Summer Capsule Wardrobe

Our favorite season is almost here and we can’t wait to make the most out of it! Summer in Vancouver is so amazing that we love to stay here and relish all the city has to offer, sort of like a staycation! We love to go to the beach ( even on weekdays), bike around the Seawall or simply enjoy patio season during one of the long sunny days. We can’t help to start planning how to spend these few months of warmth and, together with it,  our Summer Capsule wardrobe!

Since we don’t get a lot of warm weather here, we find it smart to buy staples that will still look nice in the following year. Chances are your summer dress will still be in mint conditions next summer! 😂 As much as I’d love to go crazy on the new trends, I find that a classic Summer Capsule is always the best way to go!

Summer-Capsule-Wardrobe

 

1. Stripe Dress:  Is there any patter more fresh and classic than blue and white stripes? Combine that with a summer dress and  you’ll get the most flattering look.

2. Straw Boater Hat: from the beach to the city, the boater hat looks super cute with any summer outfit you have in mind!

3. Off-Shoulder top: I feel like we keep repeating this item in our capsules, but what can we do? They are here to stay!

 

4. Slide Sandals: Following the success of slide loafers, slide sandals will be my go-to shoe this summer! Easy, comfy and chic.

5. Sunglasses: A summer must have, currently I’m loving  the round ones and its bohemian vibe!

6. Tote Bag: Summer calls for a bag that can fit everything in it: bikini, towel, water bottle, sunglasses and even a little jacket. Straw bags are also a great option in and out the beach!

 

8. Graphic Tee: Summer is the season to get more relaxed and fun. We love to add color and personality to the outfit with a cute tee.

9. Bikini: In my opinion, the best bikini is whichever makes you feel good wearing it! But if you want to know our favorites check this post.

10. Denim skirt : Where classic meets trend! Demin skirts are hotter than ever and we are loving the high waist  + destroyed wash.

 

What about you, what are the pieces you won’t stop wearing this summer? Let us know in the comments below!

It’s The Little Things in Life

We visited the Abbotsford Tulip Festival a couple of weeks ago and it was love at first sight! Being surrounded by rows and rows of colorful tulips was so breathtaking and made me feel like I was a kid again. I almost wanted to jump around and run through the rows of thousands of tulips. I loved it!

Seeing the faces of everyone visiting the tulips that day reminded me just how little we actually need to be happy and how it’s always the little things (or tulips) in life that bring us the greatest joy. I recommend everyone to find these little experiences and seize them. 🌷✨

How to Always Buy the Best Items on Sale

When it comes to shopping sales, excitement can sometimes play tricks on you and you might get home with more than you planned for! I have to admit, I used to be so tempted to buy things based on the fact that they had a killer price, or that they were the piece of the season. But impulse purchases were the majority of the clothes I ended up returning or giving away, or simply not wearing. In time, I learned to refine the way I shop sales and it’s actually so easy to figure out and apply to your wardrobe too.

Why I Mostly Wear Casual Outfits Now

wear-casual-outfits-adoreness-5

It’s interesting to discover that most of my outfits have shifted to be relaxed, minimalist and quite casual. When I moved to Vancouver a few years ago, I was surprised of how casual this city was, and I think in time some of this casualness has rubbed onto me as well, and now I mostly wear casual outfits but adapted to my own style.

Although I still dress up most of my looks with various accessories and different trendier pieces, the base of my clothes, about 80%, is made up of classic pieces. It’s not quite a capsule wardrobe, but I have to probably say that I own way less clothes than I used to. I am maybe growing up, or embracing more minimalistic principles, but I am a true believer in the entire “buy less and choose well” revolution, and I still think that denim and a white T-shirt and leather jacket probably make the best outfits in the world.

Some of you have asked me how I let go of so many of my clothes, and I will write a full post explaining how I did it, but I think it all starts with assessing what your lifestyle is, and for what occasions you have to dress up. My work is a casual environment, hence I can wear casual outfits 90% of the time. The rest 10% consists in going out pieces, heels, dresses, or gym clothes.

It’s up to you to identify what this balance looks to you, and then look on making durable, high-quality purchases to fit your own 90%. This makes sense as you will wear them many times, and the cost/wear will be smaller each day. I will dig deeper into this in a future post, but it’s a good reminder to stay true to your style. 😉

Happy Weekend!

Trench Coat – My Favorite Spring Staple

Spring-Statement-Trench-Coat

I actually meant to share these pictures in my latest post ( have you seen it yet?), but I thought my favorite Spring Staple deserved an attention of its own. I love the Trench Coat for some many reasons, for starters whenever I get to wear it in Spring, it is a sign that the flowers are blooming outside, the weather is warmer and I can finally put the heavy coats in the wardrobe. It is also such a classic piece that elevates the outfit and looks geeat with almost everything you wear. For sure the Trench Coat is an  item that will never go out of fashion, so investing in a good one is really worth it.

As the Camel Coat was my Winter uniform for the season, the Trench Coat is definitely my Spring uniform. I’ve had this one from Zara for almost 4 years and as the seasons change I like to update my looks with other current trendy items. I find this to be a great way to maintain a “lean” capsule wardrobe and still be on top of fashion trends.

Lately I’ve been loving to pair my Trench Coat with frayed-hem jeans and mules. Whenever I find an outfit that I like I keep repeating it over and over again, are you also like this? Here is what I’ve been wearing during these lovely Spring days!
