More Snow! And Many Adventures Today

Today's forecast: more snow! Yikes! With this in mind, again, I dressed warmly:
A whole lotta layerin' goin' on. I have a long-sleeved tee under my camel dress (first seen here), with my denim skirt underneath that (blatantly violating the company's dress code, but what are they going to do? Fire me?). I also have on tights, knee-high socks and boots.

Today is a bit nutty. I have a dentist appointment that takes me an hour to get to by bus - and it's in the middle of the afternoon (because I scheduled it when I thought I would be out of work), so I have to get back to work after...another hour+ by bus.
Then I have an eyebrow waxing (my one luxury) downtown, and then it's our fantasy football pool re-draft! I am in first place (wee!) with a few people breathing down my neck, so I need to do some prep work. Spreadsheets and such.

The stuff:
I love that belt buckle. It rules!

I've had this necklace for years:
I like that the stones are real stones, not plastic.

The leg business:
I wore these boots last winter and they are great in the ice and snow.

I am taking tomorrow and Friday off work, to watch football all day with my guys (I'm making turkey burgers in honour of US Thanksgiving) and then hang out with Ruth on Friday - I'm also going to the theatre with Mom and my nieces. And I have Weight Watchers training all weekend! Crazy!

Happy Thanksgiving to my US friends!

Dress (Coupe), tee (Press), denim skirt (Bebe, swap from Caro), tights (Voila), socks (Point Zero, I think), boots (Indigo by Clark's, consignment), necklace (Plum), belt (Shi Studio).


  1. That necklace, boots... and the belt buckle! I'm in love with that belt buckle! You look so Western, but not hokey at all!

    Have I mentioned that belt buckle is a real treasure?

  2. That belt buckle does rule! I love the tights + socks + boots. I hope you enjoy your training sessions!

  3. Gosh, I forget how much I love red and turquoise together until I see it. The addition of that orange-y tan is awesome!

    Happy (American) Thanksgiving to you too! :)

  4. Oooh! To still be in temperature where wearing tights and socks makes wearing a skirt permissible! Well, we are expecting warmer temperatures this weekend, so I'll keep the combo in mind!!

  5. Wow I remember snow in Vancouver in 1995 or 1996! Nobody came to work but me (I walked or rather climbed through the snow) and another guy. Everyone else got snowed in! Do jewelry shops still have that gazillion %% off sale if it snows on Christmas?

    I love your look! The boots are yummy.

  6. I like it when we can share our holiday with Canadians! Have a great day, buddy.

  7. I really love this! The layering is absolute perfection and I think that may very well be the coolest belt ever!

    I chuckled a little at your comment about the eyebrow wax being your one luxury, because...yeowch!

  8. giggles at the phrase "leg business"

  9. What fabulous layering! That necklace is lovely. Turquoise is one of my favorite stones. Love the unique geometric pattern on the socks.

  10. "blatantly violating the company's dress code, but what are they going to do? Fire me?"

    hee hee! i love getting away with stuff....and that ahs got to be th e world's most faboo belt buckle! steph

  11. SNOW !??
    OMG... I wish I could send a sunny day your way.
    It has been insanely hot here these last days.
    That red+turquoise combo is always a hit.
    have a good weekend Sheila :)

  12. Hope that you enjoyed the snow, Sheila! I love how you layered up. :) Turquoise is such a beautiful complement to red, isn't it?

    Our snow is all gone by now, though. (I kind of bent our company's dress code on Tuesday as well - it was cold and icy enough that it was warranted!)

  13. Thanks, 'Doll! I love the belt buckle too. It's from the "Lasso Line" at Shi Studio (I'm not getting any money from them):

    LaHdeM, thanks!

    Kristen, same here - it's a combo I haven't done for a while. Thanks!

    Wendy, thanks!

    Cara, I know, we're lucky! I hope it wasn't so cold for you!

    Tanya, yes, the winter of 1996 was insane - I remember that! I have no idea about jewelry stores, if they do that. Thanks!

    Thanks so much, Ralph - I hope your Thanksgiving was awesome. :)

    Pear, thank you so much! Aw, eyebrow waxing is a snap - barely hurts more than a bandaid. ;)

    Thanks, Tessa! Hee!

    Megan, thank you! I've had the necklace for a few years.

    Ha, yeah, I agree, Steph! Thanks!

    Lorena, let's trade! Thanks so much, hon, I hope you had a great weekend too!

    Thanks, Kari! I hope it treated you well too! I love turquoise and red/orange - they look so good together. Heh, don't you love feeling like you got away with a dress code violation? ;)

  14. First of all....that buckle is too awesome for words! Secondly, have you tried eyebrow threading? I have heard about it here and there through the blogosphere and finally tried it out for myself over the weekend. While I wouldn't call it painless it is definitely better than waxing and much less painful then that. It's a kind of irritating feeling but because there is no hot was my skin loved it much more and my brows look fantastic! I would totally recommend it :)

  15. Thanks, K! No, I've heard of threading but haven't tried it - I'm supremely lazy when it comes to my brows, and waxing is super-fast, so that's what I do. However, I'll check it out - thanks!

  16. You're officially the queen of layering. You have unique ideas I've never thought of that really work!

  17. Thank you so much, Jen, and thank you also for commenting on my blog! I will check yours out. :)
