MY LITTLE WINTER WONDERLAND & TOQUE OBSESSION
Baby it’s COLD outside in Calgary this early January weekend. Try -25 degree celcius. But my hubby is back at work tomorrow and I have been working my butt off to design some new hats over the holidays. I was determined today so we bundled the boys into the car and went for a drive.
You don’t have to go to far to experience the full “Winter Wonderland” in Alberta this time of year. I feel so lucky to live in such a beautiful country. I also realize that as a Canadian, you have to invest in some warm winter wear! Here are a few of my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITES this season: from lipstick to boot cuffs to the token crochet toque from Harper’s Hats.
I’ve made it easy for you to shop these looks so just click on the links if you need, I mean, like what you see!
Pom-Pom Hat: My two new designs this holiday: The ADDILYN Toque in Navy and The COOPER Toque in cream. Both made with a warm acrylic/wool blend. I am all about the chunky crochet and big pom-poms right now.
Scarf: The Aerie Blanket Scarf If you don’t already own one, then take it from me, it is a great inexpensive accessory that can be worn with or without a coat or vest this season. Let me stress: I LOVE this scarf. And now that they have added some new colours, it looks like I will be owning another shortly.
Jeans : Mid-Rise Skinny Jeans from Express You will soon see that I have a big obsession with anything Express. I love how their clothes can still make a Mom feel dressed up and a little bit sexy!
Cardigan: Classic Long Cardigan from J. Crew The one I am wearing in the photo is now discontinued but here is a link to a very similar one. I love that it is a bit longer so it can be worn with jeans or tights.
Boots: Original Tall Hunter Rain Boots in matte black. If you are a Northern girl, then you must-have these boots. Probably in more than one colour!
Boot Cuffs: Hunter Boots Socks in Cream make your rain boots into winter boots.
Lipstick: Mac Cosmetics Lipstick in Viva Glam I A deep red that looks gorgeous on everyone. And ALL the proceeds sold from any Viva Glam Lipstick is donated to the MAC AIDS Fund.
Coat: Kensington Parka by Canada Goose I don’t know what I would do without this coat on days like this. The goose down is so warm and I love the long-thigh length, especially when sitting on my cold leather car seats! Another Canadian winter staple.
Well that’s it loves, time for a glass of wine and some Netflix. Hope you enjoyed my first “style” entry.
