stripes and mocs

Feb 11, 2014

Say hello to my make-up free mug and turbo fast outfit photos. I like to fuss with my photos just as much as the next gal, but, some days it's just so refreshing to snap a quick photo or two and be on my merry way. Especially when I have a date with my honey and we're off to enjoy our favourite pho place. Mmmm!

This past weekend was a bit of a mixed bag. On Friday, I put my back out, ended up on the floor and couldn't move. It was painful and mind numbingly boring. Oh man! So glad to be up & moving around again. We spent a bit of our long weekend running errands and peeking at our favourite home decor shops. We're in the market for a new area rug, floor lamp, art for our gallery wall + I just discovered the cutest pouf for our home!! Can't wait to nab one. And my outfit? Oh you know, comfy and casual. That's how I roll! ;)

Jacket: Forever 21 / similar
Dress: Gap / similar
Ring: XO Veronika (coming soon!!)
Bag: c/o Handbag Heaven (old)
Leggings: Joe Fresh
Shoes: Joe Fresh (similar)

26 sweet notes:

  1. Great jacket and ring! You look so lovely!

  11. You put your back out?! Ouch!! Glad to see that you're up and at 'em again, dear Veronika...and looking as casual-chic as always!! Love the military jacket over your little striped dress (I've done a look very similar to it!) and those moccasins are the epitome of boho-ness!! Are they as easy to wear as they look?!

    that ring! love it big time. i was thinking today how perfect it is for you to be a shop owner now, getting to test drive all these fab wears/wares must be like a kid in a candy store all the amazing time!!! yah. xo

  17. Amber, thank you for the sweet compliment! I'm usually a little apprehensive to not wear make-up... but I'm trying to take breaks. Plus, it makes getting ready so much faster!! Loveliest week to you!! xoxo

  18. Lynn, thank you!! Note, I probably look okay without make up because the camera is far away. Haha! ;) And isn't the ring rad?! It's such a fun piece... love the marbled stone. As for test driving product?! Heck yes, I'm my number one customer!! xoxo

  19. Oh my gosh, yes, my back was out and I spent two days on the floor... totally brutal. I have a whole new appreciation for legs and walking! As for the moccasins? So easy to wear, they go with so much + I feel like I'm out in my slippers. Bonus!! xoxo

  20. Amy, thank you!! I'll admit the lighting was pretty good in these photos and helped my "no make-up" look. As for the back? Taking it easy for sure. Sitting seems to be the most painful at the moment! Boo, makes working a little difficult! xoxo
