On Trend | Game Day Style

When your wanderlust takes you back to home base it’s time to settle into a new stride, one with a more leisurely pace. We’re talking lazy Sundays, lounging for hours, and kicking up those travel-worn feet.

There’s no better way to indulge at home than throwing on a pair of comfy, cozy slippers. These are far from your run-of-the-mill pair (you know, the kind that only last one season). They have a plush pile-lined interior and our soft trademark suede. Plus a rubber sole means you can still venture outside, even if it’s just a few steps.

Guys, it’s time to indulge. Girls, it’s time to treat him. Superbowl Sunday is right around the corner, pick up a pair in rich chocolate or our classic brown. After all, uninterrupted downtime comes too far and few between to not be able to fully revel in all it has to offer.

Well Worn | DYLANA/SUAREZ

A single Minnetonka style can be worn a million different ways.  In our Well Worn series we spotlight unique individuals who seek to stand apart not only in what they wear but what they do.

For our winter lookbook Dylana from DYLANA/SUAREZ and Natalie from Natalie Off Duty took to the streets of New York to show us six ways to look cold-weather cool this season.

Today Dylana shares a few of her cold-weather style secrets along with a few of her favorite ways to spend a wintery weekend.

What inspired your cold weather style?
I wanted to find a way to give this preppier bootie a more sporty chic look, and worked the look around with this vintage sweatshirt. The tennis style mini and leather baseball hat were the final finishing touches. Overall the outfit felt sporty yet refined, which I feel suited the Chukka Wedge Booties perfectly!

What are a few of your winter wardrobe necessities?
I definitely can’t live without my long wool menswear coat, a thick knitted pom pom beanie and an oversized, cable knit turtleneck sweater.

Favorite weekend winter activities.
I love checking out the indoor food and shopping markets like Chelsea Market or the Brooklyn Flea. It’s always warm and cozy and full of delicious food and pretty decor. The perfect way to keep warm during the day.

Also hanging out and catching up with friends at a large beer garden is always really fun!  And a bundled up stroll around Central Park is also quite the treat in the winter time.

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 | Baked the Blog

Aisha from Baked the Blog
Location: Devils Peak Mountain Reserve – Cape Town, South Africa

Minnetonka’s iconic footwear has been seen around the world since 1946. Recently we launched our first global lookbook featuring the #MyMinnetonka style of 10 bloggers. Today we spotlight the Minnetonka style of Aisha from Baked the Blog.

Do. I love hanging out in the V&A Waterfront shopping mall. All my favourite shops are there but the vibe is sort of high street shopping meets high end market meets shopping mall. It has so much to offer! It’s got the perfect view of our beautiful mountain landmark and it’s right on the water with great events happening outside every weekend.

See. It’s a tie between Table Mountain and Camps Bay beach. Table Mountain is one of our most famous landmarks in our city and is great for those who are active and outdoorsy. You can take a cable car to the top of the mountain or hike up and enjoy lunch while overlooking our incredibly beautiful city. Camps Bay beach front is really vibey with street performers and lots of seaside restaurants. The white beaches and great view doesn’t hurt either.

Eat. NV80 Bar and Grill has the best service and food! I always leave their restaurant feeling incredibly happy.

Go. I love Paarl and Stellenbosch. It’s really quaint and picturesque on a summers day!

Shop. I do most of my shopping at the V&A Waterfront since they stock most of the international brands but they have recently launched a section dedicated to local designers which is really cool.
