Last week I talked about the new holiday campaign Upper Canada Mall launched called #IamMrsClaus, which is about the modern Mrs. Claus. She represents all of us who can juggle everything thrown at us during the holidays, all while looking stylish in the process.
To make the holidays a bit easier, Upper Canada Mall has released an extensive gift guide to help us find that perfect gift for each person on our list.
I did some of my own holiday shopping at Upper Canada Mall this past weekend, and indulged in a #MyMrsClaus gift for myself. What is a #MyMrsClaus gift you might be asking yourself? It’s a gift we buy ourselves to reward all of our hard work over the holiday season. It’s all about taking a moment to treat yourself.
Treating myself normally involves clothing! With the holidays coming there are so many times I need to have something great to wear.
One of my favourite things to wear are skirts in the winter. I know most people stay away from them in the winter because of the obvious – it’s frigid outside! Day or night, it’s extremely cold! I try not to let that stop me, and I look for ways to dress up a skirt, and keep warm in this cold weather.
The Zara at Upper Canada Mall has so many great finds right now! I felt like I could have spent all day shopping there. I picked up this great skirt in olive green for only $17.90. The skirt was actually suprisingly warm, and although I could have paired it with nylons, I chose thigh-high boots I already owned to keep my legs warm and cozy.
My bow tie top is not only a very popular look for this winter, but I loved the detailing on this version! It had these great accordion sleeves, and I know it would look great with jeans was well, or even dress pants for work. I purchased this top at Zara for $49.90, but I couldn’t find it online so I linked to a similar one.
I truly can’t get enough of plaid blanket scarves, but this one is on a whole other level. The beige, almost on the verge of mustard colour, complimented the green skirt and cream coloured top so well! It’s such a large scarf I could practically wear it as a jacket, but once folded it can just accessorize an outfit or jacket. At $19.99 from H&M there was no way I could pass it up.
Do you wear skirts in the winter as well, or do you only wear them when it’s warm outside? Let me know your thoughts on wearing skirts in the winter in the comments below.
Upper Canada Mall is located at 17600 Yonge Street, Newmarket, and you can visit them online here.
Thanks to Upper Canada mall for providing me one of their gift cards so I could shop for this post!
