Jacket: Gift, Shirt: Value Village $5, Jeans: Value Village $8, Boots: Spring $15, Hat: Ardenes $7, Scarf: Christmas Gift
Merry Christmas everyone!!!!!!!!!! I meant to post more over the holidays but i have been busier than i thought. I wanted to thank everyone for all your nice comments about my glasses on my last post they made me feel so much better about wearing them out about!!! I bought them at Hakim Optical in their 2 for 1 deal and i think the designer was Stella Vista. Today i am doing a guest post over at Fashion As Stranger so you guys can go check that out here, although i think i messed up my photo sizes a bit. I took these photos in late November before it got to chilly although all of our snow has melted now :(. Normally i would be very happy about that but i got a new cross country ski set from my parents for Christmas and i have a job at a ski resort which i start tomorrow (so excited to finally make some money!!!!) so it needs to snow asap. I hope you all are enjoying the holidays and dont forget to enter my giveaway if you havent already!!!

Skirt: Urban Behaviour $10, Boots: Aldo $80, Purse: Wild Rose
So these are my new glasses!!! I picked them up yesterday and i was so happy i liked how they looked still although my perscription is a bit off so i think i will have to get the lenses changed since they are way fuzzier than my old glasses. I have been wanting to do a blog give away for a long time now (ever since i got 200 hundred followers wahoo!!!) and i thought it would nice to do it around the holdiays :). I finally decided that it should be this sweater although I totally wavered when i put this outfit together since it is soooo pretty but i wanted the giveaway to include everyone and i think the sweater will look great on people of all different sizes. Here is a link to a very bad photobucket photo of it hanging up on a door, I am pretty tall and it is long enough on me to wear leggings with. The giveway is open to everyone and i will draw the winner on New Years Day to celebrate the new year (yes i am being that cheesy lol). I hope everyone has been getting all of there Christmas shopping done, i am so close to being finished and have nice day!!

Shorts: super old, Blazer: Value Village $8, Shirt: Thrift $2, Leggings: Stiches $10, Boots: Spring $15, Scarf: my mom made it for me :)
I really miss the warmer weather for taking outfit photos, i got outside and had to quit in all of ten minutes the other day. I hadnt planned on my scarf or hat being in these photos but i totally underestimated how cold the wind was which is why there are no photos of me looking at the camera. I kept trying to smile and it turned into this frightening grimace thing!! The last time i wore this leopard print shirt was in these photos which are pretty much my favourite i have ever taken. I found it at my local thrift store for only $2 and i always wonder why i dont use it more often when i find it underneath a pile of clothing in my room. I dont know whether or not i have admitted this before but i am just a tiny bit messy no matter how hard i try the clothes always gravitate from the closet to the floor :). Also I just wanted to thank everyone for all of your comments they really are so awesome and always make me feel so much better if i am depressed or down, so i really do appreciate them!! I hope you all had a nice day!!

Please ignore my awful hair in these photos the wind was so strong i had to put my hat on to hold it in place and it still looked totally dishevelled. I wear contacts regularly but today i went and picked out some new frames which i am so excited to get!!!! I always find it so hard to find glasses that look good on me and i just love these ones, i got right into the whole big geeky glasses trend so hopefully those dont go out of style for a while :). I am totally stuck in a fashion rut were all i wear are jeans, tshirts and plaid so I been trying to get out some of my other clothes at the back of my closet which is where i found this sweater and blouse. I wasnt to sure if this outfit was my style or not but i really do like how it looks so it is good to break out of the old comfort zone once and a while! I hope everyone is having a nice day and getting prepared for Christmas it is so soon!!!

Dang it i have gone soooooooo long without a post!!!! After the summer i tried to blog more often but i think i fell off the wagon a bit last week lol. I lent my sister my camera for a few days and then i didnt get out to take photos at all on the weekend. It is raining today (dumb weather) it gets dark so quickly now which is a big pain but i am going to get out as soon as i can. I have always been a fan of Kirsten Dunsts style, i think my style has gotten alot more casual lately so i am really into lots of layering with scarves and i always always love a good blazer. I hope everyone is having a nice day!!

