Style Bee - In and Out

In and Out


Style Bee - In and Out


I’ve been wearing this outfit at least once every week for a couple months now and it’s about as casu-chic as it gets. I just can’t get cozy enough these days! This mohair cardigan is so warm yet so soft I’m baffled by the texture every time I wear it. So yeah, it’s super comfy and makes life awesome but at this point in Canadian ‘fall’ it’s not warm enough for outside use. That’s why I’m calling it the ‘inside’ portion of todays style post. I thought I’d share a few ways I like to transition layers from being in my cozy office to being out on a cold as hell day. Here’s a quick step-by-step process for indoor layering:

  • Wear your favourite skinny black denim.
  • Toss on a super soft t-shirt.
  • Top that with a super warm, oversized sweater.
  • *optional* Wear a pair of spring flats around to make you feel less depressed about the truth awaiting outside.

I’ve said it too many times already but I really think that if you’re dressed ‘well’ for the weather, it never seems that bad. Of course there are plenty of days ahead that will prove that theory wrong and demand down filled parkas and gigantic winter boots, but until then it’s just plain cold and blah so I’m being creative and having fun with my ‘outdoor’ winter style. Here’s a few steps that continue where we left off above and takes layering to an outdoor level:

  • Switch those flats for boots, time to get real (if you haven’t already)
  • Pile on a perfect oversized cocoon style coat. It’s gotta go over that big sweater!
  • Wrap some pattern around your neck and toss on a touque.
  • Grab your trusty black bag and head on your warm but chic way!

This is the first shoot I did inside my soon to be completely finished studio! It was so fun to test out the space and try out some indoor shooting but there is a lot to improve on so bear with me while I hone in on my photography skills. What do you think about this style of ‘style’ post? I’m thinking it will be great throughout the winter months but I’d love your initial thoughts too.

Leave me a comment here!

    Saw this cardi on your insta and had to scroll back to see more! It looks like my new best friend x

    Aren’t those jeans amazing? My stomach isn’t flat enough for the high rise, but I have the mid-rise version and I love them! I also agree with Shannon – I’d love to do this sort of thing, but I am anything but photogenic! Haha. These pictures look great. Now I want my own studio! (To do what with, who cares? – in the middle of a quarter life crisis trying to figure out a new creative path to pursue!)

      Amie, you’re too hard on yourself! I’m sure you’re much more photogenic than you think! We’re our own worst critic. Having a studio (albeit a tiny one) is so much fun and filled with endless possibilities! Maybe you just need to test out some creative waters and your passion will click. Thanks for reading love! xo

    Oh my gosh, these photos are gorgeous & you are gorgeous!
    Seriously such a style inspiration 🙂

    Can’t wait to see what else the new studio brings!

    I give you so much credit for doing more of these style posts lately! I am the most bashful person ever in front of the camera, and there’s no way I could ever do what you do! On Thanksgiving, Nick and I tried to take a non-selfie-looking couple selfie (and some solo shots of each of us), and every time it was just me in front of the camera/we tried to look serious and/or indifferent, I just got fidgety, stiff, and beyond awkward. Cue the nervous laughter… The only time I could get a half decent shot was if I gave up and just let the awkward goofiness show. You’ve totally nailed the whole “Camera? What camera? I just always look this contemplative” look, haha.

    Also, what on earth is a “touque”?! A hat? Haha! I had to read that bit a couple times before I realized you never actually mentioned hat/beanie/etc. Is that a Canadian term? Every now and then I’ll notice you use a word I have zero idea about, and then I remember you don’t actually live in the US too (*facepalm*).

    • Shannon Buckley says:

      Oh, I forgot to add–that sweater is seriously the mecca of all gray sweaters! Absolutely dying over it. I guess it’s a good thing my size is sold out because otherwise my wallet would be cursing me right now! That, and I’ve already promised myself I’m getting the gray chunky knit cardigan from Everlane once it’s back in stock (ha, surprised? Never!). Who needs 10 gray sweaters? Oh right, me!

    • Lee the Bee says:

      Shannon, you’re amazing! Haha Trust me there are a shocking amount of horrible outtakes for every nonchalant one.

      Hahaha I know I can’t always keep my Canadianisms contained! But you figured it out 😉 Toque = beanie.

      This sweater has been a total game changer. SO DAMN COZY! Oh man, the chunky knits from Everlane are to die for. I have promised myself all of them! xo

    Looking good!
    Keep it up! The studio will help you master those photo skills!
    Loving that grey sweater!!
