What We're Packing for TIFF!
We are so excited to be packing up our bags and heading to Toronto International Film Festival this year with Sorel! TIFF is one of the premiere film festivals and we're excited to explore Toronto, get dressed for fall, and spot a few celebrities! And of course, we'll be sharing a Toronto city guide with you too featuring all our fave finds.
We travel a LOT, and along the way we have found a few products that we always pack to make travelling so much more enjoyable, so we thought we would share some with you guys! Let us know if you like these packing posts, or what other kind of travel hacks, travel beauty, or "packing" posts you'd like to see from us.
CLEAN BEAUTY FINDS PERFECT FOR TRAVEL
First up: some of our clean beauty faves for travel! Travelling is absolutely brutal on your skin, whether it's the germs and A/C on the planes drying out your skin, switching climates, and the toll of timezone and jet lag.
One of the clean beauty products we swear by is Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask, and it's seriously trending right now (for good reason). Created by the blogger Marianna Hewitt, the mask instantly revives and moisturizes dehydrated skin and actually helps your tired undereye bags. We wore it basically every day when we were in Europe this summer, you can buy it online or at Sephora (in Canada now too!).
We also always travel with lavender oil, which is essential for calming us on airplanes or helping us sleep in new beds! Right now we're trying out some new essential oils from Vitruvi, a local Vancouver brand. Moon Juice's reishi powder is perfect for adding to coffee when travelling to help boost your immune system and reduce inflammation. While not "natural," we're trying out The Chemistry Brand's Glow Oil right now as an alternative to self tanner.
We're also obsessed with the new travel kit from Pink House Natural Solutions, which features travel sized versions of their amazing clean beauty products. Our faves are the raspberry face cream, champagne glow stick (the best highlighter EVER, we wear it every single day), and natural dry shampoo. They also have a natural deodorant and face wash too! You can purchase online or at local stockists across Canada.
FALL TRENDS WITH SOREL
One of our favorite things about travelling to new places is shopping (obviously), and we were actually super excited to see that it was going to be cooler in Toronto...hello, fall clothes. Here's a peak at what we'll be wearing at TIFF and into the fall season!
By now you probably know that we are obsessed with Sorel shoes and live in them all year long (they have the best sandals too). Sorel's mules are sooo comfy, so when we saw the new After Hours mule in this cool wine color, we knew they'd be perfect for long days of walking around the city. We paired it with a vintage blouse and this cool black denim pinafore from Frank & Oak's new fall collection!
One fall trend we are currently obsessed with is patterns, fanny packs, and mustard yellow. Bring on all the Clueless-inspired plaid, please. This outfit is perfect for TIFF, whether you're going to a film screening or heading out to dinner after! We're going to be living in these Sorel Campsneak slip ons, and this billowy blouse from Zara is super comfortable. You can snag this suede bum bag from Boohoo for less than $20, and for all the curvy girls out there, Gap's Curvy denim line is the best and we love these new high waisted jeans.
Since we'll be at TIFF for opening weekend, we have to have looks for the after parties too! We are pretty obsessed with the new Frank & Oak fall collection, and we're packing this mustard yellow cord skirt too, paired with a turtleneck body suit. Another fall trend we are very into this year is primary colors and ankle socks with boots, so we'll be rocking the Sorel Margo Chelsea boot with these red socks from Topman.
This post is in partnership with Sorel, one of our favorite brands ever!
