It's that time of the year again... The Calgary Stampede!
In all honesty, I'm not a huge fan of the celebration (maybe it's because I'm not a big fan of country music?) but I do love how the entire city comes together for two weeks. It's a really fun time for the city, there's ton's of tourists, the usually quiet streets are busy and there's some fun yet sometimes questionable western fashion!
It's also a great reminder that we all need some time to relax and celebrate after a difficult economic year in Calgary.
The fashion is one of my favourite parts of Stampede but I do have to admit it can become a bit repetitive. I mean, I can't tell you how many girls I've seen wear plaid wrapped around their waists. Stampede is a great time to be creative and think outside the box. I love the idea of a romper and some fun walkable shoes. I absolutely love these heels from TOMS! They were just as comfy as their regular shoes and super cute! A few people were shocked when I mentioned they were TOMS! I was also recently introduced to their sunglasses as well! I honestly had no idea TOMS made sunglasses and I love the entire line.
What's great about TOMS is that with each purchase of a pair of shoes or sunglasses, TOMS provides a new pair of shoes/glasses to a child in need... amazing right?
Happy Stampeding! I'm hoping to head there on Saturday if my sickness goes away... fingers crossed!
