SPRING: DAY ONE

It's still cold out. Fortunately, it wasn't so cold I couldn't walk around with my jacket open—so I kept my jacket unzipped until the evening, when it got really chilly. Again. (Yes, I am absolutely bitter about this weather.)

I've learned to not get too excited about the warm weather, so I've made sure to bring my gloves and hat with me wherever I go, because you just never know with this Toronto weather. If your hands, like mine, are still freezing, you should grab a pair of Quill & Tine's touchscreen gloves—especially 'cause they're on sale right how! Even if you've decided to commit to "spring" weather and ditch your winter accoutrements, it wouldn't hurt to get a head-start on your winter wardrobe shopping for next year, as it seems like we're looking at a perpetual winter. 

The one up-side to this weather: No more snow, which means not having to wear my heavy-duty winter boots!

NIGHT OUT

There's A LOT happening at the moment, and my wee agenda is filled to the brim with deadlines. However, my fella and I took a few moments this evening to attend the FNO x Beckerman Blog event at Buonanotte

This was my feeble attempt at incorporating some spring into my outfit with what I'm almost certain is a dress from the fall collection. At least I made an effort—and it was a departure from my usual, all black outfits!
Dress, Jacket, and shoes - ZARA | Vest and clutch - H&M | Hat - UO | Lipstick - Illamasqua "Maneater."
I love my fur vest, but I honestly cannot wait to stop relying on it (and about three other layers) for warmth. Where are you, warm weather?!

BEHIND THE SCENES

Got a chance to shoot with my good pal Patrick yesterday. I'm pretty excited to see the final product—and obviously, to show you guys!

It's always an interesting experience when I'm in a studio setting, 'cause I'm not used to someone directing me, but it is fun, especially since I'm not a model by any means.

ICY

Toronto's been in a deep freeze for the last few days. -40 degree weather calls for layers and unhappy faces—two things that I've definitely got an abundance of.

RED

Dress - H&M | Lipstick - MAC "RiRi Woo"
It's a new year, and so I thought that I'd change things up a bit. Let's not get crazy here—there's no way I'd stop wearing black. (Note: This dress also came in black, and I had to resist the urge to buy it.)
