Parka's And Lace Dresses

Nov 19, 2014

Perhaps it's the Canadian girl in me... but I love pairing a parka with a pretty lace dress. When it comes to personal style, I definitley have a thing for pairing the unexpected! Like, a pretty statement necklace with Martin's over-sized sweater + rolled up jeans, or a floaty maxi dress with a shrunken plaid shirt. So much fun! What are your favourite and unexpected pairings?!

  3. We're about to get hit with another 10-15 cm of snow here so I'm envious of how lovely it looks there! And it sounds as though you are being really proactive when it comes to your health - which is such a positive and admirable approach to take.

  4. Oh no, so sorry to hear that you've been feeling under the weather again, Veronika! Wishing you a swift recovery for sure - especially because it sounds like you have lots of fun things planned! I'm so ready for it to be spring so we can really start getting out and about here in Paris, but so far the weather is refusing to cooperate... so I`ll just be living vicariously through you for now :) And admiring your snapshots of Scout, of course. He is so photogenic!

  5. Hoping for warmer weather in Toronto as well :) Love the photos!

  8. I am right there with you as far as warm weather goes! I just want to be outside. And I'm sorry you haven't been feeling well... We should talk more. I have fibromyalgia which causes flare-ups that leave me incredibly fatigued as well. It's not easy. Sending love! xo

  20. Have you ever heard of Hemocode? I know you mentioned having issues with food allergies, and I started having the same thing last summer! I had Hemocode testing done and found out I was reacting to a LOT of foods that I was eating daily - lots of which are super healthy so I figured I was doing myself some good! It's testing that is different from true allergies - more like sensitivities that cause fatigue, rashes, headaches, etc. Anyways, you can read about it at It's Canadian, too! :) Hopefully you feel better soon!

    1. Miranda, thank you so much for the info. I haven't heard of Hemocode... although, I did get allergy/food sensitives testing done last summer. I'll have to peek at their site and see what they offer. It's definitley been an up hill battle. Appreciate your comment, so much!! xo
