My latest favourite layering trick: leather jackets under a cozy sweater jacket or wool coat. Love the play on texture, plus if you’re anything like me i.e. perpetually freezing, it provides some extra (and much-needed) warmth! Wore this yesterday during a very brief break from craziness at Granville Island…to describe this past weekend as overwhelming would be a huge understatement! 
From taking part in a style-off at Old Navy‘s new Vancouver location alongside my friends Jen and Alicia Friday night to a full day of shooting for Glitter Guide with Jen and Erin Saturday (followed by drinks with old friends Saturday night) to a full day of catching up on work Sunday, I barely had any rest at all. I can’t really complain though…as busy as it was, the weekend was also amazing. Check out my Instagram feed to see snaps! 
I’m hoping I can just take this week to get back to basics (hitting the gym, eating normally, getting more than five hours of sleep) so that I can rest up and start getting into Christmas-mode. Whether or not you’re the type that likes to start celebrating early or not (I know I am!) it is officially just over a month away! We’re busy getting our space Christmas-fied, can’t wait to share some decor snaps soon!
Hope you all had a slightly more restful weekend – we all need as much rest as possible before the inevitably crazy holiday season!

    Love your Free People sweater coat!! They happen to be one of my fave brands with their often "boho/hippie" vibe, but your more basic choice here is perfect for layering over many kinds of looks, isn't it?!

    I'm impressed that you can do bare legs in winter, even with boots!

    I love that jacket! And it is crazy to think that I never thought to wear a dress as a skirt until blogging–weird! This dress as a skirt is a great fall piece!
