MY CASUAL STYLE FOR FALL
Uh oh… did I say the four letter f word? I know, it’s a scary thought for some: FALL, also known as, the end of summer. The days are shorter, the mornings are chillier and for myself and the majority of my good friends, it means back to the classroom.
I made a big decision to go back to work this school year. I have been on a double maternity leave for the past four years, staying at home with my boys. I really wanted to make the right decision for my family but also for me. I am always a big advocate for doing things that make YOU happy. Luckily enough, a part-time position was available at a school that I have always wanted to teach at. I couldn’t be luckier with the way it worked out! I still get to keep that home aspect of my life but continue on with my professional career as well.
It also gives me time to time to keep up with my blogging and crocheting! I typically pick dressier styles for my blogs posts but I secretly love dressing down. I feel most like myself in my good ol’ Chuck Taylor Converse shoes. Soft distressed denim and this chunky scarf make this whole outfit comfortable and cozy: perfect for the approaching colder weather.
The Dylan Fringe Scarf is a new one in my Etsy Shop this month. I wanted to create a new pattern that included tassels to keep with the current trends. It’s made with chunky marble grey and white yarn but also comes in a variety of colours. It is by far my favourite scarf style yet. The length is over seven feet and makes for a really versatile scarf that would be great over a sweater, a long-sleeve tee (as seen above) or a coat.
If you live in Calgary, come visit me at the Etsy: Made in Canada market this September! Over 6,000 are attending and you can find all the details here.
P.S. For all those teachers and momma’s with kids going back to school this week, I hope it went well!
