It’s mid-May and the temperatures in Cleveland have been all over the place, but mostly unseasonably warm. Although I love warm weather the most, I regret having to bid adieu to my (growing) collection of boots. I dig boots.
So here’s what I wore today (temp in the mid-60s), thinking soon I’ll be swapping boots for flip-flops, a second-runner up in my mind for foot fashion.
Springtime layers and my beloved brown boots
Brown skirt from Juma Gallery; raincoat from NY&Co.
Blazer by Beebop & Wally (New York); handmade necklace, gift from love of my life’s mom
Oddly cold in Cleveland today! Odd because this winter has been the warmest ever — at least so far as I can recall. We had blizzard conditions all morning, and Abby and I had somewhere to be! We climbed into my Prius, hopped on the freeway, travelled a few miles in white-out conditions, and got right off at the next exit. Benefits of the entire white-knuckle trip: getting “cheap” ($3.36/gallon!) gas at that freeway exit and making it back home unscathed.
Comfy warm outfit perfect for a chilly day!
I’d bundled up this morning in anticipation of being “outdoors” (by that I mean running from car to door and back again). Generally, I like to start with a base of solid color, in this case grey. Today’s base outfit consisted of a grey turtleneck, grey skirt (note the zipper detail on the front — cute!), dark grey tights and grey slouchy boots. Benefit of using one color: it’s slimming.
Fact: grey is one of my fave colors. But I wanted to liven up my outfit. So I added a whimsical multi-colored knit scarf and pink/red over-the-knee socks, both of which provided extra warmth on this chilly day.
Result: Fun look, perfect for visiting the local art museum, or driving from one freeway exit to another.
