I talk about my love for band tee’s quite frequently, and I just want to point out that I don’t think that they are all created equal. They most certainly are not. I tend to go for ones featuring classic rock artists that I love, and that have some sort of vintage feel to them. That being said, I’m not calling out anyone who wears a T shirt of a band that they don’t listen to. To each their own. I just personally just really like classic rock, and prefer to wear shirts featuring artists that I like.
This look is a casual everyday style that consists of a few of my favourite items. These billabong shorts have been a staple in wardrobe for a while now. They are really comfortable, and because I always have a hard time finding shorts that I like, and that fit well, I tend to just stick to a few that I love. I suppose it goes without saying, but this tee is easily a favourite of mine. It has a distinctly vintage feel to it, and it’s Jimi Hendrix, so what’s not to love?

This look is both similar and different to my usual style. I have a large collection of Band tee’s so this one fits nicely into the collection. These jeans on the other hand, are much lighter than anything I ever wear. I usually opt for a medium to dark wash when it comes to denim, so this is really stepping out of my comfort zone. Light wash denim has a distinctly summer feel to it, so that makes it perfect for this time of year!

We’ve been having a bit of a heatwave in Alberta lately. It’s been hot, extremely hot. I’m not exactly complaining about it, but i’m just saying that I don’t fair too well in extreme heats. That being said, I’ve been living in denim shorts and tank tops for the most part. Kimono’s and the lightest weight cardigans, are the only things i’ve been using to layer. This kimono from Below the Belt, is one of the recent additions to my ever growing collection. I love the pattern, and the material is incredibly light and flowy making it perfect for summer. To accessorize this look, I added this wide brimmed brixton hat. It’s quickly becoming a favourite of mine! I also added this dainty necklace by Shesso, and a pair of strapy sandals by Steve Madden

When it comes to fashion and style, I like to stick to what I know and love. This summer, that translates into a large collection of kimono’s. There’s just something about them that I love! They are also one of the only way to layer and not over heat in the summer. This one in particular is from Free People, and I love the pattern and colours! For the rest of this look I wore a body suit, and a pair of levi’s shorts. I have a hard time finding shorts that fit well, so I was very happy to find these! To accessorize I kept things relatively simple with a hat and necklace!

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect jumpsuit all spring and summer. I eventually found what I was looking for at Anthropology! It can be tricky to find the right fit when it comes jumpsuits and rompers, but I think this style is pretty versatile. The length doesn’t matter as much when it’s tight at the bottom, as apposed to something that is straight legged. To accessorize this look I kept things really simple with a necklace and bangles. For footwear, I chose a pair of strappy Steve Madden sandals.

It’s been exceptionally hot in Calgary lately, and because of this, i’ve been wearing a lot of light dresses and shorts. As much as I like both of those things, I wanted to mix it up a bit and wear a skirt for a change. This corduroy skirt by BDG is a favourite of mine. It pairs really well a lot of different tops that I own, but I think it goes especially well with this band shirt. I added a belt for an extra touch.
Everybody is into the western theme this month in Calgary thanks to the Stampede. Because I like add a touch of western wear all year round, I keep it going long after the Stampede ends!

One of my favourite things about living in Alberta, is all of the different types of landscapes it has to offer. From the Rocky Mountains, to the Hoodoos of Drumheller, there is such a wide variety. For these photos, I decided to head out to a more rural area for a change. I’m obsessed with the colour yellow, so a canola field was the perfect spot to take photos!
I recently added this wide brim brixton hat to my rather large hat collection. It’s a little bigger than what I usually wear, but I love it! For the rest of the look, I chose a body suit, a pair of jean shorts, and a poncho. We’ve been experiencing a bit of a heatwave in Calgary lately, so the poncho is a little too warm to wear during the day. On the other hand it’s perfect for the cooler summer nights.
