1. Warm winter coat

There are some great winter coats on offer, but one in particular to consider is the Canada Goose Kensington Parka.  The Kensington parka fits the bill for keeping you toasty warm while managing to retain a sense of style. It’s a form-fitting, feminine winter jacket offering great protection against the winter elements. It keeps you warm without adding unnecessary bulk to your silhouette. Long and slim-fitting, the Kensington is insulated with 625 fill power white duck down and features a two-way adjustable, fleece-lined down hood with a removable coyote fur ruff, making it equally appropriate for strolling a city street or hiking a snowy trail. The practical storm flap that covers the front zipper is dotted with stylish military buttons, while the waist is drawn in snugly with adjustable straps. Recessed storm cuffs and fleece-lined pockets keep your wrists and hands cozy. The high-shine, polyester/nylon fabric adds a touch of flair.  Four sets of outer pockets provide great storage options which is always great to have when little ones are in tow.

2. Down sweater vest

On days where a heavy coat isn’t required, and you have an active afternoon ahead of you, having a warm down vest fits the bill. The Patagonia Down Sweater Vest  is a great option.  This offers the perfect warmth for just about everything. It is lightweight, windproof, and fine-tuned with a new 100% recycled polyester ripstop shell, 800-fill-power Traceable Down, and now comes with an improved fit.

3. Base layer thermals

Thermals are essential on bitterly cold days and amongst our favorites is the Helly Hansen base layer. Helly Hansen offers the best wool base layer on the market. This is the natural choice to stay warm in sub zero environments. This baselayer features two different layers; the inner Lifa® fibres ensure you stay dry, while the outer, soft Merino wool adds warmth and comfort. This means you get extreme insulation and superior evacuation of moisture.

4. Gloves

Warm gloves, scarf and hat, will complete your winter gear. Amongst my favorites is the UGG Australia turn cuff gloves . Stay warm and fashionable with this turn cuff glove, featuring a genuine sheepskin exposed cuff. Teamed with a warm scarf and hat you are ready to go.

5. Hat and scarf

Lastly, keep yourself warm and toasty with a good scarf and hat combo.  One of my favorites is the UGG Bias Hat and Scarf setWith your winter wardrobe fully prepared you can continue to enjoy the outdoor fun with your little one.  Need stuff for your baby? Check out our 5 Winter Stroller Essentials
