Before The Storm

I am so over winter right now. I feel cold and chilled all the time, my skin is dry and I'm longing for summer. I'm making a few vacation plans to escape here and there over the next few months, but warm weather can't come soon enough for my likings. Total #canadiangirlproblems, am I right?
I always get asked what my winter essentials are, and basically they come down to a warm jacket, lots of cozy scarves, heeled boots with a bit of traction and tights. I'm usually an opaque only kind of girl but patterned tights can be really fun. These ones are by Pink Beryl Essentials. I absolutely love subscription services (ShoeMint, StyleMint, Topbox, etc)... not only do you get little surprises in the mail every month, but for the most part, they're all super affordable. I really love Pink Beryl because you get two pairs of great quality tights in the mail every month for only $20.00. Do any of you subscribe to any monthly memberships? And if so, which? I'm always looking to try new ones.



Wearing: Style by Marina sweater (similar styles here and here), Pink Beryl Essentials Angela tights, vintage skirt (similar skirts here, here and here), Zara scarf and boots (similar styles here, here and here), Balenciaga bag (here and here). x E

  8. This is definitely one of my favourite looks of yours, although I feel like I keep saying that with every successive post I see! Great winter look, I'm so sick of winter as well...I'm hoping the mild weather will stick around and transition into spring soon.

  11. I've never heard of a tight monthly membership - so cool! :D I recently subscribed to a Graze box membership here in the UK, basically you get a box of healthy snacks and the website gives you a huge selection of which you rate with "like" or "don't send" etc. It's so fun !

  12. you look lovely as always, oh that mermaid hair!
    and I'm so with you, I can still see the snow from my window and I'm longing for those warm nights so much.
    on the other hand with the amount of papers I have to write it is possibly a good thing the sun isn't seducing me to come out to play yet.
