Outfit Shout Out: Late Afternoon

You know when you see an outfit on one of your favourite bloggers and immediately want to wear it but have none of the same pieces? This happens to me all the time. I'm going to try and re-create them with items I have already more often. This outfit is inspired by this post from the so so so stylish Liz at Late Afternoon. Unfortunately I don't own salmon coloured pants,  a furry-collared anorak, or cute boot wedges. I made do with what could find though! There isn't really a "fashion scene" in rural Alberta (unless you count carhartts) so I mostly get all inspiration from you guys!

Since it snowed another 6 inches or so last night, I had nowhere snow-free to take pictures except.....the old outhouse! haha. Who knows when this thing was built. Our house was actually a barn/shop before we renovated it into a house so I'm guessing this was necessity as the bard/shop didn't have a bathroom. Lucky for me we have numerous indoor bathrooms now. I would be very sad if I had to go out there in this weather! Talk about drafty!

ignore the silly face
jacket - thrifted (my mom's)
jeans - gap
shirt - costa blanca
boots - uo
xena bracelet - thrifted
theres a lot of leaning going on here
