Hello, October!

October has a very special place in my heart and in my memories, as Annaliese and Abigail were born then.

I remember the first snow that occured in October 2013 was the day we brought Annaliese home from the hospital. And being able to introduce Abigail as a newborn to all our family and friends at Oktoberfest a couple years later.

Plus, it’s the best month for dressing in cute sweaters, scarves, and boots before you need to cover up with a winter coat (at least in Canada that is…).

I’ve linked some of my favourite fall accessories, as well as some that I recently put in my online shopping cart.

What are your favourite fall accessories?

Fall Colour Inspiration | Essie Wild Nudes Collection

Essie Wild Nudes Nail Polish Collection

Yay! It’s finally sweater weather!

Fall is my favourite weather because I’m already a 24 hour furnace. Though this week it was very rainy – which I joked to Matt that it doesn’t really rain in Edmonton, it just means it’s too warm to snow.

Speaking of fall, who else is loving the Essie Wild Nudes collection? The nail polishes surprised me because I loved them all, the purple and green are beautiful and don’t clash with multiple outfits.

I need nail polish colours that are versatile so I don’t want to change my nail polish every day. And these colours are perfect for that!

What are your favourite fall nail polish colours?

Fall, Where You At? | High Waist Jeans For Loving Your Post Partum Body

Loving Your Post Partum Body: How To Dress In The 4th Trimester

My body has gone through MANY changes over the past few weeks, and I love it for those amazing changes. Where my stomach used to be hard and tight from a little baby growing inside me – it is now squishy and tender and healing from the lack of child inside.

After my first was born I didn’t know I would need to wear my maternity clothes for at least a couple of months afterward… so when I tried a looser pair of jeans and they didn’t fit I was more than upset! But it was a good first lesson on loving my body, the clothes on my body did not matter.

No one else could tell or cared if I wore a nursing top and maternity pants. I was the ONLY one who knew, and my pride was eating away at being a new mom. So give yourself a break, take a breath, and love your body for the little miracle you produced! You’re a beautiful mama!

P.S. I have a feeling I didn’t share this last time I gave birth, but I like to bring a belly binder to the hospital with me to help my muscles and internal organs settle into their normal place. It amazes me how far your abdominal muscles stretch to accommodate the new baby inside!

Seeing Plaid | Woolrich Winter Coats

I’m trying to make sense of this unpredictable Edmonton weather: one day it’s +8, then next it’s -5 and snowing. That’s why I always bring my winter clothes out early and they stay out until May (my Edmontonians know the pain).

Coming home to this Woolrich package on my doorstep was the perfect start to this early Winter we’re experiencing. Wool coats are a must have in shady winters like this one – they can be layered for those really cold days. The tailored sleeves on this Buffalo Wool Coat have the option to fold up to a 3/4 length sleeve and reveal a light camel coloured lining.

I am obsessed with buffalo plaid. I told you I love mixing patterns – first it was plaid and stripes – now I’m diving into plaid and polka dots. Are you mad for plaid this fall/winter?

What Is The Difference Between Wool And Boiled Wool?

Never Heard Of Boiled Wool? Here Is The Difference Between Wool And Boiled Wool!

What is the difference between wool and boiled wool? First off, they’re both still wool but the boiled wool has been boiled (it’s really that simple). And by boiling the wool it shrinks so when it’s made into clothes it doesn’t let the wind in or your heat out – making it warmer than regular wool. I’ve always noticed how warm my wool coats are but they never can protect me from the wind, it goes straight through the coat.

 

 

So when you’re shopping for your wool coats, capes, vests, and ponchos this year look for boiled wool. It’ll be worth your while this winter!
