OOTD: October 5th

Last week finally caught up to me so by the time Friday night hit, I was feeling pretty done and done. It made for a hard earned relaxing(ish) weekend. I only ran out a couple times and for not very long.

I had been wanting to wear my Rag & Bone boyfriend jeans with these monk strap shoes from J.Crew for a while now and I finally got around to giving it a whirl. I loved the result, paired with an oversize olive green sweater by Wilfred, my Michael Kors wool coat and a giant Prada bag.

Also, I don’t know what the view is like from your backyard but I had a Snowbirds show in mine late Friday afternoon.

OOTD: J.Crew Monk Strap

Just a quite OOTD! Or well, once again, Outfit of the Other Day earlier this week.

I posted my monk strap shoes I picked up at J.Crew a while ago now but I just wanted to share how I have been wearing them.

Styled with my favourite pair of skinny jeans and my red Louis Vuitton top handle. I try and keep things simple when I wear these shoes, I also had on a plain t shirt and chunky knit olive sweater from Wilfred. My muse definitely was Elin Kling that day.

Happy Friday to everyone and be sure to enjoy and relax this weekend! You deserve it!

Menswear Inspired at J. Crew

This afternoon one of my students came up to me and asked, “Do you like shoes?” as I was putting on yet another pair of Stuart Weitzman pumps. Of course I answered yes with a big smile, but really I thought “You have nooooo idea”. How long do you think it will take for them to figure it out? My previous class had me down in about four days. J. Crew Monk Strap

I picked up these monk strap shoes from J. Crew a couple weeks ago. I was beyond excited when I found them as a) I have been looking for a menswear inspired shoe for a light year and b) I didn’t have anything remotely close to this. I was being very specific in my search, looking for something that I can wear out in the rain (like today!) that has a bit more area covered than a flat, yet remains sleek and not bulky, and was inspired by my fathers closet. So, there they were and I just had to pick them up. I’m always looking for new ways to style these, who wants to offer some inspiration?
