Friday Morning in the West Village


I spent the weekend in New York for work, and I know that it was a busy one, because I didn't have the chance to post about it - not even on Instagram Stories! It all feels like a bit of a whirlwind, but I was able to try some new restaurants (I'm still dreaming of the crab toast at ABC Kitchen), buy my husband's Christmas gift after an appointment on the Upper East Side, and make it home in time to spend Thanksgiving Monday curled up next to him on the couch.

End of Summer Style


Fall has finally arrived, and just in time. I was beginning to tire of my usually beloved collection of summer dresses and starting to dream of cozy knits and light layers. While things are still warm enough to go without a jacket, I'm breaking into my seasonal transition closet. I love this Club Monaco dress with bare legs right now, but have plans to wear it with knee-high burgundy boots in a few weeks, and opaque tights and black ankle boots when the snow comes.

Wedding Guest Style: What I Wore


Well, it's certainly been a while. Over the past few months, I've really gotten out of the habit of blogging (...obviously). Work gets crazy, and then travelling, married life, laundry... it all begins to pile up, and of course it's only natural to let the less urgent pastimes slide down the to-do list. But I've been receiving messages recently, and even meeting in person, online friends from the years when this space was called "chicheroin.blogspot.com" (yes, truly), and I've been reminded of the pre-Instagram community that was forged during the early blogging days. I know that time has passed; our attention spans are shorter, and smartphones have made it easier for anyone to be a blogger, or a microblogger, or not even need a blog at all - and this is a good thing. But I guess what I'm saying is, I was reminded where I came from - literally... I owe my career to this little blog. So I guess from time to time, for nostalgia's sake, I'm going to try to populate this space at an irregular (though hopefully slightly more frequent) pace.

A Hygge New Year


There's nothing like a cozy coat, especially when temperatures are dipping into the -20ยบ region like they are currently in Toronto. This coat has been all over my Instagram, particularly when I was travelling in Asia last month. It's incredibly light but super warm and roomy enough for layering, making it the perfect topper for Japanese winter and for cuddling up in on airplanes (is it just me, or are planes always unbearably freezing cold?). And yes, it's another Gap find - seriously, their outerwear selection is so on point this season (and almost always on sale - you can use the promo code 2018 for 40% off this week!). What can I say? There's a certain thrill in responding to a fellow editor's inquiry as to it's origins with: "If you can believe it, it's Gap!"
