Nasty Winter, Go Away!

It’s been a week since the groundhog said we would have six more weeks of winter, and one week is already gone, so now what, five more weeks, and the winter is really gone? Yes please, I am so ready to finally welcome spring! After a rather cold and frustrating winter, one of the harshest I’ve ever had to witness in Canada, I would say bye-bye to it with no regrets. This year, we had it in full package – ice storms, snow storms, freezing rains, power outages, so please, please, please, go away already! Even this week, on Wednesday to be more precise, there was such a heavy snow fall in Toronto that I had to leave my office two hours earlier just to make sure I arrive home in time to pick up my son from day care before it closes, and luckily I managed to do it just 10 minutes shy the closing hour, and then I worked from home to finish whatever I was supposed to do in the office.

But I have my ways to deal with this nasty winter, and one of them is to defy it by dressing up, both at work and during the weekends. When I went out with my husband and son for some grocery shopping on one of these snowing weekends a short while ago, I didn’t hesitate to dress up. Yes I do dress up even for grocery shopping, and don’t tell me you don’t do that, at least sometimes. :) I wore a Banana Republic coral top, a cloche skirt in abstract print, a purple belt, Melanie Lyne and no name necklaces (I like jewelry layering), statement rings and a bracelet from H&M, burgundy tights, animal print booties, one of my winter coats (perfect for Canadian climate), a Fendi bag, a Burberry scarf.

I wouldn’t exactly qualify this story as an outfit post. First, because I don’t usually do OOTD posts, and second, because I didn’t quite take these pictures led by the idea of a photo shooting, in the sense the term “photo shooting” is generally understood by fashion bloggers. And my husband, who took these pictures, wasn’t the most patient photographer either. But rather, I wanted to cheer up on a particularly snowy weekend, so I thought some photos will do that. I didn’t even think of it when I left home, but the idea came to me in the car while on the road. We went for that shopping I mentioning earlier, and my photo camera was still in the car from the previous day when I had used it, so this photo taking was kind of an impulse. We stopped at this place, which is a covered entrance to a big store, to be sheltered from the falling snow, and took a few pictures, and I just thought of sharing them with you today. I actually shared one of these pictures on Facebook last night, and it got great feedback from my friends (thank you guys, love you!), so I thought to share a couple more here on the blog.
