Spring Jackets

Today is the perfect spring day. The sun is shining, the sky is the most brilliant shade of blue, and there is a bit of a chill in the air. But the weather can be a bit unpredictable this time of year, so I won’t be packing away my snow boots and winter coat just yet.

In the meantime,  I’ve been hunting down jackets and coats to get me through the winter to spring transition. Here are 10 jackets I’ve got my eye on this season…

Get Cozy :: Perfect Ponchos

It’s November, the temperature is sitting at a balmy 17 degrees celcius, and I’m here sipping on a ginger beer tea pop from Davids Tea. I’m making the most of this beautiful weather as The Weather Network just informed me it won’t be sticking around much longer.

As we transition from fall to winter, it’s getting trickier and trickier to figure out what to throw on before running out the door. Lately, I’ve noticed women on the streets of Toronto sporting ponchos and it seems like the perfect in-between option. This versatile throw-over piece took centre stage at the Chanel, Chloé, and Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2015 shows.

I’m looking to ponchos to satisfy my layering needs during this unpredictable season. Here are 10 favourites I’ve spotted around the web…

Fall Inspiration :: The Camel Coat

If there’s one lesson we learned from the Fall 2014 runways, it’s that camel comes in many shades. From New York to Paris, designers gave us a plethora of camel outerwear to choose from – fur-collared, belted and oversized versions led the herd. Here’s a roundup of camel coat inspiration from the streets of New York, London, Paris, Sweden, and Moscow…
