Dress Pants

Top : Gentle Fawn || Pants: Gentle Fawn || Coat: Yoins || Hat: Aldo || Heels: (Value Village) ||

I dont rarely wear dress pants, but when I wear a stylish fitted pair, I feel like a million bucks. This is how I feel in these Gentle Fawn pants. This lace cropped top just completes the look, and I seriously feel amazing in this outfit. I quickly threw on my favourite camel jacket and hat and off I went. I wore this outfit to Toronto fashion week, but have since worn this outfit to a meeting and event. These dress pants are beyond comfortable and are seriously great to wear with just about any outfit.

WMCFW- Holiday Dress

Dress: Gentle Fawn || Sunglasses: Ray Ban || Bag: (Value Village) || Heels: (Value Village) || Lipstick: MAC- Heroine ||
With the holidays fast approaching, (which excites me beyond) its time to think about holiday outfits. I know work holiday parties are coming up already and the first thing you think about is, what do I wear!? I wanted to show you what I wore to the World MasterCard Fashion Week in Toronto a few weeks back, because this truly is the most ideal holiday dress. This is from the Gentle Fawn holiday collection, and its my absolute favourite piece from the line. I love how the nude slip is short, so its nothing but sheer lace to showcase off my legs and arms. In my opinion it makes it sexier, but obviously the dress being backless does that all on its own. 
Has anyone else already figured out their holiday outfits already!?

Halloween- Value Village

Value Village is truly the best place to shop for Halloween. You can get vintage and new pieces all in one place. I snagged this vintage dress, and picked up some new makeup and stockings to complete the outfit. The Halloween section is huge and then you get to browse through all the old and find some real treasures.

Deadly Grounds Coffee

I had the pleasure of trying out Deadly Grounds Coffee and fell in love. The original and flavoured roasts are phenomenal. Not only is the packaging perfect (especially for this time of the year) but seriously a great cup of joe. Check out the link above and try out some yummy coffee !

Fall Picnic

Jeans: Mavi || Sweater: Bootlegger || Vest: Buffalo David Bitton || Booties: (Value Village) || Sunglasses: Ray Ban || 

I've always wanted to have a classic fall picnic for so long. I decided this year it was going to happen, and during the Canadian Thanksgiving I packed up all these goodies and set out to the park. The leaves were perfectly scattered on the ground and it couldn't have looked any better. I drank the best apple cider and ate the most delicious fall gingerbread cookies. My mom is a thrift shopper like myself, so over the years she collects the cutest things. This plaid picnic set is something she found thrifting, and I'm so happy I could finally use them!! I decided to go with a very comfy chic outfit for my picnic, and the weather was perfect for a nice feast in the park.

Dufferin Mall Shop Crawl Event

On October 15th over 300 savvy participants took part in Dufferin Mall's first ever ShopCrawl – a wildly popular shopping event in partnership with Canada’s top online community, ChickAdvisor. 
ShopCrawl ticket holders enjoyed an evening of spectacular fall shopping at Dufferin Mall’s top tier affordable fashion retailers H&M, American Eagle Outfitters, Winners/Marshalls, GAP Factory, Dynamite, The Children’s Place, Reitmans, Soft Moc, Call It Spring and Trade Secrets. Shopping bags throughout the mall were filling up as participants took advantage of exclusive deals, with retailers offering anywhere between 15% to 50%.

I had such a fun night! It's such a genius night, getting the best stores in the mall to take part in the shop crawl event, offering amazing discounts. Not to mention the sweet swag bag you get at the end of all of your shopping!! I talked to some other shop crawl participants and they wait around all year to take part in these events and do all their Christmas shopping. It's so smart and you can have a great night with some friends!

Make sure you follow me on Instagram -@sydhoff3 to check out all my new pieces from the event.

Camel in the Country

Coat: Yoins || Shirt: (Dad's Old Shirt) || Leggings: Ardene || Boots: Yoins || Bag: Chanel || Scarf: (Thrift) || Sunglasses: Spy ||

There is nothing I enjoy more than heading up north and driving around back roads during the fall season. Grab a cup of joe, make a great playlist and enjoy the beautiful fall colours in the country. I received this classic camel coat from Yoins and I'm obsessed with it. I'm all for the classic fall gear during this season so anything camel, paired with a big plaid blanket scarf excites me beyond.
