The season of layering is upon us, and while many attempt the trend few do so properly. The trick? Curating the perfect mix of textures, fabrics, and colours, without allowing the clothes to swallow you whole. Here I've done so by pairing a heavily layered mid-section with super skinny jeans - the combination ensures that I remain shapely, while still enabling me the comfort and warmth of my layers. My favourite piece from this look is the recently purchased Zara 'Suede' Waistcoat, which is destined to become a staple in my closet for layered looks. It's been in my possession for a mere week now and already I've worn it three of the seven days. I love it's versatility within my current wardrobe -  whether paired atop a pair of skinny jeans, a dress, or even joggers it adds an instant dose of chic.

I wore this look while strolling around downtown Burlington the other day with my brother and his girlfriend. It's been such a beautiful week in the GTA that it seemed shameful not to get outside and enjoy the sun. After a quick scan of one of my favourite downtown shops, Joelle's, I dragged the gang to Kelly's Bake Shop to get myself a sweet fix before heading home to hibernate once again.
