Fall Fashion: Merino & Velvet

Shop Frank + Oak Women

Somehow I doubt that Frank + Oak had the following photos in mind when they sent me this dress, but it’s literally a Merino Wool turtleneck, so I had to channel Russian ski holiday vibes (apparently). Anyways, Frank + Oak has released their first womenswear collection and it’s great. The pieces are all pretty classic, but nicely tailored with a modern twist. There is also so much Merino happening, so I’m pretty stoked because we all know how much I love my fabrics. I’ve linked my favourite pieces from the collection above.


Office Chic with The Bay Centre

Summer is over, which means that we’re all getting serious about work again. Although this might sound like a drag, both fall layering and office dressing are things I get pretty excited about.

Personally, I love workwear. Some people call it boring, but I think that ‘office chic’ is totally a thing when you have the right pieces in your wardrobe. If you’re rolling your eyes as you read this because you know I’m self employed and writing this in my ÉLISE pajamas (totally accurate), I want you to know that my working life was spent in an office before I started blogging, so I know the struggle.


Royal Champagne Afternoon Tea

Shop The Look

For me, dreamland comes in the form of afternoon tea at The Empress. Then again, I think any blogger would love the antique chandeliers, marble tabletops and timeless columns accentuated by all the bronze detailing and pretty palm plants. It’s when you add in the endless chocolates, cakes, scones, champagne and best creamy Early Grey I’ve ever tried that the space really becomes my definition of heaven. I left with the best kind of food coma, as well as some great photos by Vellar.


Urban Athletics

Shop The Look

Everything fell into place for this post. I already had the Adidas Ulta Boost Uncaged shoe which perfectly matched their newly launched ZNE Hoodie. Then with the addition of silver hair, grey sunnies and a white Ivy Park jersey, I pretty much had the perfect outfit. To top it off, my Bao Bao by Issey Miyake bag arrived, along with a pair of rose gold Sudio headphones to match my new rose gold iPhone. It was the epitome of urban athletic chic, if only I had actually done some exercise. At least I moved enough to snap a few fun photos with Vellar!


Elate Cosmetics: Be Your Own Idol


I’ve been fortunate to connect with many local brands over the past few months and I’m excited to add Elate Cosmetics to that list. As you know, I recently made the switch to green skincare with The Green Kiss and I’ve been working on transitioning my makeup routine since then too. With this in mind, it was perfect timing when the founder of Elate Cosmetics, Melodie, reached out to chat about her brand and a potential partnership.


Rifflandia Music Festival

Rifflandia take places in Victoria around the middle September every year. Although this may not seem like the ideal season after a summer filled with sunny festivals, I like having one more musical weekend to look forward to as Fall arrives. It had been many years since I last attended the festival due to my time abroad, so I was really excited to see how it had grown and evolved.
