Making Lemonade


American Apparel sweater | Gap skirt (similar) | Hue tights (similar) | Steve Madden boots (similar)
Joe Fresh necklace | Turquoise & Caicos Essie nails






I think my favourite thing about winter this season has been the pairing of heavy, bulky sweaters with light, summery skirts and dresses. There's something about the contrast of it that I just cannot help but love. It's the same kind of love that I have for a masculine leather coat paired with a soft lace top, or a strong boyfriend blazer paired with a light champagne floral. The other obvious draw to this trend comes from the fact that my closet grows exponentially when I don't have to pack away my summer dresses AND that I get to keep extra warm with all the big sweaters.

Lucky for me I live in Canada and I've got a bunch more months of bulky sweaters and pretty dresses on my horizon.

  10. You look pretty.   I actually wish I had a lot more comfy sweaters like yours, b/c I love that juxtaposition, too.  Also the word "juxtaposition."  It's a winner.

  12. I love the contrast of the sweater & the frilly skirt too. It's fun and girly and cozy all at once. You look lovely.

  13. That is lucky.  I'm already having to break out the T-shirts and leave the tights in the drawer.  I don't feel like I got enough sweater weather. Oh well, I'll hold out as long as possible. I love contrasting textures and styles :)

  14. I love those extra polar opposites and how well they work together.  And the fact that you never have to 'pack away' pieces of your wardrobe is always a plus.

  20. oh my goodness. we seriously are the creepiest... i'm kind of in love with the word "juxtaposition" to the point where I monitor how much I use it so that nobody will learn my secret. Head to american apparel so you can juxtapostize with the best of us

  22. ooo man, I must say I am reeeeeeally jealous of your weather. I would give up my sweaters in a second if it would mean a new climate
