Leather midi

Banana Republic leather midi skirt and mini Prada bag Vancouver fashion blogger

I shot this look a few weeks back during a rare visit to the seaside town of White Rock. 

Despite driving through this area five days a week en route to work, coupled with the fact that I lived here for four years while attending high school, I never quite seem to make it down to the waterfront shops and pier. 

Maybe it's because I have such polarized opinions of this place — derived from many good, and also many bad experiences — from when I called it home. 

It's funny how our minds work. 

In any case, it's a pretty place that proves a perfect backdrop for a flirty leather skirt and fun cardigan-flannel combo. 

Happy Monday and thank you for stopping by!

Maroon midi

Le Chateau wool sweater and H&M midi skirt Vancouver fashion blogger
I've been in a serious sweater-and-pants sartorial rut lately. Not that I really mind. 

But, I decided to switch it up a bit — with a sweater and skirt combination. Not too different, but just different enough.

I'm still loving the ladylike silhouette of a midi skirt. It feel dainty and dressed up, without being too formal. Perfect for work ... and play! 

Happy Thursday and thank you for reading!

Knits + snakeskin

Banana Republic turtleneck sweater, Aritzia pants and Vince Camuto snakeskin Corral boots
I have literally been wearing this outfit on repeat lately. 

As soon as it's out of the washer, I'm wearing it again. I kid you not. 

Whether it's the cozy, waffle-knit turtleneck, or the casual-cool pants, I just can't get enough —which make this look perfect for those roll-outta-bed kind of mornings. 

Happy Tuesday and thanks for reading!
