Before The Leaves.
These photos are from a few weeks back when I went to visit my grandparents at the start of the warm weather in Edmonton. I can’t say the car trip was terribly long, it’s only about 20 minutes away from where I live, but the transitioning weather and warm sunshine made the whole day something quite memorable.
Sometimes taking a drive with the sunroof open and your favourite music blasting is just what the doctor ordered. I assure you though, I was not taking these pictures while driving because I was in the passenger seat – safety first kids!
I kept my outfit really simple, by wearing faded colours and pieces that look like they’ve been worn in. I love a relaxed, casual summer look for everyday outings! I stuck to the tried and true navy and red with accents of silver, white and black.
I hope that everyone is having an amazing summer so far, and I apologize for the lack of posts this month. May is crazy for any University student, because recovering after finals is comparable to recovering from being hit by a bus.
Have a great day!

There is nothing like the month of March to help us flash forward into thoughts of warm, sunny days and amazing getaways. I was really inspired to create a photo shoot that captured some of the major trends this season, such as pastels, monochromatic color, and jewel-tones. I wanted to evolve these trends into my vision of a sunny, ocean-side retreat and I am thrilled with the outcome! Without further adieu, enjoy my Resort 2013 photo shoot and #escape with me!
I styled the models in some amazing pieces of Club Monaco, BB Dakota (via the Bamboo Ballroom), Simons, and Michael Kors. I had some amazing accessories from Amor Jewelry and Plum Tipsy, also provided by the Bamboo Ballroom.
I want to thank Claire Flook and Reid Gillis for being amazing models, Scot Allan for the hair and makeup talent, and The Bamboo Ballroom for providing part of the amazing wardrobe I had to work with. Also, a thank you goes out to Fanny Kung for allowing me to pull clothes from her amazing personal wardrobe.

As you may know from some of my previous outfit posts, I have been working on incorporating my new spring pieces into my existing winter wardrobe and coming up with some really great looks! I just recently bought these amazing pale blue (almost turquoise) pants and they are absolutely going to be an amazing spring essential. For now, in lieu of spring, This outfit was all about exploring and reinventing primary colours. I wanted to create an outfit with a pop of springy blue, rich red, yellow, and brown for some real depth along an age old palette. It’s not quite warm enough to dig out my pale-coloured linen shirts for summer just yet, so instead I am going to make due with these rich tones and enjoy what’s left of my chances to dress for colder weather. That said, I absolutely cannot wait until spring has finally, well, sprung in Canada – I simply choose to make the most of what I have to work with in the meantime!

I am in a constant state of California dreaming – thinking about summer, sunshine, and bright colours! As a result of this, I have decided that I will dress to reject all things winter and cold-related (as best I can without freezing to death in the meantime). Other Canadians will totally understand this feeling of cabin fever that only sunshine and warm weather can cure. I typically start breaking out my Spring wardrobe around March 1st, depending on the weather in Edmonton at that time. This year, there was something different – I just couldn’t wait. And frankly, who says you should? I think that the best way to transition into your spring wardrobe is to start mixing those pieces into what you’ve been wearing throughout the winter season. You can get some really interesting colour combinations, it brightens up your (cold, dark) day to have a little pop of colour with your dark neutrals, and it just gives you that little dose of hope necessary to break on through into Spring!
With this outfit I ended up playing around with mixing pale, cool toned greens and blues, with small pops of yellow and red. I am in love with the new Spring shirt collection from Club Monaco, and I have been back several times picking up the amazing new arrivals. The colours, and patterns they are releasing this year are so fun and fresh it makes it hard to say no – even when you know you shouldn’t! This blue/white/red plaid is no exception, and is one of my latest favourites. What is great about these pieces is how incredibly versatile they are. I can go for a dressier look, or I can leave the shirt unbuttoned with either a tank or v-neck in the summer for a casual, beachy look. Once again, buying a well-made, and well-fitted piece is never a bad idea – but rather, a good investment!
