So the weather is finally changing here in Calgary, so that means summer is creeping up on me.... bleh.
As much as I'd prefer to keep layering up, it's time to shed those and attempt to work in some summer items to my closet.

Something I always get excited for in the summer, is awesome sunglasses. I'm lucky that we get a ton in at work, and can stock up there! But for now, these three are definitely my favorites! Check out American Apparel's Vintage sunglasses here!

Another thing I'm a really big fan of this year is STRIPES! I'm Obsessed! Again, Apparel's selection of stripes has been so great lately, that I've stocked up on as much as I can! I have this weird goal to wear an all stripe outfit, so look forward to that! Click here to check out all the amazing striped products from american apparel!

Denim's been a new love of mine. I don't know why, but I've fallen in love with it! Same with the striped outfit, I really want to wear an all denim outfit (Canadian Tux life) so again, look forward to that as well! Click here if you want to check out American Apparel's awesome denim line (sadly, the bottom top is from Zara, but feel free to check and see if it's still there!)

Bold choices are also something I've been looking at. Neons, and Metallics have caught my eye lately! Though I still have yet to wear the button up, I plan on doing so very soon! So check for that!

Patterns have always been a love of mine, but I'm really down for brighter ones lately. I have a few new pieces on their way to me that I'll definitely have to post soon (once they arrive). is awesome for patterns along with Zara, American Apparel, and Urban Outfitters. Check them out!

 I'm not the biggest fan of pastels, but I really like mint! Apparel has some great mint products coming out in retail stores and has some classics that are already there! Definitely check them out for some mint if you love it as much as I do!

Now to play with my summer favorites, I put together a few looks with some of the items used to give an idea of how I would style them! I hope I gave you some summer ideas and I'd love to hear about your favorite summer trends!
