This past weekend Dave and I were in Victoria visitings friends and family. It was a much needed break from the craziness that has been November so far. I thought once summer ended and it slowed down on the west coast I would slow down, but that is far from the truth. When we were back home we managed to squeeze in a few visits with friends and I was able to spend time with family, which was really needed. On Saturday I wore this recently purchased sweater dress from American Eagle with my Steve Madden Over the Knee suede boots that I bought last season but still adore. A simple and cozy dress was instantly elevated when I paired it with my boots. We had brunch at new The Ruby on Johnson, which I would highly recommend! Then we walked around the city taking it all in. As much as I love my life up on the West Coast I still crave the busyness of the city. We walked past some of my favourite little boutiques, more to come on that later this week! Now that it really feels like winter has come, what are you staying warm and cozy in?
