Country Celebrations

OH CANADA

Monday we celebrated the 146th birthday of our country, Canada. No matter how you celebrated, you all heard the fireworks that were happening in your city. Many of you celebrated by wearing a Canadian t-shirt, or just supporting the colours of our country, red and white.

Below I will showcase my two favorite looks from Canada Day.

STRIPES AND STARS

American’s are also doing a little bit of celebrating this week, as they celebrate Independence Day. This celebration is to commemorate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence that took place on July 4, 1776. The color theme here being red, white and blue.

If you plan on going out at night, here is a semi-casual outfit, if you want to spice it up add on a pair of heels or wedges.

This is the perfect outfit if you have a bbq to go to or if you are attending any festivals or parades! You can change the color of the top to either white, black or blue.

I am sure there are many many parties happening this Thursday in the States. This is an idea of an outfit that you can wear, while still incorporating the colors of the American Flag.

Have fun, enjoy the celebrations, but most importantly be safe!

What to Wear on a Rainy Day

Rain is something that Toronto has seen throughout the Spring Season and now it is coming into the Summer Season as well. For the remaining of the week it is supposed to be raining off and on in the city of Toronto and the surrounding areas. Other major cities like Chicago and New York are also seeing rain this week. Chicago is seeing rain at the beginning of the week, whereas New York is supposed to see rain towards the middle of the week.

Just because there is a little rain or a little thunder, doesn’t mean that we still can’t dress fashionable or chic.

This outfit is an outfit that you could wear on a humid rainy day, like today.

With rain typically comes heat, so sometimes wearing a rain coat on these types of days is just too much. So instead throw on a romper with a cute pair of rain boots and keep a jean jacket with you just in case the day cools down. Always have an umbrella with you if you plan on going outside at all, or even if you are walking from your car to your office. Try and get an umbrella with a subtle or statement pattern!

You can still do heels in the rain, just be careful and make sure they do not have a slippery bottom underneath, because the last thing you want to do is slip. Make sure your shoes have ridges at the bottom of them and if they don’t you can purchase “Grips” which are stick on adhesives and are sold at many shoe stores, including ALDO Shoes. You can either wear it with a dress and a blazer or you can wear it with your black dress pants and a shirt. The only thing I recommend is NOT to wear wide leg trousers that end at the back of your heel, only because you do not want them to get wet as your walking. So stick to more of a skinny leg pant that will not get wet when walking outside in the rain. See outfit below.
