Fall Layers

Until the official kick-off of Winter weather on December 21st, we've still got 10 days of what is left of Fall. Funny though, as it seems the cold winter started a couple weeks ago in Toronto, and we've had to dress accordingly.  Everyone knows that colder weather is difficult to dress for.  How can one still manage to look cute whilst bundled under layers of warmth?  Balance.  It's all about balance.  My philosophy? If you're bundling up to look top-heavy, keep your shape by sticking with skinny bottom. Take a look at a few ways I've been layering up and maintaining the cuteness (....I think?).

Graphic Tee & Ankle Boots

I would say this is the perfect combo for a "normal" Fall day.  And by "normal" I mean a hint of chill in the air, and crunchy leaves to-and-fro.

Cropped Sweatpants

Now, for much colder Fall weather, the above and following combinations have been very appropriate.  Not to mention, I have been absolutely obsessed with, not only thick chunky scarves, but CROCHETING. Omigaaaawd.  I have literally become a crazy obsessed crochet-master in the past couple of months, and I'm proud to say I made these very scarves that are featured in this post *dusts off shoulder* :).  Also, I need to make a point of this: sweatpants are not okay.  But cropped sweats paired with anything but sneakers? Chic.

The Oversized Jacket

Call me obsessed, but I have been  loving the oversized coat thanks to ZARA.  I found this cheaper alternative on Tobi.  Paired with a skinny bottom, I promise you won't look like a hobo.

All Black & Leather Leggings

There are a lot of things that I tend to get OBSESSED with.  But there are also the things that I am in LOVE with.  Timeless and classic things, such as the black.  If something comes in a slew of colours and black is an option -- I'm there. I think my dedicated Pinterest board is proof enough.

Combat Boots

As I've already expressed, I have a serious soft spot for grunge style this season.  Army green and combat boots are an absolute must.  And of course the necessary dark hued layers of warmth.
