Weeks 47-48 Challenge

11 Mar

Alright, after a long pause it’s about time that I give myself a new challenge!

The days are getting longer and the weather is getting warmer (it was 15 C and beautiful today in Toronto!) so it’s time to start thinking about switching from my Winter jacket to a Spring jacket. As I’ve mentioned before I’ve had the same beige trench for years:



And even though I bought a black trench for the Weeks 25-26 Challenge I want something that’s more Spring-esque:

What can I say, I have a thing for jackets…

I’m in the mood for either something in red or a bright colour:

Burberry Prorsum Scuba Trench Coat

Moncler, $1120

Or something with a funky pattern:

Burberry Striped Jacquard Slim Trench, $2695


Etro Paisley-Print Degradé Taffeta Trench, $1480


Pucci Cotton Print, $1350


In particular I’m loving the Pucci one but the odds of finding something similar to that for $40 or under is pretty slim!

Nevertheless I’m going to try something fun! I’m hoping that being in Toronto for the next week will give me many more shopping options and that I can find something before I go back home next weekend.

We’ll see what I find. Wish me luck!

Alright, you may have noticed that I haven’t posted anything in quite some time. My apologies, my schedule has been insane, I’ve been ridiculously stressed out and I just needed to take a breather for a bit. I want to assure you though that with only three official challenges to go I’m not stopping this experiment!

Hermes Orion suitcase, I can assure you that my suitcase looks nothing like this...unfortunately!


At the moment I’m in Toronto on a two-week stint for work (crazy schedule right?) so I’m going to issue my next challenge this Sunday. That gives me one week in TO to try to find something and one week back at home in case I get so lost driving around here that I can’t find any stores!

So stay tuned, there’s a new challenge to come!
