Happy Friday everyone! I have mentioned before in a previous post how unpredictable Calgary's weather can be. Well, I wasn't lying, it is very true. It makes it so hard to figure out what to wear, and your closet is slowly over taken by hundreds of different types of tops, bottoms, jackets, and shoes! (It's not all a bad thing :P) What I mean by this is that, because the weather changes so quickly you need to prepared. So having a winter jacket on the ready with your spring jacket next to it, because one minute it can be snowing and the next the snow is melting and the patio's are open and suddenly it went from winter to spring.
I do have to say with this winter we were spoiled, it wasn't much of a winter at all. I got through most of it wearing this beautiful jacket from 27 Boutique (Which is a local boutique in Calgary located on 17th ave), or lots of sweaters with a leather jacket. About the coat I found at 27 Boutique, I couldn't get over the print and how warm it was, truly a great buy. When I was first trying it on I realized it was a small rather than an extra small (which is what I would have needed). But with today's trends the over-sized look is everywhere. I went with the bigger size, one: because I love the over-sized look, and two: I wanted to be able to wear chunky sweaters and layers underneath it.
Every winter I find myself buying sweater on top of sweater on top of sweaters. If you have been following me on Instagram you would see that I have an addiction to sweaters with details. This sweater from Banana Republic is a great example of that. I've worn this white sweater either on it's on or with layers underneath it, it has become one of my favorite sweaters in my closet. I have been able to wear it on more causal occasions or wearing it to work with a cute printed blouse underneath.
So here's the whole look. I paired the sweater and jacket with my favorite pair of ripped jeans, and nude suede ankle booties. I kept it simple for casual everyday kinda look.
