Walking in a winter wonderland


‘Tis chilly in Vancouver so I’m bundling up to the nines in a heckuva lotta plaid. (Very Canadian.)


And thick, thick leggings with piping detailing — only $25 at Target. (Not very Canadian.)


My love of hiking has taught me one thing about how to dress for wonky weather — layer like crazy. Hence the men’s scarf, men’s shirt, oversized vintage wool jacket. And a million other layers of t-shirts under that.


I should be fine. As long as it doesn’t dip below -5.


Please, Vancouver, be kind to us. (And please, Saskatoon, don’t laugh at us for being such fair-weather wussies.)

P.S. Stay warm with The Anthology on Facebook.

    I’m soooo glad super-tight-can’t-breathe-love-handles-bulging kind of clothing is not in anymore!!! I love your blazer! I love menswear clothing!

    Crazy how the temperature really dropped. My little brother in Alberta thinks we’re babies. We British Columbians are spoiled little brats. I like snow, but wind chill factor, please go away.

    I wish I looked this cute in the cold weather. I’d still be freezing with an open jacket and thick leggings!! Totally wish I was born more cold-tolerant hahah.

    I love your boots Kelsey, they are perfect for this weather! Great layered look you’ve styled up. I have a feeling we’re going to be wearing layers for many many days to come!

    I love love love this look! The mix of plaid and menswear look is amazing. Where can I find the shirt and jacket? And do they come in other colours?

  • Reply Nicole December 1, 2010 at 11:30 pm

    I love this layered plaid menswear-inspired outfit. not really menswear inspired and just straight up menswear, but of course, you look amazing, as per usual! love the mixed plaid elements, you look cozy and stylish!

    I like how you’ve combined the different plaids and made it work!

    Elsa — Hope you find one similar!

    Bionica — So, so cozy. It’s a must.

    Kaye — Ha! I could never live in Alberta for that very reason. I’m just not hardcore enough.

    Samantha — It’s all about the layers underneath. That, and staying inside.

    Alinka — Thank you!

    Janet Taylor — Awww thanks!

    Lisa — Hope you had fun at Vincent Park. So sorry I missed it.

    Michelle — JNBY has some amazing leggings with piping.

    Janis — Fair enough. My wussiness deserves it.

    Alicia — Seriously! As long as it’s snowing, I’ll be happy. It’s just the rain I can’t handle.

    Sharon — Do you watch 30 Rock? The Canadian guy is always, always, always wearing plaid. I think he should join our plaid posse.

    Jenny — Both are vintage, I’m afraid. The shirt is men’s, so I’m sure you could find something similar in any men’s department. The jacket might be a bit tougher to find something like it, though. Let me know how it goes!

    Nicole — It’s all about real, good old-fashioned mens clothing. Love it!

    Chelsea — Thanks m’lady!
