After a whirlwind week of jet lag, getting over the last of my lovely flu-cold hybrid and jetting to and back from Toronto for my eLUXE Connected Collection shoot and our launch party, I've only now had a chance to reflect on my incredible Euro trip and start poring over all my snaps from the trip. Last we left off, I was cruising around Amsterdam, bundled up to beat the cold snap of fall. Well, we're in much more warm territory now - Barcelona! Click through to see our first day exploring this beautiful city!

I was expecting a bit of jet lag once I landed back home in Vancouver from Europe last Friday, but I didn't anticipate getting completely knocked off my feet with an awful cold too. With the exception of one hot yoga class (had to nap afterwards...lame!) I've been mostly just lying around home or dragging myself to Granville Island for soup for the past few days. The only advantage to feeling under the weather when it's grey out? It's officially time to take advantage of sweater weather! Click through to see the full outfit and read my tips on layering knitwear, styling sweater dresses and beating the cold (or a cold, in my case) in style.
