A Hazy Shade of Winter

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.

Back in Black

When I saw this Free People top at Nordstrom, I knew I had to have it and I prayed it fit me well. To start, it’s black, allowing my (debatable) unhealthy obsession with all things black continue. It is also right on trend with side slits, flared arms and the sexiest (if I may say so myself) criss cross across the chest. I immediately checked the tag for fabric details and was elated when I saw no animal fabrics were used. WIN!  

When a sweater catches my eye, it’s extremely important to me that it hugs my curves properly. I have a very curvy figure, so finding clothes that accentuate my curves, without flaunting them too much is sometimes somewhat of a challenge. It’s that exact reason that I can never allow myself to fully fall in love with a piece of clothing before trying it on. 

Fall For Neutrals

Fall is very clearly sweater weather. I love it! Big, baggy, comfy sweaters to keep you warm… I mean, how much better does fashion get? Every year, I make myself a promise to invest in some more colourful clothing options, and every year, I fail for the most part. No matter what I do, I usually find myself running towards the neutral sections, and there’s good reason why: you can never go wrong with neutrals. Classic for every occasion. They go with everything and well, we all know black is slimming.

That’s why this is one of my go-to fall outfits.  These vegan suede leggings from Aritzia are surprisingly so comfortable! You’d expect them to be rigid and tight, but no, they stretch so well and hug everything in all the right places. They pull you in where needed, but also allow you to breathe. I don’t think I’ll be taking them off this season!
