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,

Hi everyone! I'm back from Toronto and would you believe it's been colder here than in TO?!  Unheard of, I tell you!  LOL  But in all seriousness, we did return to snow on the ground (typically when it snows in Vancouver, it doesn't stick), sub-zero temperatures and warnings of a 'major snowfall' on Thursday night.  The 'major snowfall' didn't happen, although it did snow.  Now that the weekend is here things are warming up and snow has turned to rain.  I pulled out my thicker sweaters to combat the cold and can assure you I did not walk to work in the above footwear!  I have a pair of raspberry-coloured Hunter rainboots (see here) that I can wear with boot socks for the short walk, however I do not recommend wearing Hunters for an extended period in snow - they are just not warm enough!  I have heard of these liners, which look promising and I am tempted to try them.  On the other hand, last year I was won over by duck boots and am now seriously contemplating an insulated pair!  If you have any recommendations, please let me know!  I am leaning towards these ones by Sperry, or these ones by Sperry for J.Crew.  I'm not impressed by the non-insulated review comment on the J.Crew ones though, and am curious if all Sperry boots are not insulated in the foot area?!

This weekend we purchased some replacement light strings for our previously pre-lit Christmas tree, and put the decorations on.  Unfortunately I accidentally bought LED bulbs, which aren't as warm in appearance as incandescent bulbs, so the tree doesn't quite have the same 'homey' vibe as I like ... but my desire to just have the tree 'done' outweighed my dislike for the LED bulbs!  Honestly, it's not a big deal.  It's festive in here, which is the whole idea!

Tomorrow is our office Christmas party - Monday is not a great night, I know!  But the food is always delicious and the Yankee Swap/White Elephant gift exchange is very entertaining!  It's not super dressy, so I am planning on wearing these jeansthese shoes, and a black lace bell-sleeved top from H&M that I can't find online - but this one is similar.  If I'm feeling ambitious (ie, go buy some ribbon), I'd like to do my hair like this, or in a lower pony like this, but with a bow.  So, we'll see!  What holiday parties do you have coming up?

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
