Lucky stars: a grey plaid sweater coat with star-patterned skinny jeans and ankle boots

I’m going with fewer words and more photos for your viewing pleasure today, dear readers; because – after all! – variety is the spice of life!!  Honestly though??  It’s mostly because I’m in the middle of a potential health issue that has my anxiety level way up there in the red zone…and I’m finding it tough to concentrate on anything else.

All of you who’ve been with me since my dental issues, my broken foot, and my DVT will know that I do not deal well with challenges of the medical variety; let’s hope my new star-patterned skinny jeans are truly “lucky” and will work some wonders that’ll have me back to my normal self asap!!  Seriously though – even on the best of days, how could a wannabe rock chic like me possibly resist their spangled perfection??

And my grey plaid sweater coat is brand new, too; I snagged it last weekend at a garden shop (of all places!) when Robin and I were looking for a little springtime inspiration for our balcony flower boxes.  Vancouver’s weather is unfortunately still not friendly enough to do any planting yet…but today we actually managed to squeeze in an afternoon drive with the Solstice in convertible mode (check out my Instagram if you want proof)!!

By the time we took these photos, though, it was really windy and chilly again…we even had to hop into our car – with the top back up and the heater blasting! – several times to “defrost”.  Thank goodness our favourite Starbucks awaited with open arms!! 😋

    I love your coat. I have spent much of the winter looking for a gray plaid topper for spring. I found one for a good price, but first I had to buy a larger size than I needed to fit my boobs. I had to have it altered to fit everywhere else and that cost more than the coat! Now that I paid to alter it, spring weather stubbornly refuses to surface so I have never worn it. The only days that were warm enough to ditch the parka were days that were too warm for any coat at all. Only in April in the northeast can you experience four seasons in a day! I think I might like your coat better than mine, so I am in a case of double envy right now. Maybe I should look for some lucky star patterned jeans and hope they bring me some lucky weather.

    Hope you are well and whatever health issues you have clear up soon!
