Danger Zone: maroon sweater, floral trousers, ivory booties, and a flat top fedora

So I’m not saying you need to colour match your outfit to your hair to create a fabulous look, dear readers…but it’s kinda magic when it ends up that way!!

Robin picked out this maroon sweater for me during one of our weekend shopping jaunts because he really liked the lace-up detail on the sleeves…and the fact that it “goes with” my fuchsia ‘do.  Then, on the way to the change room, I spotted these striking floral trousers and figured I’d give them a try as well.

Since I’m wearing both pieces today, I guess it’s no great leap to conclude that I fell in love not only with how well they each work with my hair, but also with how well they work together as an instant ensemble!!  Just add ivory booties and a cool fedora, and ta-da!!  😁

Port Mann Bridge, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

And this spot under the massive new Port Mann Bridge – it’s ten lanes wide! – could be the coolest location we’ve ever found for a photo op!!  We might have had to climb around a couple of safety barriers to get to the “perfect” view…but you won’t tell on us, will you?!

    Love love love this whole outfit. Sweater is a great color and I love the sleeve details. Pants are gorgeous and fun. I love it when stuff comes together like this. I will have something sitting in my closet and I'll buy something else like shoes or a sweater without thinking about what it goes with and then I discover I have a perfectly matched outfit.

      And it just goes to show you that even the "simplest" outfit can have impact when you pay attention to the finishing touches – interesting embellishments, cool accessories, and maybe even some colour every once in a while!! 👍

    Gorgeous! I am loving this trend of dark florals for fall. I am very tempted to treat myself to something along these lines. Thanks for the inspiration!
