Quiest Things That No One Ever Knows

Hey Loves, I hope you had a great weekend. I am so exhausted right now, all I want to do is curl up in bed with my Duke and sleep away the day. Which is honestly how I think I'll spend my day, I have the day off for some doctor's appointments etc. Sometimes all you need to cure the blues is some puppy dog love and cuddles
Anyways, this is an outfit for work, it's hard to balance style, comfort and warmth now that winter has settled in. I love this thick gingham button up from Joe Fresh because it's so warm yet versatile and stylish for the winter months. I decided to dress it up with my pleated blush colour skirt and these super cozy booties. I don't wear heels all that much, but these ones are so awesome and have great traction that keeps me from falling on my butt like a fool.
Outfit: Top-Joe Fresh, Belt-Army&Navy, Skirt-F21, Booties-Marc via Auvigne and Jones, Pendant-Granville Market


  1. I love that skirt! and Mr. Duke is just sooo cute! All I wanna do is curl up with Nugget but work takes over :(

  2. Haha it really is hard to find boots that won't kill you in this snow, and i think this outfit is super cute for a chilly day. I love how the pleats feminize that gingham skirt. And yay for days off! I wish I can spend my Monday lazing around in bed- lucky duck :)

    Ps- that ring is amaaaazing, so so cool. And that concludes my gushing.

  3. Pet cuddles always make me feel better too - and I'm impressed that those boots work so well in all the slipperiness of winter...I have yet to find a pair of heeled ones that do.

  5. Love the checkered top and cute booties! And you and I both talked about why we don't wear high heels in the winter today on our blogs ; ) ha ha. Enjoy your day off!

  6. Loving that top and paired with that color skirt is fantastic!

  7. brand new reference in your title! :D

    indeed, all i wanna do is have some puppy cuddles these days. it's hard to leave for work in the mornings. and i LOVE this skirt. goodness. and high heels in the winter is hard - i mistakenly wore my heeled booties when it snowed last week as it was a surprise and slipped on my way into work as they hadn't salted or prepared for it
