Rather than calling this post, OOTD, I feel like I should more necessarily rename it to “OOEOD” Outfit of Every Other Day. How many times have I thrown on this summer combo? Too many. Once I get my act together and post some more pics from my adventures you’ll see what I mean. But really, this Rag and Bone chambray skirt that I got in NYC last summer still remains to be an absolute favourite of mine. It is so light, flouncy, feminine and versatile that it has had a lasting impression on me since purchase. Paired together with my favourite white sweater “crop” (okay. I don’t really do crops because I lived through the 90’s once before and have no desire for nostalgia, but I have bought this top three times in different colours. It is like an adult acceptable version of the trend) it really turns into the ultimate easy-polished summer outfit. Accessorized with one of my most used bags- my Gucci disco Soho, the ultimate pair of slides by DVF, and of course, a Griffin helicopter to toughen up my look, this is just another perfect variation of my favourite summertime go-to.
The other weekend I had some fun and was able to take perhaps what is my favourite pair of shoes out for a spin (I said perhaps, I’m not sure if I have a favourite pair, but these are so special and absolutely killer that they, in this moment, deserve that title). I originally bought these accessories for my brothers wedding back in 2015 and love them so much.
Jimmy Choo’s Collar design, though it looks absolutely deadly to some, is one of the most comfortable pairs of shoes I own. I love how my feet feel securely caged in and that the shoe zips instead of laces up. I put them on and my feet are ready for a night of dancing without worrying about them coming undone. The platform adds that extra cushy comfort that I feel is completely necessary to a sandal like this, and the champagne colour… well need I say more?
You may remember my clutch from some of my posts last summer while in NYC. I particularly love the versatility of this little bag. It has a detachable shoulder-length chain that turns the clutch into a little crossbody number if needed- or double the chain to make a chic shoulder piece. The texture is durable, and the colour is the most perfect champagne gold that goes with absolutely everything. I’ve brought this out for numerous occasions, and worn it with everything from bridesmaid dresses to jeans and a blazer. It is a serious winner and I only wish that I owned it in black and other colours as well.
Anyway, I am headed down to Calgary for a little Stampede action later this week and am looking forward to putting together some great outfits and coaxing people into taking a few pictures. I hope everyone is having an amazing summer this far. Happy Fourth of July to my beloved Yankee readers! Love.
I happily caved into these, well, quite a while ago now. Adidas Superstars are like wearing a throwback to the ninth grade on your feet, only now, you look totally chic matching them with your favourite blush Prada bag on your elbow. I know that they have been back for quite a while (err, I actually know for a fact that they never left), and I couldn’t be happier. This sneaker trend is great, my collection has grown tenfold, my feet feel like they are walking on marshmallows and I have constantly been prepared for impromptu baseball games, runs, and whatever else my silly self tends to get up to. The other perk? These are the only shoes E really likes to wear, so at last, he is kinda fashionable too! Hehehe!
I’m off to Italy in a couple of weeks and I am 99.9% certain that these are coming with me. I think that they are going to travel really well. I can’t wait to pair them with a sleek midi dress and a baseball hat.
Anyway, now I want to hear from you. Are you on board with the Superstar trend? Or is it sooooo ninth grade? Thoughts on athleisure chic? Good travel shoe recommendations? Anything, anyone?
Isn’t it amazing what you can be completely amused by on Pinterest? Also, Cinderella is my favourite.
