Petite Fashion Challenge #22 :: Blue, Black & Leopard




 



Fedora and Sweater : F21 //  Tights: Mango (similar) // Scarf : Aldo // Shoes: Vince Camuto //







My second time entering a blog challenge, I'm super excited to be taking part in A Preponderance To Fashion's challenge this month. She challenged us to dress for the elements (wind, rain, snow, sleet etc) while going shopping with friends. I am grateful that we don't get a bitter cold winter in Jamaica, however, where I live in the mountains it is not uncommon to have to layer up during the winter, so this outfit would be perfect for some cooler temperatures. My sons and I went fruit shopping yesterday, to capture some of the essence of Jamaica, I hope that counts as shopping for extra points :D




I chose this outfit because of a couple reasons, I love the cobalt or electric blue in the sweater that I got at Forever 21 and secondly, I have actually worn this outfit in the sub-zero temperatures of Toronto while shopping, with the addition of a winter coat, a woolen hat, and insulated rider boots. 

Gotta say I love how things I've bought over the years still manage to be on trend. There is one basic principle I stick with while shopping at Forever 21, and it is that I never buy their prints, I only buy solids and I am very careful how I launder them. 

Hope everyone is as excited for the New Year as I am! I am truly grateful for the new beginnings that a New Year yields, and after reading so many blogs about resolutions, the one connecting thread I noticed was to 'set realistic small goals'.That's it. Don't stress yourselves out over huge goals, just take them one step at a time, little by little, as they say : 'How do you eat an elephant? .... One bite at a time.'

Well look at that! I'm actually beating the 3pm posting deadline! ;)

Thanks for reading xoxo
