From the Midwest to the Northeast, beautiful pristine snow kept falling until these parts of the globe were covered with a blanket of white for up to about a foot or more in some places. This may seem poetically magical but the truth of the matter is, it was a horrible time for everyone as this kind of snowfall is usually followed by freezing arctic cold, horrible road conditions both for pedestrians and cars resulting to, well, unfortunately, a whole lot of accidents.
With that in mind, how can you even think of fashion and style during this season? You are forgiven if you aren’t thinking about it at all. On most days, I just want to wrap myself in a massive wool coat or a Michelin Man-like parka, my first choice really was wearing a pile of blankets and a mattress but sometimes, I just have to make a lot more effort into dressing myself especially for work. You see, I give a whole lot of credit to Canadian fashion and style bloggers especially in the winter – to look that good despite the frigid freezing temperature and to be able to take photographs when your fingers are at risk for frostbite in less than 5 minutes – kudos indeed.
It’s not all that bad however. For one thing, you do get to showcase a good number of gorgeous winter coats and jackets like this gorgeous number from Banana Republic. It doesn’t hurt to have great looking yet stable leather shoes like these ECCO Canada Sculptured 75 Booties either. Are they warm? Not necessarily but considering you would rarely take them off this season, even when you’re inside, you could wear a garbage bag or pajamas underneath (please don’t) and get away with it. Personally, though I love my Canada Goose parka, it still is a parka and for the name of fashion, I’m apparently willing to sacrifice my health and well-being to not look like a frumpy shapeless sleeping bag walking the streets of winter.
