OOTD - Lace Dress + Military Jacket



Happy Good Friday, Noobs!  Imagine my delight when I found out that I had the holiday off (a rarity in my line of work), and then my crushing disappointment when I saw the weather forecast for the day - clouds and rain.  Already having planned to wear a delicate white knit dress for the day, I decided to stick with the plan but make some alterations.  Boots replace heels, and a military jacket as a substitute to a blazer.  Add in a pair of androgynous sunglasses, and my original vision is a little more weather appropriate.  Read on for additional photos and outfit details.




Military Jacket - Aritzia, Lace Dress - H&M, Boots - Frye Carmen Harness (Short)
These Frye boots are some of my favourites.  The quality of the leather is incredible - so soft, they require no time to break in.  The heel is a perfect height too, and I could walk for days in these boots.

I told my husband that I felt like John Lennon in this outfit - he told me that I was crazy!
Who do you agree with?

The Ray Ban club master sunglasses took me a little longer to warm up to - I originally found them to be a bit too masculine for my tastes, but gradually started to appreciate their timeless shape and ability to add instant casualness.


Have a great start to the long weekend!
