OOTD - Casual Winter Weekend Wear


As much as I enjoy my faux furs and costume dress, sometimes you just crave casual - especially on the weekends. I'm having a newfound love affair with boyfriend jeans, and love their versatility and how uniquely feminine they become when paired with some heels.  Thankfully Saturday was mild enough that a thick knit sweater (with some layers underneath) and a cozy scarf could substitute a jacket. I tend to get lazy with my wardrobe in the winter, so boyfriend jeans are a great alternative to black leggings and boots - plus it gives a breath of fresh air with a lighter colour palette.

Sweater - Forever 21, Scarf - Aldo, Shoes - Marshalls, Tote - Madewell





Blogger Tip: I was in a bit of a funk on Saturday and just wasn't feeling how my face was turning out in the photos - we've all been there! Turning slightly away from the camera is how this sometimes camera-shy gal can handle having photos taken so often. Give this a try if you're struggling to get into outfit photos, or let me know if this happens to you as well!


As much fun as it is to dress up, sometimes going casual is just what the doctor ordered. Are you in favour of the boyfriend jean and heels in the cold weather? How do you break out of your leggings routine in the winter? Let me know!

  1. I tend to get stuck in a black pants and boots combo during colder months! I definitely need to break out of it. You look so fresh and fab!

    1. You do such a great job of switching it up from the typical all-black palette Gabriella! It feels so refreshing to get out of the leggings, I need to do it more often LOL

  3. I'm definitely camera shy most of the time. I much prefer being behind the lens :)

    1. Somedays it's there - and some days my face just isn't working LOL! The look-down pose is definitely a go-to for me when struggling to get an outfit shoot out.

  4. You'd never know by looking at your blog that you're camera shy! You hid it well :)

    I love wearing boyfriend jeans year round too. Lighter, cozy sweaters are such a nice change at this time of year!

  8. Great post! I used to own so many pairs of boyfriend jeans, I must buy some more. I have to admit that I love blogging but I'm always so nervous taking photos outside, it often shows in my face, great tip about turning sideways :)
