I call it the black coat syndrome. Everyone that lives in a city with a colder climate can attest to it; once the temperature starts to drop, out come the coats - and those coats are typically black. I have definitely fallen victim to this dark phenomenon as I'm greeted by a sea of black when I open up our coat closet. Vowing to change up routine this winter, I managed to scoop up this light grey cocoon coat at the Aritzia boxing day sale. I absolutely love the oversized, boxy fit of this wool coat and it's a welcome addition to my collection of black winter coats. Paired with an array of grey knits and some black leather boots and accesories and I'm ready to take on old man winter - sans black coat.

I've been really into rings lately, and these Pandora rings that Brian gave me for Christmas are absolute perfection! I love the delicate nature of the stacking rings, and the silver rings are absolutely beautiful in person.
Winter may be in full swing, but I'm happy that I've found my alternative to the black coat. Do you gravitate towards darker shades in the winter? Let me know!
