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! 


Paisley Pants: OOTD

My outfit of the day or outfit of the…. other day, if you will. This is actually an outfit I took a picture of late last week but haven’t been able to upload until now. I picked up these red silky-smooth paisley pants from Michael Kors last Summer and have loved finding fun ways to style them since. Sometimes they are a bit challenging to work with as they can quite easily look like a chic pair of pyjama pants, but that is all in the fun of them. You can see how I worked with them in my Vancouver Photo Diary post as well.

So what did I do? I pulled out a light white linen sweater by wilfred which has been a closet favourite for years. I paired the garmets with my oh-so-comfy Lanvin smoking slippers and added some of my favourite gold accessories- my Tory Burch stud earrings, a J.Crew necklace and my Michael Kors runway glitz watch.

I admit that the outfit is a little too fashion forward to 99.99999% of people here but I don’t mind the looks, it is nice to be comfortable without looking like a set of barn hands.

Holiday, Here I Come!

I haven’t slept! I have coffee! I’m in Calgary! I’m going to AZ!

I’m taking pictures of all my crap to pass time! I’m also people watching. Currently: Everyone is being boring in the terminal and I am the only interesting person.

Also, when going through US customs:

Officer with perfectly calculated facial hair “Where are you headed?”

Me: “Arizona”

Officer with perfectly calculated facial hair, “Ok.”

Apparently that is all it takes for me to get into the States now…



Oh the shameless selfie… As I was awkwardly approached last week at work for a picture for the yearbook I felt myself tumble into some sort of awful pit of dread knowing that I would never approve of the picture to be snapped. Kind of funny for a girl who enjoys a good picture of herself (no shame here…). The thing is, I like being the one taking that picture, I like being in charge. I like knowing that I can sit or stand there until I get it right. The only other person I feel comfortable enough to get to snap a picture of me is my dad.

Needless to say, I approached my coworker in a frenzy worrying about them using that terrible picture (that I never even saw). She simply replied jokingly “Well why don’t you send me a selfie then.” Joke or not, I am taking her up on it.

This is what I came up with:
