When i look at these pics, i want to be back in the desert…like right now. It may have been a bit more chilly this past Christmas than normal, but in true SPS style, we would search out a sheltered nook to park ourselves for a couple of hours every day and just feel the sun’s warmth! It has been particularly grey at home as of late, and i literally find myself day dreaming of blue skies. Having been born and raised here just outside Vancouver, i should well be used to the wet. But oddly, it feels more difficult as time goes on. It’s almost a physical craving for brighter days and less gloomy skies! This is reading as a complaint so i’m aware i need to check myself! More grateful, less whiny..
In the meantime, thought i’d share one of my go-to outfits. In cooler temps, i’ll add one of my large blanket scarves to give an additional level of warmth. A sweater coat is a fabulous investment piece. It does indeed function as a jacket and you might find yourself grabbing it more often than not. I pair mine with everything from a silk blouse and jeans to a dress.
i have been admiring these iconic Aquazzura Christy lace up flats for months! Delicate yet still with some edge, i loved everything about them…except the price tag. Eeks! So i was doing some fist pumping when a fabulous Nordstrom shoe saleswoman gave me the wink and showed me these. At $88, i was almost doing cartwheels. And even more so when i tried them on and realized just how comfortable they are. Sold to the crazy haired girl with the huge grin!
So until warmer days arrive, you’ll find me keeping warm, more often than not in my cozy sweater coat xo Laurel
