As my dear friends know only too well, I’m not really a dress/skirt person. I’m totally that girl who shows up to weddings or engagement parties wearing a blouse, heels and dress pants rather than put on a skirt like every one else. In fact, I can count the number of times I’ve donned one in the last year on one hand (not including mandatory work dress code, of course).Quite a sad stat, but that’s likely to change since I picked up this bad boy. Super soft jersey, just-right midi length, and a grey that doesn’t totally look like sweatshirt material. If this is the other side of pants, consider me officially on board.

Get it? Black, white and read all over! Ha. Now that we’ve all recovered from my brilliant humor, I’d just like to tell you that you need to go buy this book by Grace Coddington immediately, if not sooner. I’m only a 1/4 into it so far, but absolutely loving every page. That book and these harem-style pants from Zara might be my two favourite things of the moment. I love how the casual silhouette and dressier fabric make them appropriate for almost anything. Slouchy tee and sandals for day, perhaps a blazer and heels for night? Stay tuned for how that version turns out!

Nice Spaces

After years of grumbling about chores and cleaning my room only after my dear parents requested it, I finally had the revelation that a clean home is a happy home. (Cue exasperated sigh from mom and dad.) Living on my own in Vancouver I instantly find myself in a better mood when my apartment is clean and tidy. As the physical clutter and dust dissipate, so does my stress. Taking this idea and running with it, I’ve also started ‘curating’ little areas in my room by placing specific photos, knick-knacks, shoes etc together for effect. Call it feng shui if you must, I just call them nice spaces.
