April Fools! It’s NO joke! This is April in Ontario. I was hoping to put away my winter coats for the season but we had another snowfall. There’s a lovely nature trail through the forest behind my house and it does look beautiful with freshly fallen snow.
My cousin and friends in Germany are sending and posting photos of spring blossoms. My fashionable blogging friends are showing off their lovely spring outfits …
meanwhile in Canada …
I’m still wearing my SAVE THE DUCK puffer jacket. At least it’s pretty in pink and I’m wearing floral jeans and pink boots, perfect for spring, right?
Tam O’Shanter: upcycled and handmade by me
Jacket: Save the Duck (no feathers or down)
Jeans: United Colours of Benetton
Boots: faux suede (over 10 years old)
I made my Tam O’Shanter when I was a teenager. It’s upcycled from a skirt that I outgrew. My mom taught me to upcycle because they did it during the Depression and WWII (not that they used the term upcycling back then).
Jean and me in our SAVE THE DUCK puffer jackets: weightlessness and fluffiness, so warm with wind protection, drys rapidly, two-way zipper and zip pockets, machine washable.
Best part–it’s 100% ANIMAL FREE Outwear – “We replaced goose down with state-of-the-art technology, PLUMTECH®: it is warmer, more breathable and lighter. We have a daily commitment: to improve the sustainability of our company in full respect of the animals, the environment in which they live and the people who live there.”
How’s the weather in your neck of the woods?
