If you’ve been following me from the beginning, you’ll know that Global Garcon’s always been hosted by WordPress. I’m super excited to announce that from now on I’ll be posting on my new website, www.globalgarcon.net, which is hosted by Blogger. Of course this was a tough decision but Blogger has customization tools that are better suited for me and what I foresee for Global Garcon in the future…Over the past year and a half almost 1,700 of you decided to click the “Follow” button. Because I’m switching from WordPress to Blogger I’m basically starting from the beginning. But at the end of the day I’m not afraid of losing followers, it’s the connections that I’ve made and developed on WordPress that are important.
For as long as I can remember I’ve always had a soft spot for super simple tees with little to no branding. So when I laid my eyes on this square print beauty from Oak +Fort not only was it love at first sight but I knew I had to add it to my ever-expanding collection of simple, monochromatic clothing.
Even though it’s summer in the Canadian Rockies I love draping my favourite faux leather jacket from Forever 21 over my shoulders. First off because I think it looks great but most importantly because you can never predict the weather in Banff. I also decided to sport this awesome Parisian inspired tee from H&M and a pair of light wash jeans.
I’ve admired Stan Smith Adidas for quite some time now and I’m happy to say that I finally found the perfect pair. Not only are they super comfy but the striped canvas definitely sets them apart from the leather versions tons of bloggers and fashion fanatics already have in their closets (often with green or red detailing).
Thanks to the one and only Tommy Ton (my favourite street style photographer), I was able to sip on my coffee this morning and scroll through a handful of fabulous street style pics from the CFDA Awards. Because I’ve become such a huge fan I thought I would share a few of my favourite photos with you in today’s post via Style.com!
Let’s face it, Pelayo Diaz really can do no wrong. Especially when it comes to footwear!…Lately I’ve been loving how he’s been sporting sandals in his OOTD’s which totally inspired me to start a collection of my own. At the moment my favourite pair is from Aldo because they’re beyond comfy and the black and white detailing pairs super well with my current spring/summer wardrobe.
I love wearing classic cardigans as transitional pieces during spring and early fall. At the moment my favourite is from Oak + Fort because the fit is incredible and the material is light and breathable. Another classic piece that I’ve been adoring lately is this bright orange Hermès Evelyne bag. It holds my daily essentials (and more) but it also allows me to go hands-free and take plenty of photos for Instagram with my Samsung smartphone!
Most of the clothes I’m loving lately are bold, bright and essentially the complete opposite of the all-black pieces I often sported throughout fall and winter. From neutral t-shirts and long sleeves (often striped) to these raspberry red pants from Zara, I can’t seem to give up incorporating more colour into my wardrobe.
Because I’ve been wearing so much white lately, I decided to darken things up and sport my favourite t-shirt from Zadig and Voltaire, a pair of Acne Studios jeans and black Vans. What I love most about this t-shirt is the bold pop of colour on the back and the semi-distressed detailing on the neck, arms and around the bottom of the shirt. It’s casual and comfy, yet has an unexpected edginess from the vampire graphic that I fell in love with the moment I saw it.
On March 28, 2015, I uploaded a post featuring a few of my favourite street style photos from Seoul Fashion Week. In that post, I mentioned that South Korean and Asian fashion in general should be showcased and given far more credit than its gotten in the past…Fast forward a month or so and tada! Karl Lagerfeld showcased Chanel’s Cruise 2016 collection in Seoul, South Korea with quite the influence from traditional Korean clothing.
