Leather Sleeves

After all of the Christmas activities, it's nice to have a bit of a break and take advantage of doing absolutely nothing. And this is exactly what I am doing today -- nothing. I had a huge sleep-in and am on my third cup of coffee. The perfect morning... Actually, at some point I do need to venture outside to hunt for the perfect NYE dress. We will be going to a nice dinner party, so some classy sparkles are in order. And since I've left it to the last minute, I can no longer buy it online (Eek!). Clearly, this is a pretty huge dilemma, so if anyone has any suggestions of a good spot for party dresses in Vancouver, please let me know!

Oh yes, about this look. Isn't this the best jacket ever? I am so in love with the faux leather sleeves. It looks like I am the master of layering, when in fact it's Zara who is the genius. I bought this before the boxing day sales because I knew it would be one of the first things to go and I know what those lines are like at Zara on boxing day. Total madness. I saw a photo on the morning of the 26th and was happy that I already had my pretty coat at home, safe and sound :)

Another on of my new favourites is this pretty necklace by Olivia Solie Jewelry. I love simple items like this that you can wear everyday. There is something so appealing about triangles and the best part is the little cross that is stamped into the bronze (you can just make it out in the close-up). I got some earrings in the same style and I love the little details like this. She sells her jewelry at XO Bella in Kits and online here

I hope you have a wonderful weekend! xoxox

  8. Zara coats are amazing... I've had one for three years now that I still wear! Love the layered look of that one... it really does look like you've put a leather jacket under a coat with shorter sleeves!
