Vancouver is currently going through a heat wave and we are set to break all kinds of records this summer - and I am loving it. Growing up in Ottawa I had my share of sunny summers. Then moving to Bermuda in my twenties for three years turned me into a sun worshiper. When my husband accepted a job in Vancouver last November I was less than thrilled to be moving to the “rainy city”. So far, the winter was above average in temperature with very few rainy days and the summer forecasts looks like we are expected to break records.
With that said, this is my perfect sunny weather attire. The heels can always be swapped out for a pair of flats for longer ventures into the city, but the heels gave me the perfect bit of height and elegance for a sunny patio lunch.
Banana Republic is definitely a favorite shop of mine due to its well-tailored petite section. Being all of five-feet tall I find the tailoring of the items in the petite section to fit us shorter women that much better.
I chose a lightweight drapey blouse and a slim fit ankle pant to complete my outfit. These pants are super comfy with some stretch and on sale for $32.99 - such a steal! I wore our XOXO Necklace to add a little sparkle to this outfit and chose to pair it with our XOXO Bracelet and our Sophia Bracelet.
