Even though there’s still snow to be seen in these pics, the truly frigid temperatures Vancouver was dealing with a week ago had mellowed just enough today for me to brave wearing a skirt…albeit a warm and woolly maxi skirt!!
It probably wouldn’t be a stretch to call me the “queen of jeans”; but as I’ve said before – every once in a while I do feel the need to switch it up a little, since even my most favourite pieces would get stale if I wore them all the time. So no denim today; instead, I layered my olive wool-blend tunic sweater over that full-length skirt, added a leather-look moto vest for another element of coziness and textural interest…and topped everything off with even more wool in the form of a felted military-style cap.
And I would have been perfectly fine – bare legs and all! – if all we had on our agenda was an afternoon at Chapters; but I neglected to consider that we’d be stopping for a photo-op on a rather breezy hillside beforehand. Actually, that’s not entirely true – getting new outfit pictures is never very far from my mind. It’s just that on some days I’m a bit more willing to tough out twenty minutes of literal “chill time” to get them done!!
So yes – this afternoon I felt daring enough to step out of my comfort (aka “I-need-to-be-warm”) zone and challenge the elements a little. Maybe it’s because we’ve finally left February in the dust…and that means spring is officially a mere three weeks away!! Robin and I know we have a way to go yet, but we already can’t stop talking about another season spent cruising around town in our convertible Solstice. Woohoo!!
Now it’s your turn, dear readers!! With winter (hopefully) in that proverbial rearview mirror, what are you dreaming about and looking forward to as the weather starts warming up?? I hope you’ll take a moment to share!!
