Summer Wine.

Well, I can’t say that I know what happened with the weather here in Canada, but I do know one thing: I LOVE IT! The sun has finally taken over and fought off that awful cold weather that seemed to want to overstay it’s welcome.

Now that classes and exams are over, I took the week off to relax and get away from it all. This past weekend was a lot of fun, most of which spent in the sun. I also drove down to Calgary with my family on Saturday for some shopping and a change of scenery. I managed to find a few gifts for myself as rewards for finishing a tough year of classes. Surprisingly, the weather in Edmonton has been a lot nicer than Calgary even though they are farther south in the province. That made me eager to come back home after my shopping trip was through, mostly to soak up the last few hours of heat in Edmonton with a nice glass of red wine before going off into a post-shopping coma.

I wanted to keep my outfit really light and easy, because I would be in the car for most of the day (6 hours total round trip). I wore my yellow, oversized linen-blend shirt from Club Monaco with my distressed Zara jeans for a really comfortable and relaxed summer look. I also wore my favourite new scarf from Club Monaco with an awesome tribal print and neutral, earthy colours. I also really love mixing and matching different accessories in the summer to add to my look, so I chose my Michael Kors Tristan Aviators (I love them so much I have them in two colours), and some assorted bracelets paired with my Michael Kors Gold Runway Watch.

And with that, I am off to enjoy another relazing day in the sun – I hope everyone else is enjoying a beautiful start to the summer season!

Concrete Jungle.

This look was all about neutral tones and natural textures. Combining the warm-brown, natural fur with rich, oiled leather boots, army green pants, and an ivory henley to create something really warm and downtown-rustic. I played around with mixing warm and cool tones, gold and silver hardware, and hard vs. soft texture to make this look something urban and utterly winter. It has been in and around the range of -40C for the last few days in Edmonton, so I made sure to dress for absolute warmth – while being careful to avoid overkilling the layers once I have shed my coat for a day of classes inside of the warm studios at my school! Overall, just right!
