Twenty8Twelve leather jacket, Marc by Marc Jacobs bag,
H&;M shirt & necklace, gloves c/o Lost & Found, skirt c/o Shoppalu

Because I’ve somehow gotten myself good and sick over the past couple days, I wanted to just share the rest of the pictures from the guest post I did for the beautiful Megan of Feathers & Freckles the other week instead of making you look at pictures of me sneezing and blowing my nose. My first full realization that I was actually sick was when I woke up at 9 a.m. yesterday only to feel so woozy that I crawled back into bed, sleeping until noon. Poop. Hoping I can get my act together in the next day or so as I have events I want to get to, Emergen-c and hot tea full steam ahead!

I really need to get it together soon though because my bro is back in town and we need to partyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. And by party I mean we’re going to a Canucks game tonight and I need to not sneeze and cough on the unlucky soul’s head who sits in front of me (and yes I always cough/sneeze into the crook of my elbow, but germs spread, which is why I hold my breath when someone sneezes…I’m…different!).

On a brighter/creepy note, want to see the Christmas card my fortunate family is receiving? I really wanted to channel Vanilla Ice for this masterpiece, and I have to say it worked out pretty perfectly:

This will undoubtedly fill them with Christmas joy! And it serves as a great opportunity to remind them that I am in fact da bomb, because they forget all the time.

Hope you’re all having a great hump day! Four days left to Christmas, can you believe it? Hope you’re all wrapped up with shopping now and get a chance to fully relax! To Vogue or Bust

    I loved this look that Megan featured! The leather jacket with the pleated skirt was the perfect amount of tough and girly, I think it's one of my favorite looks you've done! And I hold my breath when people sneeze too. And when I walk through a car's exhaust… I'm just convinced that I'm saving my brain cells by not breathing in carbon monoxide. So you're not the only one!

    Love red on you and your Marc by Marc Jacobs bag is gorgeous!! Hope you will be feeling better soon. I have heard that if you put Vick's vapour rub on the bottom of your foot and wear socks to bed, you will speed up your recovery process.

I don't know how anyone could possibly forget that you are da bomb 🙂 Hope you're feeling better soon, doll. And in the meantime, these photos are just a stunning the second time around. So jealous of your adorable wedge booties. Look for a chapter coming your way soon 🙂

    Aw, poor you, what a rotten time to get sick! If I may suggest an Irish cure, an Irish whiskey with lemon, studded with a few whole cloves, and some honey in it is an excellent way to de-coldify. Get well in time for holidays!!
