 Top/Dress: Brandy Melville, Cardi: Thrifted,  Leggings: H&M,  Shoes: F21Jewelry: Micheal Hill/Aldo
Why on earth did it take me so long to really look in this store? I knew in the back of my mind that it was always on Granville, but I'd always skip it and go into Urban Outfitters which is right next door. However, a couple weeks ago my sister said she wanted to go so I went with her (it's right down the street from my work) and I also started to follow them on Instagram. I'm so glad I did. I'm in love with this store and the cute outfits they put together. A little on the pricey side for really basic items, but you can find some good stuff at reasonable prices. Like this "Jade Dress" which I scored for $32. It's so cute. You can't see it, but it's got an open back which I will love in the summer time when it's all hot and sticky and I'll pair it with some cute white shorts or something.
(Side note, I found a big hole in the dress today, I quickly ran over to the store to see if they'd do an exchange for me without my receipt, and they did!)

Oh hi there, Monday

Jacket: F21,  Dress: F21 (old),  Cardi: Thrifted, Tights: H&M,  Sneakers: Topshop
Who decided that a weekend was going to be Saturday and Sunday? And who decided that it would only be 2 days? 
 By the time I got all my errands done on Saturday it was the evening time and that much closer to Sunday. I don't really think Sunday counts as a day off because I kinda stress that's its almost that dreaded Monday. Sunday I have to finish all the errands that I didn't get done on Saturday (like grocery shopping), tidy the house, go to bed early, blah blah blah. Sunday = no Funday. 2 days is just not enough.
Last "long" weekend was a 3 day weekend and it was the best. 3 days is just enough. I got everything done that I needed to get done, visited with almost all my family members and by Monday evening I felt totally refreshed. 
Countdown is on until the next "long" weekend. End of March Ugh

Thirfting gold and Giveaway Winner

Coat: Thrifted (Talula Babaton),  Dress: c/o Sugarlips,  Shoes: Forever 21,  Tights: H&M
So my sister always goes thrifting right down the street from her house and she always comes back with the most amazing finds! I decided the next time I was out there I'd go with her. 
When I finally did, I found this coat. I'm sure all you fashionistas know the store Aritzia. Well I scored this Talula Babaton jacket for 20 bucks. 20 bucks! And there's nothing wrong with it. I tried to find a similar coat to link up, but there isn't any as it's end of season. You can have a look at their website here.
And the winner of the INPINK bracelet is:

My first Giveaway! I've actually been meaning to have this for quite sometime! haha
 I won a giveaway contest over at Running on Happiness where I won these darling bracelets from INPINK. I got to choose what I wanted so instead of getting one item I got two so I could give one away! Now here's where you lovelys come in! I can't decide which one to keep!
Here's the rules:
1. Follow my blog, Style in the City and let me know you have or that you already do;
2. Tell me which bracelet you'd like in the comments!

That's it! I guess you can look at it as being in high school all over again and having a friendship bracelet =) I'll have one and the winner will have the other!
Good luck! Winner will be announced on Valentines Day, February 14!

Kitty Surgeries and a side of colour blocking

So the past several days have been tough! My two kittiy cats Esme and Ryder went to have surgeries on Friday. I dropped them off at 9 am and picked them up at 5. If you follow along on my instagram I posted a couple photos of their little cones they have to wear. They HATE them. I hate them. I'm so in love with these two little kids and even more now that they have to go through this annoyance. At least they have each other...(and i JUST got back from the vet hence why this post is so late. Little Esme got her cone off today while I was at work and took her stitches out. We just got home from the vet with little Esme and 4 staples. Poor baby)
Anyways, this morning I was feeling a lot more positive so I decided to wear a little colour blocking. Who doesn't love a little colour blocking.

Sweater and Skirt: F21, Shoes: Ardene, Tights: H&M
Hopefully this week picks up!
