With the RBC Bluesfest creeping up, I thought I would put together three outfits that would best describe my Festival Fashion style.
I think we all have had our share of “trendy” accessory overload. In each styled outfit below, I proposed a light balance of classics paired with only a few focal points. You don’t want to look loud and overdone.
I don’t want to make this post too wordy, so please just enjoy the pics!
1- Light chambray dress, Love Bird floppy hat and Aldo platform mules.
2. White House of Harlow Sweater, bright floral pompom shorts, yellow MK thong sandals and sunnies.
3. Boho Kimono, white lace shorts, black racer back tank and Pendleton wool blanket with leather carrier
I am happy to announce that I will be representing on the #StyleSquad at RBC Ottawa Bluesfest this year! We will be covering festival fashion for 6 days. If you see one of us, pose for the iphone and let them capture the moment. We will be sharing the best of the best on social media and Ottawa Newspapers.
Here is what you have to worry about:
Get your RBC Bluesfest tickets early!
Look up some Festival Fashion favourites and find your look! I discovered an awesome booth in the Byward market in front of the Keg with an excellent selection (see pic above)! Remember #supportlocal when you can.
Join me on June 20th, for this year’s hottest summer event, BASH NOIR, in support of the Ottawa Snowsuit Fund. Get your tickets before they sell out!
The Snowsuit fund is an Ottawa-based charity that raises funds for the purchase and distribution of new snowsuits to needy children in our community. For more information, visit www.snowsuitfund.com.
BASH NOIR IS AN ENTICING AFFAIR TAKING PLACE AT THE STUNNING NEW HORTICULTURE BUILDING IN OTTAWA’S LANDSDOWNE PARK. UPON OPENING HOURS, GUESTS CAN EXPECT TO INDULGE ON PASSED APPS AND OPULENT COCKTAILS WHILE CHATTERING AMONGST OTTAWA’S LIKE- MINDED SOCIALITES. THE EVENING WILL UNFOLD AND ESCALATE WITH NOIR INSPIRED ENTERTAINMENT, MUSIC, DECOR, DANCE FLOOR, BOTTLE SERVICE AND SOIREE. THIS ONE OF A KIND EVENT IS BASED ON THE NEO-NOIR AND FEMME FATALE FILM GENRE. AN UPSCALE DRESS CODE IS REQUIRED WITH A COLOR SCHEME OF BLACK, AND RED HIGHLY ENCOURAGED. NOTABLY CATERED BY ACE MERCADO RESTAURANT, VIP BAGS BY RINALDO’S HAIR SALON, BOTTLE SERVICE BY GREY GOOSE CHERRY NOIR, AND DIRECTION BY NATIONAL CAPITAL PRODUCTION; THIS IS AN EVENT NOT TO BE MISSED IN THE NATION’S CAPITAL. THIS HAS BEEN A SELL-OUT EVENT EVERY YEAR. BE SURE TO PURCHASE YOUR TICKETS EARLY.
But the true question remains… what shall I wear to the affair? I guess you will have to tune in and see! Or just buy your ticket already!
Do you have a go-to favourite outfit that you know will work? For me this year it’s totally the denim blouse (also called chambray) with a full skirt. Something casual on top paired with something feminine on the bottom. I totally love that look. You will see me repeat-offending this one for sure. Guilty.
I am standing outside of the Mayfair Theater in Old Ottawa South on Bank Street. It also started snowing that day! I was frozen, but kept my composure… at least I tried to! My proudest moment was getting so many looks and a few honks. It’s kind of corny, but it made me feel important and sexy! haha
