Excuses, excuses

Every day for the last week I have said to myself "Today I will blog". Some days I ended up having no time, but other days I've had a couple of hours spare and yet the time has flown by and suddenly I'm going to bed whilst thinking to myself "Tomorrow I'll get that post up...". It is ridiculously frustrating, though all totally my own fault. Since I took on a second job at the end of November I've had less free time for blogging, but I know there are lots of bloggers out there who work long hours and still find lots of time for blogging and now that the madness of the holiday season is well and truly over I vow to stop putting things off until tomorrow & get motivated!

Anyway, I wore this outfit for an afternoon of walking round the city and eating Indian food at the Granville Island market. I love these snake-print pants, which I bought in the Summer and - surprise, surprise - never got round to wearing until this week. And this necklace from Topshop almost reminds me of My Little Pony, which I loved as a child! 

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend :)!

Off With Her Coat!

Having a fashion blog & only one winter coat is rather awkward, because when the weather is cold (and it has been rather chilly in Vancouver for a while now) you have to wear it every day, therefore limiting outfit photo opportunities! Back in England I had lots of warm coats and jackets (& a cape or two) acquired over about 6 years, but after moving over here this Summer with no coat at all (limited suitcase space and  weight limits meant I decided to just buy one here) I bought the black & leopard print coat in my most recent outfit post at the start of Winter and have pretty much worn it every day since. 

So today, as we left our apartment building to go for brunch, I whipped off my coat, threw it at my boyfriend's feet, thrust the camera at him and got some photos of what I was wearing before we headed out into the cold rain. I probably looked insane to anyone witnessing us leaving the building, but oh well! A blogger has to do what she has to do, right?!

Have a lovely week everyone :)!
