Hey dolls! It’s the weekend!!!! And only 17 more days until Christmas!
A few days ago, I was spending time with my friend Faye, and we were talking about some new post ideas for Luna. She suggested I write a post on all my favourite jackets since I have so many! A few years ago, I was such a baby about being cold and walking around Toronto. You would see me in my parka from October – April (no joke). But last year I started to invest in some more fun & funky jackets since I could walk to my job underground and didn’t need to go outside at all during the winter months. Don’t get me wrong – I love love love my parka and it is definitely needed in Toronto, but sometimes its nice to have a little fun with your look.
So to bring this post to life, I met my friend Jackie at 8AM, we got some coffee at Crema and drove to an industrial part of town to take some photos of my fave pieces. What we didn’t realize – is HOW COLD IT WAS THAT MORNING. Sure it was sunny, but OH MY GOD. Thankfully, it didn’t take long and we didn’t lose our fingers to frost bite.
LONG FAUX SHERPA-LINED DENIM JACKET
My first look is with my favourite piece. I bought it last year from Zara during their Black Friday sale. I remember showing some people what I had ordered and I was met with a few judg-y eyes. HOWEVER… I was so in love with this jacket I didn’t even mind. Now, almost every time I go outside, someone comments on how much they love the jacket. Recently, I was at M Boutique and one of the girls who worked there had a 10 minute conversation with me about how she needed it in her life. Unfortunately, I haven’t seen this jacket at Zara since last year. BUT, Oak & Fort and Aritzia both have versions available this year.
FAUX FUR TRI-COLOUR JACKET
I LOVE THIS JACKET! When I ordered it, I did NOT expect it to be so cozy and warm. I feel so great when I wear it!! This is another Zara find and I only received it a week ago. I was lucky enough to get this one on sale during Black Friday too 🙂
FAUX SUEDE COAT
I bought this coat at the same time as the long sherpa denim one. This one is also from Zara. I find that Zara has a lot of coats and jackets that are not outrageously priced – especially if you can get them during one of their yearly sales. Now, this coat isn’t as warm as the others – I wear it mostly in the Fall. The colour is my favourite thing about it… a deep greenish/brown. Almost like olive, but not quite (side note: I hate olives). This year there are a few different versions of this coat, but nothing exact.
…and last but not least
BLACK DENIM JACKET WITH SOFT SLEEVE DETAIL
This is another new purchase from Zara. It’s actually been so cold that I haven’t been able to wear it. Although this is a “winter jacket” post, I feel this is better fitted to wear during the fall or more milder winter days. I’m used to longer denim jackets (I have a few that I wear in the summer too), so the shorter length is kind of throwing me through a loop. However, I think it’s a great casual jacket and I can’t wait for a warmer day and take full advantage.
So…….. which one is your favourite? 🙂
P.S. Thanks Jax for taking all the photos!
P.P.S. I think dying my hair blonde was the BEST decision I’ve ever made. My hair stylist is just the best!!!
