Uniforms & Online Shopping


(Blazer by H&M (similar, similar - both out of my price range!), Top by Banana Republic (outlet) (similar), Pants by Zara (similar), Shoes by Le Chateau)

I seem to be turning outfits involving this blazer into a bit of a uniform ... see other looks here and here and the pattern becomes clear ... wavy hair, skinny pants & a shirt of any kind.  I hope you're not sick of seeing these types of outfits because they are so easy to put together, are comfortable, and look great (in my opinion!)

Did you notice my new sandals?!  I got them on Monday from Le Chateau, on sale for $39.99!  Real suede, rubber sole, perfect tan colour ... aka just what I've been looking for in a new flat sandal!
After wearing them all day (without much walking around, I'll admit) I can say they are very comfy so far.  I am also on the hunt for a new pair of wedge sandals in black that can be dressed up or down.  My eye is on the Lamaster by Aldo, currently on sale online for $38.49 (regular price $80.00).  When I went shopping on Monday the Aldo in Park Royal was sold out of the Lamaster in Black, and only had size 8 and up in the Cognac (fyi, I am a size 6 or 7 in shoes) so I was unable to try them on ... which I really prefer to do before purchasing.  So now I have to get my butt down to the Aldo on Robson which has my size ... or I could just order them online and hope they fit/are comfortable... and return them to any Aldo store for a full refund if they don't.  Undecided as of yet, obviously!
 I did try on the Hankel by Aldo, which was a lot cuter than I thought it was going to be, but they were quite tight and made out of synthetic, not leather, which I was hoping for.

Also I wanted to mention that if you are interested in shopping online (which you should be, lets be honest!) you can get much better deals online than in store ... Lamaster was on sale for $54.98 in store and only $38.49 online.  Hankel $39.98 in store, $27.99 online.  Aldo offers free shipping on orders over $75 & regular shipping rates start at $5.  You do the math.

While we are not blessed with as many companies as the US that
a. ship to Canada
b. offer reasonable shipping rates

c. offer free shipping
d. offer free returns
you can still do well shopping online if you do your research.  Or if you read my blog, I will tell you all my faves!  Old Navy/Gap/Banana Republic online shopping tips coming tomorrow :)
