Winter Layering

Maison Scotch boucle vest (similar)  |  Aritzia dress (similar)  |  Mackage leather jacket
Rag & Bone booties  |  Celine bag  |  J.Crew necklace 

When you live somewhere as cold as Chicago, learning how to layer effectively is imperative.  I recently went shopping at one of my favorite stores, Aritzia with some friends.  To our surprise, the manager set up champagne, macarons and best of all, a huge rack full of clothes she had pulled for us.  
I don’t know if I would have ever tried on this very fitted midi sweater dress or this boucle vest, had they not been on that rack but I’m glad they were.  It’s nice when I try something on that I don’t think I’ll like or can pull off and end up loving it.  I’m really digging all the textures in this look.  I also took this vest to Vegas and wore it every single day.  Such a great layering piece!

  5. speaking of DIY i’m actually still waiting for your tutorial on your celine shirt? i know you said it wasn’t the best but id still love to see it =)

  6. Love it! So well put together! I’ve been really digging Maison Scotch lately. Have you been to their new boutique on Damen, Scotch & Soda? Nick and I have been stopping in there lately and really great stuff for guys too!

  7. Aritzia is my favourite store too; most of my wardrobe is from there! I actually just got a similar Wilfred Free dress (but it’s v-neck) that I’ve been wearing with a vest. Such a fun look!
