Coat: vintage Hudson Bay (shop here) / Sweater: Zara (similar) / Jeans: Topshop /
Boots: Zara (similar) / Bag: JW Anderson / Beret: similar / Lipstick: Revlon "Cherry Blossom"

Wow, long time no post! My bad. But I really have been meaning to get some shots of this amazing vintage Hudson Bay coat since I got it for Christmas. Having visited Toronto so many times in my life, I knew how big the Hudson Bay store was but didn't start craving their iconic stripes until just a few months ago. I have no idea how my dad knew I'd been wanting one - I hadn't told him! - so I was surprised to see this as one of my Christmas presents. I'm hoping it was him knowing my style and not the Internet selling all my data and cookies to everyone...

It's my birthday weekend, hence the ~fun outing~ to get pizza. Here's hoping tomorrow's festivities include ice cream!!

Honestly I've never looked better!

Well, hello! This may be the longest break I've taken since I've started this blog. And without any notice...whoops! As always, it hasn't been intentional, but I can't decide if that makes it worse or better. Either way, here's me popping in!

I've started student teaching full time and it is as exciting as it is exhausting! I come home with all intentions to take outfit photos or at least put together a blog post, but I can barely make myself lunch for the next day. Phew! The whole not being a student thing anymore is taking some getting used to. And let me also say, for someone who loves clothes as I do, I have surprisingly few "work" outfits in my wardrobe. I find myself reaching for the same things every week. Let me tell you - my Loft dresses and Old Navy pants are in heavy rotation. 

As I get in the groove of my new day-to-day and as the weather (hopefully) improves, I hope to be back posting more regularly! Or at least once more in the next month...

I hope you all are having a lovely February!

2017 recap

Sunday, December 31, 2017


This year, I:

A busy year as usual, but again filled with traveling and spending time with my loved ones. I'm really glad that I have my blog/Instagram as a way to track the year, and remember all of the amazing experiences I was fortunate to have (especially in the garbage fire that 2017 was). And of course, I managed to get dressed throughout the year...














I thank you again, as always, for clicking your way to this humble blog of mine. I find it a silly thing to be doing with my life sometimes, but it's a lot of fun and going in to the new year, I think I could use that.
