Winter Essentials

There have been a few pieces at the top of my winter shopping list this year. With the infamous “Godzilla El Niño” here on the West Coast, we have had nothing but rain and wind!

This weather has made me want to bundle up more than ever (and sip white chocolate by the fireplace, mm!).

A camel-coloured wrap coat has been at the top of my list for a few months now. It is a perfect change from typical black, whilst remaining equally stylish and practical. This piece is worth investing in; you can wear it over dresses or jeans and it works in Fall and Winter.

In my winter round-up, I have included some adorable fur accessory finds. From fur pompom topped toques, to warm ear muffs (7$) and fur snoods (50% off), these accessories take the place this season of that well-loved fur vest – all faux of course! This fur snood can pair beautifully with a cozy coat, or it can add a touch of glam to a party dress. How cute are these furry ear muffs? It’s like having two little hugs on your ears!

With it being so wet, I have been hunting tirelessly for a cute pair of bright wellies to keep my toes dry and my mood bright. These gorgeous yellow Hunters  (red style) fit my search perfectly! It was a battle between red and yellow, but this sunny yellow shade couldn’t keep me away. This way I will always have the sunshine with me-even on the rainiest days (cheesy, I know).

Black puffer coats are everywhere this season and there are so many style variations from long to short, fur-hooded to athletic, what isn’t to love? Try to shop this style for your body shape. For example, if you are petite, opt for a shorter length-this coat in a long style will look like a black puffy monster ate your body.

I am so obsessed with how prominent jewel tones are this season. They’re popping up in everything from dresses to sweaters to jewelry. Shades of emerald and rich purples have been adding a gorgeous edge to the typical wintery darks.

Leather leggings. Now, you probably have a pair already but if you don’t, put your shoes and coat on and haul your booty to the nearest department store (or Aritzia)! I love how comfy vegan leather leggings are and equally stylish. These pair well with a blouse for a night out or a sweater for running errands. I have gotten so much use out of mine already I have been considering investing in a second pair!

This Michael Kors satchel is what dreams are made of. It’s well structured and the handles allow it to be used as a small tote, or attached the adjustable strap to wear it as a cross-body or shoulder bag. The stud detailing makes it extra unique and very on-trend. I opted for a plain black colour simply because I don’t have any sort of black cross body (call me crazy). However, there are other colours available. The MK site does not have all of these colours, so hunt around!

Lastly, this white cable-knit sweater has been my style staple lately. I layer it with blanket scarves and boots for the coziest look. I am in love with how warm it keeps me.

Happy Winter shopping!



EDIT: Gave up on finding yellow (Hunter does not make this colour any more). Convinced myself I liked red equally as much and bought them instead.
