I always find this time of year to be a challenging fashion period in the city of Calgary. All of the stores are clearing out the fall/winter goods and you start to see all the pretty florals, pastels and neons that are suggesting summer is right around the corner. In Calgary however, it is not. There are still a solid three months of winter left in this city. Snow could fall any day, and the slush and muck seem to accumulate throughout the city exponentially. Because of this winter slog, I try to incorporate touches of spring through layering. While my cream, floral and pastel blouses may not read well on their own, pairing them with a more wintery sweater creates a fabulous alternative. Hurry up spring, hurry up.
