Winter Warmth

For these dreary days of winter I dug out one of my favorite (and warmest) sweaters which I’ve owned for almost ten years now. I love the emerald green shade and the boat neck cut. I paired it with a necklace from my BFF (there’s actually a little tiny crab in there).

But I’m not totally stuck in a winter rut because a few days earlier I braved the cold to go out for fancy pants drinks at a posh bar for a friend’s birthday in this awesome little dress that I won in a giveaway from the fabulous Closet Fashionista. I paired it with a thrifted velvet bolero (and shorts underneath because it's a pretty short dress) that I got at one of my favorite thrift/vintage shops in Edmonton and was good to go!

I’ve also got spring on the brain (which is kind of odd for me because I actually really like winter and cold weather in general) and have been coveting these cute little numbers from ModCloth. But I’m on a self-imposed shopping ban until my birthday in April so dreaming of them will be all that I’ll do.

Love the way you wore the dress with the Velvet bolero ... great outfit for a night out with the girls.
Love the purple/blue "Keeping Current Dress"
Spring is almost here and summer right after and all these three are perfect for both.

I really love this necklace. They are so neat with these little arthropods inside. I've got one with a tiny scorpion inside because I am a scorpio.

I also love your sweater. Mainly for the colour and also for the boat neck because I am a huge fan of this kind of neckline.

Look forward to hearing from you

That's a gorgeous dress you won in Closet Fashionista's giveaway! And green is a nice color on you.

I definitely need more classy and professional looking clothes, in general. Every time I get on your blog, you are dressed so well and so professionally that it makes me realize just how much of a streetwalker/hooker/whore/slut I must appear when I go to school.
Okay, not really, but it's definitely not as professional as you.

... That whole comment just made me look bad.
Oh, well.
