I read a news report that Toronto is currently colder than Mars. If that is true, it’s absolutely insane and I need to leave this place ASAP. If I’m going to school or running errands I like to just wear my big parka but when I’m seeing friends or going into the city I still choose my coats. On this day, to balance the coat I wore I put on layers and layers, which is why I wore a big chunky knit and my boy jeans so that I have plenty of room underneath them to actually layer. The only slight downside to layering so much is when you’re actually inside a heated area and it becomes quite hot – but other than that, it’s definitely the best way to stay warm in the winter.
This coat has been sitting in one of the closets in my house for a couple of years but for some odd reason I never wore it out. I was in the search of an oversized & boxy coat and my mom reminded me of this exact coat. Other than the slight shoulder pads that it has, it’s pretty much all that I was looking for. The coat is super warm and thick as well, making it perfect for the cold winter days. I’ll definitely be wearing more of this coat throughout the rest of this winter and will show you guys the different ways I style it!
