I’m not sure how it happened, but somehow mustard yellow became a staple of my wardrobe. I know I’m not the only blogger who has a weakness for it, so I get zero points for uniqueness, and I’m not sure if my complexion is as fond of it as I am but there it is: the heart wants what it wants. (Semi-related aside: has anyone had their seasonal colour analysis done? Recommend it or nah?) This sunny hue just makes me so happy. And when it snows — yes, SNOWS — in early October, I need all the happy I can get. All the pumpkin spice lattes in the world can’t fix those blues.

yup, snow
yup, snow
The cropped length of this jacket is a bit awkward on me (I have a long torso), so I decided to play with proportions but adding my long-ish Joe Fresh sleeveless sweater to balance it out. No joke, this sweater is one of my all-time favourite pieces — I really wish I’d known it would become so beloved at the time I bought it, because I definitely would have bought a back-up. It will probably fall apart long before I’m ready to part with it. It goes with everything and it’s the perfect layering piece no matter the season. Basically, it s unicorn in sweater form.

Moving on, the one nice thing about winter is the opportunity to bring out my fave moto boots — these Frye lookalikes which are (a) badass, and (b) basically indestructible (and warm). It almost makes up for the snow. Almost. Bah, who am I kidding? It doesn’t, not even close.

oh, Edmonton fall
oh, Edmonton fall
happy yellow
happy yellow

  1. So cute! You might think I’m crazy but I would happily trade you some snow for our 95 degrees Fahrenheit October days! Fall? What is that??

  2. You totally don’t look like you have a long torso, what are your style ‘tricks’ to disguise that? Asking as someone who ‘also’ has a long torso to legs ratio!

  3. I still can’t believe you got snow last week (week before?), boggles the mind as I “caught” the sun last week (not sunburnt you understand, just caught it, lol) on a sunny warm 15 degree day!

    I have some mustard items (as you know, twins! ha ha!) but I’m not sure if pre-blogging and blog reading, so say, 8 years ago, I’d have been brave enough to wear it. Now I don’t care and I wear what I like.
