Russian-style luxe

I had no idea what to title this post, but I ended up reducing it to the Russian stereotype of fur, red and gold accents and rich patterns. I don't get many chances to take photos of stuff I wear outside of work (that is, when I'm not puttering around the house in sweatpants, or heading to and from the gym in workout gear).  I used an Ottawa blogger meet-up as an one of the last opportunities to wear office-inappropriate shorts before the temperatures really drop. It was great to finally meet the blogger behind Hippie Lace, and catch up with the gals of Tinfoil Tiaras and A Fine Balance over yummy Mexican.

    Ooooh, I really like this look! I thought the fur scarf was a vest at first, but I like it more as scarf, it looks amazing layered with the red scarf. (I never thought to layer scarves, but it looks amazing, it adds more dimension to the look.) The shorts over the tights looks very sleek, and the pop of red is the heels really ties in the red scarf. :)


I genuinely enjoy reading everyone's comments. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts!
