Marled Cardigan for Fall

Fall is in full-swing in Toronto (we've even got a full winter-wonderland type of thing happening in London right now, but I digress...).  With the colder weather in full-swing, I'm back in the grind of mastering the art of layering (or, some might say, bundling).  What can I say, it gets chilly over here!

During Fall/Winter my equation stays generally the same:

Warm = Skinny (bottoms + top) + Oversized Layer (tee + sweater) 

I love the look of an over-sized sweater or cardigan.  In neutral textures and colours, they're so easy to pair with outfits to complete a warm look.  An over-sized sweater truly creates an effortless way for you to make a basic skinny jean + tee combo look very put together and balanced.  And we can't forget the warmth it provides!  I suggest always pairing an over-sized sweater with a skinny bottom. Either warm leggings or skinny jeans will do just fine, but you could even go as far as pairing your over-sized sweater with a body-hugging skirt.  *ooh la la...*

This particular heather grey marled cardigan is from Joe Fresh.  I loved it so much I had to get it in two colours!  I'm not sure if they're still carrying it, but it's worth checking out if you have a Joe Fresh or Loblaws nearby! ;)

On another note, I went on a limb and got some clear glasses.  Thoughts??  I'm not completely sold on them yet, but I've been trying to make them work!  I think they work way better with more of a neutral make-up look on, like I have on here.

Uncleanard Glasses from Lookmatic  |  Necklace c/o POPBASIC  |  REVLON Colorburst Matte Balm in Shameless

BTW these olive BDG boots were at absolute STEAL from Urban Outfitters!  I think the original retail price was $79.99, and the sale tag read $29.99.  Imagine my surprise when the cashier rung me threw and they were actually $19.99!!  Don't you love it when that happens though??

And last, but certainly not least, say hi to the man behind the lens.  Can you tell the Boyf loves Club Monaco?

What have some of your favourite sweaters been this Fall?? 

BTW: I'm excited to announce that I am now part of the Fashion Magazine Style Panel!  Yay!  Look forward to frequent Style Panel advice! ;)
