You know you’re getting used to cold weather when -5°C seems SO much warmer than -15°C. Like tropical. Speaking of tropical, I think I need a vacation. Or I’d like one at least. But I digress – I’m sleepy and just finished setting up a shelf for my office (yay!). I’ll be showing you some more of our apartment on the blog later this month.

Lately, I’ve been very into wearing un-fussy things: a camel coat, Gucci loafers (when the weather allows it) plus my favourite massive Celine sunglasses (they key being that they cover most of your face so you don’t have to wear any makeup). That’s about all I can do right now.

PS The response for last week’s bridal makeup video tutorial was overwhelmingly lovely. Thank you all! I’m filming some more videos this week, so if you have any requests, please let me know! Have a great start to the week 🙂

    Love this look! I’m all for simplicity and you always do it so so well. I can’t wait to see pics of the apartment, and yes, I agree…the make up tutorials are fabulous.

    I am so glad I stumbled upon your blog and insta account. Your style etc, is so very different than what I usually follow and I am really loving your YouTube videos. So far I’ve purchased about 25 new products from Nordstrom and my amazon cart is quite full. My husband will not thank you but I will!!! I’d love to see videos on your morning routine (so strange why people find this fascinating but we do #weirdosunite) also – videos or blog posts on “a day in the life”
    I’m a mom of two boys who struggles with fashion and makeup and you’ve inspired me. Thank you!

    It’s so cool how camel anything immediately makes one look stylish 🙂 I love your camel coat here!

    I feel you! I have to agree that -5°C seems so much warmer than -15°C. Yet i still can’t wear loafers until +10°C. Love this outfit!

    Have a great day!

    Hi Jill,

    I absolutely love your style. I’m also a dog mom, hah! I’m wondering if you could
    attach a link to the fabulous hm menswear blazer you have on in a few recent Instagram posts. I really need to refresh my wardrobe with some classic pieces.

      Hi Natalie,

      Thank you so much! I don’t think the H&M blazer is available online anymore, but it may be in store… I picked it up before Christmas!

    Hey! Im starting to slowly upgrade my wardrobe and wanting to get some great pieces that last but I dont want to get five billion different kinds of coats aha. I want a camel coat but I dont know if I should wait for classic trench coats to come back in season or to get the wool camel stedman coat. What do you think?

      Hi love,

      I am totally in love with the camel coat and think it’s so classic – that’s what I would do. I think you’ll wear it more than a trenchcoat!
