Style: Friends

Just like that, it's cold. Icy, blue-skied, clear, frosty cold.
And I like it. You want to know why? Because the horses do. This kinda weather - dry, sunny, cold, crisp - is heaven to them. So it is to me, too. We love anything that isn't grey and wet.
Today I let them out on pasture again, which is something we are rarely able to do in the months of November to April. Usually, in the winter months, they have to be in their stalls at night, and in paddocks during the day, which is fine, but not freedom.
Being on the pasture is freedom. They can run, kick, roll, interact with the llamas and sheep, and pretend to be free. They are so happy to be out, which, in turn, makes us happy, too.

Living somewhere where you still have green grass (even if it coexists with a lot of mud) in the middle of November is very special. West coast of Canada, I love you. 

I never wore leggings before. Ever. I declared them to be hideous and a clear sign of having given up.
Until I found this pair at Winners - I had to have them. No need to explain the greatness of leggings to any of you - you already know. It was me who was too stubborn to admit to their awesomeness. 
But now I have seen the light, and I LOVE them. There may be more in my future...

Boots: Lotta From Stockholm; leggings: Winners (similar); T-shirt: Smart Set (old); cardigan: Winners; scarf: from Germany; headband: Forever 21 (similar); hairclip (on head band): Shoppers Drug Martsunnies: ancient and cheap from Otter Co-op (my favourite neighbourhood store) 

In case you have ever wondered what the behind-the-scenes of my photo shoots look like, here is a little peek: This is me trying to avoid the dogs (=Lily) jumping up on me with muddy paws. The other dogs, of course, want to play, too! It's ridiculous. 
Happy Friday!

  1. What adorable leggings!!! We have some similar to that at Target but not nearly as colorful. I'd wear those in a heartbeat! And your headband looks warm and cozy :) I'm going to have to look into one of those for these arctic Minnesota winters!

  2. I am not a fan of leggings either ! Looks like just the right amount of sun - lovely !!

  3. Love the leggings! If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. That was my approach to finally accepting the idea of leggings as pants substitutes. :) I also love those behind the scenes photo shoot pictures with the dogs!! So fun.

  4. Love this outfit. Just the right amount of color--and the leggings are a great pattern. Great photos too. Love your sidekicks :)

    1. Haha thanks, me too! They are fun to be around.
      Bright colours brighten my days, I love wearing them.
