As you can tell in these pics, it has been oh so grey and gloomy out lately. As I’m sure any of you who work full-time office jobs can relate to, it’s already slightly depressing to leave work in pitch blackness, but when the whole day is completely dark as well, well…it’s less than amazing. My remedy? Go for a run, put on some ridiculous TV (who else is watching The Bachelor??) and take advantage of all the darkness by heading bed earlier. It’s a bit boring but if there was ever a good time to have some regularity and focus on health/relaxation, this post-holidays cold snap would be it.
Thank God for both my go-to winter overcoat (this H&M find for FIFTY DOLLARS honestly goes with everything) and my leather jacket, which I have worn to pieces since getting it. When FASHION Magazine asked the Style Panel what we regarded as our top winter staple this week, my mind immediately snapped to this leather jacket. Worn under a roomy overcoat, it’s the perfect piece to transition from a cool, layered outside look to a chic indoor style (particularly because I find I’m still cold everywhere). 110%, if you’re only going to invest in a few pieces, make one of them a good leather jacket. You’ll wear it to bits.
On another note, thanks so much for the sweet words on yesterday’s post! So glad you guys all like the new ‘do – I am loving it. Feels so fresh and so clean clean. Now I just need to adjust shower-wise…does anyone else get thrown off for like…a week post-cut? I keep reaching for the bottom layer to work my palm full of condition in only to clasp down on air. Looking forward to saving on shampoo and conditioner, woot!

    When I checked our Vancouver weather forecast yesterday morning, it said we were going to be enjoying sunshine all week!! What the heck happened?! Oh well, I guess we'll just have to rock the layers for a while longer yet; and you've done a splendid job here with your moto jacket and tweedy coat!! Love the pretty lilac nail polish, too!!

    Love how you've layered the leather jacket and grey coat! The weather here in Louisiana has been awful and dreary as well. So not fun when trying to shoot an outfit

    Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating
    it but, I’d like to send you an e-mail. I’ve got some suggestions for your blog you might be interested in hearing.

    Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog
    and was curious what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog
    like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web
    smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Appreciate it

    I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all
    website owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever
    before.
