Back to basics, I like to say. Strips are a simple, easy, basic pattern to wear and I was surprised to find I didn't have as many striped items in my closet as I thought I did! HA!
Edmonton has been strangely "warm" these past couple of weeks. And by "warm" I mean temps range from a balmy -5 to a nippy -10 (that's Celsius people....cause it's Canada up in here...). So I can get away with wearing my lovely Value Village sweater, that I snagged last time Nicole was up.
That goofy smile on my face is because Nicole is in town this week as well (yippee!!) and just after I took these photos - and worked out at the Spa Lady in whose parking lot said photos were taken - I got to meet up with her for bad food court Thai food and another trip to VV! Where I filled a cart, met some interesting characters, and spent a tonne of cash-money....but that's a story best left for another post!
I feel sort of preppy in this outfit, which I'm not too sure about. Must be the khakis....
Now you must head off in to the interwebs sometime today to meet a group of lovely ladies, and see what they have to say about this whole plaid thing!

P.S. The cold is back today, but I stubbornly put my sweater back on this morning. I know now that I will regret this when I've got to head home and the snow & wind begin to blow around the -17 we're expecting to hit this afternoon. Could be worse!
