They’re Back

With the addition of the new puppy to the family last year, I was forced to put away these leather pants, that is, if I ever hoped to wear them again in one piece. Now that Milo is a bit older, I feel much more confident about wearing these while he’s around without [too much] worry. And oh how I’ve missed them!

This J.Crew lambswool zip sweater is a perfect layering piece because of the extra side-zips. I reserve my full review until after I wash this, but so far, I just love it. J.Crew has 30% off all full-price styles and 40% off all sale styles until tonight with the code WEEKENDPLANS. It’s a great opportunity to pick up a few things! A few of the colors in the petite sizing of this sweater is on sale as well!

BTW, Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians!! Today is a just a special reminder that no matter how hard things get, there is always something to be thankful for!

Torn up

I’m trying to lighten up on the colors now that spring is slowly making an appearance, but it’s still been so chilly, I just want to run back to my blacks. Hence:

 Veda Max Leather Jacket / C by Bloomingdale’s Cashmere Crewneck Sweater / Gap Essential Mini-Stripe Crew Tee / Zara Ripped Jeans / Aldo Caling Rings / Vince Blair 5 Sneakers /  3.1 Phillip Lim 31 Minute Medium Clutch

I’ve been on the hunt for a destroyed pair of denim for quite a while now, but the pairs I really wanted either sold out because I trying to find them on super sale but were so popular that I missed out, or, it just ended up not being quite right. I saw these jeans on the Zara website and I was immediately intrigued by them. I’ve never much luck with Zara pants in the past, but by the time I had decided I wanted to try them anyway, they were OOS online. Figures. They were even quite elusive in-store week after week, but finally, after months of stalking them, I snagged myself a pair online when it was re-stocked.

I’m not usually a fan of super stretchy “denim”, but these just look amazing on the legs. I wasn’t expecting them to fit so snugly, but they do!  The one thing I would change if I could would be to make the rise a bit lower. Too close to my belly button and my non-existent hips are much more noticeable. If you like mid-rise denim, these are perfect! Despite the rise being a bit higher than my personal preference, I see myself wearing these non-stop on the weekends for the next while. I can’t wait!

I’m going through this phase where all the blog photos I’m taking are just terrible. If you are a fellow blogger that takes your own photos, I’m sure you can relate. There are days when no matter how many photos you take, it is impossible to find even just one good one. So if you are looking through my posts lately and are thinking, WTH is wrong with these pictures? So now you know. Despite the photos being sub-par, I’ve decided to post them anyway, or it may be weeks before you see another post. Yeah, sorry about that.
