Hey beauties! If you've been following along with Trend Struck you would have noticed that I've been working a lot with Brave Leather a Canadian brand that makes all sorts of amazing leather goods. During the summer they asked me to team up to model for their fall lookbook and I'm excited to share it with y'all if you haven't seen it yet! There are definitely a handful of pieces that I'm eyeing from the collection but my top 5 are: The Shayla, Oona and Naylie belt, the Kipper Fringed Bucket Bag and the Sharon Clutch. Stay close because next month I'll be hosting a giveaway with Brave to give one lucky reader a fall favourite!

PAY ATTENTION! Not only am I going to share with you my favourite trend for fall but I'll also be letting you in on how you can get a $500 head start on your fall wardrobe (and it's SUPER easy). I teamed up with Upper Canada Mall to get inspired with the help of their Gorgeous Magazine Fall/Winter issue. I couldn't agree more with 'Effortless Chic' when it comes to fall dressing. As it gets colder it instantly becomes more of a struggle to pull yourself together but luckily it doesn't have to take a lot in order to actually look stylish on your day-to-day. Cue favourite fall fashion trend: Sweater dresses. I headed over to Upper Canada Mall to stock up on some fall clothing and home with me came a handful of dresses. The one I'm wearing today is the Bianca Dress I scooped up from Aritzia. It's black, simple, slouchy and cozy yet feeling like my outfit is basic is far from the truth. In todays look it's my Stuart Weitzman High Street thigh highs that took this dress to a whole other level. Can you not agree that took very little effort and does in fact look amazing? This is an example of how I would dress it up to wear out to an event or drinks. Although dressing it down is simple too. I'm planning on pairing this dress up with my pleather leggings with a pair of booties. For this look I would also add my daily accessories like a handful of rings and now I'm ready to run my errands. K, so are you done hearing about my outfit and ready to get to the good stuff like winning a $500 shopping spree?

So the shoes I picked up from Le Chateau for September are my absolute favourites! Lace up details are huge on my love list right now and you already know how I feel about a chunky heel. This shoe is part of their Luxe Collection which means they are constructed with Italian-made suede... so comfy AF. They are currently a big part of my daily shoe game right now until I'm forced to go full coverage. Today I'm styling the Ghillie sandal with this flannel shirtdress I scooped up from Aritzia recently. I love dresses for fall something about mixing up a bare leg and long sleeves is so cozy to me. It's odd actually, I rarely wear dresses in the warmer months. Sometimes there just aren't explanations for the things that we do. I love the simplicity of sweater/shirt dresses. They require very little effort, are comfortable and can still look stylish. I hope you like them too because I have a lot more coming your way! Have a fantastic week everyone xx

BIKO is at the top of my list for favourite Canadian jewelry designers, easily. I discovered this line when I stole one of my sisters necklaces (naturally) and as time went on the line kept popping up and every time it did I was always falling in love with each piece. Although I've turned more dainty recently I could never give up substantial pieces to create a good look at times. I feel like designer Corrine Anestopoulos designs specifically for my taste lol. But really there isn't a piece she creates that I don't love and think "this is like soooooo me". I can't get enough of the different metals available (it seriously causes conflict when deciding which to get) and the pendants she uses. A lot are tribal looking, some infused with stones but all super earthy that fit my style to a T. If I were you I would hop over to her site and check out her latest Fall Collection because it's amazing. I am eyeing way too many pieces but I can assure the Thea Wrap is definitely one I'm snagging. Hope you love the line just as much as I do! xx
