What I’ve been wearing lately: an outfit round-up

 

This week’s post is one I’ve never done before – an outfit round-up! Here’s every outfit I wore to work last week!

Outfit Round-up: Monday

Outfit Round-up: Monday Camel blazer and Aritzia dress and Sam Edelman boots; What are the best fall outfits

I am not a Monday person. I do not greet the start of the work week with energy, goals, and peppiness. On Mondays my outfits tend to go one of two ways:

  1. Comfortable because the exhaustion is real;

  2. Power outfit to motivate me to kick this week’s a$$.

Everlane Review: a review of the pieces I’ve purchased myself

Everlane Review: Everlane How to Wear; Everlane What to Buy; What is Everlane known for?

I’ve written a couple Everlane reviews before but I was sent the pieces for those posts. Today I want to talk you through the Everlane pieces I’ve purchased with my own money. All four of the pieces I’m going to talk about today I purchased second hand and two are no longer available on the Everlane website. I think the review has merit in spite of that because it speaks to the quality of Everlane garments in general. So, that said, let’s get into my third Everlane review!

Their aim was to get 10,000 participants. Currently there are 14,487 people taking part. The point of the challenge is to draw attention to the wasteful nature of fast fashion, one of the world’s biggest polluters.

Nicheless: Blogger Struggles

Blogger struggles: Whitehorse blogger Poutine and Prada with her cat.

Poutine and Prada though the years

When I first started posting regularly on Poutine and Prada I talked about beauty products almost exclusively. It was where I was at at the time. I still love talking make-up and skincare but I’m nearly ten years older than I was when I started this blog. My interests have changed and so have the topics I’m interested in talking about here. With these changes come some blogger struggles. I’m having a hard time with this because my blog doesn’t fit neatly into any one category any more. I feel like Poutine and Prada is disorganized and I’ve fallen into the trap of comparing my work with that of the bloggers I admire. My photos never look as good as theirs and my content never seems to read as smoothly.
