After 10 days of rain and some crazy storms here in Alberta, I took full advantage of a few brief days of sunshine earlier this week. Today I’m chatting about carefree summer style and my favourite easy pieces to wear on hot summer days. You know, those simple ‘one and done’ pieces that practically style themselves — you can just throw them on and go? That’s what today’s post is all about! I’m also sharing some great accessories to add interest to easy summer outfits along with my go-to pair of oversized shades. Come adventure to the beautiful canola fields right behind my family’s acreage in rural Alberta and enjoy some virtual Vitamin D!

Are you in the holiday spirit yet?! This has been such a busy month for me, and the weather has been so nice that it’s hard to believe it’s almost that time of year! Today I’m sharing my favourite timeless pieces to wear during the holidays. For me, the holidays are all about spending time with friends and family, and winding down. While I love to get glammed up for holiday parties, today’s post is about those classic style staples that you can wear to casual get togethers and family dinners — occasions when you still want to look cute and festive, but be comfortable. I also chat about finding the perfect red lip to complete your holiday look!

My personal style is pretty eclectic. I’m all about mixing it up! I get bored easily, and I like to wear a lot of different styles — that applies to both fashion and beauty. I’ve always been a bit of a chameleon, and I totally channel that into my look! I dress according to my mood, and have a lot of versatile piece in my closet that allow me to keep things fresh without having to buy a new wardrobe each season. I also like to mix high and low, old and new, and sophisticated with casual. That’s what today’s look is all about — I’m wearing plaid with patent, fringe with faux fur, and berry lips with boyfriend jeans! I think fashion should be fun, and I love combining different styles in unexpected ways.

Sometimes you just want to be really comfortable, am I right?! While I absolutely love dressing up, there are many occasions when I still want to look put together, but be comfortable and cozy (like a casual Thanksgiving dinner, for example — when I wore this exact outfit!). Today I’m chatting about my favourite comfortable, elevated basics for autumn. I love to add lots of texture and interest to my outfits with light layers and versatile accessories — my favourite pieces are made from soft, comfortable fabric, and their unique details make them more interesting than your basic leggings and oversized tee. Curl up with a big latte and let’s chat about laid-back fall style!

Last month I received a request via Instagram about what items I consider to be fall fashion staples — so that’s what today’s post is all about! Each of these pieces are on repeat in my fall wardrobe, and transition through the seasons. I chat a little bit about which pieces I invest in, and which inexpensive pieces I incorporate into my personal style. I also break down a few of this seasons trends and show you how to wear them!

I’m so happy to be sharing more fashion content with you this fall and winter! To kick things off today, I’m starting a new series here at JustineCelina called HOW TO STYLE — showing you how to style a specific on-trend item that you might not think you can pull off, or may be intimidated by.
I’ve loved ponchos for years, and will always wear what I love regardless of whether or not it’s trendy — but I’m pretty excited that ponchos are everywhere this fall! They’re such a statement piece, and a great way to add interest, depth and texture to your fall wardrobe. The one I’m wearing is actually from Garage Clothing (yeah that’s right… I was shocked too!) — it’s so cozy and luxurious feeling. Come take a look at how I styled this beautiful bohemian poncho for autumn!

If you’re following me on Instagram, you probably saw this post coming. Lately I’ve been obsessed with all things rust, so I today I thought I would share a few of my favourite pieces with you! I think rust is such a beautiful, warm, inviting colour, while still acting as a neutral — perfect for fall! This post is the first installment in my COLOUR CRUSH series, where I highlight the colour of the moment and show you how to work it into your personal style.
