Daily Wears | Parka Jackets & Lace

Nov 19, 2014

Perhaps it's the Canadian girl in me... but I love pairing a parka with a pretty lace dress. When it comes to personal style, I definitley have a thing for pairing the unexpected! Like, a pretty statement necklace with Martin's over-sized sweater + rolled up jeans, or a floaty maxi dress with a shrunken plaid shirt. So much fun! What are your favourite and unexpected pairings? And speaking of personal style... for this fall & winter it's my goal to do a little bit more style blogging on "By The Shore!" Hope you guys don't mind! ;) I have several outfits I'm excited to share and I've kind of been bit by the personal style bug. So yup, I'm just going with it!



Parka: Old Navy (similar), Dress: Forever 21 (similar), Tights: Modcloth, Booties: Aldo Shoes (similar)

  12. Oh V, this look really couldn't be anymore Canadian - too cute! Personally, I've never been able to get on board with parkas or snowboots, no matter how cold it gets. (And yes, I mean even in Winnipeg!) I see them look cute on so many other people but when I wear them, I just feel strange. Seems so silly to say it, but it's true. So looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!
    xox,

  19. Bring on the outfit posts, dearest Veronika...they are my absolute favourite!! You look cute as a button in this lacy dress and parka combo; adding tights and a cozy topper to our summer frocks takes them so nicely into the colder months, doesn't it?? XOXO
