Segue: vegan leather vest and leggings, wedge booties, and long cardigan

Well, there’s another weekend come and gone!!  Somehow, Saturday and Sunday are by far the “shortest” days of every week…aren’t they, dear readers?!

Besides catching up on some sleep (a weekend non-negotiable, in my opinion!) Robin and I managed to squeeze in a ferret playdate with friends-slash-fellow-pet-parents, a movie date (we saw “The Girl on the Train”) and some extra FaceTime with my parents in Toronto…since my sister was visiting them from New Brunswick, it was like a two-for-one!!

We even managed to get out and enjoy a little bit of unexpected sunshine!!  Aside from the “storm-that-really-wasn’t” that had been in the forecast for Vancouver last weekend, I have to say our transition into autumn has been rather pleasant so far; fingers crossed that the Farmer’s Almanac got it right and we really do end up being Canada’s hotspot this winter!!

As for the movie??  I don’t know how the screenplay compares to the actual book – since I haven’t read it! – but I’m giving the cinematic version two thumbs up!!  And I know Robin does, too; he made it through the late show without falling asleep…which is his highest compliment!!  ðŸ˜‰

    I really like these layers. Do you still love wearing those leggings? They look terrific and when I see them on you, I am tempted to get some myself.

      Can you believe that Christmas is only eight short weeks away, dearest Nancy?? Where the heck did the year go?! And yes…these leather-look leggings could (almost!) make me give up my denim skinnies!!

      I still have to push myself when it comes to colour, dear Laura – Queen of Neutrals here! – but playing with texture has long had my heart!! You can't tell from these photos, but that vest actually has a faux-sherpa lining…how cool (um, warm?) is that?! 😉
