Colours of Spring

Colours of Spring

I'm finally feeling my creative juices flowing again!  It's taken awhile.  Creativity isn't something that just surfaces at my beck and call.  For me creativity is a sort of magic that seems to just happen when it happens. Seemingly at random.  And when it hits you grasp it and run.  It's deeply associated with the seasons both figuratively and literally.  And it's finally March!  We've turned a corner and I feel hope and creativity returning all at once.

Dressed In Holiday Style

Dressed In Holiday Style

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a style post.  Dressing up is one of my favourite things  (no matter how impractical given the weather) and jumpsuits happen to be my favourite thing to dress up in (also impractical because using the bathroom becomes an art).  I just couldn't say no when I came across this jumpsuit a few months ago.  I could immediately envision the entire outfit: vintage fur, gold sparkles, and a gorgeous red lip (and all the fabulous Christmas parties I would attend in that outfit).

Style // Finally Fall

Weather is a big topic of conversation in Calgary.  Truth be told, Calgarians are never very happy with the weather.  The only chance Mother Nature has in winning our favour is when it's November, we are anticipating snow and instead, we get 20+ degree celsius temps.  We never had a chance for fall until this last week happened.

Style // Calgary Stampede

It's that time of year again!  The Calgary Stampede is in town.  I've been to the Calgary Stampede too many times to count.  The city is abuzz for 10 days.  I have to admit that since I've lived here most of my life I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the stampede, however, each year it draws me back in and I find myself purusing the midway, checking out all the random new things they thought to deep-fry and watching people from all walks of life morph into cowboys.

I'm a low maintenance hair person.  Like, as in, I don't own a hair dryer, I use dry shampoo more than actual shampoo, and up until last year I hadn't had my hair cut or coloured in 2 years.  I'd like to now use this opportunity to swear to you that I have very high standards when it comes to hygiene and it does actually matter to me that my hair look intentionally messy and somehow put together.  My hair routine looks something like this: wash/condition 2x/week,  allow to air dry, loosely throw a few curls through my hair, wait until the next wash and repeat.  It's also rare that I wear my hair in any other way other than down or in a high pony tail.  Now that I've convinced you about how low maintenance my hair is.. there are a few hair styles that have gotten my attention this summer and couldn't shake the idea of wanting to give them a try.

As far as I'm concerned there is always a reason to get dressed up.  I read something Taylor Swift once said about why she is always photographed being dressed up while out and about in New York and she said, "Because New York is a city worth getting dressed up for".  How very Carrie Bradshaw of her right?
