I actually just couldn't muster enough energy to put that much thought in my outfits the last 2 days or so, which I think makes it sound more worrisome because it meant I actually stepped out looking how I looked:p O well...

I've broken that cycle today, I think, I hope...

Gap Kids sweater, BR button-down shirt (BR Outlet),
BR jeans & belt,
Clarks desert boots (Winners)

If you think this is casual...

Nygard necklace (Sears)

... for my fave accessory of the season, the leopard scarf, again and again and again... teehee...

Esprit dress, H&M scarf,
tights & Aerosole boots (Winners),
Nygard cuff (Sears)

I just love how it adds a punch to an outfit every time I wear it. No?

Like today, for example, I needed to pull the brown and black together, so what better than this scarf that has brown and black. How about that? LOL

Plus, didn't want to look like I was going to a funeral, that would have just been really sad, eh?

Saturday, what comes next? Sunday!:p

Got over a cold, managed to avert a crisis at work, basically survived another week at work, whew!

Here's to the weekend, indeed!

Not Any Better

Didn't want to put much thought to my outfit yesterday; hence, no post yesterday. Thought today would be better. But was it?

My Color, Apparently

Feeling much better today, fortunately.

BR dress (gifted), Gap leggings,
Aerosole boots (Winners),

Nygard necklace & cuff (Sears),
BR bracelet
I don't usually gravitate towards this color when shopping for clothes. I still don't (in general). Ok, granted I have more than one or 2 other green item in my closet, you know, to cover the rainbow spectrum, but it's definitely not the dominant color in my closet... But every time I have something green on, I get compliments. Is green my color? So it seems.

Maybe it's just the dress, this time. Or not.

One thing I know, at least, is that I like whatever I have on:p

What to Wear? What to Wear?

All I knew was I had to be warm when I was getting ready this morning. So what did I wear? A spring-y jacket, a tee and oxford shoes.

Maybe it was the cold meds muddling my brain.

Gap jacket, H&M shirt,
BDG jeggings,
Le Crabe Rouge oxfords (Winners)

But forecast did call for mix of rain and snow, which turned out to be just rain, whew!

So this...

... could only be worn once I got to work, and to get there, I had to wear this...

Tretorn rainboots (Winners)
And although I may not have been thinking straight with my outfit, one thing I did get right is my outerwear. Thank god!

Esprit jacket (Ross Dress for Less, many many moons ago)
Cold, cold, go away!

How Do I Wear Thee?

Thanks to a new favorite blog, I came across a video of hers as well.

What better way to fully utilize and maximize a new favorite accessory, no?

I really don't know when it started, next thing I knew I found a fair share of these hanging in my closet.

Plus so much more, since then, scary enough...

Winter accessory they no longer are, for sure!

Rawr! Or Meow?

Wanted to wear a dress today even though it's cold. I figure seeing the sun comes out might make me forget how cold it is... yah, right!

H&M dress, Nygard necklace (Sears), Gap shirt
Nicole Miller leggings (Costco),
Aerosole boots (Winners)

(I wish I can tell you what's that piece of fabric doing on the floor:p)

TGIF, that's all imma say!

It honestly felt like I've done 2 weeks worth of work this week... sigh...

Tunic top & scarf (H&M),
American Eagle jeggings,

Nothing special. Just a Friday kinda' outfit...

Ooh, did I drop something? LOL

I Mean Business

Had an important meeting this morning. Important enough that it could impact the future. But if it doesn't, then not so, no? hehe

Esprit suit, H&M blouse, Gap belt,
A2 by Aerosole boots (Winners)

This takes me back to my previous work life, for sure, where this was practically de rigueur.

This blouse is, without a doubt, the season's favorite! I like it so much that to me, it goes with everything I have. Well, almost. I could be wrong. All I know is that I like it. HAH!

Blue Turtle

Today feels like winter for sure. I think we've hit the negative, with the wind chill, for the first time this season. Single-digit, at least, if that's any consolation. Brrrrr...

Sweater & belt (Ross Dress for Less),
BDG jeans (UO),
Aerosole boots (Winners)

Honestly, all I cared for was that I was warm. And yes, this was only the first layer.

Black and White

Sometimes, that's all there is to it, no shades of gray...

