You open your closet, and while the drawers may be over flowing you think you yourself I have nothing to wear! Oh, we know that feeling all too well!
We firmly believe that with great basics you can have endless options so ... we gathered a few of our favourite basics from our Fall '19 collection to show you what you can do with them.
Our goal with this blog post is for you to take inventory of your closet, find pieces that you can bring back out of hiding and find new ways to wear your old favourites and maybe mix in a new piece or two!
A denim jacket is a Fall staple. We love them in the Spring & Summer over a cute dress; moving into Fall we are looking for ones with higher stretch and that fit a little longer - so we can layer them over hoodies!
(Pinky Promise DoubleHood & Ultimate Denim Jacket)
Featured here is the Ultimate Denim Jacket - appropriately named, it features a ton of stretch, fits longer through the torso and has hidden pockets inside.
Find the Ultimate Denim Jacket on our website HERE
Next up we have the Tencel Jacket made from a silk like fabric, it comes in a variety of colors. You can dress it up or dress it down - I usually style mine with yoga pants, a loose tee, Mala necklace and converse!

Hoodie addicts unite!
We are known for our epic hoodie selection here at Bunky & Marie's Boutique. If you're looking for Ampersand Ave. or Wanakome, you know where to find it!
No wardrobe is complete without a DoubleHood Sweatshirt from Ampersand Ave.! We picked out a neutral DoubleHood with a ton of stretch - the "Pinky Promise" DoubleHood.
By the same manufacturer, the HalfZip Hoodie gives you a bit more versatility - layer it over a cute tee or tank. The HalfZip style is nursing friendly, light weight and available in some great neutrals like the Seafoam Stripe.

To complete our closet, a FullZip style hoodie is just what we need. We went bright here with the Peacock color Hera style hoodie from Wanakome.
Wanakome hoodies are thick, cozy and feature a high CowlNeck - tuck your chin down behind that cowl and keep warm.

Every great hoodie needs a vest to cozy up with on a chilly day!
(Hera FullZip Hoodie, Ash Joggers, Need My Coffee Tee, Knit Puffer Vest, Favourite Fit Jeggings)
We love the Knit Puffer Vest by Grace & Lace. This soft, fabric vest is a true to size fit if you know you’re going to layer it over a hoodie or thick layers we suggest bumping up a size.

A step up from yoga pants, high stretch jeans! are where it’s at!! Jeans that move with you, jeans that you can feel comfortable in sitting on the floor playing with your kids and feel confident in for girls night out!
For denim, our choices were one pair of denim and one pair of black skinny jeans and a pair of flares. The fitted styles are great for everyday errands, or dressing up with boots. Flares are back and we couldn't be happier! They elongate the leg and with their high stretch factor they feel fabulous!
All a mid-rise style, they sit just below the belly button.

Long Sleeves ... we live in Calgary, Alberta and while we are grateful for Chinooks, our Winters can be quite cold! So we went heavy on the long sleeve collection. Warm tones, cozy knits and even a fun print.
All these pieces are available in warm tones, and keeping with similar colors we were able to layer them and mix and match them with other pieces.
Accessorize! We picked out a bold checkered wrap - the wrap style is perfect to wrap around your shoulders poncho style. Dress it up by belting it around the waist or just keep warm at the hockey rink!
(Ashley Sweater & Wrap)
Don’t let the wrap style limit you, we wrapped it around with the triangle pointed down and wore it as a blanket scarf ... and with colors like that, you can’t go wrong!
