Prematurely Rushing Thru the Season

I was kinda' getting tired wearing pants lately, which in my line of work, means pretty much jeans. I couldn't even bring myself to grab some dress pants, you know, just to change it up a bit.

Gap jacket & shorts, H&M blouse,
Joe Fresh ballet flats
So I wore shorts instead. HAH!

Not necessarily the smartest choice, for a typical Vancouver winter day, ie, rainy day. Aw shucks!

BR ring
So out came the rain boots as well, to get me to and from work. There was one brief moment, nonetheless, when I thought I convinced myself that spring might just be around the corner... pfffftt... yah right!

More White

In the last few years, never really been a fan of white sweaters/knits. Not sure why. I guess it feels like too much of a blank canvas, for lack of better words.

Tristan sweater (hand-me-down from other sis),
Gap jeans, Aerosole boots (Winners)
Not anymore. Thanks to other sis, I now have a couple. Which I like very much, surprisingly.

Not sure if I'll be that rarin' to go add to the collection. But as it is, I think I've found a new favorite:p

Monday, Monday...

Short Over Long

Figuring out what to wear yesterday morning, couldn't keep the image of short over long out of my head, thanks to my sis and one of my fave blogs.

Simply Manakin Petite jacket (Winners),
Gap shirt, AE jeggings,
C'est Chic boots (Designer Depot)

Ok, I didn't have the moto jacket that they wore. And even if I did, it would not have been enough to keep me warm on its own, or it would have been to hot to wear all day at work... excuses, excuses...

So, I translated it the way it makes sense in my head (ok, relatively speaking... hehe) that's appropriate (again, relatively speaking) for work.

I love the details of this shirt. Funny enough, I don't think I've ever worn it by itself to really allow for the details to show, even in the summer! Go figure! So almost always, since it gets buried in the layers, I still end up wearing a necklace. Go figure! The ironic part is, I have another shirt, albeit with different details but same concept, that suffers from the same dilemma. Go figure!

Yay for another weekend!!!

Skip to my Lou

Didn't really set out to skip a day posting but I guess I did. Although I wasn't really planning to post an outfit yesterday, which meant I went to work wearing what I really shouldn't have *gasp*, but I did, so sue me, I thought I'd post an ideal outfit that I had in my head, but I didn't... O well...

Vamp top and Aerosole boots (Winners),
UO jeggings

Having kinda' busy days at work lately, but the good thing, with all the things I've gone thru' the couple of months before Christmas, busy days like what I'm going thru' now almost seem like a cake walk. Scary thought, I know...

Have to learn how to look stressed, I guess. HAH! Kidding!

necklace (gift from mom the Philippines)

Good news is TGIFT!!! (thank god it's Friday tomorrow!!! heehee... trying to see if this will catch on:p)

Sloppy, er, Slouchy, Boho

With all the rain we've been getting lately, I thought I'd be more inspired to wear colors, you know, just to counteract the effect of the gray weather, but apparently not.

Gap cardi, Esprit dress, Urban Planet leggings,
Tommy Hilfiger boots (Winners),
necklace (gift from mom from the Philippines)

Welll, at least it's not all black. Working my way towards the other end of the rainbow spectrum, slowly, but surely...

... maybe starting with the necklace, at least?


... love the buckles:)

I realize wearing the "biker" boots does not necessarily go with the feel of the outfit, but it was just pouring all day and need to keep my feet dry! What about rain boots? Oh yah, guess I can wear that too, eh?

Rainy Days and Mondays

A local anchor mentioned how we talk a lot about the weather this side of town. It's true!

Nicole Miller cardi, H&M shirt, BR belt, Gap jeans,
Born boots (Winners)

The weather seems to dictate how we prepare for our days, quite a bit, I must say. Why is that?

I suppose when it's a possibility to see snow, rain, and sun all in one day, what's a person to do but be ready for all 3, no?

... love the eggplant color!:p

Guess gotta' go with the flow... literally, sometimes, hah!

Rainy days and Mondays... is normal, this side of town... heehee...

Animal Print and Bright Color

This look is a top favorite, for sure!

H&M button-down shirt and scarf,
AE jeggings, Aerosole boots (Winners)

Another look for sure that I'm at my most comfort level.

Scarf? Check. Leopard print at that! Bright color? Check. Red at that! Boots? Check. Super comfy at that!

