Le Chateau June Shoe Picks

Le Chateau snake print sandals, American Apparel V Strap Tank, Biko cuff
This month I decided to get comfortable in a pair flat sandals from Le Château. The double elastic band around the ankle make these guys perfect to wear for everyday adventures and the snake embossed strap at the toe adds some style to your overall outfit. And guess what?! These little guys are on sale right now for $30! Moving on I have to point out some other loves of mine that live in this look. For starters VINTAGE LEVI'S. Everyone needs a pair. They are forever classic, always unique AND SO CHEAP! I'll be the first to admit someone stole my ass BUT we can't deny the booty looks fab in these beauties. Am I right? Next, this tank from American Apparel. I'm not into their price points for their products however I tried on every crop from Aritzia, which is where most of my clothes come from, and not one fit me properly BUT this one from AA fit like a glove and has an amazing back detail. Finally my accessories! Chokers are my jam but that's nothing new. I want to point out the cuff I'm wearing by Toronto designer BIKO. I am obsessed with every piece this designer creates. She recently had a sample sale where I scooped up a few pieces that I can't wait to show off to you guys! That pretty much wraps up this look, I hope you enjoyed it! For all all my Canadian followers HAPPY CANADA DAY tomorrow!!!

Making a Trade: Floppy Hats for Fedoras

Janessa Leone Vera Hat, Rag & Bone Booties, Brave suede fringe purse
Step aside floppy, wide brim hats, hello fedoras. It's so funny how we can rock something one day and the very next day question why we loved something SO MUCH. That's how I felt recently after purchasing this hat. I remember a short time after I felt like adding one of my floppy's to my look and immediately thinking to myself this thing is so huge!! This Janessa Leone hat called Vera I scooped up from Zane here in Toronto and was quickly drawn to the gold detailing but I also felt like this was the best fit I've found in a hat ever. I have a tiny head so finding a hat that fits snug without being blown off on a semi windy day has been a challenge. There is nothing worse then wearing a hat and having to hold it down as you're trying to take a leisurely stroll. Like what an outfit buzz kill! Hats are such a weakness of mine and yet I don't wear them enough. With this look the dress is very plain and casual so adding this hat was such an easy touch to make it more special. What kind of hats are your favourite for this season?

Sleeveless Jackets

topshop premium sleeveless jacket, Aritzia Dara Leggings, Nicholas Kirkwood Shoes
So this sleeveless jacket from Topshop was a love at first sight piece. In the past I've always been struck by blazer dresses that were hitting the red carpets quite a bit by celebrities. This piece is so multifunctional that it not only compromised on that trend but also with the more recent sleeveless jacket trend. I really liked the quality and weight of the fabric, the raw edging detail and the contrast of the buttons that basically accessorize the look. Sometimes it's difficult in the beginning to see options on how to wear significant pieces like these so below I've listed different ways that I'll be wearing it in case you have a piece that's similar to experiment with.

3 Ways to Wear this Sleeveless Jacket
* As a jacket worn over an outfit like this one
* Buttoned up and worn on its own as a dress
* Over distressed denim and a casual graphic tee

Trend Struck by Running Shoes

Grey Nike sneakers, Bench leggings, athletic fashion
I still can't get off this athletic/sportwear trend. I used to agree that these clothes weren't meant to be worn as daily outfits. That to and at the gym was where it should start and end. Well how things have changed!! This is exactly why there aren't rules in fashion. Give things time and anything can change and be accepted. There is seriously nothing I love more than throwing on a pair of Nike's with a casual days look. I think it looks good and I even feel good. Who knew sneakers didn't need a workout to get you feeling good! I did go that extra length and even pair them with actual fitness leggings from Bench here however that's not always my go-to. To balance things out I paired everything with a simple white tee and a denim jacket to make it look more for the streets than the gym. If you've got a heavy day of errands ahead of you, get comfy in a similar look to this one! As I mentioned this is just one way I choose to wear my Nike's, I have a lot of other styles up my sleeve and I'm am certain you will get to see them in the future. 
PS. For those of you wearing Nike's for actually working out in good for you and happy National Running Day!! xxGrey Nike sneakers, Bench leggings, athletic fashion
