Into The Forest

down2-1

I have been having a moment with simple dresses lately as they are one of the easiest items to throw on quickly without having to think too much. When summer comes around, while I love the warm weather (and would rarely complain), I am always looking for quick pulled together looks. It is also an easy excuse for me to wear the overgrown number of dresses in my closet … without needing to pair them with tights (because let’s be honest there are few clothing items worse than tights).

All Puffed Up

I am happy to say that I can finally see the end of winter in sight. And while the days are slowly getting a litter bit warmer and a little bit longer, I have been able to enjoy the tail end of the season (better late then never right). I never thought I would be one to enjoy owning a puffer coat (yes you’re hearing that right and from a Canadian at that), but this one has been a godsend for me. I “borrowed” it from my Mom’s closet in early January and it was the greatest item I used/owned this winter season. Now don’t get me wrong, I am still looking forward to finally shoving it back into the closet for the year, though I don’t think I will return it to her anytime soon, sorry Momoo.

I Stopped Buying Clothes for 2 Months

Here’s What I Learned

Earlier this year Rye and I moved in together and it brought on a lot of changes, one of those was to my closet. I was now going from two big closets all to my self down to one tiny shared closet. Let me just say, I never knew how many items of clothing I had until I faced shoving it all into an eighth of the size space. Seeing as the closet was not going to get any bigger, I had to make my wardrobe smaller (or at least stop it from growing). So I decided to stop buying clothes for 2 months (a feat that proved harder than I thought), here is what I learned.

Candy Coloured Coat

With the snow in Calgary continuing to fall I am starting to come to terms that we may still be in for a few more cold snaps. I normally do not overly mind the winter but this year has seemed to be more brutal than most. It may be the fact that it is the first full winter back in the City in years or that we have reached record snowfalls. At this point, I am counting down the days until I can break out the summer wear again (is it almost vacation time yet?) and trying to keep cozy in sweaters and big scarves.

Winter Blues

I am a fan of summer, I do not think there is a person in this world who will dispute that. My friend and I used to spend our University study sessions joking around how we were island girls and the cold was just not for us (this was done with a coffee in hand staring at the massive snow piles). This year, I am back in Calgary for the first full winter in years and without a trip to somewhere warm at that. Previously, I was away at school in Vancouver and before that in Nova Scotia, so the extreme cold was something both myself and my body forgot about completely.
