What I'm Loving Lately + Fall Favourites

Wearing: Coatigan and Skinny Jeans: Banana Republic - Adidas: Aritzia  - Bracelet: Daniel Wellington

Hey November!

So Fall seems to have hit Toronto fast and furious this year. The colours on the trees have peaked and it never fails to amaze me at how beautiful it is. It's kind of like the first snowfall of each year - it's beautiful each time.

If you've been following me on Instagram for a while, you've noticed how much I love Summer (you thought I was going to say Fall, right?). Nope, I'm a Summer girl at heart and that will never change but if there's one thing I absolutely love about Fall, is the fashion. From textures to rich colours, I honestly think there's nothing like Fall fashion. So instead of focusing on the fact that days are shorter and it now feels like bedtime by 5pm, I'd rather look at the brighter side of things and enjoy the sweeter things that this beautiful season also brings us!

I've rounded up a few of my favourite styles and products that I've been loving this Fall. Everything from my favourite moisturizer to my favourite teddy bear coat, and everything in between!


If there's one thing that I can't live without is face moisturizer. It doesn't matter if it's a no makeup day or a BB cream kind of day, moisturizer is a must. If you live in colder cities like Toronto, it's usually necessary to switch to richer cream for the Fall and Winter months. During the summer months, I use Biotherm Aquasource and then switch to the richer, Estee Lauder Hydrationist. It goes on smoothly and I love that it keeps my skin hydrated all day.


I'm a pretty low maintenance girl when it comes to makeup so a lip stain is right up my alley when I want an extra pop of colour. These are three of my top picks for the Fall. The three of them can be found at Sephora.

Teddy Bear Coats:

Whether you're looking for a long or short one, a pink or camel tone teddy bear coat, you can find them everywhere this season. Not only does this offer you lots of choices in colour and styles but also different price points! I've seen them as low as $15 and as high as a couple of if you're just trying out this trend, there's no need to spend a ton on one if you aren't yet sure you love it! Other great stores for teddy bear coats: Urban Outfitters, Free People, Gap, JCrew, and Banana Republic. Currently in my closet: the Aritzia Grete coat and Topshop teddy bear coat.

OTK Boots:

I have two go-to pairs that I absolutely love. My favourite ones are the Stuart Weitzman highland boots. I have shared in the past that I wish I had gotten the lowlands as I think I would get more use out of them because I'm more of a flat shoes kinda girl but nonetheless, I adore these boots. If you're interested in making the investment on these beautiful boots, read my review here before you do!

Saje Diffuser + Oils

This one has been on my wish list forever and this week, I finally purchased the Aroma Om from Saje. There's nothing like coming home to a cozy atmosphere in the Fall and this diffuser makes your place smell amazing. I started off with the scent 'Goddess' because I wanted a great, everyday scent for my home but as we enter the holiday season, I think I'll also begin using the Peppermint Twist. I love scents but I'm the type of person that prefers cleaner and fresher scents rather than stronger, floral ones so I'll keep you guys posted!
