SUMMER MUST HAVES/ Sneaker Shortlist

Hey everyone!

You'll notice this is a bit of a different post from usual but maybe they'll start happening more often...? This is also a little bit of an advertisement, but just know that I am not getting paid for this,  and any sales and clicks from this sneaker feature do not benefit me in any way.

A lovely lady named Laurren Medford-Stewart, who works for European online retailer FarFetch.com, contacted me with this "exclusive" infographic on their top summer sneaks and strongly encouraged me to share it. Just because I love FarFetch so much, I present to you FarFetch's Sneaker Shortlist!

What style are you? Let me know in the comments!

For those of you who don't know what FarFetch is, they are an online retailer that sources their product from european boutiques. Instead of having to visit a bunch of different boutiques websites that may or may not have certain sizes or styles from your fav designers, you can just search them all at the same time through FarFetch! I've made a couple of my purchases from them over the years - I tend to use them as a last resort though because taxes and duties from Europe to Canada are not very nice to my bank account!

until next time,

OUTFIT/ Pink

I remember there was a time when I absolutely DESPISED the colour pink - especially on boys.  To be fair, I hated pink in way back high school before I knew that fashion was an actual "thing" and the only guys wearing pink were douchebags or extremely flaming - of which I was neither.  Since then I've grown up some, widened my perspective, dyed my hair blue, green, and come back to black and come to appreciate it, and maybe even love it.

Not only am I into soft pinks, but camel tones, and for anyone who's following me on insta you'll know what I'm talking about. Even though I've made a bit of a promise to myself to stop spending on TS/TM, I ended up splurging on a camel Harrington jacket and this light pink bomber... they were just exactly what I was looking for and the pink bomber I was able to get on my work discount ^-^ In other pink/camel-things-news I'm also saving up for the pink Raf/Stans! Can't wait to wear them with my bomber. Too much pink? Maybe. But I'm feelin' it so 💁🏼

Pin - Inventory from Neighbour | Shoes - New Balance

This one's a short outfit post - no outtakes or anything, sorry! But really, that's fine because it's beautiful outside and you should be enjoying the amazing weather while you can - if it's even nice where you are ;)

Until next time 💞
