Defiant: styling a slipdress with a cropped sweater, army parka, and fleece-trimmed knee boots

I guess you could say I was giving “the finger” to our wintery weather situation in this bare-legged outfit, dear readers!!  ๐Ÿ˜

Although the snow was – once again! – falling rather enthusiastically, it actually wasn’t all that cold; so I felt surprisingly comfortable in my lace-hemmed slipdress and fleecy knee-high boots combo…especially since I’d also “layered up” with a woolly mohair sweater, military-inspired parka, and leather driving gloves!!

Not that there’s been much driving going on around here; I’ve actually had to take the bus to work this week (for the first time ever!) because road conditions are such a mess.  Ugh.  And things look like they’ll be getting even worse before they get better…so I’m glad I got my slipdress-wearing compulsion out of the way when I did!!

These boots, though??  I re-discovered them just before this latest snow-tastrophe (remember how I was complaining about my limited footwear options?) and now they’re pretty much my daily go-to!!  Prepare to see them again…just sayin’.

      Oh no!! So sorry to hear that, dearest Nancy…it feels like this winter is never going to end, doesn't it?? But Vancouver's latest snowfall is melting fast, and I hope the same thing happens for you; I think we're both MORE than ready for tulips and cherry blossoms!! XOXO

      Thank you, dearest Anett!! I really liked the way my chunky, block-heeled boots contrasted with the feminine feel of this lace-hemmed slipdress!! ๐Ÿ™‚
