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)?
With August barely underway, many retailers are beginning to introduce fall inventory. Well I don’t know about you, but I’m not even close to being done with summer! Regardless of whether or not the sun is shining in Calgary (rain, rain, go away!), I’ve still been enjoying seasonal trends. Today, I’m sharing my Summer 2016 Trend Highlights and showing you how I’ve been wearing them — including bright whites, pompoms, off the shoulder tops, tassels, fringe, lace up details, frayed hem denim, 70’s revival and layered gold and natural stone jewellery! I’m also thrilled to be working with my favourite local jewellery designer Coutu Kitsch to share some of my favourite pieces from their SS16 El Verano Collection with you.

After 10 days of rain and some crazy storms here in Alberta, I took full advantage of a few brief days of sunshine earlier this week. Today I’m chatting about carefree summer style and my favourite easy pieces to wear on hot summer days. You know, those simple ‘one and done’ pieces that practically style themselves — you can just throw them on and go? That’s what today’s post is all about! I’m also sharing some great accessories to add interest to easy summer outfits along with my go-to pair of oversized shades. Come adventure to the beautiful canola fields right behind my family’s acreage in rural Alberta and enjoy some virtual Vitamin D!

Summer is in full swing here in Calgary and each season I look forward to updating my wardrobe with a few new pieces! Although I love colour, today’s post is inspired by some new, neutral items I’ve picked up recently that have been on heavy rotation. I’m highlighting my favourite new accessories in a neutral, versatile colour palette and chatting about how I incorporate new pieces into my wardrobe to update old favorites. I also chat pairing a statement lip with neutral outfits to punch them up and add a pop of colour (because you know I can’t get enough purple lips lately)! Stay tuned for summer style inspiration and my take on the seasons latest trends — including bucket bags, circle shades, tassels and cropped, frayed, distressed denim.

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 couldn’t be happier that spring is officially here, so today I’m sharing my top 10 spring style staples and beauty tips! Year after year, there are a few pieces and colours I always look forward to incorporating in my spring wardrobe and beauty routine. While styles change and we see updated versions of key items each season, my quintessential spring style and beauty staples are actually pretty consistent. That said, spring is also a time where I feel super inspired to branch out and try new things, and that definitely filters through into my personal style! My spring style staples are a mixture of tried and true pieces and silhouettes — freshened up with trendy details, colours and accessories. Here’s what’s on my hit list for Spring 2016!

If you’re following me on Instagram, you probably saw this post coming. Lately I’ve been obsessed with all things rust, so I today I thought I would share a few of my favourite pieces with you! I think rust is such a beautiful, warm, inviting colour, while still acting as a neutral — perfect for fall! This post is the first installment in my COLOUR CRUSH series, where I highlight the colour of the moment and show you how to work it into your personal style.
