Dress, Free People

Part II of the road trip! After Big Sur (and an outfit change), we headed back to Carmel for a walk down the main street in the afternoon. This dress was perfect for the occasion – it’s breezy enough for the beach but the pattern makes it interesting enough for the quirky town! Whenever I wear this dress I like to let it speak for itself, that’s why I usually keep the outfit simple by pairing it with some simple black booties and as shown here, a plain scarf or jacket if needed.

This past weekend I took a little adventure down to Big Sur and Carmel for the day – the best decision I’ve made in weeks. Not only did I spot Gerard Butler in a restaurant, but I spotted two whales playing near the beach and got to enjoy some amazing weather! (Last time I ventured down to Big Sur, it was cloudy the entire weekend). Needless to say, the day was amazing, and it reminded me that I need to get out and go on more adventures like this one.

As for what I’m wearing, I’m of course decked out in Free People – I got this shirt for my mom for Mother’s Day and according to her, she “hasn’t gotten a real chance to wear it!” It’s true, I’ve stolen it enough to make me debate buying myself one. Here’s another take on the Free People look for my FP series – this one’s a little more tomboyish, with subdued tones and a laid back vibe.

What are you guys getting up to this summer? Any adventure ideas for me?

Having only started my job as a Free People stylist last week, I am already surprisingly familiar with the brand and what it stands for. Contrary to popular misconception, Free People in fact caters to a variety of different styles – with such a broad range and with not one but four style muses off of which they base their designs, one would be hard-pressed not to find a single thing they were drawn to in a store. Firmly believing in this newfound versatility of the brand, I thought I might show you guys a couple of different ways to style Free People pieces. The first look, as shown here, is the most typical portrayal of Free People. It’s bohemian, airy, colorful, and oozes the term “free spirit.”

The beauty of Free People is encompassed in the name – they give customers the freedom to dress however they want, and encourage original interpretation of their pieces. Look out for my next post featuring a different take on some FP pieces!

I made it through the Ice Age! The heat finally broke through a couple of days ago and I can’t even remember the last time so many people were out and about in Montreal. I managed to shoot these pictures on my phone in the midst of spring errands (errands meaning any excuse to get outside). And of course on the first day of Spring I had to go all out, so I broke out the new love of my life – my grey faux suede fedora.

Happy Spring! (Or should I be saying summer? I go home for summer vacation in less than a week!)
