September 2016 OOTM
I'm posting my outfit of the month for September a few days late. That's because I caught a nasty virus that took more than a week to get over. I didn't think you would want to read about my pajamas and sweatpants, so I waited until I was feeling up to wearing regular clothes again! Fall is my favourite time of year, purely for my love of sweaters and watching the leaves change colour. This sweater is from Zara. It's cropped and has a scallop detail that I love. It is one of the coziest sweaters I own! It is so comfortable that I decided to pick up another one in a similar material. My jeans are by The Castings. The line has unfortunately been discontinued but you can find similar pairs here and here. They were a faint black colour when I purchased them several years ago. They have since faded to a dark grey that I like even better! They are high waisted, so they pair perfectly with the cropped sweater. My sneakers are the Adidas Stan Smiths that I purchased at Aritzia in May. The reason they still look so white is that I've been diligently washing them after each use and I ended up wearing sandals almost every day in the summer. They are definitely going to get a lot more wear now that fall is here. Finally, I'm carrying the detailed faux leather backpack from Zara. I decided to give backpacks a try as an alternative to the overstuffed totes that I usually carry around on one shoulder. It has plenty of room to store all your things (as well as your kids'), and it securely fastens with a drawstring and magnetic snap closure. The adjustable shoulder straps don't go tight enough for me, but I can easily add extra holes. I hope you like my start of fall look. If you need me, I will be buying more sweaters!
