Look Book: Pleats, Stripes & Denim!!

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

Yay, sunshine! On Sunday, Martin & I headed out for an amazingly pretty walk around our neighbourhood and stopped for some outfit photos, of course! I don’t think we ever leave the house without our camera. We then ventured down to the ocean, drove to pick up our weekly groceries and came home nice & early to relax. I've been working a lot the last few days, so I'm really trying to savour any available moments of down-time.


I’m spending the rest of today working on my online store. I'm excited to have the website done - it's looking super cute! I also finished sourcing all the jewelry components, which was definitely a labour of love, and took a surprisingly long time. However, now that it's all done, I'm getting really excited to launch the store. And in other news? If you don’t hear from me later today, that’s because I’ll be taking a nap. I got up at 3:30 this morning - ack, what the?!?


As for the outfit, there’s no denying my love for cute skirts, cozy knits and comfy boots. It’s a look that feels, well, very me. Although, when I was putting this outfit together, I was really longing for a thick knit oatmeal sweater to pair with it. I dug through my closet but came up empty handed. Sigh. And check 'em, these are my new Jackie boots from Blowfish. I'm thrilled to finally own a pair of whiskey hued boots - these ones absolutely make my heart go pitter-patter. xo veronika

  31. Veronika, you put the most beautiful winter outfits together! Every time I see a new look from you, I get a little jealous of your skills! These days I'm working hard on getting myself to wear more skirts, even if my inner voice screams "NO!" at me when I check the temperature in the morning. :P

    Hope you manage to get some much needed rest today!
