Yellow Knit

You can actually see the dusting of snow that fell the other day in these pictures. It’s quite exciting stuff if you live in Victoria, because it hardly ever snows here. Generally I like it that way, but if it did snow I’d get some gorgeous pictures.
I got this coat from a local secondhand store last year and wear it all the time. Hoods come in handy in the Victoria rain and it’s my only coat with one.
Today I’m off to have coffee with a friend to discuss books and hopefully I’ll be able to finish my Christmas shopping!

Have a beautiful day,
Kate

Festive

Another slightly festive ensemble. What can I say? Christmas is an exciting time of year, but I still haven’t finished my Christmas shopping. Please, please wish me luck. This blazer is probably one of my best thrift store finds ever, it fits perfectly and is just the right shade of red.

Candy cane cheesecake

I went out for dinner last night and for dessert I had candy cane cheesecake! It was a delicious minty fresh explosion of awesomeness. I have resurrected my berry crown for this ensemble. The crown is literally just a berry wreath that I bought at Michael’s, then plopped on my head. Let’s be honest, flower crowns are too mainstream now. For realz.

Have a beautiful day,

Michigan left

These are the pictures that weren’t used for my Eiffel tower photoshop assignment. They’re in colour, so I think you can see the details of the outfit better.
It snowed in Victoria last night, but it has already melted – thank goodness, because I can’t drive in the snow. I guess I’m not a true Canadian.

Gonna get my bricks out in the sticks

I just watched the season finale of Homeland. It was pretty crazy. I highly recommend watching it if you like suspenseful and mysterious TV shows.
This outfit, however, contains my paint splattered Mango pants I got in Las Vegas in the summer. I dressed them down with my oversized denim shirt and flats because I don’t have anywhere super fancy to wear them yet. This is my third look with this shirt and I hope you’re not bored with it yet. I just wanted to show how versatile an oversized denim shirt can be.
