Flat & chunky sandals

I covered a ton of cute sandals of a variety of styles in a recent round-up post but I brought you some goods here in this post, too.

Soft pink faux leather platform sandal // $100

Leather slide flats // $255 // also comes in black

Fresh sneakers

Sneakers have made a huge come back this season, I remember when I was in elementary school and the only sneakers cool to wear were “skater shoes”. I’m glad to say we’ve come a long way since then & the sneakers that we know and love currently have flatter soles, are casual, and super versatile.

the details

Ace leather sneakers // $650 // classic white sneakers with a dainty embroidered logo

Suede and canvas sneakers // $560 // love the soft pink used in this pair

Printed leather sneakers // $300 // these are a cool twist on classic white kicks, the design is unique without being over the top

Superstar embroidered suede sneakers // $250 // can you see a pink theme forming? This pair has a unique stitching pattern as part of the design

Colourful leather and suede-trimmed mesh sneakers // $180 // these are so fun for Spring and summer with the combination of colour

Stacie ankle strap platform sandal // $118 // these sandals feature a gorgeous braided-jute heel

Clover canvas platform sneakers // $98

Bamboo heel slide // $268 // I love the idea of using bamboo for a heal, it’s sustainable & really durable

High-top hero’s

These high-tops are showstoppers and owning a pair of Chuck Taylor high tops myself I can safely safe that they are a pair of sneakers you want to always have in your closet.

Chuck Taylor high top sneaker // $60 // these are the ones that I have and they’ve lasted me over three seasons

Blazer mid ‘77 high top sneaker // Nike // $100-$110

Flash high top sneaker // Zadig & Voltaire // $348

Weekly Loved// 06.06.21

Hey friends! Happy Sunday, I hope you had a fantastic week. I was productive this weekend and got my tires changed over on my car from my summers to my winters [it’s a Canadian thing] which I totally avoided doing last year, oops. Tristan did some gardening and replaced the flowers that didn’t survive the transplant into our garden and picked up a few more pretty plants for our porch – I love incorporating all the flowers and colour into our outdoor decor.

This week we’re under a heat warning/wave so I don’t anticipate much time will be spent outside. However it’ll give me much needed time to focus on finishing my first module of the pre-registration phase in my Real Estate course! And of course plan out some content for this little space & all of you!

This week there’s some comfy finds along with my absolute favourite kitchen drawer gadget – lets dive in.

Favourite Spring Nail Colours and Designs

Kiss nails are hands down the best acrylic nails I’ve ever used for an at home manicure. They come in the cutest styles and colour for spring, are very simple to apply, and insanely durable! A full set when properly applied will last me about a week, give or take. Here in Ontario we’re once again under a stay at home order which means all non-essential business’ must close – including salons and nail spas. Fortunately Kiss allows you to keep up with your nails without sacrificing salon quality. Here’s my favourite nail set styles, shapes, designs, and colours for this spring!

Obsessed: vintage furniture

Lately I’ve been loving on vintage furniture and the character that it brings into a space. It creates a lived-in feel without having to sacrifice space for functionality and is super easy to up-cycle! Check out your local thrift shops and consignment stores for vintage furniture at a reasonable price — if you’re willing to spend a little bit more then head to an antique shop or market. Garage sales are also another great source for vintage furniture at a great price and typically you can negotiate the sale! Today I’m bringing you some vintage inspiration with beautiful furniture pieces and how to incorporate each one into your home.

Vintage Card Catalog

Card catalogs were used a ton in library’s back in the early 1900’s — it contained cards on every book that the library system owned. They range in size and styles and you can find an abundance of up-cycle inspo for this specific furniture item on Pinterest.

vintage: 4-drawer oak card catalog, 20-drawer library card catalog [only one available]

new: oxford two drawer console table, pink painted 36-drawer cabinet

Hoosier Cabinet

This was the cabinet every women wanted in their home during the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. It revolutionized the kitchen to resemble something of what we know now, with beautiful built in cabinetry.

antique: oak Hoosier style cabinet

Vintage wooden wardrobe for linens

No linen closet? No problem, vintage wardrobes have got you covered.

vintage: Falster wardrobe, antique armoire wardrobe, European painted wardrobe

new: wood & metal wardrobe, handcrafted solid teak wood wardrobe

Antique bookcase with sliding glass panes

I can think of so many different things that you could do with this bookcase — in my house it would probably be used to house my plants but I think it would virtually work in any room!

vintage: mid-century modern walnut glass front bookcases, 19th century walnut bookcase

new: heirloom storage cabinet

Vintage Hutch

I love the weathered look of this hutch, it truly looks like a classic vintage farmhouse find.

vintage: vintage solid hutch, vintage large standing cabinet in green [only one available]

new: classic Cadiz hutch

Antique China cabinet

Formally to store China and dishes, now used to store just about anything! There’s many different styles and unique variations of these gorgeous cabinets so you’re guaranteed to find something that fits your aesthetic.

vintage: walnut dining room China cabinet

new: mahogany grey China cabinet

Older pieces have a way of livening up any home giving it that lived in cosy feel, and many tend to be made with the kind of oldschool craftmanship you just can’t find anymore with mass production!

Do you have any vintage finds in your home?

Happy Friday friends! I hope you’ve had a fantastic week and got to enjoy some nice spring weather wherever you’re from! We got outside a ton this week and did some cleaning up around our yard.

Fashion Staples for Spring

I’m loving this neutral cream jumpsuit with a built-in belt to define your waist from H&M. It can easily be dressed up for an event or outing with a simple blazer, some heals and accessories or you can wear it super relaxed at home or running errands.

H&M cream jumper

I love the colour of this ribbed mock button front dress it’s very suitable for spring and the fit will definitely flatter your curves. If you aren’t into dresses check out this extremely similar skirt.

Nothing says spring like a classic white pair of sneakers! Reebok classic harman runners are the perfect no-nonsense sneaker with a hint of tan at the sole which I think is the cutest feature.

This crochet trim straw hat is giving me all the beachy feels. I adore the the crochet detailing and the colours are definitely complimenting.

Indoor & Outdoor Home Decor

I am in love with this girona outdoor chair and especially the grey fabric intertwined on the back and seat. This chair is part of World Markets resin line so the base of the chair looks like it was carved from one single piece of wood as opposed to multiple different pieces!

I have been wanting to invest in a acrylic calendar for a while now. I love anything that is sustainable and lasts for a long time and I also love the aesthetic of an acrylic calendar. So chic.

This old school flip clock was my favourite find of the week. I love anything that’s vintage inspired and I’ve been using a flip clock screensaver on my MacBook for forever so when I came across this clock I knew it was meant to be.

Another vintage inspired find but this one satisfies the pink fanatic that I keep locked up inside. The pink and grey tufted vintage rug would look amazing in any room.

This fela tasseled chandelier is for all my fellow boho lovers! I think it would look adorable in a little girls room, a home office or a walk-in closet.
