Dress & Blazer : Target // Shoes: Ralph Lauren // Watch: Michael Kors

Houndstooth is a big trend this year and in fact it is a pretty classic print that you usually can't go wrong with. This dress is sleeveless so a little to cold for December but throwing on a black blazer makes it weather appropriate. The dress came with a black belt but I switched it out for this yellow one, a bit of colour always makes things more interesting.

I didn't buy a lot of things on Black Friday but I did pick up this dress for $15 at H&M. I love the structured look, how the skirt part flares and it is an item I can wear year round. Here is what it looks like on its own, which is fine for warmer weather.
I originally thought I would wear it with a blazer..........
However, I think I much prefer the look with a cardigan and belt for the winter. What do you guys think?

We had another sale last night and it was a lot of fun. I decided on some plaid and pearls. I have had this shirt and sweater for ages and don't think I have ever worn them together before. That is the best thing about working your closet, coming up with new outfits without having to go out and buy anything new.

I love turtlenecks during the cold months. With this one you will definitely see me coming! Subtle it is not. I love the colour mix of orange and purple and the print is amazing. I kept everything else very simple as the shirt is enough on it own.

One of the items I could not live without are my Pashmina's / Scarves. I wear them all year round, I have used them as blankets, in lieu of a jacket and they are essential to keeping me warm during the winter months. Here are a rather small sampling of my large collection.

I had the best night last night with great friends. Lots of laughing, eating and dancing involved. Our hostesses out did themselves and I may have broken out my moon walk. A little tired today after rolling in around 3:30 but never mind, sleep is over rated anyway right!

Happy Black Friday! I don't remember this being a very big deal last year over here in Canada but apparently all of the stores are having huge sales and most opened at 7am this morning. I am sure all of my fellow shopoholics have already braved the stores and I must admit I am a little behind. Being the farthest thing from a morning person I just couldn't quite get going at 6am to shop, now don't get me wrong I am still heading out very shortly to see if there is anything left, wish me luck.

I spent quite a while the other day cleaning out my closet. Well, I actually only got around to doing my pants. I tried on 40 pairs (and this did not include jeans), I managed to get rid of about 5 pairs, not very productive but I have a hard time with letting clothes go. I am moving onto my jeans next and I plan to double the "to go" pile, aiming for 10!

I bought this skirt this past summer and love it. I wasn't sure quite what I wanted to wear with it and came up with a short blue jacket (see below). I knew there must be another way and then I remembered this sweater I bought a couple years ago. Instantly turned this skirt into what looks like a dress. A win-win situation!

When the Phillip Lim line came out at Target I totally missed it. By the time I got to a Target it was long gone. It was the bags I really wanted and a couple of the tops. So yesterday when I popped into Target I did a quick scan through the clothes and low and behold way back hidden in a rack was this top, one that I had originally wanted, in my size and only $10! Love it when that happens.

This is an outfit I wore this week-end. Nothing special about it just a couple of the things I love, stripes, turtleneck, boots. The weather has definitely turned and it is mighty cold outside, gonna have to pull out the long-johns soon!

Yesterday was our first official snowfall and I wanted to cry. Now most of this snow did not last (thank goodness) however, there is a light layer still on my deck. I am really hoping it will melt away and I will not have to see it again for at least a little while longer.
This is exactly how I felt..........
