Who doesn’t love a good crossbody bag? Friday by JW Pei has been creepin’ up on my Instagram for a few months and I finally went ahead and ordered a few items to see if the quality lived up to how the bags looked in pictures.
Friday by JW Pei is a sister brand of JW Pei and they offer vegan leather bags incorporating recycled plastic with sustainability in mind.
The first bag that caught my eye is their Camera Bag, which is, unfortunately, all sold out. Not sure if they’re bringing it back but I’ve always wanted a camera bag, just haven’t found one that fits both the price and look that I want until this. I love that this one has a pretty chevron stitching pattern. When I got it in the mail and tested out the bag, the zipper ran very smooth. The strap is detachable and adjustable in length which makes it very versatile. I also added the tassel ornament to the order so that it can add a bit more personality to the bag.

Fall is my favourite season – I get to wear boots and layer up while enjoying the cooler weather. I love looking for new boots to rock and this time around, I wanted a pair of statement boots.
What I really like about these blue velvet boots from Zara are that they have a really nice arch and heel shape. Those are usually the two things that I look for first. The blue colour is also very easy to pair with different outfit options so I’m looking forward to wearing it more throughout the season. This long weekend was the perfect weather to start wearing boots so I wore it out to my weekend day trip to the wineries!
Zara Over the Knee High Heel Boots in Blue Velvet ($99.90 – these boots are now marked as a “special price” item and is priced at $49.99!)
Here are some fall style inspiration pictures from Pinterest – love how these ladies are rocking their knee-high boots!

I went to the Vineland wineries for the first time and it was so stunning there! Angels Gate was my favourite out of the 3 that I went to. I’ve been wanting to expand my red wine appreciation and what better way than to do some wine tastings at all the wineries we have in Ontario. As I try the same type of wine at each of the wineries, I start to figure out which ones I like. At Angels Gate, I really enjoyed the Cabernet Merlot. It’s a great one to enjoy during the holidays!
All the wineries look stunning, very quaint and smaller in size compared to some of the ones from Niagara on the Lake (although those ones are impressive too!). The views are so beautiful. The second winery I went to was Tawse Winery. I LOVE rieslings and this one was so delicious, I picked up a bottle! The Gamay was also great too since they’re running low on the 2015 bottles, we thought it was great to pick up one of those as well.
The last stop was to Fieldings Estate Winery – such a beautiful place there. I love that you can sit out and overlook the vineyard while enjoying a cheese platter and some delicious wine. We didn’t have enough time to try the cheese but will definitely try it next time!
Hope you’re enjoying your Monday – thank you for reading!
Happy Monday everyone!
I’ve been looking for a petite, black going out bag that is functional for quite some time now. It seems like an easy task but when you are looking for a staple item that’s not going to be of style after one season, it’s worth taking the time to look for the right one. This Zara Split Suede Crossbody Wallet instantly caught my eye when I saw it online and I fell in love even more after seeing it in person! It comes in a second colour, a khaki green with gunmetal hardware but I knew I’d get more use with this one. The gold and black look so sexy together, especially with the large wristlet ring hardware. The design of this bag is so well done! See how you can wear it in two different ways.
I fell in LOVE with this bag from Banana Republic as I was double-tapping away on Instagram. My first reaction was that it looks like the Chloe Small Faye bag! I am currently saving up for a Celine bag so I don’t have the thoughts of purchasing another designer bag besides that one in the near future. This crossbody Italian Suede Accordion Bag from Banana Republic is a fraction of the price of the Chloe one and I love the look and colour of this. It’s such a great summer bag – it also fits quite a bit!
Happy Monday lovelies!
The sun’s out and it’s getting me excited about Spring! There may still be another month or so of winter jackets and Sorels, but it’s never too early to start looking at spring outfit inspiration! Am I right?
I love pieces that are great on their own and also versatile enough to transition from season to season. That is why I am obsessed with this Forever 21 Crinkled Surplice Romper in Olive for only $19.90! It comes in 3 colours – all neutrals! The peach colour may be a little too light for my complexion but I would definitely pick up the black one as well (if they restock)! The lightweight material makes it easy to layer pieces over and under the romper without making it feel too frumpy. I sported this piece with tights and tall boots at the Ever New Spring Preview (post will go up next week!) since it’s still a bit chilly but when it warms up, I’ll rock it with strappy sandals and open toe shoes!
Happy #MyObsessionMonday! Hope you all had an amazing weekend. I’m excited to share with you my most recent shoe obsession. Recently I bought these two Aldo suede boots and they’re perfect for the weather now in Toronto and also during the spring season as well. The Barra style looks a lot like the Stuart Weitzman Lowland boots (which I’m completely obsessed with but it’s also at a much higher price point). The Haskova is a really versatile boot for many different occasions and outfit looks! Which one would you rock?
Happy Monday! Everyone who knows me knows that I love jewellery so I wanted to share with you some ways that I like to layer necklaces together on today’s #MyObsessionMonday post. You can have so much fun with layering to create different looks and it can even dress up the simplest outfits. I put together 9 looks just for you – hope you like it!
