Why being a fashion blogger in the winter sucks

Grey jacket c/o Lovely Wholesale / Geo print sweater c/o Lovely Wholesale / Red plaid scarf from Forever 21 / Blue beanie from Aldo

Being a fashion blogger in Canada during the winter is horrible. I don't care what other people pretend to say, it's horrible.

If you don't live in a condo with a fancy lobby or have a whimsical-looking room, you're forced to go outside to keep up with the content while saying crap like, "It's only -10 degrees outside...that's doable!" If you look really closely, you can see my hand starting to turn blue. But I didn't get frostbite while taking these photos, so it was a good day.

On an average day with the windchill, it feels like -20. So no, I don't prance around in skirts with my jacket open. But when I spend most of my days cycling through sweaters and warm pants, I sort of look forward to these where I can dress up a bit, even for 10 minutes.

Follow on:


  1. I feel you, I cannot bring myself to go outside and take pictures. Mirror selfie photos until spring all the way!

  2. Wow, that's mighty cold...brrrr! Hey at least you look cute in your outfit, love the mix of prints you wore. :))


  3. It's so cold in NY too these days (not as cold as Canada though)! I can't wait for spring!

  4. I can't even imagine what I would shoot if it were super cold here in the winter! I mean, you can only own so many coats right? Speaking of which, yours is super cute! This is a gorgeous cold-weather look!

  6. Love this layering Sabrina! And your plaid scarf too!

  7. your outfit is seriously amazing! love it <3

  8. I don't know how you look this cute in that cold. I seriously can't go outside if it's -2. YOU ARE STRONG! ;)

  9. SO cold and you look like you're cool? How?! Love it!

  10. I can only imagine. I live in Australia and I even hate being a fashion blogger in winter! On another note this look is perfect, so well put together and classy.

  11. You look amazing! Love everything, but that scarf is so cool :)

  12. I agree with you, can't wait for warm weather to start and I hate to have pics taken when it's so cold ! Anyway, you looked beautiful :-)

  13. Oh I totally relate - I'm in Washington, DC (not Canada) but winters here are pretty bad too! It's times like this I think Californian fashion bloggers have it made!
    That said, you did a pretty fantastic job dressing for a cold day - you look so chic and the plaid scarf is very on-trend! Practical and cute!

  14. There has been a distinct lack of outfit posting on my blog for this very reason. I cannot bring myself to consider outfit posting when there is a consistent feel of -10 - 20 outside. Worst. Now if I had a brightly lit home studio... or, as you say, a whimsical room! perhaps things would be different.

  15. Ahh, I just couldn't agree with you more, being a fashion blogger in a place where winter actually is winter ( in minuses), because a lot of people in the warmer areas are complaining about the weather beeing cold when it is + 10 & +15!
    Anyways, you look very stylish, I love how you played with prints and patterns, everything looks so good together! :)

  16. You look awesome! Winter at your photos looks good :D

  17. Thank you for the comment on my blog!!

    Adore your outfit in this, love the scarf!! xx


  18. Haha I went to Montreal last year and I do know how terrible the winter is... Nice outfit ;)

  19. that is a very cute layered outfit, even if it didn't keep you warm enough! :)

  20. Being fashion/style blogger in the winter SUCKS SO MUCH! It's sooo hard to take photos when you standing there shivering!

  21. You are a CHAMP. Seriously. I had to shoot in 20-degree weather the other week and I thought I would die- meanwhile, you're up north totally in negative temps rocking out. Go, girl!

  22. I hate cold weather, -10 or -20 -degree is really cold...I've never been in Canada.....Recently the weather here is not too cold....Your look is perfect!! Eszter

  23. I always wanted to have winter here in the Philippines. Hahaha! But not as cold as -10 or -20. Well, i just want to experience snow. LOL. By the way, you look amazing even if you're cold during the photos are taken. Love your outfit!

  24. I love this look! The jacket and skirt are amazing! I agree with you on the whole winter and fashion blogger business though, it would be hard to go out for pictures when it is so cold.

  25. I completely agree! And then you see other people's ootd posts and they're wearing sandals, and skirts without the foot of snow and -20degree weather.

    Great look!
