I swear it was fall weather just last week here in Toronto, but it looks like it’s going to be in the high twenties for the next little while. While I’m happy that we get to enjoy the beautiful summer weather just for a little bit longer, I’m eager to start wearing chunky knit sweaters and riding boots already!

Knit sweaters are one of my fave pieces to wear during the fall season, and here are two simple looks you can wear to transition from summer to fall. Let me know which look you would wear!

I am LOVING the lace-up sweater trend right now. I want one in every colour! On those warmer fall days, you can pair a knit sweater with a pair of denim shorts and some sneakers for a casual look. Converse recently sent me these awesome One Stars – the suede fabric makes it such a great fall sneaker!

I’ve been loving blush a little too much lately, if you couldn’t already tell… White jeans are still trending, and they look v nice paired with any coloured knit sweaters. For a more casual look I went with my fave blush mules, but you can even wear a pair of strappy heels like these Aldo ones.
