Mixing patterns.

Dress: Anthropologie
Sweater: c/o Shoppalu
Purse: Matt&Nat
Necklace: Erica Weiner
Belt: Vintage
Ring: Bitchin Beads
Bracelets: Assortment (CC Skye, Erica Weiner,etc)
When I went over to my parents the other day my Mom looked at this outfit and proclaimed I didn’t’ match. That is why I am here to tell you all that you can mix patterns. For one I feel leopard print is a neutral and can be mixed with anything. This cardigan is no exception to the rule. 
Are you comfortable mixing patterns? Do share?

Little Black Dress.

Dress: H&M
Necklace: Gift
Belt, Shoes & Tights: Joe Fresh
You can’t go wrong with a  little black dress. Especially if it reminds you of Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 (for a fraction of the cost).
Lets talk about how my lovely sister-in-law made me this beautiful necklace for Christmas! And how she took these pictures, and even edited them for me! Check out her photography company with my brother-in-law here!

Vintage Goodies.

Dress and Clutch: Vintage (New York)

Shoes: Badgley Mischka (similar here)
Earrings: Vintage
This outfit consists of my favourite vintage pieces that I have acquired over the years. This dress was a wonderful find in a flea market in New York years ago. It is a special dress that you can only pull out on certain occasions. Christmas and New Years Eve parties are the perfect occasion for such a dress!
Please check out the Bamboo Ballroom’s Facebook page where I just entered this look into a contest! I could win a fabulous prize! *Fingers crossed!*

Blouse: Joe Fresh
Cardigan: Joe Fresh
Pants: H&M
Necklaces: Bitchin Beads and Erica Weiner
Boots: Spring
Belt: Vintage
I waited a long time for this blouse to arrive at Joe Fresh. It was well worth the wait. I am thrilled to finally have it! The snakeskin print is a refreshing change from all my leopard print. Remember an animal print like this can be used as a neutral. They also have it in a yellow print which I am tempted to get too! It might just have to go on my Christmas wish list!

Party time.

Top: Joe Fresh
Pants: H&M
Necklace and Ring: Bitchin Beads
Shoes: Joe Fresh
It is that time of year where you are probably dashing around to festive parties. The go to look for a festive party is usually a dress of some type. This is another type of look if you aren’t feeling a dress. Throw on some bright pants, fancy shoes, a detailed blouse, and you are good to go! Drink some egg nog for me!

p.s- Check out where I was last weekend!

Tied up in bows.

Blouse: Forever 21
Sweater: Joe Fresh
Jeans: Esprit
Heels: Nine West
How delighted I was when I found this old Joe Fresh sweater tucked away in my winter clothes! Adorable and festive, just what I need! Don’t you love finding old pieces in your closet you forgot about? I sure do. This might be a sign I have too many clothes. I am sure my husband would agree. 
I hope everyone had a wonderful and festive weekend!

Canaidan Lumberjack Leather.

Top: Joe Fresh
Vest: Forever 21
Skirt: Daftbird
Tights: ?
Shoes: Sam Edelman
When I came out dressed like this my husband said something along the lines of how it was a Canadian lumberjack look mixed with leather. Hence the title.
My favourite part about this plaid shirt is how the cuffs are a different colour. Such a fun detail! 
Wearing this red plaid shirt makes me feel very festive! How do you dress to feel festive?

I hope you are enjoying your week!

Sweater: Industry
Shirt: Joe Fresh
Jeans: Joes
Boots: Wal-Mart
These pictures are from a  few weekends ago when it was absolutely freezing out. You can’t tell in these pictures but I am pretending to be warm and cozy. Dressing stylishly for the winter and the cold can be challenging. I suggest cute scarves, mitts, and lots of layers!
Oh I also made a new tumblr account where I have been posting pictures of inspiration and other goodies.

p.s- I am so glad monday is almost over and we are on our way to the rest of the week!
