Canadian winters...what can I say....they are long and cold. I remember when I first arrived to Canada in 1996 to Ottawa (wow that is a long time ago now), it was at the end of March. It was still -10 outside. This was a very hard concept for me to grasp, having arrived from south eastern Europe, where the winter appears to have disappeared all together in the last decade (just this weekend it was +15!). I never thought I would get used to it. I saw people walking around with their jackets wide open and no scarfs or gloves. I thought them to be strange. But humans are made to adapt. So much so that a year later I was (and still am) comfortable wearing a dress or a skirt in the winter, something I thought was impossible when I first arrived. Granted, winters in Toronto are not as cold as Ottawa, on exception of this year. Then again, winter was a little crazy for Europe last year and this year it is time for the American continent. How cold is it? Well it is -30 for the last few days. Here and there a warm day sneaks in just to tease you but then the temperature goes right back down. So how do you dress for this weather? I chose today to wear my fur coat, my thrift shop find for just $50. I have already told you about my confusion when it comes to fur in THIS post. I love it but will not buy a new piece, so thrift shops are just great for this. You get to recycle the coat already made 20-30 years ago. And you know what, these are the pieces that are usually kept in the best shape. After all, who in their right mind would spend big buck on buying a fur coat and not take care of it? These boots help with the cold as well because they are over the knee but also because they have a fleece lining, which is just perfect for the Canadian winters. I wanted a casual outfit so I chose to wear them with jeans and a sweatshirt. What do you think? Ciao!
Kanadske zime...sta drugo reci nego da su duge i hladne. Secam se kada sam se tek doselila u Kanadu, u Otavu daleke 1996, bio je mart mesec, sam kraj meseca. Napolju je bilo jos uvek -10 a ljudi su se kretali po gradu u raskopcanim jaknama i bez sala, kape ili rukavica. Secam se prve pomisli da su malo blesavi zbog toga, ali vec godinu dana kasnije, posto se covek lako prilagodjava svemu kad mora, vec sam i ja setala zimi u suknjama i haljinama na minusu. Na srecu sad zivim u Torontu gde su zime daleko blaze, sem naravno ove koja je inace neobicna za ceo Americki kontinent. Zadnjih nekoliko dana temperatura napolju je -30. I kako covek da se obuce na ovakvoj hladnoci? Za danasnji post ja sam odabrala moju krznenu bundu koju sam kupila i prodavnici za vec nosenu odecu za samo $50. Nista toplije od krzna zar ne? Vec sam vam govorila u OVOM postu o mom neodredjenom misljenju sto se tice krzna. Volim da ga nosim ali ne zelim da kupujem nove komade, vec samo da recikliram stare. Uostalom, svi polovni krzneni komadi na koje sam naista su bili u odlicnom stanju. Cizme koje nosim su takodje savrsene za ovu hladnocu jer su preko kolena a imaju u topao materijal unutra, perfektan za kanadsku zimu. Zelela sam casual outfit pa sam ih uparila sa farmerkama i duksericom. Sta mislite vi? Cao!
