a last salute to winter

I see some very hopeful signs of spring (not to mention that this afternoon is supposed to be +17!), but there are a few lingering "wintery" days. And it's this time of year when it's chilly in the mornings so I bundle up, but by the time I'm leaving work I have to shed all those layers!

So here is my last salute to winter! It's been great, but it's time to say goodbye! And what better way than with one of my favourite winter dresses, which is certainly not suitable for summer weather (ie. is it 100% wool AND lined).

 Wool hounds-tooth vintage dress.
 
 Red 1980's blazer

 Handmade necklace RB bought me in Vancouver.

 Vintage leather belt

 I love the little buttons all the way up the back of this dress.

The only thing about winter ending that makes me sad, is having to put this dress away in my closet until the cold weather again.


AND IN OTHER EXCITING NEWS!
I am going to be an auntie for the first time! I'm sooo excited for the wee one to come in August, so I can spoil him/her with lots of adorable little outfits!
