I mean, for real: you have seen these pieces so many times. Don’t hate me for subjecting you to them one more time. I do love this sweatshirt so, so much (in case that wasn’t amply clear). I normally wouldn’t wear a sweatshirt to work, but it was Be Seen In Jeans week (aka casual everyday) so I figured I could pull it off on this occasion.
I bought this bracelet yeeeears ago (to wit, 2004) on a stopover in London. The pound was as strong against the Canadian dollar as it is … well, always … so it cost me a pretty penny (even though it was just costume jewelry from a high street store) but I just had to have it – even on my then-student budget – because I loved it so. I still think it’s pretty special, and I’m glad I remembered it and dug it out for this occasion. It goes so well with these other old, favourite things.
Every year, my office does a Be Seen in Jeans Week in honour of Canadian Finals Rodeo. Basically, this means we can wear jeans every day for a week. Rather that take the literal road, I decided to have a little fun. Hence, my denim-jacket-goes-to-the-office look. I’ve been waiting for a chance to wear this outfit ever since I put it together for my “one piece, three ways” series this summer. I think it was worth the wait?
My love for this thrifted forest green MaxMara skirt is still going strong, and I love how it looks paired with a lumberjack-y top half. Or should that be cowboy-esque? Ahem. Here’s another million pictures to prove how deep my love is. (Do you have the Bee Gees stuck in your head? Good! Me too, and I’d hate to be alone.)
Hard to believe it’s November – this weather is positively balmy. Well, for Edmonton in November, anyway. Took advantage of the opportunity to wear one of my summer dresses. Nothing earth-shattering happening here, but I always love a black, red, blue combo.
These thrifted Canadienne boots are great – and insulated! and waterproof! – but they are a somewhat odd height, since they hit me about mid-calf. Initially, that gave me pause, and I almost didn’t buy them, but I figured they were worth a risk for all of $20. They’re in mint condition so even if the style is a bit out there, they’re a good pair to have on hand come, ahem, winter.
