Stampede with TOMS

romper: american eagle (recent) // shoes: c/o toms // sunglasses: c/o toms

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!


  1. Get well soon! Looking forward to catching up this weekend :).

    1. Still sick! BLAHHH and it was so lovely seeing you!

  2. Wish you speedy recovery. Your romper is perfect with those walkable shoes. Love the look.
