Looking Cool When It's Cold Out

Hey friends!
So since arriving in Canada, I have been trying to settle in to a routine of some sort and it's actually a lot harder than I thought! One of my major distractions has been the freedom of going out to walk with my family's dog Toby. He is part hound and part mutt and loves nothing more than to run free in the woods and so that's where we take him. Whilst out galavanting, I thought I would take the opportunity to check out whether I had made a wise weather appropriate coat for Canada.



As the weather has started to get colder, my favourite cute winter coats were no longer cutting it, and I needed something that was warm, friendly for running about in and easy to clean, but of course, that still looked awesome. I went on a search and it was harder than I thought, because finding good quality and very warm coats in plus size is still difficult, even here in Canada.


I was really glad to find this Concept K two tone faux fur hood parka* from one of my favourite online shops, Navabi. This coat is an absolute must for anyone that spends time outdoors, lives somewhere that gets real cold but that also still wants to feel stylish and cool.


I have worn my new coat loads since the temperature dropped, including to an epic Christmas market with a giant tree,  and here are a few of my favourite things about it. It has a sort of faux-vest layer on the inside, which means that if you drive, you can unzip the actual coat for ease of movement, but still feel warm and cozy.


The two toned arms and body make it feel upscale and cool which is a nice touch. It has great deep pockets, a huge hood and good cuffs and neck coverage to shield you from the rain, wind and snow. You feel warm and safe in this coat - no amount of bad weather is going to leave you cold and wet - it's an absolute winner. I would recommend that you buy your true size, as I sized up and find it a bit big. I am wearing a UK 22 and have lots of room for layers and anything else I want to wear underneath.
Thank you again Navabi, for providing us with beautiful, practical, plus size garments - I know this coat will be in my wardrobe for several seasons, keeping me toasty.
