They build buildings so tall these days

Sometimes it's so easy to get caught up in the hustle & bustle of everyday life. The past few days of non-stop work, & (shameful) neglect of proper sleep/nutrition have left me exhausted & a little out of it. Thankfully my work is wonderfully understanding & I was able to go home sick from work today. 

What ensued was some much-needed wholesome food (delicious delicacies from Gorilla Food raw vegan cafe), some fresh air on a beautiful day, & some well-appointed laughter from seeing the latest Muppets movie. We also quickly popped into the quaintest used bookstore I've ever seen, MacLeod's (on the corner of Richards & West Pender). The very definition of organized chaos, this place is my idea of heaven - books floor to ceiling; shelves upon shelves; random stacks higher than me, just threatening to topple at any given moment…. delightful! 

Now I'm home & happily preparing for bed before 9pm. Thank goodness for the littlest things that make you feel so much better. 

I was wearing:
Military-style jacket - Zara
Peach cropped sweater - Vintage
Navy velvet skirt - American Apparel (new)
Lace-up oxfords - F21
Earmuffs - Burberry
Bag - H&M

It feels so good to finally get a new post in, however fashion-less it may seem. I've got some lovely new things to show you over the next few days & am also looking forward to getting in several outfit photoshoots - stay tuned :)

  6. Such a great post love! I'm absolutely in love with your outfit, it's such a chic but effortless winter look. And I love MacLeod's! It's one of my favourite places in the city. The one thing I'm not crazy about is Gorilla's, I went there once and had the worst service, but I do keep hearing rave reviews about the food so maybe I should give it another shot! Glad you got some much-needed rest :)
