Winter fashion street style: leopard coat & black booties

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.

A true look at Canadian Winter Fashion in 2016

If you’re anything like me, getting dressed in the mornings these days, is harder than ever.

Forget trends and style for a minute. What on earth do I wear when there is 2 feet of snow and I don’t want to freeze my buns off, yet still want to look like I am not bundled in a duvet. Although, that sounds amazing.

Gorgeous 😍 I love it. I can totally shovel my driveway in those heels. I’ll skip the sox too… That’s extra laundry and plus, having feelings in your ankles is so 2015.

There isn’t much available online that depicts what true fashionistas are sporting on the snowy slushy streets of  Canada. It’s also important to note that we, as Canadian fashion bloggers, have a duty to report on what true Canadian Fashion trends look like in 2016. I want to see boots, scarves, mittens, hats, parkas… The whole nine yards.

I found these pictures that make a bit more sense…
