We rarely get snow in my neck of the woods, but we’ve had a lot more than usual this winter. Fortunately, novel weather makes for new and exciting wardrobe possibilities, like the new toque I bought at a Christmas market (SO comfortable). I’m also sporting my new leggings from http://additionelle.com which honestly aren’t super warm, but are definitely super cute. I’m into the whole printed leggings thing and these are great.
Btw: I have, on more than one occasion, been confronted by a stranger in the street asking me “Did you really get that in New York??”, referring to my hoodie. For the record to those haters, yes, I surely did get it in NYC – so mind ya business! 😉

Well, an all black outfit seems appropriate for this week’s events. This dress is super comfortable, and I’ve added a little sass with the leopard print pumps. At least if the world ends, I’ll be going out in style 🙂
These pants are from Nadia Aboulhosn’s latest collection for Addition Elle. I’ve paired them with a top from her collection from last year. I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to find enough occasions to wear them, but I loved them so much I couldn’t not buy them. I’ve actually worn them twice since I bought them a couple of weeks ago. The first time was to the grocery store 🙂

I’ve long admired a white jean…on the rack. However, whenever I tried a pair on, I became convinced that white jeans were developed as an international conspiracy to create an article of clothing LESS flattering than complete nudity.You know, a pair of pants that say “Hey leg cellulite, let’s make YOU the star of the show!” And while I’m not at all ashamed of my cellulite, I’m rarely looking for a pant that makes it the focal point of my look. Then I found these at http://thebay.com and I started to think that maybe everything was going to be ok.

This post is very much a celebration of the fact that, for the first time, I went on vacation with only 2-piece swimsuits. No 1-piece to fall back on. For me, the joy is not about conforming to a certain beauty standard or showing certain parts of my body, but all about loving my body exactly as it is and wearing what makes me feel beautiful.
