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!

New Vintage.

Army green, rich navy, antique white, classic brown, and bronze metal accessories. I have been playing around with these colour tones a lot lately, and it totally gives a playful spin on the great vintage military look – without actually going camo. This look is all about texture and colour with smooth leather accents on the blazer collar, the boots, and the satchel paired with a roughed-up vintage bronze watch and wrap bracelet.¬†Even though camouflage is a huge trend, it is often not done very well and can end up looking cheap. I haven’t found just the right camouflage pieces yet, so instead I opt to expand the palette you see mixed in camouflage across my entire outfit instead of on just one piece. This is an excellent winter look that will transition nicely into spring because the colours are neutral and earthy. Best of all, when the fashion world says camouflage is out you still have great basics to wear, leaving no need to clear out a closet full of military pieces. When you wear this new vintage look, there is no need to hide away in the bushes – show off your camo palette with pride and don’t be afraid to mix it up!
