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

Topshop trench, blush coat, winter fashion, pantone rose quartz, culottes, velvet bag

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'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?

Transitional Dressing: The Blanket Scarf

As the temperature drops the layers are starting to add up. It's actually -25ÂșC here this week, so this outfit really isn't even applicable anymore. No more bare legs for the season, that's for sure. I took this last week, on one of the last warmish days to attend a few craft fairs downtown (it's something my mom really got into this year).

The Pleated Midi

Pleated Midi Skirt, Fur Coat, Banff

Question: are you a mini or maxi girl? Or a midi girl?

 With winter coming, I've been slowly adding layers and length to my outfits. Cue the pleated midi skirt. Nothing I would have worn even a few months ago, but this gorgeous pink satin caught my eye on Asos. Sadly, I decided that since it "wasn't my style" and I was going to wait for a decent discount before buying it... and it sold out a few days later.
