OOTD: J.Crew Monk Strap

Just a quite OOTD! Or well, once again, Outfit of the Other Day earlier this week.

I posted my monk strap shoes I picked up at J.Crew a while ago now but I just wanted to share how I have been wearing them.

J.Crew Monk Strap Black

Styled with my favourite pair of skinny jeans and my red Louis Vuitton top handle. I try and keep things simple when I wear these shoes, I also had on a plain t shirt and chunky knit olive sweater from Wilfred. My muse definitely was Elin Kling that day.

Happy Friday to everyone and be sure to enjoy and relax this weekend! You deserve it!

Jimmy Choo FW’14

It has been a long time for me in waiting to post the Jimmy Choo FW’14 collection, and now that most of us are feeling that the Fall is here at last, I feel like we all can jump right into it together. Jimmy Choo has long been one of my very favourite shoe designers. Over the years, my collection of Choos has grown into a portion of my overall collection that I am very fond and very proud of. I always look forward to the emergence of a new collection, and what is on our plate for the upcoming season is no less than excellent.

I had a lot of trouble picking just my favourite ten pairs of shoes so I truly recommend that you head on over to the website for the full collection. But for now, the ten pairs that are making me lose my mind!

black anouk jimmy choo

Anouk is back and looking better than ever! The shoe staple is here with a variation of studs, suede and leather all in a smooth design and subtly flashy (is that a thing) print.

attila jimmy Choo

The collection includes a variety of prints on shoes. I particularly love this print- also found on sandals and pumps, as the colours are just so easy to work with.

jimmy choo antique

Mirrored leather has often been a staple in the most recent collections by Jimmy Choo so why should this season be different? The Mirrored leather is now available in “antique” which seems to have a more tarnished silver appearance.

karla jimmy choo

The Karla sandal has been now released in a variety of finishes. This one shown is “black amber” and is also available in an array of different shoe designs.

jimmy choo lust

Each shoe collection needs a statement shoe or, “Statement Choo” as I’d like to think, perhaps this Lust design with pvc, crystal detail and a thick ankle strap is the turn your head twice shoe of the collection.

Jimmy Choo suede boot

Each year, I become more and more obsessed with boots it seams. And when we add Choo into the mix, I just lose all control. Hands down my favourite pair of boots to date are my Jimmy Choo Dyland biker boots that I have no less worn the crap out of since scoring them in NYC a couple summers ago. I chose to showcase this design in particular because of the cut out wedge. I feel that it is such a sleek design and the tiniest notch missing from the wedge makes the shoe just seem that much lighter. Also, that shade of suede….

Mimi Jimmy Choo

Lately Jimmy Choo has been really focusing on their Mimi design. Pictured above, the shoe is available in the same inky lace print that was displayed in the pair of flats above.

Lottie Jimmy choo Agean

One of my favourite things about the collection is how the most beautiful Agean blue is a focal point. It is certainly a shade that while it is meant for Autumn/Winter, it is more of a transitional colour which allows us to wear them year round in my opinion.

kasava jimmy choo

The Kasava pump out of the collection is no less than a fairy tale shoe. While many picture this shoe with the perfect dress or gown, I also see them balancing out that ripped up pair of boyfriend jeans I found myself living in for the majority of the Summer. My favourite part? The grey-blue gunmetal finish and the variation of textures.

At last I finish with a shoe- a Choo that I hardly need to say anything about. Instead, I’ll just ask you, aren’t they just to die for?

Paisley Pants: OOTD

My outfit of the day or outfit of the…. other day, if you will. This is actually an outfit I took a picture of late last week but haven’t been able to upload until now. I picked up these red silky-smooth paisley pants from Michael Kors last Summer and have loved finding fun ways to style them since. Sometimes they are a bit challenging to work with as they can quite easily look like a chic pair of pyjama pants, but that is all in the fun of them. You can see how I worked with them in my Vancouver Photo Diary post as well.

So what did I do? I pulled out a light white linen sweater by wilfred which has been a closet favourite for years. I paired the garmets with my oh-so-comfy Lanvin smoking slippers and added some of my favourite gold accessories- my Tory Burch stud earrings, a J.Crew necklace and my Michael Kors runway glitz watch.

I admit that the outfit is a little too fashion forward to 99.99999% of people here but I don’t mind the looks, it is nice to be comfortable without looking like a set of barn hands.

Friday Inspiration

I’m going to try and start sharing stuff like this a bit more. I always find myself taking saving ¬†pictures I like or find inspiring on instagram, or from all over the internet. Here is what I’ve been loving lately.

Lanny McDonald

From back in the day, Lanny McDonald rocking the most perfect layering of a hockey jersey ever, with the most amazing racing glasses. I love going for that kind of vibe so I am excited to have found how I am styling my jersey at the next hockey game I attend.

This is actually a piece of my own food porn. Dinner from a couple nights ago involved spinach, strawberry, soft cheese and pine nuts.

yoga balance

A yoga challenge that I have yet to try but like to pretend that I will totally get around to doing. If you love yoga check out @Prairiegirlsyoga on Instagram.

From the Best City in the World: Yahoo! My home town on a very sunny warm day (unlike today) during Stampede Week.

Sorry for the direct screen shot. But! What am I focusing on? The Hermes sandals of course.

oscar de la renta

From @KarlieKloss before Oscar de la Renta. I love the floral wall, and even more, the stuffed elephant. Fun fact: my favourite stuffed animal as a kid, which I am making it through life with, is an elephant named Elephant.

Karl Lagerfeld Karl Barbie

Karl Lagerfeld with the Karl Lagerfeld doll is easily one of my favourite things I have seen ever. This is something I’d love to have printed and put on a wall.

Jimmy Choo London Lion

Spotted in Trafalgar Square… Getting ready for London Fashion Week!

Need I say more about those sandals?

Thank you everyone for stopping by and I hope that you all have a very relaxing and happy weekend!
