Hey shoe lovers — welcome back for the second installment in my 2 part Winter 2017 Shoe Guide mini series dedicated to stylish, cold weather footwear! If you caught the first installment where I shared my favourite winter shoe basics, you’ll know that I’ve gone through a major shoe purge and refresh this season. In rebuilding my cold weather footwear wardrobe, I started with basics first — then I branched out the extras (you know, the fun stuff!). In today’s Winter 2017 Shoe Guide | Extras I’m chatting about 5 pairs of versatile statement shoes that add a unique edge to my outfits.
I’ve always been a fan of statement shoes (but you already know this!) and am a sucker for footwear featuring unique details, textures, colours and prints for its ability to completely elevate a simple outfit to something much more interesting and polished. If you have your basic winter footwear sorted and are looking for some offbeat or elevated options, or simply wanting to inject some extra style into your wardrobe as we transition for winter to spring, I’ve totally got you covered. Kick back with me tonight and learn more about my favourite affordable (most are on end-of-season clearance!) statement shoes — plus how to style them!
With 2 months of winter left (I’m not counting down the days, or anything!), it seemed like the perfect time to create a series of SHOE GUIDES to help you transition from winter to spring in style! Today’s post is the first in a 2 part Winter Shoe Guide mini series here at JustineCelina where I’m chatting about my winter shoe basics — my cold weather footwear staples.
For the last couple of years I didn’t really find any winter shoes and boots that I loved. In my quest for more balance in all areas of my life this year, I’m making it a priority to purchase fewer, better quality things and reinstate my wardrobe with solid basics. So, I decided to essentially start from scratch this year, rebuilding my cold weather shoe wardrobe from the ground up (ha!). If you’re looking to upgrade your winter shoe game and add some versatile, practical, stylish basics to your closet, this post is for you! Today I’m sharing my 5 most worn pairs of shoes this winter — those comfortable, go anywhere, go-with-almost-everything-in-your-closet shoes that won’t go out of style anytime soon (and won’t break the bank — most of these styles are currently 50% off!).
When I asked a few months ago what kind of content you’d like to see more of here at JustineCelina, I got a resounding request for more shoes! Well, ask and you shall receive, my friends — I’m thrilled that you love shoes just as much as I do! Today I’m chatting about my favourite shoes this summer and shopping end of season sales to find the best deals. I’m also sharing a few tips to transition summer shoes into autumn! Did you know fall doesn’t officially begin until September 22nd? That means there’s almost one full month of summer left! When the sun is shining in Calgary, I’m planning to embrace it and wear my summer shoes for as long as possible! I’m also sharing a fun and easy DIY pompom sandal that’s a great, inexpensive way to try the trend and customize it to suit your personal style. Now let’s chat summer shoes, shall we ladies (and gents)?
Today’s post is all about shoes! I really love shoes — I’m a bit of a shoeaholic and always have been! If you’re reading this, you probably love shoes too. I own quite a few pairs and love being able to totally change the feeling of an outfit by pairing it with different shoes. A few weekends ago I was doing my seasonal shoe rotation (swapping my winter shoes for spring and summer styles) and I got to thinking — if I had to chose only 5 pairs of shoes to transition from spring to summer, which ones would I pick? That’s what today’s post is all about! My Spring Shoe Essentials are a mixture of practical, fun, casual and dressed up — I’ve chosen 5 pairs of shoes to take you through every event and occasion. From casual flats, to the quinessential nude pump, to prints, tassels and fun pops of colour, I’ve got you covered this spring! The best part? Each pair is under $150!

I’m back today with the first of many Spring 2017 FASHION posts coming to JustineCelina — and it feels fantastic! Originally, this look was scheduled for last month, but shooting style content with a fully dressed finger was decidedly… less than glamorous. Now that I’ve healed up a bit I couldn’t wait to jump back in front of the camera (please excuse the Band-Aid!) and chat about some of my Seasonal Wardrobe Staples. It’s been a long winter on the Alberta prairies, but I think it’s safe to say spring has finally arrived!
If you’re looking to refresh your spring style with a few key pieces this season, I’ve totally got you covered today as we spring forward. Although this outfit definitely incorporates a few trends (keep your eyes peeled for several upcoming Spring 2017 TREND GUIDES!) it’s also comprised of spring wardrobe building blocks and updated basics. You may remember me mentioning I wanted to rebuild my wardrobe with quality pieces this year — and I’m excited to share some of those foundational staples with you! Today we’re chatting about the Spring 2017 Pantone Fashion Color Report and simple ways to translate seasonal colour trends into your personal style, Mom jeans (sorry… they’re not going anywhere), step hem denim, blush and pastel hues, basic tees, mini bags, a quintessential spring shoe, oversized shades (obviously!) and a beautiful, everyday lip!

What better time to photograph a style post than during a heavy snowfall / extreme cold warning when you’re snowed in in the country… right?! I headed east to my childhood home in rural Alberta this past weekend and took the snowstorm as a perfect opportunity to shoot this Military Inspired look in the crisp white serenity of the prairies. It was a bit chilly, but these photos made it all worthwhile!
While the most of the world is gearing up for spring, arctic Canadian weather is still alive and well here in Alberta and February can often be our coldest month. As such, I’m a big fan of the statement coat — especially during the winter when your outerwear is your outfit. While I’ve always loved Military Inspired styles (this jacket is about 6 years old!) I was thrilled to see a resurgence of the military trend this winter — and today I’m showing you how to wear it! I’ve paired a classic Military Inspired statement coat with luxe winter accessories in a few of my favourite cold weather textures including faux fur and velvet. I truly believe a well constructed, Military Inspired coat is a timeless piece and a fantastic addition to dress up any winter wardrobe!

With the weather in Calgary being all sorts of unpredictable this year, I had originally planned to share this look with you earlier this autumn as the last installment in my Autumn Trend Guides. The intense cold snap we experienced a couple of weeks ago made shooting new style content outside almost impossible — but thankfully we experienced a few above 0℃ days earlier this week, so I jumped at the chance to get out there and snap a few photos. It actually worked out perfectly, since this last Trend Guide is all about transitioning some of autumns biggest trends into winter!
Today I’m sharing 10 of my favourite styles that are here to stay as temperatures drop — we’re talking novelty denim, metallics, block heels, mini bags, faux fur, pompoms, cold shoulders, velvet, longline and ultra dark, oversized shades! I’m also officially introducing you to Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2017, Greenery, and chatting about different ways to incorporate it into your personal style this season. If you’re ready to refresh your wardrobe for 2017 (or are looking for some holiday style inspiration), these are my top recommendations for trends that are here to stay!
