Victoria Weekend Photo Diary

Ironically enough, I spent Victoria Day (and a couple days before) in Victoria, British Columbia. A couple posts ago, I mentioned that I shared in the joy and celebration of my brother’s marriage. While I am still trying to gather pictures from the weekend’s main event, I have a couple pictures I uploaded via Instagram (@talktomyshoes) that I thought I’d share on here as well. Most of them are taken from my whale watching adventure but regardless, it is still a bit of a peek into a few days well spent.


I had an amazing time being a bridesmaid for my new sister-in-law! She made the bouquet herself, beautiful isn’t it?

When we arrived in Victoria on the first afternoon, I spent some time with family just watching the float planes land in the harbour. I think E was practically in heaven! 10931163_10101164765523566_602976974343377081_n

Because my dad and I are BFF’s and total (proud) dorks, we did not stop ourselves from taking our selfies- even on our whale watching adventure. I thought that I would end up with more selfies on that trip than pictures of whales- thank goodness someone has better whale-capturing-photography-skills than I because all my pictures sucked. Selfie included. Whale pictures to be shared soon. Dad’s hat by Coach haha! 11165324_10101158047636266_6848398111129700494_n

Meet Plumpy, the harbour seal. I thought we were pretty good friends but I found it awkward he kept reading out for wet hugs and flaring his nostrils at me. Nevertheless, we got along quite well. 11168019_10101171237902866_942024317164114241_n

A little outfit of the day action on our catamaran. So what am I wearing? Layers upon layers because the ocean is breezy. Oversize sweater from Aritzia, and a pink lulu shirt you can see popping out underneath (also a tshirt that reads “It’s getting haute in here” and a tank underneath. Told you I went nuts on the layers). Scarf by Tory Burch, Sunglasses by Chanel. Leggings by TNA and some of my favourite flats by Salvatore Ferragamo. Burberry crossbody. 11206019_10101152030589476_2360690808018268844_nFunny to end with one of the first things I did but the windswept look really captures a lot of the weekend. We took a little harbour taxi- so cute!- on our way to an accidental mid-day lounge hopping fest. Wearing my Tory Burch Scarf, Chanel Sunglasses and Trench and Crossbody by Burberry.

Anyway, I am hoping to have more pictures to share with you soon. Life has really kicked up its pace and has been incredibly busy for me lately. Unfortunately/fortunately it can be expected to be that way for a while. I’ll still be trying my best to update as regularly as possible. As I gradually share some posts I’m sure you’ll see a little more of what is going on. Looking forward to some great things to come!

I hope that you’re all doing excellent, thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to say hello in the comments section! I always love hearing from each of you!

Travel Style: May Long Weekend

As I previously mentioned, I recently returned from an amazing weekend in Victoria. With all of the posts on travel style I have been doing lately, it only seems natural to share with you what I wore on Monday as I made my way home.

Talktomyshoes Travel

If you have read any of my travel style series, you’ve probably picked up on a few of my choices of accessories in this picture; comfortable flats by Salvatore Ferragamo that are easy to slip on and off at security, my Gucci duffel bag that is more spacious than anything I own, and a small Burberry crossbody that is versatile and easy to tuck into my big duffel bag. Just practicing what I preach.

I also just wanted to share this view that I snapped as I flew over the Rockies on Monday afternoon. Only in Canada can you get such a view.

I hope everyone is doing great, Friday will be here soon enough!

Bridesmaid Shoes

I’m finally back after an absolute whirl wind trip! I spent the last couple of days out on Vancouver island, attending my brother’s wedding, hangin’ out with family, eating great food, whale watching, and, battling the worst cold I’ve had in ages. My last few days have been absolutely incredible and I had a tremendous time. You can expect some pictures of what was going on with me in the next few days but for a sneak peek of what I was up to, don’t hesitate to check out my Instagram (@talktomyshoes).

Jimmy Choo Milla

Anyway, last Friday my brother got married and I finally was able to debut the footwear that I have been hiding from you for months. And they say I can’t keep a secret…! As soon as I was told that I needed gold shoes for my bridesmaid outfit I immediately was set on the “Collar” design by Jimmy Choo. I picked these up, and the matching Milla clutch when I was in Scottsdale a couple of months ago. I’ll be sure to take some pictures of my own pair but just couldn’t bare to wait any longer, shoes are for sharing after all. Don’t worry, I’ll give you a review and more details soon enough.

Jimmy Choo Collar

I hope that everyone had an amazing long weekend! Tuesday is nearly over, Friday will come soon enough!
