Casual neutrals + fox print scarf

A quick note that the poll is still open to vote for your favorite outfit from February. Thanks in advance!

I mentioned this yesterday on my Facebook page, about how it’s nice to see spring clothing starting to pop up on some other style bloggers’ sites, as spring is becoming a reality for many people in many part of this country. But not this part of the country, and not this site. Yesterday, we experienced snow and wintry mix. Last week, we had hail. So y’all will continue to see several outfits featuring winter layers, tights, boots, and coats — including today’s outfit!

The germ of today’s outfit was inspired by this casual winter outfit I pinned years ago from Crazy Style Love. The starting point for me — what turned on the lightbulb, so to speak — was the idea of an attention-getting scarf on top of a classic tan overcoat. Simple as that. Jenny’s scarf is bright pink and attention-getting in terms of color, whereas my scarf is neutral-colored but attention-getting in terms of its novelty print of foxes. If it had not been raining, I would have also worn my animal-print flats (Jenny’s heels are animal print), but alas, I had to err on the side of practicality. 😉

I wore this outfit on a casual weekend morning, on our way to coffee and a late-morning movie. (We found a local movie house that plays new movies on weekends before noon for $7! Cheaper prices plus fewer people in the theater = mutual movie-going happiness.)

The dock was less crowded, as well, with more birds than people. I enjoyed that this bird decided to hang out with us during our quick photo-shoot. It was decidedly non-plussed.

We stopped off before our morning movie date to stroll one of the docks along the Ruston Way waterfront. This is also the same dock we took photos at this past summer! We often enjoy walking or going places in the rain — it always means less people! 😉 And I think the water, as well as the waterfront, are beautiful in different ways in the rain. There’s a unique kind of serenity to gazing out over a body of water when it’s overcast and a bit foggy.

But in addition to a multitude of birds taking advantage of a mostly deserted dock, there was a lone fisherman on one end — decked out (har har) in a bright yellow slicker. We couldn’t resist taking photos of the opportune moment. 🙂

One final look at my neutral winter layers and fox-print scarf. And another example of mixing black and brown neutrals together!
