As for my makeup, I did the majority of it myself and then had my friend Anna who is a makeup artist do my eyes.

My Shoot with @anabrauerr

Hey friends!

I recently did another photoshoot with one of my favourite photographers that I’ve used in the past, Ana Brauer. She really is amazing and if you’re in the Toronto Area I would highly recommend choosing her if you’re in need of a photographer. I really love the photos that she took and I wanted to share them with all of you! Here are some of my favourites!

My Three Fall Must-Haves – By Marisa Chiorello

Hey beautiful souls!

Fall is officially here! For me, that’s a reason to celebrate. Fall is one of my favourite seasons because the weather is beautiful and I can really express myself through fashion. To be honest, I love fall fashion more than any other season. I feel that the outfits I put together are so cute and versatile. So, I decided to put together some of my fall must-haves!

Fall Shoes

high heel booties

I love wearing Suede high heel booties during fall. I have a black pair, a brown pair, a maroon pair, and pattern pairs.  I love patterned pairs because they really make my outfits pop. Booties are really versatile; you can wear them with almost anything! I wear my high heel booties with tights and dresses, leggings, skirts, and skinny jeans. When you wear heel booties with jeans, it is essential that the jeans are tight around the ankle. That way, the fabric will be able to tuck directly into the boot. All in all, shoes can make or break an outfit, and high heel booties are definitely the fall shoes you should have in your closet!

 

Blouses

blouses

Many of my elegant blouses for fall are from Lauren Conrad’s clothing line, LC Lauren Conrad.  Yes, there are times when I’ll purchase items of clothing that are quite expensive, but recently I’ve found some beautiful pieces that are super affordable. Feminine blouses are perfect for fall because they can go with anything (jeans, dress pants, leggings, tights and skirts). They’re also perfect because they dress up your outfit, and they can make you look more modern and elegant. I also love how you can add layers to an elegant blouse with a blazer or jacket. My elegant blouses for fall consist of fall colours, patterns, and bows.

 

Sets

matching set

My last must-have for this fall season is matching sets! Matching sets are known as the chic on-the-go outfit, so they make getting dressed easy, especially if you really don’t know what to wear. I love matching sets with patterns like pinstripes.  I also love fall colours such as maroon, mustard yellow, and hues of browns. Crop top matching sets are the cutest! If you get chilly you can always pair it with a jacket. Many of my matching sets are either pant sets or skirts sets!

I hope you like my three fall must-haves! Let me know which ones you add to your wardrobe!

Until next time,

Marisa

What’s In Your Closet? – By CarrieJ

Hopefully, no skeletons!

Recently, I have been thinking about my closet and the colours I like to wear.

When I was about 10, my favourite colour was pink. Everything had to be pink. My dress was pink. My shoes and everything I could possibly own HAD to be pink! Then puberty hit and I changed my fun favourite colour to orange – that lasted for 2 years and until the hormonal surge finally subsided. Next, I liked yellow, and that lasted a good number of years. In fact, I still like yellow.

However, this August, I got the late Summer vibe. Have you been feeling the vibe? It has been a long time coming for me, but I finally felt it last week on a boat cruise. The days have been hot, but I also know that it gets pretty windy, and even cold on the lake, so I wore my coral dress sweater. It was then that I realized that I can’t seem to get enough dresses in coral, green and blue. Green reflects nicely on the water and has a calming effect. It was a beautiful day in my coral dress.

With the number of mentally unbalanced people increasing every single day, especially in Cosmopolitan centres like Toronto, maybe wearing green is not a bad idea too.

Nowadays, I find I have more greens, blues, whites, and corals than any other colour in my closet.

What’s in your closet? What colours have you been falling in love with?
