I’m getting pretty anxious for spring to arrive, but it doesn’t seem like that is going to happen anytime soon. Because of that, i’m finding it hard to shop for new spring styles. I’ve had the same winter coat for a few years now, and lately i’ve been on the hunt for a new one. I figure the end of the season is as good a time as any, not to mention that’s when the best deals happen. Although i’m eagerly awaiting springs arrival, having a new coat definitely makes the lingering winter weather a little more bearable!

I recently had the pleasure of shopping at the new Saks Fifth Avenue store located in CF Chinook Center. The store is absolutely beautiful, with a touch of elegance, and a unique experience in each department. The small details in each part of the store, from the fragrance department to the styling lounge, make it a wonderful and luxurious shopping experience!

This is probably one of the most comfortable outfits that I own. Combining mom jeans, and a boyfriend fit sweater just seemed like a great idea! I’ve been a fan of oversized sweaters for a while now, and this sweater from UO is no exception. On the other hand, mom jeans are a relatively new style for me. I typically wear my jeans much tighter, and a bit darker. It’s taken me quite a long time to branch out and try something new, but i’m glad that I finally did! For the rest of this look, I added a few of my favourite new accessories. These boots from Vionic shoes are absolutely beautiful, and extremely comfortable! I’m a huge fan of Vionic for the way that they blend comfort and style so seamlessly. These boots have Orthotic insoles in them that provide support all day long, so I can look stylish and not hurt my feet in the process.

I often find that February is one of the hardest months of the year to shop for new clothes. It’s the time when all the stores and clothing lines are coming out with the latest in spring fashion. It’s gets me excited for spring, but it also feels a little premature, when here in Calgary there is still a few feet of snow on the ground! Regardless, I keep up the search for new items that I can transition from winter to spring! This particular outfit is a great example of that. It’s a combination of some old and new favourites, that are also items that I wear all year round! These boots by Thursday Boot Co, are a favourite new addition to my wardrobe. I love the style and the colour is perfect! As for the rest of the look, I chose these new Just Black skinny jeans, and a white tee, to keep things simple.

I’ve been hearing a lot about positive self talk lately, and I think that it’s a great thing! It got me thinking about areas in my life that I need to improve on. If i’m being honest, i’m quite a perfectionist, and it causes a lot stress in my life. I can be really hard on my self, and get really upset when things don’t turn out the way that I hoped they would. Lately i’ve been trying to deal with this by asking myself a few questions. Would I talk to a friend the way i’m talking to myself? Can I learn from this mistake, and make a change next time? I’ve learned that if you can be gentle with yourself, and learn from your mistakes, then you’ll be better off in the end.

After a fun day out snowshoeing, I like to treat myself to a can of Smirnoff Ice. With the new Smirnoff Ice Party Packs there’s a flavour for everyone! my current favourite is pineapple!
I’d like to think that at this point in my life i’ve got a solid grasp on what my style is. When I’m shopping, I can easily pick out items that I like, and assess how well they fit in with the rest of my wardrobe. I also consider wearability, and I try not buy things that are too similar to what I already own. To me this ability is a triumph. I’ve had issues in the past with spending way too much money on shoes and clothes. I had the mindset that I needed to shop constantly, to keep my blog fresh. I’ve learned that this is not necessary, and I’ve cut back my spending a lot in the last year. I personally don’t think my blog has suffered at all, and I think that i’ve built a wardrobe that is filled with items that I love, and that I want to wear. At this point I can’t think of anything in my closet that I regret buying.
This look is a few of my old, and new favourites. This Free People dress is one of my go to items! I’ve worn it on many occasions in the past year, so I have definitely gotten my money’s worth with this one! These boots are new addition to my wardrobe, courtesy of Thursday Boot Co. They are such a classic style, and I can’t wait to pair them with lots of other looks this year!
