I am not a winter girl. I teeter on the word “hate” when it comes to snow, cold, wind and the dark abyss that we live in for several months. Sometimes, it’s cute. Sometimes, snow falling onto pine trees that twinkle in the sun is mesmerizing. SOMETIMES it’s nice to sit inside with a cozy […]
Read the title of this blog post. Read it again. Winter outfits SO FAR. Because living in Toronto (or most places in Canada) winter isn’t close to over, and we have far more of it to endure.
