stay warm. dress chic.
With the impending #snowpocalypse hitting Vancouver tonight, I thought now is better time than ever to share my thoughts around staying warm but dressing chic.
1. Get yourself a serious parka. Not some wool dress coat or leopard faux fur bomber, I'm talking sub-zero parka's. Canada Goose makes the best ones ($$$) but Aritzia also has great alternatives for about half the price.
2. Snow boots. I invested in a pair of Sorel's my first Winter in Canada and I haven't looked back. Yes they seem like a silly purchase to be only used a handful of times each year, but honestly it's worth it. Water-proof, snow-proof and warmth is the key.
3. Underlayers. Some great basic long-sleeve thermals are my pro-tip. Cashmere blend ones from Kit and Ace do the trick. That way you can wear a pull-over sweater on top, keep toasty and no one would be any wiser.
4. A beanie (even though I took mine off mid-shoot). I'm yet to find a beanie that compliments my head shape, so if you find any - please let me know!
5. Giant blanket scarf. The perfect transition to apres-ski mode when you're still freezing your butt off but don't want to wear your parka indoors.
These photos were taken by the lovely Sabrina from Street Scout.me on our girly day trip up to Joffre Lakes, BC. Seeing the frozen lake was well worth the red noses and numb hands. I'm so glad that Randa came up with the idea to visit Joffre and for Michelle for driving & the sweet 90s jams. Love those ladies.
