Jules Approved: Fall Must Haves



1. STATEMENT SWEATER // PRELOVED
Cozy sweaters are always a fall must have. This Sadie sweater is made of vintage sweaters with a statement heart piece. It's also fully lined (but scratch free) to keep you warm in the chilly fall weather.

2. WOOL HAT // H&M
 Not ready to say goodbye to summer yet? Update your summer floppy hat to a smaller, black wool hat to transform a summer trend to fall trend.

3. NECKLACE // ANTHROPOLOGIE 
Chunky necklaces instantly make any outfit more feminine and romantic. They are the perfect way to add a pop of colour and sparkle to your casual appearance.

4. HIGH RISE JEANS // J BRAND
High rise jeans are a must have this season because of trending crop tops and crop sweaters... Not to mention tucking in the mummy tummy!

5. OVERSIZED CLUTCH // ROOTS
 This casual bag is perfect for day or night. It double functions as a casual cross-body bag or a more formal oversized clutch. It's neutral and soft colours make it easy to wear regardless of the occasion. 

6. SLINGBACK BOOTIE // ZARA
This pair of slingback booties spice up your usual pair of ankle boots. Cut outs at the back of the boot are very unique and trending this season. The best part is you can wear these boots with a dress or a pair of jeans... I haven't taken them off since I bought them.

7. LIPSTICK // CHARLOTTE TILLBURRY
Charlotte Tilburry's Matte Revolution lip offers many different shades but this dark, bold lip is a beauty must have this fall. Plus, Charlotte Tilburry just recently started being shipped to Canada so be one of the first to own her products!

8. EARRINGS // J. CREW
This pair of crystal bug earrings adds a little sparkle of personality to any outfit. They are the perfect size to be a statement piece but aren't distracting from the rest of your outfit.

9. LEATHER BOOTIES // STEVE MADDEN
Leather ankle boots hit the list again, but this time with a comfort focus. These little heels are comfortable to wear all day. The brown, plain colour is easy to match with but the quilted texture adds a little bit of flare.

10. QUILTED JACKET // PRELOVED
Anything quilted is very on trend this season. The Genie jacket is unlike any jacket you will find this fall. I'm especially loving the quilted arms, leather trim and cropped waistline.

The weather officially feels like fall. Let's all dust off our boots and take them out, because summer is over and it's not coming back (for a while at least). This Sadie sweater is the perfect transitional piece in my wardrobe right now. It will be coming soon to Get Preloved!

50 Years of Bliss





My parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last weekend.  It was an incredible afternoon of friends and family, coming together to celebrate this amazing event.  "wow 50 years' my mom says ' we made it!'  I have always known how blessed I am to have such incredible role models in my parents, but I didn't realize what great friends of mine they would become.  My parents are a huge part of my life, and of my kids.  I am proud to say that two of my closest friends would be my mom and dad!  Congrats guys...here's to making marriage look easy!!

Being Julia: Vegas Style - Getting There

After completing the collection, the hardest part is deciding what to wear at Vegas ! We're off again to ENK Vegas to show off our newest Spring/Summer 2015 pieces . It's a challenge trying to pack even for a 3 day trip, and putting together outfits in advance without bringing my entire shoe collection with me ! I'll be posting sneak peeks of our new collection and how i style them !

Here's the first of the 4 day series, what i'm wearing on my way there ! Just a 4 and a half hour flight, and a probably equally as long customs line and the Vegas fun begins !

Fun At The Lake


I can't believe how fast this summer is going.  We are half way through, and we have barely gotten through our 'fun list'.  On the last day of school, the kids and I made a list of all the things we wanted to do this summer....water skiing, tubing, nature hikes, lose 5 pounds ( ok that was only on my list)....it seems every year the summer goes quicker and quicker, and before you know we are back in winter clothes dreaming of next summer!  Well my goal for the remaining of the summer is to embrace every moment left...water ski as much as possible, have a nature hike every night, and not to worry about those 5 pounds... we only have 4 weeks left of bathing suit weather anyways.  The best thing about summer ending, is the beginning of the fall wardrobe!
