Girl of the Week: Julie Blackburn


Spotted… Vancouver, BC.

Wearing… Mavi top, Wish vest, Minimum pants, jacket is a Winners find and ALDO shoes.

Occupation… People & Culture Manager at Recon Instruments, Hairstylist.

My style is… I tend to mix and match my styles. It’s usually sporty and chic, classy and edgy. I’ve also always loved jeans and a white tee.

Style inspiration… I find it everywhere – blogs, Instagram, Gastown, and of course my girlfriends. We’re all so different and have our own sense of style. We’re always sharing clothes so I always get to switch it up.

Favourite thing in my closet… My peacoat in Air Force Blue from ZARA.

Beauty product I can’t leave the house without… Light pink lipstick.

Favourite song… I’m all over Beyonce’s new album (how can you not, really) – my fave right now is Blow, plus the video will make you want to jump back into the 70’s and strap on the rollerskates.

Favourite blogs & stores… Gorgana & Griffin, Beth Richards Swimwear, Institute Magazine, Fast Company Design, and ShoeMint.

Favourite Instagram… Jane Aldridge of Sea of Shoes, Justfemale, Jessie Bush of wethepeoplestyle and ASOS Fashion Finder.

What do you love doing on the weekend… If I’m not coaching or playing volleyball, I’m probably going for a bike ride on my cruiser on the seawall. Then, whiskey in the evenings. Always whiskey.

Words to live by… “If you want to get something you’ve never had you have to do something you’ve never done.”  Also, “I can’t concentrate in flats.”

Follow me on… Instagram and Twitter
