Is anyone else as bemused as I am over the fact that February starts next week?! Not that I’m upset to see January go – together with November, it’s one of my least favourite months – but seriously…wasn’t it just Christmastime?!
I can remember back when I was a kid that it felt like there was an endless stretch of time between the first day of school in September and being off again for Christmas break. Now it seems as though we leapfrog from season to season with barely a moment to catch our breath. But I’m not going to protest too much until we hit May; that’s when I’d like things to slow. right. down. so that I can squeeze every last drop out of summer…the absolute best time of year!!
At least I don’t have to be all bundled up in a parka and snow boots like many of you probably need to be right now, dear readers. I’ve added quite a few coats to my collection in recent years; and while a few of them are definitely very warm, they were all chosen first and foremost for their style…not their practicality!! Still, I’ll opt to go without outerwear whenever possible; it always seems a bit of a shame to me to hide away the outfit fabulousness I’ve dreamed up in my climate-controlled condo just because the weather outside won’t play along!! 😁
So imagine how lucky I felt today, at the tail end of January, that I only barely needed a jacket for our afternoon out, and – even better! – because I managed to get away with wearing a dress sans tights!! My black and leopard-patterned Phillip Lim moto is a pretty special piece…but without some cooperation from the great outdoors, you’d never have seen the cute little sleeves of this sheer shirred t-shirt I layered over my striped sweater dress. All I can do now is keep my fingers crossed that the month of February treats me just as well!!
