Happy Boxing Day!!!! (For all my Canadian loves).
I wanted to share what I wore today to go boxing day shopping! My family and I never go full out and wake up at the crack of dawn to shop and to be honest, most years we’re too tired from Christmas to go shopping anyways. We finally decided that today we would go experience boxing day and of course, the weather was absolute crap. There was an ice rain warning in the morning that made my mom paranoid. The sky was so dark and the temperature was warm but low key cold. Basically it was the type of weather where it was too warm to wear a winter coat but too cold to wear a light jacket only. All in all, a bad day to be outside.
I honestly think my outfit reflected how I felt about going outside.
This was my mood about having my picture taken, even though I requested it. Home girl was really moody today haha.
I opted for a turtle neck sweater that you can’t quite see, but I didn’t have a scarf I wanted to wear so this was my other option for protecting my neck. SIDE NOTE: Protect. your. neck!!!!!!! I am so serious, wear a scarf or wear a turtle neck but never go outside with a bare neck during the winter time, it increases your chances of getting really sick! I’ve learned my lesson.

Anyways, I went with a purple turtleneck (that I actually mentioned in my last blog post) and pulled on my Talula coat that I got from Aritzia probably 2 years ago! I tried to look for it on the website and I couldn’t find it, but this Babaton coat is literally the exact same if you want to get your hands on something similar!
What I love about this coat is the structure/shape of it because it’s not so tight and allows me to layer underneath! Also, the material is incredibly high quality and sturdy so it keeps me warm! I also think a simple black coat is such a staple in any wardrobe that goes with anything!
As you can see, this coat has almost an A-line so it’s perfect for hiding that winter insulation…if you know what I mean. Also, you might not be able to see but it has a super cute hood which comes in handy when it gets chilly or you’re caught in the rain with no umbrella.
I subconsciously chose black pants and black boots to go with this outfit…what are the odds. I wore my Ecco leather boots that have gone through all sorts of weather and are still in tact! Investment in some good boots is essential!
I am so tired but working on more blog posts!!!! Love you all!
