Winded: oversized light-wash denim jacket, tunic sweater, leather leggings, and square-toed booties

Another weekend “gone with the wind”, dear readers…and I mean that both literally and figuratively!!

The weather in Vancouver was so blustery again on Saturday and Sunday; it’s really a challenge to enjoy the sunshine – or a photo op, for that matter! – when gusting winds insist on blowing away any semblance of the warmth we usually expect at this time of year.  Where the bleep is spring, for bleep’s sake?!  Even the magnolias and cherry trees don’t appear to be flowering with their usual enthusiasm; we’re into the second week of April now, and I can’t help but feel like we’re at least a month behind when it comes to blossom season.

And on the figurative end of things??  Well – I imagine we are all familiar with the phrase “time flies when you’re having fun”!!  Those two days off every week never fail to pass by in the blink of an eye, do they??  And then – snap! – here we are once again…right back to Monday.

I’ll be honest though – for me, it’s not just weekends that whiz by so quickly.  Ever since I started blogging, I’ve found myself marking time with “photo days” and “prep days” and “posting days”…and I move through the weeks faster than I ever could have thought possible.  While I’m currently complaining that it doesn’t feel much like spring yet, I know it won’t be long before I’ll be wishing I could stop turning over the pages of my old-school paper calendar.  ‘Cause when summer finally arrives??  I’ll want nothing more than for time to slow waaay down!!

For now I’m still working a cozy wool tunic sweater and vegan leather leggings look…with my oversized light-wash denim jacket (did you see the cropped version I recently debuted?) layered on top for a seasonal vibe and some extra protection from that infernal wind.  And you didn’t honestly think I’d be waiting too long before wearing my new brown booties again, did you?! 😁

    I’ve just spent the weekend in Seattle, where it was similarly blustery without much sun! In fact some me nice rain (says the desert dweller!) But we bundled up and had a great time. The cherries are mostly down me blooming and magnolias were peaking. So gorgeous! Heading back home to Arizona where it will be so hot already is a little sad. But work calls….

    Great outfit. I’ve already pulled out some of my own clothing to see how I could spin it my way. Thanks!

    Ha ha. I tried writing this comment quickly before boarding the plane home. I see many embarrassing typos. It should read:

The cherries are mostly done blooming (but still there were some to see) and the magnolias are peaking. So gorgeous! Heading back home to Arizona where it will be so hot already is a little sad. But work calls….

    I also cannot forget to say that this outfit is another great remix of newer and older pieces!

    I feel ya! I am still climbing out of winter. A few hardy flowers are poking up their heads, but the trees refuse to bud and my parka still stays in coat rotation. Things are supposed to improve this weekend, but I am not too optimistic things will stay nice. I have been disappointed by blips of good weather too many times. Just when I think I can put my winter clothes away for the season, I need a sweater and a coat again.

    Hi Monika, ditto weather in UK, but with rain ☔ and cold wind. Blossom reluctant to show on my neighbours magnolia tree. Still wearing cosy fleece tops with everything, not very flattering but keeps you warm. You always look stylish, really enjoy receiving your blog’s and getting great idea’s. Love your hair colour 😎
