November in pictures

November was heavy on the Instagramming (follow me here), with lots of food photos, and a few dogs thrown in for good measure. All in all, a fairly typical month.

November is Han Solo // I love pomegranate season // Abby dog doesn’t want to play piano // she’d rather lie there // yeah they do // leftover Halloween candy // Anthropologie mugs // Starbucks Christmas treats // Ruffles jalapeno popper potato chips (good, but a little artificial)

Purdy’s English toffee // Vietnamese bun // Les Miserables at the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto // that’s not the usual Les Miserables font // post-Les Miserables treat // Vietnames pho // West Elm display // Purdy’s caramel marshmallow // it’s a good pick-me-up at work

Saturday afternoon with a golden lab named Maggie at Club Monaco // key lime tart // not a runaway bride, she’s just trying to cross the street // a warm afternoon = key lime pie and Skor gelato // Casey the Westie at Spectacle is sleeping // “you woke me up for this?” // wish pillow at Anthropologie // sparkles at Anthro // breakfast (it wasn’t a great month)

Friday lunch, Banh Mi Boys pork belly sandwich // Friday dessert, another key lime tart // snowing! // lunch at Wvrst (chorizo sausage, no bun, with duck fat fries // Soma gingerbread toffee // I might look like I’m being strangled by the Club Monaco Tala Infinity Scarf, but it’s warm // pretty snow // pomegranate happiness // an old jewellery favourite

And of course, some shots off my balcony, sunrises and sunsets, and some pretty snow shots.


Stupid sexy Flanders

I’ve been neglecting some of my old favourite jewellery in favour of big statement pieces, but I made a point to go back and wear something old this week.

J.Crew Lightweight Merino sweater // Ayala Bar necklace // Anthropologie Circle the Globe skirt // navy Wolford tights // Nine West heels

(I just realized that today’s outfit is remarkably similar to this one from a month ago. Oops. It’s navy instead of black though! It’s different, I swear!)

I bought this Ayala Bar necklace in 2009 in Vancouver (at a store called Lou Lou Luv in Kisilano), and it’s one of my favourites. When I put it on this week (for the first time in a while), I couldn’t believe how light it is. Seriously, it’s like I’m wearing nothing at all. Which makes me stupid sexy Flanders. (Nothing at all! Nothing at all! Nothing at all!)

Although real Thanksgiving was almost two months ago (Thanksgiving in November? weird), I hope all my American friends are in a turkey stupor and planning to stay away from the Black Friday craziness. Online shopping all the way.


borrowed jewels

One of my oldest and dearest friends is a Stella & Dot independent stylist, and she has very very kindly lent me some of her sample pieces to try out. It’s so much fun!

Jolie Necklace:


Peacock Necklace:


Club Monaco Cece Cashmere Tee // Club Monaco skirt // Wolford tights // Tory Burch Reva flats

I really like both, but of the two, I’m leaning more towards the Peacock necklace. But looking forward to trying out more.



It’s only Wednesday, and here are the things I’m already tired of this week:

  • Rob Ford. Go away already. Even my sister (who lives in Boston and has never lived in Toronto) is tired about people asking her about him.
  • Being cold. I’ll turn up the heat soon though.
  • Craving sugar. My own fault, I keep eating it. Hard to stop once I’ve started.
  • Being so freaking tired all the time. I’m in bed by 9:30 every night. But at least I’m not sick.
  • Having sore muscles all the time. Is this what fit people feel like or am I doing something wrong?
  • Work.

What makes things better? Knit dresses. (Also a new phone case!)

Unintentional hiatus

I think I might have blacked out for the past two weeks. I definitely didn’t intend to take a break from posting; I didn’t even realize that it had been more than two weeks since I last posted.

So just a quickie post of something I wore this week (definitely not this morning, I’m in my see-through Target leggings and a Gap t-shirt and my hair is messily huge/hugely messy), black dress, teal tights (can’t tell too well in this light, but they’re teal), and Stella & Dot’s Marchesa necklace.

One of my oldest and dearest friends is a Stella & Dot independent stylist and I got the Marchesa through her, of course. She’s also been kind enough to lend me her sample pieces to try out/review, so there will be more jewellery coming up, if I don’t mentally black out again and actually remember to post.
