Clocks have gone back and temps have dropped, the only thing I’m impressed with is the extra hour of sleep. We’ve reached temperatures where we now have to wear legit coats. It’s tough living in a cold city and trying to be trendy and look warm and cute, because that I never am. Rudolph was made fun of for his red nose; I’m still waiting for my acceptance.
I really hope that one day I can either afford to move where it’s always above 25 degrees, or just jet-set for most of the winter months; a girl can dream! I mean, don’t get me wrong, I’m Canadian I love snow and winter activities, but after christmas I’m way over it (snow has probably not even fallen by then). I’m being a tad sour and negative I apologize, but sorry not sorry, Winter is not my fave season. A warm to cool Fall and then right to Spring/Summer is where my head is at.
So since it always snaps to an ice kingdom, I decided this would be the year I put some $$ into a couple of “in-between” coats. The in-between period isn’t very long so I didn’t think spending on designer duds is a good financial decision. I went ahead and bought this vintage number while out in Kensington Market when the fall was still thankfully too warm to wear it. I’m really glad my friend convinced me to buy because it’s been getting a lot more love than I thought it would. WIN! I then went and purchased an over-sized red menswear inspired coat while on a thrift haul (coming soon to a blog post near you), and then grabbing a slightly oversized but more put together black coat from Forever 21 that I really like because it has texture, and we all know I’m into textured pieces lately. I’m hoping these will stay with me for the next few years as my essentials. Fingers crossed!
Oh, and mustard is the new black.
