Snow Owl

My trip home for the Holidays was short and sweet this year, as I'm heading to Hawaii for the rest of my Holidays! Being Canadian, snow and Christmas have always gone together, so I'm glad I was able to enjoy it in Fredericton during my stay. Naturally- I had to include some of the cold, white stuff in my hometown post!

One thing I love about going home is getting to sort through all of my old, forgotten clothes that haven't been able to make it with me on my previous moves. This outfit consists of many of those forgotten pieces. I'm so happy to have them back in my loving arms and into my luggage!

It was a beautiful, mild winter day when I wore this outfit so this grey pea coat worked out perfectly. Paired with my favorite grey toque and furry mittens, I felt at home in this snowy winter setting (coincidentally, I was home)

Cord-ially Invited

Today, you are cordially invited to meet my new (thrifted) corduroy skirt! I picked up this gem at my favorite  neighborhood consignment boutique, Common Sort. It's Actually an American Apparel skirt, but thrifting made it a lot cheaper!

I paired it here with purple tights and over the knee socks for a weather suitable look, but I know it will be just as cute in the spring/summer with some wedges and a cute tank. I love finding pieces that work year round!

I'm currently home for the Holidays, and soaking up every second of snow until I head for warmer weather in Hawaii! Can't wait to do outfit posts from the land where palm trees sway.
