Bad Things Come in Threes?

I realize in that last pic my it looks like I was electrocuted by the fence behind me, hence the frizzled hair sticking out of my head but I assure you I am fine, I just forgot to use hairspray that day. The coat I am wearing is one of my favorites from my closet. I got it from H & M about two years ago and I wear it all year round except in -30 degree weather of course, when nothing but a down-filled parka or a coyote hide is suitable. Just kidding about the coyote hide, I'm a Vegetarian remember?

How was your weekend? Mine was okay but MAN I've been having some bad luck recently. In the span of one week I got a flat tire, broke my laptop again after an hour after I picked it up from the repair shop (can you believe it??) and on Sunday, while ice skating with D. I fell on my butt into a half-split and threw my hip out of alignment so now I'm walking around like an old granny with a bad back. Thank goodness my best friend is a physio therapist and is helping me out! I guess things can only go up from here. After I have my 2.5 hours gum surgery this afternoon, my luck will change, right?? It has to!

OUCH! I hope you're feeling better now :( Stay away from high heels until you're fully recovered! :)

But seriously, how did you manage to look so effortlessly chic in this casual laid-back outfit??!?! Love the subtle floral print on the scarf and your boxer boots! :D

Oww so sorry to hear about your unluckiness. Hope you get well. I adore this outfit, the parka is perfect and I feel like H&M has the best ones but I can never seem to find one.

Nikosmommy said...

What an amazingly awesome week you've been having!
:(. Things can only go up from here, hope your surgery goes smoothly, hang in there!

Patricia said...

I love the jacket too - my friend has a similar one from Old Navy and I can't stop ogling it. I'll need to get one eventually. Also, I've been debating those boots for months now. Hmm.

It's true though, it really can only get better from there! That does sound like a terrible week but at least you're continuing to be optimistic.

Catita said...

oh marie hope this terrible luck of yours is in the past now and that your gum surgery went well! Sucks about the laptop, I got my new iphone saturday and already sunday I had dropped it, scratched and dented it...yeah sucks but its still alive!
On a better note, love that scarf and parka and wedges! Great look hun!

JennaStevie said...

Jesus!! You really do have bad luck, well you know what happens after a string of bad luck?! GOOD LUCK! So buy a lottery ticket ;)
Hope all goes well with the gum surgery and your poor hip.
I love this jacket, military type jackets in this colour are my favourite thing. I need to replace mine because it's starting to get holes!

Bri said...

I'm sure your bad week is over and it's nothing but great things from here on out!

I love you jacket, always a fun style and great with the contradictory floral scarf!

Couture Carrie said...

Tracy D said...

Oh my gosh I'm so sorry about your luck and I think you'll hit a real low point with the gum surgery..so it can only go up from here! Feel better soon :)

Alexandra said...

Hahaha oh no love, well you know what, things CAN only go up. All my bad luck seems to happen in big waves like that as well, and the good news is that it can't possibly last. And as for these pics, I love the little wisps! This outfit is stunning - I love the soft colours and those booties are to die for.

hope you're having better luck this week.... it happened to me to.... being sick, cancelling on trips / tennis classes etc haha. Better luck for us ;) At least you looked chic and glad to hear you weren't hurt from being electrocuted!

Anna & Maria said...

Love your outfit here, where did you get all those wonderful bracelets that you stacked? Looks great! The jacket is awesome - we are actually getting a similar one in our boutique, but with some faux fur on the hood! Your wedges are awesome too, and funny enough, we just a feature on wedges in our blog! Too bad we didn't see this post, would have loved to include yours in it too!
