Lace on Lace



Top c/o Club Monaco, Sam Edelman wedges, Club Monaco coat, tights & skirt,
bag c/o Mary Nichols, earrings c/o Brooklyn Designs

And so my love affair with purple continues...and it's getting kind of weird. I don't know, I guess something about the tone makes me feel warm despite how chilly and grey it's been, that and the fact that I have an obsessive nature. Either way, it's ruled my wardrobe so far during these colder months.

This amethyst-hued top from Club Monaco has become a fast favourite of mine - the colour is beyond pretty and until I got it, I didn't realize how desperately I needed pretty but wearable tops. I have so many dressy tops or the kind that really should only be used for layering (i.e. they're not all that pretty).

Leaving my cabin today...SIIIIGH. I always wish I could stay up here for a full week. Having said that, I'll be seeing one of my favourite girls tonight who's usually all the way in Oz, so definitely coming home for a good reason. Hope you all have an amazing weekend!

  6. That skirt is so pretty! I love lace lately and purple is my favorite color but I never seem to find a lot of pieces in a good purple color for me.
