Denim days: flare jeans, graphic tank top, and sleeveless linen coat

Even though I’ve been absolutely basking in Vancouver’s recent heatwave, I will admit to “jonesing” for my jeans just a little…so now that our temperatures have dropped back down to a more moderate level, of course my flared denims were the first thing I reached for!!

And I’m back to some layering, too!!  While dressing for very hot weather is all about minimalism – after all, the fewer items you have on, the cooler you feel! – an extra piece added to an ensemble (like this sleeveless linen waistcoat I found at Zara) almost magically manages to make any outfit suddenly more interesting!!

The unexpected pairing of my “Canada” tank top with a double length of pearls and rhinestones definitely creates some interest, too; and this zebra-stripe-embellished Fossil bag adds a fun pop of animal print to finish things off!!

Summer will always be my favourite season, but I’m happy to have an occasional cooler day or two mixed in with all that warmth…if only to keep my sartorial senses sharp!!  😉

    Hi! I am a newcomer to your blog, but I have to say I really love it! I too am a fan of the boho/ rocker look and you do it so well! Truly an inspiration! Your shoes, boots and purses are fantastic too!

    Love this look! What an interesting combination! One thing I love about your blog, Monika, is that you put things together so well, things that I wouldn't think to put together. Another home run!
    OXOX

      My husband would totally agree with you regarding heatwaves, dearest Kelsey and Kenecha; but I think they're part of what makes summer…summer!! 😉
