Heat Wave

We’ve had a bit of a heatwave in Vancouver over the past couple of weeks. And since us West-coasters are essentially useless when it comes to any sort of weather “extremity”, there’s been a lot of devising on ways to keep cool. One such solution has been to wear a lot of light coloured, loose pieces. Baggy clothing can be a hard to pull off well for those of us who aren’t model-thin, but defining the waist is one amazing trick that really does let you get away with all kinds of things. These high waisted culottes from a few years ago (seen back in 2011 here!) have really served their purpose well, and have sort of become my personal standard for any shorts I will own from here on out. What have you been living in this summer?

Off to the Races

Next weekend, I’ll be spending a day at the races at Vancouver’s¬†Deighton Cup.¬†Naturally, deciding what to wear for the event has been half the fun! I’d initially planned to sport a classic dress for the occasion but, upon coming across this black jumpsuit at LOFT Park Royal, those desires immediately left my mind. Paired with pops of red (of course) and the most beautiful, pearl adorned white fascinator by a local designer, this sleek number is lovely canvas to create a classic look with a modern, slightly unusual edge… and it will be refreshingly comfortable to move in on the day, as well!

Purchase tickets for the event here, and be sure to check out what my girls Alex and Alicia will be wearing, as well!
