The only thing that I dislike more than shopping for jeans is shopping for coats. I have really long arms, so it’s sometimes a struggle to find a coat that actually fits my arm length but isn’t too baggy or oversized ( and not in a cute way! ). I also hate how overly expensive trendy coats are. I’m down to spend money on a coat that will actually keep me warm in the -20 degree winters that we have, but trendy coats should NOT cost an arm and a leg. Especially when they don’t keep you warm most of the time! This fall I’ve been into Old Navy and Forever 21 for coats and jackets. They’re super reasonably priced, on trend, and are semi-warm and pretty practical, too. I recently picked up this suede coat from F21 and…

Layers on layers on layers – that is THE motto lately. Not only do I love layering sweaters and coats with scarves because it has been so annoyingly cold around here, I love this trend of layering feminine dresses over a shirt and pairing it with an oversized jacket for that little bit of added flair. Purchasing lacy dresses and camis is becoming my obsession. I love throwing them overtop of a basic shirt or even over a chunky knit if it happens to be one of those annoyingly cold days. This dress is one of my absolute FAVS. I will definitely be transitioning this piece from winter into spring and summer, too… because it’s just that good. The material is super silky and I love the little bit of lace at the top for a feminine…

OK so bomber jackets are like this really big thing and to be honest, like most trendy things ( see: chokers ), I was skeptical at first… I didn’t really know how to wear one, didn’t think I could pull one off and to be real – didn’t really know if I thought they were that cute or not. I kept seeing them in every single store, but they always seemed to a be a bit pricey for the quality and thickness. I usually hit up F21 or H&M for trendy pieces because I don’t mind not loving it if I only spent a bit on the piece… But all of the ones I was seeing in F21 and H&M were over $50/$60. I get that bomber jackets are considered outerwear, but I just couldn’t justify…

OK, so my obsession with over the knee boots is so real. I mean lately, I may have been totally into my Uggs, leggings and oversized sweatshirts ( eek! SO lazy ) but OTK boots are still really up there on my ‘I die‘ list. I’ve been loving this beautiful taupe coloured OTK boots a ton lately, more so than my black ones. Because the taupe ones actually stay up on my leg. The black ones slip so much and it is so dang annoying. They’re still cute though, I’ll give them that. Turtlenecks, cardigans, OTK boots and tights ( leggings, LOTS of wool leggings ) will be in my near future, when I’m not cozied up in oversized sweatshirts and Uggs… I’m working on so many posts to come. I’m wrapping up my first…

So, hi. Hello hello, welcome back. I don’t know who I’m welcoming back, maybe it’s you… maybe it’s me… maybe it’s me welcoming us both back. As you can tell, I took a little blog break and it was definitely an impromptu one. I was struggling during Blogtober and I fell off near the end of the month, but I had planned on posting a few times a week… and to be honest, I never got around to it. Sometimes I’m really in it and other times, I get really discouraged when it comes to this blog. I find that I get hyper-focused on one certain type of posts and then I do everything that I can to keep them flowing but I get bored. I feel like I’m on autopilot. & I also start…
