My Obsession Monday: Velvet Knee High Boots

Happy #MyObsessionMonday!

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!

My Obsession Monday: Polka Dot Dress

My Obsession Monday - Zara Polka Dot Dress.jpg

Spring is finally here! I’m so excited for the warm weather, it’s been tough transitioning back into the cold weather ever since my Bali trip. You’re probably wondering why I haven’t shared any photos on my blog yet but I promise you they’re coming! This year has been hectic with work, weddings (I’m in 3!) and bachelorette trips – it’s making this year fun but leaving me with no time to blog.

Anyways, back to this polka dot dress. I absolutely love the look, it’s such a perfect transition piece. The viscose fabric is light and airy so you can layer it or wear the dress by itself. Since the weather is still chilly in Toronto, I’ve been pairing this with tights and boots while accessorizing it with a scarf for extra warmth. For when the weather warms up, I would wear this dress with a pair of light-coloured sandals and summer hat to break up the black. I’m going to be honest, I was skeptical at first about the polka dots as it’s not a print that I own but the cutting and flow of the dress sold me! I loved it even more when I tried the dress on.

Tights: Rachel’s Box – I got a chance to try a few pairs of tights from Rachel’s Box and I love the quality and fit. I wear these Black Sheer Tight the most, they’re sexy and comfortable. What’s also great about these tights is that you can get a subscription, first complete the style questionnaire as the tights are pre-selected based on your style and then choose the frequency of the delivery.

Shoes: Aldo – I bought these boots last year but these Aldo Jeffres Boots are very similar!

My Obsession Monday: Aldo Boots

Hi everyone!

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?
