Ever since we found out our dog was a fat-fat, Roger and I have been taking him for long walks once a day (twice a day if it so happens to be his birthday or if Roger needs to stretch his legs.) Now that the snow has melted, it's pretty easy to lace up our running shoes, throw a harness around Tunders, and hit the road. What has taken me by surprise the past couple days is that I still reach for my wool mittens. Mittens? In May?? Usually I wear them religiously between October and April, but I still find it very chilly this month, especially in the evenings. I can't complain too much about having to wear mittens almost all year round; my nana knits them for me and they are wonderful.
Choosing attire for this late winter-early spring transition weather can be tricky. Layering my clothing provides a happy medium for me; I dress myself for an Arctic expedition in the morning and I'm prepped for a Caribbean cruise by the afternoon. After a long winter of pants, tights, jeans, and jeggings, nothing is stopping me from embracing acceptable dress and skirt season. Today is no exception.
I wanted to wear a skirt so badly that I paired it with the biggest, warmest, waffliest sweater I could find. Very Canadian of me, I must say. I'm going to wear a black peacoat overtop and hope for a few extra degrees.
This ensemble is one of my favourites yet. Favourite sweater. Favourite shoes. Favourite skirt. All new purchases as of this year. I'm also wearing the pink leather-banded watch Roger bought for me not last Christmas, but the Christmas before.
Floral skirts make me happy. They are fun, flirty, straight outta the 90s--I love them. I would wear mismatched floral on floral everyday if I could. One day when I'm 90 I'm going to sew myself an elaborate quilt out of all the floral clothing I've owned throughout the years. Hold me to it please--pointing at you, Lindsay Morgan.