Sweater: Thrift $4, Scarf: Christmas Gift, Skirt: Fairweathers $15, Leggings: Stitches $15, Boots: $24
So i wore my hair in ponytail for these photos which is shocking i know. I hardly ever wear it up, my face is wide and i just dont like how that accentuates it even more. I know it sounds silly i will admit i have gotten some eye rolls when i said that was my reason but it is just one of my weird things, i always feel better when it is down. This sweater is literally the warmest ones i have i think it is 100% wool or something for the price it was totally worth it. Very short post today but i cant seem to think of anything more to type so have a nice day everyone!!

Blazer: Value Village $10, Shirt: Value Village $7, Purse: Value Village $8, Leggings: Stiches $10, Boots: Aldo $80, Socks: Ardenes $4
I love to wear black which you have probably noticed from most of my outfit posts but red has got to be my favourite colour (blacks a shade right?). My sister found me this red leather purse in Value Village and i have used it alot since then, you can find the best bags in thrift stores, my local one sells them for like three dollars it is insane. I bought this shirt on one of my shopping sprees in the summer, my oldest sister had a baby in august (he is the cutest thing ever :)) so my other sister and been down to visit him alot since then. The problem is we always stop at the Value Village everytime and i cannot resist a baragain so my closet is over flowing with stuff. I was actually thinking about setting up a ebay store sometime so i could sell some of the clothes i love but still haven't worn yet. My computer has been acting up a bit, i did post something yesterday but i accidently deleted after it went through this huge freeze and shut down thing. I cant for the life of me figure out where i saved those photos though to redo it so oh well i guess, i am so untech savy!! I hope everyone has a nice evening!!

Jacket: Gift, Hat: Ardenes $7, Scarf: Wild Rose (gift), Skirt: Urban Behavior $10, Leggings: Stiches $10, Boots Aldo $80
It was actually snowing when i took these photos!!! Thankfully it has all melted but still to be totally nerdy and quote Game Of Thrones, winter is coming. I promise that will be the last time i complain the cold :), so how do you like my new boots? I just love how knee high ones can add something special to a outfit. I havent been happy about my photos lately (I will admit i am a bit to picky about things) but i have been having problems with my camera focussing lately and my posing skills seem to be declining at a very fast rate lol. When i wore this skirt out the family had some funny comments, calling it my loincloth or bandgage which made me laugh. It is uber short although i do wear leggings with it so i thought that maybe didnt make it so bad. I mean girls wear just plain leggings as pants and i was totally horrified but i saw one chick just wearing sheer ones and this small sweater once in Value Village. Just make sure your bum is covered and you are all good. I am a very mortified to admit i wore this skirt out by itself in the summer though, looking back on that deftinitely not a good decision. I hope everyone is having a nice day!!

The weather has gotten alot colder very fast, i think it is even supposed to snow tomorrow!! Ugh last winter was very long and lonely so i am not really looking forward to the next few months. But here are some awesome cold weather inspiration pictures i found, i love every single coat so much and I really want to find a fur hat like that first one, it just looks so awesome!! Other news i finally got a pair of over the knee riding boots that i have been wearing around the house all day because i like them so much :) Sometimes i can get into size elevens at Aldo and other times i definitely can't, the shoes vary so much there so it is really exciting when something finally fits. Have a good day everyone!!

Blazer: Warehouse One $30, Shirt: Bluenotes $7, Pants: Value Village: $10, Flats: Aldo $25, Purse: Thrift $3, Belt Value Vilage $5
Super simple outfit this time. I had such a hard time editing these photos to get some i could use, it was so cold out i didnt bother checking them to much at the time and sure enough most of the pics were totally whited out. Plus i got into this very weird lean thing where my feet where straight but the rest was all over the place, so it was not good!! I have been wearing jeans alot lately, these ones in particular are very comfortable although i am inbetween sizes (i hate when that happens), my legs and waist are two different sizes so the whole saggy bum thing is a problem. I bought this striped top the other day, there was a sale so i got two for the price of one. I grabbed the largest size because i thought they would be great oversized shirt and didnt bother to try them on. Big mistake, when i got home i put one on and it was way bigger than i had thought i only wanted it to slightly oversized. So always always try things on, this has happened before but i never seem to learn better, anyways they work tucked in with something over them or with bodycon skirts so its not a total loss a size or two smaller would have been perfect though. Have good day everyone!!

