Pull Quotes


I felt a little kooky wearing this today. Kooky or perhaps "erotic grandma", as was described by a friend? I dunno, but it ended up being wholly inappropriate for the weather. I seriously had to go inside and put on my snow boots after taking this picture because I realized that Doc Marten mary janes were probably not the best footwear for trudging around snowbanks. Winter appropriate clothing is totally overrated, no? I'd much rather be a chilly rainbow snowman...

My winter clothing is my summer clothing, just with tights! But then again, I live in a land of perpetual sunshine...

Marlena said...

I love your top!
And the erotic grandma comment,lol.

I'm also with you on winter clothing being overrated.
I'm ready for spring damn it!

Girl, you look damn fine. The shirt look like its vintage 60s Pucci. So good.

"erotic grandma" might be one of the funniest phrases ever... my google analytics tells me a lot of people find my blog while searching "granny tranny" because one of my friends nicknamed me that and I wrote about it... I'm sure the same thing will happen to you now, and there will be many disappointed erotic granny enthusiasts out there.

Anyway, I LOVE this look. The print on the top is so fun and the colors and textures are excellent!

WendyB said...

I love that top. So cheerful!

diane said...

You look more than ready for Spring girlie, haha.
I love your colorful outfits as of late.

samantha said...

kooky is always good. you were a kooky grandma and i was a kooky business woman today! we both sported a top knot too.

Amy said...

Love it. Awesome colours! Yeah, the snow (and RAIN) have been ridiculous here, too. Next winter I am buying proper boots... even though I've said that every winter since seventh grade and still haven't done it yet.

Bee said...

I really like the color combination! And weather appropriateness can suck it. I say, dress for your mood, not your surroundings.

Rachel said...

so last year I complained about all the snow, this year I miss it. I'm seriously jealous of those snowbanks you're trudging through. Love the outfit, but if does look a bit chilly for the weather.

Daisy said...

Miss Woo said...

Aww! That often times happens to me as well! I'll pick out cute outfits, and then I take a look outside and grumble a bit.

Sometimes the function over fashion must prevail with big books and bundling up!

I still love the assembles you create!

haha, your friend is amazing for calling you an erotic grandma! i would have just said you look really awesome? but the erotic grandma is much more amusing..

chloe said...

haha, I agree. Winter appropriate clothing? So over it.

Sin-ger said...

Not the best footwear but they look great with your outfit.

Dhu said...

'Erotic grandma', eh? I can see that, it's a genius description of that outfit.
That's an awesome cardigan by the way, I love bright colours.
Don't even get e started on appropriate winter clothing, I pout in defeat whenever I have to leave the house and put on boots and big bulky coats.

Amelia said...

I love the print of the shirt. This is awesome.

the iron chic said...

haha. Jay has ONE pair of boots and they are totally soaked 24 hours a day...so glad I am a girl and have 6 rotating pairs of fashionable and warm boots. This is Canada after all!

MissKellie said...

Your outfits are always so much fun! I love it! :D
