Everyday Adventure | Treasures & Travels

The beginning of a new year brings fresh inspiration for finding new winter adventures.  We asked Vancouver based lifestyle bloggers Tegan, Bethany and Lindsay of Treasures & Travels to share with us their favorite ways to find adventure in the colder months plus a few of their style tips for staying warm while still looking cozy cool this winter.

Lindsay: I absolutely love cafe’s. There is nothing better than sitting in a cozy cafe on a cloudy day and sippin’ on a toasty coffee brew.

Gastown is one of my favourite places to explore in the winter time in Vancouver. The streets are lined with twinkling lights, there is hustle and bustle but in an old fashioned way. I love people watching as they wander on the cobblestone streets going from shop to shop, buying quality goods and groceries.

While exploring the city in the winter, I love pairing a simple dress with tights and high socks, which pair great with my mocs!

Bethany: One of my favourite things this time of year is going for walks all bundled up with my family.

We live in the woods and just through the park there is a coffee shop and amazing bakery, a little further down the road you hit the beautiful coast. There is something so breathtaking about the sand all frozen and covered in snow. We try to get our baby girl and puppy down there as often as possible.

My go-to style in the winter always involves layers. My winter uniform starts with my favourite black skinny jeans, usually a few baggy layers on top, and chunky scarves. A sort of boho look that pairs perfectly with my Outback hat.

Tegan:  My favourite thing to in the winter is explore my city! Sunday is my day off, so if it’s sunny, my husband and I love to just bundle up and head out our door, discover a new cafe, shop around Gastown, or head to our favourite brewery for brunch.

Since we do live in Vancouver, it rains a lot, so my other favourite winter activity is cozying up and watching movie marathons or a good series, obviously with some coffee and a big home cooked breakfast!

I would say my cold-weather style is mostly cozy. Especially this winter, being pregnant, comfort is a must! I live in big cozy sweaters, comfy shoes, toques and scarves!

Global Lookbook: Chaloth

Charlotte from Chaloth
Location: The Royal Dramatic Theatre – Stockholm, Sweden

Charlotte of Chaloth styled the Kilty Moc for our Global Lookbook using the iconic backdrop of The Royal Dramatic Theatre in Stockholm, Sweden.  Here she shares with us her favorite places to visit when in Stockholm!

Do.  There are many things I like to do in my free time in the city but mostly I love to go shopping or to just take a stroll around “Djurgården.”  The nature in the middle of the city is amazing and I especially love to go for a stroll in the fall.

See. Stockholm is a beautiful city and it’s hard to just pick one destination but I would say that it’s definitely a must-see to boat out to the archipelago. Since Stockholm is pretty much surrounded by water, it’s really beautiful in the summer.

Eat.  With no doubt Trattorian at Kungsholmen they have the best food! And also have a beautiful and really cozy environment.

Shop.  Östermalm, “Bibliotekstan” has all the best brands – like By Malene Birger, Stella McCartney and Filippa K and high street stores like Cos and & Other Stories.
