Ombre Sweater & Bomber Jacket

Two colourful outfits in a row (see last week’s light outfit), what’s gotten into me?ย This is a warmer upgrade of myย Seattle outfit with an ombre sweater, a beanie and chunky platforms. I liked the burgundy bomber and grey jeans together so much that I wanted to wear them again.

Clearly I’m a sucker for anything ombre. I’ve had my hair like this on and off for years. It’s something I keep going back to because I can never decide between dark or light. Picking favouritesย is hard when everything’s your favourite. I guess that’s why ombre appeals to me so much, it’s the best of both worlds blended together perfectly.

Jeans and a sweater has become my uniform lately because it’s gotten too cold for anything else. It’s been just a few weeks since these photos were taken and we’ve gotten the most intense snow storm I think I’ve ever seen in Vancouver. I feel like I’m in another city, as our winters are usually just wet (we’re very different from the rest of Canada).

Sorryย for bringing up the weather all the time but it really does affect me and subsequently how I dress. Luckily I can cheer myself up with gingerbread men, peppermint mochas, and Harry Potter marathons. Thanks for reading and I hope you can’t tell how freezing I am in these photos!

    No no, that sweater is totally up my alley– I love the ombre effect on this, and the scraggly fringes at the bottom. It gives it a roughened contrast against the clean cut maroon of the bomber. Yah, someone posted this gorgeous photo of a winter wonderland happening in Vancouver– but it indeed must be tres freezing!

    • Maria

      It’s actually that texture all over, which is why I love it so much! I find that material is softer than a traditional knit, and just as warm ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes it is really cold, but we usually go through at least one cold snap every winter so I’m hoping it will end soon and we can go back to our mild rain.

    A Harry Potter marathon sounds divine right about now! We had some snowfall here too, but not much. It’s just supposed to be extremely cold in a few days. I’m waiting for some snow coverage so I can wear my light colored clothing too – and subsequently camouflage myself in the landscape LOL.


    • Maria

      I’m kind of sad that it’s over and I’m not sure if we’ll get a chance to see Fantastic Beasts in theatres ๐Ÿ™
      Haha I’m thinking of braving the cold for a snow shoot too, as much as I hate it, I know the photos will look good.
