This jacket was a major score from Zara this week for only $60. To be honest I have gone a little nuts at Zara the last month. I really need to take a bit of a shopping break and work with what I have, at least until Spring.
Anyhow, I love that this menswear inspired jacket is super oversized. I wore my faux leather leggings from Aritzia. They are really high waisted and have tons of spandex in the tummy area. Super slimming.
As for the shirt, its from Zara too. Its a basic long sleeve pocket tee with a ruffle at the bottom. It comes in black, rose and olive. And its only $12 on sale at Zara right now.
And I dug these boots out from the back of my closet – they were a Winners score from a least 5 years ago. They remind me of something you might have seen on Anne of Green Gables. But nonetheless I think they look super cool with these leggings.

I tend to wear alot of neutrals, mostly shades of grey. And I know I am not alone. Don’t get me wrong I love colour but its just not as easy as grabbing your go to basics. But when I do wear colour I feel fantastic, especially when its a sunny yellow. I found this jacket a few years ago at Club Monaco and its been a wardrobe stable. I love how this jacket makes me feel when I wear it – happy!
I know canary yellow isn’t your typical winter shade, but I can’t think of a better way to brighten up a dreary Canadian winter day. I found this works best with a monochromatic look. I paired it with an embellished knit but a simple grey tee would look great too.
So if you are feeling a little blah, try a pop of yellow. A little yellow goes a long way.

Typically pink is not a go to colour for me when it comes to my wardrobe. But when I saw this coat at Zara I knew I had to have it. It probably didn’t hurt that it was on clearance for only $69. I love the floaty shape (it’s perfect for layers), the length and the soft salmon shade of pink.
Usually with a bold piece like this, I keep the rest of my look fairly neutral and monochromatic. I stuck with grey in this case. I also loved the way the pink looked with thus red scarf. Not only are pink and red a little unexpected as a colour combo but I found that the red somehow toned down the pink a little.
Oh and meet Molly. She is the snuggliest, softest bestie a girl could ask for.
The coat at Zara is sold out. But I have listed a similar style below.
