things i love right now: trout rainwear

trout rainwear

living in vancouver, we see more than our fair share of rain (more like 300 days a year of it!), and i always thought i was a-ok in my anorak, wellies and umbrella, but after i headed out in my trout rainwear, it was obvious that wearing an actual rain coat was something i’d been missing out on.

trout is a rare find: their rain coats are actually stylish and functional! these jackets made by trout are fantastic and hit every mark on a fashionable rain warriors check list: fashion forward, waterproof (not just water resistant like most on the market), and totally quality… and they look like your every day spring trench! each style has a huge hidden hood to keep you (and your hair and makeup) protected with a relaxed easy fit that can be worn rain or shine. did i mention the jackets are made right here in vancouver? i seriously love that.

the line was founded by sisters jenn lancefield and ashley mcdonald (how fun would it be to work along side your sis?!) and i had the chance to chat with them about their rainwear focused line.

fashion friday: valentine’s day shoes

fancy footwork

yes, it’s true, valentine’s day is upon us. whether you love the occasion, or hate it, shoes are always a good idea. if you’re going out for the night with your beau or girlfriends, a saucy shoe is a total must in my book! last year i wore my first pair of louboutins (as most of you may know, my bf gifted these to me a few christmases ago), and i felt beautiful and special. even if you have no plans, why not buy the most important person in your life (YOU!) a gorge new pair of heels for valentine’s day?

i was recently sent a sample of this really interesting product called “sole goddess“. it’s a balm that prevents blisters and hotspots from those (oftentimes) uncomfortable shoes. the reviews are phenomenal; i have yet to try it, but i’ll keep you posted!
