Hey everyone!  Here's a look at a couple of new purchases that I mentioned last time - this Old Navy chambray, and these two pairs of shoes from J.Crew Factory.  Also, good news!  Aritzia is having a free shipping promo all weekend so I can order this dress!
Last weekend I ordered this denim jacket (40% off) from Gap and these printed drapey pants from Old Navy (on sale for $20.50) and they should arrive soon so I'll let you know how they fit!  These flats from Steve Madden are next on my buy list, I am just waiting for them to go on sale!

Last weekend was really lovely.  We had dinner with friends at their new house on their gorgeous patio and met their cute little baby, we went for brunch at a new-to-us place in our neighbourhood and walked down to Granville Island to get fresh spot prawns and salad for dinner (I also happened to get a donut!).  As you may know, I have Sundays and Mondays off and T works Monday to Friday, so really we only have one weekend day together and Mondays I kind of do my own thing.  It's pretty routine - usually I sleep in, wake up with a coffee and girly TV show (Grey's Anatomy or Scandal are popular choices) and then head for a workout.  After lunch I get groceries and do meal prep for the week.  If it's sunny and warm I'll suntan and read on our balcony.  Often T will come home early and we'll get a few extra hours to spend together; lately we've been embracing Happy Hour which has been really fun!  I only wish more restaurants would put their HH menus on their website!

What do you like to do on the weekends?  Do you spend time alone or with your partner or a little of both?  Whatever you do, I hope you had a great weekend!  Thank you so much for reading!

Heeeeyyy!  How's it going??


Things over here have been good, pretty quiet.  Like no major life changes or trips or anything.  We have been hanging out at home a lot, tackling house projects and cleaning/nesting/organizing ... things like that!

The weather in Vancouver has been unseasonably warm and I have zero complaints about it.  I know I should be more worried about global warming, but the effect it is having on my life in this moment is welcome.  You will be seeing some more warm-weather outfits soon!
Things are picking up entertainment-wise - we are watching Game of Thrones and I have the new Beyonce album on full repeat (I am writing this from the future, lol!)

Shopping-wise, I did pick up a few things this month, including two pairs of shoes from J.Crew Factory (here, here), and this gorgeous pleated midi skirt (in the colour "Warm Harbour".  Scored on sale for $37 USD and free shipping!).  Unfortunately the skirt was final sale (so no returns or exchanges) and it fits smaller than I would like (I ordered a 2P, I think a 4P would have been better), but I'm going to make it work!  I also ordered this dress from Aritzia when it went on sale for $58 (down from $85) after trying it on in store in February.  I don't really have an LBD for work and I really liked how this one had sleeves, a v-neck that wasn't too revealing, was short but not inappropriately so, and was comfortable but still figure-flattering (I tie it at the front, and ordered an XS for reference).  I love it.  I also ordered this dress but had to return it.  It was okay, and I love the colour, but I just didn't LOVE the fit on me.  And I really try to only buy things I LOVE.  You know what I mean?  In the meantime, this dress has popped up, and I was able to try it on in-store, but they didn't have the berry colour!  Aritzia only does free shipping over $150, and their returns for online orders are for a merchandise credit, not cash (or back on your Visa/Debit) so I may have to fork over the $8 for shipping if I want to get it :(  I also really like the cornflower blue colour!
This chambray from Old Navy also came in the mail.  It is really cute.  It definitely runs on the large size (boyfriend fit).  I ordered my regular size, XS, and further shrunk it in the dryer.  It worked pretty well but I'm not looking forward to washing it again as the wrinkles were pretty atrocious.

Well, that's it for now!  Thanks so much for reading!!

Hi everyone!  Here's a look at what I wore to work the first week of April - keep scrolling for more pics and outfit details!

Blazer by H&M (old, similar), Top by Smart Set (old, similar from Modcloth), Pants "Pixie" by Old Navy, Shoes by Vince Camuto Outlet, Necklace by H&M (old, similar from Forever 21)

 Sweater by H&M (old, similar from Macys), Skirt by Dynamite (old, similar from JC Penney), Shoes by Vince Camuto Outlet, Necklace by Banana Republic Outlet (not online, similar from Saks Off Fifth), Nails by Essie in "Cute as a Button"

Top by Old Navy, Jeans "Mid Rise Rockstar" by Old Navy, Shoes by Vince Camuto Outlet, Necklace by H&M (old, similar from Forever 21), Nails by Essie in "Cute as a Button"


A couple of things to note here - #1, I bought and wore a jumpsuit in public! LOL  As with most polarizing trends (culottes & flared crops come to mind), I was at first against/on the fence about rompers/jumpsuits.  I tried a couple of rompers last summer, and they didn't work, if I recall correctly they felt too young-looking and pyjama-ey.  I was convinced to try a pants version by a few of my very encouraging co-workers and I have to say, I am really liking this one from Old Navy!  I have already worn it again since, although it is difficult to re-style being that it is pretty much a complete outfit in and of itself. I do feel slightly like I am wearing pyjamas in it, and therefore will likely reserve it for more casual work days.  Unfortunately I can't wear it much outside of work as my husband has made it clear that he is NOT a fan of the look! 
#2, this striped top from Old Navy doesn't photograph well but I promise in person it's quite cute.  It's boxy and slightly cropped, which is a different silhouette than I normally wear, so it's a nice change.  Also the mustard yellow/white/navy blue combo is great.  The only dislike is that it's difficult to wear a topper (cardigan, blazer) with this because of the boxiness and the longer sleeves.
#3, clearly I need a new pair of black flats because all I seem to wear these days are these old Vince Camuto flats!  The leather starting to wear at the toe so I recently picked up these loafer-style flats from Aldo.  They are buttery-soft and I love them!  Normally I wear a 6 1/2, but I got a 6 in these and they are fine.  They were sold out of the 6 1/2 in-store and online at the time (I see now they are re-stocked online in multiple sizes) so I wasn't able to compare, but the SA convinced me the leather would stretch and I from wearing them for a week, I think she's right.

Well, that's all for now!  Let me know if you have any questions and thanks for reading!

Monthly Outfit Roundup: March 2016

Jules in Flats Monthly Outfit Roundup March 2016

So it's almost April and I didn't blog at all during March??!!  Eeek, sorry guys!!
Anyways, I was still taking outfit pics and decided to do an entire post devoted to March rather than splitting it up.  I am sure that is against most blogging logic, as I have content that could be stretched out to 4 or more posts, but I'd rather just get caught up!

*UPDATE*
I am working separate posts for each week of outfits!  Click for Week One, TwoThree and Four.

I feel like I've been repeating outfits so much recently!  I don't really know if I have or not, I don't often go back through my outfits to see check.  Maybe I am just tired of wearing the same thing?  One thing I do know is that my black booties and black need a major break!  Or upgrade :)

I am thinking about getting the Sam Edelman Petty booties in black leather for next season - they must be popular for a reason!  Have any of you had any luck or experience with those boots?  They are totally out of my spending comfort zone, but maybe they are worth it?  I mean, you see how often I wear black booties!
And I am really surprised at the amount I am wearing these black Vince Camuto Ellen flats.  I've had them for a couple of years but wasn't really into the round-toe look.  Somewhere along the way things changed!  I still love a pointy toe (basically all of my other flats are pointy and/or d'orsay) but I find myself reaching for the Ellens all the time!  

Thanks for reading!!
