My Stampede Look

Hi,

Yesterday was a long day but it was fun (check previous post & instastories).

Calgary Stampede runs from July 6 – July 15 2018 and the biggest event in Calgary bringing tourists from all over the world. From chuckwagon races, world-famous rodeo, concerts, food (creative combos), attractions all celebrating western heritage.

If you were wondering what outfit I wore to the Stampede grounds, here it is. I wanted something chic yet casual. ¬†It’s not secret that plaid shirts are one of the key elements for stampede style. I didn’t want the typical button down plaid shirt so I opted for an off-shoulder plaid top creating a more chic look. What do you think of the bold red lips? Calgary MUA Annika slayed this face, if you are dark-skinned and looking for a makeup artist she’s the ONE.

Stampede Styling – Collaboration with Southcentre Mall

Hi,

Sometime last week, a PR company reached out to me after watching a few of my insta-stories asking if I was interested in a stampede style focused partnership with Southcentre Mall. I wasn’t really planning to attend Stampede this year but this was a good push. If you are wondering what is stampede? Calgary Stampede is the greatest outdoor show on earth celebrating western heritage, culture and community spirit. So back to my story:), I was so excited and I accepted the challenge. why? It was because I’m not one to dress up as a cowgirl so I was pretty sure there were more women like me having that same mentality. I wanted to show the different stampede chic looks based on my personality and style. So this is also a recap of my day finding the right outfits for stampede.

Moroccan Vibes

Hi,

How have you all been? I have been dreaming about Morocco for a while now and I decided to do a moroccan inspired shoot. Hopefully I get to do one in Morocco soon:).

What’s your take on floral print wrap tops? I love them because they are easy to style and has become the “IT” shirt for the summer. Wrap tops can be styled with denim, shorts, skirts or even worn as a jacket. Morocco is known for the vibrant colours and breathtaking scenery. Zara’s collection has definitely encouraged me to visit Morocco with the Boho vibes and the moroccan inspired prints. Linen is on the hottest IT list for summer hence the linen shorts paired with the print.

Never Too Matcha

First, what colour won’t you be caught dead in? I would love to know. Lime Green or Lime Punch is one of 2018’s Pantone colour of the year and has been seen in Spring/Summer 2018 collections. Lime Punch was used by, among others, Anya Hindmarch, Pringle of Scotland and Tom Ford. The first two used the colour for sportwear-inspired fashion, while Ford used the colour for an evening dress. Designer¬†Marta Jakubowski used this shade to make eye-catching bodysuits, while NYC designer Maryam Nassir Zadeh created bold coats and jackets.

Olive You Berry Much

Hi,

The great thing about Pinterest is that it inspires me to play with different colour combinations. I recently came across a colour palette that I am so excited to try during my next blog shoot. I asked a couple of my followers about my next hair do and I concluded on braided cornrows. My little sister calls me a sexy ant with this look, I guess I can take it lol. You know my love for linen this summer is growing so when I came across this pants at Oak and Fort in Chinook Mall, I wanted to have it. This pants are not on sale and they are cotton (not linen). I adore the colour and the high-waisted detail. Also, I was happy that I didn’t have to hem the pants #petitegirlproblems. For the petite girls out there, Oak and Fort definitely caters to our market so I guess they have truly found a customer.
