Leave it to our 2023 Rookie of the Year, Nicole Williams English, to expertly blend swimwear and snow gear aesthetics into one fabulous outfit.

On Jan. 9, the Canadian model, mother and designer shared an Instagram carousel of herself wearing a strappy bikini top from her brand’s collaboration with SI Swimsuit. She paired the red Nia Lynn swim top with a black snow suit, featuring blue piping down the sleeves. In the first pic, Williams English posed with one shoulder out of the suit, and accessorized with a furry black hat and oversized silver hoop earrings.

The 40-year-old was also photographed leaning against a wooden fence, kneeling in the snow and holding a red cup of Tim Horton’s coffee.

“Stole my moms vintage snowsuit from the 60’s 🇨🇦,” Williams English noted of her vintage garment in the caption.

Plenty of Williams English’s 2.3 million followers chimed in to the comments section to not only hype up her beach-meets-snow-day look, but to also praise their favorite coffee chain.

“As a girl born and raised in Toronto (now living in Miami)… this outfit (and Timmies) makes my ❤️ happy!” one person wrote.

“Simply so gorgeous 😍,” Tatianna Merritt gushed.

“Mom goals for real! ❤️😍,” the official Milani Cosmetics account added.

“It’s the Tim Hortons for me!!” another fan cheered.

A few of the photos were also shared on the Nia Lynn Instagram page, where the caption read: “Who says you can wear swimsuits in the snow? ❄️ 🇨🇦@justtnic.”
