I feel so refreshed after having spent the past week in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, for a client’s wedding. I feel grateful to be able to travel anywhere for my job and do what I love. What a awesome start to the summer; I’m still on vacation mode! To be honest, I feel extremely fortunate to come home to my beautiful city of Vancouver, where nature abounds! The green grass, shimmering beaches, coral sunsets and majestic mountains; all of which offer great inspiration to draw from, especially for fashion and style
It’s funny how the colors in my outfit parallel the colors that surround my seaside setting in this week’s style series (green, cream, blue and orange and silver). If you look at the color wheel, blue and green are next to each other on the cool side (tertiary colors), while orange opposes them on the warm side, thus making them complimentary to one another. Colors that are contrasting or “complimentary” will always go together and when you mix in a third color (either cool or warm) with a neutral metallic accent, your outfit will look complete! (Style Sacrament #3 – DLDB: Dark, Light, Dull, Bright)
I’m loving this seasons new “Ugly” sandals (…ugly is the new pretty!). These were so in style when I was in high school (almost 20 years ago – YIKES!). My parents used to call them “Jesus shoes”. Well they weren’t wrong, as it feels like I’m walking on water when I’m wearing them! Plus, they seem to work with so many things in my wardrobe!
I went natural and glowy this week. I’m wearing Make Up For Ever Face and Body Foundation #34 mixed with Tom Ford Skin Illuminator in “Fire Lust”. I dusted on NARS “Laguna” bronzing powder and on my lips is the Tom Ford Lip Shimmer in “Solar Gold”.
Enjoy the sunshine, friends!
