Nathan and I took a little scenic drive today to find some snow. You cant bring an Australian home with you to Canada and not show them some snow, right? So we set forth on our mission - and succeeded! We found the loveliest walking trail with a foot of snow on each side. Nathan was in heaven, I was freezing! Snow truly is so beautiful though. I forgot how much I missed it until I was actually standing in it. It just makes everything so much brighter. We had fun taking these photo's - and I thought it would be the perfect time to finally debut my leopard jacket! I got this jacket from Tieka about two months ago, and it was just sitting in my closet in Australia getting weird looks from all of my friends, but I knew there would come a time when this wonderful peice would get off the hanger and today was the day! I paired it with a new (and favorite!) dress of mine. I got this for 2 dollars at Value Village. I seriously missed Value Village so much. I always find someone I absolutely love everytime I go in there, and I spent extra long this time because it had been so long and came out with so many treasures, this velvet dress was one of them! My velvet collection is growing at a fast rate but I couldnt be more thrilled. Velvet is so classy especially in winter!

Ive had this deep love for talk shows ever since I got home. I used to be pretty bad with them. Anytime I had a free chance I would turn on the TV and watch Oprah or Ellen or the good ole Dr Phil - but I seriously havent been able to go a day without watching all three! I know, im terrible, but I guess im soaking it all back in. Do you guys like talk shows? Am I the only nut job? Speaking of Oprah..shes on soon, so im out of here! Have a great rest of your day!! x

Velvet Dress - Thrifted

  3. I'm glad you were able to find some snow, the pure white of winter is just beautiful! It's so perfect for style blog pictures, because it makes for such a clean backdrop!

    That dress is an amazing find! I went thrifting today and all of the dresses were dreadful! Thrifting is like gambling, and you hit the jackpot m'dear!

  4. Totally miss Value Village too. It was my wardrobe mecca while I was in Canada. They have nothing that comes even close here in the UK {where I live now}. The velvet dress is a perfect Value Village score!

  15. Oh my gosh Kate this outfit is amazing! And it reminds me of this dress I have for sale in my shop that looks exactly like it only in burgundy color. I only wish it fit me!

    You are quite a style genius to pair it with that coat. I love how it jazzes the outfit up even more!

  52. These are such lovely pictures. It must be weird to have just come from a place where it's summer still and now you are standing in a giant field of snow! No wonder you're watching a lot of talk shows!
    I wouldn't mind them if it weren't for all the commercials...

    you look amazing in leopard!

  62. That snow is so beautiful, it must be so exciting to show someone snow for the first time. I practically worship snow. I love your outfit, I really want to try something like this with the opposing sleeve length, you look great. I wish we had value village in NY! That dress is an amazing find.
