jacket - H & M     jeans - Suzy Shier     ankle boots - Suzy Shier      scarf - Payless Shoes      bag - Army &Navy

Wow I just realized what a cheap outfit this is! Not as in hooker-cheap, I mean that I don't think I paid over $30.00 for anything I'm wearing here! This H & M Army jacket is one of my favorites that I got on sale last April. It's great for the Fall and Spring and you can dress it up or down and wear it fitted or loose.

Did you all have a good weekend? I hope so : ) I've talked about my two-year-old  nephew Kayden on this blog a few times and he is OBSESSED with trains so my mom and I thought he would love to ride our city's streetcar over the High Level Bridge yesterday. My Mom and I couldn't believe we had never ridden it before, it really is a little gem that not a lot of locals even know about. If you live in the Edmonton area I suggest you go! A ticket costs only $4.00. Note: my mom isn't in any of the photographs because she didn't want her mug posted on the world wide web ; ).

There's Kayden and the streetcar which was built in 1947 in Australia.

Here was one of our views from the train. Remember how in an earlier post I said I don't like Fall because that means Winter is just around the corner and I hate and despise our Canadian winters more than I despise getting a cavity filled? Well with all these beautiful colors I've decided to give Fall another chance ; ). I'll curse Winter once it arrives but for now I am going to enjoy the beautiful scenery and foliage we have this time of year. Yeah, I gave in : )~

Gorgeous! That's the North Saskatchewan River that runs through Alberta.

Kayden loved every minute of it.

See? What a cheeseball.

We got off the train and grabbed Starbucks. A Pumpkin Spiced Latte for me and a Rice Krispie Square for the munchkin.Then he pooped his pants.

After Starbucks we headed back over the bridge to go home.

Conductor Kayden. Next week we're taking him on the LRT/Subway! It'll be better than Disneyland for this kid!

I hope you have a great week! ***If you haven't entered my giveaway you can enter it here!

Aww, love this post, Marie!
I love the first pic with that background, your boots are too cute, did you get them this season?
Your nephew is so adorable, and WOW those trees are breathtaking!
Edmonton is such a pretty city, I think it's more visually appealing than Calgary for sure!

Marie a la Mode said...

Kim: I got the boots last Spring, I'm not sure if they would still have them, they were on sale so I think they were getting rid of them.

Calgary's beautiful too! And you have an AMAZING zoo!

Kara said...

NaomiDee said...

Pop Champagne said...

HOLY the scenes are so pretty right now with all the leaves going yellow. and cool outfit, that's awesome that everything is under $30 cuz you cant tell at all!

Nikosmommy said...

Simple pleasures when kid are that little. I suppose they become more discriminating in their "likes" as they get older. My eldest went through his train phase....I think most boys do!
Fall in edmonton is gorgeous, we're just a little behind you here..still a bit green. But the leaves will fall off in the next 7-10 days. Like that fast! Fall is beautiful but way too short here....

Lyndsy said...

Your scarf is so pretty! Love the bright colors and that little Kayden is adorable!

this free bird said...

Ohhhh!! Fall in Edmonton is in full force. Love all your pictures soooo much. Thanks for sharing!!

And your outfit is great...the scarf is so perfect against the jacket!

WOW! That view is breathtaking. We don't have fall colors like that here in Hawaii. :( Everything pretty much stays green. :)

I'm lovin' your parka. I wish H&M would hurry up and open up a store in Hawaii or at least have an online site (for shopping) available. :) Happy Monday!

xx Love & Aloha

Oh my goodness I cannot believe another Edmonton fashion blog exists. So exciting to see pics taken at places I recognize.

Also when did you get those booties AND are they comfy, because they are to die for.

Patricia: I got those booties last Spring, not sure if they would have them still. I'm going to check out your blog right now!

five foot something said...

So further to my previous comment, I actually went thrifting with my blogging partner, Bailey, this afternoon and found those EXACT same Suzy Shier boots in my size at the west end Goodwill. It was like fate :). Thanks for checking out our blog, as well.

Nic Nic said...

Alberta looks beauitful and i love your khaki green jacket!! I think i saw this in their fashion magazine...

Jo said...

Gasp, you live in E-town?? I thought I was the only person who was interested in fashion here, lol. I used to have a blog eons ago, but I found it was so hard to take good photos during our long, hard winters. How do you plan to get through it?

Marie a la Mode said...

Jo: Hi! Yes, I live in E-town! I'm not sure how I'm going to take photos in the winter time, I haven't figured that out yet. I know it will be hard, though!

Dlife said...