Esprit dress, BR tank, Line cardi (Winners),
belt (gift from other sis),
Urban Planet leggings



This dress was not quite so forgiving, so how to mask some areas? Why, a chunky cardi! Now nobody can tell if it's the cardi or not. LOL

Born boots (Winners)

Comfy, yes! Like, yes!

(White) Tuxedo Jacket

The more I'm seeing this, the more I'm getting obsessed with it, and I just cannot be!!! Hah! That's all I'm saying...

... which got me looking. Yes, just looking!

... and looking...

... until I have to stop. Stop!!! LOL

All of which, I realize, stems from my love for menswear-inspired clothing.

Gotta love online window-shopping!!!

Met friends for brunch today. It was a wet day.

That's our city for you. Rain, rain, rain! It's not lushly green for nothing. Hah!

Nevada plaid shirt (Sears),
BDG jeggings (UO),
Born boots & infinity scarf (Winners)

Have I mentioned before that I like plaid?:p

How much more Canadian can it get than this? Don't think it can. LOL

Jeggings (American Eagle)
DKNY belt (Ross Dress for Less)
Aerosole boots (Winners)

Have I mentioned before how much I love these pants? Hah!

This was yesterday's outfit, didn't quite have the energy to do anything else once I got home, let alone do a post. And this morning, I could barely get out of bed. Musta been more tired than I thought...

Thank god for the looong weekend. Thank god for Remembrance Day. Thank god for the people we have Remembrance Day for, to begin with. Lest we forget...

Stop the Insanity

Title's got nothing to do with my outfit, that's for sure.


Valentino jeans (Winners)
This is the only thing worth noting in today's "outfit". Thank god for back details, eh?

Converse low-cut leather Chucks

Yes, I went to work wearing these!

And when I'm in a mood that I am in today, I fall back on things that are completely familiar, something I've had for yearsssss and just feel comfortable, for one reason or the other...

Erring on the Side of, er, Boring(?)

Maybe it's  just me, but when pressed for time, I tend to reach for the boring stuff in my closet. I figure, I may not look or feel my best, but at least, I know I won't look like I got dressed with my eyes closed. Something safe, I suppose.

Dalia sweater (gift from mom),
DCC blouse & Arvida skirt (Winners),
A2 by Aerosole boots (Sears)

The funniest, well not that funny actually, part was that I woke up even on the earlier side, so... go figure...

(gift from other sis)

This was actually an original creation by other sis' jewelry designer friend. Now if only I can remember her name:o

Monochrome, the Rocker Way

Friday's outfit was primarily based on the fact that I knew I was going out, right after work. And since we can pretty much wear anything at work... fortunately...

Line chunky cardi & Born boots (Winners),
Pants (H&M),
shirt (gift from mom, from the Philippines)

Finally got to wear my faux leather pants, yay!:) Really liking the tough feel of the whole outfit...

Love, love, love this necklace. It's an inexpensive thing, really, but has quite a sentimental value for me. Ok, a lot of sentimental value! This will always remind me of a memorable trip with my sisters, and most importantly, my hubby:):):)

Basic Colors

Don't think I could have gone any more basic than this. In color, that is.

Nicole Miller cardi (Costco),
Beech Bros. blouse (Fairweather),
Gap pants, BR belt, Payless booties

Black, gray, brown, and white, if you count the dots.

The color wheel wasn't available, so...

Ode to a Previous Self

This is me in my previous work life, on a daily basis, for the most part. Not wearing a suit jacket after all.

Esprit blouse, Gap belt,
Dalia Collection pants (Costco),
Liz Claiborne loafers (Ross)

I'm really glad that now, this is just another option, if I want.

? necklace (Loehmanns, many many moons ago)

I can dress up, dress down, suit up, casual down... whatever I'm feeling for the day... niiice... glad to have a myriad of choices, I say.

Layer Up Some More

Today is definitely one of those nippy days. Getting ready this morning, I had this idea of color blocking.

Esprit shirt, DKNY belt (Ross for Less, many moons ago),
AE jeggings, Aerosole boots (Winners)

But then I remembered my gray sweater, and gray-orange combo always makes me smile, love!

The winter coat officially made its appearance for the season.

Lest we forget...

Am I ready for Mr. Frost, or what!
