Stormy: How to style a colour-blocked sweater and slouchy cargo pants

So – after living in fear of the three back-to-back storms (aka torrential rain and hurricane-force winds!) that were predicted for Vancouver over the past few days, I’d say we came through with flying colours!!

My biggest concern was losing WiFi – hey, this girl’s gotta get her blog posts out on schedule! – but we were lucky that our neighbourhood wasn’t affected by any of the power outages that always seem to go hand-in-hand with windstorms around here.

In fact, Robin and I took advantage of the average person’s instinct to stay home and “hunker down” by making the trip out to Vancouver’s massive new outlet mall for the second Saturday in a row!!  We figured it wouldn’t be quite the circus it was last weekend for the Grand Opening celebrations…and we were right; I’m not sure if it was the stormy weather or because the novelty had already worn off, but the crowds were considerably easier to wrangle!!  😉

And in case you’re wondering, dear readers??  Yes!!  I did manage to snag some great deals…three new pairs of shoes, to be exact!!  Of course they’ll all be making an appearance on the blog very soon; but in the meantime, I need to bribe my hubby into adding another shelf to my closet to store them!!  Any ideas?!

    Great outfit. Beautiful colours has the sweater. I also needed more space and am selling shoes that I don't wear anymore.

      Selling the things I no longer wear has crossed my mind as well, dearest Nancy…but I can't be bothered with all the hassle of packing stuff up and sending it off!! My local Salvation Army is always very happy to see me, though!! 😉
