touch of faux fur


THERES NOTHING I love more than layering when it gets cold outside. The hardest part? Layering without looking like I gained 15 pounds overnight. Maybe it's a short-girl thing, but whenever I wear a jacket on top of a sweater on top of a long sleeve on top of a tee, complete with maybe a vest or a scarf or a hat (or all of the above) I feel like a total eskimo. Which is why this faux fur vest that I purchased last year barely ever gets worn. But I decided to challenge myself, and I think I found the trick: Layering items that are cropped and tailored (like this fab Jacob jersey jacket) with varying lengths and different colours add a little dimension, producing a non-bulky look. With a skinny jean and my favourite Aldo nude heels (instant leg-lengtheners) I felt pretty confident in this layered look! 

What is your method for layering in the colder months? Enjoy your Thursday everyone!

  7. I agree, I always feel bulky with layering pieces. You don't look like an eskimo at all! Just cute and cozy!
