Happy Valentine's Day! 

Nothing is more suited for the romantic hallmark holiday than a beautiful dress, and I've been wanting this Self Portrait piece for awhile now.

Cozy with JORD Watches - GIVEAWAY!

Jord watches, wood watches, uniqlo, minimalistic outfit, winter fashion, culottes

The weather is slowly warming up (I swear we've been going from balmy spring days, to sudden cold snaps for the last couple weeks), which means light knits and my favourite culottes. This outfit is so simple, and has been on rotation for basically all my lazy, but still need to look fashionable days – but to be honest, it's rather bland by itself. I wore something similar awhile back with a statement jacket, but this time I've opted for something a little more cozy and true to Uniqlo's minimalist style. 

Find out more about about how I accessorized such a simple look, and check out the giveaway below!

The Lace-Up Sweater (and a mini review of Zaful)

2016's trends of lace-up shirts and knits, and statement sleeves has followed me into the new year. This lace-up sweater from Zaful followed me back to Korea, was worn often in Vancouver (gotta love living out of a carry-on), and is still on weekly rotation here in Calgary.

The Feather Skirt

Happy New Year everyone! I've been loving playing with different textures in 2016, and I'm sure that will continue in 2017. To start – a new purchase I've wanted for a long time – a feather skirt!

It's taken a while to find the perfect one at the perfect price, but Club Monaco never lets me down during their Boxing Week sales.

Of course, I've already managed to rip a few feathers off during a new years party, so I'm a little wary about wearing it again. I promise it won't just be sitting in my closet though – I have a lot of outfit ideas for it, just no going to parties anymore. 

Even though it looks cold here, it really wasn't, so I couldn't help but drag a friend outside to take pictures of the falling snow. It's so pretty, right? And it's much more worthwhile to take pics in the snow than on a frigidly cold day with slush on the ground (if you follow me on Snapchat or Instagram, you know what I was doing today). I added a jacket and scarf just in case (I swear, my legs are the last to feel the cold) but I really didn't need them. I love the combination of leather jacket and soft feathers and wool. It adds a bit of structure and edge (otherwise known as streetstyle, right?) to an otherwise very soft and feminine outfit.

I'll be leaving for Korea again on Sunday (it's always good to start a new year on a 12 hour flight), and I'm so excited to see my friends again (and make them take pictures hehe) for a couple of weeks. I may also be thinking about going ash blonde while I'm there. Any thoughts?

Since it's a new year, I thought I'd ask you what you'd like to see me write about while I was there? Interesting cafes, shopping? More k-beauty related posts? Leave a comment for any requests or questions that I can answer!

Top 5 Tips for Styling an Oversized Jacket

Trying to channel my inner Olsen twin all bundled up for winter. This outfit is the result of Boxing Day sales and a lovely gift from my sister. I saw this jacket at H&M a few months ago, and decided my search for the perfect wool, camel jacket was over. But I looked at the price tag and balked – $99.00?! My experience with H&M jackets hasn't been the best, and because this wool is pretty loosely knit, I was worried it would pill too fast to make it worth it. (I'm lazy and hate dealing with pilling, and then the jacket is tossed to the back of my closet to be mourned next season.) So I put it down and walked away, set on a more fitted, 4x the price coat from Club Monaco

Pretty in Pink

Pantone announced its colour of the year for 2017, and I'll be missing Rose Quartz a ton. To be honest, I saw so many blush tones in the blogosphere that I never thought I'd get into it as much as I did. Alas, it's become a fast favourite and wardrobe staple of mine.

Pantone's Colour of the Year: Greenery

Pantone, color of the year, greenery

Pantone's colour of the year has been announced for 2017. Representing "new beginnings" and ultimately hope. Because after 2016, we need some more hope. Greenery is a fresh vibrant colour, reminiscent of new leaves in the spring and the lush outdoors. But is it too vibrant?
