Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season filled with love, family and lots of treats. I know I had my fair share…I just can’t resist those chocolate dipped peanut butter balls. Honestly I can be a little regimented and I am happy to be back in my routine.

I am devoting this week to all things outerwear…coats, jackets, vests, scarves gloves and boots. Living in a cold climate can make every day dressing seem pointless…who can you see your chic outfit under your parka?? My solution to this fashion crisis? Many coats and jackets and all of the furry accessories to go along with them.

I believe a wardrobe of outwear helps you get through the winter blues…from a sporty parka to a refined leather trench. On Friday I will post a daily pic of my outwear choices this week.

Here is a sneak peek…yesterday I sported this beautiful double faced wool coat from J Crew.


This is a very versatile minimalist coat..the slight cocoon shape and asymmetrical zipper give this classic taupe piece a modern edge. The high quality double faced wool make this thin coat much warmer than it appears.


This gorgeous fur scarf from Danier is equal parts luxe and warmth. My Ugg leather gloves add the finishing touch, I feel like a “classy bird” when I wear this ensemble.


I just got my roots done…I feel human again.  All thanks to my beautiful hair dresser, she is the bomb!


Visit on Friday to see my entire week of outerwear. What are your favourite winter outerwear looks?

Your friend in fashion…amy.
