Its safe to say that my style has evolved throughout the years. I just did a major purge of my wardrobe and donated several (and by several I mean north of 10) garbage bags full of clothes that I simply don't wear anymore. In the past, I had never been one to give practicality much thought. I was guilty of impulse buys that would quickly end up in the back of my wardrobe never to be worn (or seen) again. I was constantly having that "I have nothing to wear" moment when really, I had tons of clothes, just wasn't strategic and practical with my purchases.
My sister and I always ask the same question when it comes to shopping "Do you love it?" Well now I have introduced a second question that will make or break the purchase "Is it versatile and practical?" When I was given the opportunity to select a pair of shoes from the Geox collection, I thought to myself, wow! This opportunity perfectly aligns with my new direction of shopping behaviour. I knew I wanted something practical, yet still on trend, and instantly fell in love with these babies that I'm wearing above. They also just so happen to pass my "Purchase Test." Do I love them? Yes! Are they versatile and practical? Well yes to that too! #nailedit
Needless to say, these shoes have quickly become a wardrobe staple of mine. I'm no spring chicken anymore (as much as I would like to believe it) and am starting to see the importance of selecting practical and comfortable footwear. They're also super breathable with their cutting edge technology, allowing natural temperature regulation as well as creating a micro-climate inside the shoe (aka heatwave friendly :)

I know it's a blogger cliche, but one of my favourite things to do is buy fresh flowers. There is something about them that instantly brightens my day. I usually stick with a lighter palette, but decided to step outside the box with brighter, more saturated tones.
I am totally head over heels for this top - it's loose fit is perfect for those hot summer days and the blue embroidery adds the perfect touch of detail. A go-to outside for those "flower crawls."
Hope you're all having a lovely week!
