We all have our default outfit for any occasion... you know, the outfit we default to when you want to look put together yet you threw it all on in two seconds. The outfit you wear when you want to go shopping at the mall, doing errands, or going to school. I almost always wear this outfit at least twice a week, and these knit ponte pants from ASOS and a striped knit top. To tell you the truth, I wear these pants so much that thinking about them inevitably being worn till it's completely destroyed gives me anxiety attacks because it is my favourite pants and I don't think I can find anything else like it. With striped knits, I actually have a striped knit problem... I'd like to say I own too many but for me, I can never own too many striped knits or anything striped, really. I'm obsessed. Pair it with a scarf and lipstick and ta-da!

I love this outfit, I love it because I think it really is what describes my style as a whole. People always tell me that when they think of my style it's black and white, stripes, outrageous glasses, and something red -- either in a form of a garment, accessory, or a lip colour. Yet, as much as I like this outfit... I'm dying to be able to wear skirts and dresses again while bare-legged. As you can see in the photos there is still snow, and yes, it is still cold as hell. At least there's not that much snow or ice on the sidewalks so I can actually wear my different types of shoes again. Until then it's trousers and knits for me until Winnipeg gets its actual spring...
