Believe it or not, this particular look was not planned specifically for this particular location!!

My little railroad-striped skirt is actually one of those quintessential warm weather pieces I decided to mix in with some stuff that is rather more “seasonal”… like my extra-cozy fleece-trimmed boots from Steve Madden; and my prized Diesel car coat!! (The coat is actually a boy’s style, but I simply could not resist its awesomeness when I found it last year at – you guessed it! – Winners!!)

I was actually going to add some patterned tights to finish things off; but when my husband told me the day was feeling quite mild temperature-wise, I thought “what the heck!” and went without…between the boots and the coat, I was definitely in no danger of getting chilled today!!

    Like it very much, dear Monika. Especially the jacket and who cares if it is actually made for a man. Now it belongs to a woman πŸ™‚ And it harmonizes awesome to the boots. I'm happy for you that it still has such mild temperatures in Canada that you can without tights out of the house. In Germany that is currently unthinkable. Tomorrow it supposed to snow – I hope not πŸ™‚
    And I'm happy because I was able to see your really cool rock. I wish a wonderful weekend, Conny

    I'm also not a fan of the snow, Conny…so I will keep my fingers crossed that your weather forecast is wrong!! And my coat definitely belongs to ME; it's too small for my husband, so I don't have to worry that he might steal it!! πŸ˜‰ I hope you have a lovely weekend, too!!

    You're looking great and I love how you "winterized" your denim skirt. Well, technically it's not winter yet, but man, it's been cold the last two days. I hardly want to go outside. Eeep! Enjoy your weekend, love! We're already on our second glass of wine over here. Haha! πŸ˜‰

      And I'm on my THIRD cup of tea!! Yep…it's definitely been just a bit chillier lately, hasn't it?! Oh well, we can't have it all; and the sunshine sure makes up for a lot!! Just gonna have to "up the ante" style-wise when it comes to creative layering!! πŸ™‚
