Weekly Outfit Roundup

Whoooa blizzard week! We got a ton of snow in the city on Thursday and Friday and I had the joy of shoveling myself out of the driveway - not cool. Really wishing I had bought that snowblower now. Actually all I really need is some road salt, but it's sold out everywhere - of course. And Ottawa is terrible at snow removal. My street is reduced to one lane (and saying its one lane is fairly generous - my little celica gets through fine, but barely). Ah well, I won't bore you all with snow rants. I have been spending a lot of time indoors (haha when I'm taking breaks from shoveling or walking 4km to work...) so here's what I've been loving on the internets lately:

1//  Just discovered the blog Note To Self which pretty much made me decide to change my blog design - speaking of....what are your thoughts? I'm liking the simple design a lot better, I had a really hard time trying to figure out what my header should be...I made at least 20 header designs :P
2//  Getting super pumped for Lululemon's Warehouse Sale on Jan 20-22 :) I've got a list (and budget) but mainly am looking for running shorts for the summer. Maybe a pullover too. My best friend is also writing a list for me so I'll be shopping for her too since she's in Calgary. Any tips for Warehouse Sales? Anyone been to a Lululemon  one before? What kind of deals? (I'm assuming its about 40% and mainly stuff they're trying to get rid of)
3//  If you like to use the should watch this.
4//  Very appropriate for everyone in Ontario right now: How to keep warm in your freezing cold house.

Enjoy the Roundup :)

  1. I love what you did in your Friday outfit in combining the bright top/sweater with the grey snood :) Also, I really like the new header (especially the little sequins)!

  2. I was at the Lululemon warehouse in Ottawa a few years back. Lining up outside at -20 for 4 hours wasn't fun at all!! Heard this year going to be inside line-up so that's a plus. There were lots of great deals but don't expect to get a lot of basics, like hoodies and black pants there. Have fun!

  3. Loving your new banner! I need to change mine soon too. Something fresh.

    Your outfits are fabulous, dear. I think my favorite is the navy blazer, gray J. Crew <3 sweater, and the awesome electric blue pants!


  4. My favorite is your Saturday outfit. I love your hair and glasses!

  5. @Liv, thanks so much! I really thought the outfit was too bright for winter, but the snood helped tone it down. So glad you like the new design:D:D:D

    @Small Town Gal, thanks for letting me know! I figured it would be mainly the stuff that basically goes to loot or random uglies :P I was hoping for plain black items :(

    @The Midwest Muse, thanks so much :)

    @Larissa, thanks girl :) I've had the same one for a year and just really didn't know what to change it to! Thanks again! That was a fun outfit :)

    @LyddieGal, hahaha thank you! I find dressing fun or brightly can really lift your spirits in crummy weather :)

    @Jenn, thanks girl! I have always loved pairing brown with navy, I must do it more often. Glad that link could help!

    @Vel, hehe definitely check it out. Thanks so much - I'm glad to get some feedback on it. I had a hard time trying to find something that would work nicely, I'm really glad this color combo does :)

    @Jackie, thank you! So glad you did! You're too sweet, hope you stick around :)

    @Ricardo Minana, thank you!

    @Sasha, you're welcome - anything to help a fellow dancer :) Good luck with it. And thank you! I'm adoring brights in the winter now!

    @The Jones, thanks girlie :) hahaha I can not get enough of these (faux) leather jegging, they are super comfy - more so than my regular jegging. I find my style is very "librarian chic" so I try to dress more casual/daring on the weekends :) you're too sweet <3

    @samecookiedifferent, aww thank you!

    thanks for visiting everyone <3 you're all so lovely!

  20. Thanks for stopping by Fashion Truffles! I'm so happy to have found your blog :)

  21. I especially loved the first and third outfits!!! I may use them as inspiration for work outfits :) Nice!

    I hear you on wishing your town was better at snow removal. Where I live, they don't use salt. THEY DON'T USE SALT. Where I am from (oh Midwest I miss you), they know how to take care of the roads. Here, I pretty much park when it snows and drive again in the spring. They just don't take care of the roads well enough to risk it!

  22. I love your J.Crew wonderland puffer! You have great preppy style :) Always enjoy visiting your blog.

  23. @Viviana, you're welcome! glad you're enjoying it :)

    @Lisa Lisa Lisa, thank you - glad to inspire :) hahaha I know exactly what you mean! Seriously, these cities need to clean how to take care of the roads!!

    @Katerine, thank you, I have always had a soft spot for all things preppy :) and the puffer is sooo comfy and cozy :D

    thanks for stopping by ladies!
