Winter Pastels and Rok Cork

It took a while to arrive, but winter is here in full frigid force! I have a few different winter coat styles that I’ll wear over the next few months (as well as share on the blog), but this one might just be my favourite. Just because the weather is grey and gloomy doesn’t mean I have to be! I love wearing pastels in the winter and this coat looks great with my new Rok Cork bag!

4433Coat: Sentaler, Toque: SimpleSmiles & Co, Handbag: Rok Cork, Shoes: Le Chateau, Jeans: Hudson

My Sentaler shawl collar wrap coat may not be warm enough for the ski slopes, but it’s perfect for winter walks, running errands or as an elegant topper for a night out. The dusty rose colour is gorgeous and the super-fine alpaca wool keeps me cozy without sacrificing style.

For this look, I paired my pastel pink coat with a fluffy knit toque by Toronto-based knitwear band, SimpleSmiles & Co. and my latest shoe pick from Le Chateau. I always opt for black boots so this time, I picked out a pair in soft taupe suede with criss-cross strap details and a cozy faux-fur lining! Like my matching bag? Keep reading to see how you can WIN one!


This fabulous purse is stylish in a soft-lavender grey, functional with a spacious satchel shape and eco-friendly made with 100% Portuguese grown cork – yes you read that right – CORK!

I didn’t believe it until I experienced it for myself, but Rok Cork handbags are soft, lightweight, water repellent and luxurious – not to mention sustainable! Over time, the cork becomes even more durable and it’s super easy to clean!
