I’m writing to you from snowy Blue Mountain this morning. Peter and I are about to head down for breakfast but I wanted to make sure I got this post up bright and early for you guys because 1. I wanted to say Happy Valentines day and 2. My favourite OTK boots just got marked down to $39!! My jaw was on the floor last night when I noticed the price drop, $39 is an insane deal for boots this cute and well fitting. If you’ve been eyeing them for a while or have been needing a good OTK boot, I highly suggest giving these ones a try. Grab them in black since they go with everything and I promise you’ll be thanking me next fall when all the OTK boots are full price and in high demand. Also I wanted to mention this wrap top, its super high quality so it would be perfect for work tucked into dress pants or a skirt but can also be easily dressed down with jeans – like I’m showing above.
Okay we’re off to breakfast and then headed into the Village for some shopping and exploring. Have a wonderful Valentines day everyone!
As I mentioned in last weeks post, Peter and I went to Blue Mountain on the weekend for their Apple Harvest Festival. We got there on Friday night before the festival started and walked around the village, took some outfit pictures and then headed back to our hotel before dinner. It was so nice to spend a night up north with all the colourful leaves, we don’t normally do trips in the fall but now I feel like it needs to become a tradition! The Harvest Festival started Saturday but it was raining all day so we watched a few shows and demonstrations and then headed back home for Thanksgiving. I wore this sweater when we were exploring on Friday and it was perfect, the weather was cool so it kept me nice and warm! It is a little scratchy though so if you have super sensitive skin, this one might not be for you. I found a look-a-like thats soft and linked it in the widget below.
Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful weekend!
I hope everyone’s been having a great week so far! The weather has really cooled off here which feels so good, I had to bust out my big blanket scarves a few mornings this week, which I love! I’ve also been living in this long grey cardigan since I got it in the mail a few weeks ago, the colour goes with everything and I love the length. Cozy cardigans are a staple in my fall and winter wardrobe and Old Navy has some really good ones right now, and they’re all 30% off this week!
On another note, this weekend is Canada’s Thanksgiving long weekend and I’ve got some fun things planned. Peter and I are headed to Blue Mountain(my favourite place!) for their Apple Harvest Festival for a couple days – to hike, try different ciders, take blog pictures, and just do fun fall activities. Then we’re coming home just in time to celebrate Thanksgiving on Sunday and Monday with each of our families. Thanksgiving has always been my favourite holiday since it falls in my favourite month of the year(my birthday month) October, so I can hardly wait!
Do you guys have any fun plans this weekend? Let me know in the comments! Oh, and follow along on my Instagram stories to see what we get up to at the Harvest Festival (@melissaashburn) 🙂
It’s finally fall but the temps here are still feeling like summer, so I’ve opted for a ‘fall’ outfit that works for both seasons lol! The skirt I’m wearing is from Banana Republic but its about a year old so I’ve linked some other options that would work perfectly for re-creating this type of look. You can literally never go wrong with a classic black and while polk-a-dot piece in your wardrobe…I have quite a few polk-a-dot pieces in my wardrobe because they work for any season and never go out of style!
OH, and this scarf is the same one I mentioned a few posts back (here) but in the camel colour. Its extra soft and so big it could easily double as a throw for on your bed, which makes it the dreamiest scarf for fall ever!
