Fall Transition with Quilted Dutch Blonde

Categories: Fashion

I don’t know about you, but after a couple months of cute summer dresses, I don’t really look forward to restrictive waistbands. Maybe that’s a little harsh towards pants, but I have a hard time saying goodbye to my favourite summer dresses and I need to transition back to pants gently. Leggings make the switch easier for me – they’re stretchy, versatile and super comfy. As soon as I saw these quilted Dutch Blonde leggings, I knew they would be my go-to fall pants.

Aren’t they fabulous?! Edgy, sexy and comfortable – the perfect fall leggings (that you can wear into winter too). Dutch Blonde leggings are high-waisted for comfort and never lose their fitted shape. I love their fashion-forward styles featuring unique prints and textures.

Summer to Fall Fashion & Beauty Transition

Categories: Fashion

When I made the switch from an iPhone to the new Samsung Galaxy S5 last month, it got me thinking about making the transition from summer to fall. Just like changing technologies, updating our wardrobe and beauty routine for a new season can feel overwhelming (especially when the seasons change as drastically as they do in Canada). On the bright side, it’s never as daunting a task as we anticipate. I had fun learning the many features of my new Samsung Galaxy S5, and I like to get creative with my style choices between seasons as well.
