No, I’m just kidding, it technically is still Summer up here and I received this picture of my little brother this morning, outside, experiencing his first snow and probably wishing he had a pair of Uggs or Sorrels to throw on and keep his paws warm.
Meanwhile, where I actually am, I am enjoying the Fall weather that I have been waiting all Summer for. Today it poured rain and I got to take my newest Burberry trench out for a spin and paired it with my red Louis Vuitton top handle. I’ve said it many times before, I love this season. Autumn is my absolute favourite. Yes, I’ve been wearing boots and bundling up. Tomorrow I even plan on wearing a scarf.
It seems to me that boots have been on my mind all Summer. I know it makes no sense, but while everyone is walking around on slide in sandals, I am thinking about boots. I basically updated my boot collection this Summer which I will share with you in a later post, but for now, how about these over the knee suede boots from Zara? I know that over the knee was especially popular two or three years ago but I still don’t mind it when styled properly. I also like that this has a bit more of a square heel so they function as a flat shoe but will give a tiny bit extra height.
Also. This picture was taken about two weeks ago. No, you can’t see too many details but you can get the general idea of how cute my other new Burberry I got this past Summer is. Wearing: Coat- Burberry. Jeans- J.Brand. Shoes- Salvatore Ferragamo.
Thank goodness it is finally Saturday. This week has been so insanely busy filled with so many late nights I’ve just been exhausted. Now, at last, it is time to stop and share. I mentioned in my previous post that it is Stampede week in Calgary, there is only two days left so luckily I will be able to stop and breathe soon.
Tuesday night I had some sweet tickets to the infield of the chuckwagon races at the Randgeland Derby. If you haven’t figured between that and a trip to Ranahans, I’m all about having the best seats in the house.
On Thursday night I was lucky enough to see Shania Twain in concert. I’m not sure why she got such crap reviews in the Herald and Sun because she put on an awesome show. It is great to have her back after ten years of waiting…
Wearing: Sweet Shania Twain tshirt before bed. Michael Kors watch.
This was a really tough picture to take, after the show but I really wanted to get one in. After a couple hours of Shania bliss, I found a Hornet (or part of one) on the grounds. Airplanes- jets at this point aren’t much of a big deal for me as they are literally in my backyard ALLTHETIME. But, I needed a little something to send home.
Perhaps more interesting for some of you… Shirt: J.Crew. Denim Vest: Aritzia. Jeans: Citizens of Humanity.
While some of you may “Experience Regina” by attending a Roughriders game, making a sub-par attempt to shop at the Cornwall Centre, or best, just watching this video, I experienced Regina yesterday in full swing- driving down Highway One knowing I’d do well attending a few favourite places that don’t really have much to do with the city in the first place- Starbucks, Chapters and Moxies.
Taking the fall with me (or bringing Regina up to the next level) included a few pieces from J.Crew’s Spring collection, my trusty Louis Vuitton Hampstead and a pair of Tom Ford sunnies. I also wore an amazing white blazer that I picked up from Zara during my last trip home and my favourite Rag and Bone jeans. The shoes? I grabbed them in a smoking deal at Nine West while in Arizona last April.
Occasionally we get lost in the city (you know when you just feel like throwing the GPS completely out the window?) and end up on the most beautiful streets, filled with old oak trees and all sorts of greenery. Other times…. most other times… we realize we are in some sort of sketchy industrial area and need to get the heck out. Experiencing Regina once in a while is OK… Now if only I could experience New York or Paris again, well, do I need to say more?
