Hi everyone!  How was your week?

Mine was pretty good, nothing too exciting.  I managed to get in three workouts (Body Pump, Yoga and a class at Movement 108 (via Class Pass)), made some granola (this recipe is my go-to base, I love how little sugar and oil it has!), finally watched the Globes, and did some grocery shopping.

This plaid shirt and these booties showed up in the mail from Old Navy.  I was excited to get this darker coloured plaid top, it's a good fit for the winter season without being too festive.  And it was ridiculously cheap, like $7 or something crazy.  I saw these booties and just knew they would be great.  They aren't even something I've had on my wishlist but I've seen a lot of people wearing and loving a low-heeled taupe bootie so I think they'll be pretty versatile.  Especially since my black booties from Steve Madden have a higher heel, so I am less likely to wearing them anywhere other than work.  The booties were old out online in Canada earlier this week, but are now back in stock!  I am also interested in these sueded peep-toe booties which are available on the US site.  I saw them in stores last year or the year before but didn't pull the trigger and couldn't seem to get the online, so this year I am seriously considering them!  I need to take stock of my spring/summer shoe situation though first to see what I really need!  Typically I kind of wait until the new season starts, to see what I am wearing and what I might need, but then by the time I figure that out and do all the research to get the best deals, etc - the season is halfway over!  LOL okay not really but you get the idea.  So this year I am trying to look ahead and am planning my spring shopping now, so that I'm ready when the warmth finally hits!  Follow my Pinterest to see what I'm planning!

As always, thank you for reading!

Hi everyone!  Here's a look at what I wore to the first week of work in 2017!

A couple of items here are new - this top from Old Navy, this cardigan from Gap and these flats from Aldo, all of which I purchased over the holiday break.  Actually, the Aldo shoes I ordered online just before the break as they were 50% off - only $37.50!  My black ones are looking a little tired unfortunately so I may need to order another pair as well.  The leather is VERY soft and supple, which I think is why they have worn, or at least look worn, after only a short while.

In other news .... we are going to COACHELLA!!!  We are SO SO excited!!!  It was a very last minute decision, as I'm sure it must be for most people when they announce the lineup the day before tickets go on sale (so annoying!).  BUT we pulled the trigger and I know it will be a blast.  T and I love music festivals, we went to Sasquatch! in 2006 - the first year we moved to Vancouver - and Pemberton in 2008 when Jay-Z and Coldplay were headliners.  Both were amazing experiences and we can't wait for this new adventure in April!  I have already started a Pinterest board for festival outfit ideas!

Are you all watching the Golden Globes tonight?  We don't have cable so I don't think we'll be able to watch it until tomorrow night - hopefully I don't get too many spoilers tomorrow! - but will be sure to be checking out what all the celebs are wearing on the red carpet, online!

As always, thank you for reading!


Monthly Outfit Roundup: December

Jules in Flats - December 2016 Monthly Outfit Roundup


Hi everyone!  Happy New Year!!!!

What did you all get up to last night?  A fun night out or in?  I hope you were all safe and happy and are enjoying a relaxing start to 2017!  We picked my parents up from the airport last night at 9:30pm - their flight was delayed by 1.5 hours because of all of the snow that we had here yesterday - and took them for dinner at The Flying Pig.  We rang in the New Year there and then took them back to the airport for their 6am flight to San Francisco!  They are spending today there before heading for Auckland, New Zealand.  The next time we will see them will be in April!

As I mentioned in my last post, I have been sick for the past 4 days or so, and so have really been spending a lot of time watching tv.  I completed The Crown, The Fall Season 3, started on Medicis (they were big art patrons so I learned a lot about them in school and find the show very interesting) and luckily was able to download a bunch of Fixer Upper and Flip or Flop episodes! hehe

I have been doing quite a bit of online "window shopping" as well.  These Sperrys have been in my cart for a couple of days, I just can't seem to pull the trigger yet.  They are full price, and I will have to wait for them to ship.  Whereas I might get lucky in-person with a boxing week or end of year sale, and then I'd have them right away!  That would, of course, require me to actually go outside!  lol

Anyways, here is my monthly outfit roundup for December!

Hi everyone!  Did you have a great holiday?! 

We are back from visiting my family in the snowy Okanagan and are happy to have another 6 days off before we have to go back to work!  We had grand plans of seeing friends and family in town this week, doing winter activities and boxing week shopping, but we are both sick!  Ughhhhhh T actually got sick the night before we left for vacation and I didn't know if he was going to be able to make it on the 5-hour drive (fever, chills, that sort of thing) but he rallied and we made it!  That night (the 23rd) we stayed at the cutest cabin on Mt. Baldy, our local ski resort, with my brother and his wife.  The next day, my brother came down with a cold!  T had a cold about 2 weeks ago and I didn't catch it, in fact I can't remember the last time I was sick, so I was feeling pretty confident that my immune system could keep up.  Well, I blame it on the not exercising and not eating as healthily as I could (less fruits and veggies, more homemade white buns with butter!), and two days later I end up sick as well!  So, we may be doing more hibernating than socializing this week, but I am grateful that we have the time off to be able to do so.

T and I decided to go easy on the presents this year, as I convinced him what we really needed, rather than superfluous gifts, was a new computer.  So I am writing to you from our new 15" Macbook Pro.  It's gorgeous!  Anyways, I hope you all had (or are still having!) a wonderful holiday, and here is a look at what I wore to the last week of work in December!  I should be back on the weekend with my monthly outfit roundup for December, as well.

Hi everyone! How was your week?  Mine was good.  I found some red ribbon and did my hair in a ponytail with a bow like I mentioned last week (see here) for our Christmas party and it was a hit!  I felt very festive and am considering a similar hairstyle for Christmas dinner :)
We watched The Voice finale (will Blake ever lose?!), the Survivor finale (so good - and a tearjerker!), T and I each had another holiday party to go to solo, and on the weekend we watched A Muppet Christmas Carol, Home Alone, and went out to see the new Star Wars movie, Rogue One (so good!).
As the Vancouver "Snowmagedden" saga continued, I also continued to wear my thickest and coziest knits.  On Sunday I work the above cream turtleneck with jeans and the red scarf for a fun casual look to see Rogue One.  I know it's not really the time of year for it, but I have been doing some shopping for myself.  I didn't do any at Black Friday, or really at all in November, and our family does Secret Santa so I only have to buy one present (other than for T).  What can I say - I am taking advantage of the sales / sizes in stock and free shipping promos!  I purchased this dress from Aritzia at an unheard of 50% off.  It's a timeless style (I have it in another print - see here) that will look great in winter with tights and black shoes or boots, and also with bare legs and a nude shoe in the spring and summer.  My beloved Bazovia loafers from Aldo were also 50% off in a nude and cognac colour.  Nude flats go with everything and my current pair are looking (and feeling) worse for wear after wearing them in a rainstorm in Toronto ...  Also, after discussing the Sperry winter boots last week, I pulled the trigger on these ones from Native.  Native is a local Vancouver company and two of my gal pals from work have the same pair.  They are fleece-lined all the way through, and they should get here by Friday, in time for my trip to the snowy Okanagan.  Fingers crossed!

This will be my last post before the holidays, although I will be back before the New Year for a look at what I'm wearing this week, as well as my Monthly Outfit Roundup for December.  But wherever you are and whatever you are doing this holiday season, I hope you are filled with joy and love!!

My heartfelt thanks for following along with me,
