Silver Lining

I joined Kate for another Sunday photo session, and threw an outfit together on a whim, outlining a standard look of mine: black with a touch of bling. As you are probably aware, Canada can be cold. Today was one of those days that was so insanely beautiful through a window, with bleaching sun and glistening snow adorning the streets. Outside though: different story. I still had numb fingers inside this warehouse nook. Thank god for it, though. Canadian Winter blogging can be a challenging hobby, guys. 



I have come to realize that this skirt goes with everything. It is like the dog or cat that I never had: always there for me, hiding under my bed at times, and cozying up to me when I feel lost and confused. It seems to fall into an outfit perfectly, no matter what you pair it with, and as Kate said, "it has volume AND simplicity". Perhaps the most perfect black skirt. I realize that the J. Crew earrings are repeats as well, but I just can't stop wearing them.  This is not their last appearance, and I hope that's okay. 



I picked up this tunic for its sequin pocket and first paired it with an olive military jacket during warmer Fall days. I really enjoy the gauzy white portion that comes out at the bottom. I'm sort of in love with floaty layers, and find it beneficial to create shapes and volume on a 5'3"ish stature. Kate did a great job making me look tall in these (for me), though, and I absolutely love it! 



(Tunic: Esley, Skirt: Mexx, Earrings: J. Crew, Headband: AWear, Shoes: Aldo)



Have the very best Monday, everyone.  Thank you for reading.

I don't know how you ladies manage in the Canadian winter - I emigrated as soon as I could only to be able to wear decent shoes in the wintertime! Kudos to you for braving the brisk fresh air!!

Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
losing many months of hard work due to no backup.
Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?

Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than
just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and all.
But think about if you added some great pictures or videos
to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could definitely
be one of the most beneficial in its niche. Fantastic blog!

Its like you read my mind! You seem to know a lot about
this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I believe
that you simply can do with a few p.c. to pressure the message house a little
bit, but instead of that, this is fantastic blog. A great read.
I'll definitely be back.
