I thrifted this coat from Makenew this past Winter, and I am loving it! I was actually in the market for a camel colored coat, but couldn’t find the right “one” until I walked into Anna’s shop one evening and spotted this beauty! It’s was slightly oversized (just the way I liked!) and the perfect length, PLUS I didn’t pay an arm and a leg for it! Needless to say, this coat has been well worn and well loved this winter season. 🙂
Anyways, I wanted to show you how you could keep warm by layering without sacrificing style during the colder months. Underneath, I’m wearing a shearling textured jacket from Oak and Fort on top of a turtleneck. I tend to look for sweater/jackets that look good, but also feel dense enough so that the wind doesn’t feel like it’s going right through it (if you know what I mean!). If you want that added layer of warmth, you can actually layer on an additional longsleeved undergarment underneath which makes a wearing mockneck shirt beneficial and stylish at the same time!
I’m actually so excited for the upcoming months because it’s 1) Spring (no snow!) and 2) we start a new chapter in our life (our move!). Besides that though, there’s a ton going on with my work, my husband’s work/studies, life in general… but I really want to try to get more content on the blog because I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I’ve been shooting with a new photog friend lately, and I won’t be able to shoot with him any longer after July. It’s kind of bittersweet leaving Halifax as it’s been our home for the last 5 years, and my husband’s for his entire life! As much as I’m excited to move back to Toronto, I can’t say I won’t miss it around here!
