Giveaways and Reviews

Hello First Day of Fall!

I have plans for this weekend. Storing the patio furniture is at the top of my list, and with that comes the close of our summer. I love sitting on our deck all summer long while the kids play in the yard, and putting away the furniture is definitely a sign that it’s fall. I’ve already decorated my front porch for fall and yes, I’ve had my first pumpkin spice latte of the season last week and I’ve also started shopping for some great new fall wardrobe pieces, including flowy (it’s a word, even if my spell check doesn’t recognize it) blouses and cozy cardigans.

Isn’t the porch cute? I’m so happy with the way it worked out. Like my Christmas decorations, I add a few pieces here and there every year, and this year, a few key pieces (hay bale, wreath and welcome mat) from Lowes made everything come together. My outfit is from Mark’s head to toe! My Sung Alfred Sung Long Sleeve Hooded Car Coat (reg $69.99) is so cozy and soft and is already my most-worn fall item since it’s so easy to grab when taking the dog for a walk or picking the kids up from school. Did you know that Mark’s has over 250 different styles of jeans for men and women? It’s my go-to place to shop now, with brands like Silver Jeans Co., Levi’s, Guess, Buffalo and more, you’ll always find a ton of styles and sizes both in store and online. These Silver Jeans Co. Suki Mid Slim Jeans ($105) are among my favorites – so soft and easy to grab and throw on for a day at home or night out with the girls.

Can we talk about these boots? I grabbed a photo from the Mark’s site to show you more detail. Available in both black and olive, these DH Women’s Larissa Lace Boots (reg. $79.99) remind me of Doc Martens, though not as wide, and also resemble riding boots, but more comfortable. They’re awesome with skinny jeans and leggings, especially if you don’t want a heel and a more casual look. I love them!

I shared more fall picks from Mark’s at Global News Morning Regina recently, with the help of some Edge models. Check it out in the clip above and if you’re looking for specifics, here’s a list of what they wore below!
