Hey folks, can you believe the weather? What a gorgeous week in October! At this rate, we will definitely still be snow free by Halloween, which is always my cut-off for calling it a beautiful fall.
I definitely took advantage of this fair weather with my Fashion Friday post although the wind blew my hair and blazer all over the place, as you can see! I’m also very pleased that this week’s post includes three items bought at locally-owned stores. As I get older, supporting entrepreneurs and shopping local has become more and more important to me. I also love showcasing the amazing shopping we have right here in Winnipeg.
Blazer: Louise Bourgeois Black Label from The Style Bar
Blouse: Saie from The Style Bar
Necklace: Chapters (no longer available)
As you can see from the last few Fashion Friday posts, I mix and match items in my closet to come up with new combinations. I feel one great new piece can change up your wardrobe so you don’t need to buy a whole new closet each season. That’s how I feel about the blouse from The Style Bar. I love the muted floral pattern in neutral colours and the back is so fun with it’s peek-a-boo opening and large bow. It’s my favourite shirt for this season!
As my public service announcement, I urge you to get out and vote on Monday. So many people (especially young people) don’t vote and it is so important for everyone to exercise their democratic right to pick the government that leads our great nation. If you feel you don’t know who to vote for, educate yourself. Head over to Elections Canada and input your postal code. The website will tell you which candidates are running in your area. Google them and the leaders of the parties and see which platform aligns with your views on how you would like to see Canada progress as a country. Then, on Oct 19th, mark an ‘X’ next to your choice on the ballot. I promise, it feels pretty great!
