The Breakwater II

This is what I was wearing underneath my coat the day I went to the breakwater. I really love the colour of this sweater, and this whole ensemble in general. I think the pictures turned out marvelous; I love having my mom along to take them and the last picture is of her!

Have a beautiful day,
Kate

The Breakwater

My mom and I ventured to the breakwater yesterday and these pictures are the result. It turned into a beautiful day, so we were able to get some excellent shots. I just love the wall in the first picture.
The Chelsea boots I’m wearing are Cole Haan and I got them at Ingledew’s in Hillside mall. Basically the store was crawling with little old ladies because who else can afford $250 shoes? I guess I can too because I bought them, but I was sick and tired of buying $80 boots that would wear out in 6 months.
So I guess what I’m saying is spend the extra money to get some decent boots, because you’ll probably wind up wearing them a lot.

Have a beautiful day,

Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night

Okay. Okay. I know I’ve gone a little over board with the Chrismas themed ensembles, but I love a theme. Once for a pajama themed party I managed to find a onesie with skating cats on it at a thrift store in Sidney. Go big or go home. To be honest I thought I posted the last Christmas themed outfit yesterday, but I was browsing on my computer and found this little gem that I haven’t used yet. I think out of all my copious Christmas looks this is probably my favourite. What’s yours?

PS. ‘Twas the night before Christmas is definitely my favourite Christmas book/poem/song for sure.

Have a beautiful Christmas!

‘Twas the night before Christmas

Christmas is tomorrow! I’m really excited to see my extended family; there will be 15 people at Christmas dinner… I can’t remember the last time we were all together.
I got this sweater at a Sidney thrift store last year and have been in love with it the whole time.

Merry Christmas Everyone!

RED

Forever 21 had its grand opening in Victoria today. It was epic. My friend Lauren and I got there at 9:40 and the line snaked all around the building. We only had to wait 30-40 min to get in, which was bearable. While waiting in line I saw the most badass old man ever. He was driving a shiny black motorcycle with a side car. A SIDE CAR! He also had a magnificent handlebar mustache. ‘Nuff said.
Anyways, once we got into the store it was quite the gong show, but boy was it worth it.

The ensemble I’m wearing in today’s post doesn’t contain anything from Forever 21, but just wait. Just wait.

Have a beautiful day,
Kate
