That green angora sweater <3

I have had this 80s agora  mix sweater for ages…I never had the guts to wear it because, well, it’s green. I just don’t really know it this color suits me all that much. Green, yellow and purple are colors I never usually gravitates towards because I feel like they make my complexion even darker than it already is. But today, I put my big girl pants on and got some courage to wear it. It’s so freaking soft too!!!

Hubs and I were walking around town and just went for a small stroll into the woods before we hung out with family. The weather was beautiful and it was good enough for me to just get away with wearing a  sweater without a jacket. October has been a good month so far and we’ve been super lucky. Hubs has enjoyed every moment he got here so far because it wasn’t too too cold (as it usually is in October).

So here’s how my outfit turned out…I guess you can say I kept it pretty simple because the green was a little overwhelming for me.

WHAT I WORE:

SWEATER: Vintage (80s) Rino Rossi  (posted for sale on ETSY)♦ JEANS: Buffalo (thrifted) ♦ BOOTS: Aldo ♦ SUNNGLASSES: Forver 21 ♦ BELT: Calvin Klein

In person, I guess I felt a little awkward wearing such a powerful color…but looking at myself through these photographs, I realize that I may be a little too harsh on myself and that green actually suits me and that my complexion is fine. We sometimes just put limitations and boundaries from ourselves to ourselves (if ya gys know what I mean). We need to be kind to ourselves once in a while…we tend to forget we’re human.

Wearing green actually made me happy as I fit in with nature and mt surroundings…or whatever green left there is in my surrounding. Taking some time off these past few weeks has made me realize that life needs to be enjoyed fully…make every moment worth it and last. Sometimes, we run to catch up with life and then we forget about the true core values of our lives such as family and health. It is necessary to taste what’s around us with our senses and our hearts.

As mother Teresa said: “Be happy in the moment, that’s enough, Each moment is all we need, not more.”

Another leather jacket look…

I have been quite obsessed with my Danier leather jacket. Since rediscovering it, I have been wearing it non stop. Today, hubs and I were strolling around the city to see different parts of Montreal and Laval…He wanted to see where I grew up and the places I liked the most…and so I needed to be comfy but I still wanted to be stylish and so adding my favorite leather jacket and heels made everything so much better.

And so, here’s today’s look:

I went for a thrifted straight leg jean because I am starting to get a little tired of the skinny jeans look…When I saw these Gap jeans, I knew I would like them. Even thought I was looking for style, I wanted to keep things simple and straightforward. I wore a black sweater I bought from Jericho a little while ago from a local shop…then added my leather jacket over it.

WHAT I WORE:

JACKET: Danier ♣ TOP: From a local shop in Jericho ♣ PANTS: Gap (thrifted) ♣ SHOES: Call it Spring ♣ BAG: Ebay ♣ NECKLACE: thrifted

Can I tell you how much I absolutely love this bag!!! I got this from Ebay and it just reminds me of summer…and I guess I am still holding on to summer.

Even though my look was pretty simple today, fall inspires me to dress up all the time. This weather is perfect to wear light sweater or light jackets…it allows you to add so many different colors because the scenery is colorful and inviting.

Fall is the season for me…sweater weather makes me so happy!
