Coat:  Vintage
Scarf:  Dynamite
Sweater:  J.Crew cashmere cardigan
Blouse:  found at Winners
Pants:  J.Crew Full-length Minnie in bi-stretch wool {really liking these pants!  I also bought them in burgundy during J.Crew’s last sale blowout 🙂 I already have a pair of the Minnie’s in twill, but they are not my favorite (because of the fabric).  The bi-stretch wool version is far better!}
Purse:  Vintage {similar here and here}
Shoes:  Pour la Victoire “Carmendy” {also here}

Is anyone else sick of winter?  I don’t normally complain about the seasons, but this winter is just dragging on and on…
I know I’ve said it before, but wearing color really helps my break out of my winter funk…even if only for a short while.  For today’s look, I took a chance on pairing dark olive pants {thanks Wikipedia for help classifying this color!} with my vintage teal coat.  And I have to say, I am quite happy with the result!

Winter Walk

Sweater:  McKinley {very similar}
Pants:  Lululemon Studio Pant II {with liner}
Hat:  Club Monaco Colleen {tired of seeing it yet?  It’s definitely a favorite!}
Scarf:  via Winners
Gloves:  Under Armour {I normally wear these while winter running…that being said, my tolerance for cold weather running is terrible & and I only go if the temp is -5C or warmer…}

We had a few mild days recently and we were able to go for a walk without putting on an extra 5 lbs of winter gear.  However, even though this sweater is meant for cold weather, I am also wearing thermal long underwear to stay warm.

Scooter generally wears a backpack on our walks.  Normally we have him carry a couple bottles of water {for himself, since he often gets thirsty on long hikes}, however in the winter he is more apt to eat snow than wait for water, so he carries extra gear instead {light coats, extra mitts, etc}.

These photos were taken last week.  We unfortunately have a lot more snow now.  The dogs are loving it 🙂
There’s nothing like a long down coat to beat the cold.  I picked up this beauty last year during a clearance sale.  It’s now my go-to wear-to-work coat – it keeps me nice and warm during my daily commute!

Happy belated Thanksgiving to my American readers 🙂

Canadian retailers have started jumping on the ‘Black Friday’ bandwagon (a newer occurrence) and I managed to pick up a iRobot Roomba this weekend for 40% off.  I am pretty excited!  With two large dogs (both heavy shedders despite regular brushings), I have high expectations for the Roomba.  Don’t get me wrong, I expect to pull out my vacuum weekly (or bi-weekly – fingers crossed!) to catch areas this it missed (and stairs etc that it doesn’t clean), but if it picks up the majority of the dog fur, I will be more than happy!
