I'm a new member of this crazily addictive site! Follow me at username: CANNES! I'd love to see what kind of boards you ladies have also!
Here are some of my outfits I'm looking to build that I pinned on Pinterest:

And have you guys seen this girls blog? She's probably in my top 2 for style. And her photography is amazing also!

Cardi: Zara, Button up: F21, Tank: Dynamite, Leggings: Aritzia, Boots: Famous Footwear
I'm getting really frustrated with these photos. Ugh. It's windy, rainy and dark outside and I just walked in the door. Enough said.
Can't wait for my new camera!

Black Friday starts today! Coupon Code for GoJane

Top: Hand me down, Skirt: Le Chateau, Tights/Shoes: Ardene
We don't have Black Friday here in Canada. We do however, get to enjoy Black Friday online! My friend and I bought 3 pairs (Loafers, Wedges and boots) of shoes today from GOjane for $55! Holy smokes! Use coupon code GJ25R for 25% off regular priced items. This code expires on November 28! 
GOjane is one of my favourite online shops to get shoes from because they are sooo affordable and comfortable. It can be quite pricey to ship to Canada and it does take over two weeks depending where you are. If you live by the US border or have a friend who goes across often (thanks Jen!), it's worth it to pick them up from a letter carrier or letter box. 
Happy shopping!

Blowing by

Quick post today. We had a monstrous wind storm here last night which kept me up most of the night.

This dress

Dress: H&M,  Cardi: Target, Shoes: Shoe Warehous, Bracelets: Tiffany's/Michael Hill/Gift
I went to H&M one day on my lunch break, had four things in my hands to try on, one of them being this dress, tried them all on and took everything, but this dress. I got back to work and couldn't stop thinking about it! I saw a dress similar to this one at Aritzia and fell in love, but wasn't ready to spend $80.00 on it. I wasn't looking for a dress anyways. 
Anyways, back to my story. I couldn't stop thinking about this dress, so I went back after work and purchased it. Ever happen to you? You try something on, then say "Nah" and leave it behind only to regret it later on. Within a matter of hours you're back at the store, in line with it! Me me me!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Top: Ardene, Jeggings: Hollister, Boots: Hunter, Belt: ??
Today was pretty cold out. I decided to go against the rules and wear something totally inappropriate to work (I work at a law office - skirts and dresses most days) only because my boss is away for the week and I had a crappy sleep last night. 
This is the first time I've worn my Hunters with thick, cozy socks. Let me tell you, I feel like I brought my hard-to-get-out-of-warm bed with me in these boots. Hunter boots may not look comfortable, but they actually are! And when you wear thick warm socks of your choice, they get even better! Sheesh, that sounded like a crappy infomercial. 
Speaking of boots, has anyone come across these?
I remember having them as a kid and we called them "duck boots." I want a pair again.
Happy Hump Day!

Calling all Brides to be!!

Sweater: F21, Top: Old Navy. Skirt: American Apparel, Booties: GoJane
Now, I don't know if I am the last to know about this site, but I was perusing pinterest when I came across Style Me Pretty. OMG! I think this is the greatest wedding idea site ever and I've seen A LOT.
To get more categories click Wedding Inspiration then on the right hand side click any of the Categories. This puts you to a page with an even longer list of different categories from Reception to Favors!
I'd also like to draw your attention below:

This is what I'll be buying myself for Xmas. Well after Xmas. This is my goal. Friends and family who read my blog...BEST BUY gift certificates, k? I've wanted a new camera for a very long time. I could have made an impulse purchase a very long time ago, but didn't, so I think I deserve it by now =) I'll be Mrs. Paparazzo when I get it. And hopefully take better photographs instead of in front of a door or closet.

A good weekend

Jacket: Guess, Hoodie: Aritzia/TNA, Top: F21, Skirt: Le Chateau, Scarf/Shoes: Ardene
This past 3-day weekend was extremely uneventful. B and I were nestled in our apartment for all of it. Only venturing out once for a quick grocery shop. It's amazing when you do absolutely nothing how quickly time goes by!  
The rainy, windy weather allowed us not to feel guilty about staying in. I love lying on my chesterfield all wrapped up in blankets staring at the terrible weather outside. It actually makes me feel very thankful for what I have. A place to live, a comfy couch, and endless amounts of blankets.
Happy Monday all!

It's Remembrance Day here in Canada. I haven't forgotten what the vets have done for this Country <3
Happy long weekend all!

Blazer: Dynamite, Dress: ASOS, Shoes: Shoe Warehouse
Further to my last post, I will also advise you ahead of time that I will probably be talking about how freaking cold it is in Vancouver over the next couple of months. If it feels this cold already and it's only the beginning over November, I can only imagine how cold it's going to get in December/January. If you've ever been to Vancouver in the winter you know our cold is a wet-straight to the bones kind of cold. Eesh.

Baby it's cold (and dark) outside

Cardi: Walmart, Tank: H&M, Leggings: Garage, Booties: Aldo Kids

Inside photos today. You may see a lot of them in the upcoming months. It's getting colder and becoming darker each and every day. I think I need to go on a shopping splurge for comfy sweaters to get me through this fall and winter. And H&M has a lot right now =)
Happy Monday!

Pony up

Trench: Old Navy, Top: ASOS, Leggings: Walmart, Boots: GoJane, Bracelets: Gift/Troll

This is my new favourite top. I'm really digging the animal print right now. I scored this one on ASOS. I will tell you that I had been eying it for quite some time, but wanted the price to go down. When it did, my size sold out very quickly (of course!) =(. After some sulking I decided to go back and hit refresh a couple of times and it worked!
Me and my pony's were meant to be <3

Hola Mexico!

This is my favourite picture from the whole trip. B and I looking out into the ocean at the incoming Tropical Storm that was headed our way.

This is the resort we stayed at. We stayed at the Mayan Palace (there are 4 resorts in Barcelo) and it was unbelievable. The food , the staff, the pools, the beach. Incredible. I highly highly recommend this resort if you're planning on traveling to the Mayan Riviera, Mexico.

Playa Del Carmen. If you want to be harassed or learn how to barter this is the place to do it. Even more amazing beaches and souvenir shopping here.

The view from my brother and sister-in-law's room. Not too shabby!

Me and my sissy. I had THE greatest time ever with her <3. I'm wearing an ASOS dress and hers is GoJane.

The reason we went. My brother got hitched! I couldn't ask for a better sister-in-law and soon to be my bridesmaid!

All around FAB time! I only wish this place was closer to home!
