First snow

First snow

It’s always exciting when the first snowfall hits the ground. As I write this in my pyjamas, Ottawa is being dusted by a light sprinkling of snow, and it’s magical! A couple weeks ago while I was in Toronto, I wore this cozy casual outfit and styled gorgeous pieces from Pandora’s Winter 2014 Collection. The collection was inspired by stars, but there are also a few vintage-inspired pieces that are simply stunning and would make an amazing Christmas gift for any woman.

I’m wearing a mint cashmere sweater from Lord & Taylor, high-waisted jeans from American Eagle, over the knee boots from Chinese Laundry, a fur vest c/o Sheinside, vintage Salvatore Ferragamo leather clutch and jewelry c/o Pandora.

My favourite pieces from Pandora’s Winter Collection are definitely the Pandora sparkling lace pieces. The delicate crystal lace pieces have a Venetian feel, and that city is very close to my heart. The design comes as a ring, a necklace and earrings, so you can get a full set, but the Pandora sparkling lace ring is by far my favourite. It looks gorgeous as a cocktail ring, or as a statement for everyday wear. Each crystal is hand set, and the quality and design feels very luxurious.

I also love the galaxy theme of Pandora’s winter collection. The star charms are very pretty, while I’ve been wearing the Pandora star ring nonstop! If you’re looking for something minimalist, the Pandora cosmic stars ring is a beautiful baguette ring covered in white and blue crystals. I love wearing it on its own or stacked with other pieces.

These over the knee boots have been on my feet nonstop for the past few weeks. They can be dressed up with tights and a dress or down with a pair of jeans and leggings. I also love how warm they keep my legs! If you’re still worried about investing in the trend, jump at the chance. I agonized over buying the Stuart Weitzman version, but wasn’t 100% in love with the rounded toe and high price tag. When I saw this pair by Chinese Laundry that were tall, slim and made of super soft leather, it was a perfect match. I’ve been wearing them every day for a month, and they still look like new.

If you’re still wondering what to get your mother, girlfriend or sister, you can’t go wrong with cashmere and jewelry. They are both classic gifts, and the pieces I’ve featured from Pandora in this post are elegant and timeless.
