The rainy weather we’ve been having in Calgary lately hasn’t been making it easy to wear summer styles. I’m hoping that the rest of the month will be a little sunnier. I haven’t been wearing a lot of dresses this summer but this printed maxi dress is one of my new favourites! I love the pattern and its very light and breezy making it perfect for a warm summer day! Because of the neckline and the pattern, I chose to wear this Shesso necklace with a shorter chain. It’s nice to have a variety of necklaces in different lengths, this way you can choose one that best suits the dress or top that you are wearing.
Take a wild guess what my favourite colour is, i’ll give you a hint it rhymes with hello. This jacket by Free People is all kinds of perfection. I mean how often do you find something this awesome in your favourite colour? If you are me, the answer is almost never! I love cropped jackets, Especially when worn with a dress. This look is a combination of the feminine and western styles that I love the play around with on a daily basis. This look would be perfect for the Calgary Stampede even though it has just ended. This time of year I get a lot of people commenting on my everyday style and how it’s great that i’m all ready for the Stampede… Little do they know this is how I always dress.
This is easily my all time favorite everyday look. If you ever see me out, nine times out of ten I will be wearing this outfit or something similar to it. I throughly love distressed denim and band tees and I don’t see that changing for quite some time. To be honest, I wasn’t 100% sure about the size of this shirt when I first purchased it. It’s a little baggier than I’m used to so I wasn’t sure but now it’s easily one of my favourite and most worn items of clothing! I’m currently trying to find more shirts that fit similarly so this one can have a break!
Ps. I know those clouds look pretty unfriendly, thankfully we managed to make it out of Horsethief Canyon without getting soaked!
I’ve been searching for a new summer dress for what feels like months. I am very particular when it comes to dresses but it was getting really frustrating. I’ve seen this Free People dress before but for some reason I didn’t try it on until recently. Needless to see it is my absolute favourite! I love everything about it from the colour to the fit. I’m also a big fan of bell sleeves, so that’s an added bonus! For the rest of the look I kept it relatively simple. To accessorize I added one of my favourite hats and this gorgeous triangle necklace by Shesso. The shorter length of the chain is perfectly compliments the neckline of this dress!
This is the second look from last weekends camping trip out in Waiparous. These photos were taken near the waterfall that we camped by. It’s really gorgeous out there and I want to go back asap! Full disclosure, I did both outfit shots the same day. My hair did not look like this after a night of camping, I certainly wish it did! My camping style really isn’t very different from my every style, I just wore more appropriate footwear. This oversized plaid shirt came in really handy when the temperature cooled down at night. On a side note, I don’t wear this hat very often but it was awesome to wear while camping. The string sort of makes me feel a bit like a girl scout but it really comes in really handy when the wind starts to pick up. It’s always nice when you don’t have to worry about losing your hat.
This past weekend Tyrell and I went camping out in Waiparous. It’s the first time i’ve been able to get out this year so I was really excited! We found a gorgeous spot to stay the night next to a creek and a waterfall. Because it was such a beautiful location, it was busy with people stopping to check it out all throughout the day. It wasn’t necessarily ideal but in the end it was worth it to be surrounded by mountains and water. It was a nice relaxing weekend and I can’t wait until our next camping trip!
Before I got too dirty from exploring the waterfall and the area surrounding the site I took some outfit photos. This look is pretty casual for obvious reasons. I started out with one of my favourite t shirts and a pair of jean shorts. To accessories I wore this triangle scarf from Aritzia and one of my old hats. I wore my moccasins for most of the day and switched into my hiking shoes when needed to. I’m not really big on wearing jewelry when I camp because I don’t want to worry about loosing or ruining it, so there is nothing else added to this look.
Because summer is finally here, I figured that I should focus on looks that really suit the weather. What is more weather appropriate than a light dress?! I feel like I havent been wearing dresses as much as I used to. To remedy that, I wore this little black dress under this awesome Love stitch kimono! I also decided to try something new with my hair in the form of a messy side braid. I really don’t mix up my hair routine very often but sometimes a little change is nice!
