 - 10 one day, +10 the next leads to serious wardrobe confusion. Really Canada? I thought we were passed this phase. Last week, I had my Canada Goose and snow boots on serious repeat.  With the rise in temperature, it was just mild enough to pull off this wrap.

 Canadian weather is always giving us mixed singles. Are you here or are you not winter? I'm not sure how much longer I can take of this grey area - I'm a black and white kinda girl. So Winter - I'm going to ask you the one question men across the globe fear - are you ready to commit?

Sundays are a serious downer for many - I get it. The thought of Monday creeping up isn't the most comforting feeling. (Sorry, Monday!)

I, on the other hand, have always loved Sundays. Catching up with friends and family over brunch, discovering new spots in the city,  and taking it easy are just some of the many reasons why. Clearly, my outfit for the day emphasized the "taking it easy" point ;)

Hope you all had a lovely weekend.

seventh heaven grand opening

Happy Thursday everyone! I hope you're staying out of this cold. Unofficial or not, winter has arrived. 

Despite the weather, I have some exciting news that's sure to warm your heart. I have teamed up with Toronto-based online store and pop-up shop called Seventh Heaven They have a fun little pop-up shop at the Promenade in Thornhill, and are having their grand opening party tonight from 5-9 PM. There will be cookies, cake pops, sparkling drinks, and giveaways. What's even better? Use code AMY30 for a 30% discount on EVERYTHING on online and in-store, good today only. 

I'm absolutely loving their interesting brands that they carry - like Free People, Hudson, and Jenny Bird as well as American and Australian brands like Vintage Havana and One Teaspoon which are nearly impossible to find in Canada.  

Mackage and SAM coats for 30% off? I'm already feeling warm and fuzzy.

I made a commitment quite some time ago to limit the amount of leopard in my wardrobe. I was doing a great job until I came across this jacket... on sale. I'm not sure if it was a test or fate but in any regard - I had to have it.

the hipster in me

I'd say my style is more classic than hipster, but the wannabe hipster in me always has an urge to wear chucks and cruise down Queen West West like I was part of the "cool crowd."(I am only half joking here) 

I find that a hat coupled with a pair of fresh chucks have an effortless laid back vibe. And black on black? Looks fresh all year round.

The best Sundays always revolve around hang outs with the best of friends. I spent my Sunday catching up with the girls over brunch, walked around the city, bubbly at Bar Buca, followed by a nice home cooked meal. The ultimate Sunday Funday. 

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

My Sundays usually consist of an oversized sweater, leggings and a pair of flats.  With the cold weather in full force, I am gravitating towards warm, ultra comfy items. As of lately, there seems to be a pattern of incorporating (faux) fur into my outfits. Besides the fact that this snood keeps me warm and is ultra cozy, I think it adds the perfect touch of glamour to an outfit.
  
Hope you had a lovely weekend!
