I see fashion as something more permanent, like art or architecture - RO

Really like the simplicity of this outfit, and great outdoor photos. Is this your city centre? It looks very clean and streamlined. I'm wondering how much of your wardrobe works through multiple seasons? I know Canada has very cold winters but how distinct are your Spring/Summer/Autumn?

Thanks! This is the city centre - the area full of office buildings (I work right across the street).
I try to buy alot of pieces I can use for layering in the different seasons. There's no way I can afford a complete summer and then winter wardrobe. So what I wear in +35 needs to work somehow in -35 (yes, that's how drastic the temp changes from summer to winter). This I would probably try and get away with in the winter with leggings under the skirt (it's just a cotton blend) and a long sleeve top under the vest. And boots.

Adding to the conversation: A nice thing about RO clothing is its multi-seasonality. It's so conducive to layering and un-layering! Beyond that, the only consideration is fabric type. It's not much of an issue in my climate, as RO cottons/jersey blends work year round here. But I get chilled easily so I have a decent collection of Lilies lightweight wool blends for Texas fall/winter, which is short. Kim, if I'm not mistaken, you have a lot of those wool blends too, right? I'm sure wool layering is essential to surviving Canadian winters!

I seem to buy a mix of the cotton blends as well as wool blends. The wool is a bit hot for summer and the cotton is a bit thin for winter so I will never win. I figure with random layering it will all come together somehow.
