Dare to Bare

Tuesday, December 11, 2012 134 0

Skirt: J.Crew. Top: BCBG. Coat: Frenchii (old). Clutch: Charming Charlie. Shoes: Boutique 9. Rings: Coach, Kate Spade. Belt: H&M. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

Over the last few weeks, I’ve had several people ask how I dared to bare my tights-free legs in this cold Toronto weather. Well, Mother Nature seems to be moody lately here in the North. Β One day she’s happy, giving us temps in the 50’s (like the day I wore this outfit), the next she’s cranky and it’s Wintery cold, like today when the temperature is not forecasted to hit above freezing. Β Looking on the bright side, colder temps mean I get to wear all of my cute winter accessories and layers!

    It really is all over the place these days – but I love being able to rock the bare legs in December for a break from the tights. Love your colour palette here!

    Your clutch is awesome, not to mention the fact that you can get away with bare legs still!
    Do you guys get chinooks out East? I’m always thankful for them here in Alberta and the relief from the crazy cold weather they bring, it helps to get through the long winters!

    • Jenny
      December 11, 2012

      Thanks so much Bri! No, unfortunately we don’t get the Chinook winds in the East, but our Winters don’t get nearly as cold as yours either. Thank goodness you have those!

    It’s been snowing here since mid-October so I can’t even imagine going tights-less right now… I miss west coast weather (except maybe not the rain). Love this colour combo, Jenny! You always look so polished and put -together πŸ™‚

    I don’t think I can go bare legs when the temperature is anything below 60 but I celebrate that you can do it! I really love that clutch and how lovely the pink and burgundy came together in this very feminine outfit!

    Oh girlfran, I would’ve frozen to death if I wore that outfit in 50 degree weather! That’s ice cold to me! Haha! Anyway, I’m still totally in love with that coat (you’ve worn it before, right?) and I really love that clutch! I’m surprised to see it’s Charming Charlie because it looks so luxe.

    I am confused why someone would dress so light in this weather condition. It is so unrealistic.

    • Jenny
      December 11, 2012

      Thanks for your comment Chris. Ha ha, I think this outfit is realistic because I really wore it. I felt very appropriate as our weather was nice that day. I don’t feel that one must dress in all black and heavy layers just because it’s cold out. All that matters to me is that I’m comfortable…and I was.
