Winter Wonderland

Outfit Details: Patterned Skirt (Whitney Eve), Wool Sweater + Leggings (H&M), Necklace (Butterfly Beads), Handbag (Marc Jacobs), Combat Boots (Steve Madden)

I've come to a realization that if you are bundled up the right way, you won't hate winter as much. Of course I still prefer warm weather over all else, but having a wardrobe full of cozy mitts, scarves and wool socks really helps conquer the cold.

Plus, who says you can't look cute in a bulky sweater? In the outfit above I'm actually wearing a wool-blend sweater; it's so warm that I sometimes even break a sweat while working in the office. I'm still able to pair it with a beautiful patterned skirt and leggings and don't feel cold, as I usually top the outfit with matching winter accessories before stepping out the door.
January is looking great so far. I got a new Macbook Pro, which isn't the best thing for my wallet but much needed and deserved! I also caved and got a gym membership and have been eating fairly healthy with 1-2 cheat days a week. I have a few exciting projects that I'm currently working on and can't wait to share them with you here.

How is your January? Keep me posted!

    1. Yes, warm boots are a must! I often wear winter boots and change at work. Maybe I'll do an outfit with them on the blog. :)

  6. Oh snow .. Must see it one day: (
    You visited my blog and I came here to see your.. I'm following you back.

    1. You've never seen snow?! Toronto got some snow this year (finally), it has been a decent season for winter activities but the past few years were bad!

    2. Oh I never saw, because I live in Brazil and here, you know, it's just too hot haha (:
      Ah I put the second photo of the outfit on my blog, with credits:

    3. Oh my gosh, thank you so much! I love it. xoxo!

  7. Your skirt is so pretty and I love it with that sweater!! And look at all that snow! Im not sure i'll be seeing that this winter.


  8. hello! of course you look cute, but I wouldn't say that is a bulky sweater... I mean, I'm always quite cold and I do have some bulky sweaters I don't think are very flattering...! but anyway thanks for the advice, and yes I've started 2013 as you say: bit on a diet, new ideas, some excercise... love

    1. Hi Anna,

      No it's definitely not a bulky sweater, but it is super warm.

      I'm sure you can rock a bulky sweater though, maybe wear it with tights or leg warmers. If you accessorize nicely with bracelets or a necklace then you could make it work! :)

      Good luck with 2013!

  9. Great pictures! Love your look,especially the skirt :)

  10. it looks adorable on you! my favorites are the top and the boots :)
