Mix and match: sweatshirt with statement sleeves, black denim skirt, cut-out booties, and a cross-body bag

Oh boy - after almost three solid months of sunshine, I've forgotten how, um, unpleasant it is to shoot outfit photos in the rain!!

It certainly takes a bit more effort to smile when you're chilly and damp...but on the plus side, I finally had the opportunity to show off this cute new top that I found at Winners back when it was still way too warm to actually wear it!!

How perfect is a sweatshirt that also happens to have the sweetest statement sleeves??  I've wanted to add another not-too-sporty sweatsuit-inspired top to my collection for a while now; and when I saw those wrist-tied sleeves rendered in a contrasting pinstriped fabric - and in my fave black and white colour palette, no less! - it was a done deal.

Kinda cool to instantly cross two totally of-the-moment trends off my list with one fell swoop!!  Not that it's exactly curbed my recent spending spree all that much; I've got a whole lot of new pieces to show you in the coming weeks, dear readers...so be sure to stay tuned!!

  2. Believe it or not, dearest Nancy, I bought those shoes when I was recovering from a broken foot a few years ago...and even though I couldn't properly try them on at the time, they've remained one of my best footwear purchases ever!! 😁
