Outfit deets: Sunnies, F21; Newfoundland wool turtleneck sweater, 29th birthday gift from my mom; Jeans jacket, Thrifted, brand Buffalo by David Bitton; Maxi skirt, Winners; Boots, floral Doc Martens.
My mom sent me this sweater from Newfoundland last year for my birthday. When I last wore it on Fashion Flirt, Mom commented on the post with how she would like to see it styled:
“try it with a long jean skirt and boots.
you can still use a scarf.
it is a hug from us.
Now, I don’t own a long jean skirt, but I’ve been obsessed with this grey jersey knit maxi skirt since finding it (while shopping with Mom) at a Winners in St. John’s. To bring in the jean component to this outfit, I topped it off with the jeans jacket, and to mirror the florals in the sweater, I decided to wear these Docs – shoes I’ve owned for half my life.
So, Mom, here is the outfit you styled for me. I love it, and the sweater was warm enough that I didn’t need a winter jacket outfit, just the jeans jacket. There’s also something really satisfying about wearing florals mid-winter. So wonderfully unseasonable, just like Winnipeg’s weather. Winnipeg in November isn’t known for it’s gorgeousness, and yet?
