“UGG”


Parka

What a dramatic landscape, don’t you think? Winter can be so harsh sometimes, but also have its treasures, like this magnificent scenery.

Sam and I did this shoot while we where exploring the shoes of the St. Lawrence river in Rivière-du-Loup, with a very good friend. We definitely couldn’t resist taking many pictures!

The cold color palette was amazing, and my parka just fit the scene perfectly! When I purchased it, I chose it for its deep grey color, which I think suits my complexion, and stunning cotton fabric, which looks like denim! Together, they make this piece unusual and original. I also love the 8 pockets! I have so many pockets that I don’t even know which one to put my stuff in! And of course, this parka is warm enough to face the Canadian winter. It is loose enough to wear a big sweater or a vest underneath without looking like the Michelin man!

It’s a wonderfully versatile winter coat. One that is warm enough for an afternoon excursion along the water or stylish enough for a walk around the city.

Extreme Comfort

Winter is the best season for staying home and vegging out on a sofa. So I thought this would be the perfect time to show you the kind of clothes I wear to be at my most comfortable!

First of all, I love to wear an angora sweater because of it’s extremely soft and warm. I simply wear it over a t-shirt. Then, I throw on my James Perse pants. They are stretchy but not too sloppy (just not my style), and I love the distinctive details of this model.

The final touch: my UGG slippers! Shopping for slippers is not very exciting… but they are SO practical! I have had this pair for 3 years now and I have no idea how I used to survive the harsh Canadian winter before getting them. From October to April, this is literally the item I wear everyday! I can confirm that they were a very good investment.

What about you? What items keep you the comfiest during winter?

Deep Freeze

I really like to be warm and cozy, so if you run into me on a harsh winter’s day, you will probably find me wrapped up in my down coat. The trick to not being cold is to layer. Personally, I wear a hood over my knitted cap (or as we call it in Canada: a tuque), a long sleeve tee under a huge wool sweater, 2 pairs of socks, a long scarf that I can wrap around my neck twice, some gloves lined with wool and some very warm footwear. My boots are my best purchase from last year. These are from UGG’s “Event” line. They are very warm, comfortable and waterproof, but they still allow your feet to breathe. A must if you live in a northern country!
