Sunday Lunch Outfit

On Sunday I had a lovely lunch with my best friend Nicole and our friend Sabrina. The three of us haven't hung out together since the summer so it was about time we got to catch up! I recently purchased this coat from ANTHROPOLOGIE, wait for it... ON SALE. Originally it was around $240 (I can't quite remember) but I got it for $60!!!! I couldn't believe I was getting such an amazing deal from this store since they're stuff is expensive. I also walked away with a great book called "A Denim Story" for about $12-14, so I was really happy. 

I really wanted to wear my new coat and all was fine until we decided to browse around the mall for a bit. I couldn't believe how hot it was in there! In every store I was BOILING, not even exaggerating. So before you decide to wear a very warm coat make sure it's cold enough so that you won't be sweating like crazy in it!

 I apologize for the bad lighting, turns out the lighting in the mall is not very good for taking photos in. Regardless, the photos turned out great considering they were taken on my phone and Nicole was kind enough to take them for me, so THANK YOU!! XO


Rainy Day Blues

On this particular day, it was just pissing it down with rain (if you look close enough you can see the edges of my sneakers are soaked). My uncle was in town that week and this was my only day off so we decided to go downtown to do a bit of shopping... Although we didn't purchase anything, sigh. I think this is about as intricate as my layering will get, though I will keep trying! Also, may I add, I bought these jeans from the AA website during the Cyber Monday sale and got these for about $40 off. For those of you who are AA shoppers, I think you can appreciate how satisfied I was with that purchase because their stuff is bloody expensive!! They ended up being cheaper than regular priced jeans at Topshop (Their jeans are usually cheaper than AA ones)! 

I really want my hair to grow so I'm trying my best to avoid any heat on my hair that can damage it, so I put it into a low bun and threw on a hat. I really like the boy-vibe this outfit has since I've been drawing a lot of inspiration from these masculine looks. Oh, and I recently discovered tucking in your sucks into your jeans is the perfect way to stay warm without having to wear boots. Try it out!

Little Update

20150123


Hello again friends and a Happy New Year! Wowza, it's been a while since my last post. If you're wondering about my absence here's my explanation:

1) Last semester I was taking classes that really captivated my interest. When I become passionate about something it usually tends to take up all of my time, and that's exactly what happened. I decided to focus all of my energy on studying for my courses because I wanted to do well in them, especially since (finally) I was really enjoying the classes! I can proudly say I did exceedingly well, ending up with great final grades. Hopefully I'll have the same luck this semester...

2) Since I took a love for my school work my passion for this blog was put on the back-burner. I don't think people realize how much time and effort goes into maintaining a fashion blog, especially since I'm an OCD freak who has to make sure my posts are nothing less from perfection. Therefore, it was a matter of 'something's gotta give' so unfortunately I have neglected updating my blog.

3) I just absolutely hate winter so I'm rarely motivated to dress up and do my hair and makeup. Besides, even though I try really hard, I don't think I've quite mastered the art of layering. In fact, I just end up looking like a huge blob OR the concept in my head doesn't translate into real life so I just become extremely frustrated. I promise once it starts getting warmer I will be posting a lot more!!!

4) Even though I had a month off for winter break, I spent the majority of it catching up with friends, on movies, reading, etc. So unless if you guys wanted to see a post of me in my pj's, there was not much to document.

Anyways, enough of my excuses, all I hope is that you guys can understand and forgive my absence! I have made several new years resolutions for myself and one of them is to update my blog more often. Whenever you guys give me such nice comments about my blog, it not only warms my heart beyond belief, but also motivates me to keep you guys interested and satisfied with my content. I don't want you guys thinking that your support goes unappreciated because you guys have no idea how much your positivity means to me!

Here's to a brand new year, a fresh start, and so so many great things to come! XO

P.S.- Here are some photos from my Instagram since the beginning of the year. FYI for the most part my Instagram is consistently updated so make sure to follow me to stay up to date! @emilijabaranac
