It's Mustard Day in Megan and Keely's Fall Colours Fashion Challenge Week, and I'm double-posting today to catch up in time for this weekend's round-up, hooray! Out of all my more clearly yellow things, I most wanted to wear this gold-leaning-toward-pea-green jacket.
|hat: Toronto (early '90s)|
black velvet / silk scarf with gold metallic fabric and embroidery: gift from friend / coworker
blouse: Reitman's (2002), last worn here
long yellow-green (citrine!) velveteen jacket: Della Spiga, Winners (2005 or so), last worn here
obi belt: Elizabeth Kelly London, etsy, last worn here
pencil skirt: Smart Set, last worn here
shoes: Fly London, Body Blue (Danforth, Toronto, early 2000s)
I recall hiding under my hat during grad school in 1995, and remember wearing this jacket and shoes in 2005 on the occasion of finally, finally, being united with these boots.
It has been so comfortably warm and dry - for mid-November, which also made the Fashion Challenge so much easier - and all I added for warmth on this gorgeously sunny day was the hat and scarf. I haven't found my gloves yet, but luckily didn't need 'em.

Besides this and the cap I wore last week, I have just three other hats I'll likely wear sooner or later. Pretty much all except for today's hat I would keep on in the office during the workday. This is the only one which clearly says "outerwear" to me - I don't know how I know this, but there is probably a hat-etiquette reason why. Do you know it?
|I hate to tell you this, but yes - these shoes are as TOTALLY AWESOME and comfortable as one could ask.|
Thanks for all your support and encouragement regarding hats and other matters - I so appreciate your taking the time to visit and comment!

Tomorrow is the final day of the Challenge, Grey - which I suspect I'll be able to handle straight-up. Hope everyone's week is going well, and if nothing else, colourfully!
