What I Love: Not Camping

The other day during my outdoor shopping adventure I ended up at Sur le Table- an excellent cooking/kitchen store with endless amounts of kitchen crap that I’d never guess to exist. Among the pots, pans, peelers and whisks of all shapes and sizes, I found these napkins, which well, basically sum me up to a tee. Who else loves NOT camping?

What I Wore: Just the Other Day

This is actually the first outfit I wore in AZ on Saturday. I am loving the sunshine and how the backyard is in full bloom-great for snapping outfit photos that I’m usually too shy to take when I’m at home up north.

Sunnies: Jimmy Choo. Shirt: BCBG (last year) Shorts: Aritzia. Sandals: (take a better look at them here!) Tory Burch.

The shirt I’m wearing is one of my favourites- it is SO light and flowing, you’d never guess it is 90some degrees outside. It is made for this state.

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more Arizona adventure time! Also, don’t forget to follow me via Instagram @talktomyshoes and Twitter @talk2myshoes

Happy Easter to all of my readers!

I’m about to head out for brunch in the sunshine, this is my situation:

I’m taking pictures of all my crap to pass time! I’m also people watching. Currently: Everyone is being boring in the terminal and I am the only interesting person.

Also, when going through US customs:

Officer with perfectly calculated facial hair “Where are you headed?”

Me: “Arizona”

Officer with perfectly calculated facial hair, “Ok.”

Apparently that is all it takes for me to get into the States now…

#Selfie

Oh the shameless selfie… As I was awkwardly approached last week at work for a picture for the yearbook I felt myself tumble into some sort of awful pit of dread knowing that I would never approve of the picture to be snapped. Kind of funny for a girl who enjoys a good picture of herself (no shame here…). The thing is, I like being the one taking that picture, I like being in charge. I like knowing that I can sit or stand there until I get it right. The only other person I feel comfortable enough to get to snap a picture of me is my dad.

Needless to say, I approached my coworker in a frenzy worrying about them using that terrible picture (that I never even saw). She simply replied jokingly “Well why don’t you send me a selfie then.” Joke or not, I am taking her up on it.

This is what I came up with:

Last Week

Mickey Mouse Forever 21

April means I’m finally putting my boots away and replacing them with sandals, wedges and everything in between. I mentioned to you my new kicks from Forever XXI last week, but here they are after a full day of being shown off to the world. Lots of compliments, lots of comfy and certainly the cheapest pair of shoes I have ever bought.

I had a bunch of dresses fitted for me yesterday after work. I always love going to the tailor as I feel like some sort of model/princess/winner and I love the feeling of taking action over my wardrobe. I can’t wait to share with you when I pick them up! Leather to lace is on its way.
