More stripes and another trip


Remember when I was telling you guys about my foolproof top? Well, I ended up ordering both of the other colors. I figured for as much as I wore the first one, the other two will get plenty of air time. And yes, this is the second pair of Pedro Garcia shoes you are seeing in one week. Completely not intentional, just really trying to make sure all my fall shoes get the appropriate attention and I loved the way these grounded the outfit.

Sunnies: Vince Camuto (option) | Bag: Tory Burch (option, budget option)  | Top: J Crew Factory | Bracelet: Natasha Couture (option) | Bottoms: Express | Shoes: Pedro Garcia (option, option

Another week, another trip, right? October is going to be a very busy month for me and it all starts this weekend. The husband has a work conference to attend in Montreal. Neither of us have ever been, so we're going to go ahead and make a long weekend out of it. The conference doesn't start until Monday, but we are flying in Saturday to explore the City for the weekend. Anybody been before? Suggestions? 

The conference is Monday and Tuesday, which will give me the chance to work during the day myself from the hotel. That's the great part of my job-- that I can really do it from anywhere. I did the exact same thing when I was in California meeting my nephew! I do wish my work laptop didn't weigh a thousand pounds, but otherwise, it's sometimes nice to work away from the office because you don't get the distractions of your phone ringing, or people stopping by your desk for random conversations, or getting tempted by food and coffee in the kitchen!

I was looking at photos of Montreal, and it looks like a little mini Paris! Perhaps I should wear my third color of this shirt there since it's navy and white stripe, which is always a very Parisian color combo in my head! Now off to research shopping options!

  3. Ooh, I'm jealous! I've never been to Montreal and it sounds really fun. I hope you have a great time. Great choice of pairing the neutral stripes with the red pants and my favorite bag. :) I might have to have a peek at some of the similar leopard crossbody options you showed....

    1. Sadly I feel like there is nothing that comes close to this bag!! The print is so hard to beat, you know? But I'm always on a lookout for a good dupe so I will let you know whenever I find a good one!
      Excited for Montreal! No idea what to pack tho! And I hate packing!! Haha

    1. Well, the best part is that the necklace is part of the top! Genius, huh! All I had to do was throw on a bracelet and I was done. Seriously one of the many reasons why i love this top!!

  9. Soo jealous, I went to Quebec ohhh so many years ago, but I still remember this boho vibe, a lot of artsy places, people playing music outside, old brick roads, lots of fun. Enjoy your mini vacay

  17. I'm in love with your heels! I can never find a flattering pair of brown/chocolate colored heels. I have family in Montreal but they usually come to the states, I haven't made it out there in years! I definitely need to make it back. Enjoy your trip!

    1. You know, these are the *only*pair of chocolate shoes I own. Mainly because of the same thing you said - it's hard to find the perfect pair! These are so fun though, I just love them.

    1. Amazing how much French there is! I mean, I expected it, but at the same time I didn't, if that makes sense! It truly is like you are in France! I love it!
