Ahh, these photos bring up major vacation withdrawal.  Justin and I had such a fantastic time in Scottsdale, Arizona last week.  I was there for a marketing course for work, while Justin joined me to soak up some desert sun.  Our little saying all week was that I was “the fool in school, while he was cool by the pool”.  I did get my fair share of pool side lounging in though, and I was definitely able to enjoy the 90 degree weather.  Oh Arizona, I sure do miss you.

Yesterday was the Toronto Blue Jays home opener game.  For you non-sports fans, the Blue Jays are Toronto’s Major League Baseball team.  Even though I’m not really a baseball fan, Justin is a huge Jays fanatic, so we end up watching a lot of baseball in our house.  Well . . .  Justin watches a lot of baseball while I usually take that time to read fashion magazines.

 

Justin was heading to the home opener last night, and decided to create a baseball themed dinner for us and his friend.  On the menu were “franks and beans” along with a yummy macaroni salad, but where the fun part comes in is that we also decided to have a blind hot dog taste challenge.  The two opponents were the Schneider’s Juicy Jumbos versus the Chicago 58 Lanky Frankys.  We tested them both plain and fully dressed with condiments in a bun.  To make it fair, we also filled out our own secret ballots so not to influence one another.  I know you’re all on the edge of your seats waiting to find out which wiener won. . .well, it was a clean sweep. .  .the Juicy Jumbos swept both categories, and were hands down our favourites.  We’ve now decided to make the hot dog challenge an annual tradition, and next year the Juicy Jumbo’s will go head to head with another challenger.  (I know. . . my life is pretty exciting. *Sigh*)

 

Now that I’ve bored you all with my hot dog story, we can chat a little bit about fashion.  I had my eye on this Danier leather skirt for a while, and finally picked it up when it went on sale.  I just love the black and white contrast, the faux-wrap, and the buttery soft leather.

Coat: Zara. Skirt: H&M. Turtleneck: Club Monaco. Faux Fur Stole: H&M. Boots: Nine West. Rings: Stella & Dot, BCBG, H&M. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

Today I’m wearing 2 new pieces in my wardrobe that I’m madly in love with…this Zara coat and H&M skirt.  This white coat with faux leather sleeves has been hanging in my closet for a few weeks just begging to be worn.  It’s fairly lightweight however the turtleneck and fur scarf added enough layers to keep me warm.

 

H&M came out with this skirt in yellow last season, and I stalked my local H&M every week waiting for it to hit stores.  I don’t think we ever got the yellow version here in Toronto (although I could be wrong), but as soon as I saw the fabulous Nancy from Adore to Adorn wearing the new version in eggshell, I rushed to H&M that night after work to pick it up.  Thankfully, it was in stock.  I just love the texture and fullness of this skirt.

 

Those of you reading along on Instagram or Facebook may have already seen that I posted the exciting news that one of my outfits was featured in the “reader looks” section of the March issue of InStyle Magazine.  I sincerely thank you for all of the sweet compliments and congratulations.  It’s pretty fun to see my photo in print.  I must say that this would have never happend without the sweet encouragement of two amazing woman.  Several months back, the super sweet Whitley from The Queen City Style had her look featured in InStyle, and I thought it was just the coolest thing.  Then, after I wore the outfit that was featured, the always chic Sheree from It’s Not That Deep told me that I should submit my photo to InStyle, so I thought, “hey, why not?”.  One of Sheree’s gorgeous looks was also featured last month in InStyle!  Thank you ladies!
