Ahhh... the hoodie, such a comfortable staple! 
I'm not going to lie, I don't really own a lot of hoodies in my wardrobe but this version by Joe Fresh caught my eye. I love the colour and the material so much! I'm kinda craving the other colours too! Seriously for $49 you can't go wrong! 

In other news, I'm heading home this week! Wednesday to be exact. I am beyond excited and kinda nervous as I haven't packed AT ALL. I also have to pack for two climates so that's even tougher (I know I shouldn't complain about going somewhere hot haha). I'm such a nervous packer, anyone have any tips on how to do it efficiently? I'd love to know! 

the year of the scarf

I feel like it's the year of the scarf. 
Seriously though, scarves are always a winter staple but for some reason they're really big this year in particular. Blogs, Pinterest, Instagram they're everywhere! Joe Fresh has such a great selection that they make it really hard to leave with just one. I've accumulated quite the collection this year and I left with this one since it reminded me a little of the Zara one I missed out on last year and knew it was kinda meant to be! 
In other news, as I'm typing this it's midnight and I just got back from the movies and I work SUPER early. Why do I do this to myself all the time? I can't help it, I'm 100% a night owl. Any of you like me? How can I get myself in a routine to go to bed early? I'd love some pointers (Going to a 9:30 movie probably doesn't help hhaha) 

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

p.s If you're wondering what movie I saw it was Penguins of Madagascar. Yes,  fun fact: I LOVE kid movies and thankfully so does my boyfriend. I am happy to say I laughed the entire time! It was just what I needed for a start of a busy work week. 

Other scarves I love...

my kind of office wear

The other day when I was meeting my man downtown, I started to get kinda jealous of all the business people wearing their office-y clothes. I absolutely love dressing up but sadly I don't get to do it often. I work in HR but I have the luxury of working in a pretty casual environment so it's rare that I wear something dressy. On this particular day, I was inspired by all the 9-5 downtown workers and decided to step it up a bit. 

I'm a sucker for a great print and when I saw these pants at Zara (aka: the deadliest place ever!) I knew they had my name all over them. They're so classic yet modern and I couldn't wait to wear them! I think you can dress them up or down and the versatility is something I'm down with!

I'm curious, do you have an office job where you can dress up? Or do you have an office job with a relaxed dress code? I'd love to know!
