I couldn't wait for non-snow weather to wear this new skirt I bought either:
"riding" jacket and my leather vest. I added a belt over top of it to ground it, if that makes any sense (or maybe I just wanted to be all matchy with my boots, hee hee).
A shot of the way the jacket goes at the back:
Ah, the skirt. I spotted this at the downtown Club Monaco in the after-Christmas sale, but it was $99.00 on sale. Yikes! That's why I thrift most of my Club Monaco clothing! However, when L suggested we go to another mall to buy him some work clothes last weekend, I remembered that I still had the gift card from Mom that I got for my birthday - and that mall also has a Club Monaco! Yay!
Although the skirt was still $99.00 on sale (regular price $149.00 - gulp), it was an extra 30% off on top of that...and I like spending birthday money on stuff I wouldn't normally buy for myself. The skirt is called the "Ella" skirt and the colour is "mushroom." (I love mushrooms). It's going to get a lot of wear in the warmer months, but it was nice to be able to wear it during a snowy day. It's even polyester, so I'll be able to wash it (a good thing with that light colour!).
As there was still lots of snow on the ground this morning, and it was rather chilly out, I really layered up:

The skirt is floor length on me, even with the 2" heel on the cowboy boots, so I had to take drastic measures:
I twisted and rolled up the skirt into a ball to shove in my bag with the boots:
I went with pseudo-vintage with this necklace:
I had enough money left on my Club Monaco gift card to get this embossed leather belt as well:
Jacket (Armor Jeans, thrifted), vest (Cabi, thrifted), cami (Reitman's, consignment), skirt (Club Monaco), boots (Two Roads, consignment), belt (Club Monaco), necklace (Plum), earrings (vintage).
For those of you wondering about the kitties, here they are!
More snow is supposed to come tonight - the sky has that orange-y cast to it that makes me think it might happen...
