COMBINING TRAVEL AND SHOPPING WITH AIRMILESSHOPS.CA

March 30, 2017

I love online shopping, not going to lie there’s something about the organization and the convenience of shopping from my own home (usually in my pjs) that really appeals to me. And I know y’all like to do it too, so I feel compelled to spill the beans on something you might be missing out on.

I’m pretty much always trying to find ways to get more AIR MILES and with popular shops like Banana Republic (where this GORGEOUS dress is from and on sale I might add), Gap (another favorite of mine – see this previous post with my new favorite jeans), and Sephora (i.e where I buy ALL my makeup) it’s actually super easy.

On airmilesshops.ca you get 1 Mile for every $20 spent on merchandise, so when you’re shopping online it can add up pretty quick!

The quick answer: basically anything – from apparel to electronics, there’s something for everyone. I’ve included some of the popular shops below, but feel free to browse airmilesshops.ca here.

ABOUT THIS LOOK


I’m pretty much obsessed with this floral floor length dress I’d been stalking it online for the better part of winter, so you can imagine my excitement when I found it on sale during an extra 40% off sale! If you’re thinking about grabbing this dress I would size down, as I ended up getting a much smaller size than I normally wear. It’s so comfortable and I can’t wait to wear it to summer weddings when the weather warms up.

This crossbody bag (also from Banana) looks super sleek and teeny (win), but it actually fits so much! I was like the mama bird holding everyone’s things in there during the shows at Toronto Fashion Week. I know this bag is going to be my new go-to bag all summer. It comes in a bunch of colors, and even a gold metallic version which would be so luxe and perfect for spring/summer.

For the last day of Toronto Women’s Fashion Week, I wore this Banana Republic look, and you should know I was definitely wearing long johns underneath it. I am a huge wuss when it comes to the cold, and on this day I think it was -25 with the windchill? And guys, I am not about that life.

While I wouldn’t normally suggest wearing a leather jacket when it feels like minus a million I wanted to give you something to look forward to for spring. I loveeeeee leather jacket weather (I mean it’s basically the best right?) there’s something about pairing a leather jacket with traditionally feminine things that has always appealed to me. That tension of hard and soft is always a sartorial win in my book.

Getting ready, I kind of had a wardrobe crisis and I may or may not have delayed our uber because the shoes, and jacket I originally planned to wear were just not working. This is what happens when you change your mind super last minute and plan your outfit while getting your eyelash extensions done.

The moto jacket, I wanted to wear while I love it (see it here) was too long, and it hit me at the hip in a very weird spot to be paired with this dress. I can’t wait to wear it with jeans or something more narrow though because it’s sooooo pretty (I love the high shine) unfortunately, it just didn’t work with this look.

Then to add insult to injury the shoes I originally pulled were super slippery and kept falling coming off. When I tell you I was running around like a mad woman trying to make these last minute changes when we only had 20 minutes to get ready, to begin with, I was actually a raving lunatic. You should have seen my room when I got back haha it looked like a bomb went off in my suitcase because I think I tried on everything my friend Sarah and I both owned to arrive at this look.

Does this ever happen to you guys? I remember in high school (when I was much more indecisive) my room always looked like a bomb went off because I would go through about 20 different outfits before I was “ready” for school. These days I’m usually pretty good, but while traveling with limited items this was definitely a bit of struggle.

I’m a super visual person so I always need to try things on to get the right feel, which is why you might find it running that I love ordering things online from Banana, Gap or Sephora because I can easily return to the store with ease (if I need to). And the best part I don’t have to worry about hanging on to a receipt because it’s always in my email. And now bonus I can even get AIR MILES Reward Miles at the same time, and I’m one step closer to more adventures like these!


 

Happy Shopping Babes! Hope you enjoyed today’s post. Thanks to my very talented friend Denis Duquette for these photos!
