Feeling the Winter Blues

I know there is still snow on the ground (and small/large blizzards happening every week), and while it has been a great winter this year for outdoor activities, I'm just about ready to say goodbye to my bulky TNA coat, mitts and boots.


Lately I've been feeling the winter blues; there is nothing worse than getting dressed for a night out on the town and being surprised with 20 centimetres of snow. It really hit me yesterday and I knew I had to make a change... starting with my wardrobe. This week I will be getting rid of all the fall/winter shades in my closet and brightening it up with colour. Lots and lots of it.

Okay, enough with the moping... back to the style part of this post.

Considering how busy my daily schedule is with work, events and of course, making time for family and friends, I usually plan my outfits for the blog ahead of time and get them photographed (thanks Maria!) so they're ready for the month. A lot of times I don't even get a chance to publish some outfits for various reasons. Today I'm sharing two looks that I put together (and definitely wore) this season.

  1. Blue looks fantastic on you!!!

    So do you shoot all your photos for the month in a day? I usually only shoot a couple outfits (if even) a week as most of the time I'm too tired by the time I get home to take pics (I'm not brave like you, I do my shots indoors LOL!)

    1. Thanks Elaine!

      Yep, I shoot 4-5 outfits in the span of an hour or so. It works well for me because that way I plan content + what to wear ahead of time but can be annoying if the weather is constantly changing and the outfit doesn't really match it or w/e.

      I would totally do them indoors if I had the right space - but lighting and everything is so tricky!

  3. Loving both looks - the booties in the first look are so adorable. I also love pairing the casual chambray with that skirt- great combination. The second look is my go-to look - blazer, skinnies, boots- can't go wrong!

  4. You have such a bright smile for how much snow there is on the ground. I'm sure you'll get some color in your life soon.
