Hello lovelies! Coming to you from the most beautiful fall season ever! Which means it’s time for those over the knee boots, and cute long-sleeve dresses. Also, since it’s officially Watch Wednesday :) I thought I’d share a little post on styling the Rose Gold Debut Watch from Medium Watches. It is the perfect fall accessory, and goes so well dressed up or even with a cozy sweater. This time I paired the Debut White with the rose gold mesh straps, which are great for dressing up your look for date night!

The rose gold features are a great accent to all the fall colors around, and perfectly pops with this Halogen long-sleeve dress from Nordstrom. The neutral black Kate Spade cross-body purse doesn’t overpower the look, and allows it all to come together. When you want to style up the watch, don’t be scared to add a little extra bracelet or fine chain to accompany it. This is another great way to change it up and get a bit of a different look styled. The rose gold is definitely timeless, and I love having it in my fall wardrobe this year! What is your favorite watch this season? <3

Hello Lovelies! Hope you are all having a wonderful Tuesday :) Today on the blog I am sharing all about one of my favorite lunch spots right here in our beautiful city of Calgary. We love trying new places and whenever we find a good one I absolutely have to share it with you all! This particular place is called River Café Restaurant, and it is actually located in Prince’s Island Park. Um.. beautiful location alert!! We always stop over in Eau Claire Village and take a nice walk down to the park before popping in for a lunch.

This time we went with the whole fam, and even though it was super chilly out the sun shining in through the big glass windows kept it nice and cozy inside. Their menu is always centered around Seasonal Canadian Cuisine, with a focus on honoring simple, quality ingredients. They are a locally sourced restaurant, with all their breads and desserts made in-house, daily. Their Highwood Crossing Rye Sourdough bread is absolutely amazing!

Around our table we enjoyed the Dry Aged Duck, the TK Ranch grass-fed beef burger, and a deliciously warm pot pie. More than that, we just had a fabulous time talking about our plans for travel, the new season, and just enjoying the sunshine while it’s out! Great food and great people.. what else could a girl want? :) What are some of your favorite spots to visit in Calgary? <3

Hello Lovelies, and happy October to you all! Fall is absolutely beautiful right now, with all the gorgeous sunset-colored leaves. My absolute favorite are the deep, bright red ones – amazing! I love getting out of the house on these days (before the dreadful cold hits!!) even if it’s just for a short walk by the river, taking the dog around the block, or just stopping at one of the parks.

My mum and I had such a fun little walk in the park the other day. Not too hot, not too cold, so I threw on a fun 3/4 sleeve knit, my cute Steve Madden booties, plus my new favorite rose gold watch from Medium Watches (stay tuned for a full post coming soon!) and my trusty old leather jacket. Although, it was probably still too hot to whip out that baby – ambitious, but not necessary :) I know I shouldn’t jinx it, and should just enjoy the weather while it’s here. But remember, it’s always about being grateful for the time you do have in the seasons that you love! What are your favorite moments to cherish this Fall? <3

Hello babes! Happy Wednesday to you all :) Today on the blog is officially Wine-Wednesday! Recently we had the chance to try some amazing French wines especially sourced by Flying Wines right here in Calgary. Born and raised in the South of France, educated with the love of their country, Flying Wines wants to share their roots with all of us. They are passionate about their winemaker’s work and excited to introduce a little taste of France to Calgary.

Absolutely love being able to branch out and try new wines, and my new favorite is this Mâcon-Chaintré Chardonnay, which we got to try paired with a lemon poppy seed macaron. Just divine, and perfectly fresh for a fall afternoon! We took it along for a backyard birthday party, so I thought I’d share this fun, casual yet dressy look with you all on the blog today. Definitely crushing on this sea-green silk tank from H&M, paired with my favorite white jeans and my leather cross-body bag from Fossil. Check out all the links below to shop the look, and let me know in the comments some of your favorite new things to try in the city? <3

Happy Monday lovelies!:) What a lovely weekend it was. The most gorgeous days, although cold, it was filled with sunshine and a lot of golf! On top of that, one of my other favorite things for fall are cute kimono’s. So let’s take a second to talk about this lovely blue one! It’s perfect to throw on over a cool top to keep out the chilly air.

This is an absolutely gorgeous one from Due South that I got for my birthday from my lovely family. My favorite styling option is to throw it over this white tank from Express Clothing and a pair of distressed jeans and a dainty necklace from H&M. Of course I round it off with my Tory Burch Sandals and Kate Spade cross-body purse (which I love!). It was such a beautiful day on this shoot! The sun shining through the trees, before they even started losing any of their leaves. I absolutely love stocking up on summer staples this time of year, when all the sales are in full swing! What are some of your favorite end of summer traditions? <3
