Christmas Came Early

This morning, I ran out of the house in my pyjamas as soon as I found out that the package from my best friends has come! I was truly ecstatic & extremely grateful for having the friends that I do. This could not have come at a better time to cheer me up, and tear up, at the same time. Merci beaucoup mes meilleurs amis!

Nordstrom’s changeroom’s waiting room (got that?) is extremely posh! I suppose they have done right in making sure the husbands and boyfriends are waiting in comfort, or broke girlfriends like I.

Straying away from my usual black and loose fitting clothes results in this. For a more refined side of my style, I wore a bright jumper with a subtly coloured button down and a pair of classic jeans. To escape a rather ‘basic palette’, the addition of a statement necklace gives an interesting neckline. Brown, leather accessories are a must in any woman’s closet to finish off an outfit.

Mirror, Mirror

…on the wall, who’s the weirdest of them all? I can neither confirm nor deny that.


It was the last day of classes and as excited as I was to end an awful semester, it was also bittersweet. I am to miss the nicest professors & the warm ambiance of having formed a sort of family in my language courses. And even if this means the storm of finals is near, I am not one you will find in joggers despite the desire for utmost comfort. Then again, soft cardigans, veggie pizza & cute pets that give you kisses would do the trick; comfort in warmth, heart & stomach!

Notice that half of this grilled vegetable pizza has no cheese. And with that, I didn’t get just any regular coffee. The Irish did right in mixing coffee + whiskey.DSC04410

My Idea of Streetwear

As much as I love my button downs and girly dresses, I’m also a big fan of rompers! Most ladies find rompers inconvenient, but personally, I don’t. It is a fun and comfortable piece!
SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES Even though the romper itself has print, the addition of a differently printed cardigan does not clash because of the colours identical between them. To keep the romper and cardigan as point of interest, I kept it minimal in wearing simple, black accessories.SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES1) Elephant Romper: Angie | 2) Snake Printed Cardigan: Maison Scotch (similar here) | 3) Boots: Dolce Vita (similar here) | 4) Backpack: Vintage from Mom | 5) Round Sunglasses: Local Store in Calgary

Nautical Tendencies

My best friends and family are well aware of my obsession with blue and white. But who can resist this classic, nautical combo? To play up the simplicity in colours, I wore pieces that each have their own unique factor: the button down frayed at the bottom, the pants that have zippers down the side, and the flats with cute tassels. I accessorized with dark coloured pieces to balance out the relatively bright outfit.

Just kidding, I could only dream. Stay tuned for the next few days because I will be posting heavily of my travels!
