Two outfit posts in one week! WHAT is going on? Well, two things… I couldn’t not share this Cupcakes and Cashmere sweater with you because it’s that good, and also the butternut squash pie I made on the weekend isn’t quite blog ready yet. Although we did still thoroughly enjoy it. I seriously have so many ideas for recipes that I could just cook and cook all day if I had time, which I absolutely do not. Haha. We usually eat a legit home cooked meal (grilled cheese doesn’t count) about 2-3 times per week. And I will bake something like banana bread or muffins with Emmylou maybe once on the weekend (less busy weeks I will bake more often because I really like desserts…). To do a recipe post I usually have to make it twice, once to test it out, and once to perfect it. But we were so busy on the weekend I didn’t have time for the second pie (which I had grandiose plans of freezing to save for an easy yet delicious after trick-or-treating dinner. Now, chances are we’ll have grilled cheese – to go with our mini chocolate bars of course. Eek. I can’t believe Halloween is so close! I’m super excited about it this year because Emmylou is old enough to understand that something is going on, and now I have someone to walk around the neighbourhood and look at decorations with AND watch Halloween cartoons with. She’s totally my bff.
Now for this look! As I said, this sweater is amazing. It can even be used as a jacket because it’s made from thick wool so I know I’ll get a ton of use out of it. I love versatile pieces that you know you’ll pull out again and again instead of wearing a couple of times then forgetting about. Even better that it comes in grey so it will match virtually everything in my closet. I paired it with another super versatile piece – a sleeveless grey Aritzia blouse (comes in eight colours). My jeans are high-rise skinnies from Aritzia – great fit and great price, and my boots are a recent Nordstrom purchase which I’ve been wearing on repeat for the past couple of weeks. My bag is also a great price and a great fall/winter edition for your wardrobe!
