Faux Leather, Gingham, and Houndstooth

Back in November I posted this to express my love for the oversized plaid scarf trend. I finally got myself one a couple, and the conclusion is that I think this love affair is going to be a long lasting one. The faux leather jacket and gingham shirt layers alone didn't seem to be the warmest nor the most interesting combination, but adding this big houndstooth scarf just made everything fine. 

I actually don't love the cuffed boyfriend jeans and the lace up booties together. I put the booties on in a rush since I needed something with full coverage to keep warm. A pair of pumps would probably be a better choice otherwise.

Plaid Coat and Layered Faux Fur Collars

This Old Navy plaid coat's fur collar is removable, but instead of removing it, I cozied it up some more with my trusty old American Eagle puffer vest with fur hood - because you know, this is what people do when spring arrives! OK seriously, I'm looking forward to wearing this coat without extra layers, because this is the perfect early spring (or late fall) coat: good length, light, cozy, and great pattern. 

Speaking of spring coats, I can't wait to bring my trench coats, denim jackets, bomber jackets, and leather jackets out! Now let's hope they will all still fit.

Happy first day of Spring! The weather certainly doesn't feel anywhere near yet, but it's a good start! With the days getting longer, and the weather getting warming, I can finally find some motivation to start posting again.  On this still frigid day, I pulled out my favourite pieces to stay warm - a big coat and turtlenecks, two of them!

And of course I'm still in my maternity pants! To those who can fit into their pre-pregnancy clothes right after having a baby, I say: Good job! I don't like you!

Baby: Two Months

Olivia has grown up quite a bit in the last two months. I can't believe how many Newborn / 0-3 months clothes I had to pack away!

What's more and more obvious everyday is her increasing ability to respond and interact with us. The goofier I make myself sound, the bigger her smiles get. She also makes the cutest coo sounds.

Time, you must slow down.
