Winter is officially here, which means heavy duty coats and a lot of layers. Even so it’s challenging to look stylish during these extreme cold days, it’s defiantly achievable. The key is to invest on accessories that will jazz up your look and and will give a refreshing update to your winter wardrobe.
Apart from statement bags and killer shoes (leopard booties can be a great option), there are some winter accessories, that not only keep you warm but will make you look super fashionble, as furry scarves, gloves and pom pom hats.
Fur accessories might work wonders, providing a glamorous touch to a casual cozy look. This fur scarves from Topshop stole my hart, even so I got it last year, I still think it’s still relevant. You can wear it around the neck or carry your fur in your hand for a maximum glam. Bright or colourful accessories is another way to let your outfit pop up, so skip the black and experiment with textures and fun hue…

Lets face it: my phone is my most used accessory, I can’t leave him alone for few seconds (except when I am working out…), so it deserves to be as well dressed as I am. I truly believe that a stylish case is a great way to express yourself and can magically upgrade your outfit. So beside the fact the quality cases will protect your device, they can also let your personally speak for itself. I was looking for iPhone cases that will evoke a little individuality into my daily style, because as you know, fashion is all the little details.
Richmond & Fince is a Scandinavian brand who carries a protective covers that stands out in a crowd, so whether you’re feeling girly, feminine, or powerful, they have the best covers to feed your needs. Thanks to the high quality materials, designs and prints, these phone cases are markedly outstanding. The company also pay attention to the environment, making their iPhone cases from cruelty-free materials, without compromising on their designs, which are going hand in hand with current fashion trends.
Unfortunately fall is coming to an end, I am still can’t get into the winter mood, which included heavy duty coats and chunky boots. I can’t believe that these pictures were taken just few days ago before all the leaves were falling off the trees and the weather was perfect for a light jacket and sneakers.
These sneakers, from Native, a Canadian brand specializing in vegan shoes, are so light and breathable, which allow me to wear them all they long for any activity. The classy and timeless sneakers in black are incredibly versatile and can match with any style. They will be perfect for these days when you have a busy schedule.
I was so exciting about the The Kenzo x H&M Collection that arrived to H&M last week. This collection is all about the celebration of colours with lots of bold prints mixing together and layers upon layers. More is more is defiantly the motto of Kenzo, so don’t be affraid to embrace it.
I must admit that in a first glint, Kenzo’s jungle-inspired collection was a bit intimidating for me, even so I really love colourful and bright prints. I decided to give it a try and not only because I couldn’t leave the store with empty hands.
From wide collection which including furry coats, embroidered sweatshirts, animal print jumpsuits and bold purses, I choose this wool turtleneck sweater, simply because I think it a must have piece for the cold days of winter, that will keep you warm and cozy without compromise on your style. To create a look that appropriate for daytime , I wore it with crop jacket and a sweatpants that gave it an effortless twist.

It’s hard for me to admit, but currently I am on a tight budget, which means buying less clothes and try to focus on giving a new life to my current pieces. One way to spice up your closet without going on a shopping spree is by putting your efforts on these little details that will make your clothes looks more attractive again. I would suggest to invest on a piece of jewelry that will complete your outfit and will give it a stylish boost.
Jewelry charms are great choice since they are not only jazzing up your outfit, but also will define your own personality, since your can built your own charms according to your own taste. This is defiantly what makes it more meaningful, also as a gift to your beloved.
One of my favourite jewelry brand is Soufeel, therefore I was so excited to collaborate with them again. The label curries wide selection of beads, bracelets and other accessories including memorable charms with your themed photos. All of their products are made from 925 sterling silver. The bracelet ‘s sizing is also customized, so you can actually choose the length that will match perfectly to your hand. Also their prices are really affordable .
I picked this bracelet with three charms in earthy vibrant hue. I think that having a bit of colour is a perfect way to highlight your fall winter look, but still keep it classy.
I wore it with a plaid shirt dress from Club Monaco and kimono from French Connection, both pieces were neglected in my closet, until I discovered them again when I was organizing my closet.

The perfect coverup for late fall is the oversized wool jacket.
This is the time of year that you need to bundle up, but the common concern is how to addlayers without feel bulky. Believe it or not, I really think that there are some creative tricks that will help you brave the cold in style, like choosing a light weight coat that will not add any volume to your look and will easily be removed if you heat up. Other way is playing with proportions, for example, wearing a long coat, a fitted knit with a cutting-edge detailing and a body-skimming pants with unique details or textures like these cute ruffles in the bottom. The three pieces complement each other perfectly and bring some edginess to classic layers look.
I took advantage of the decent temperatures and paired it with a lace up shoes. Even so I love boots, I am still not ready to wear them yet…
When the temperature start to drop and the cold winter is almost here, there is no other choice but to invest in a high quality pair of boots. The long and harsh winter, which can last until April, require a practical thinking. Luckily, winter boots brands have brought in trendier styles, that not only made for the outdoor activity, but also look stylish than ever; one of them is Timberland. The original symbol yellow boots got a makeover and now you can also get this iconic shoes in a rich burgundy colour, which is perfect for the fall- winter days.
While attending to Timberland’s Modern Trail Gallery in East Room to explore their Fall collection, including a sneak peek of their spring 2017, I met Bob Esplin, one of the Timberland’s management to learn from him about the brand’s success
Can you tell me about the current collection? What is the inspiration behind it?
Timberland collection deliver all day versatility and outdoor performance, that match the active urban life style and suit for everyday adventures. The collection is inspired by colours and textures of a golden harvest and including more tailored and modern elements.

When it comes to shoes, we defiantly need to teach a man to think like a woman, carrying more pair of shoes for any occasion or activity. Also I truly believe that every girl need a pair of Timberland.
In your opinion, how do you describe the Canadian market?
The Canadian market is different from the US market, The people are more loyal and sophisticated, even if it can be quite challenging sometimes. Since Toronto is a big city with a powerful impact on the market, we put a lot of effort to succeed here. The cold weather during the winter and the beautiful nature are the perfect platform for selling our high quality and waterproof products.
2016 is defiantly the year of the bomber jacket. The trend that started in the streets is here to stay, at least for another season. As a bomber lover, needless to say how exciting I am about updating my wardrobe with more versions of this cool jacket.
That’s why I was so happy to collaborate with StyleWE, an online fashion brand that carries wide selection of stylish clothing featuring independent fashion designers, including endless verity of bombers that can match every woman’s lifestyle. The fashion forward pieces along with the high quality products is just irresistible. While looking through their collections I saw this statement piece, a blue colour block bomber jacket , which I knew right away that this is the one. A timeless staple piece that also can elevate a casual outfit to fashionable one.
