Winter Escapades





Cape & Necklace // Forever 21 
 Bow Embellished Blouse // ASOS 
Shoes // Expression via The Hudson Bay 
Bag // 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target 
Hat // Ever New


If you live in Vancouver, you learn to live with the ups and downs of inhabiting a rainforest region. Whether the precipitation comes down as rain, snow, or hail, you have to be prepared for the wet stuff no matter what time of the year it is. The last few days were no exception; new blankets of snow were transforming our land into a giant snowglobe, much to the dismay of many. Nevertheless, I count my blessings and am glad that this little snow flurry is nothing in comparison to the blizzards that terrorize the eastern side of this continent. In light of the weather, I took out my trusty cape and a wide-ish brimmed hat in order to keep warm and my hair dry. I also made an effort to stay inside as much as possible so that I could study for my upcoming midterm exams (with several hot cups of tea), as well as recover from what remains of a cold that I've been suffering from these past few days. All in all, I had a relaxing yet productive weekend-- how about you?

  11. Such a cute look :)
    Oh, now you also have some snow! :)
    Blizzard? Omg, i am really happy that we do not have something like this. But this winter has also been rough to us. Some people from my village that live higher didn't had electric for a couple of days and a friend of mine didn't even come out of her village because there was so much snow :S

  16. Debbie! I have to admit I was really shocked when I looked outside my window and saw snow; I mean it looked like something out of Narnia, non? Anyways, I'm loving how great you look despite the bitter cold we had. As you know, I'm in love with those gingham style trousers from Topshop and loving the paring of the cape and hat. I'm in desperate need of a blogger catch-up so lets make it happen girlie :)

  20. It was heartbreaking and expensive games for our country. We got first place in the medal standings, but it's not so important thing. I think that the main purpose of the Olympic Games - the friendship of peoples and sports fair competition. Do you like the organization of the Olympic Games? Thanks for your comment!

  21. I'm surprised it didn't snow in Seattle too this past weekend because it was so darn cold. I love this outfit! I actually just bought a hat very similar to yours from Forever 21. I love the pattern of the pants with the pattern of the cardigan. The cardigan looks so cozy. The mauve color of the top is really pretty and I'm loving the giant bow detail. When I go out in the snow I wear sweats and rainboots. You look so stylish!! : )
