Photo Friday: Keeping Warm

New arrivals & a week that has consisted of keeping warm any way possible.  There are no rules on the amount of layers that can be worn at once when it comes to the final weeks of winter, so no holding back...

Layered in Lace

This coat has made me a serial rewearer. I've been trying to pair this lace tunic with anything & everything, creating some sort of routine to wrap up what I hope to be the last few weeks of winter...

Country Concert Prep

I've been hardcore cramming in an attempt to learn all of Garth Brooks' songs before March 6th.  Lucky for me, the outfit portion of the event is dilemma free.  I just ordered this Bandana necklace, which is perfect for the concert & I know I'll wear it a ton this summer...

The Elements

Braving the elements, all in the name of fashion.  A simplistic, albeit warm, outfit I tossed on for date night with the Mr. last Friday served as the perfect contrast against the stark falling snow...

With Flowers in Her Hair...

Crisp February afternoons lately.  Not pictured: piles & mounds of snow that now have no where else to go but up.  I haven't been into exposing my ears lately due to negative double digit temperatures, but enough is enough.  This outfit sort of fell around the decision to wear this headband...

Photo Friday: When -20C is the High

When -20C is the daily high, you really have no choice but to remain indoors.  We semi-celebrated Valentine's Day, completed several projects around the house, & enjoyed time with good friends over the long weekend.  Here's a few photos I thought I'd share...

The Mr.'s Vday surprise...
Chocolate love day-themed cupcakes
New lace tunic from asos that's already been out to good use...
Valentine's lunch + bevys at Moxie's (sunnies from F21)
Construction warrants pizza + cheese sticks for dinner...
New in from Zara
 Snacks + beers for a friendly gathering
Made the trek to Chipotle for chicken burritos
I love Panera's Frozen Mochas (& their colored straws)

Happy Weekend :)

Coming & Going

This week so far.  Having Monday off in lieu of the long weekend proved extremely productive.  However, the work week has been beyond busy to make up for the lost time.  I apologize for the tardiness of this post, please forgive me & enjoy...

New in from ASOS
Enjoyed a pint of Hobgoblin at Beertown the other night, so tasty...
Browsing at Crate & Barrel led to a pit stop at Panera in Mississauga...
Egg white 'muffins' & banana bread for breaky this week...

I Heart Pink

In all honesty, this Valentine's Day was less than ideal.  We spent the entire morning shoveling snow & only ventured out in the afternoon for a late lunch.  High winds, heavy snow, & -30C temps with the windchill hindered all pre-made plans.  I stubbornly braved the cold in this outfit, which only lasted a few hours thank goodness...

Photo Friday: Pre-Valentine's Day

There's been lots of red & pink floating around the house this week.  Although Valentine's Day isn't officially until tomorrow, I like the pre-celebration just as much as the actual day.  It's a long weekend up in my neck of the woods, which leaves time for several around the house projects & some fun...

Goodies from Target & Zehr's for a special someone...
