I just wanted to quickly check-in. If you don’t follow me on Twitter or Instagram, than you probably wouldn’t know that I made the decision to abandon Blogtober on Sunday.

It was a sad decision, but it was definitely one that I had to make.

I feel as though my blog posts were declining in effort and I wasn’t super motivated to write them because all of a sudden I had 8,000 assignments due for school. That’s only a slight exaggeration, I kid you not.

These next 2 weeks will either make or break me!

So I will be posting as often as I can over the next little while, but to be honest, my free time is limited! I’m not trying to make excuses, but I just want my blog posts to be the best that they can be. I don’t want to feel rushed or pressured to get one up when I’m just not feeling it because I’ve just written a 10-page essay.


The weather lately has been so up & down, I don’t even really know how to dress.

This morning I left my house wearing a puffy winter jacket, but now I feel silly for wearing it because it’s bright and sunny and doesn’t seem that chilly at all…

Layers have been something that I have been drawn towards this season.

I live in scarves and cardigans, but I have a new-found love for ponchos.

Ponchos are one of those things that I used to live in when I was in elementary school ( just like chokers ). They’re one of those pieces of fashion that have come back on trend & I am living for it.

My mom would disagree that they were ever ‘out of style’ BUT they definitely were not as popular a few autumns ago as they are now.

Layering a poncho or a cape overtop of a chunky knit sweater or even a long-sleeved shirt is one of the coziest ways to dress and I am loving it.

There’s nothing like wrapping a cozy blanket-like piece over you and calling it fashion, am I right?


OK, so the whole point of today’s post is to talk about hats because again, I’m linking up with J Petite and Pucker Up Style for their weekly linkup and today’s fashion theme is hats.

Last fall I did a mini series on my blog all about my favourite pieces for fall & I talked about hats back in pretty much every single post. I wore hats 24/7 last year and I feel as though I’m going to do the same this year.

Basically my love for hats runs strong.

I have a really hard time finding a hat that fits me well though, because I don’t know if you can tell or not, but I have a really big head.

No seriously.

I worked at a fast food restaurant for like four years and they had to order me in a visor because my head didn’t fit in the hats that they had for our uniform…

So when I say I struggle to find hats that fit my head, I mean it.

I’ve had really good luck at F21 though, overall. I mean I’ve ordered a few hats online – because they’re way cheaper than in stores! – and I’ve looked absolutely ridiculous in them, so I’ve returned them. But for the most part, F21 hats fit me well.

I love this black hat and I feature it all the freakin’ time, but honestly it’s my favourite fit / style / colour / look.

A black hat will go with just about any outfit, so I definitely recommend investing in one if you are a hat person like me!

I hope you guys are having a good week so far!

Chat soon,

x JE
