A couple weeks ago me, my dad, and my sister took a trip to Nanaimo, British Columbia. Nanaimo is a gorgeous small town on Vancouver island. Being near the ocean is one of my favourite things, so any chance I get I have to go visit.
It was January and still pretty chilly, so I put this outfit together with keeping warm in mind!

Top: For my top I am wearing, from Aritzia, a Wilfred long sleeved, v-neck, shirt in xxs. It’s in the colour heather grey, with cream border at the neck. This is one of my favourite shirts to throw on because its so comfortable, but isn’t too plain. Its perfect under my leather jacket as well.
Bottom: For my pants I am wearing the Free People high-rise black jean. These jeans have spandex in them so they are really comfortable, but will stretch out. I am wearing size 25, but if I knew how much they would stretch out I probably would have gone with a 24. You have to be really careful not to put these jeans in the dryer, as the spandex would snap and your jeans would be waay too lose. And as per usual I cuffed the bottom of the jeans just to style the look a touch more.
Coat: This coat is the Community Paradigm Parka, that I picked up at Aritzia. I had to save up for a couple months for this coat, but it was so worth it. I wore this parka almost every single day during the cold Canadian winter haha. It is longer so it not only keeps my arms and core warm, but my entire body. The faux fur hood is quite fluffy and large, but thats what makes the parka to me stand out and be more than just a coat.
Shoes: I am wearing small suede booties that I picked up at Urban Outfitters about 2 years ago. This exact style isn’t sold there anymore, but any bootie would have worked for this look! Even a pair of chucks or New Balance runners would have worked perfectly.
Hope you enjoyed!
