Beating the Heat

This was a look from a few weeks back when Edmonton got hit with really high temperatures and a pretty healthy dose of humidity (so, basically, it was hellish for me and I spent the better part of three days being incredibly cranky and uncomfortable). It's weird looking back these now because it's deliciously chilly and crisp out now.

But I digress, this is me trying to beat the heat. And while the colour palette is dark this top and pants are both made from really lightweight and very breathable fabric and so I did manage to stay moderately cool. Take that summer!

pants: RW Winter and Co / top: Express / sandals: Spring / necklace: Simons 

In other news, I attended another show at Western Canadian Fashion Week.

Bano eeMee, Suka Clothing, and LUXX Ready-to-Wear all put on inspired shows. Suka was especially stunning (long live harness-esque details!).

you don't even look the slightest uncomfortable in these pics! I am glad it's getting cooler (and cold at your end!) and cannot wait until full on Fall is here. I LOVE that necklace!

Love your hair! And loving the blue tones in this outfit. I feel your pain about the heat...I'm a pain in the ass most of the year because I'm in Florida :)

I'm really loving that calming blue color on you! And that shirt looks so lightweight and easy.

Fall heatwaves are the worst - don't get me wrong, I'm not a huge fan of the rain storms we've been having, either, but at least I get to wear my sweaters! I think you did a lovely job with this look, though, the blue shades are gorgeous together.
