it's matzah time !

Hello, friends!  It's been a while, I'm sorry.  I haven't posted since last Friday - I worked Friday, Saturday, and Sunday - and with Passover festivities Monday and Tuesday, the time has just disappeared.  I think also that winter exhaustion is setting in as we are STILL in winter coats here in Toronto, and I am frustrated and bored with having to dress warmly.  Tomorrow it will be my mission to find a warm AND springy outfit to lift my spirits.

These photos are from Monday, post-seder:

Pants, GAP, $60? Tank, Club Monaco, $30.
Cardigan, F21, $27.  Flower, H&M, $5. Watch, Burberry, gift from Aron.

I went thrifting on Monday during the day and scored these glasses for $8 (that Aron hates...  but it's okay because I LOVE THEM).  I have always liked the look of dark frames and these are over the top.  My prescription is too strong, so I don't usually wear glasses because even with the ultra thin lenses I feel like I'm wearing bottle caps.  Not sexy time!

Anyway, I'll be including some of my new items over the next few days so watch out!  I scored 4 skirts, 2 tops, a cardigan and these glasses for a total of $32.  Amazing! 


  1. Thrifting seriously is the best sometimes. Those glasses are super cool! What a neat find:) And I am loving those trousers.

  2. Yay, for matzah! And what a beauty of an outfit, love that you popped on that gorgeous flower pin and the colours are SO soft & lovely.

    As for your outfit question? Belt is from ModCloth and the dress is indeed from Dynamite.

    And yup, it's still cold in Vancouver too. :-( Mind you soon I'll be complaining about the heat. Hope your having a fab day! xx veronika

  3. Loving the pants and I know what you mean when you say you're trying to find a warm and spring like outfit! I AM SO SICK OF WEARING TIGHTS!

    Follow each other?

  4. I adore the nudes (or is the a soft pink...hard to tell through my moniter)...with those brown pants!!!!

  5. Cat: you are correct on both counts. I would call it a softish pink nude....?

    And sorry, but I don't believe it's your monitor - it's my crappy nighttime-with-a-flash pics.

    Thanks for your comment!

  6. Fantastic outfit, as always! I was stoked to see this because I actually have that exact same flower pin from H&M. Are you wearing it using the safety pin or the barrette part (mine came with two ways of fastening it). I'm always afraid of damaging my clothes if I use the safety pin part... Très cute!!

  7. I LOVE the glasses as well!

  8. Allison, thank you so much for your comment!

    I'm using the clip/barrette on my clothing (I'll use the pin on my wool coat though). I have to stop myself from buying more flowers each time I'm by H&M - they have a lovely selection, and they add a little spring to any outfit that needs it.
