if you can't convince 'em, confuse 'em

Sweater from J.Crew  Jeans from A&F  Boots from Local Boutique  Scarf/Earings from Aldo  Watch from Fossil   

This past week the animals round' here have been very confused. The spring like weather has made squirrels hurry up their mating, and I would know...oh the perks of living behind a ravine. Some of the geese decided not to migrate at all this winter, and instead took up residence in the parking lot. 

But the animals are not the only ones confused by the unexpected warmth, my closet is having a pretty hard time too. Blacks, that are usually staples during this time of year, have been pushed to the back and neglected, while the greys and nudes have slowly made their way forward.

Though you haven't convinced me yet weather, only left me slightly confused. I know you still have some snow up your sleeve. So for now, me and my closet are going to keep our guard up. At least for another month. Mister groundhog did see his shadow after all.

hahaha the mating of the squirrels you poor thing! that must not be fun for you. But I've been confused as to what to wear as well. sometimes I leave the house in full on winter gear and then it's too hot! and I feel like I'm always dressed for the previous day. love the outfit thought, chic and casual :)

The weather the past few days here in Seattle has been super crazy spring like too! It was 58 degrees yesterday...wtf?!?

Anyways, your outfit is super cute. I love how simply chic it is, esp. with that glorious scarf!

This outfit is just gorgeous. Somehow I had a feeling we'd both update our neglected blogs the same day! Haha! You must be so busy! Oh Katya... This color combo works so well with your hair and your figure and I LOVE light denim. My best friend really doesn't like it that much and likes to remind me a lot haha but I disagree. I think it looks gorgeous especially with a light color palette. Most of mine has been pushed to the back just because my friend doesn't like it--I'm silly like that--but you've just reminded me of how much I love it! Your weather has been crazy? We've had THREE snow days just between Sat and Sat. It's insane. Now I have three days of lessons to make up and it's just crazy. The weather has been acting so weird lately. I'm a little jealous of it all the same! On your end, not mine. Ok, back to your outfit... I love that scarf. It's gorgeous.

Your hair looks really pretty in this picture. What products do you use before you start drying your hair?

Katya said...

We've had unseasonably warm weather as well... No complaints, I just wish it would stick around! But I, like you, am not convinced :) Of course, I wear black year-round, so nothing changes for me. I love the spring-like neutrals in this look, though, and your earrings are absolutely gorgeous!
xox,
Cee

I love the lighter colours though I tend to wear both them and black during the winter months. I do feel pretty bad for you about the mating squirrels, haha!

I hear ya this winter has been so strange, still I'm pretty happy bring the colours out! :)

Katya said...

hahah very well put, toronto has been on quite a whirlwind of weather in this past year. I am finding it so hard to dress for the weather, so awkward and in between.

That scarf is perfect, I love the print.
The weather has been crazy here too, it's supposed to be summer but it's felt more like autumn for what seems like forever!!

Katya said...

I live the earrings and the scarf.

Katya said...

this oddly warm weather has definitely made getting dressed a challenge!
But i'm all for early spring... bring on the pastels!

Katya said...

hi Katya,

my gosh, i have to thank you SO much for visiting me and leaving such sweet comments! my apologies for not coming over here sooner, your space is beautiful and i LOVE the "who?me?" description, how cute : ) i'm always stoked to see a fellow Canadian doing her thing - you've got incredible taste in clothes + omg LOFTS!!!!! can't get them outta my heart with a chisel or a rake, who'd want to anyways, you're right...they rock!

adore the soft tones in this outfit with your dark chocolate hair and eyes - nice segway into potential temp increases. it's been weird here too, our cats have started to shed and it seems so early for that to happen. go figure, weather systems are perplexing that's for sure.

happy week to you!!!

Did you dye your hair? Looks great, and I love that scarf. I don't mind this confused weather, but the animals sure are confused.

Katya said...

I love those boots, they look so luxurious. This is an amazing casual-chic look, and you look lovely!

This winter weather has me so confused as well. I was so exicted that I thrifted an amazing Fur Coat, and couldn't wait to wear it in our usually super cold weather...but I guess it's just not happening!
You do look lovely though :) I love the lighter colours in this outfit!