About to step out, my hands automatically reached out for one of my hoop earrings. Then I suddenly remembered I had this pair.

Guess earrings (The Bay?)

A pair which I've never worn, not sure why...

The weather has eased up, finally! Now, we're back to the Vancouver we're familiar with this time of the year, ie, mild, gray and damp:) Now, that I'm ok with... I think...:p

Thursday, 19 January 2012


With the temp dipping by the minute and exponentially (ok, I'm exaggerating, but still), kinda' getting tired of feeling like Ralphie's brother, Randy, in A Christmas Story, you know, in that scene when their mom was getting them all bundled up to go to school. Seriously! HAH!

I'd rather freeze, I thought. No, not really.

Ralph Lauren shirt (hand-me-down from mom),
Gap cardi, Nygard necklace (Sears?),
Aerosole boots (Winners)
How does one seriously get inspired to dress up in negative temp weather?!?!

Yoohoo, spring, when you coming?!?

What to Put On?

Couldn't decide what shoes boots to wear this morning, which is a rare thing for me. Heck, there are days that I usually have a shoes in mind but no outfit. Not today.

LIne cardi and Effetti Moda shirt (Winners),
BR belt, Gap cord legging
Turns out I had a reason. Don't ask me how it happened but I stepped out of our place not even looking out the window and as soon as I got out of the building, I realized it was snowing!!!

So, thanks to last minute decision, I left our place wearing my Patagonia boots, and thank god I did!!! HAH!

Black + Brown + Gray

There was a time when "they" said that you cannot combine black and brown in an outfit. But not anymore. I even say why not add gray too!:p

Grace jacket (Loehmanns, ancient), Esprit dress,
AE belt, Gap leggings,
Aerosole boots (Winners)

Well, ok, I don't even think the brown counts in this matter, since they were all in accessories.

Looking at how almost monotone this outfit is, I realize I need more prints in my life closet!!!

Snow Bunny

Literally! Well, not in a skiing kinda' way, but in a snow-y kinda' day. Hah!

Tristan sweater (hand-me-down from other sis),
AE jeans,
Patagonia boots (Winners)
The city got some snow today, that's for sure. But being Vancouver as it is, first came snow, then the sun came out, then some wet snow, then most of the snow melted, and now it's just cold:p

... did I just get photo bombed? again? ach!
Love the cozy feel of the sweater.

... and its interesting pattern...

Express turquoise necklace (from many moons ago)

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! NOT!!!

Ready for the Slopes

At least, I feel like I am anyways. Hah!

Gap puff jacket (Gap Outlet),
Nicole Miller legging (Costco),
Patagonia boots (Winners)

While our temp out here West is nowhere near as cold as that back East, I say it was cooooold nonetheless! Had a dentist appointment earlier in the day, wearing a different coat, but by the time I had to step out again by late afternoon, I knew I had to change the coat.

And I'm glad I did! I think there was a bit of hail at some point. But then again, could be just my eyes as I wasn't wearing my glasses. But I'm pretty sure it was hail, albeit tiny.

Now, I'm home, and I'm not moving an inch from the couch, curled under a blanket. *warm smile*

Blank Canvas

Or more like black canvas, I guess.

H&M dress, ? necklace (The Bay),
BR belt (BR Outlet),
tights and Aerosole boots (Winners)
Been looking for a long-sleeved dress since beginning of winter but haven't really found one that I like. That is, until after Christmas, after Boxing Day at that, and happened to see this dress on the Clearance section. Score!

Yah, yah, it's black. Big deal! And at this rate, I'm like, what, on my 3rd, 4th black dress now, but hey, I say you can never go wrong with an LBD, in whatever shape or style.

And best of all, especially with this dress, is that it's cut so simply I figure I can do anything with it.:)

And, yay, it's Friday!!! At last!!!

Blue Skies

While the rest of the family is enjoying mild temps back east, we are going thru actual winter temps, brrrr... Funny enough, it hasn't been raining that much, and it's been really sunny the last few days. What's up with that! But I'll take whatever sun comes our way...

Sutton Studio cashmere sweater (Bloomingdales),
H&M button-down shirt,
Larry Levine cropped trouser (Winners),
Aldo boots

Got a new fave with the necklace, yay!

gift from mom

Loving the details on the coat as well!

Old Navy coat

... too bad it's not reversible:p

Is it Friday yet?
