good morning everyone - hope the weekend was fun! it was a cloudy gray few days for us, and there is now wet snow outside - it will gradually get warmer as the day goes by. these funky days are hard to dress for, so i wear my trusty trench and layer underneath. i have yet to find a trench coat that fits me just right. this one is long on me in the sleeves and bigger in the body, but it works for now. our weather here is so rough, i wear my north face parka here more often than any coat. hope you all stay warm and dry today! xox
p.s. you'll probably notice that the blog address is now less of a mouthful.. i'm slowly making changes to make reading this blog easier, and the first one is that you can get here with just phiphisblog.com. :)
wearing the gap's slim cropped refined pants (here and today in canada there is a 30% off sale - works on sale items too: use code 24HOURSCDA - which also works with banana republic and old navy), and j crew's tippi sweater in leopard (sold out online but here is the link for the item number). i got the tippi on the last batch of j crew's sale, and am tickled with it. it's a merino wool sweater, fine enough to layer under a blazer or put a blouse underneath, but also warm. the one i'm wearing is an XS.
as you can see from the pants, they are a bit more relaxed in the leg than the black gap ones i wore before. the material is also a bit thinner than the black ones but it is a nice fabric with a bit of stretch as well. the red is vibrant also, which makes it fun. the waist fits the same as gap/banana republic bottoms, and i took a 0 in these.
