A Very Canadian Toque For a Very Canadian Winter
Doesn’t it always seem like winter is 8 million months long? Maybe that’s an exaggeration. It’s more like 2 million months long. I bet all you California and Florida and Texas (heck, even Vancouver) peeps are reading and nodding your heads pretending you know what a long winter feels like. Why oh why do I have to live in Edmonton where I’m permanently cold. Well, Taylor, you could just move. Yes, yes I could. And I plan to do that one day. Then I can finally stop complaining on ze blog all the time how cold I am.
When it stays so cold for so long, it becomes really hard to keep picking out cute outfit. All I want to do is throw on the biggest, thickest sweater I can find, wrap a blanket scarf around my neck, throw on Uggs and a parka and call it a day. But no, I can’t do that. Because I have to look “cute” and “stylish” and not like a potato. But I really want to be a potato. Ya feel?
Luckily, my new toque from Nordstrom combines my wannabe potato tendencies and a high cuteness factor into one. I picked up this hat when I was in Vancouver because they have the most glorious Nordstrom. When will Edmonton get a Nordstrom? I really need one. But for now we have Nordstrom Rack which is as good as it’s gonna get apparently. Anyways, Nordstrom is great and I found this cute pink faux fur pom pom toque (American translation: beanie) there. I have been searching for a new pom pom toque as cute as my Topshop cream one that I got a few years ago but it’s a lot harder to find the perfect one than you’d think. Topshop still makes the pom pom toques in a variety of colors but they’re not the same as my old one. They’re a lot bigger now. I have the world’s smallest head so no beanie fits quite right and thus the Topshop ones are now a lil’ bit too big for my pinhead. But the Nordstrom BP ones are perfect for all my small head friends
The rest of the outfit isn’t even worth talking about, to be honest. I’m wearing my favorite Kit and Ace peacoat over a cream sweater, black jeans and my black patent Kendall and Kylie boots. And, so we don’t die of boredom over my outfit, I’m carrying my pink Michael Kors purse that matches my pink toque because we all know I like to be matchy-matchy with my colours.
