OOTD - Winter Parka Casual Style


To say that the weather in Toronto has been cold would be an understatement.  With a bone-chilling wind, and temperatures dipping into the -40s I think that everyone in this part of the country is in survival mode.  As much as I am constantly trying to find a cold-weather alternative, sometimes a girl's just got to wear a parka.  Granted, I am a little more deconstructed than normal for these photos (no mittens, open jacket etc.) but I'm a firm believer of sacrifice for blog photos.  What would be the fun if everything was easy?  Read on for complete outfit details and more photos.





Parka - Aritzia, Jeans - Topshop, Shirt - Banana Republic
Beanie - Target, Bag - Phillip Lim


It was a bit of an adjustment to get used to a top-handle bag, but now I'm a full-fledge convert.  I love carrying this Pashli on the crook of my arm, and find myself rarely using the longer strap.



What's your cold weather go-to?

  1. I am now convinced mustard and oxblood are the perfect colour combo. How do you look so lovely in these frigid temps?!

  2. Haha totally! I giggled when reading this post as I feel the exact same way. If I were to keep warm, they would all be of my parka, snow boots, mittens, hat and a scarf up to my eyes (and I'd look like just about every other Torontonian walking down the street). lol. Love this look! And that bag - totally adore it. So beautiful.
