I guess someone didn’t tell Mother Nature that it’s May, but hey – that’s Spring in Montreal for ya! To help you get through it, here is a list of essentials for this time of year:
1- The Gym Fleece Crewneck from Frank & Oak: Super comfy & warm – sure to protect you from the cold, not to mention you’ll look ultra stylish wearing it with denim & a tailored coat to give it that sport/classy look. Or, wear it with a blouse underneath, trousers and a heel – omg, look patent pending – lol :P Get $30 off your 1st month of the style -shop here: www.frankandoak.com/invite/
2- Structured coat (this one if from Zara’s last season): Amazing piece that goes with absolutely everything; highly recommend a minimalist, structured coat in your closet for temperatures below 15C. Any neutral tone is perfect, but if you’re daring, a pop color works too (psst. red will be trending this Fall)!
3-Women’s Kensington Chelsea Rain boots from Cougar: Protect your feet from the rain and from blisters with these ultra comfy & stylish rain boots! I’m usually not a fan of rain boots as the feet get no breathing room, but these boots are different! I wore them all day long and my feet were breathing just fine. These are by far my fave – so easy to match with everything for Spring, easy to pull on & off, perfect shield from the rain AND everyone at work was jealous when they arrived in the mail – so I highly recommend ;)
4- Kate Light Wash High Rise Distressed Skinny Jeans from Dynamite: A great fitting pair of jeans can go a long way! Honestly, some of my favorite pairs of jeans come from Dynamite – I know right? Everyone is always surprised but they make some good & flattering jeans! These are my faves – the color, the cut, the rips – all perfect.
5- Wireless earophone from Sudio Sweden: The perfect headphone to take with you on a walk, to the gym or to listen to music in the waiting room of a car garage – they last up to 8 hours. The fact that they are wireless makes them so easy to wear! I tired to connect them to my iphone, ipad & laptop – worked on all devices. Plus, it has a built in microphone so I use them to make calls on the bluetooth instead of risking a ticket (right Montrealers?) Plus, you can get 15% off your purchase with the following discount code: workingchix – Who doesn’t love a bargain? ;) You can get them here: https://goo.gl/KEkw05
6- Cross body bag from DKNY via Shopbop: As much as I love carrying my life with me, I prefer comfort, so I usually opt for cross-body bags to carry only the essentials and have my hands free to browse a clothing rack or pick up groceries – so easy! Plus, most of the crap we carry, we don’t even need – who’s with me?
