I just want to talk a bit about this year. I have big plans and this that this is going to be an amazing year. I am planning trips and having people visit and have tons of great ideas and stuff planned for the blog. I have my down moments like everyone but I am feeling very positive about the future and things planned. I just want to keep that going and hope that I continue to feel that way, but I might need your help along the way.

But Let’s talk about what I have planned.

Well for one My brother and his family were already here for a visit, which was amazing, as well as we have a friend from Denmark coming to stay with us for 2 weeks and we have some fun stuff planned like a trip to Tofino (and you know I love Tofino). Also my boyfriend and I will be celebrating our 7th anniversary and my blogs 4th birthday (YAY). Next we have planned a bit of a euro trip in Summer obviously visiting family and friends in Denmark and Sweden but also hoping to do a little road trip through a few countries as well (but when more is planned then you will hear more). My sister and her husband are coming to visit as well because my sister and I will be going to the ONE DIRECTION concert (if you can't tell...I am super excited) and then most likely going to Tofino again with them.

I think that is all that is planned and hopefully all goes through. I also would love to be able to make a trip home, especially after having family here, it really makes me miss my family terribly, so I can’t wait to see them again.

Wednesdays Wishlist - Ski Vacation

Wednesdays Wishlist - Ski Vacation
Anon helmet, Burton snowboard pants and mitts, Acne Studios boots and scarf, Nike hoodie and sports bra, Alexander Wang beanie, T by Alexander Wang pants, Witchery socks, 3.1 Phillip Lim Bag and Balenciaga sweater

Major cravings lately for a vacation, hot or cold, I don't care. But seeing as I already showed you my Holiday in the Sun Wishlist, here is what I would want to bring on a ski vacation. A fun, quick and affordable vacation for me could be to head into the mountains to one of my favourites places, Whistler. Do some snowboarding, eat some delicious food and go out dancing. Okay, maybe not dancing, more like snuggle in bed in cozy pi's and watch TV shows and go to bed early. But my snowboard gear needs an update. I really need new pants and mitts and I don't own a helmet yet but it's always a good idea. As for the clothes to wear during a cold vacation, I want to be cozy and super warm. Wool socks, beanies, sweaters, scarves and knit pants....seem's like the perfect wardrobe for the occasion.

So here you can see my new scarf from yesterday's new in post in an outfit. I love how it turned out. I haven't worn burgundy as much this fall and winter and have mostly kept it to black, white and grey. But it is nice to change things up every now and then and keeping it still simple with all black makes it still feel like me and basic.

But....Can we talk about these shoes, as I mentioned in this post, I just love these and I am so happy I got them. Not only are they stylish but super comfortable to wear which is a big thing for me. I already know that they will be used a lot this year.

I am just smitten with my new scarf. As soon as I received this beauty I knew I how I wanted to wear it. I love the look of a neck tie scarf so I just had to try it with this and I think it turned out great. There are lots of ways other then this that it can be worn as well so I can't wait to make more outfits with this scarf. It is perfect for these colder months as well as it is 100% wool so not only is it gorgeous but warm. But for now you will get the rest of this outfit on the blog tomorrow, so stay tuned to see how I styled the whole look.

I recently just bought this black based stripe top (because you can never have enough stripe tops) so when I was going to wear it for the first time it was a no brainer for me that I needed to pair it with my leopard print coat. The reason being that even though they are both prints, don't be frighten, they are almost like basics. Stripes and Leopard print are timeless, classic staple pieces to any wardrobe. Which got me thinking about what are my essential pieces and staples in my wardrobe and this is what I came up with.

1. The basic tee. You can never go wrong with a basic tee or tank, get them in white, black, grey and you are set and if you find a style and fit you really like, get it in multiple colours because like I said its a basic top and you know it will get a lot of use.

2. The skinny jean. Again, it is one of the easiest things to wear and looks great with anything or for any occasion. It is an essential in any wardrobe no more what your style is.

3. The stripe top. French chic at its finest. I have 5 different style's and I only want more.

4. Sneakers. I can not live without my sneakers, which as I talked about in this post, I need more. Comfort and perfect for that laid back modern chic look that everyone loves. It is a need in my wardrobe.

5. The everyday bag. As women we tend to carry way to much with us so it is important to have a bag that fits all our needs (and random stuff) with us wherever we go. Not to big, not to small, not to flashy, just a simple medium sized bag.

6. A basic coat or jacket. Whatever that perfect coat is to you, whether it be a trench coat, car coat, leather jacket, you must have at least one great one that you can wear everyday, preferably in a solid basic colour.

There are obviously more pieces that we can't live without like the low heeled boots, boyfriend jeans, heels, leopard print etc. But as for my wardrobe and what I know I wear the most (like everyday) these are definitely my essentials. I can't have enough of them and that is why I am always in search of great basics. Not going to spend to much money on trends or flashy one season pieces because I want pieces that are going to last me a very long time.

I hope you liked this post and my list here and that if you are needing some wardrobe inspiration, that this helps.

This season slim turtleneck's have been a big thing. Unfortunately for me I do want really own any. The only one I have is this one in the pictures, which is cropped. I am all about staying warm in the winter time so a cropped top isn't high on my list of things to wear. But when this top is combined with another, like a crew neck top or sweater then it is perfect. Here I wore it under my favourite Acne muscle tank and I love the outcome and even though you can't see under my jacket, tank looks great over the long sleeve. I now feel like wearing this all the time in as many combinations as I can make.

What are you really into right now??

YAY...I have been wanting/needing shoes like this for a long time. So I decided to spoil and treat myself to something nice and these could not be any better. I love them both and can't wait to wear them. I probably won't wear them too much at the moment because of the cold temperatures but once it warms up, I won't be able to get these babies off my feet!! LOVE
