The Perfect Space

The Perfect Space- The Avett Brothers
My hunt is finally over! Ever since August I've been lusting after the perfect pair of high waisted khakis that have a "carrot" top for two reasons 1) because c'mon, any pair of pants that you can relate to a vegetable is pretty awesome (!) and 2) when I was in Bordeaux in Nov all the most stylish french girls were wearing them and it just seemed so... effortlessly chic. But every pair I tried on (in excess of 25!) looked horrible! Too tight at the calves, M.C. Hammer-ish, way too baggy in all the wrong places. This girl was just about to wave her white flag and give up, figuring that I just wasn't made for them. But then I stumbled on these beauties and figured I might as well just try on one more pair. Then it was over for me. The search had ended! 
Black Peacoat- Le Chateau, Black Sheer Shirt- Costa Blanca, Khaki Carrot Pants- Wilfred via Aritzia, Gold Bead Necklace- Target, Brown Belt- Vintage, Wrap Bracelets- Club Monaco and H&M, Nude Flats- Joe Fresh
And now I have a cozy Sunday night ahead of me, with some yummy food from the farmer's market, a good book and hopefully a bit of painting (...possibly an Okanagan Apple Cider too!) 
Has anyone got a book to recommend? I'm almost done my current one (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer) and am always looking for hidden gems.


  1. How cutie is your fishtail braid?! Love it! And hoorah for finding your dream pants, it's always so exciting when you finally find the perfect fit! Hope you had a lovely weekend, m'dear! xo.

  2. I'm loving your braid too- so cute! I'm also a huge fan of high waisted pants- they have this chic appeal but are also incredibly comfortable! I'm also loving this backdrop for your photos- gorgeous.

  3. Gahhh, I love your fishtail braid! It looks so stinkin' adorable on you... My hair is not quite long enough to get a satisfacotry enough braid over my shoulder, but hopefully by summer time I'll be able to!

    You look fantastic in these high waist khakis, it looks like all your hard searching(25 pairs?!) paid off!

  4. adorable outfit, love the fishtail braid, i wish i could do it in my hair but it's too thick and layered!

  5. I <3 these pants! A good pair of pants is so difficult to find, especially a nice pair of high waisted ones that fit well - I've been looking for a pair forever. I really love the accessories with this outfit; the turquoise is gorgeous.

  6. They look fantastic on you! Hooray! Have you read the Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao? That's a good one!

  7. so cute and beautiful outfit! love everything about it !! :)

  8. those pants look so good on you! it's always great when you find something you've been on the hunt for :)

  9. I love those pants! I am still debating whether or not I can pull them off but you have inspired me to give them a try!!
    Following you now!
