buttons are bustin'

Back on the topic of shoes,
do we ever really stray far from this topic?
So curious to see what the outfits attached
to these statement shoes look like?!
So unusual and unique. I dig.

There's something to be said for classics,
but there is a lot more to be said about 
the aesthetic of the following pieces
of beauty

Over half of these heels are from Balenciaga 
no surprise that i am in love.

Gold on the Ceiling

Currently topping my Want/Must Have 
list are these Zara beauties!


Blogger Aimee Song rocks them effortlessly
plus they are much more feminine than 
what's currently on my shoe shelves.

Need these asap

Victoria Day Weekend

This past weekend was a long weekend as Monday
was Victoria Day here in Canada.
Many people probably don't know or care to know
what Victoria Day is even all about.
Generally, people don't question WHY we have long weekends,
they just accept them graciously and go camping etc.

Victoria Day marks the birthday of Queen Victoria, which 
is pretty easy to remember...
But it also seems to informally signify the start of Summer!
We all know technically the first day of Summer is really June 21, 
but that is ages away and the weather is finally warming up!

With all that background information being said I decided
it was time to write up my official 
Summer To Do List for 2012
Putting my BookMarc journal to good use,
i jotted down (a lot of) good ideas to accomplish 
this season.

Perhaps a bittttt over zealous, but let's
just see how many i can tackle!

What's on your Summer To Do list?
It helps me appreciate the Summer as more than the season 
of just having a full time job :-/

Another helpful medium i use to keep myself organized for this season is my
semi-new to-do list notepad!!
I bought these a little while ago, but since i was in school my list
basically only consisted of School related tasks.
'Tis the season to be productive and utilize every moment!
I highly recommend this for any list-lover in your life!

Check out the creator Dani on her

Great items and quick shipping!

Well I'm off to do a million things!
Happy Tuesday!

Graduation 2012

 Andrea, Myself, and Danielle

Last week the Grade 12s from our local High School 
celebrated their Graduation.
I had two cousins graduate, as well as my boyfriend's
sister, so the day became quite eventful.
Everyone looked gorgeous and i was so happy
to be present and a part of their memories.

Speaking of memories, it is absolutely absurd
that i graduated six years ago...
Where does the time go!?
I think back to Grade 12 with the fondest 
of memories and i would not change a thing.
Many of the amazing people from that
time are still in a my life and it is crazy how
far we have all come together.

My cousin Shay, my graduating cousin Jamie, and Myself

 Beautiful cousin Tayler and Myself

skirt and jacket from Forever21
tank from H&M

necklace from Hawaii

Andrea and I

i feel so close to you right now

 A couple weeks back i attended a jewelry launch party for 
Amy Henwood Jewelry Design and i even snagged this nature
inspired, branch statement necklace.
I actually really love that it is dainty, as a lot of my other
statement necklaces are pretty huge and eye catching.
This little number is somewhat subtle.

All of her jewelry this collection revolves around the natural
world, including animals and trees.

Shoe Shots

Gold Studded Ballerina Flats

These are the beauties that have been 
gracing my feet as of lately.
Trying to wear my flat shoes more often
and on that note, also trying to wear my heels/wedges
that don't see the pavement as much as they deserve too!
It is a challenge
...There could be worse things

 Jeffrey Campbell Pixie Leopard Wedge

 Topshop Pastel Oxfords

i'll carry you home tonight

Such beautiful weather here on the West Coast!
Soaking it up as much as possible, as i hear we have
a wee bit of rain in the forecast next week.
Anyways, i really love these three looks,
which is shocking considering i rarely embrace 
colours that aren't black, white, grey, or red.
But, i think i can get into these softer choices.
Not loud, or bright, just feminine.
Anyways, lets not hope for a miracle, but i will
try my best to incorporate these muted tones
into my wardrobe! 

Are you digging Springs latest trends?


Sometimes i really miss the old MKA.
During the Spring/Summer i always turn to 
their old California style for easy, boho chic looks.
Yet, just because they are living the NYC dream
doesn't mean they don't work a denim cut off
better than anyone else!
Love Them
Happy Thursday!
