Happy New Year! I'm welcoming 2015 in with a couple of winter staples – the parka and the felt hat. While I'm wearing staples, the new year is all about... well, the new, so I also decided to wear a few pieces that haven't been getting much attention in my closet for an easy, laid back look.

Boyfriend jeans are one of those trends I loved, but just fail at styling. They make me look squat, and I favour them with daintier, more feminine pieces. In other words, I haven't figured out how to wear them when it's cold and all I want to do is layer up. So I took to my closet and made a mess trying things on. Initially I was worried wearing this sweatshirt would make the silhouette too boxy, given that the Josefinas are way to big for me (I seriously recommend sizing down in these if you aren't able to try them on), but once I paired it with slim wedge boots, everything seemed to work. Who cares if I look lame once I get home and take my boots off. A synched waist on the parka also helps define the silhouette and keep everything from looking dowdy. Add my new favourite hat, and we're good to go!

Accessories: Jennifer Meyer ring, Spring hat (similar here)

  4. I love how a good floppy hat can make such a difference in my outfit. It really takes something kind of basic and turns it into a much more stylish situation. Great accessories!
