Being literally -40 degrees celcius with the windchill makes it impossible to wear anything cute, like these long ankle grazing skirts. Mine have basically been collecting dust in my closet, since under no circumstances is my skin going to be exposed. Until you have actually been to Winnipeg to experience how cold -40 really is, you will never imagine! Maybe tomorrow I will put on a brave face, layer on some leggings, and opt for a cute skirt. We'll see how long I last! I really love the sheer one (1st photo), but I would for sure die.

After a long and miserable day at school, I decided I would treat myself to some goodies. It's friday, I made it through another week - hell, I deserved it! Also, I got in a pretty bad car accident yesterday leaving me with some severe whiplash.. not fun.. So hell yeah I deserved it! I rode down to osbourne where I picked up a wonderful bracelet and double-wrap belt as well as a new pair of booties, leggings (these are so amazing) and feather head piece/necklace. After this, I treated myself again to a chocolate cupcake at the Cupcake Corner, then headed to Urban Barn. I've been looking for a clear, acrylic occasional chair for some time now and I saw on their website that they had a really gorgeous one, so I had to get!

I need to shop, BAD. It's been way too long. But I am dead broke. Being in school full time really doesn't allow me to make $$$. Value Village here I come! I always find something I can work with. I'm dying for a long white smoking jacket, and a pair of lightwashed, flared jeans (which I will most likely splurge on, elsewhere.) I always pay more for my denim. Oh and SHOES! I want/need more boots, platforms, clogs, peeptoes (cute with socks)..etc. I have an amazingly cute sock/stocking collection worth showing off! Especially before the snow comes. Let's hope this isn't anytime too soon!

With my sister recently moving into my house, and with a new season fastly approaching, I've been thinking alot about re-decorating. I despise tacky "seasonal" decor but I am in love with playing with natural, woodsy textiles, earth tones and simple patterns. I love these ideas, they really have inspired me to do something new! Now to find the time...
