Frank and Oak // Venture Parka
This is the first parka I’ve ever owned as an adult. I usually trudge through our Canadian winters with a wool coat and layers, but this year I decided to finally get warm! Made with 100% recycled polyester (water bottle) filling, water repellent and warm from -10c to -25c.
Only Child // Sonora Hooded Coat
The first day I wore this coat, I realized I forgot my reusable bags – and instead of asking for a bag at the liquor store, I carried home a full-sized bottle of wine in the pocket of this coat – fully concealed! The pockets are magic. I even fit a DSLR, with a lens, in the other pocket. This coat is great for late fall and early winter in northern climes, but can be worn throughout the Canadian winter if you layer thoroughly!
L’Envers // Nina Cardigan
Founded by Julie, L’Envers originated out of her desire to re-connect to the family legacy of the Northern French textile industry (her family has been in this industry since 1820)! Now in Spain, Julie works with local knitters and farms to create one-of-a-kind knitwear just like grandma used to make. This cropped merino wool cardigan has been a winter staple of mine all season.
Tradlands // Shelter Cardigan
Cozy, oversized, and sensitive skin friendly! This chunky knit is made with cotton, so if you’re vegan or allergic to wool, it’s perfect for you. I find it quite an oversized fit and took my usual size in Tradlands (XS), but could have taken a size down for a better fit through the hips and sleeves. Keep your regular size if you want it to be oversized!
Harly Jae // Pierrot Jacket
The boxy jacket that’s your denim jacket’s best friend. For the days when denim isn’t dressy enough, but you still want to be casual. I have yet to experiment with this piece, but am excited to pull it out in the spring!
Sotela // Forest Cardigan
Like a fleecy hug, this cardigan can double as outerwear in late spring or early fall. Although initially hesitant about forest green, I’ve found it complements nearly everything in my wardrobe! Sleeves are on the longer side, so I cuffed and then hemmed mine 🙂
