Happy 150th birthday to the world's most beautiful country!

My beautiful Canada celebrates its birthday today, July 1st, 150 years after Confederation in 1867. Everyone, of course, is celebrating – there are many different kinds of celebration here, of course, because of the diversity of cultures. On the Sunshine Coast today we had a parade, with music, celebration of our servicemen and women, and overall rejoice of our incredible nation. And, of course, anyone attending (bar anyone in uniform, such as the Cadets and military) wore the national colors of red and white. Of course, I had to as well! So here's my simple but patriotically chic look I wore to celebrate Canada Day.

This is my new uniform: a well-fitting button-down tucked into high-waisted trousers or shorts. It's simple, chic, low maintenance, and a very good base for accessorizing. The fun thing about a wide, casual collar like the one on this blouse is that it's easy to add a loose tie or thin scarf for a kind of retro, 70s undone-but-polished look. Fabulous sunglasses and sophisticated pointed-toe pumps always are the perfect way to finish off a look.

Happy Canada Day, everyone! And for my American readers, a happy Independence Day in advance (or both, to any fellow dual citizens). And – eek! – it's now July, meaning that the year is going to completely fly by from this point onward. However, I'm hoping to cram lots of fantastic outfits and content into whatever time I can grasp hold of, so look out for some amazing stuff coming soon.

Bisous,
