Winter Wonderland

In today's winter outfit, I paired this super warm and well-tailored peacoat that I picked up from J.Crew last year during their Boxing Day Sale with a Joe Fresh plaid shirt and a polka dots rain boots from RainDropsTO, to create a playful school-girl look. 


Due to the ice storm in Toronto, around half a million residents have no power at home. This so called "the nightmare before Christmas" has really hit the city hard. Unfortunately, we are one of the Torontonians who are experiencing this. It is frustrating but also fascinating to see how much we rely on electricity in everyday life. This is something that we take for granted in daily life and don't realize how important it is until a black-out comes along. We can't see, can't cook, can't watch a movie, can't even charge our phones... Mr.S and I were sitting on the couch in our pitch black living room looking at each other(at least we think we were making eye contact LOL), and wondering "what can we do now?" However, we are lucky enough to have family nearby to spend the night with. 
        Hope everyone will have a warm and safe Christmas!

由于严重雨冻结冰,多伦多整个城市感觉像瘫痪了一样。成千上万的住户经历家中停电的情况。这所谓的“圣诞之前的噩梦”导致许多住户都要在漆黑中度过。不幸的是,我们也没有逃过一劫。不过,虽然停电使得人很焦虑不安,但是往好处想,也确实让我们更加珍惜生活的琐碎小事。本来是件容易被忽视的事情,现在却对我们的生活碍手碍脚,不能看电影,看书,煮饭,甚至手机没电了也没法充。。我和S先生就坐在漆黑的客厅沙发上对看,然后琢磨着能做些什么来打发时间。幸运的是,我们有亲人在附近可以让我们暂时过渡一下。
希望大家过一个温暖又平安的圣诞节!
