Santa Stole My Lady

H&M wool hat, Joe Fresh sweater, Bongo jeans, Coach purse, Nixon watch, Rachel Comey boots, Lazy Oaf "OK" necklace.

Bought this sweater this morning on a early morning grocery run with my Mom at Joe Fresh - a super warm wool sweater on sale for $14 is a win in my book when trying to survive these crazy cold Canadian winters.

This outfit is a pretty accurate representation of my winter uniform - crewneck sweater or long sleeve, black jeans, my rachel comey penpals or frye engineers, and limited accessories - usually just my nixon watch and some pearl studs. Something about winter really brings out my inner neutral-tone-loving-pseudo-minimalist.

In other news: I turn 21 in roughly one hour and fifty-five minutes. (Yeah that's right, I'm a Christmas baby.)

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! xx

Let It Shine

Shameless Aritzia fangirl speaking. Just took a look at their Holiday video and officially want everything.

If someone is willing to lend me a grand or two to spend there over the Holidays, I'd be down with that. Or you could just buy me everything shown below.

I'll make a proper holiday wish list (aka one that has more than just Aritzia on it) once I'm done with exams on Wednesday. Can you believe it's only 12 days til Christmas? So glad I finished the majority of my gift shopping in like, July. (Yeah, I'm one of those.)

"Those Are Some Cool Galaxy Pants."

American Apparel Circle Scarf and Fisherman Knit Sweater, H&M Sheer Button-up, Guess Coat, Black Milk Leggings, Cambridge Satchel Co. Satchel, Frye Engineer 12R Boots

Yesterday, I finally received my galaxy leggings in the mail from Black Milk. I love them, but they make me feel like a fifteen year old who hopped out of the Skins cast or something... I haven't decided if it's a good thing or not. In addition, I've always been a steadfast advocate of the belief that leggings are not pants but these have me **questioning everything** - mostly because they're so loud that they're impossible to style as tights. The excessive amount of stares and side-eye I got today while wearing these wasn't helping matters either.

tl;dr version: I'm in a very conflicting love affair with my "galaxy pants" (as one girl referred to them today.)

In other news, a fashion publication at my school called Muse Magazine printed a short piece on my little corner of the web. (Read here, page 35.) To the geniuses at Muse, thank you for actually taking the time to write about my abandoned dumpster baby of a fashion blog. It's much appreciated.

P.S. This music video is making my life.
