Plaid Scarf And Menswear Inspired Coat

Unbranded Plaid Scarf, H&M Jacket, Payless Boots, Roots Bag, J.Crew Belt, Gap Sunglasses, Pierre Cardin Mens Shirt, Della Mora Designs Necklace



Last weekend I went on a lovely dinner date to Sassafraz in Yorkville and wore one of my favourite winter outfits. I find dressing up in the winter to be so challenging, since there are always a million factors to take into account. Will your shoes get salty? Will your pants be warm enough? Do you need a hat? How many sweaters will suffice?

I love bundling up, but I hate immediately overheating once I enter into a building. I've had great luck with winter clothing made of classic cashmere or wool, since these materials keep me very warm, without causing the instant sweat that polyester fabrics bring upon us. Cotton is great for layering, and I always keep a thin tank underneath any tees or sweaters that I put on top. (My favourites are from Uniqlo.)

I also must give a shout-out to my MEC thermal leggings that I literally only take off to wash. Then they go right back on. #GreatWhiteNorth

Still dreaming about my Quail appetizer


Outfit details: This white shirt was a thrifting find, my necklace is one of my designs, the skinny jeans are from Gap and my boots are Payless. The plaid scarf is from my grandmother, and the calf hair belt is still available here at J.Crew. My purse is the Selina bag from Roots, first mentioned here. The menswear inspired coat is from the Isabel Marant pour H&M collection that happened last year. I've worn it a lot, and it has held up very well.

Indulging in a caramel apple spice to keep me warm during this frigid arctic spell.

Have a happy weekend!

  1. Looks great!... Polyester are always good at wearing. Nowadays people are also getting some pair of low shrinkage polyester yarn and building up their creativity... Well I must say it looks good... Thanks.
