Grey Days

First things first, I'd like to say a huge "thank you" to Kate from Petite Adventures for featuring me in this week's Style Profile. Be sure to check out my post here to read my answers to her questions and learn a bit more about me.

Secondly, can I just say how happy I am to be back home? Since moving back from Calgary, I have been busy catching up with my friends and eagerly reimmersing myself into my former Vancouver lifestyle. Of course, no proper "reimmersion" would be complete without some typical grey and dreary weather. Thankfully I have my new Pieces Ellena Snood and ASOS Scallop Front Tab Across Body Bag. I received both as Christmas/New Years gifts from Ladbrokes to celebrate their winter slots games and think they are the perfect pieces to counteract the gloom!

Tee: Wilfred (Aritzia) / Jeans: Paige (similar) / Boots: Steve Madden (similar)
Snood: ASOS (c/o Ladbrokes) (here) / Bag: ASOS (c/o Ladbrokes) (here)
Bangle: Marc by Marc Jacobs (similar)

  1. You must be so happy to be home after spending the worst part of the winter in Calgary! A little gray weather is nothing compared to all that cold :) Love your bag, the colour is so pretty on you and I liked the structured shape

  2. Welcome home, Alison! At least the grey weather is warmer than the snow, right? I love the colour of your snood and your whole outfit actually. Simple, classic cuts and colours, can't go wrong with that :)

  4. Hi Babe! Yes, you do look great even though the weather is so gloomy! Your hair color with the hint of red, the scarf, the bangle! All add up to a stunning look of the day!
