These boots are made for walking!

I planned this outfit around these burgundy booties; not only are they pre-loved, they are also vegan. I pulled out my burgundy polka dot leggings, added a burgundy hemp scarf and topped it off with my pre-loved burgundy beret. Another casual autumnal look with one of my favourite colours.

Berets are perfect for this time of year and I’m glad I have a collection of colours so I can match any outfit. All but one of my berets are pre-loved ($5 or less).

These boots are made for walking the trails of our forest, the sound of crunching leaves is music to my ears. Leisurely autumn strolls along the shore of Lake Huron or just a walk in the neighbourhood, these booties are up for the adventure.

My little shoulder bag is just the thing I need for essentials on a hike: cell phone and keys and lipstick.

The first time I ever heard the term pre-loved for second-hand items was reading fashion blogs! Let me know one of your favourite pre-loved finds in the comments.

  1. Hi Carmen! I can see why the outfit was planned around the booties, they are very cute ! I love those polka dot leggings and the white top makes the scarf and beret pop. How wonderful most of your berets are preloved. I can only imagine how nice it is to take an autumn stroll along Lake Huron. I am glad you are able to take advantage. The shoulder bag is the perfect size for all the essentials a girl could need on a hike . One of my favorite pre loved finds is my new black dress and white cardigan combo that i purchased recently, I got both for under $20 in same store! I will show you a pic later. Have a great rest of your day, Terri xo.

      Thank you very much! It’s so fun treasure hunting in thrift shops, I’m glad you found a dress and cardigan combo for under $20. I just bought a beautiful new pre-loved cardigan coat, made in Canada.

    LOVE those boots. And the beret. I think I need to expand my beret collection because they really are easy to wear and much easier to travel with too.
