Happy February … roses roses roses

February – the month of hearts and roses …

roses 1

Today’s outfit is monochromatic roses: everything from my top to toes.

I love the textures of this long top: black velvet roses and a chiffon hem that looks like I’m wearing a blouse underneath–instant layering. The black chiffon hem is perfect for pattern mixing

Top: Reitmans
Leggings: Aeorpostale
Boots: Target

Leggings are a staple in my wardrobe because I teach dance and wear them to classes often, so I have more than a dozen pairs.

These ones are faux lace. (Is there such a thing as faux lace?) At any rate, they have a pretty lace pattern.

A close up view shows the lace print looks so realistic.

I bought my faux lace rubber boots at Target when they were closing last year (boo hoo! so sad they closed after only two years in Canada).

I have a collection of silver roses jewellery; my necklace, earrings, bracelet and ring are roses.

    Is there a more romantic flower than a rose? This is a perfect subject of your clothes and jewelry!
    Those rubber boots are nice and the faux lace leggings very pretty!
    I love roses in every shade of colour and have often chosen them as a subject for my crocheting…
