Bloggers Do It Better

Fall Fashion’s Top Five from Vancouver’s Top Five

Too often you get my picks for Fall (well it is MY blog), but I thought it would be fun to hear the picks of some of my favourite Vancouver Mommy Fashionistas – and in their other life: a blogger, a personal stylist, a boutique owner, an editor and a cinematographer.

The filmmaker: Johanna Osbourne aka Cine Mama

Sunday shopping: Shopping for Fall on a budget

Have you seen the latest arrivals in Old Navy recently? Hmmm. I am so in love with some of their stuff this season. Lots of stylish pieces for low low prices. I love how they just have such a good pick of basics and classic items, the simple lines and the burst of bright colour. And the best part – order them online, to your front door and if they’re not good for you, return them for free!! Very cool. Perfect for any SSM.

Here’s what i’m coveting this week:

  

And remember, Old Navy constantly has discounted days so join their mailing list and wait for one of those days! Happy Sunday shopping! xxo, SSM

Bright interruptions on a cloudy day

This Fall, get yourself some brightly coloured pieces so as the weather gets colder and foggier, you’ll still stand out in the crowd.

If you’re not comfortable with main piece, stick to accessories – a bag or a shoe.

Don’t go overboard, you don’t want to turn into a rainbow. Make sure you wear the bright colours with a neutral or a pattern print.
