What’s In in Outerwear

Being in a professional program, sometimes I have to sacrifice warmth for style or “business appropriate attire”. On crappy days where the weather dips below freezing and the rain can’t decide if it wants to be snow or not, I am always tempted to grab my North Face parka that still has my ski tags…

Foggy Sunday

Yesterday was unbelievably foggy, like Gotham city level foggy or British country side in Atonement foggy. It was nice because I was stuck inside for most of the day studying. I did go out for a coffee break though and it was unseasonably warm out. Warm enough that freezing cold me didn’t need a coat….

Winter Coats

Unfortunately it is still winter. I am one of those people that after the Christmas season is done, I am ready for winter to bid adieu and make way for spring. To my dismay, this never seems to be the case (remember I do live in Canada AKA in an igloo). I am also chronically cold…

Challenge

So, my being in the MBA program forced me out a job and my bank account has shriveled up in response to no cash inflow and lots of cash outflow from the holiday gift buying for others (and holiday sale shopping for myself). I have decided to challenge myself to not spending money on anything…

Back to Business (School)

In case anyone hasn’t read my immensely interesting “About Me” page, which does not attract as much traffic as one might think, I am in business school. Actually, to be more specific I am in my Masters of Business Administration. Being in this program requires a semi-strict dress code, semi strict because we can be…

Golden Globes

Wowza. The fashion last night was so en pointe. I loved that all the celebrities brought their A-game from head to toe with so many different colours and embellishments, it was seriously beautiful. There were some bold trends that really stuck out: yellow, pink tones, black and white to mention a few. Some of my…

Dress Down Button Up

Today was a very special day- my boyfriend and I went looking at engagement rings. I wanted to look put together, but also I wanted to be warm and comfortable since it is still very cold. Oval, princess, emerald, and on and on. It is pretty exhausting looking, but we were able to narrow down…

Faux Fur Pas

Fur is huge right now. Every celebrity and runway seems to be plastered with furs whether it is a coat or tiny accessory to tack onto a key chain. I can’t lie, I see the appeal and lust after the fur pieces because they are absolutely exquisite and look so warm (major importance factor for…

Best colour ever

So, I was supposed to go to Niagra Falls today, but due to unforeseen circumstances it did not happen. Instead my boyfriend and I went to Ann Arbor, Michigan; we visited the University of Michigan campus (it was amazing, but super cold). After a short tour of the quad and taking heat breaks in various…

Scarf Transitions

Scarves are the best accessory. In the winter, they keep us warm; in the summer, they add pops of colour or pattern to any outfit. Personally, I hoard scarves of every material and design- I even request scarves as a souvenir whenever friends go abroad. If you do not have a billion scarves or are…

New Year’s Resolution

Welcome to my New Year’s Resolution. After a busy holiday season including many pairs of nylons and too many sequins to count, a nice casual outfit founded in classics just feels right. Light jeans in winter probably break some fashion rule, but I march to the beat of my own drum. My straight hair is the…
