Spring is basically in high gear (is it just me or did we wake up to everything being green again!?) which means that summer is just around the corner, but eager me starts rotating my wardrobe only to find myself feeling chilly at times. Living in Calgary you basically have to be ready to experience all the seasons in one day…well that may be a bit of a stretch…but girl, you gotta be prepared! The easy solution? Lightweight layers. That way, despite how indecisive the weather is being, your look won’t have to suffer.
While I love me a good jacket, when the temperature starts to rise, I find them to be a tad tricky. Often you just want something easy to throw on when that sunshine sets (and the mosquitos come out), and a coat or jacket is sometimes bulky to carry around with you all day. Instead, opt for a long cardigan – it’s such an effortless addition to any outfit, and I find the longer length pairs more easily with dresses, skirts, or any summer look really.
I’ve rounded up some current favourites, below for you to shop!
FYI – the sweater I am wearing is from the Vancouver-based company Backdrop. Their online shop is coming soon, but in the mean time, you can follow them on Instagram to stay up to date on when things will be launching!
What’s your go-to-topper for summer weather?
Until next time,
