As a child, I was absolutely obsessed with oxfords. I owned at least three pairs by the age of 12. I used to walk around the house in them all day, while trying not to crease the top of the shoe while a walked. This basically meant that I was waddling around the house in my super shiny new shoes all day and all night. I eventually got over wearing oxfords when I discovered heels as a teenager. =)

A few years ago, I decided that I again wanted to own a pair of oxfords that were somewhat reminiscent of the ones that I owned when I was younger. When I saw these Vince Maye Oxfords, I was pretty confident that these were “the ones”.

One of my favorite purchases from 2016 is this camel coat from Aritzia, that now appears to be sold out. Aritzia has just been killing it in the coat department this season.  And I actually purchased two coats late last year and have not regretted it for a minute. This particular coat is just the right color of camel that I was searching for, and as an added bonus, the collar can be buttoned up right at the top for those extra windy days when you want to be covered right to the chin. I’m so happy I can cross off another one of those “clas

Happy 2017

Happy new year, friends!

As you may have noticed, I been rather quiet lately. While I finally purchased a new camera to replace the old one that failed to turn on one day, the month of December proved to be too much for me to be able to balance the day job with pretty much anything else in life.

I admit, 2016 started rather slowly, and I was falling into that rut that I seem to be all too familiar with. However, by the end of the year, despite being super busy and super tired, I’m feeling pretty optimistic and looking forward to what 2017 brings.

My one aspiration for the new year? Just, do better. At everything. Including this blog. So on that note, I hope everyone has a healthy and happy 2017!

Off the Shoulder

I had been searching for a good quality cozy, off-the-shoulder sweater for a few months and I finally fount it in this AQUA cashmere sweater. I was a bit apprehensive trying it, because basically all kinds of wool makes me itch, but I had absolutely no problems with this. It is tunic length on me, but a little tucking in of the hem gives it a different look. Right now, this sweater is 25% off at Bloomingdales. It’s still rather pricey, but If you are looking for an off the shoulder sweater that isn’t made of acrylic or an itchy wool material, I absolutely recommend this.

Also a note about my most recent absence from the blog. While work has gotten [a lot more] chaotic, my camera recently turned into a brick, so I’m without a camera for the next little while until I can get a replacement–hopefully sooner rather than later! For now, I’ll have to dig into the archives and see what I can come up with.
