Look for less: Check it!

I saw this photo of Miranda Kerr a few weeks ago and was mesmerized by that lovely jacket!  I love B&W for Spring but those vertical stripes everywhere are driving me crazy.  This though, I could do.

 So I found a few inspired pieces that I thought were worth sharing.

In the spirit of a B&W jacket here are a few options that are not checked but just as lovely.

This short number would be great over a springy dress.

And this one is true to the fit of the original jacket, kinda perfectly oversize.


The Look for Less: D'Orsay

Jenni Kayne came out with the most wonderful stylish flat and I want it!

And now I just can't seem to stop seeing this simple beautiful silhouette.

I  did see a dead ringer for the Jenni Kayne's at Chinese Laundry in the US for those of you lucky enough!

Zara has a few heeled options that are also beautiful.

How about taking advantage of Spring's black and white trend too.

Or the metallic trend great to offset pretty pastels.

I find this silouhette classic, romantic (mostly from the name) and sexy.  By definition a d'Orsay shoe is open enough to show the foot's arch but I prefer the heel being completely separate from the front of the shoe.  You may think your foot would slip out but I've had flats in this style that were very comfortable.

What do you think about this style?


Las Vegas in style

Our last stop before flying home is Las Vegas!  I’m excited to take hubby to my favourite spots (especially here for breakfast).  While I won't be partying it up I thought it would be fun to make a style board anyway and what's more appropriate for Vegas than glitz and glam?  Gold and glitter.  You get the idea.

Viva Las Vegas

What was most fun in Vegas (to me) was walking up and down the strip and looking at the ridiculousness that is Vegas.  And also the people watching.  So comfy footwear is key but you will definitely get the chance to dress up to the nines as well!


Tour in style

While on our trip we will be mostly hiking and driving.  But I was inspired by the colours of the landscapes to create this somewhat practical style board for touring the Grand Canyon.


Fly in style

Hubby and I have been planning our spring break trip to the Grand Canyon for some time, and honestly all I can think about is finding the perfect Navajo print scarf to bring with me.  I know, I have issues.  Anyway, to soothe myself I have made… you guessed it, a style board!  The solution to all the world’s problems.

We're flying out today so first: airport style.  It’s very important to be comfortable which does not have to exclude style.  I like to plan to wear my bulkiest shoes on the plane (saves some packing room, especially if you are carrying on) and obviously pieces I can mix and match throughout the vacation even if the weather will be different on arrival.  Layering really helps with this.

Also some essentials: good socks, lip care and a rich moisturizer.  Sunnies upon arrival are always welcome.
