Big Cats (and The Art of Layering)

I’ve always insisted my wardrobe is more Californian than Vancouverite, but I might be in over my head because dressing for fall isn’t so bad.. One simply needs to master the Art of Layering: layers are nice and cozy, but they are disgusting when you become a sweltering, hot mess after moving too much in them. Keywords: balance, and sweltering.

[Faux] fur scarf — Urbanoutfitters; canvas military jacket — Salvation Army; leopard print pants — OBEY; combat boots — vintage Aldo

One of my fav outfits because the pants are breezy and comfy, and everything was very cheap.. The scarf $10, pants $5, coat $3.99, and the boots were free, because to me, “vintage” is synonymous with “stolen from my mother’s closet.”

My goal this year (and for the rest of my life) is to stop complaining about Vancouver weather because everyone in this city is so fixated on the weather, despite the fact that Vancouver is KNOWN to be rainy! And I bet you anything complaining makes you ugly.

So let the whining end, and the appreciating begin!

HOLY SWEATERS

Oversized sweater — Free People; denim shorts — Forever 21; purse — vintage Gucci; sandals — Nordstrom Rack

I looove the structure of this sweater (loose and hanging in all the right places) but it’s far too hole-y to wear in any season other than the summer. I don’t think I own anymore long-sleeved shirts (though, I am planning to make this DIY one from a pair of leggings http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqE_l872dLU), and even if I did, I imagine it to be crazy uncomfy underneath that sweater..

Y’all can imagine what it feels like on a windy day in this one..

Summer in Vancouver is like some sort of mean joke.. it’ll be pissing rain in the morning, sun’s a-blazing after lunch, and torrential downpour after work. Not even the least bit clever, people were donning June as June-uary (ha ha, get it… because it’s cold as fuck in January.)

But above all, if you’re living in Vancouver in general, y’all will be needing pants that fit like a glove and a cute purse.
