Happy New Year everyone! I hope your 2022 is off to as good of a start as we can hope for in these tricky times. There’s been some disappointing news here in Ontario with closures and restrictions back in place but I hope you’re still able to find some joy throughout the day. I loved this sentiment about a New Year’s Resolution to enjoy our “nicest” things, regardless of the occasion. Count me in!

The first post of the year is a light one and I hope this roundup of reader favourites brings you a bit of style inspiration and *maybe* even the motivation to get dressed in something that helps you feel your best.

Now onto Style Bee Reader Favourites from December & a bonus style session using this months items!

1 // THE CANADA SCARF – This piece is hands down my favourite winter accessory. I’ve got it over my shoulders as I type this! It also comes in navy, black and a gorgeous caramel brown.

2 // LYDELL MIXED MEDIA COMBAT BOOT – These were an option I shared as an alternative to an old pair of combat-style boots I have. I love the proportions of this boot, the tall shaft is great for styling with different pant lengths and the ribbed ankle material looks like it would be super comfortable.

3 // THE PIMA MICRO RIB TURTLENECK – This was a favourite option last month too and I’ve been wearing my own collection of these non-stop this winter. The fit is true to size and I really cannot recommend them enough as a base/thermal layer. They’re fully stocked in black, white and grey.

4 // THE DREAM PANT – I shared this in this workwear style roundup and think they’re a great option for a workwear capsule. With a silk shirt, sweater blazer and a pair of glove boots they’d be perfect for any type of corporate setting.

5 // HARDCOVER SPIRAL NOTEBOOK – Appointed makes my absolute favourite office stationary and notebooks. I’ve been using their planners, notebooks, journals and other office organization tools for many year. Shop the full collection here.

6 // MARLED CAMP SOCKS – No winter wardrobe is complete without some cozy camp socks. I’ve had a few pairs of these marled camp socks for years now and they’re still a favourite for inside my winter boots.

7 // THE PERFORM LEGGING – I don’t know what I’d do without these leggings. They’re an essential thermal layer in the winter and my go-to for activewear all year round. I shared them in this post on winter layering 101 and it seems like they fit the bill for a lot of readers.

8 // ORGANIC COTTON FRENCH TERRY CREWNECK & JOGGER (On sale!) – This set has been in my weekly rotation since September. I’m a huge fan of matching lounge sets for weekends and after work to signal relaxation time while still offering elevated simplicity.

9 // MODERN BRETON STRIPE TEE – I have the toasted almond and black version (nearly sold out) and honestly, if I was ordering over again, I’d go for the black and white instead. It’s such a classic and the boxy, slightly cropped shape feels fresh and contemporary. With jeans and heels under an oversized cardigan or blazer, c’est parfait.

10 // CASHMERE COCOON CARDIGAN – This is a month over month favourite and it’s certainly a personal one of mine too. You can read a full unsponsored review here and use LEE15 for 15% Off any Jenni Kayne order, anytime!

11 // BLUNDSTONE 1673 CHELSEA BOOT – This was a surprise favourite for the month since I’ve only shared a link to these boots once, in this post. That said, we are definitely in Blundstone season here in Ontario and this style is a great option for the city if you want something practical but still a bit elevated.


Here are a few ways I’d style this month’s favourites into outfits!

1 – The Canada Scarf + The Cocoon Cardigan + The Pima Micro Rib Turtleneck + The Dream Pant + The Combat Boot

2 – The Cocoon Cardigan + The Breton Stripe Tee + The Perform Legging + The Camp Socks + The Blundstone Chelsea Boots

3 – The Canada Scarf (as a shawl) + The Breton Stripe + The French Terry Jogger + The Camp Sock + The Combat Boot

4 – The Pima Micro Rib Turtleneck + The French Terry Crew (over shoulders) + The Dream Pant + The Blundstone Chelsea Boot


There were a few favourites that have mostly sold out so I didn’t include them in the list. The most notable ones were: The Dayana Water Resistant Stretch Bootie (a rollover favourite from last month), The Oversized Blazer, Wool & Recycled Cashmere Turtleneck Dress and The Averdon Herringbone Coat (another roll-over favourite).

    Chiming in from Florida to wish you a Happy New Year. I used to live in Boston, so your winter outfits are nostalgic to me, though I don’t miss the cold! Looking forward to your spring and summer selections. Love your corgi pictures; my grand-dog (my daughter’s corgi) looks just like yours. Keep up the good work; I always enjoy seeing your newsletter in my in-box. Warm regards from FL.

    Hi Lee,

    I appreciate your stying suggestion for the khaki sweatsuit separates. Do you sometimes wear them together, and do you like the bottoms and tops to be the same colour when you do?

    • Lee the Bee says:

      Thanks Susan 🙂 I usually wear them together actually, I should have included that option in my styling section, oops! I like to have a matching set for sure, then it’s a really easy one and done outfit, which comes in very handy for travel. I think it feels a touch more sophisticated than miss-matched loungewear and I feel more put-together. xo

    I’ve just discovered your blog and it resonates so well with me, I’m definitely going to be following. One thing I am disappointed to see, especially since you are Canadian yourself, is that you link to the US websites (I’m thinking Nordstrom in particular) not the Canadian ones. There must be a reason for this that I’m not aware of but it certainly makes looking for items inconvenient.

    • Lee the Bee says:

      Hi Andrea, Welcome! So glad you found your way here and my work resonates with you.

      Thanks for sharing this feedback. As the majority of my readership is US-based I tend to link to the US option. I’ll be sure to keep this in mind going forward and will try to include a Canadian link when an item is available. Sometimes it’s a time factor as linking product is more time consuming than it may seem.

      I hope you’ll be back lots as I do link directly to lots of Canadian brands on an ongoing basis. You can find a a very comprehensive shopping directory here as well. Cheers! xo

      Hi Andrea,

      I live in Canada too and my Nordstrom link from Style Bee takes me to the Canadian Nordstrom. I wonder if it has something to do with the settings in your device.

    • Lee the Bee says:

      Thanks for sharing this Susan.

      Andrea, I forgot to mention that usually sites with location detection will redirect to the right spot. Could be to do with your settings but I realize this may not be the case across all brands.

      Thank you Lee and Susan! I will definitely check my settings and location tracker, good to know:)
