Winter Layering with Over The Knee Boots (& a Visit to Ripley's Aquarium)

Jeans Zara, boots Aldo, jacket Danier old (similar jacket or check out Ebay), bag Chanel (vintage), scarf unknown, fur sole vintage

I hadn’t planned to post this outfit on the blog, only on Instagram, but I had too many beautiful pictures of my excursion to the Toronto Ripley’s Aquarium that I just had to share. If I had shared even half of them on my Instagram account, I’m pretty sure complaints would start coming in for posting too much, and inundating the Instagram feed hehehe. Anywhoo, I have a few pictures of the outfit too, so this still counts as an outfit post right?
Winter has finally arrived to Toronto (temperature wise, but still no snow) so it was quite cold to walk outside, but my layering skills have improved over the years so I can now tolerate the cold. I used to wear bulky sweaters or shirts to keep warm but have realized that it’s not the thickness that counts (I am talking about clothes, please get your mind out of the gutter!), but the number of layers and materials you wear. On this day I also used one of my summer scarfs as an extra layer but also to add to the interest of the outfit. It gives the outfit more dimension and therefore it’s more pleasing to the eye.
This gorgeous lined jacket is from Danier Leather but it’s at least 3 years old. It’s warm yet the leather is really soft and allows for ease of movement.
Over the knee boots are a perfect way to add layers to your bottom and keep you extra warm.
Oh by the way, before I forget, I just wanted to say I recommend to everyone to visit the Aquarium. It’s not just for kids. It’s very relaxing and before you know it, you will have spent 3-4 hours observing the life under the sea. I gotta say, it’s not the same as scuba diving, but if you never did that, this will come close. Enjoy!

Ciao!
