Texturize me

If you’ve read my “about me” page, then you know that I started this blog as a kind of personal style diary…a way for me to record all the outfits I so love to put together for those days when I’m not wearing my workday uniform.

And it’s been quite interesting what I’ve learned about my style preferences since I started this visual journey just a little over a year ago…that expression “a picture is worth a thousand words” is very true!!

One thing that’s really become apparent to me is that even though I may not do a lot of colour on a regular basis, I am – without a doubt – a HUGE fan of textures!!  Take this new bag that I brought home from Vancouver’s Circle Craft Christmas Market this year…couldn’t you just die over all that scrumptious furriness?!

Add to that my woolly, fringy, Free People sweater-coat and a tasselled lariat necklace…and I’m totally in tactile heaven over here!!  (Can you tell?!)

      My new "sherpa" bag actually came with a couple of interchangeable straps, dear Kelsey and Kenecha…so I have all kinds of options for wearing it!! And I really believe that personal style should never be a static thing…sure, it's great to have a go-to look or two, but the best part about fashion is the experimentation, don't you agree?!

      Thank you so much, dearest Zoe!! This wool cardigan IS pretty toasty for a day that isn't terribly cold…but today we actually have some snow on the ground, so I'll have to upgrade my outerwear options for the foreseeable future!!

      Depends on your definition of "winter," dear Charlotte…Vancouver has the mildest climate of all of Canada – so this type of ensemble is often very doable – but we do get the occasional day(s) with much colder temperatures, too!! πŸ˜‰ Thank you so much for visiting…it's really lovely to meet you!!

      The bag was a bit of an – ahem! – investment, dearest Dawn…but I would have regretted not bringing it home with me!! What can I say, some pieces are simply worth the money, am I right?! πŸ˜‰

      Texture is the perfect option for someone – like me! – who tends to be just a little "colour shy," dearest Debbie!! I'm working on my colour challenges..but in the meantime, fringes and furriness are definitely where it's at!! XOXO

      I love a good pair of cat-eye sunglasses, dear Euge…they add a bit of "sass" to every look, don't you think?! πŸ˜‰
