This outfit was an outfit which you walk out of the door and just don’t know what to think of it. I wasn’t sure about the stripes and faux fur mixing and the burgundy skirt mixed with the navy stripes. Thankfully for this blog, this outfit was photographed and it gave me much more confidence in how the whole outfit looks. Sometimes it’s nice to break out of your comfort barrier because that’s when you find what you truly like and dislike.
As much as I love colour I still gravitate to black. It is quite hard to talk myself out of buying pieces that are black because the general idea is that it is classic and easy to wear/pair. Outfit planning like this one happens all the time. I throw things on and all of a sudden I look in the mirror and I am in head to toe black but since Vancouver is still a rainy mess, it feels almost appropriate to be head to toe in all black.
Unlike the other Winters I’ve been through, this has been my first winter which I’ve been gravitating towards pants. I’m usually a skirt and tight gal but it seems the change was necessary with so many different pant options on the market currently. The J. Crew minnie has been one of my favourite items to enter my closet. The pant has a bit of stretch for comfort but looks like a full structured pant. I can be in it all day and it doesn’t seem to lose it’s shape. That’s a plus one for a girl working in the office!
