How to Stay Stylishly Warm in Winter
Well, look at us, enjoying the blue skies and sunshine, even if it was somewhat short lived. Yep, it’s currently raining again, but at least I have these photos as proof that the weather is usually beautiful here during the winter. This season though, it’s been the wettest we’ve had in over a decade apparently and it’s definitely not a bad thing.
As you know, we’ve been away for the last few weeks, so the first thing I did when we got back, aside from the usual Netflix catch-up, was walk to the beach. There’s no feeling quite like home or, in my case, the sound of the ocean crashing along my favourite place in the world.
I actually love the beach during the winter. Even though it’s cold, we often have the entire stretch of sand to ourselves, the perfect setting to enjoy a morning coffee and breathe in that fresh salty air. Plus, keeping warm isn’t hard when you’ve got a down jacket (I spoken more than a few times about how much I love my UNIQLO down!) and I’m all about my seamless down parka right now. You wouldn’t believe how much of a difference it makes on a chilly, windy day.
So you know, I ended up getting mine a couple of sizes bigger for extra comfort (and coolness, duh) as always. Goodness knows, I sure do love the oversized look, especially when it comes to my UNIQLO wardrobe staples! I paired it with my usual knit jumper, skinny jeans and sneakers look, adding a patterned scarf for extra warmth (it also unintentionally doubles as a throw, as you can see).
Since we’re only home for the week, Brad and I will definitely be making the most of it and wandering down to the beach as much as possible. Like I said, best feeling in the world.
