Overalls & Bell Sleeves (plus, a mini blog update!)

Dress: Zara | Top: Missguided | Shoes: Aldo (sold out – love these here and here) | Purse: H&M (not online – similar here) | Sunglasses: Shades Crush Okay, I never thought I would ever wear overalls again past 5th grade! And here I am loving this overall/dungaree dress trend hard. It’s such cute and easy trend that is seriously so fun to wear! I would have never thought wearing overalls would ever be considered stylish, but here we are, lol! I recently wore another overall dress here last week from Zara. Zara is just KILLING the dress game this season I swear! So basically I am an officially an overall girl and I think I like it lol! Also, there will be SO many good updates and blog posts here on BB over the next few weeks. If you follow me on IG you probably know how much I’ve been talking about my BIG SUPRISE. That should be announced next week! AND, I didn’t forget the second part of “How I Gained 20,000 REAL Followers in 6 Months“. That’ll be coming soon and if you missed the first part, definitely check it out here! I also want to apologize in advance for my super short blog posts! Because of my big announcement I’ve been crazy busy and haven’t had time to really sit and write a blog post! But I promise that announcement is exciting!! 🙂 xo Lauren

The Must Try Fall Trend for Every Girl!

  Top: Forever 21 (similar) | Jeans: Zara | Boots: Aldo (similar)| Purse: Forever 21 (similar) One of my favourite parts of being a fashion blogger is trying all the trends and making them my own! I’ve said this already this season, but daaaang the trends for Fall are GOOD! Sometimes trends are just so out there and not practical for every woman. But, this Fall so many trends are practical and fashionable. Which I just love! If you there is one trend you need to follow this Fall and Winter that trend is the sock booties and the belt! I mean, giiiirl, I love a thick black belt with gold hardware and a pair of jeans. It literally looks so effortlessly stylish. And it’s obviously so practical! If you have a little more dough to spend then me. Then you need to get this gorgeous Gucci logo belt here. I am looking forward to the day I can purchase this baby. But for now, this H&M belt does the trick! And if you are looking for another trend to try out this Fall. Then sock booties paired with cropped jeans is just sooo good! Like SO good! The belt I’m wearing above is under $10 (such a steal it’s so nice!) and these booties aren’t on the Aldo website so I’ve linked some other faves below. xo Lauren

Top 5 Faux Fur Coats

Jacket: Shein | Top: Saks Off 5th | Pants: Dynamite | Boots: Marc Fisher (sold out – similar) | Purse: H&M (similar) | Sunglasses: Shades Crush If I’m being honest, I absolutely hate the cold and the Winter! Between the snow and the freezing cold, it’s just not fun lol. Probably the only perk of the cold weather here in Toronto would be wearing really cute jackets! One jacket I always have on repeat every Winter is the faux fur jacket. And if you get it heavy enough, like the one I’m wearing, then it’ll literally take you through the whole Winter! Obviously, the fur faux is more of a fashion jacket and not meant for the bitter cold. But, it’s such a great option for date night or just over jeans and a pair of booties for running around the city! I’ve always been a fan of the faux fur jacket. And I’m pretty sure it’s one of the few things that get me through long Canadian Winters, lol!

Top 5 Overall Dresses for Fall! (all under $100)

Dress: Zara | Top: Forever 21 (similar here and here) | Boots: Marc Fisher | Purse: Aldo | Sunglasses: Shades Crush Anyone else feel like this Fall has so many good trends? I mean between the baker boy caps and bell sleeves I am just loving what this season’s trends have to offer! One trend I really wanted to try was the overall dress or the dungaree dress. Now, this trend has been around since Summer. But Fall just felt like the right time to jump on the bandwagon, if you will! One of my favourite things about the overall dress is how many ways you can style it! It’s so cute with bell sleeves under (my personal fave) or with a t-shirt. It’s such an easy trend to pull off for basically anyone. Plus, it looks so cute with over-the-knee boots or even with fresh white kicks! So many ways to style this little dress and so little time, cause it’s already freezing here in Toronto lol! Because I am loooooving this trend here are my top 5 overall dresses! Let me know which is your fave in the comments below. Top 5 Overall Dresses (all under $100): Zara Revolve (next on my list to buy!) ASOS H&M Shein xo Lauren

