I'm Canadian so I obviously don't celebrate the 4th of July, but if I did, this is totally what I would wear! I got some cute red Calvin Klein capri jeans on a recent trip to Las Vegas. I also picked up an adorable navy blue star printed cardigan from H&M and a navy striped t-shirt. When I looked at them all together, it was clear that the Americana vibe in Vegas had rubbed off on my shopping choices.And I do have to admit, Americans, you have a flag that can truly inspire fashion (more so than any other country's flag I think)!

Sometime back I got this awesome purple sweater cape from Anthropologie at a ridiculous sale price (I think I paid about $30 when the original pricetag read $200). I am an avid sale shopper who just waits for someone to ask me where I got an item so that I can tell them what a great deal I got! I think it is important to understand that style isn't about how much you spend or what brand names you buy - it is about being yourself and feeling good in what you wear, no matter if it is currently "in style" or not. Find what works for you - and you find a great deal, Seize the Sale!
Sadly I packed away this sweater (and the rest of my fall/winter wardrobe) yesterday to make room for my spring/summer wardrobe - even though it isn't fully spring here yet, I needed the change. But I know that I will be so excited come the fall to pull this beauty back out again!

Last weekend while shopping with my mom, I picked up an adorable bird blouse very similar to this one from H&M (mine has short sleeves, and no buttons or ties). I also got this awesome cobalt blue blazer. I am so in love with bright colours right now, and have clearly established a jewel toned colour palette for spring. I love how the colours play so well with either black or brown, accent gold jewelery, and can be piled one colour on top of the other without looking outrageous. Bring on the colour! (And spring... pretty please)
