Local Love: Uptown Casuals

‘Tis the season for cozy sweaters, pumpkin spice everything, scarves, boots, and colds. Yes that’s right, colds. Ugh, I only say that because I’m writing this in between sips of Nytol- if this doesn’t make sense you’ll know why, haha!

For obvious reasons I love summer #teacherlife, but I also ADORE fall. There is just something about that crisp air that always has me excited about reaching sweaters.
This oversized sweater is perfect for this time of year. It’s not too bulky and has an open neck (we’ll save the turtle necks for -40!) so you’re not sweating when the weather heats up in the afternoon. #fallproblems
This entire outfit is from Uptown Casuals a local Sask boutique! Chances are they’ve popped up on your Instagram feed and you’ve thought I need that!! Well, you’re in luck!! We have teamed up and we are giving away a $150 gift certificate to their store! All you need to do to be entered is:

That’s it! Now, to give you a little inspo I’m sharing my Uptown wishlist:

These boots!! The chunky heel, the color, and the cut out… yup a definite NEED.

I own these slides (as shown below) and trust me when I say you need them.  They are beyond comfortable and literally go with everything!! If these babies aren’t on my feet they are in my bag just in case I need a break from my heels.  Perfection… and only $42!!

Bell sleeves are everywhere this season and let me tell you, I cannot get enough! Such a fun twist to a typical knit! Also, this color… L.O.V.E.

These grey jeans make the list obviously because they’re super cute, but also because they are so versatile! I could see myself wearing these with sneakers a graphic tee, and a leather moto jacket on Sunday and then with some pumps and a blouse to work on Monday. #need

And if that wish list doesn’t have you inspired to go and enter the contest here is a head to toe look from Uptown Casuals!
