Faux Fix

So winter has finally arrived where I live. (It was two months late which was just fine with me!) We got a big dump of snow on the weekend and it looks like it's here to stay. Luckily I have my faux fur coat to keep me warm during the cold and brutal winter we experience here in Alberta! You don't know cold until you've experienced it in Canada. Am I right Canadians?? A (faux) fur coat is essential to any girl's wardrobe, especially if you live in a chilly climate. It can take you from drab to fab in an instant and gives your outfit a glamorous touch. And it doesn't have to be expensive either. I got mine last year from H & M for $50.00 on sale and it will forever be a staple in my wardrobe. Just like it will be forever cold in Canada ; ). Might as well make the best of it!

I'm so sad that it snowed! I thought for sure we were getting off easy this year... *tear* But I guess being able to bust out faux fur without getting strange looks is our silver lining, right?

Ps- YOU LOOK AMAZING IN THESE PICS!!! Sorry for the all caps, I just got a little too excited there for a minute ;)

-37?!?! Oh em gee. It's 8 here, which converts to -14C. I don't approve of any of these temperatures.

I do, however, approve of your outfit. Especially that gorgeous coat. $50 is a steal. I wish there was an H&M closer to my house.

Love love LOVE that dress! This is my first Canadian winter - I'm in Toronto so it's not bad at all compared to where I could be experiencing it, but it's pretty damn cold for me!!! x

Lovely coat. And the outfit under it is equally nice. Pretty necklace.
