.
What do your casual looks consist of?

Playing Favorites

New Specs from Oliver Peoples (Wacks model)

(Shoes that will be be in constant rotation for Fall)

New Shirt from Mink Pink

(Maison Scotch shirt with feather pattern)

This was both a lazy and healthy weekend, where I got to sleep in, exercise and just enjoy.  I have been working some pretty late hours as of late and really needed to start a healthy routine.  So to do that I went jogging along the canal close to the Atwater market, ate fresh vegetables from my garden and gave myself a facial.  I also did a little shopping where I bought 2 new shirts (see above), picked up my new nerdy chic eyeglasses and picked my favorite shoes to be worn this fall.

What was your long weekend like??

Fall Cravings

D G sheer top, $168
Tory Burch patchwork skirt, $395
Steve Madden hidden platform pumps, $110
Marc jacobs bag, $1,150
OTTO goth jewelry, $350
Karen Walker Eyewear tortoise sunglasses, $180

Its been a while since I last posted a virtual outfit and this one is calling my name for fall.  I am really loving these bow tie blouses and I have paired it with  a wool patterned skirt.  I would also need a pair of stacked heels like these from Steve Madden.  Overall for fall I just want cozy fabrics and warm neutral colors like grey and cognac for shoes and bags.

What is on your fall list?
