Happy May, everyone!!
Personally, I find dressing for spring the most difficult, especially in Calgary. A few weeks ago, I took out my summer clothes, since we were fortunate to enjoy a taste of spring, but three days later, my summer dreams were drowned out by an April snowstorm.
The struggle is constant – wear a jacket? Don’t wear one? And if I do, do I wear a light one or a heavier one? The weather app is front and centre on my phone, and always open.
The fact that we Calgarians almost always have to coordinate some kind of jacket with our outfit can add a pretty hefty expense to almost every single ensemble. SO, I am constantly on the lookout for cute, inexpensive outerwear. This look was created around this blush coloured faux leather jacket, which I picked up from Forever 21 for only $27 (on sale). Fun tip: I love Forever 21 for super trendy, fun pieces that I know I will only wear a few times. The thing is, the actual store overwhelms the crap out of me, so I only peruse online. Almost every single long weekend the Forever 21 website has an extra 50% (sometimes only 30%) off sale items, which is when I stock up!
