VINTAGE coat ACNE blouse WILFRED trousers ZARA boots TOPSHOP hat BROWNS clutch
When I wrote this post I could have sworn I wrote a complete description and everything and saved it and then I posted it and the description disappeared... I have no idea what happened, anyways.. I had been flipping through my family photo albums and noticed my mom wearing this coat in a few of the photographs. I asked her to find it for me and thank God she was able to find it because I absolutely love this coat! I love how it has a vintage vibe with the leather and fur collar but I feel like this style of coat is actually quite popular right now. It's a really warm coat surprisingly so it's a good thing I found it now because I can wear it during these cold days.

Recently I've had a few changes in my life! First of all, I no longer work at Topshop anymore which I'm quite sad about. I loved working there and met so many amazing people I'm truly going to miss everyone! But I got hired at Aritzia which is pretty exciting. For those of you who might not have heard of Aritzia I highly recommend you check out their website, they have GORGEOUS clothing. I had my first shift yesterday and this is what I wore. For my first day I didn't do too bad but I still have a lot to learn. I'm hoping things will get better for me there but I'm sure once I'm settled in I'll be fine.
The second change is, as you can see, my hair is obviously shorter! No I didn't cut it... I've actually been wearing clip-in extensions for a while. Whenever someone found out I wore extensions they were always so surprised and said that they couldn't even tell (which is good, that's the whole point!). But extensions need a lot of maintaining and it's a really big hassle to clip them in every day and that means I have to style my hair so that my extensions can blend in with/match my hair. Not to mention all the headaches I would get because it's constantly pulling on your hair. SO... I decided to just stop wearing them and embrace my naturally thin and short hair... But we'll see how long that lasts since I have a crazy obsession with long thick hair. I think I just need to figure out how to make my short hair look good and experiment with some hairstyles and hopefully I'll like my natural hair. What better way to start embracing my short hair then for my first shift at my new job!

Typical Vancouver weather has returned! It was a very gloomy day so I didn't really feel like dressing up too much. I kept it comfy and casual by wearing my shiny leggings with my mom's vintage turtleneck sweater and my Nike runners. I threw on this gorgeous coat so I can stay warm and protected from the rain, as well as this scarf and my beloved hat for extra warmth. I think Sundays are turning into 'Macaroons Sundays' for me as I went for Macaroons again! I went to West Vancouver again but this time it was at a cafe called 'Faubourg'. This place is AMAZING and very fancy. The macaroons are to die for and it really reminded me of my trips to Paris... Ahh I'm beyond nostalgic, someone take me back to Europe asap!
I spent all night editing my video so that I could get it up on my channel asap and here it is! I'm really excited about this one, I love all my outfits and my editing is getting better. I left all the links to everything I'm wearing in the info box incase you guys were wondering.
Obviously I couldn't wear most of these outfits now in the winter but I wanted to show you guys some variety with how you can wear a sweater. I really hope you guys enjoy the video and remember to like the video if you like it and make sure you subscribe!!

Since I finished writing most of my essay I decided to take a little break and I filmed a new YouTube video. Since I purchased a ton of sweaters in the past few months I wanted to show you guys how I style them. I didn't get the chance to film all of my sweaters but I'll make sure to show you guys the rest in future blog posts! Hopefully I'll have the video all finished and ready to upload sometime this weekend.
Anyways, Happy Valentines Day everyone I hope you are all spending it with loved ones and have a lovely weekend!
Sorry for the lack of posts in the last few days, I've been quite busy writing a 1600-1900 word essay that's due Monday! I always try to keep my Instagram updated so if you're not already following me make sure you do! @emilijabaranac
Tomorrow I think I might film a new YouTube video, but it depends on how much I get done with my essay. I am currently almost half way done so hopefully I'll get the majority done by tonight so then I can film tomorrow. If I do film it'll probably be up by this weekend or the beginning of next week, so stay tuned because it's going to be a good one!

Today I went to West Vancouver with my parents to this new cafe/bakery called CC Violin. They have such good macaroons and coffee and it's really cute inside. If you ever get the chance make sure you go check them out! Take a look at my Instagram account to see the photo I took of the Macaroons and my Mocha. I know I keep complaining about how cold it is but I can't help it... It's freezing! I've been living in my turtle neck sweaters lately because it's way too chilly to wear anything else. Apparently it's supposed to snow either tomorrow or Monday and I am crossing my fingers it doesn't snow tomorrow since I have to work late... I really don't want to get stuck downtown in the snow! Today it was pretty nice though, it's warmer when you're in the sun but not by much.
I know I'm constantly wearing my leather jacket, and those jeans... and my converse sneakers but those are my favorite pieces right now! They go with anything pretty much and add so much value to any look. Also I am in love with this sweater, it is so soft and comfortable and surprisingly pretty warm. This is probably one of my favorite looks Oh and as you guys can tell I got rid of those hideous roots and now my hair is back to the color I love, yay! Anywho, I'm gonna go warm up with some tea, have a good weekend everyone!
