...I'm an adult

So, if you read my blog, you know that I have a son... I make sure he does his home work,  basically keep him alive every day, I have owned property, been married and am steadily approaching 40.  One would think that sometime during all of that I would have felt like an adult, but alas until just recently when I glanced down to find myself in seasonably appropriate attire I had the realization that I have just NOW become an adult.

Remember those days when you were a slave to fashion?  Who cared if it was down right arctic outside, if a blazer was the only fashionable choice for outerwear, then I wore a blazer.  And let's not even discuss footwear!  I would slip and slide in heels all over ice like Bambi rather than wear a warm, practical boot!  I would actually have rather stayed in, than wear a coat and snow boots.  

So when did it become so damn cute to look all outdoorsy and winter-y?  Is it that I am totally old, or is lumberjack, outdoorsy chic totally cool (Please don't answer the old question!)?

Hope you all had a fun, winter-y, fantastic weekend!!

xx, Elise

  12. Hearing your thoughts about past fashion choices made me reflect back on mine and think about some of the unreasonable choices I made too. I enjoy how you've made a stylish outfit from practical clothing. I love your coat!

  16. Oh no! You're growing up? Sorry to hear that. lol. I can't believe that with all you have on your plate you haven't done so already. I guess that just proves you're youthful energy is stronger than anything else. As for the sporty look, you're so right. All of a sudden it's cool to look like your a girl who enjoys the outdoor. I have friends that wear Barbour and & Canadian Goose. They're not preppy at all nor do they snowboard. I give them a hard time because they used to make fun of me for wearing those brands. I'm sure when the trend is over we won't see any of these styles around....unless it's true to who the person is.