If you’re looking for the perfect casual Thanksgiving look to keep you warm and stylish, here it is! I love this burnt orange cardi paired with a off-white dress, like above, or even a pair of jeans and a tee. The tulle definitely dresses this cardigan up and it really does make the perfect holiday cardigan! Okay, so now for a little life update! Some of you may already know that I closed down my previous business. If you didn’t know, I used to own a children’s clothing store which had a physical location and was online as well. I had it for 5 years and it was time for a change, so don’t feel bad or say you’re sorry to hear! So many people keep telling me how sorry they are. But in reality, I am so ready for a change and to move on to new and exciting things. Because of my shop being closed down I am now working from home. What am I working on? Well, my blog for one. But I do have an opportunity that I am SO excited to share with you guys! Some of you may know about it already by reading my interview with Watchit Magazine. But if you don’t know yet. Don’t worry! I’ll be talking about it soon on the blog. And…

Top 5 Mom Jeans

Bodysuit | Jeans | Purse | Boots Happy Wednesday! I have really really recently (like in the past 3 or 4 months) gotten into wearing jeans. Before I started blogging you would literally never catch me in jeans! I guess you could say blogging pushed me outside of my style comfort zone and pushed me to try new styles. And I know that sounds silly for jeans. But, I could never find a pair of jeans I liked before. Now I am almost always in jeans. My go-to styles are the vintage high waist. And, of course, the mom jean. Now I know the mom jean isn’t for everyone, but if you haven’t tried a pair of mom jeans. Do it! They have loose styles and more fitted styles, like above. So that being said I’ve rounded up my favorite mom jeans for Fall/Winter. My preference is more tighter fitting mom jeans so you’ll find more of those below! 🙂 Top 5 Mom Jeans: ASOS Boohoo H&M TopShop ASOS xo Lauren

3 Fall Items You Need in Your Closet Right Now!

Top: H&M | Jeans: Zara | Boots: Aldo (similar) | Belt: H&M | Purse: Aldo Guys, if you’re anything like me, you like to always have go-to staples in your closet for each season. Go-to staples, in my opinion, make pulling outfits together easier! A few staples can help keep you trendy and give you an effortless vibe. And what girl doesn’t want to look effortless each and every day? I know I do! For me, I like to keep my staples affordable and neutral. That way, if it’s a trendy piece it won’t be hard to part with at the end of the season. And if it’s neutral, I’ll have so much more options to pair it with! These staples are key to great styling and will help you feel fab and pulled together for the rest of Fall! 3 Fall Items You Need in Your Closet Right Now: 1. Trendy item – A Corset Top / Faux Layer Blouse Firstly, let me start off saying any trendy piece will make do here. I am just naming what I am wearing above. But, if you’re not a fan of the corset or layered top. Then try bell sleeves like here or a chenille cardigan, like here, instead! Every season, I always try to have a few really trendy pieces to play with. I love having fun with fashion and there is nothing wrong with buying a couple of trendy pieces each season! My tip would be to always save…

Dress: H&M (under $100!) | Belt: H&M | Boots: Forever 21 | Bag: H&M (love this one here) If you were to ask me what I’d recommend for Holiday dress this season I would hands down say a velvet dress. Velvet is seriously huge this season. And if you haven’t added a velvet piece to your closet then, trust me, you need to add a velvet dress! They come in so many styles and colours. And they look so chic with booties or a pair of heels. I actually asked my Instagram fam to vote between this dress and another for a wedding I was going to. And the people spoke loud in clear making this dress the winner! I wore it last weekend with a pair of black pumps and out for date night with these booties. Velvet is the perfect option for basically any holiday party, date or Christmas card photos. I just can’t get enough! Oh and this one is a huge winner for me since it has long sleeves! I always love long sleeves for Fall and Winter dresses. Plus, it’s so warm and cozy! So this dress is a huge win in my books. If you’re looking for the perfect Holiday dress here is my top 5 velvet dresses for the Holiday season! Happy shopping!!
