Who knew that February blues are a true phenomenon? I've been absent from the blogosphere for a minute, due to the wishy-washy weather, which doesn't allow for photo opportunities outdoors. On top of that, I've been dressing so blandly this month, subconsciously reflecting the ickiness outside. So, I finally decided to get my schnapps together and showcase my late winter / early spring inspiration.
When you can't and don't want to dress up, always opt to switch to the grandpa / grandma fashion mode. Senior citizens do it better, so you might as well take an aged leaf out of their book, when you're lost for style. Here, I've combined the essentials - wool, knits, big buttons, corduroy and suede - to create a casual, effortless ensemble. The bright burnt orange-tan colour of the traditional, printed, oversized scarf counterpoises the neutral palette of brown, beige and black. Both, the scarf and the cardigan are guaranteed to preserve warmth, which is of utmost importance for a practical dresser, dressing for the moody Toronto weather.
Hope you enjoyed and are inspired to put together outfits that consist of items borrowed from your grandparents' closets. Just be sure to return them afterwards! :)
