White elephant: styling an oversized sweater with a belted furry vest and skinny jeans

So let’s get the “elephant” out of the way right off the bat, shall we??  Yes – we’ve had yet another snowfall in Vancouver!!

Multiple snowfalls, actually…with a couple of hailstorms thrown in for good measure!!  This particular afternoon we sat parked at the side of the road while sleet iced up our windshield, praying to the weather gods to please give us just ten minutes without precipitation so we could get these outfit photos in the can.  Apparently someone listened…because – hallelujah! – my hair didn’t even get wet!!

According to the calendar, the first day of spring is a mere two weeks away…but it certainly doesn’t feel like it this year.  The cherry blossoms and forsythia that we’ve so often enjoyed in March??  Nothing more than a promise for now.

In fact, I think the only way I’m going to get any kind of seasonal vibe going for the foreseeable future is by treating myself to a bouquet (or three!) of tulips!!  And as far as my outfits go, it’ll obviously be a while yet before I can swap out my cozy turtlenecks and faux-fur for sundresses and sandals!! 😉

    Well you make snow look so incredibly glam that I'm almost jealous! Almost! ;P. You're looking extra fabulous, Monika. Love the vest and the bag and you're fun hair color! I really can't believe it's no snowy there still. Girlfriend, come to Cali for a vacay and some girl time and shopping! 😀

    OXOX
