When the winter temperatures begin to mild here in Canada, I get super excited. By mild, I mean instead of -30*C, it jumps to between 0*C and -10*C – that’s shorts weather here… haha! We’ve actually been really lucky this season so far, as we haven’t had too many really cold days. One of the things I dislike the most is having to layer really heavy articles of clothing to keep warm. There’s an old Danish proverb that states, “There is no bad weather, only bad clothing.”… Well, I have to agree, but there’s only so much a girl can layer on while still looking fab!
Last night was one of those days where I just felt like dolling up and hitting the town. I was so grateful for the warmer temps – that means I could delve into my skirts! I tend to be a bit of a fashion chameleon – going from one end of the style spectrum to the other – and this outfit definitely brought out the “Rocker Girl” side of me. I grew up a country girl, but that doesn’t mean I’m exclusive to it. Play around with your style, ladies! There’s no rule book for this – and if by chance somewhere there is, throw it out the damn window. Have FUN with your fashion!
Pairing a simple black and white cropped top, with my high waisted button down skirt and my all time favourite leather jacket, brings out the rebel side of my personality. This skirt, by the way, I picked up at H&M on Clearance for SEVEN.DOLLARS. Yes, you read that right. Fashion doesn’t have to break the bank! My boots from Dune London are making a comeback … but honestly, you’ll see a lot more of them because they are probably THE most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn. Finishing off the look, I’ve included some of my favourite accessories in complementary colour schemes – Quattro G Perforated Crossbody Bag by GUESS and my beloved Jacqueline Gold-Tone watch by Fossil.
Most of my wardrobe is neutral. I love working with neutrals as it gives me more room to play around with textures and patterns. What are some of your favourites to work with?
