I am guilty of not putting effort to get dressed better in winter. I mean, it’s always cold outside and all I want to do is cuddle in my pajama indoors.

Here are my thoughts on how to dress casually for winter this year:
Toronto can be super cold in winter! But the days it’s not cold, I try to make the most use of my outfits.

I call it a leather jacket fancy. Notice in the last second last photo, I wore my fav camel coat to cover myself from the cold later on. Check out the full look below:
I have recently been getting addicted to all types of nude or neutral colors. It’s not that I don’t have enough, my closet already had a range of beige colors but I am always taking in inspiration from all over and beige seems to be getting to me. In this post, I captured all shades of neutrals. From light brown to camel hues to dark chocolate brown, I wanted to add it all in. Here is the final look! Some might be wondering if this is enough for cold winter in Toronto, I would say no. But it is suitable for ordinary snow day without wind or freezing point. Hope you guys like the look! I have also listed the product shop prices below 🙂

No matter what weather, a stylish cardigan can always make a statement. I always leave the house wearing a cardigan as I feel my look is incomplete without it. September/October has both been warm and cold so it is still OK to wear light cardigans. One of my go-to looks includes jeans with a tee and a statement cardigan to finalize the look. See below my 3 trendy cardigan looks:
I am always in search of a different type of blouse. As much as I enjoy wearing blouses with frills and layers, I was searching for a blouse that had a fall feel to it. Luckily, I came across this on Uniqlo (you can tell how obsessed I am with their collection) and this found drape mock neck blouse. It definitely is different and so, I matched it with my pleated skirt. The full look is as below.
Honestly guys, there is something about transitioning seasons that gets me hooked on to specific colors. As soon as it gets chilly, I get alerted telling me to dress in dark colors.

I always love a good pair of jeans but what I love more is when I pair jean on jeans. I am just getting back to my pre-pregnancy body but I still have a long way to go. I am currently breastfeeding which makes it hard for me to start gym. I have this big chunk of belly fat that I want to get rid of so I can start wearing my jeans again. Unfortunately, the only pair of jeans that fit me currently is my boyfriend jeans. So I am always pairing these jeans with all types of tops and there is no better pair to match it with than its very own jean top.
