Winter Wear


jacket - Noize from Simons, sweater - Joe Fresh, jeans - Joe's, boots - Sorel, toque - LOST

The temperature in Edmonton is supposed to drop to -41 with the windchill this week and when it gets this cold, I don't want to wear anything but my warm parka and Sorel snow boots! I have to admit I get so jealous when I look at other blogger's sites, I'm talking about bloggers who live somewhere warm like California or Florida (or even Vancouver!) where it's so much easier for them to take outfit photos outside because there's no ice or snow on the ground they have to plow through and they don't have to worry about getting frostbite on their faces while getting their pictures snapped. (Or falling on their ass from slipping on black ice.) That being said, I believe warmth doesn't have to trump style when dressing for deepfreeze temps, you just have to be willing to get creative with your outfits. There are plenty of cute snow boots out there and cute (and warm) jackets to choose from, like this one I purchased at Simons in West Edmonton Mall. I also picked up some cozy sweaters from Joe Fresh that are on sale right now because they're bringing in their spring stock, but our "spring" doesn't arrive until April so I take full advantage of all the "end-of-winter" sales ; ). Add a toque, perhaps a scarf and some mitts and you're ready to go!

I am sort of dreading this week and the cold. But you look super cute in all your winter wear (I usually wind up looking like a hobo with an obscene amount of layers on).

You make freezing temperatures and numb limbs look good, girl! And that's saying something... xx

Petite Adventures said...

Oh dear -38, that's horrible. We had temperatures like that last week and it was horrible. I'm so ready for summer! Although, if you have to endure winter at least you get to wear cute pieces like that sweater. The colour is awesome!

You do cold weather style really well and those boots are gorgeous, very warm and stylish. You are right cold weather doesn't necessarily mean you have to sacrifice style which you have clearly shown here with your outfit, fab!

I found your blog through the feature on Petite Adventures and am loving it, I am now following you. I especially like that we are the same age, makes it easier to relate to you and your style.

Have a fab weekend :)
