The weather in Toronto has been bipolar the last few weeks so I’m either in a cute fall outfit or all layered up for winter. My wardrobe doesn’t really transition from fall to winter; all I really do is add a bunch of extra layers underneath for warmth.
If you’ve been following me for the last 6 months, you’d know how much I mention how I love all-white looks. I even dedicated a summer lookbook
specifically for all-white outfits. Just because it’s a new season, doesn’t mean I’ve abandoned my white clothing. I still constantly wear the same ol’ Zara lace top and Topshop Joni jeans.
Since it’s been a trend to have “Winter Whites”, I thought this would be a fun way to incorporate a new coat I received from Blue Vanilla
. I’ve been so keen on owning a (faux) fur coat
but never had the guts to get one since it felt so over the top. After I got it, I immediately fell even more in love with it and snapped my friends (Carolina
) right away.
Like I mentioned, I still wear the same white pieces so it’s no surprise that for this outfit, it’s white jeans and a lace top. I paired it with a cute pom pom beanie and grey over the knee boots to tie it in with the bits of grey shown in the coat (since it is a faint leopard print).
Surprisingly, the coat is much warmer than you’d expect considering it is faux fur. The final look doesn’t feel over the top and honestly, if you’re wanting a fur coat but think it’s ‘diva-ish’ just go for it. It’s so much fun to wear and snuggle up in for cold nights.
SIDENOTE: The day I took these photos, I went to meet Iris Apfel at her public appearance at Holt Renfrew for Atelier Swarovski. She ended up complimenting my outfit and said how well made the fur coat was so if that doesn’t convince to not only check out Blue Vanilla but buy yourself a fur coat then I don’t know what will!
