Well friends, winter is officially here! I have hoped and hoped that it would never come, but every year, a harsh dose of reality hits me: I live in Canada, winter is inevitable. Now don’t get me wrong – I LOVE living in Toronto. It’s such a vibrant city full of acceptance and culture. But when winter comes along and those temperatures drop, I do find myself wondering why I live in a city that hurts my face, literally. The air is so cold, it hurts. Nevertheless, this city is my home and I’m grateful to call it that, so I’ve just had to learn how to bundle up and keep warm when those colder months hit.
Which leads me to my next point; staying warm and staying fashionable in the colder months sometimes don’t go hand in hand. Most of the time, the jackets that are cute, won’t keep you warm and the ones that will, almost always are made of wool or down (yuck!!). Now I should be clear – these photos below were not taken in below freezing temps. While this jacket is extremely warm, I think anything below zero would need one a little more heavy duty – but that’s just my opinion.
