Speed of Light

Coat: Thrifted
Dress: H&M
Necklace: Gift
Belt: Zara
Boots: Nine West

Days are going by at a crazy speed for me these days, I guess with Christmas right around the corner, work and a serious lack of sleep I have not been feeling myself at all lately and have not even attempted to do blogging as a result. I'm just hanging in there until Christmas break at this point!

Next year it won't be like this..... I hope....

Jewelry Boards

I made up a jewelry board the other weekend, my necklaces have just been all over the place lately and the big ones don't hang so well on my jewelry hangers so this board seemed like the perfect solution.

I used a remnant of fabric and covered a canvas I got from the dollar store, stapling it onto the canvas frame.

I grabbed some random buttons to use as the hooks for necklaces, I'm still on my button fetish.

And voila! I now have some space on my vanity and my necklaces are displayed quite prettily on the wall. Truthfully I could probably do a couple more of these with all the jewelry I have, but I have to compete for wall space with the beau and his cases of signed football jerseys!

Vest: Selfmade
Shirt: Thrifted
Corduroy Pants: Joe Fresh
Necklace & Earrings: Spruce Meadows Christmas Market
Booties: Nine West
Watch: Fossil

I do not get to hang out at the playground much these days so I enjoyed goofing around on the swing for these photos. 

Meanwhile, after the crazy cold weather at the mountains yesterday and waiting forever for the guys to catch up with me I got chilled and it has resulted in a cold, ick! Chicken soup and serious rest for me.

Over The Weekend

The beau as always needing to get in on the action!

First time out snowboarding this season and it couldn't have been a better day aside from the crazy cold weather but as a Canadian and a snowboarder I try not to pay much attention and just bundle up accordingly! 
I also got to go see the Mother Mother concert thanks to my little sister Jennifer, it was a lovely early Christmas present and one of the best concerts I've ever been to.

I hope you had as great a weekend as I did!

Classic Plus Leather

Jacket: Suzy Shier
Top: Thrifted
Leather Skirt: Thrifted
Pumps: Nine West
Necklace: Gift
Earrings: F21

Getting out for photos this time of year is increasingly difficult with the shortage of daylight hours, particularly when I'm trying to be discreet about it when at work too so sadly I'm using the back up backdrop of the surroundings of my community which aren't always too great. 

Do you have this problem? If so, what do you do about it?

Too Much Colour?

Jacket: F21
Dress: Selfmade
Tights: Suzy Shier
Boots: Bakers
Watch: Fossil
Necklace & Bracelet: Suzy Shier

I think this outfit is a great example of how much I really do enjoy colour, I would say I'm a "mood" dresser and on this particular day I was thinking "woohoo!" "It's a good day to be alive!" and many other happy and positive things. Know what I mean?

The work continues on my sisters winter coat reline.... Jeepers does she ever give me the fun projects!

Metallic Jeans

Behold my masterpiece! I've wanted metallic jeans for so long, and after searching and never finding a pair within my budget that fit, I took matters into my own hands! 

Happy Monday
