Fallen Leaves

I popped back home this past weekend for the briefest of visits. A few days was simply not enough, though I sure was happy to avoid the -24 degrees temperatures and snow-covered streets of Calgary. People in Vancouver have been complaining about how cold it's been getting but it still felt like Fall to me. It's been snowing on and off in Calgary since mid-October so I'll take any non-Winter weather I can get.

On that note, it looks like I may be staying in Calgary till the end of January instead of the end of December as originally planned. I've heard that January/February are the worst months to be in Alberta... someone please tell me my sources are wrong!

Dress: Dil|ema (Aritzia) / Sweater: Talula Babaton (Aritzia) / Belt: Wilfred (Aritzia)

  2. Yeah, January and February are pretty awful in Alberta. But I'm north of Calgary (Edmonton) so maybe you'll get better weather...on another note, those tights are insanely cute!

  7. Your anchor tights are awesome! And I love your big, thick belt - I'm still on the hunt for the right one. :)

  8. I'm afraid your sources are right... January and February are miserable on the prairies. Stock up on good DVDs, get yourself a pair of fuzzy slippers and you'll be just fine ;) Love your tights, the print is too cute!

  10. The tights are sooo cute! I have such a weakness for printed black tights. I am currently on the lookout for Hello Kitty ones. I hope it's ok to still wear stuff like that when I'm almost 30...oh well I think when you're Asian anything goes!

    Looking lovely and put together as always!

    1. All my friends make fun of me for still being obsessed with Hello Kitty at my age... I think you and I can still rock that though ;)

  17. Looks like you've gotten used to the Calgary cold already! I thought it was freeeeezing this weekend in Vancouver. It's gotten better though - now I get hot while walking to work! Can't imagine how cold Calgary will be in Jan/Feb. Can't wait to see how you're going to plan your outfits for such low temperatures!

  18. You picked the perfect weekend to come back to Vancouver, it was beautiful and full of sunshine! Look on the bright side of being in Calgary until the end of January...after you survive a real winter there you can laugh at the rest of us Vancouver wusses who whine about our wet cold ;)

  24. I think this is my favourite look of yours so far! Love the sweater over the lace dress and those tights are amazing. I want a pair!!

    I can't even imaging the weather in Calgary -- I don't want to do any colder than Vancouver. It's freezing!

  38. I'm just south of you in Montana, and yeah, January and February are the worst cold-wise. However, snow-wise November and March are the worst. (It's, uh, too cold to snow in the dead of winter. No joke.)

    I adore those anchor tights.
