You guys know that I’m all about practicality. I hate wearing heels and would live in my jeans if I could. My personal style icons all embody that effortlessly cool look that is so sought after. You know, put-together but in a sort of blasé fashion (think Caroline de Maigret). Style should be simple, but not bland. This outfit is my go-to during the cooler months. It’s easy, it’s comfortable, and it’s cool. The one thing that I think elevates a simple outfit is a great hat. I’ve been lectured about hair-loss from the scalp’s inability to breathe due to how often I wear a hat – you’ll rarely see me without one. However, since I stand the risk of my hat flying off during the winter months, I decided to replace it with a beanie.

What’s your one go-to outfit hack?

    I adore your style! Effortless and cool! Unfortunately I love heels too much to give them up completely but I have more sneakers now than ever before!

    I totally agree with you. Simple doest have to be boring. You simply need the right accessory to top it off 😛

    Ok- I live in Ottawa and it’s absolute snow madness!!! Like we have 2 meters of it! I have lost my fashion mojo. I have so many shoes and booties patiently waiting for it all to melt… but who am I kidding, I’ll have to wait until at least April!

    Very chic outfit! Totally love the hat- actually been wanting one with that cute pom pom for awhile now 🙂

    This is such an effortlessly chic look. My go to outfit always tend to be quite minimal. I usually go for white shirt, jeans and some heels.

    PS. Was this outfit post taken at the UTSG campus?

    That beanie is such a cool piece! I never used to be someone who liked wearing hats, but that’s definitely been changing. You can’t go wrong with a rad hat, especially in the winter.

    It’s all about feeling comfortable in an outfit. I love to dress up and wear nice dresses and skirts with lovely tops but sometimes all I want is a cozy outfit and lately, I have been living in leggings and huge sweaters.

    You look lovely! I really like your hat! 🙂 xx
