[CLOSED] Win Made to Measure Boots, Plus Kendall Shares Her Perfect Saturday

3-minute read

While you're making your Saturday plans today, ask yourself: have you entered our Sacramento Street x Poppy Barley Perfect Saturday Pinterest contest? You could win a pair of free boots (valued at $450), handmade to your exact measurements and design specifications, plus $550 towards anything else you pin on your "Perfect Saturday" board (check out all the details over at Sacramento Street and a snapshot of the 100+ boards that have already been created). Here, our co-founder Kendall Barber shares - in detail - what she'd do on her Perfect Saturday, and what pair of Poppy Barley boots she'd be wearing while doing it...

I love mornings. On weekdays, I’m usually up by 5:30am. On weekends, I “sleep in” until 7am. I always start my day with coffee and a read of the Globe and Mail, the New York Times and my favorite blogs. Then it’s action time: I glance at my email and map out my day on Evernote (the best productivity tool for a visual person like me!).

For breakfast, I’m obsessed with banana pancakes. Loaded with nutrition, a stack of these delicious pancakes keeps me satisfied until lunch. And, they are so easy to make: 1 banana, 2 eggs, 2 tbsp ground flax and a drop of vanilla. Blend all ingredients in blender and pour into a grill greased with a bit of coconut oil.

Every Saturday morning, I run with my girlfriends. My next race is the Boston Marathon in April. Marathon training means literally my entire Saturday morning is dedicated to running – 2-3 hours running through the beautiful Edmonton river valley. After a long run what I crave most is a green juice (4 curly kale leaves, 2 pears, a handful of spinach, a few sprigs of mint, ½ a lemon and a 1-inch piece of fresh ginger).

Saturday afternoons are for friends, shopping and great books. I like to be casual but styled. My go-to outfit: Rag & Bone Jeans, Everlane white tee, Smythe Blazer and #PoppyBarley Everyday City Boots. I love grocery shopping. I sift through cookbooks looking for inspiration for the upcoming week. I make a detailed list in Evernote and dash off the farmers’ market, grocery store or organic market. (P.S. These adorable reusable grocery bags are making it easier for me to stick to my New Year’s resolution.)

Baking is one of the activities I enjoy the most. I love baking goodies for friends. This is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe ever. (And I’ve tried hundreds of variations!)

The best Saturday evening is spent with my husband and friends. This is how the night should go: start in a crowded wine bar sampling grapes. Move to a late dinner reservation at Corso 32 where chef Daniel Costa transports me to Italy with outstandingly fresh food, inspired recipes and a very cozy space.

I am happiest if I’m in bed by midnight…

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
