Winter is here!
Don't let the exclamation mark fool you, I'm dreading the winter months (which seem to last forever here) and winter fashion gives me all kinds of struggles.

I want to look cute, don't get me wrong, but the majority of the 'styles' I see are just not freaking practical. I live in Canada. We get snow. We get A LOT of snow. I'm not going out and about in cute flats. Those days are gone.

Pass the wool socks, down vests and waterproof footwear.

Alright, so here's my first winter go-to style!!! (you can check out my other go-to oufits HERE) I will tell you why I love it below.

tunic sweater + black skinnies + vest + boots = cool, cozy mom on the run

winter sweater and black jeans

Christmas sweater, 27 CAD / Black vest, 53 CAD / 7 For All Mankind black jeans, 405 CAD / Wigwam socks, 19 CAD / SOREL rubber boots, 150 CAD / Topshop lips makeup, 19 CAD / Essie nail polish, 11 CAD

This is the PERFECT winter outfit for a number of reasons:

  1. It's cute and comfy. TIP: you can sub the skinnies for leggings IF your sweater is long enough (read: covers your butt).
  2. It can be dressed up OR down. To dress up: use a fur vest, throw on some flashy accessories, red lips/nails  and carry a cute bag.  To dress down: use a puffer vest and keep the accessories minimal. This is one of those perfect outfits, with a quick accessory change, you could wear from Christmas dinner to a walk to the (freezing cold) park to grocery shopping with the kiddos (cause that's my life).
  3. It's practical. Seriously, if I were to go outside in flats right now my feet would freeze and I'd get a soaker. Nobody likes a soaker. NObody.
  4. The boots. I'm OBSESSED with the boots. I need them. I WILL have them. 
Wool socks tip: if you're having a hard time finding a pair, head to the men's section where wool socks are a plenty! You're welcome!

Okay friends, what are you excited to wear this winter?
