Bunny Flats

  
There is always something about a quirky novelty shoe that brightens up my day. These bunny flats by Kate Spade have been on high rotation since nabbing them this past Fall. I admit, at first although I loved them I was unsure exactly how much I’d wear them; but sure enough, I treat them as a neutral flat with a cotton tail and they make their appearance every so often. 

These are comfy to boot with soft brushed suede and a fuzzy pom pom tail. Perhaps even cuter than the tail- the spade nose, the tiniest gold accent. The only unfortunate thing about these is that they are so light I can only wear them when it is completely dry outside, or indoors only. I know it is only January, but I can’t wait for spring to some so these can accompany me as I hop all around town. 

Anyway, are you a novelty shoe fanatic or would you rather keep it classic and cool? Let me know in the comments below. Happy weekend! 

Summer Alternative

One of my favourite pieces to wear in the summer -when sandals just won’t work, is a good pair of espadrilles. They’re casual cool, comfy and if you find the right pair can be the focus of an outfit. I love this pair I picked up (sometime last winter, because funnily enough, that is how I function) from Tory Burch. They’re made of buttery soft leather that seem to dress up the overall aesthetic of the shoe. I think it is a great alternative to regular canvas that shows wear and tear much more noticeably. In a way, they remind me of those Chanel espadrilles that everyone seems to be obsessed with lately. Simple colour blocking, similar material, shape, cut, but a quarter of the price. Don’t get me wrong, I love the Chanel as well but as for now, I’m letting these Tory’s steal my heart.

What do you love to wear during the summer when sandals aren’t an option?

OOTD: feat. One Teaspoon

I love weekends. Who doesn’t? Time off work to (attempt to) relax, check things off my to-do list, spend time with friends, and perhaps most importantly, wear all the things I love that I could never get away with at work. Like these ripped jeans for example.

Last weekend I went out for an afternoon of shopping, lunching and of course, Starbucks with a friend. It was abnormally beautiful out for this time of year- 14 degrees is practically Summer weather here. So, embracing the gorgeous day, I opted for a few favourites.

So what was I wearing? My One Teaspoon Freebird II denim in blue blonde. One Teaspoon is quickly turning into a favourite of mine as far as distressed denim goes. These have a bit of a slouchy fit to them and are quite relaxed. I love the “make you look twice” type of distressing, it is not quite as heavily done as some of their other denim. Also there are zippers in the legs, something which I never thought I’d go for. This pair of jeans has an absolutely stunning wash and is so completely unique to my wardrobe I am loving every second I get to slip them on. Though they are a little big, I’d suggest to anyone to stay true to their own size.

I also took my Ferragamo Vara ballerina sneakers out for a stroll. I treated myself to these in a sale just after Christmas. The Vara ballerina sneakers are some of my absolute favourites design wise. I have a few pairs of them in different colours and am already thinking of more to collect. They are COMFORTABLE as heck, and still give off a polished-casual type look. In my opinion, one of Salvatore Ferragamo’s best styles, but just as a heads up, they run a tad small compared to other SF shoes, I have taken all of mine in half a size up.

I also brought out one of my favourite Louis Vuitton’s, embracing the sunny weather.

Taxi!!! Shoe Review

With the way I have been going lately, these Kate Spade Taxi Flats are more than appropriate. Be it running between classrooms, gym, groceries or just out for general errands, these flats have been working there wheels in many ways.

It felt impossible to find these and I feel pretty excited and lucky to finally have a pair. I know that this style was released quite a while ago, and most recently in gold for the holidays, but when the original patent yellow was made available again, I pounced quickly (and barely landed on a pair). It isn’t like me to buy a shoe in patent leather, and though I enjoy the look of it, I never seem to do well with the stiffness of the shoe. However, these have proved to be quite comfortable. After reading some reviews online I was a little hesitant about sizing- everyone saying they pinch and to go up half a size, but I followed my gut and went with my true size (7) and they have been more than fine.

I’m looking forward to wearing these again and again. Kate Spade does such great novelty work and the compliments I’ve received on this pair have been endless. Go pick them up, I think you need a pair too!
