Hi everyone!

Here's a look at what I wore to work last week!

I'm writing this from our couch, wrapped in blankets, sun streaming in and Christmas music playing on the TV.  Our Christmas Tree is twinkling away in the corner, freshly wrapped presents underneath.  The only thing missing is a glass of eggnog and a fire! LOL!  Anyways, I'm totally getting into the holiday spirit over here and loving every minute of it!

Tomorrow night is my office holiday party and I'm planning on wearing this top with black skinny jeans and maybe these mules.  I didn't notice until I was putting this post together, but I wore a variation of stripes every day this week!  LOL whoops!  I guess I know what I like!

Yesterday T & I went shopping for snow pants because my family has rented a cabin at Mt. Baldy for the holidays!  We already have winter jackets, and I have a snowboard and boots that my parents keep in their garage, but somehow I don't have snow pants!  So we figured we'd better invest in some, and then we'll have them for future snow activities, too. Apparently there is a tubing hill at Cypress or Grouse so maybe we'll do that too this year!

We don't have much on the agenda for the rest of the weekend; last night we went to a friend's new place for tacos and today T's at a board game brunch.  I have to go out and get a White Elephant gift for my office party tomorrow night and then I think I'll do my nails and get into Season 2 of the The Crown!!

I hope you all have a great weekend!  As always, thank you for reading!

Hi everyone!

Here's a look at what I wore to work last week!

It was really dark in the mornings this week so apologies for some of the blurry images.  I would really love to have better, crisper images in general for my blog so I need to look into getting a better camera/lens/photographer.  If you have any tips, or know anyone in the Vancouver area, please let me know!!

If you have been following me on InstaStories, you may recognize the burgundy floral shift dress from the "incident" in Toronto!  I was trying the steam the dress using a regular iron (held vertically, pressing the steam button) but I got the iron too close to the fabric and it burned a hole in the dress!!  Luckily I brought a back-up dress to Toronto but was pretty disappointed as the dress was new and I hadn't worn it yet!  The hole is at the back of the dress so I figured if I threw on a vest, cardigan or blazer I can still wear it a few times!  I think it's cute and a great colour for Fall/Winter so I'll be happy if I can make it work a couple more times.  Sadly it's sold out in burgundy but still available in a black floral print!


The ribbed peplum sweater is new and was a surprise find in-store at Gap last weekend!  T & I needed to get out of the house but the weather was so terrible we didn't want to go outside ... so we decided to go to the mall!  LOL This sweater was 50% with the Black Friday sale still going on, and I also tried on and purchased this top from Aritzia that I think will be great for casual holiday parties (ie, dinner with friends and/or office party).  Another casual holiday top I purchased (online) is this beautiful tiered lace top from American Eagle.  American Eagle!  Who knew?!  I thought it looked great on Merrick and am planning on wearing it for Christmas dinner and possibly my work holiday party.


We are having an ugly sweater competition at work as well and surprisingly I don't have one of those so I ordered this one from Forever 21!  It's more of an 'ugly cute' sweater so I don't think I'll win, but at least I'll have an 'ugly Christmas sweater' to wear to any other events that require one in the future!  While browsing the F21 website I noticed this self-tie dress and this festive mock-wrap dress (sold out) so ordered them both to try as well :|


I also found the North Face parka that I wanted on sale at Sport Check (yay!), ordered this sweater and this necklace in white (sold out) from J.Crew, and got some Christmas shopping done for T, so overall I feel my Black Friday/Cyber Monday shopping was a success!


Did you buy anything exciting during the sales?!  Tell me in the comments below!

Hi everyone!  How are you?!

As usual, here's a look at what I wore to work last week!

Long-sleeve dresses are my favourite in the Winter because they are pretty much a whole outfit on their own!  Just throw on some tights, choose some shoes and maybe some jewelry and you're good to go!  Both of these dresses are from Old Navy last year, but very similar options are available this year.  I'm really liking this mock-neck swing dress; it looks like it's more of a sweater material and the burgundy colour is perfect for Winter!  And this dress in the black floral is #goals - too bad all the small sizes are sold out!!  It's funny, the first time I wore this grey dress I didn't love it because I thought it made me look pregnant, but the image blew up on Pinterest so it gave me the confidence to keep wearing it!  LOL I do think the heathered grey is quite casual so it would be perfect to wear on the weekend as well!  Also, it's been raining a lot here so I thought it would be fun to show you my pink Hunter rainboots!  I wear these on my walk to work and bring my shoes in my gym bag.

Tomorrow I head to Toronto for 4 days for work and just posted some of my outfit planning ideas on InstaStories so go check them out before they disappear!  I won't be taking outfit pics for the blog while I'm there since it's just too difficult to find a spot with good lighting and no passerbys around! LOL

I fly back to Vancouver on Thursday so happy American Thanksgiving to all of my readers in the US!  I hope you have a great long weekend!

Hi everyone!

Here's a look at what I wore to work last week.

Currently it's cold and rainy and I'm cozied up on our couch with my fuzzy robe and a fleece blanket.  Later today we are planning on going to see a double feature at the Imax Theatre in Richmond: Blade Runner and Thor.  Poor T woke up with a cold yesterday so I hope he feels better today (he's still sleeping) and can rally for the movies!  Afterwards we might go shopping at Richmond Centre or the Outlets by the airport.  Either would be fine with me, LOL!

