not your average vest

vest: club monaco // tank: american eagle outfitters // jeans: urban outfitters (super duper old, similar here) // flats: poppy barley // bag: roots // necklaces: c/o: oia jules, gifted // watch: michael kors 

I wore this outfit a couple days ago when I had the pleasure of attending Poppy Barley's VIP design event with a few lovely Calgary bloggers . If you've read this blog for a while now, you know that I love Poppy Barley! Not only are they from Alberta but the whole concept is truly unique. They are a custom flat/boot company that tailors to any of your shoe concerns! Whether it be wide calves, tiny feet, anything! They are beautifully made as well! Whenever I wear these flats, I always get compliments on how beautiful they are.

The event was a lot of fun and we got to see first hand the different leather's they are intending on introducing. I also got to meet some new faces and some fans! One in particular made my day by coming up to me and expressing how much they loved my style sense and my blog in general. It just made me feel so great and it makes this whole blogging adventure completely worth it. For that, I say THANK YOU! :)

Ps. This particular fan also told me that when she saw my Poppy Barley flats for the first time she had  to get them too! I couldn't resist a picture...

Happy Wednesday!


  1. Those flats are too cute!

  2. Those flats are so adorable! And the colour... so perfect.

  3. cute flats!

  4. The flats are really cute and unique, which I love. Bonus that they're Canadian, too.

    I really love that vest. It's nice that it's completely different than anything else you probably already have....which must have helped justify the purchase!
