Lacing a crown

I know that skinny jeans are a thing. They have been for a while. I even bought a skinny-ish pair a couple of year ago. But I bit the bullet and got a proper skinny pair, the kind that even my ankles know about.

I also got this shiny top from the sale section. I think I'm super into gold at the moment. Maybe it makes me feel wealthy when clearly my savings account is dwindling more day by day (oh job that I want and that wants me, where are you??).

top: Ricki's sale
thermal: Walmart
blazer: Ricki's
jeans: Cleo
boots: Bull Boxer



Also here's a thought: If you are designing boots, and they have a lining, you would think that you might consider that these boots very possibly might be taken out in snow and ice. Right? You might want to consider putting some sort of grip on them. Seriously my ab muscles are getting such a work out from tensing up when almost falling over. Silver lining? 

Today I am so thankful for my auntie and uncle lending me their car whilst they were away. I felt like a real person. I was able to do errands. I was able to pick the Gentleman Caller up for once. I could shop for groceries any time I wanted. I cannot tell you how isolating it is to not have a job or anyone to talk to, not be able to go anywhere and not even be able to leave the house for a walk because it's far too cold. Thank you thank you!!!

The gold really brings out your hair color! I feel like skinny jeans have been a thing forever but I still only own 1 pair!

I'm a sucker for golden yellow every time - and this outfit literally had me gasping with excitement - haha! You look amazing. I love it.

I really hope you are able to find a job soon! It's got to be hard especially if it has to be within walking distance.

Love the yellow top - I've been into yellow lately as well.

Love love love love love that shirt. Love it. My in-laws have a gift card for me for my birthday that I finally get this weekend, and while I've already mentally spent it at Ikea, or Le Chateau, seeing this shirt makes me hope its a gift card from Rickis!

That shirt looks so good with your hair colour! And the jeans look like they were made for you! (I've still never worn skinny jeans but seeing you in them is getting me a step closer.)

I also hear you on the "winter gear" that cannot stand up to snow, ice or deep cold. Some "parkas" seem to be made for winter in Texas, not the Canadian prairies.
