West Coast Vibes

Living on the West Coast of Canada, we're lucky to have so much nature at our fingertips. From downtown Vancouver, I can see the ocean, and at the same time, am minutes away from the forest and the mountains. We're lucky to be in the centre of such an urban metropolis, and yet be able to breathe the fresh air of the great outdoors! Today, I wanted to share with you an affordable outfit that truly embodies West Coast style: combining city vibes with laid-back nature-inspired touches. 

The necklace I'm wearing was handmade in Red Deer, Alberta by BEL Jewelry Boutique and is part of their West Coast Collection. I thought the style West Coast No. 2 would be the perfect piece to base this outfit on: a selection of bronzed and silvery leaves capturing the rugged nature and beautiful views of the coastline. I love the details on each leaf, and the long chain can be adjusted to wear short or long. Even better that it's Canadian-made!

As for the rest of the outfit, I wanted to stick to earthy tones, brown, green and beige. Vancouver and the West Coast in general is known for its laidback style, so comfy tees and loose drawstring pants made perfect sense (I'm going to ignore the fact that our city is also know for its insane love of yogawear). Add some metropolitan details like lazer-cut design heels, modern sunglasses, and a print bag to give the otherwise nature-inspired look a more 'concrete jungle' feel.

So, whether you actually live on the West Coast, or just want to dress like you do, I hope this give you some laid-back summer outfit inspiration!
