starting fresh


YOU KNOW WHEN your life just kind of gets turned upside down because of so many hard-to-deal-with events happening all at once? It's funny. I always feel like my life is routine, and then wham I get hit with a thousand different decisions facing me all at once, asking me to decide now because, well,  life is apparently urgent. So, I made the executive decision to cut out a few things to make room for others, which included putting a month hiatus on this here blog. I can tell you though, I am so happy to be back. December feels like it's going to be a great month, and I feel like I'm finally getting back to my old self again. 

I've been adoring the leather sleeves trend which is everywhere right now, and I couldn't help but fall in love with this Ellison trench from Blonde, a small boutique in Kelowna. I also picked up a simple chambray from Forever 21 that I've been wearing nonstop. Who would've thought that a denim top would become such a staple piece in my wardrobe?! Have a happy Thursday everyone!
