Destroyed denim // Simple winter styling

Typically, I hate shopping for jeans.  Sweaters, dresses and skirts are all fun to shop for, but when it comes to shopping for denim, I always have the hardest time finding pairs that flatter my petite frame.

A few weeks ago, I went shopping at Bootlegger and had the best jean shopping experience!
(shout out to Trish at Bootlegger St. Vital location for all her help!)  I must have tried on 15 pairs of jeans and somehow every pair was flattering on my body.  For this first time in what feels like forever, I branched out from my typical dark skinnies and found a pair of destroyed denim that I fell in love with.  This pair is perfectly ripped with not too many holes... but still enough to give it a little edge!

I've been wearing these jeans non-stop, but today I wanted to share a casual weekend outfit by pairing them with this simple emerald sweater & my Newchic tailored jacket.  A little bit of sparkle (in the form of a Shop PLD necklace!) & a pair of heels adds a touch of femininity to this "borrowed from the boys" look!

Winter Wonderland // Parka style with Parajumpers

It’s official… winter has definitely arrived here in Winnipeg!

For the first time in years, I was beginning to get impatient waiting for the arrival of the fluffy white snow that typically blankets our province. Not going to lie, most of my anticipation came from wanting to wear my new Parajumpers winter parka… but more on that later!

As it turns out, this year actually broke the record for the latest (first) snowfall ever recorded locally. But the weather quickly made up for the late start by sending us an epic 3-day blizzard last week! The roads were a total disaster, schools were shut down and even the best drivers opted to stay home! But boy, the freshly fallen snow sure made everything look pretty!

Upon, the first sign of the blizzard, I grabbed my husband and headed to Bird’s Hill Park to photograph today’s look. The national park always makes for a pretty drive, but with the arrival of fresh snow, it had been instantly transformed into a winter wonderland.

Mere Hotel Staycation // A Blogger's Guide to Winnipeg

My husband and I recently enjoyed a mini-vacation at the Mere Hotel here in Winnipeg. With all the holiday hustle and bustle, a romantic weekend stay in the city was exactly what we needed!

If you've never stayed in Winnipeg before, the Mere Hotel is located right between the trendy Exchange District and cozy St. Boniface. It's also nearby the bustling Forks historic site and the brand new Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
