So the calendar says spring. The thermometer says otherwise. Until the two reach an agreement I’m sticking with my boots and sweaters. I’m one of the few people who actually doesn’t look forward to spring and warm weather. Boots, sweaters, faux fur coats, scarves, layers — these are a few of my favourite things. Sorry everyone but I’m holding out as long as I can. I added the smallest touch of the new season with this amazing flower necklace my mum and dad brought back from France. Otherwise, in true Northeast spirit I’m in all black. All black doesn’t have to be boring if you mix up textures and prints as I did here with knits, lace and leather. The slightly edgier over-the-knee boots with my otherwise boho outfit added a little twist. Enjoy!
Yup. Purple velvet. It’s so soft! We all know that I’m the queen of the sale. When I saw the blazer and the boots both reduced with an extra 40% off they simply had to become mine. No questions. I had been coveting these on the Free People site since the beginning of the season and I waited and waited until I got such an amazing deal I couldn’t possibly pass it up. Embracing the velvet trend and the fringe trend and the over-the-knee boot trend in one outfit? Decadent!

Literally and figuratively. Ha. Anyhow… let’s just say I was skeptical of pulling off this trendy flare thing. First of all, I’m short. Second of all, just not sure. Flares are typically made for people who must be 7 feet 2 inches tall because most of the ones I’ve tried on are just ridiculously long. My favourite sales person at Free People assured me that I could pull it off and that she had a pair that would work. These are made with a raw hem so that you can cut them to any length. I tried them on with the highest heel I figured I would ever wear with them and cut them to fit those. Past that, let ‘em drag on the ground and fray a little more. What do you think? Did I pull it off?

OK. This is getting ridiculous. I sound like a broken record. Today’s #OOTD is from none other than… Free People! Sorry. I really have to stop. Their clothes are just so cool, and comfy, and well made. Can’t help it! I am the queen of the “flowy” top and they make so many awesome ones, not to mention their perfect distressed denim. White jeans in the summer just give such a fresh look to an outfit but the distressing on these makes them more fun and not so buttoned up or nurse like. Confession — I have them in three colours.
