Squad Goals!

I am a goal focused person.


In order to push myself I set goals.  It helps me grow, achieve and strive on a daily basis.


A great t-shirt reminder never hurts!  Suburban Riot’s t-shirts are a favorite go to of mine.  Inexpensive, fun fashion pick me ups.


Imagine the happy squeal when a fashion blogger named reversecommuter found a t-shirt company called Sub-urban Riot?!  Match made in heaven!

Purchase a shoulder showing top NOW!  Add jeans or a great pair of shorts – mine are from H&M, top is from the incredible Tanya Taylor.



Next time you find yourself carrying groceries, working out at SoulCycle or lifting a child – remember to do a couple of extra reps as this style is all about exposing the shoulders!

What Wear Where?

Weak.  Again.  🙂

reversecommuter is powerless against JOSA Tulum.

The black and white rustic – why yes please.  The navy and white striped deep v halter – obviously.  The hot pink long sleever – um, yeah, I TOTALLY need that too!

JOSA Tulum is THE ONLY boutique I hit when on vacation here – I know, that is one loaded statement!

After a loooong and arduous day on the beach, a stroll into JOSA Tulum invites you into a rainbow of design, color, style and creativity.  Urban beach cool lingering ever so quietly amongst the palms and salty sea air.

One other tidbit – JOSA Chiquita has launched and OF COURSE reversecommuter had to buy a bunch of it for my daughter.  Only worry I have now is how I am going to get her out of it – complete loveathon!!!!!!!!!

Hot Boots = Happy Mama!

Hello, my name is reversecommuter and I am a shoe addict.  Boots too.

BootsC

Cannot help myself.  So many to choose from and so many varied heights, colors, textures, designers – Oh My!!!!

BootsB

Really, is it a bad thing?

BootsE

 

These are Car Shoe boots – it is a line by Prada but sort of under the radar in North America.  I found these in Italy and fell in love, cannot resist a platform boot, get the height but still able to chase after my bambinos!

bootsA

 

Car Shoe boots, Gucci bag, MOTHER jeans.

Don’t Get Fleeced!

Fleece is not an option.

jkt4

Plain and simple it is time to mix it up.

jkt5

Find a fun jacket, opt for wool or cashmere.

jkt1

While juggling a kazillion errands, children, finances etc, why not wear something that makes you feel a little like a princess?

jkt6

DVF coat, MOTHER skinny jeans, old school Gucci loafers, Tom Ford sunglasses.

Iman, reversecommuter and Shoes!

Last time I hung out with Iman (how fun is that as a sentence?!?!  click here to revisit), she made a point of apologizing for her choice of shoes.  “It is always about the shoes…except today, for medical reasons.”

Well said Iman…(insert sympathy shot here)….

Suddenly I find myself in the land of forbidden heels, as in reversecommuter is forbidden to wear heels.  I KNOW!  IT’S DOWN RIGHT CRUEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  (it’s just a running injury but it does affect shoe selection)

boots1

Pretty decent reason to pull out the over the knee boots.  Lemons, lemonade, yaddah yaddah!

boots2

J Brand jeans, Fiorini + Baker boots, Boy London flannel houndstooth shirt (warm option instead of a sweater).

Hat Attack

If there is one thing this past weekend’s heat wave taught me, it is the bigger the better when talking hats!

Amazing how cool a big floppy hat can keep you.  My current personal fave is found at Shan. Click here to go BA-NA-NAS over Shan (purrrrrrrrrrr).  Happily reversecommuter is about to hit that Toronto boutique in an impressive manner!
