Farewell Summer

Today is the first day of September and you can tell. I woke up to it being nearly freezing outside and wanted nothing more than to just bundle up. Of course I knew that by noon the day would feel warmer so I did my best to avoid a sweater. Anyway, though we technically have 20 days or so until it is officially Autumn, this time of year is automatically Fall for me.

So, as a nod to the beautiful Summer and sunshine we enjoyed over the last couple months, a pair of Castaner jean espadrilles in bright colours as we part ways with this season and embrace the next.

What was your favourite part of the Summer? Are you looking forward to Autumn? If you haven’t figured it by now, it’s when the weather cools down that is my favourite.

OOTD: Plenty of Neutrals

I snapped this shot on my way out the door last night before heading to the football game. It was a pretty warm night for the end of Summer, but with the Alberta weather being as fickle as it is, I thought I better bring a few extra layers to bundle. Totally unnecessary in the end but if I didn’t come prepared, I’m sure it would’ve turned blustery cold.

Reva Flats

So what am I wearing? A pair of skinny jeans so old I’m not sure how they came into existence- but totally stoked that they are still a beautiful dark wash. Belt- Wilfred. Scarf- Tory Burch. Flats- Tory Burch “Reva”. This is the old style of the shoe with a little bit of elastic at the heel, TB has recently changed the style to a more stiff flat without an elastic backing. Certainly a better design but takes a bit longer to break in. Bag: Jimmy Choo. I love this bag that converts into a clutch. The pony hair is so soft and it is great how it zips up. Also, it holds everything you really need while remaining nice and light.

I hope everyone is having a happy Saturday! I’m not really able to relax this weekend as the general chaos ensues, however, I did take time for a little Starbucks treat this morning! Take care and don’t forget the magic pineapples!

Five Pairs: Alexandre Birman

I’m 10,000% positive that I could go on about Alexandre Birman’s designs for hours without stopping to take a breath. Seriously, the designs are so current, chic, yet versatile, lending us their use for seasons to come. This morning I’ve gone through quite the struggle in just picking five designs to share with you for Autumn- more specifically, five pairs of ankle boots (ok four pairs of ankle boots one pair of chunky sandals) to keep us fashion forward and our feet happy as the weather cools down.

Each pair that I’ve picked is unique in their own way but this certainly is not an exhaustive list. I totally recommend you checking out Saks or Bergdorfs for further designs- or just doing a quick search on Alexandre Birman, you won’t regret it! Now without blabbing on any longer, five pairs by A.B that we all should all impulse buy for Fall.

Words of Wisdom

I haven’t had a chance to do any of my little “Words of Wisdom” posts over the last few weeks due to a busy schedule. So, this morning, I thought I’d share this one with you that was meant to go up last Sunday. This one isn’t fashion related but they are still great words to go by.
