Confession time: I fantasize about certain outfits I want to wear and just wait for the right weather conditions to wear them in. This means that long before the leaves change colour in autumn, I know which skirt I want to pair with boots and tights on the first crisp day of the season. I know the dress I want to wear when the first scorching summer day dawns. And I can't wait to pull out a certain scarf or coat in the dead of winter.
This outfit was born out of said fantasies. I thought of it over the weekend after hearing that sunny skies and a balmy 16 degrees Celsius (albeit with a brisk wind) were forecast for Monday, and on the morning of, I couldn't resist donning 3/4 sleeves, capris, and peep-toe shoes. It balanced my desire to wear something a little more spring-like with a need to stay warm in case the weather report had been too optimistic.
