A Canadian Girl's Guide to Looking Like a Londoner



I think one of my favourite things about London last week was just looking at people.  You could of parked me on a bench in Trafalgar Square and I would have happily spend my time observing people.  One of the most notable observations about fashion was what women were wearing.  I say it was notable because a good 8/10 ladies were dressed in the same manner and it had me wishing I had packed differently.  Here I was glad in denim, my bomber jacket et my adidas Superstars when clearly the trendy thing to wear was menswear inspired trenches, denim and loafer/oxford/men-inspired shoes.  I absolutely loved the look, loved is so much that I went and found myself Virginia, an lilac coloured trench which will be the perfect addition to my wardrobe for the upcoming spring. Which weirdly is happening in February?  I found some other great options for the style at a couple of my favourite Canadian shops : Simons, The Bay and Aritzia.

The second thing you would need to add to your wardrobe to complete this trend is a fun menswear inspired shoe: an oxford, a loafer or a slip on.  This is something I still have to work on in my personal collection :).  I say collection because it makes me feel better about all the shoes in my closet.  Yikes.

  9. Oh my gosh I want that gorgeous coat! It's so fun to see the fashion in other places and bring it home. I shop for clothing as a souvenir of places I've been. It's a great excuse to shop! ;)

  14. Virginia is so pretty. And I love the menswear loafer look, but I have yet to find a pair that fits my wideish feet. Those black and white ones are getting all the heart eyes from me.

  18. I have a pair of menswear oxfords that I forget to wear. But this weekend I will brak them out and break them in and think of you! Isn't people watching an interesting activity? I used to like watching folks at the airport. Lots of potential stories there. Virginia is blessed to have gone home with you. You will make her look even better than she would look on her own. A match made in heaven.
