While organizing my clothes, I came across this mint green blouse that I bought from Forever 21 during our Florida trip, and got reminded of why I liked it so much: the color, it's just so refreshing and cool. Before tucking it away, I thought I'd tried it on with a layering shirt (it's still winter after all), just to see how it looks with other colors. I liked it, hence it did not get tucked away. (Just realized that the second last picture was taken when wearing a different pair of pants...)

Is there a rule stating that you cannot wear gold and silver at the same time? If so, I'm violating it. At least I'm matching the blue in the shirt and heels...

I just love coats with hoods - they come in so handy whenever you need that little extra added warmth or help from the snow / rain. I read a saying the other day that went something to the effect of "there is no such thing as bad weather, there is only inappropriate clothing". This weather was fine, I think because I had appropriate clothing.

Snow Day Wear

Belt: RW&Co | Shoes: DKNY (black version)

Snow just wouldn't stop falling, thankfully the temperature wasn't too low. I really enjoyed the light and fluffy snow, except for one part - whatever snow that fell onto the light brown purse quickly turned into water spots, and later required careful cleaning to avoid water stains.

Walkable Heels

I used to avoid shorter heels thinking that they weren't "enough", but my views changed since I bought my burgundy zara heels (worn in this post here) last year. I loved them so much that I had to bring these gray ones home as well. I also used to think that ankle straps weren't meant for petite gals, and again, it was changed by these heels (among others).

Orange Peacoat

Booties: Costa Blanca (similar & on sale by Kenneth Cole Reaction)

This orange Old Navy peacoat was acquired at a great price ($16.99 with additional 30% off). Since none of my coats had ANY color, I thought I'd give it a try. I don't know how well this coat will hold up, but at least I will be able to test out the color / style without much to lose. So far I'm liking it.

Toronto was hit with the worst snowstorm in years (5 years, according to the news), this was how it looked the day after. Timing worked out, since the storm had stopped by the time we went to Mom and Dad's for Chinese New Year celebration. To add to the family theme, I wore this precious one-and-only knit sweater that my talented aunt made for me.

This is such an comfortable and cozy outfit for the weather I'm in now. The red color also brought color which is one of the goals of mine - wear more color, be brave!
