After a bit of a hiatus, I am back! And I am self-employed, you guys! This is beyond exciting.
I thought I’d share some outfit inspiration for today with you. I love Canada Day–spending time with friends, eating good food, maybe catching some fireworks, & reflecting for a few moments about why I am so very grateful to be Canadian. This is a pretty great country, you guys. Not without its problems, but it’s pretty awesome. I am so lucky to have been born into a place where I am able to express myself freely, have rights as a woman, & be able to follow my passions.
Anyway, enough me… here are some outfits! I put these together because I believe that it’s possible to be both patriotic & stylish–you won’t catch me in an oversized Canadian flag T-shirt or a baseball cap that you can drink beer out of!
If you, like me, will be heading to a backyard barbecue this afternoon, keep it simple. Make sure you wear a hat (& sunscreen!), and bring a scarf in case it gets chilly in the evening…
If you’d rather head down to Parliament Hill to check out some bands, a cute top with red jeans will show your Canadian pride without screaming “CANADA!” at people.
If skipping the crowds altogether and going out for a quiet dinner for two is more your speed (eat some fantastic Canadian cheese just for me!), a red dress pops with white heels & a turban. Provide some visual interest with some mixed metallic jewelry & a fantastic minaudière!
Have a great, safe Canada Day, friends. Imbibe responsibly!
