Fall is finally here and I couldn't be happier. October is my favourite month because; 1. it's my birthday month, 2. leaves change colours, 3. sweater weather, 4. thanksgiving (sorry my fellow Americans, but thanksgiving is in October, not November). The only thing I don't care for in Fall are those pumpkin spice lattes from Starbucks. I ordered that unnaturally orange, sugar-filled concoction twice in my life: the first and the last (no disrespect to all you PSL lovers out there💛 ).
I really do love anything fall-related, especially being outdoors during these cooler days. These brisk, but not to cold days are my favourite days of the year.
Okay so the choker I am wearing in these pictures looks like any other store-bought choker right? Well, it's not. I could not justify spending 17+ dollars on any of the Aldo (or other accessories stores) chokers, so I decided to make my own.
This choker costs me 1.50$ and 20 minutes of my time (what better bargain could a girl ask for)!
Step 1: Go to your local fabric store (here in Montreal, try Fabricville) and buy about 1.5 meters of leather string
Step 2: take any pair of old or broken jewelry (I used a broken pair of Forever 21 earrings, but any type of "bead" will work) and attach one to each end. Tie a knot to secure the bead and there you have it.
Two whole steps, 20 minutes and 2$... I know, very demanding. 😉
What I'm Wearing
Sweater: Zara (EXACT) , Jeans: TOPSHOP, Jamie Moto , Belt: Western belt - Simons (one of the absolute best belts I've ever owned - I pair it with everything), Boots: Zara (again these are definitely a fall favorite, they are affordable, easy to wear and not too high - I have been wearing them non stop), Choker: see above DIY method!!
I have to say, I find with some seasons, the Zara collections are very much hit or miss. However, I am exceptionally impressed with this fall/winter collection. If you guys are looking to snag some trendy (or even classic) items this fall, definitely check out Zara (for my fellow Montrealers, I promise you Carrefour Laval is the best one in the city and well worth the trip).
I hope you all had a wonderful thanksgiving!!!
