Let’s be honest; I had no idea how motherhood would impact my fashion choices… but it’s fair to say that unless we are expecting company (10 days into our journey with a newborn) I’m wearing the same thing he’s wearing: a diaper and no top.
So, here is a roundup of my favourite layering pieces for fall and the transition into winter!
The teddybear coat is definitely on trend, but I picked up one from Chance and Fate that is long and cozy, with just the right amount of cuddle. This color gray stands out from the rest of the sherpa coats we’re seeing this season. Mine is pretty much identical to the one pictured below:
A classic utility jacket is the perfect layering piece for lighter chills and it has all the pockets a no-handbag wearing new-mom could ask for.
I have an amaaaazing coat similar to this, which I got at a clothing swap for freeeeee. It’s still a go-to! I am also a fan of layering my easy leopard print blazer over plain black to take the ‘lounging at home’ look to a slightly elevated, ready-for-visitors level.
H&M Down Jacket
($199) Last but not least, I invested this season in a puffer coat; try this one in charcoal, or (like I did) try the H&M army green calf-length version for maximum protection from the elements. I love how airy-light it is, while also being roomy enough to zip baby into the front while he is in a carrier.

Speaking of baby, here is our little fox. Thanks for bearing with me while I make this transition into the busiest, craziest job I’ve ever had. xo
What is Super Mario’s favourite fabric?
Denim, denim, denim.
Sing it to the Nintendo tune. It’s a terrible joke, but it pops Into my head every time I think about wearing this gorgeous denim trench. The Canadian tuxedo, denim on denim, is the quintessential Canuck fashion choice. Pair a trench with great boots from Clarks (complete with orthotics), some basics and a cool attitude and it’s an outfit that works as well with a belly as without.
Purposefully did no touching up on these photos. We all need a bit more realness, right?
Also, I’m not super keen on matching my shoes to my handbag. obvs. All my fashion choices are practical – Can I walk in these shoes? Am I warm enough? If I get too hot, can I take some of this off? Can I sit and eat a massive meal in these, as baby kicks me in the guts, and still feel comfortable? If yes, proceed.
Cheers to you and hoping for many blue skies ahead.
