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.

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!

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.

Now that spring has sprung in Banff (minus last night’s random snowfall…*sigh*), I thought I would try something  a little different and incorporate white jeans into my wardrobe. Although not just your average white jeans, white skinny jeans with a little edgy, biker twist!

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.
