Welcome to my first post of 2014!!
I can't believe it's already 2014 let alone Jan 6th? ! I've been waiting for this year to come for a while. We will be moving to a city (Calgary) in February and I'll finally be close to everything! No more small town life for this girl! I know it doesn't sound like a big deal but I've struggled so much being somewhere where I don't know anyone and the fact that it's 100% a different environment from what I'm used to. I don't really do New Year resolutions but this year I really hope I embrace my new surroundings with open arms and ultimately strive to be a better version of myself.
Anyways, since I got back from Florida I've been a bit sad being in the snow again and I've just been living in comfy clothes trying to keep warm. Comfy to me is boyfriend jeans and a warm sweater. My lovely boyfriend got me this great sweater from Aritzia for Christmas and these boyfriend jeans from Gap were on super sale when I went shopping in Florida and were impossible to resist.
Also if you follow me on Instagram, you'll see my recent addition to my bag collection. I literally gasped when I saw this tiny bag sitting all by itself and decided it needed a friend (me). Isn't it super cute? It can fit my phone and the essentials which is great in my books.

Did you get any good deals over the holidays? I'd love to know!

Happy Monday!


  1. Love the little leopard bag! It is totally adorable.

  2. This coat is amazing and I'm basically running to target to see if they still have some. I love this whole casual look, definitely going to have to recreate it for back to school :)

  3. Love the buffalo check scarf! I'm so obsessed with that print lately.

  5. Love this look Melanie! Very winter chic and eeeeeeee you're moving to Calgary?! How exciting!!

  6. That is the cutest little bag! I didn't realize it was so small when I saw it on Insta.

    Being back in the cold is always depressing. I'm a week back from Florida now and still missing it. You are moving so soon, so that's something to really be excited about!!
