Cool in the Heat

What does summer mean to you? For me, it's soft, flowing hair and accessories, flowers, and bright colours. Okay, so this outfit isn't particularly summery, the blue top and silver skirt were too cool toned for that, but oh well. I tried to add more of that summer feel by adding a flower headband. It's my go-to to make things feel feminine and fresh. Perfect for the season, right?

Summer Fun

What screams summer more than flowers and bright colours? Perhaps sales? That's right, I was shopping some more, and bought a new blazer and sunglasses. It was one of those times where you walk out of the store, and you know you're going to regret it if you come back in a day or two and whatever you wanted was sold out.

An Asymmetrical Love

Here's another go-to outfit for me. I'm very big on skirts and a loose top for a simple, chic outfit. Add a few interesting accessories like these Jeffrey Campbell Litas and you're good to go where-ever. I'm currently on the lookout for a new hat. I think maybe a wine red, felt one. I'm really starting to love pairing them with everything I own, and yet I only have two. This needs to change, stat.

Sea Glass

I'm not the biggest fan of denim, but I'm getting there. Normally I would just wear this denim shirt with a mini skirt and tank top, but when I saw these light-washed jeans at Zara, I knew I'd be able to pull off the ultra-cool denim on denim style I never thought I'd be able to wear.

Summer Must Haves

Summer in Calgary is temperamental. One moment it's sunny and 30 degrees (Celsius) out, and the next it's thunder-storming. Hell, we've even had snowstorms in July. At the moment, my summer wardrobe actually includes more jeans than what I would normally wear in the winter. Why? I don't know, but I figure I must subconsciously think I'm in Australia. Short skirts and dresses in the winter, maxi skirts and jeans in the summer. Weird, I know (and yes, the majority of my friends think I'm crazy, or, if you're my family, stupid). Perhaps I'll write a post on how to change your summer wardrobe into a winter one.
Regardless of my awkward dressing habits, I have a few summer staples to get me through the menopausal weather, along with any travelling I might be doing in warmer, more humid parts of the globe.

Botkier Fall 2013

Botkier Valentina

Botkier is one of my favourite designer bag brands. They're chic, and they don't break my bank account. Balenciaga, I'm looking at you.

Went a bit spend heavy shopping all the summer sales... And I still want more. Damn you online shopping and Zara and Aritzia. This is too much for my bank account to handle. Okay, not really. Normally, I wouldn't be buying so much at once, but a few things happened this summer, and I won't be able to go on the trip I originally planned. At least I'll still be going to Vancouver and Seattle come August. One day I swear I'll leave Calgary and live somewhere.... warmer? More fashionable? Hopefully without major heat waves. *cough, cough, New York*

Easy Peasy

I think we can officially say summer is here! Look at all these flowers (and grass and weeds) outside my house. Perfect day for a super easy outfit, especially when I need to run errands around town. I finally bought a remote for my camera, so hopefully I'll figure it out and be able to take pictures a little quicker. Although running to and from the camera in ten seconds was probably good exercise.

Summer Weather

It's Stampede week and all I'm doing is working. I've been to the Calgary Stampede plenty of times, so it doesn't hold much of an allure for me anymore, except to spend time with friends and take in a concert or two. Unfortunately, I work all week, so I won't be able to make it, but these wedge sneakers would have been an adorable substitute for cowboy boots.
