With frost on the ground in the morning and the changing colours of the season, it can only mean one thing: winter is coming and its time to get out your cozies. Stephanie recently moved to a new house that backs on to Ancaster's gorgeous Conservation Area, so we thought it'd be fun to be oh so Canadienne and go for a hike. We took along some of Jacklyn's old Brownie cameras to capture the scenery. We know what your thinking.. Hiking? These girls? Well, sort of. We put on our Cougar boots and sashayed through the brush, Brownies and binoculars in hand.


The cameras are so cute, and often come in these leather carrying cases. Jacklyn uses them, along with her binoculars her grandfather gave her, as book ends allowing her to display her collection and adds an eclectic feel to her living room.


We love our Cougar boots. Long before Uggs, this Canadian company warmed the masses. Who doesn't remember the iconic Pillow boot? There's a heartfelt, nostalgic quality to them. We were charmed by the holiday feel of the new video on their site. We found photos of our moms wearing Cougar boots in the late seventies, in this effortlessly cool way; loosely laced, boot tonque tied down, with leg warmers. Jacklyn loves her Regal biker style rainboots paired with a Roots dress and vintage belt  Incredibly warm, the rainboots are polar fleece lined, and stay waterproof well into freezing temperatures. But we think they're just perfect to wear to a music festival. What better way to stomp through mud than in style?



Stephanie and her mum spent much of her childhood bickering over fashion versus function when it came to winter boots. Her mum wanted her to be warm, Stephanie wanted to be stylish. After countless winters she's learned that fashion isn't fun when your toes are frozen. Lately she's been longing for a classic winter boot; tall and laced, shearling lined, rubber soled. This Ringo Star version fits the bill, and are perfect for taking the pooch out for walks on the trails. Also on her wish list ard the Rider rainboots. She loves the sleek, simplicitic riding boot design.
