Grey Furry Sweater


I love winter clothes for many reasons, one of them being the fact that there are so many textures and fabrics to play with. I have loved mixing this neoprene skirt with cozy knits this month. Another added texture in this outfit is my hair, which my hair stylist, Niki, actually micro-crimped before putting it in this bun. Micro-crimping creates the coolest fluffy texture that makes your hair so moldable and voluminous. She used something similar to this tool to create the effect.

Palling Around

A few weeks ago I went to spend the day with my friend Dani at Vocado, where she is a buyer. You may recognize her from posts back in the day (here and here, for example). I loved looking at their new pieces for fall and may have left with a few things myself (this and this, specifically).

Gift Guide: The Francophile


Gift Guide: The Francophile

So often while online shopping, I think, "Oh, this would make a great gift." All year, I've used secret Pinterest boards to keep track of these items, but I decided with the upcoming Christmas season to make them public - because if you're anything like me, come gift-giving season, you need all the inspiration you can get.
To make it easier, I decided to break the boards down by persona. If you head over to my Pinterest page, you'll find inspiration boards for all kinds of personalities. Today I've chosen to post a few of my favourite items from my favourite board:
The Francophile, and I'll periodically post items from the Gift Guides leading up to Christmas. I hope you'll find them helpful, and I hope you'll leave your Pinterest handle in the comments section, as well - I love finding new accounts to follow!

Rainy Day Sweater


Rainy Day Sweater

The simplest of outfits, best worn on rainy early afternoons, curled up indoors, drinking takeout coffee and listening to Simon & Garfunkel's Greatest Hits on vinyl next to a napping puppy. It's hard to hate Mondays when they're spent this pleasantly.

Wilfred Leather Leggings
