Check Vest + Ivory Cable knit

Spending the days reading books for English and rerunning friends really sounds like my kind of week! The weather has FINALLY backed off (thank goodness) so that I’m not wearing two pairs of socks, my parka and the thickest sweater I can find. I’m clearly not a Winter gal. Although the semester is now in full swing and assignment due dates are creeping up on me, I am weirdly stress-free and really…enjoying my homework (yes, I did say that!).

Details

Sweater: J.Crew (similar here) / Vest: Old Navy / Jeans: MAX Jeans / Boots: Thrifted (similar here and here)/ Necklace: Icing Jewelry / Tote: Indigo @ Chapters (similar here)

This check vest is one of my favourites! The day that Old Navy began selling quilted vests was a happy day. At the price they are at, you could get one in every style and colour you want (the best is check though)! Cable knit sweaters are my best friend this season. They keep you warm and you can never have too many (although my mother may beg to differ…) The design on this ivory knit from J.Crew is the ideal shade for Winter and goes really well with the red checks. I really scored with these OTK boots. I have such a problem finding OTK boots that fit my short, stumpy little legs. I have no idea what brand these boots are, but they are the perfect fit! Toting around all my textbooks is hard work, but this bag from Indigo @ Chapters makes life easier – the handles are strong and the bag is big (and that’s all I ask for…).

As we jump right back into the school season (and my final semester of university!!), I am working hard to get into a solid routine. I am loving the snow (sometimes) and the looks I can now bring to you so easily (thanks sis!), so hopefully this continues!

Cheers!
