Floral dresses in the winter

This might not seem practical, especially living in Ottawa! But I have found a way to make it work and actually stay warm. It is the wonderful thing that is called layering. Mastering the art of layering is tricky, and sometimes leaves you looking like a hobo. But fear not…there are way around this.

This is my favourite look this winter!

Start with tights and socks.

H&M tights are pretty thick!

But if you want to pair them with knee highs, I strongly suggest a skin toned tight, makes for a better look.

Calvin Klein

Time to put on the dress! Oh floral print, how I love you.

But if there is one rule, avoid floral tank dresses. Much too summery for right now, despite all the layering ahead! I prefer short sleeved and flowy!

Not exactly floral, but this is the style I usually go for..

Now we’ve got the dress, time to add some denim. What did you expect, especially from myself!?

Baggy is better. My favourite oversized denim shirt is by Ralph Lauren. So delicious. Also, light wash is preferable in my case. Oh, and always leave the denim undone, so as to show off the dress!

Up next, a cardigan on a chilly day. The chunkier the better.

Now for the finishing touches before heading out the door!

1. A good boot

My feet cannot lie…these boots are to die for. I love love love them! Best of my purchases this winter, and pretty impressive for Aldo.

2. A sweet scarf

Cable knit rules. No questions.

3. A long jacket

Nothing like a killer wool jacket to keep you warm and fuzzy.
