city livin'

cardigan: jacob (old) // tee: aritzia // pants: covet at bamboo ballroom // boots: jeffrey campbell // bag: roots // watch: michael kors// lipstick: c/o: annabelle cosmetics in "vamp" 

Notice anything different? 
I'm in a city now! On the almost 5 hour drive from my tiny town to Calgary I couldn't believe that I wouldn't be doing that drive again. If you've read this blog for a while, you know I've been waiting for this moment for quite some time so I'm super excited to start this new chapter in my life. 
I'm still on the job hunt and I'm hoping to get something soon but in the meantime I'll have some time this weekend to unpack our place (we get it on Friday) and have it looking like normal again. 

Anywho, on to the outfit. Since I could only pack for a week and had to put the rest in storage, I packed a bunch of random things. At first, I didn't think this outfit was particularly "outfit post" worthy but I actually liked how comfortable it was and how it had a monochromatic feel. The only downside? I was FREEZING. Seriously, winter needs to go away ASAP. Who's with me? 

Happy Monday!
