Favourite Things

Blazer? Vintage, gift from Jessie Skirt? Joe Fresh Boots? Winners Shirt? F21
Collar? From a friend's grandmother Purse? Thrifted


If I were Oprah and this was a Favourite Things episode, I would gift everyone with a red blazer. Because it wasn't until Jessie sent this blazer to me, that I realized that a red blazer had been what was missing in my closet all this time. They just work with so many outfits and are just so freaking cheery! 

And while we're on the topic, let's indulge and discuss what other items would make my Favourite Things list.

-Frank's Hot Sauce because I do, indeed, put that sh*t on everything.
-Bath and Body Works candles in 'Winter' because guests won't notice dirty dishes stacked like a perilous Jenga tower when your house smells so wintery delicious. 
-President's Choice Spicy Black Bean soup with pickles and cheddar cheese. Don't hate until you try it. 
-My $6.50 knock off Crocs that I wear around the house. I used to be ashamed but now I embrace them. Literally. I hug my faux Crocs.
-Diet Coke because it's Diet Coke. 
-My Felco pruning shears because they are my landscaping best friends.
-Bacon because that is the only thing I can use to convince my little brother to eat my cooking. Which is unfair because I am actually turning out to be a decent cook... 

Yup, that would be my list. A little random but I feel like it's a fair representation of what things I value in my life. Oprah gave out cars but I would hand out red blazers, bacon, hot sauce and candles... I obviously put more thought into this than she ever did.

Agreed! A red blazer is a MUST for any gal's closet! You've styled yours very well! I styled mine on the blog once w/ a fur collar as well -- so chic, isn't it?

Blazers, bacon, hot sauce and candles? We seem to have similar values.

That red blazer with the fur is amazing. Jessie has great taste, and so do you. I need to find friends that give me coats like that.

Franks! My coworkers used to make fun of me because I'd pull the gigantic, costco-sized bottle out of my purse and put it on everything. Have you tried it on popcorn? YUM.

Tanya said...

Here's to faux crocs! The best slippers ever.

I love your fur :)

You're such a trip! But I'm gonna have to try that soup. Surprisingly I was sitting here thinking, "hmm, that sounds interesting."

I won't judge you.

Well geez, now I'll be wondering what kind of pickles to put on the soup. Great post. I've been on the lookout for a red blazer since I gave away my cashmere one. Foolish, I know, but it really was too big. Beyond boyfriend too big. {Sigh}
