Spring Shoes

March 28, 2016

Spring-Sandals-Sezanne-LoefflerRandall

Spring feels like it’s really rolling in here, and I’m ready to stash my sneakers and boots in favour of some pretty sandals. Here are a few favourites I’ve been eyeing..

One / This Loeffler Randall pair would be so pretty with a white tshirt and cropped jeans.

Two / I thought about getting these Sezane beauties last year, but was too slow and they sold out. I might jump on them this year. They seem like the perfect everyday shoe for warmer weather.

Three / A fun take on the espadrille trend, the silver platforms would be a good dose of personality for any outfit.

Four / Do shoes get any easier (or prettier) than these?

Which pair is your favourite?

Spring is Coming!

Madewell-Spring

It may still be wet and rainy here in Vancouver (and maybe it’s still very cold where you are), but we know that Spring. Is. Coming. And I couldn’t be more excited to break out my neglected sandals and dresses. And to make matters even better, Madewell just released their Spring catalogue. Now I really can’t wait.

Check it out!

Easy, Wear Everywhere Jewels

January 29, 2016

Madewell-Dress

I love buying jewelry, but I also love wearing the same pieces day in and day out. When I find something I love, I tend to wear it constantly for a long time. Because of this, I like to buy pieces that have staying power and aren’t too trendy. I’ve found that organic, delicate pieces tend to fit this bill the best. Thankfully, there are a lot of talented designers in Vancouver (probably deserves a post all its own), like Foe and Dear. I tend to mix items from her and other designers with favourites from Madewell.

Easy-Jewelry-Under-100-Dollars

Here are a few pieces that I bet could find a nice home in your jewelry wardrobe:

01. This Madewell Necklace makes great use of mixed media and would look great with cropped jeans and black slide on mules.

02. Foe and Dear uses beautiful stones and this quirky open cuff is no exception. I think it’d be lovely with a simple black blouse and ripped jeans.

03. There’s always room for a little sparkle.

04. I really love the mix of gold and green agate in this Madewell bracelet.
