Winters in Canada are definitely pretty chilly… but there are some perks to cold weather: skiing, skating and of course wearing great winter coats. Coats have always been one of my favourite garments and last year I was not able to bring them all to Scotland with me SO I have been loving wearing all my coats this winter, and I have even picked up a few new ones.
One of the new coats I picked up this winter is this navy teddy coat from GAP Factory. This was one of the last things I bought while I was working for GAP (marking the end of my six year GAP girl career).
What I love about this teddy coat is how cozy it is, I feel like I am wrapped up in a big blanket every time I wear it, and what is better than that on a cold day?! I usually wear a knit sweater or a turtleneck underneath for extra coziness, like my favourite J. Crew black turtleneck.
Unfortunately, GAP Factory does not have a website so here are a few similar coats:
One of the great things about teddy coats is that they can be worn with a casual or dressier outfit. I have worn mine with leggings going to yoga and on the opposite spectrum I have worn it with a dress and heels to a show at the Imperial Theatre!
In this outfit I am wearing a pair of GAP jeans (I’m pretty certain that I do not own any other brands of jeans) and my Bos & Co Belfield Boots in tan. My Bos & Co boots are perfect for winter too, they are waterproof (you don’t even have to spray them), warm, they have a thick sole rubber sole that is great for slippery side walks, AND they are so comfortable.
Well, here in New Brunswick we still have a bit of winter left so I know this coat will be worn a fair bit more this season! What are some of your favourite styles of winter coats?
