Horses Atelier F/W

Ahh! So excited for a new collection from my favourite Toronto label, Horses Atelier. I've had amazing luck with their pieces in the past, and these looks are so on point for me right now. I'm really feeling this mix of emerald green and aqua on a black background, with some strong textures thrown in for extra oomph!

Joseph F/W

Before I immigrated to Canada (more than 13 years ago now!) I splurged at Brown Thomas on a really basic Joseph top. Charcoal, scoop neck and long-sleeve, it was perfect for layering. That top is proof positive that sometimes a "splurge" turns out to be a saving, because it's still in my closet today and I still wear it beneath sweaters and dresses - very much as I imagined wearing it when I bought it.

When I moved to Canada, I was sad Joseph didn't have much a presence here. It had always been one of those brands that I felt was realistically aspired to. But, in recent years, the brand has had a resurgence that's put it back on my radar. And it's interesting how loyal I still am because of that one top and because of the way I used to run my hands over pieces I couldn't afford when I was in university.

Their fall collection is full of beautiful enveloping knits, shearling vests and clean tailoring that just makes me feel warm and cocoon-y just looking at them in a way that feels ultimately luxurious.

Rue Mag / Meagan Donegan

I love this home belonging to Heidi Caillier, spotted in Rue Magazine. But what caught my eye most was the gorgeous artwork in the bedroom by Meagan Donegan.

Love that sheep! Over on Meagan's portfolio, I found a lot more to love.

Sunday best: Early fall thoughts

I know, I know... don't be wishing away what remains of summer! But, fashion-wise fall is my favourite season and, on Friday when the temperature dropped a little, I got lured into browsing the shops for the season ahead. And it's a good 'un. I love all the suede and shearling (real or faux - your choice!), classic blue jeans, epic hats and those rich autumnal knits in shades of mustard and burgundy and all manner of grey.

I have to give kudos to Loeffler Randall this season too. This label has always been good to me for purses right in that perfect price sweetspot, and this season they've spoiled me for choice of pieces that I know would last and last.
