OOTD - Mustard Beanie + Hunter Boots


Well, I hate to be the one to break the bad news but it looks as though Winter has arrived - and isn't going anywhere anytime soon.  I've made my peace with the early arrival of snow and below-frezing temperatures in Toronto and am now trying to strategize on how to make it through another Winter - without living in a parka 24/7.  I've found that heavy knits are my friend; for example, this heavy knitted sweater holds up incredibly well in the frigid temperatures - so much so that it actually becomes too warm to wear indoors for an extended period of time!  Add a thick black tight, a pair of black Hunter Wellingtons and a mustard toque (that's Canadian for beanie) and I'm ready for the early onset of Winter.  Read on for additional photos and outfit details.




Sweater - Forever 21 (similar), Skirt - Aritzia
Boots - Hunter, Beanie - Target

I know, I know - colder temperatures should mean that it's time to put the skirts in storage but this Noob just can't seem to part with them!  I remedy my love for short skater skirts in the winter by having a stock of thick black tights to wear underneath them - bonus if they're fleece lined keeping your stems nice and cozy.


How are you dressing for the beginning of Winter?

    1. Sounds like a ridiculously cute school uniform! I was always envious of kids who were able to wear uniforms to school - strange I know!

  3. Love this! I'm also a fan of wearing my short skirts in winter with fleece-lined tights. They're the best when it's absolutely frigid outside!

    1. I totally agree, Kimi. Plus, I find them way warmer than jeggings or skinny jeans!
