Christmas holidays mean hoping on a flight to Florida for me!  Thankfully my parents dislike the cold just as much as I do so they bought a house in Florida where they keep warm while the rest of us suffer through the Canadian winter.  Luckily I get to benefit from their wise choice as each year I make my way over for the holidays and take in as much sunshine as I possibly can!  Being surrounded my palms trees and many different exotic plants I decided to play a bit of dress-up and have my sister capture some style in our fun surroundings.  Check out three looks that I pulled together from my lightly packed suitcase.  
Ps. I hope everyone had a lovely holiday this year xx

Manitobah Mukluks

Last month I was invited by Lotus Leaf Communications to participate in a street style shoot with Refinery29 photographer, Jenna Marie Wakani, and Manitobah Mukluks.  Myself along with other bloggers were asked to style an outfit or two around what we chose for our feet.  Although Manitobah makes some super warm mukluks that would no doubt keep your feet warm during our cold, miserable Canadian winter I chose to go with an adorable pair of moccasins instead.  These grey little guys are so comfortable and have a durable sole so you can take them out to the streets, which is exactly what I plan on all the time.  They will be my everyday shoe as soon as the cold disappears!  
If you love these little moccasins as much as I do you can visit the Manitobah website and purchase them here.

Outfit of the Day / Sportin' Print

As soon as I saw the black baseball hats come down the runway at the Hervé Léger RTW fall/winter 2013 show I felt the need to immediately get one!  I love hats in general so with sportswear becoming popular I knew this would be one simple way to mix my style and the trend (I'm also loving bomber jackets).  In the summer I was wearing my hat with a lot of basic casual looks, usually short shorts, but for fall I  knew I had to shake things up.  Leather is found usually somewhere in my everyday look right now so I decided to winterize my leather shorts with tights and add this sweater with a super funky take on leopard print.
So what about you.  If you're into the sportswear trend how are you wearing it?
