Momma's Shed

It's the first day of September! Are you all a little stunned? I know I am... the summer has flown by, but I am ready to embrace fall with open arms. Pretty new fall things make that a lot easier... like this dress & bag! 

The dress arrived at my doorstep from a darling little boutique called La Quaintrelle! Now what makes this shop extra special to me is that it's based out of Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, my neighboring province! I am in love with this dress... it's appropriate for everything  from daytime errands to a dinner out  to the office! Love! I can't wait to pair it with wine colored tights & black booties this fall! Shipping within Canada is only $7 annnnd, my favorite part, no customs or duty to deal with! 

This bag I've had on layaway since the Je Suis Prest fall preview party, and today it finally came home with me! I fell in love with the color instantly, and realized I didn't own a cross-body bag, so it only made sense that it should be mine. ;) 










 Dress: c/o La Quaintrelle, Belt: Jacob, Shoes: Steve Madden, Bracelet: Joe Fresh, Watch: Michael Kors, Bag: Co-Lab (Je Suis Prest)

  16. Very very cute, I love that dress and love how you styled it. The leopard belt gives a really cool pattner-on-pattern accent and the bag tied everything in with its warm colour. Beautiful!
