The weather is miserable here at the moment - we got a couple of inches of new snow yesterday, it's supposed to rain today and then snow again tomorrow - Spring in Winnipeg is always unpredictable. So today's outfit is for the weather - it's dark and moody, the boots are practical for the weather and the outfit is barely JFE, kind of like the weather.

My outfit started with my J Brand Earhart aviator trousers. I haven't worn these in ages since they are a little light weight for winter but it's warm enough for them now so out they come. I love the balloon-type leg and short length with the wide elastic band at the ankle and zipper detail. So fun! But I'm under no illusions that they are particularly figure flattering so I've tried to lengthen the leg line a bit by then adding my Doc boots.

To continue with the black column of colour, I added my black knit tank untucked and then topped it all with my bronze metallic open weave hi-lo cardigan. My black leather w/gold hardware handbag, red specs and red lipstick finish off the outfit. I would love to be able to wear a large cuff with this outfit but I've learned no jewelry with this open weave cardigan - everything gets caught on the fabric.

Thoughts ladies? Does this at least meet JFE standards or should I have gone with the black skinnies? As always, all comments/suggestions welcome.
