Stampede Style

Calgary is normally a quiet (but happening) city. However, for 10 days every summer, this city erupts with cowboy fever for The Calgary Stampede. Denim on denim, fringing, plaid, daisy dukes, cowboy boots + hats can be seen on almost everyone … + this is not an exaggeration! 
It is amazing how many of these items are actually “on trend” right now all over the globe! 

Now, as I am not a local Calgarian, it has taken me a bit to buy into this style … So each year I try to put my own spin on this Cowtown phenomenon.
A couple of weeks ago as I wandered through the garden market, PARKSALE I met Jacqui from Edna Jean Vintage. It was here I stumbled upon the perfect Stampede jacket.
This jacket instantly caught my eye ... Medium blue denim, real bone + cherry detailing and the perfect amount of leather fringing. A statement.

The best thing is it this jacket is vintage and can be purchased from Edna Jean Vintage! It definitely needs a permanent home. This statement piece is surprisingly versatile + would look stella over a LLD (little lace dress) with killer kicks! Or keep it casual by pairing it with ripped black jeans + a simple grey or white tee. Please, someone go get it now!  

Edna Jean Vintage has incredible vintage pieces and I cannot wait to get my hands on more of their unique pieces of beauty! 

As they say here in Calgary ... YEE-HAW!! Happy Stampeding peeps!

Bump Day in B+W

Well, its Wednesday, its Canada Day, and now affectionately known to us, its “bump day!”
Our little sesame bump is 25 weeks! It is hard to believe just how fast the time really does fly. 

People have been asking for “the bump” pictures so I thought I would post some here from our recent trip to Hawaii. I will be reminiscing Hawaii for quite some time so watch out for all the Hawaii related posts!!  
These pictures were taken early one morning as we enjoyed our morning coffee on the soft white sand & with the gentle lapping of the ocean waves as our soundtrack ... Oh, if only I could click my heels and be back there now ...!  

Others have also been asking to see my bump style, so I have decided to post a “bump day” style pic on my instagram each Wednesday for the next 3 months … or so! The bump is something I am still very much getting used to, its hard to imagine that our little Sesame still has so much growing to do?!
So with Sesame growing, so is my style ... I am loving the miracle of this journey. 

Happy Canada Day!
