Every year Mr SF and I come to Montreal for 4 to 5 weeks around mid November to mid December. We spend most of our days doing Yoga, walking and enjoying the city. I also do some shopping. I live in a small rural town with limited shopping opportunities.

I have one week left and I have done a lot of research. I am still considering a couple of items. So far I have bought the following items:

1/ Orange Scarf - mine is cotton and is not from COS. It is the same colour as find from COS.
2/ Chocolate Brown Scarf - this was a fail. It is alpaca and my face exploded. Mr SF is now wearing it.
3/ Denim Sailor Pants (Citizen Vintage) - These are a similar cut to the Jesse Kamm pants. I still want the Jesse Kamm ones. However, these are a substitute until next year.
4/ Lole fleece lined leggings - a necessity in Montreal.
5/ Hue no bind knee highs - the only ones I can wear

I am still looking for warm boots that look nice and are comfortable. There are a couple of candidates. Maguire (Rachel) in Chocolate Brown is one (see picture) and two others that are made in Montreal.
I am also considering a pair of green cord sailor pants (Citizen Vintage).
I was hoping to find one or two warm sweaters that were tailored or more close fitting. No luck. I may end up ordering the cashmere from Everlane.

I made a few changes to my skincare routine after the incident with the alpaca scarf. My face was on fire and bright red. I had some cream for eczema from the derm but I needed more. I bought Avene cleanser for redness and Avene cream for redness. I had used the cream before. I was very impressed. Very soothing.
I am also using LaRoche Posay mascara. No irritation to my eyes and it actually does something to my lashes!! I love it.
