Hello Loves! Is anyone else out there a huge fan of some classic fish & chips take-out? One of my favorite memories as a kid is driving out to Hout Bay to the Mariners Wharf to get fish & chips takeout, and sit on the deck overlooking the boats in the harbor! So now, whenever we get the chance we love having a little fish & chips picnic, even if it’s in the middle of the Prairies :)

We always go for the classic fish & chips combo from a cute little place called Gibson’s Fish & Chips in Saskatoon. They always prep their takeout packages in newspaper, tied together with a string. Absolutely love, love the authentic details! Not to mention, the food is amazing. Reminds me so much of being in London, stopping for fish & chips on the street after a long day of being “tourists” – which is another one of my favorite things to do. Mind you, I love being a tourist in my home countries as well. Life is absolutely more fun that way! What are some of your favorite memories? <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

Hello Lovelies! It’s the weekend, and today on the blog I’m sharing one of my all-time favorite summer go-to’s… a perfectly chilled glass of Chateau Souverain Rosé! The story of Chateau Souverain begins with their founder, J. Leland “Lee” Stewart, who harvested his first crop of grapes from Howell Mountain vineyard in Napa Valley in 1944. Stewart used innovation and incredible standards along with his natural gift for winemaking to establish Souverain as one of the great wineries in California.

This summer they launched a brand new addition to their wines; introducing the Chateau Souverain Rosé, perfect for warm summer days and afternoons on the deck. Since the seasons are changing, I have pulled out the long sleeve and a cozy blanket to enjoy with a glass of rosé instead :) Whether it’s a spread of cheese and crackers, a bowl of fruit, or perhaps some s’mores by the fire, there is always a fun weekend occasion for the tastes of Napa Valley wines. What are some of your favorite summer memories? <3

Hello Lovelies! If you’re anything like me, then giving those summer dresses is the hardest part of the changing seasons. There’s nothing easier than a fun little dress and a pair of sandals to simplify your staple wardrobe. So in order to hang on a little longer, a light-weight fall jacket is an absolute must! It’s a great way to style a dress while staying a little bit warmer.

This khaki green fall jacket from Club Monaco is one of my favorites right now. The sleeves are 3/4, which is great for those warmer fall days while still keeping the cold out! Overall, this has been a go-to outfit for me lately. It’s perfect for a relaxed lunch date, paired with some sandals. Or you can dress it up with a pair of heel booties to kick it up a notch! Either way, it is a simple wardrobe staple and a great way to transition into fall. What are some of your favorite trends going into the new season? <3

Hello lovelies! Cannot believe how quickly fall has crept up on us. Feels like just yesterday we were sitting on patios, soaking up the sun and enjoying that summer-daze bliss. No matter how much you enjoy it, there’s always a cool breeze around the corner. But I have to say, Fall is beautiful! I absolutely love the colors, the cozy sweaters and warm drinks. Plus, we get to pull out all the cute accessories.

Today I’m excited to share my brand new watch from Medium Watch Co. They are a close knit, down to earth, group of friends who live (and play!) in the Rocky Mountains. A while ago they launched their company with the motivation to share affordable, top quality, minimalistic watches with amazing people who like to share their individuality. As a brand new Medium Ambassador I am going to be sharing a mini series of posts introducing and styling my gorgeous timepiece! There are a ton of different watches in their collections. My favorite pick is the Rose gold watch with a white face and a brown leather strap. The color is perfect for fall and I’m loving the leather detail look with the warm cozy sweater.

With the new season’s arrival, Medium Watch Co. is offering $25 off all of their timepieces as a special treat to my lovely readers. All you have to do is use the code “thecarlivh25” at checkout to receive $25 off of your purchase. There are so many amazing choices!
