#SELOVES: Animal Lovers Give Back with TOMS One for One

Giving back is always a great way to show your love and appreciation to the world we live in. With so much happening in the world around us it’s hard to keep track of everyone in need of protection. TOMS always finds a way to bring awareness to so many different partnerships with their the One for One programs.

This past fall TOMS announced their partnership with the National Geographic Big Cats Collection, as a cat lover the choice to support this great program came easy as I began to read some of the recent statistics of Big Cats in the wild that are disappearing in the world around us. The National Geographic’s Big Cats Initiative has worked to reverse the decline through on-the-ground conversation and educational projects in Africa, Asia, North and South America.

The TOMS and National Geographic Big Cats Collection features a special edition line of footwear, sunglasses and backpacks for men, women and children ranging from $38 to $168 CAD. The collection features design elements representing big cats as well as iconic photography from the National Geographic’s image library. The TOMS One for One Animal Initiative program will drive awareness and funding for global animal protection for Big Cats and with our support and awareness we can come together to help minimize the dangers that Big Cats are facing in the wild.

FASHION: Boots Of The Season

As Canadians, we have no choice but to get used to the change in weather and as the seasons start to change so does our wardrobe, but our footwear doesn’t always have to. Your shoes are a great way to transition your looks from season to season.

Every woman loves a good boot and no matter what season we are in having a great transitional bootie will make all the difference when transitioning from snow to slush and rain to mud. Search out boots that are extremely weather friendly, yes we get it, UGGS may feel comfortably but the convenience and comfort gets compromised quite quickly once the rain and snow hits.

COMBAT
For an edgier look try pairing your everyday trends with a simple and classic boot that’s always in style. This edgy style is a perfect way to make a statement during any season and looks great as you begin to transition your wardrobe from winter to spring.

RUBBER
Rubber boots are my personal go to style that are great to wear during any season. They are convenient, easy to slip on and great for jumping in puddles.

LEATHER
Not only does leather look great with just about anything, it’s water resistant too. A stunning riding boot style is a great look for just about any occasion, it’s also a great way to dress up a simple pair of jeans on a night out without having to fuss too much with your wardrobe.

HEELS
A strong heel is a great look to pair with almost any look from dresses to skirts and trousers to jeans they are a perfect style boot to wear for just about any season and are a great way to transition your look from workwear to evening wear without having to change on the go.

With all these great seasonal boot choices you will have no reason to have cold or wet feet again. They are perfect choices from dressy boots to casual boots that will make a statement and show all of your friends how much of a shoe lover you truly are.
