favourite winter time dress

Outfit Details: 
Dress: Banana Republic 
Belt: Vintage 
Sweater: Thrifted
Tights: The Bay 
Boots: Thrifted
Scarf: Vintage
Necklace/bracelets: Hattitude jewellery

I love this dress. It's such a great winter time wear. It's warm, the perfect length and looks rustic chic. It has a bit of pink in the tweed so I love picking that up with the coral sweater and accenting it with the jewelry. Do you have a favourite winter time outfit? 
I Hattified this outfit with some rockin' gems, some killer leg warmers and kickin' hair bow. It's all in the bow eh? I love how much volume it gives my hair. Bigger the better, no?

This week I've been working away. I've got a ton of new jewellery being added to the online shop this weekend. I've been working away on my spring/summer collection.

snap shots of my apartment

Here's a little sneak in to our apartment. Snap shots of our first place we have called home together. We've been here about seven months and I just LOVE the place. I did not post any of our bedroom (my favourite decorated room in the house!) or my studio. I'll have to post those next week. I love taking peeks into other people's lives and homes. Hope you enjoy these tidbits. 

Curling was a huge success on the weekend! You know you're Canadian when, eh? Has anyone else curled? It's actually really fun and challenging! I have a huge bruise on my elbow from it. Curling can get intense!

Neat fact for this week, we leave for Barbados in exactly 14 days. Gosh I am so excited. Follow me on instagram @hattitudejewels for all the latest outfit finds that I'm taking on our trip! I can't wait to go South. Did you sneak away for a little vacation this winter? Living in London, Ontario right in the snow belt this year has proved that I need a sunny destination ASAP! It is ALWAYS snowing here.

Are you ready for the Oscars this Sunday?

Outfit Details: 
Sweater: Vintage, Sentimentalist, London, ON
Jean Shirt: Joe Fresh
Skirt: Vintage, Chez Thrift, Bolton, ON
Tights: The Bay

Gosh I love this sweater. It's so feminine and springy looking, no? I love the little details of the flowers. One thing it's not the warmest sweater. There's no wool in it. I try to wear it on little warmer winter days (is that an oxymoron?). I finally found a denim shirt that fits! All I had to do was go grocery shopping (on a girls weekend up north!) to find it at Joe Fresh. Was it strange buying my fruits and veggies and clothes as well? A little. But hey, if I can shop AND get my groceries...I'm a happy lady. 

Have you been keeping up on all your oscar movies? I'm so far behind! One year I saw all of them. The Oscars are my favourite time of year, mainly because it's become a tradition with my girlfriends and I to get together, dress to the nines, eat some treats and play some Oscar bingo. 
Do you have a tradition with your friends you adore? Valentines day? Easter? I love hearing other people's traditions!

do fashionista's wear leather?

Outfit details: 
Vest: Gift, Pre-loved, Toronto, ON
Blouse: Joe Fresh
Hair bow: Joe Fresh
Belt: Gift
Pants: Vintage
Boots: Gift, Town Shoes
Jewelry: Hattitude jewellery. Online shop

I love this pants and vest. These pants are the warmest high waisted wool pants I own in my wardrobe. For days when it's -20 degrees out, they are the perfect piece to wear. This vest was a birthday gift from a dear friend from one of my favourite stores, Pre-loved, in Toronto, on Queen st. I love the cute little lace detailing on the shoulder. Isn't it perfect? I always say, it's all in the tiny details. This vest was actually made from old recycled sweaters. Neat, eh? 

Hope your weekend is shaping up to be a great one! We have our curling Wobbly Rocks bonspiel put on by the Forest City Sports and Social Club. It was a lot of fun last fall, should be another hoot. 

Here's a joke my boyfriend told me this afternoon; Do fashionista's wear leather? NO but they could easily be suede! hardy -har-har-ha
Do you have any fashion jokes? 
Enjoy your almost Friday-day!

what to eat on valentines day?

Outfit Details: 
Skirt: Thrifted
Shirt: Yours Now Mine in Bolton, ON
Sweater: Jacob
Belt: Thrifted
Tights: The Bay
Necklace: for sale in my online shop Hattitude Jewellery

It sure was hard finding a red outfit today in honour of cupid. For some reason most of my red clothing is summer items. I layered this outfit up and threw on my trusty red lips for good measure. 

I hope you are all having a wonderful and amazing love filled day. Yes I know some of you may scorn and scowl at Valentines day, but it doesn't have to be a holiday just for couples! Grab a friend, dress up in red, light some candles and make them a nice dinner. Tell them why they are special. Who doesn't LOVE an ego boost! 

Go eat some ice cream with maple syrup and chocolate chips...or the healthier version, strawberries dipped in chocolate! 

Have a great Love Day!
