Winter Inspired White

Babes, we’re officially bracing winter here in Toronto – personally, right now I am loving it – but that may become a different story after a few weeks. I am absolutely LOVING a crisp, white wardrobe for winter, paired with fur and vintage pieces – I cannot get enough! Let me know down in the comments what pieces you babes absolutely need in your winter wardrobe!Winter Inspired White

Babe of the Week: Nicola Peltz

She’s young, beautiful, and quickly on her way to becoming a Hollywood mega-star – Nicola Peltz is Beauty + Babes second babe of the week! I first noticed the gorgeous Nicola about a year ago when she starred on the A & E network television show, Bates Motel  (which by the way is super creepy and if you haven’t checked it out, I recommend you give it a peek). I remember thinking that she was amazingly beautiful (which is completely obvious) and that she also had a unique look to her – she doesn’t look cookie cutter and she brings her own look and vibe to the table. Although she’s super young – she’s only 19 – she carries herself with class and she is beginning to build her own distinct style.

Luxe Leather Lovin’

This morning was a gorgeous one in Toronto, especially for the beginning of October – sunny, warm, with a light cool breeze. However, that beautiful morning quickly turned into an afternoon full of rain and wind – a smack in the face reminder that summer has, unfortunately, dearly departed (until next year!). My last post touched upon fall tops and knitwear staples that should definitely find their way into your closet…but my darlings we all know that we can’t be the fashionista’s we are without covering our lower halves! I am definitely digging the leather trouser and legging trend…to me it is the perfect mix of sexiness and functionality. These absolutely need to part of your wardrobe this season! You can really dress them up or down, depending on your mood or the event you’re attending. They look great with pretty much any type of boots or heels – I know I personally have my eye on the fabulous studded Valentino slingbacks…

Top Picks: Building a Fall Wardrobe

Fall is finally here (!), and sadly, the weather turns chilly and the days become more dreary. BUT – not all is lost! For me personally, fall is one of my most favourite times of the year – enjoying brisk walks outside admiring the leaves changing colors, apple picking at a farm outside of the city, visiting local farmers market to scope out the fall selection – and of course, autumn is a perfect opportunity to update your wardrobe! Here are my picks for the best autumn tops/knitwear to tide you over until it’s time to start building the dreaded winter wardrobe…
