A few quick and easy looks I've enjoyed wearing lately illustrate the pronounced move we're making from winter to spring around here. Early last week, I was trying to improve the winter's CostPerWear ratio on a few items before packing them away 'til next October. I love brown and black together, here in the chocolate tones of my Bompard v-neck and a black Aritzia pleated skirt all grounded by my Fluevog Truth Britney boots.
But leaves and blooms are unfurling at a furious pace here, and the thermometer is hitting the mid-teens when the sun comes out, so last week, I decided I wanted a more spring-forward look. And with tout le monde, combining marinière-style stripes with leopard flats, I thought I could give it a try, especially since I quite like leopard with red. And as if that weren't enough piling-up of the trends, I've added a favourite red Indian-print cotton scarf, bought in Paris about 8 years ago but still well loved.
These red J-Brand skinnies make it quite clear that running does NOT make one's legs smaller, but I'm going to flaunt them nevertheless. . . .
Once again, I'm joining the Visible Monday crowd. I highly recommend checking out how other bloggers are welcoming the Spring or seeing out the end of Winter.
