Hello from Toronto! If you’ve been following along on my instagram, you know that I have been in Toronto since Wednesday night for a press trip with Nespresso. It has been a great trip – but man oh man I forgot how cold Toronto really is! Us west-coasters are terrible Canadians when it comes to the cold weather haha.
Luckily, everything I packed is cozy and warm… and festive! I head back to Vancouver today, but before I do I wanted to share this casual holiday outfit with you.
pom-pom toque/beanie // red knit sweater // jeans // Gucci belt // OTK Boots
I’ll be sharing a lot of fancier holiday outfits here on LLB (work wear, holiday party dresses, etc.) but I wanted to make sure I shared at least one casual holiday outfit as well, since so many of us have casual Christmas events coming up. Whether you’re wandering around a Christmas Market, grabbing brunch, or doing some holiday shopping this outfit will have you feeling cozy and festive.
My red knit sweater is is 40% off right now, so it’s a perfect way to treat yourself before the holidays without going overboard. It also comes in green which would make an equally fun casual holiday outfit!
My red toque is available in 3 colors and is one of my favorite winter finds so far this year. It’s lined with fleece making it way more comfortable (less itchy) than a typical knit toque, and I love the oversize faux fur pom pom. It’s under $20!
If you’re looking for a casual holiday outfit, you really can’t go wrong with this look or this outfit formula in general: a knit sweater, coordinating toque, skinny jeans and over the knee boots.
I hope you’re all having a great start to your holiday season! I’m looking forward to getting started on my Christmas decorating this weekend. Anyone else getting started this weekend? I also haven’t started my Christmas shopping at all, so really need to get going on that as well! If you missed it, I’ve updated my “Gifts that Give Back: Ethical Holiday Gift Guide” – check that out for some great gift ideas!

Thanks babe! And haha I know, it’s definitely nice to not be cold all the time haha!
Such a fun, festive outfit! And I love the background too – adorable!
Aw thanks Em!! Happy (early) holidays!! <3
This is definitely my kind of Christmas outfit! I usually like to have a festive color on but I donated my red and black sweater. Might start looking for something to replace it!
Aw thank you!
And that’s nice that you donated your old one! Definitely look for something fun this year, sounds like it’s well deserved!
Not only is this outfit cute, but it looks comfortable too! I’m all for comfortable style during the holidays!
It’s super comfy! I love having a beanie on to stay warm (I’m permanently cold lol)
I LOVE the red beanie! It’s so festive and fun!
Aw a little winter Christmas wonderland! Adorable festive look lady!
