Happy Friday my friends! How has your week been so far? I have been crazy busy with life but am making sure to stay up to date on all of my social media. This weekend is equally as busy for me, I’m working today and tomorrow at my day job ( yes I have a job ) and then shooting a ton on Sunday for some super exciting projects that I am working on! Can’t wait to share with you all, but until then here is a simple look I wore the other day.

I picked up this Romper a few months ago and am only now getting around to wearing it. I styled it with my favorite Denim Jacket and a pair of Old Skool Vans for another effortless casual look, perfect for a summer weekend in the city!

I am a firm believer in simple is best and less is more when it comes to creating outfits. Pulling together pieces that are comfortable and practical, easy to wear and effortless. When it comes to accessorizing I rarely wear jewelry, but when I do it is usually a stack of delicate rings, a simple watch and a dainty necklace or two like these one’s from Lover’s Tempo.

I paired these delicate necklaces with a simple Camisole from American Eagle and a pair of Cut Off Denim Shorts for an effortless look and since the weather has unexpectedly dropped I added on a beautiful Cashmere Cardigan from Michael Kors to help keep me warm. To complete the outfit I laced up my Espadrilles from Emu Australia and opted for a simple Brown Handbag instead of my usual black one.

Happy Wednesday!

When it comes to my wardrobe essentials a Bomber Jacket will always be at the top of my list. Some people collect leather jackets, I collect bomber jackets (with my collection now totally 5…all in different colors of course!). Styled here with just a simple Jeans & a T-Shirt combination to keep things casual and comfy, just the way I like it! Of course I added on my Adidas Superstars and a basic Black Handbag for a final touch.

I am so excited because I actually have both Saturday and Sunday off so I plan on sleeping in, hitting the farmers market and shooting some new content for all of you to enjoy! Don’t forget to follow my Instagram to see what I will be getting up to this weekend!

For today’s outfit I went casual yet cute by paring a basic Striped Long Sleeve with a Corduroy Skirt and my White Adidas Superstars.

Simple & casual, yet with the addition of the floral blouse: elegant. My favorite outfit combinations are always very minimal with a little punch in them to make them stand out. Whether that’s a bold print, a brighter color or in this case a simple feminine ruffle along the neckline, I like my outfits have a little extra detail to distinguish them from the ordinary.

Brand New Shoes + Geox Review

Nude High Heels

WEARING

Geox Audalies Sandals* – HERE

Good morning and happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had an amazing weekend!

Today I want to share with you all the newest addition to my wardrobe: these beautiful Nude Sandals I picked up recently at Geox. Now if you have been reading this blog for a while then you know how much I love Geox, their comfortable and breathable shoes are a must for those hot summer days, so when they asked if I would be interested in reviewing a new pair of shoes of course I said yes! I chose the Audalies Sandal as I don’t really have any high heels in my wardrobe and I thought the change would be nice. First off: let me just say that I am very impressed with the fact that I can actually walk in these (as you all know by now I tend to stick to the flat shoe variety). I’m not an expert when it comes to judging heeled shoes but all in all I am very impressed with them! The heel is thicker making it easier for me to walk in, plus I find them comfortable and they do not make my feet hurt after walking in them. Some shoes I find dig right into the heel of my foot, making it almost unbearable to walk, and these have not done that yet! I would definitely recommend them to anyone in the market for a new pair of heels!

I paired it with a simple Grey Knit and some Grey Heeled Sandals for a more dressed up look that would be perfect for a weekend brunch on a chilly Sunday morning.

 Overalls and espadrilles, a match made in heaven! Both casual and super comfy these two pieces are definitely a necessity when it comes to my summer wardrobe. Here I am styling a light wash pair of Overalls with a simple Bohemian Inspired Blouse and a classic White Purse for a simple yet chic sort of look. To tie the whole look together I threw on my brand new Emu Australia Espadrilles and opted for no jewelry to keep the look very care free and effortless.

I don’t know about you but the weather has been extremely stormy here in Alberta, wind, rain, hail, we have seen it all! Thankfully I received an amazing surprise package from my wonderful family at Soia & Kyo the other day that was filled with amazing trench coats sure to keep me dry and stylish while these storms persist!

For this look I paired my Soia & Kyo Bia Jacket with a basic Graphic T-Shirt for a casual-edgy sort of look. Of course with all the storms the last thing I want to wear is shorts, so I opted for a pair of High Waisted Skinny Jeans instead ( these are by Citizens of Humanity, but I have linked a budget friendly version HERE ) and to complete the outfit I added on my brand new Blush Loafers and the perfect everyday Tote bag from Aritzia!

Happy Monday!