I'm wearing a few new purchases here that are still in stock, so you can go buy them too, if you're interested!  First up is the floral wrap dress from Dynamite which I reviewed in my InstaStories when it first arrived.  It was the only one I kept out of the 4 I ordered!  The front wrap part is a little low so I safety-pinned it closed a little higher up, and paired it with this open-front boucle cardigan from Old Navy, which I ordered in the smallest available size, Petite XS.  It's thick and cozy and not too oversized on me, so we'll see how it holds up!  It also comes in a light grey/white colour that I really like, but all the small sizes are sold out online :(
The ankle boots are also new, but are the exact same as these taupe ones I've worn before, and very similar to this pair from a few years ago (omg recognize that white sweater and navy pants?!  LOL) . Low heel, super simple, comfortable and they go with everything.  They will also last the whole season if not longer, so totally worth the $55 IMO.
Also new is the mustard ruffle-sleeve shift dress, also from Old Navy.  I ordered a Petite S and it will probably fit a bit better once I wash it as it will shrink slightly (that was my plan based on this dress from last year).  It comes in a ton of different colours and patterns and I'm really coveting the grey floral print (but it's so similar to last year's dress! (ugh those pics are so blurry!)).  I will warn you this dress wrinkles very easily, as you can see from the pictures.  I steamed it before I put it on, then sat down and worked on the blog for about 20 minutes before getting up to take pictures and the front was totally wrinkled!

Next Sunday I head to Toronto for 4 days for work, so hopefully I'll be able to get my blog post for the week up on Saturday.

Well, that's all for now!  I hope you are having a great weekend!

Hi everyone!  Here's a look at what I wore to work last week!

Did you all have a good weekend?  It snowed here!!  Last week/this weekend was a busy one for us with Halloween, my parents in town, the Maori All Blacks vs. Canada rugby game, more family time, dinner at our place for 12 people, shopping, cleaning etc. etc.  

This week we have no after-work plans and lots of leftover chili to eat (no making dinner!) so it'll be be much more of a regular and relaxed week, followed by a long weekend!  Hooray!

I'm wearing three new purchases here; the striped bell-sleeve top from Old Navy, the cold-shoulder sweater from J.Crew, and these mules from Town Shoes.  I have to say, I'm really happy with all 3!

As far as my winter coat search goes, the J.Crew Factory City Coat in 00 was the winner vs the Petite 0 in terms of fit, but my mum and sister agreed that the Wilfred Cocoon Coat in Cigar is more beautiful in colour, style and fit.  It's also twice as expensive LOL but I think you get what you pay more.  I'll be keeping my eye on Craigslist and an Aritzia Swap page for a deal!  The North Face Arctic Parka in XS (vs S, vs any Aritzia parka) is also the winner, so I am trying to re-sell my Craigslist size S parka and hopefully(!) will find one on there in XS so I don't have to pay full price!

Hi everyone!  Happy Halloween!

This weekend was a short one as I worked on Saturday and only had Sunday off, and we had friends staying over as well.  Typically I write and get my blog posts ready on Saturday or Sunday morning, but after a bit of a late night on Saturday playing board games, T & I just wanted to chill and get into the second season of Stranger Things on Sunday!  (It's so good BTW)

This week is a busy one for us as well - last night we went out for a friend's birthday to Tavola (I ate so much it's disgusting) and tried to go to the Stanley Park Ghost Train, which is an annual tradition that I LOVE, but it was sold out!  SO we are going back tonight!  LOL!  It's the last night and I bought tickets in advance so no excuses!  Tomorrow night my parents fly into town; we are picking them up from the airport and they are staying with us for the night before they move into a hotel for Thurs-Sat.  Thursday we need to get groceries for the weekend, Friday we are going to the Maori All Blacks vs Canada Rugby game which my whole family is coming down for, Saturday I am going shopping with my sister and sister-in-law, and Saturday night we are having my fam over for dinner!  12 people eating in a 1 bedroom apartment ... not sure how we're going to make that work!  LOL!
Oh AND I need to go through all our Bali photos and make a slideshow for the fam to watch on Saturday!

Anyways, enough about that and on to the outfits!  I actually have been doing a TON of shopping (have you seen my InstaStories - I did a bunch of try-on videos which was really fun!) but am not wearing anything new in these outfits.  The navy boatneck top in the last outfit I have had forever but haven't worn in a long time ... now that's back in the rotation I have already worn it twice!  Funny how that happens, right?  That's why I have trouble with the closet clean-out philosophy to get rid of items you haven't worn in the past year - sometimes I just go through phases!  I have defintely worn the pink peplum top + striped cardigan combo before, and the floral Forever 21 dress + blazer combo is a classic as well.  I wish I had belted it or worn some jewelry though - it looks a little plain in the pics!  

Shopping-wise, I am keeping this cold-shoulder sweater from J.Crew, this dress from Dynamite (also just ordered this one and another one which isn't online anymore), this dress, this top and this top, this cardigan and these booties from Old Navy.  This cocoon coat from J.Crew Factory arrived and I love the colour and softness of it, but it was a bit big across the chest so I have ordered another size to try.  I also bought this North Face parka off someone on Craigslist but the Small is too big so I am have to go to the store to try on the XS.  All the online reviews said it ran small so I thought I would be safe!  I am also considering an Aritzia parka this year (instead of North Face, not in addition to!), so hopefully this weekend I'll be able to do some try-ons!

Anyways, thank you so much for reading and I hope to be back soon with my Monthly Outfit Roundup for October (even though it will be small)!
