Faux…

Vest: Forever21 | Top: Anthropologie..not available (love this one and this one) | Bottoms: Topshop | Booties: Nordstrom | Watch: c/o Daniel Wellington

When I first found this faux fur vest from Forever21, I absolutely adored the length and the color of the “fur” – and of course the under $50 price tag! I am all about layering for fall, and a vest is the perfect addition to any outfit. It is so versatile! I have worn it with dresses, knit sweaters and of course a good old chambray. These faux leather leggings have also been a favorite of mine since purchasing them last year, and they too are a steal under $50! They are so comfortable and soft, and can easily be dressed up or down!

I was so happy to receive this gorgeous watch from Daniel Wellington. It is the perfect watch to pair with any outfit – the design is so dainty and sleek! They have such gorgeous watches – you must check them out! Use the code lovelyblondecloset for 15% off your purchase!

This weekend we are laying low mostly and also are bedroom furniture shopping! It is bittersweet redecorating a few of the rooms in our home – I just want our house to feel complete! We have a few projects ahead of us but this is the fun part! I hope you all had a beautiful week and can now enjoy the weekend! Thanks for reading.

Fall Basics

IMG_0956IMG_0943IMG_0945IMG_0962IMG_0951IMG_0983IMG_0977

Sweater: Forever21 | Jeans: Zara | Slip-ons: Steve Madden | Hat: Joe Fresh | Bag: Michael Kors (similar here) | Sunnies: Target

Today’s post is all about my favorite fall basics and the simple pieces that can be worn so many ways over both the fall and winter seasons! A basic knit sweater is a must in any wardrobe and this one is the perfect piece for layering. I can’t wait to put a chambray or plaid button down under, or wear a faux fur vest on top to change my look.

My next favorite basic are these ah-maaaze leopard slip-ons by Steve Madden. I had my eye on these for the last couple of months and since purchasing them, have hardly taken them off! These are a great neutral for any casual outfit! In Seattle I paired them with some faux leather tights, a big cozy sweater and a scarf for a day of shopping and I couldn’t have been more cozy and comfortable while still looking chic. What are some of your favorite basics for fall?

This beautiful location was in Stanley Park, right along the Seawall. We took a little family walk along here while on our trip. The beautiful old trees and piles of fall leaves were absolutely breathtaking! I will be posting some photos from our trip to Seattle and Vancouver on the blog this week. I added a few photos below of Addi and I on the same walk. As always I couldn’t resist matching with leopard shoes!

I hope you all have a great Monday!

Okay, first of all, I need to say sorry for being so MIA the last couple of weeks! It has been crazy around here and needless to say I had to put blogging on the back burner until things got a bit back to normal. My hubby was away (my photographer), and Addi and I were super sick. Then once he was home, we had some events for his work that have kept him/us busy the last week and a half. Plus, finally being home after 5 months away, has meant a ton a visiting with family and friends, it feels like every day we have been so busy! So I have been bad with keeping up with my blog! We also leave on vacation to Vancouver and Seattle tomorrow, which we are SO excited about.

In other news, I am absolutely adoring all of this sweater weather we have been having! It makes my life a lot easier just being able to throw on a cute sweater, jeans and booties and head out the door. I love the fall floral print on this sweater with the contrast of the grey knit from Pink Blush! I originally heard of Pink Blush when I was pregnant and was so happy with their adorable maternity clothing (as seen here) and I was happy to see they also have the cutest clothing for those not expecting as well! This sweater was just one of the many perfect items for fall on their site – and for all of my lucky readers, they are giving a discount promo code! Just use “LOVELYBLONDECLOSET15″ for 15% off of your purchase until October 17, so be sure to find some gems before then. I hope you all have had a wonderful week, thanks for reading!

Fall Uniform

IMG_9934IMG_9958IMG_9962IMG_9952IMG_9979IMG_9975IMG_9960

Sweater: Joefresh | Jeans: Zara | Scarf: Joefresh | Hat: Joefresh | Flats: Old Navy (old but love these and these) | Bag: Tory Burch (similar here)| Sunnies: Target

Well, yesterday was the first day of autumn and I couldn’t be happier! So of course I decided to share my “fall uniform”. A cozy knit, bulky plaid scarf, big hat and skinnies. This is my absolute favorite season for all the things you can do, as well as the beautiful changing leaves, but mostly for the fashion. I scored most of this look from Joefresh and found some great deals. I can’t wait to layer this sweater, and pair this hat with just about everything.

In other news, as some of you may have seen on my Instagram, I caught a nasty cold last week and it still is hangin’ around. The worst part of it all, is that Addi caught it t00 and has been so sad. She doesn’t understand why she cannot breathe through her nose, it is awful! Needless to say, we are sick little bugs over here and Joel is away until Saturday which means we have been lazing in bed together, and slowly unpacking our home after just moving back! I am hoping this bug leaves our home ASAP!

Also, for anyone interested, I did an interview a while back with the sweet and amazing Anabell from Pregnancy Perfect and answered a bunch of her questions about my pregnancy! It was such an honor to be asked to share my experience, and it was also so fun reflecting back on the whole journey. I’ve shared the links below for any of you who would like to listen!

I have been so MIA lately – so sorry! Joel has been working like crazy which has meant less blogging for me. We are on our way home today back to Calgary… for good! I am so beyond excited. So bear with me as we settle in, I may go missing again for a bit. But please know I appreciate each and every one of you for supporting me and following along. I do post more frequently on my Instagram, so be sure to be following along there!

There’s something about fall that makes you break out all of your plaid hiding in your closet (and for me there’s a whole lot of it). I love me some plaid! This boyfriend plaid button down was no exception – I love the looser fit, and can’t wait to layer it with thick, cozy sweaters for the upcoming months. I paired with my favorite distressed boyfriends – and added some heels because that always spices up any old outfit.

I hope you all had a wonderful week and will take the weekend to sit back, relax and enjoy yourself – I will be unpacking and reorganizing my house! Thanks for reading!
