A Year in Review

Actually, since I started blogging in May, it hasn't been quite a year. But still, I thought it might be fun to re-post some of my favorite looks of the year 2013! The link to the post is below the photo!

Happy New Year my friends! Thank you for the support you have shown me through the year. Can't wait to see where 2014 will be taking this blog!

Old Boots

Old Boots from Naturalizer, Joe Fresh Lace Peplum (on sale in store!), Gap Knit Cardi and Denim, Bauble Bar Necklace, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch, Ray-Ban Sunnies borrowed from Kate

These boots are so old and used. Years of snow, slush and salted roads is forcing me to retire them after this winter season. It's sad to say goodbye to a well-loved pair of booties, but at the same time, it allowed me to replace them with a new pair! Keep an eye out for their appearance on the blog!

How was everyone's holidays? Mine were wonderful and cozy. For once, and I'm not sure if this is good or bad, there's wasn't much driving around the province to see everyone's family. It made for less time with my family, but made the holidays a little more relaxing. Other than cooking a turkey. That wasn't relaxing at all (my mom wasn't kidding when she said "you'll be on your feet all day!"), but fun nonetheless. And I didn't give food poisoning to anyone ... I had nightmares about our Christmas supper turning into a disaster. So go me for having it be a success!

Snowy Season

Smart Set Dress, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, J Crew Necklace, Joe Fresh Sunnies, Marc Fisher Booties, Michael Kors Watch

Aaand yes, more snow. These pictures were taken last week and since then, we've had a ton more snow and freezing rain. The weather has been a mess this weekend and was leaving me wondering if I'd make it home for Christmas! Home is only 2 hours' drive away, so it's not so bad, but the ice and snow covered highway leaves me nervous for the drive ahead.

FYI, I got this dress for a killer price in the Smart Set sale. Currently, anything with "pink stickers"that is already reduced has an extra 40% off on top of that price. I got this dress, a cardigan, a skirt and a pair of sock for $50! The website doesn't have much left, but if you have a store near you, it might be worth checking out!

Winter's Tale

Joe Fresh Sweater (now $15!) and sunglasses, Banana Republic Skirt, Lucky Brand Boots, Rebecca Minkoff MAC Mini Bag, Bauble Bar Earrings, Michael Kors Watch

The week is almost over! Thank goodness because that means I'll be on vacation until the new year! I know I've said this before, but I really really need a vacation. I can't wait!

I picked up this Joe Fresh sweater (which I've had my eye on for a while) for $15 when the store was having a tax-free day. Score! It's a cotton blend sweater, so it's not super warm, but the cowl neck makes it very cozy! And you can't beat the price!

Thank you for reading and have a great day!

Cold Weather Accessories

With another snowstorm currently in progress, I can't help but think of newer and better ways to bundle up. What better way to do that than with a collage of my favorite items of the moment! I must own a fur collar (preferably of fake fur, unlike the one I've picked) and a pompom hat this season! And yes, I know the Club Monaco Liza hat isn't necessarily cozy, but I love it so much! I'm coveting so many Club Monaco items at the moment - I'll be counting down the minutes to their (hopefully good) boxing day sale!

How are you staying warm this winter? Any favorite accessories?

Bundled Up

Miss Sixty Coat, Old Navy Sequin Sweatshirt, H&M Skirt, Tights and Scarf, Aldo Boots, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Magnolia Rings, BGBG Max Azria Watch

It's cold guys. So cold that my car wouldn't start this morning. Usually this kind of weather happens in February for us! Because of this, staying bundled up is starting to be very important. One of my favorite and warmest coats is this lovely Miss Sixty coat I bought online years ago for a steal. It's made of wool, is the perfect shade of grey, and fits perfectly in the sleeves and torso, effectively keeping the heat in. Now, if only the buttons would stop falling off, we'd be like two peas in a pod!

Dressing up with kensie!

Dress c/o kensie, Zara Blazer, Ivanka Trump Pumps, Coach Bag, Bauble Bar Earrings, H&M and BCBGeneration Bracelets 

I've long been a fan of kensie clothing, and specifically, of their cute dresses! They have the cutest selection of fit and flare party dresses which are absolutely perfect for the holidays! I'm absolutely in LOVE with the print of the dress I'm wearing today - it's so fun and colorful! To keep the gorgeous funfetti pattern the focus of this look, I decided to pair it with a white blazer to make it stand out. Since it's so cold where I live, I also decided to add tights to the look! What do you think?

FYI, for us Canadian gals, kensie is available on The Bay website at an excellent price point. In fact, a lot of the items are on super sale. I wouldn't say no to this dress or even this one for the holidays. How cute are the prints?

Silk Dots

Joe Fresh Polka Dot Blouse, Old Navy Coated Denim, BB Dakota Blazer, Marc Fisher Booties, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch

Nooo, it's Monday already! Can it be the Holidays, like, now? Only a couple more weeks of work and I'll be off work for a bit! I can't wait to sleep in, wake up to the smell of my Christmas tree, have time to make breakfast in the morning, lounge in my pjs, eat lots of chocolate (as if I don't already do that) and drink a ton of tea. And watch movies! Watching movies is one of my boy and I's favorite activities and we've barely had a chance to do it in the last few months because a) he comes home from work too late, and b) we're too exhausted and we'd fall asleep during the movie. We did get to watch Home Alone yesterday which was so fun! I saw it a few times as a kid so it's funny how little I remembered from the movie! 

FYI, this Joe Fresh blouse is the shit. If you're looking for a silk blouse, look no further - it's comfortable, made of quality silk and it's a great piece to upgrade your closet. I kind of regret not getting another color! They're still available on the Joe Fresh website, in case you're fancying a polka dot pick-me-up.
