Singing In The Rain, In a Leopard Coat //

Wednesday, 26 November 2014

Jacket: The Button Box (similarsimilar) | Playsuit: maccs | Sunnies: maccs | Tights: Forever21 | Handbag: Marc by Marc Jacobs | Watch: Movado | Bracelet: Stella&Dot

First of all, sorry for the photos being a touch grainy.. shooting in the rain isn't as easy as we thought! But oh em gee how amazing is this faux fur leopard cropped coat?! I am seriously obsessed. I first spotted it when Danny and I popped into one of CFB's stockists - The Button Box, oh they have such treasures there! The owner happened to be wearing the jacket and it just looked so gorgeous I knew I had to have it. If you're in the Chilliwack area, you must pop into The Button Box, especially now when it is gorgeously decorated for the holidays. This jacket looks so amazing with black so I paired it with a super versatile playsuit from maccs, simple sunnies and a classic handbag. I can't wait to take this look into night time with a bit of a bolder lip and some serious heels!

Holiday Wishlist #1 //

Friday, 21 November 2014


I don't know about you but I am SO excited for the holidays. It seems the Christmas season comes earlier and earlier every year, and every year I try to hold off my merriment until a reasonable time into the season, however, this year, I am all for it! Decking the halls and fa-la-la-la-la-ing all the way through November into December. That's right, I'm that dreaded person that already has their tree up, stockings hung, and Christmas music echoing through the house. Therefore, I obviously had to put a little wish list together, I have been an angel all year after all. Also, since Danny and I (with saving for a house and all) have been on a super tight spending budget, I have quite the list indeed. I am completely swooning over all of the gorgeous pieces above, and am keeping my fingers crossed that Danny Santa will be watching my instagram to see what I'd love to have underneath the tree this year - here's hoping!

Keeping Warm In A Pullover //

Wednesday, 19 November 2014




Pullover: Cake For Breakfast | Coat: H&M(old) similar | Leggings: Cotton On(old) similar | Sunnies: Rayban | Handbag: 3.1 Phillip Lim(old) similar | Boots: Zara(old) similar | Toque: Topshop

It has been so cold in Vancouver lately and all I want to do is curl up in warm pullovers. This pullover from our shop has to be the comfiest one I've ever had - it's made of a terry material which makes it hang nicely and perfect for layering! I paired it with an old coat from H&M but you can snag a similar one from maccs! I met up with Danny in Whiterock for lunch when we decided to take some outfit snaps. While getting out of our car we ran into a lovely lady who Danny had worked with while building her house, Susan, she has the most AMAZING abode, all white exterior with pillars, pink antler chandeliers, and pink floors! She even gave us a tour inside which was on another level. If you're ever in the neighbourhood (Whiterock strip) you must at least drive by, especially around Christmas time - she's so festive!

Winter Florals //

Monday, 17 November 2014

Coat: maccs | Playsuit: maccs | Sunnies: maccs | Tights: Forever21 | Scarf: H&M(old) similar | Boots: Zara(old) similar | Handbag: 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target(old) similar | Polish: Essie 

Remember that time I did an outfit post.. like four months ago.. well here we are again!! I have always wanted to be able to do consistent outfit posts for my blog, however, I continually let my super self conscious side get the best of me. This past weekend, I was determined to get some snaps of a few gorgeous pieces from maccs. My husband and I decided to go shooting at High street mall, which, once I got over my fears was so much fun! We had people walking by, no doubt wondering what we were doing, but it was so great having Danny as my photographer, he got some really great shots! So stay tuned, because I think I'm hooked - I can't wait to show you more fab outfits! 

PS. I thought my hubby's outfit looked spot on as well, so I decided to take some snaps of him ;)
Cardi: H&M(old) similar | T-shirt: Nordstrom | Pants: Zanerobe | Shoes: Vans | Toque: H&M(old) similar
