 Laundry by Shelli Segal Quilted Jacket via Nordstrom Rack (save, spend, splurge) / Philip Lim x Target BOOM Sweater (similar) / Urban Behavior Jeans (super duper old, naturally distressed over the years) / Old Navy Long-Sleeve Shirt / JustFab Pemberley Booties / JustFab Prodigy Bag / H&M Knit Infinity Scarf (old)


On Black Friday I bribed my friend asked my friend Tina to play photographer - and although she agrees begrudgingly, she always gets some of the best shots (check out Tina playing photog in some of these posts). We were avoiding the holiday shopping crowds and went to a stand-alone movie theater to watch the new Hunger Games movie - Catching Fire! The movie was super long but done so well. It stuck very closely to the book and that's probably why it was 2.5 hours long - there's a lot of details to include! If you haven't seen it, don't miss out! I am actually going to watch it a 2nd time at the end of the month with my BF, his sister & her fiance in Toronto :)

So back to the BOOM - I went just as crazy for the Philip Lim x Target collection as everyone else. I was up at 1-2 am, scouring the twitter hashtag for all the links that were slowly but surely coming out. I ordered way too many pieces from the collection and although I loved the clothing in person, nothing fit! It was definitely a very roomy line and thus everything was returned. Enter Target clearance racks... I was going rack by rack one day when this BOOM sweatshirt caught my eye - I originally wasn't sold on it from the pictures online but in person it was so soft that I snatched it up for... $8 bucks!!! Now that's a bargain! (Currently available online for $21)

This outfit isn't something you'd normally see me in... for a girl who will use any reason to dress up, it's super casual. Plus all the layers! I am slowly learning how to dress in the winter people (FYI, I suck at it). Throw a long-sleeve tee-shirt on under a sweatshirt, wear a pair of sweater tights under your distressed denim, add on a knit infinity scarf and top it off with a quilted jacket to keep you nice and insulated.

I hope everyone has a great weekend!
