Christmas Fun in the Snow

There is snow on the ground, the Christmas tree is lit, and my kitchen smells of baked chocolate chip cookies! It feels as if this season, Christmas has gone on forever. I say that with happiness because this is one of my favourite holidays of the year!! With the holidays being so cheery, I like to make sure my outfits are right in line with the holiday theme!


Sweater Coat: Dex / Sweater: J.Crew Factory / Leggings: c/o Du North Designs Ltd. / Boots: L.L. Bean / Camp Socks: Roots

Today, I am sporting these super fun reindeer leggings! All of my fun printed leggings come from Du North Designs Ltd.a Canadian company based out of Alberta. I can always count on Du North to provide me cozy leggings to lounge around in (and for the holiday season…that’s exactly what I need!)

Cozy style is my go-to, especially when running errands, baking cookies and preparing for such a busy holiday such as Christmas. If I could have one pair of Christmas leggings for every single day of the month…I would. However, these are my favourite pair by far!!

I decided to keep a comfortable vibe with this look and pair the black fair isle pattern with my red buffalo check sweater. I got this sweater for my birthday after many, many hints to my Mom and Dad (hints that weren’t exactly needed, I found out later…) and it is the best sweater I own. Now, many people don’t seem to think you can wear a pattern on top of another pattern…I am not one of those people.

Pattern mixing is a trend that hasn’t gone out of style. At least, not in my closet. I love to mix and match, trying new combinations to see what I like best! These patterns go great together because they aren’t overwhelmingly big patterns. Buffalo check plaid is a chunky pattern. Fair aisle is more of a graphic pattern and really tight knit. There really is no rhyme or reason to pattern mixing…you just have to go with what you feel.

There are so many fun patterns to look through at Du North Designs! I suggest you take a look through their online catalog and find some for yourself – you definitely will not regret it (seriously, they are the most comfortable pairs of leggings I own).

Merry Christmas!

Nude Beaded Maxi w/ Du North Designs

Is anyone pumped that warmer weather is becoming more permanent these days? I feel like this cold season has dragged on forever and ever! Well it certainly wasn’t cold when I received this little number in the mail. Today, I am wearing the chiffon beaded maxi dress by Du North Designs. Maxi dresses are an essential piece for the summer season and this one is simply perfect!

They specialize in leggings, but also offer a wide variety of patterned pieces in tops, leggings, dresses and skirts!

Nude tones are really in right now and Du North is completely falling in line with that trend with this darker nude shade in the chiffon maxi. If you aren’t completely on board with the neutral tones, this is the perfect maxi for you, because it is not as neutral as it could be. It is a darker shade, and therefore is a lot more flattering with multiple skin tones.

Although I didn’t use any accessories to upstage the look, I paired the chiffon maxi with a marvelous floppy felt hat in a neutral beige from mark. by Avon and a blush pink handbag from Aldo in order to complete my super summery look!
