The photo theme for this month was "Date Night." Our date night happens every Friday and usually involves food. After a long week at work neither of us want to cook and deserve something delicious. This photo was taken at Ciao, our new Italian go-to restaurant. Our favourite table is perfect for celebrity spotting at the Hazelton Hotel and they make an amazing vegetable risotto. It's the perfect start to the weekend!

Planning a wedding is pretty overwhelming so when it came to the decor I wanted to keep things clean, simple, and classic. The location, where all the family gatherings take place, has a lot to offer in terms of aesthetics so we didn't have to do much to enhance this beautiful property. To keep costs low we used a lot of items we already had and even catered the event ourselves. Although it was a lot of hard work, it was a real community effort. Family members, friends, and neighbours all lent a helping hand and I will always remember how each and every one of them contributed to one of the best days of my life.
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoy the photos below. xo

For October I captured the outdoors through my reflection in a puddle. The weather in Toronto lately has been very autumn-like. A lot of rain, bare trees, carpets of leaves on the ground, and chilly temps. It's definitely boots and parka weather!

Jacket: H&M / Tunic: Anthropologie / Jeans: Anthropologie / Boots: Joe Fresh / Bag: Rebecca Minkoff / Rings: ASOS / Necklace: Over the Rainbow
With the change in temperature it's back to black! Not quite cold enough to bust out the puffer coat, I picked up this light weight wool jacket from H&M the other day and immediately fell in love with the silhouette and subtle animal print. This tunic top is also a recent purchase from the latest in-store Anthropologie sale and I love the versatility of the black and white stripes. Anthropologie is in a good phase right now and stocked with a huge inventory of tunic tops. I'm pretty stoked about that since they're the only kind of top I truly feel comfortable wearing with my skinny jeans. You won't find this girl in a crop top any time soon :)

Sweater: Old Navy / Shirt: Urban Outfitters / Jeans: Anthropologie / Boots: Zara / Necklace: Madewell / Bag: Longchamp
I've been spending more time on my bicycle lately, and as a result my daily outfits have comprised of more functional pieces. My choice in footwear has changed because I need something that will grip the pedals and stay on my feet. Since I don't have a bike basket I need something that will carry my lock, lights, and other personal items...this Longchamp backpack is perfect for the job. Stretchy jeans are also a key piece in any bike outfit so I can protect my legs and be flexible if I need to. Now that tights weather is here I've been thinking about wearing more dresses while I bike. If you have a bicycle (or if you just like bikes), what's your favourite outfit combo?

Sweater, Sunglasses, Watch: Anthropologie / Jeans: Gap / Shoes: Converse / Bracelet: Club Monaco
When I saw this sweater in the store I immediately recalled this photo I pinned and snatched it from the rack. The button back is a cute detail and the fact that it's a bit oversize and slouchy doesn't hurt either. Now that the seasons have officially changed I'm excited to add new pieces to my wardrobe. I'm also planning a small purging of my closet so stay tuned for some items added to the blog sale. Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends!
