Luckily, there were many options in store though I'm going to have to make a visit to the Shops At Don Mills location where they carry the Petites section. I thought I'd share some outfit inspiration in case you're headed to BlogPodium too or are in need of a wardrobe refresh. I'm no fashion blogger but I am making more of an effort these days to dress up and really put thought into what I wear. You just feel more confident and beautiful when you do, don't you think?
And here's a bonus just for you:
Anthropologie is offering my Toronto readers 15% off any purchase made during an in-store personal styling session over the next 3 months (until November 12). Just book an in-store personal styling session (fill out this form and choose "in-store") then mention the rewardStyle blogger event at check-out in any of Toronto's four Anthropologie stores.
I saw this top in store and thought it was so pretty. I'd wear it with a pencil skirt for weekend brunch or with casual pants for a daytime event. I usually don't like to be too over dressed or fancy during the day; this outfit feels effortless and just pulled together enough for me.
FULL OF PATTERN:
This dress is not something I would typically wear. But I saw several of the employees in store wearing the same dress (was it a uniform or did they all just really love it?) and it had a fresh bohemian vibe that I was drawn to. Shooties (new fashion term!) seem right for this time of the year.
Most of my personal fashion choices probably fall in this category. I love florals on just about anything and this brocade pouch caught my eye in store. I left it behind but I think I'll have to go back for it! The deeper jewel tones of the dress would transition nicely as we head into colder weather; I think it would look great with opaque tights.
Have you been outfit shopping lately? The stores are starting to fill with fall fashions! And while I love summer, I get a little bit giddy when I start seeing all the layers and warmer clothing.

While it's not a topic I share regularly, I do like to put together the occasional fashion post - it helps me develop my style and be more confident in my fashion choices ;) I think many of us women struggle with our wardrobes, especially as we get older and drift further away from our 'fashionable twenties'.
