Feeling cool...

Wednesday, December 14, 2016

I am in for the rudest awakening ever!  I'm heading home to Chicago soon and after spending the last week in Vegas sans jacket, sans hat, and sans gloves, the 2 degree temperatures plus snowstorms in Chicago are probably going to hit me like a ton of bricks. 

... but enough about the weather.  

Today, we had parent/teacher conferences all day and while in my old school district, this was a call for business formal attire, I was happy to be able to roll in to school in this relaxed, but rather chic outfit.  Every time I wear these booties, I feel like I should be performing on a Disney Channel show (or "Fuller House," for that matter...).  Basically, I just felt cool in this relaxed work outfit.  

What do you think?  Do you have a certain garment or accessory that makes you feel super cool? 

What's sustainable about this outfit? 
: the necklace is handmade
: the earrings are handmade and fair trade
: the jeans are hand-me-downs

  1. I love this casual outfit dear. The vintage necklace looks so pretty and dainty.


  2. Simply Beautiful!


  3. Yeah, most certainly winter in Chicago is different from winter in Las Vegas, so bundle up. :) But also enjoy your time home!

    I love your question about our favorite items that make us feel cool -- my most favorite garments in my wardrobe are those made in Canada -- some of my sweaters, shirts, skirts, tops, dresses, they are well designed and I just love them. I love fashion by Canadian designers, and I buy Canadian clothes whenever I get the chance.

    Have a lovely weekend!
    Xoxo, Victoria
