Twirl

 Old Navy coat, Unknown jacket (thrifted & last seen here), H&M dress (last seen here),
Garage skirt, Aldo wedges, Givenchy tights & H&M cuff

Confession:  I bought these shoes in black, as you can see.  I initially tried to get them in black, during my trip to Toronto but they didn't have the black in my size.  I ended up loving the brown equally as much as soon as I slid them on.  However, I still wanted the black... especially after how much I was rocking the brown.  I checked online and sure enough they still had my size (rare). 

So this dress is one of the items I purchased in Toronto and I'd been dying to wear it.  It's a little on the short side in the front so I was unsure about wearing it to work, especially with a nude coloured tight.  However, using my skirt-under-a-dress-trick it worked out perfectly.  And good thing too as when I left on my lunch break it was quite windy and my dress was gusted up, up and away a la Marilyn and had I not been wearing the skirt I would have flashed several middle-aged men out for their smoke break.  Close call.

I scrolled all the way back to your Toronto trip and caught up from there. I'm so happy you had a good time here and were able to find some great things.

You look gorgeous. And I especially like that trick with the skirt under a dress thing. I sometimes try bicycle shorts too but it doesn't look as sophisticated.
