BOF Street Style


Coat and Tights: H&M / Scarf: Joe Fresh / Hat, Gloves and Booties: Vintage

I know we've been hating on winter lately but today I took a moment to appreciate some of my best vintage winter accessories. All the finishing touches on this outfit are 100% vintage and I love the way they add interest. I also wanted to show you guy's last week's two-sided scarf in action, doesn't it look cozy? Well, I'm out now, time to enjoy the weekend!

The Perpetual Montreal Winter

I know, I know, you're all tired of all this WINTER-WOE-IS-ME!! thing.....believe me, so am I.

What can I say? It's getting really hard to ignore how awful it is in Montreal right now. It's the end of February and still -30, with a fresh pile of snow on the ground. It's as if the weather report is just taunting us. I always check that 14-day forecast and near the end of the two weeks, they always say the temperature is going to creep up there to the single digits below 0, but as the days pass, the numbers drop and they renew their 2-week promise, never to be fulfilled....

Those bastards.

You would think I'd get used to these long, hard winters here but no, not me. Every February is brutal because it's the coldest month and the month when you're the most sick of winter. You would be hard-pressed to find me at home (if I don't have to leave the house) in anything other than my cozy PJs and robe, wrapped up in a blanket. When I do venture out, you'll find me bundled up in my go-to down coat from RW&Co, my favourite wool mittens from Simons and cause I just can't pass up the opportunity to mismatch my prints, my fair isle leg warmers and houndstooth snow boots.

A new addition this winter for me is this lovely beaded headband from Aldo! It's so warm and snug with just a touch of flair. If you're looking for a fun, modern alternative to a plain old winter hat, I highly recommend a wool headband. I mean it will never rival a floral sundress in my heart, but I gotta say, it does soften that cruel, cruel winter punch in the gut.

The Two-Sided Scarf


Hey all! Just wanted to continue the scarf theme this week and share with you my number one for this winter brought to you by none other than one of my faves, JOE FRESH. You would think that we'd be starting to pack away our winter gear by now, but not so! Winter is still alive and well here in Montreal and no sign of dying down just yet.
Let me start by saying this scarf is huge! If you're going for that big scarf bundled-up look, this is perfect. It's also a very cozy scarf and the two sides make it super interesting. Two classic patterns coming together, houndstooth and tartan, it's a beautiful thing.

I'm trying to tell myself that we're in the winter home stretch but you really wouldn't know it from the weather we've been having lately. Sharp winds, never-ending snow and the mercury dipping below -30 are just some of the fabulous features of a Montreal February. And as many of you may know by now, I refuse to heat my apartment to an adequate degree (re: I'm cheap) so you'd be hard pressed to find me sitting at home without being wrapped up in some kind of blanket or scarf or even wearing my coat indoors.

Enter this delicious teal patchwork scarf I snapped up in India! I just love the colours and haphazard design of this scarf and it is so thick and warm. And you guys know how much I love my mismatched prints....I just had to add this to my winter rotation! Keeping warm in a Montreal winter is no joke and this is the next best thing after wearing my bathrobe everywhere. Has that become a thing yet? No? Didn't think so....

White on White

Jacket: Naf Naf (thrifted) / Boots: Michael Kors / Scarf: Joe Fresh / Headband & Gloves: vintage / Handbag: F21 / Tights: Smart Sert

Hey Frockers! I'm finally back with a new outfit post today. The past few weeks have been brutal since the cold here has been relentless and my fashion sense seems so far away from me. Not to worry, I pulled myself together for you guys and brought out one of my most recent thrifted jackets. Such a great find, obviously could not resist those puffed three quarter sleeves, right? I also happened to take these shots on one of the coldest days of the year so, as you can see, my poor little wrists suffered a bit but otherwise I'm bundled up nicely in a combination of furs. I'd like to point out that the scarf is actually 100% faux but it's absolutely one of the best looking faux furs I've ever seen. Ok, I love my winter accessories and all but...Is it too early to start a spring countdown?
