Winter Outerwear: Faux Fur Poncho

Isn’t this a fantastic photo?! ❤

That bright blue painted wall as a backdrop to me and my pup (Max) really came out great! Good eye –  Thanks Joel! ❤

You know what the worst part of winter is?  Seeing all the black parkas. :/

Don’t get me wrong – I’ve got a black parka too – it’s an essential to combatting Canadian Winters.

But since the weather has been pretty mild all of November, and these first few days of December, I’ve been experimenting with “alternatives to the parka”. 😀

Here’s what I came up with:furponcho1

I dunno about you, but wearing a single winter coat all winter long is just not my jam.

Living in a country where there’s typically 8-months of winter….a girl needs lotsa options for winter outerwear!  Click here and here and here for some of mine 🙂

This faux fur poncho does the trick on those “above 5 under 10 degree” weather days.

To keep me warm under this ‘alternative-to-the-parka’ is a long-sleeved black sweater.  With my head, neck and hands covered up, this faux fur sweater poncho kept me toasty warm.  

Wanna know what I’m wearing?

The leopard pants are from Old Navy; black booties and green leather gloves are from Winners; the gorgeous hat from Pearls and Pockets on WQW; and of course the Faux Fur Poncho is from Obsessions, in the P.A.T.H. in downtown Toronto.

Turbans are a popular item in the fashion world. Traditionally they’ve been worn by men of North African and Southeast Asia.

But nowadays these headwraps are becoming a fashion staple –   spotted on runways and street styles.

I try an avoid wearing black in the summer.

But since my hot pink leopard turban was the main focus of this outfit, a simple black cotton, knee-lenght tank dress seemed to be all I needed.

Belting it just added more shape and was a great way to pulling out  the browns of the leopard print.

Making this look an easy way to showcase my new found LOUD summer accessory.

NATURALLY I had to wear lipstick to match my turban 😛
