Heels and sweater c/o Joe Fresh, cardigan c/o Subtle Luxury, jeans c/o Gap Canada,
bag c/o Mary Nichols, bracelet c/o KV Bijou, H&M earrings
These pictures were taken at 7:15 am so please excuse the tired face! I’m still trying to figure out how to comfortably do the blog around full-time work hours, and I’m thinking I’ll probably wind up doing what I did when I was in Toronto at FASHION Magazine: Matt and I used to do “rise & walks,” aka a cute way of saying I’d drag him out of bed an hour early and we’d snap some pics, grab a coffee (tea for him, he doesn’t like coffee…what a weirdo!!!), walk for 20 minutes or so and then it was off to work for me. 
Fortunately, tired face or not, this stunning citron-hued cashmere sweater from Joe Fresh provides enough of a punch of colour that it perks up whatever outfit (or face) it’s paired with. What’s more, I bought these earrings for $5 while in Montréal for Osheaga during the summer, and they’re an exact match to the sweater. If anything ever works seamlessly with my wardrobe, I always attribute it to fate, so clearly it was destiny! I’m so glad to be joining Joe Fresh as one of its style ambassadors – I love this Canadian-born brand and am so happy to work more closely with a label that I shop so much as it is! 
Happy almost-weekend!

    It's a little ridiculous how much I'm in love with this outfit. I love the pairing of the citrus yellow and the taupe cardigan. Plus the length and flow of the cardigan is perfect. there is such ease to this look but also well thought out. The earrings are beautiful as well. <33333

    I am a yellow lover and that sweater has caught my attention! It's the little details that make this outfit so perfect – the rolling of the yellow sleeve over your cardigan, the fold of the jeans, the pops of colour from your jewellery. I love your style!

    I love Joe Fresh too! I have a pair of Fall boots which are now 3 years old and still going strong as well as a pleated skirt which suits any occasion!

    Yellow is the perfect color to perk up your day, especially when it starts before 7 in the morning! I love that your sweater has little pockets in the front!

    I love that you guys will do "rise and walks" that actually sounds like the best start to the day ever. I'm going to do that with my pup, too bad he can't take my photos as he has no opposable thumbs.
    Is there no colour you can't wear? This shade is gorgeous on you, I love it with the jeans and extra long cardigan, so lovely 🙂

    The "rise and walk" is such a great idea… too bad I am so not a morning person. Love that bright yellow – what a fun colour!

    This outfit is so gorgeous!!! Loving the color combos and gorgeous shoes. Because of my work schedule I have to get up and take my pics early in the am too. Thank goodness for editing programs that can de-puff my "morning face".

    It's most impressive that you're able to accomplish so much so early! I should take a lesson. Everyone of your blog posts makes me want to move further west.
