Woodland Euphoria

Autumn is currently in its prime, the colors are vibrant and breathtaking, the air is comfortably cool and the sky resembles something from a horror movie. We've literally had rain every day for two weeks now, and I'm loving it.There's something I find comforting about autumn weather, I'm outdoors more this time of year than I am in the summer!
I'm looking forward to this week, I start my new job, my secret project is coming along, and hopefully I can fit one or two forest adentures in there! It's a funny thing, I always get comments on the way I'm dressed outdoors (I rarely wear pants, I've just always prefered dresses and skirts) and somehow, becuase of this, they think I hate the outdoors, or that I don't belong. Truthfully, I don't care about "getting my dress dirty", what are clothes for if not to live in them? Self expression of course, but how can we express ourselves properly if we let the things we wear limit our activities? Or our activities limit the way we want to dress? Why CAN'T we have it all? I've literally hiked and climbed mountains in my dresses and tights, it's honestly no harder and certainly no more uncomfortable (at least for me, as I am one of "those" who actually find pants too confining and uncomfortable) than wearing pants or shorts. Dresses are great because of how decieving they are...they give the appearance of effort, meanwhile it takes much less to simply throw on one piece of clothing which allows for full body/leg movement. I guess the point I'm trying to make is, not to make assumptions of people based on they choose to look while they live thier own lives. We're all different and comfortable in different environments, clothes, etc. Okay, rant over, Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all have a lovely week ^.^

The studio

Since I've made the official move to Ottawa, I've been spending most of my free time discovering new places, I typically share my outdoor adventures on here, but I've been finding the most interesting spaces around the city. This one in particular I'd mentioned when working with Brittany, this coffee shop called The studio , which is a unique space dedicated towards creativity and good coffee. Basically, it's my dream space. The entire caffee acts as an art gallery as well as a creative working space, in fact they even have art classes and host events in the caffee as well.
I encourage you all to check out thier website and if you happen to be in Ottawa, defnitely pay a visit! The atmosphere is completely inviting and's truly impossible to sit in this caffee and not be inpsired! Thier slogan is "sip, ponder, create." A perfect compilation of words to describe this place!
I definitely plan on sharing more of the exciting places I've been coming across!
I hope you all enjoyed your weekend!

eyelash lace

There is something about white lace that I aways find matter how many pieces I aquire, I always fall in love with the next one I see. This eyelash lace slip from Urban Outfitters was certainly no exception. I've been wearing it non-stop, finding it one of the funnest pieces to play with, it can be layered and worn in so many ways! I couldn't resist pairing it with this cozy orange cardigan from UO as well. The colors compliment eachother greatly, and it is a perfect match for fall! Over the past weekend I went home to spend Thanksgiving with my family. It was really lovely having the whole family together (we're quite a large family, so it only happens a couple of times a year), eat some amazing food and enjoy the autumn weather! Not to mention, it is a time in which we reflect and count our blessings, which we have so many. It can be so easy to forget, when we're caught up in life, how beautiful the world is, and how much we really have to be thankful for. Every year it's always the same thing that stands out to me--the lovely people I have in my is always what I'm most thankful for.

It's that time again! You know, when I accidently stumble upon a great shop and can't help but share with you all! MISS REBEL is an online shop which carries a variety of stylish and unique clothing for cheap price! I've been eyeing a couple of thier autumn pieces for a while now, and thought I'd share with you all!

1. The Top Left is a photo of THIS gorgeous faux fur coat. I'm assembling quite the collection of fuzzy sweaters and coats, and my fall collection cannot be complete without this black beauty.
2. Beside it is THIS classic structured bag, big enough to fit my books and camera in, yet subtle and classic enough to pair with any outfit!
3.Although I've never been one to gravitate much towards animal prints, I find that to be slowly changing. There's something about THIS leopard skirt which I find absolutely darling! I would love to pair it with a warm pair of knee socks and chelsea boots!
4. THIS black bralet does not only fit perfectly with the outfit I've demonstrated here, but can be virtually layered and worn with anything in any season! We all need that perfect go-to top to grab when we just can't figure out what to wear.
Miss Rebel is full of eye-catching, a la mode pieces! I strongly recomend you check them out. You can click HERE to do so ^.^
Have a great Sunday!

cookie monster sweater

Any coffee addicts in the house? It's actually quite odd that I haven't mention my own coffee addiction on here, however, if you are following me on instagram, then I am sure you are acutely aware...So naturally when I saw this tote bag and it's simple inspirational quote: "you can do it" -coffee.  It practically jumped into my hands, along with the coziest sweater ever (yes I am aware it resembles the cookie monster, it was the base of its appeal for me). Both items are from forever21, and I paired these items with this hat and gorgeous eyelash slip from Urban Outfitters
It is thankgiving weekend here in Canada and I am home spending it with family and enjoying the time off! We rarely get the whole family in one place yet somehow managed it this weekend and it's been great. I hope you're all enjoying the weekend!