Cardigan: Value Village $5, Dress: Value Village $10, Hat & Scarf: Ardenes $15, Leggings: Stitches $10, Boots: Spring $25
Sometimes i think i could definitely be the posterchild for Value Village. I think the majority of my clothes are from there, i can always find something good whenever i am in one of their stores. It has been really cold here but the weather finally warmed up so i could wear this cardigan outside without freezing. I love how it is super flowy, when i first tried it on i was wearing high waisted shorts and it looked very bohoish with them so that and the price sold me on it. I found this scarf at Ardenes and i just love the burgundy colour, i think i am going to have to go back there and stock up on a few more in different colours before winter. Have a great week everyone!

Faux Leather Pants: H&M $30, Blazer: Warehouse One $30, Shirt: Bootlegger $5, Scarf: Gift from my sister, Purse: Wild Rose
This is the blog debut of my leather pants i mentioned a very long time ago!!! I was so excited when i found these in H&M i have wanted leather leggings or pants for at least two years now and i could actually afford these ones :). They are super comfortable which kindof surprised me and really really warm. I wore them to a show and it was so bloody hot inside the bar my legs were burning. It totally made me think of that one Friends episode where Ross takes his leather pants off because he is hot and cant get them back on lol. My scarf is kindof special, my sister gave it to me when i was twelve as gift when she got back from Italy. I dont think i wore it for about five years but now it is definitely one of my favourite items. Have a great weekend everyone!!

Sweater: Value Village $5, Skirt: Fairweathers $15, Leggings: super old, Boots: Spring $24, Necklace: gift from my cousin
I have been seeing some great knit sweaters on the blogosphere lately which inspired me to break out this one out from the back of my closet. I think i bought it last summer, i just love the mustard colour and i can wear leggings with it, usually i cant find things long enough for me to do that!! Getting my wisdom teeth removed really wasnt to bad, thanks to everyone who wished me luck :). It wasnt very painful afterwards and i didnt get too puffy, the medication i took the last few days made me feel a ill so i think that was the worst part!! You can kindof see my new hair in these photos, i straightened it so it would be longer. I dont think i will be able to wear it wavy for a little while since it just goes into a giant puff ball but i am going to try and get closer photos of all the layers next time. I hope everyone is having a good day!

Plaid Shirt: Value Village $5, Tshirt: Value Village $3, Shorts: ?? very old, Tights: $5, Boots: Spring $15, Purse: Wild Rose $20
I have searched thrift stores for the perfect plaid shirt for a very lllooonnngggg time, it has been surprsingly difficult to find but finally i found one i liked!!! I just love the dark muted colours and it has blue elbow pads, how cool is that, definitely havent found many shirts with those. I found this plain grey shirt in the mens section of Value Village for three dollars. I always forget to buy basic things when i am thrift shopping because there is always so much great unique stuff. I really need to stock up on some plain tshirts, they are beyond handy and i am really into super simple outfits at the moment. You can kindof see in the photos that i tried to do something with my hair, i curled it with my hair straightener :). It looked a bit better in real life though, the wind while i was taking these was terrible, there were so many bad blooper pics. I hope everyone had a lovely evening and happy thanksgiving to any Canadians!!!!!!

Massive inspiration post!!!! i went a little crazy on google images but i just love love love Karlie Kloss's streetstyle. She is just so beautful and after looking through all of these it has been brought to my attention how badly need to get a pair of tall black riding boots, i just need to find the money somewhere. I have been really into model of duty looks lately, they all just have such great style, this is great tumblir i just found, i can waste so much time looking through it!! Have a good evening everyone :).
