If you were following my blog last year, you know that winter fashion street style inspiration currently on Instagram or Pinterest is not a true depiction of practical winter attire. With this in mind, I wanted to style something that was both exciting and warm, fun and functional!
I got together with Ottawa Photographer Kamara Morozuk, who doesn’t necessarily do street style photography (although she nailed it!) but has found her true passion in live concert photography. Her work is amazing! I love her spunky energy and her shooting style so much, that I want to keep her all to myself! So don’t visit her Instagram, ok?
I just can’t even… Every time I look at these bright photos, I forget that it’s winter and that we have 50+ cm of snow piled up on the streets.
Amy Symes and I planned this impromptu winter fashion street style session last weekend, at a few different spots in Ottawa. Something I have been meaning to tick off the old “to-do” list. I was so happy to work with her. I have known Amy for just over a year and love her bright, beautiful and crisp photography style. She was a trooper to do this in the cold and managed to stay friends with me, despite her frozen fingers. I, on the other hand was warm! That’s right, my friends… no suffering here! That was the goal of this winter fashion shoot. Some practical styling tips for a true Canadian fashionista, unlike what exists online.
In this photo, I am wearing my favourite pompom tuque from Shepherds, my vintage fur coat and Tory Burch fur boots from The Clothes Secret, black leather gloves from Simons, my bright blue Marc Jacobs back pack from Fashion United, and black leggings from Amazon!
