In the meantime, I have also accumulated many images that should hopefully help me go through the winter (sartorially speaking), found new enticing tunes, watched enough episodes of comedy show Kids In The Hall to annoyingly quote them (I'll spare you), started taking care of a stray cat in my neighbourhood, and had my hair cut even shorter than last time (now that I have had my short fix, I just want it to be a little longer--should be perfect in a month).
Without further ado, here's the first part of the long list of things I like at the moment:
Interesting outerwear, because it's getting pretty cold outside.
|I very much like how sleek and undistracting her hair is. Her outfit is composed of almost exclusively black, yet the textures of the different materials and the trench coat keep it from the "Vogue editor" look, and bring it nearer to what I associate with well-dressed artists and spies from old movies.|

|Although I just praised a good use of black, I also very much like a combination of different darker colours. I'm not too big on bright colours, but I find that many darker colours can be mixed with a harmonious but subdued effect. And the turban! You know I'm mad about turbans!|
|This look combines two of my favourite winter wears: the colourful wool scarf to keep both ear and neck warm (something I've taken up doing last winter), and simple black riding boots. My riding boots are tan and my winter coat is black, so I walk around like a reversed version of this, but I'm tempted to get a second pair of boots, in black, similar to these which are not unlike Ukrainian cossack boots.|

|Talking about turbans... I bought this Good Night, Day simcoe headband earlier this fall when the amazing Tara-Lynn visited the Puces Pop fair in my town. It is incredibly soft, and makes going out in the cold much easier. It most certainly is one of my best purchases this season, as I wear it very often.|

It's been such a long time, how have you been? Any new winter looks you've been into?
I'm on a short break from school, so I'll post again very soon (I'm on a good blog-related idea roll)! x
