I find it so fascinating how much styles and trend interpretation changes based on location. Here in Vancouver, I’m always pulled towards a relaxed, casual style and, at the moment, a very neutral palette. Which, has the benefit of comfort and simplicity, but I have to admit, gets repetitive. While we were in Chicago, I mentioned to my sister in law that I was almost shocked by all the bright colour that everyone was wearing! It was so fun and refreshing, and I left the midwest determined to ease some other hues back into my wardrobe.
So, the day we were leaving for the cottage, I raced to the mall looking for pieces that are easy to wear, but that have some colour and pattern. I ended up finding a couple great frocks on sale at LOFT, including this dress. I especially love how this piece will easily translate into the fall as well, it’s always a bonus when something can be worn cross-seasons!
What about you? What is the fashion scene like where you live?
