Due to the nature of my work, I’ve been out of the country for the summer.. almost every year since 2006.
Last year, I managed to stay in the country but, I was still doing field work in northern Alberta… and company protocol (and my dislike for bug bites) demanded full length pants and shirts.
While back in the city I had several occasions to go out for drinks with friends and when I did, I was surprised to discover that I owned very little summer clothing. All of my shorts are nearly a decade old.
So, it’s spring and it’s time to look into spring-summer transition pieces… clearly, after a decade out of the loop, I needed some advice. Here’s where I went:
Becky Kung has styled me so many times the last couple of years and every time I see the results of her expertise, I am totally blown away. Becky’s style is often far more bold than my own but, there are so many fun takeaways from her website about lengths, shapes, colours, prints and patterns.
Kayla Short is a wonderful blogger from Halifax whose style is a little more similar to my own. I really enjoy browsing through the outfits that she puts together. Between her and Becky there are so many more items that I pull off a shelf/hanger to try on that before, I would have missed.
Taylor MacDonald is all of the different kinds of amazing and her advice is super on point: Have questions about your wardrobe and/or look? Then you should ask them!
Her one on one method will help you navigate your way into the look that’s best for you.
How do you dress for the summer season?

Until Next Time!
