It’s not just another weekend getaway when you’re meeting up with a couple of fabulous bloggers. Although they’re as kind as can be, and the farthest one can be from style snobbery, I still want to step up my game for my rendez-vous with Suzanne of Suzanne Carillo and Ally of Shybiker. My baggy man-shorts, flip-flops, and graphic tees will not be adequate for all the fun and fashion.
The setting is the beautiful city of Toronto – fourth largest city in North America, and still so friendly and welcoming. Those Canadians – they can’t help how nice they are! Even the taxi drivers! (Remember, NYC is my usual destination). The US dollar is strong right now too, so some serious shopping may have to go down.
And the weather is expected to be darn-near perfect, with highs in the low 70’s. That opens the door for all kinds of smart outfits. Mixable pieces and layers are in order. Here is my preliminary pass at a weekend wardrobe:
Dresses: My new favorite style is wearing a top over a dress, thereby extending the dress’s versatility. I’ll wear one dress on the plane, and pack one more, both easy fitting and layer-able.
Versatile tops: A solid tee, and of course some excellent lounge wear. And for going out and about, some print blouses that are colorful and washable in any sink. These will go nicely over the dresses, as well as with my jeans.
White jeans. A refreshing change from my blue denims, these look great with a tee and blazer, or floral blouse, or something amazing that I haven’t even bought yet. Remember, Suzanne is a Queen of Shopping (check her store here).
And accessories – they’re the easiest items to pack, and make repeat outfits look cool and different. A scarf, a bracelet and a couple of necklaces will do, as well as the most comfortable walking shoes I own.
Stay fabulous, and stay you,
Here’s some cool pieces that could take the trip north:
