You know those items we have in our wardrobe that we wear over and over, mixing and matching with other things, and make you feel good when you're wearing them? This outfit includes some of mine. The skirt was thrifted and is an excellent basic piece that has made it worth more than the $6 I paid for it.
You may remember the candy coloured Doc Marten brogues I purchased last year - they are my all time favourite feel-good shoes. Today I wore them with my Pippi Longstocking leggings, another item that brightens my day, and always inspires a comment or two from my colleagues.
My new favourite is this Perry Ellis America jacket, purchased from the Factory Girl Vintage booth at the Gadsden's Toronto Vintage Clothing Show on Sunday. It was very reasonable priced, and I couldn't resist the retina-burning colour and 80's shape.
Another thing I liked about the jacket was the fabric - it's made from a velvety-soft quilted cotton/poly blend and given that the temperature is still only a few degrees above zero, I appreciated the extra cozy factor.
We have had two, sunny, Spring-like days in a row, and I was swooning from the unexpected brightness. I don't want to seem too presumptuous, but could the Winter From Hell actually be over?
