Spring in the desert! I made it to my happy place in Scottsdale, Arizona last week just in time to escape the snow in Canada. I wanted to share with you some cute spring and summer fashion at affordable prices so I snapped a few photos to inspire you! Shop these exact outfits from Maison Simons Calgary and the accessories to make them stand out!
Maison Simons Calgary
There is no landscape that I love more than the Sonoran Desert. The cacti and the brightly coloured bougainvillea are always so stunning to see when visiting Scottsdale, Arizona. It was snowing in Calgary when we left so experiencing spring in the desert was definitely a welcomed retreat. Before I left, I wanted to grab some spring clothes for my trip, so I headed to Maison Simons Calgary. I’ve been lucky enough to partner with them as an official influencer since last October and have gotten to know the store quite well. Let me tell you that I feel completely confident recommending them as a retailer. I LOVE their clothing and if you have not shopped there yet, you are missing out!
There are quite a few Simons locations in Canada. If you’re looking to shop at the downtown location in Calgary, head to the Core Shopping Centre. You might be overwhelmed with how massive the retail location is! There are four floors of shopping! The store is located at 8 Ave and 2 St SW or 304 8 Ave SW #100, Calgary, AB T2P 1C2. You can access it directly off the 7 Ave C-train line or try your best to find street parking.
A couple of shopping tips for Simons Calgary:
- I like to visit Simons Calgary on Sundays when street parking is free and it’s easier to secure a spot!
- Make sure to check out my fave affordable Simons brands: Twik, Icōne, and Contemporaine on the first floor
- Do not miss out on the home decor section on the second floor! It’s amazing!
Ground floor: Women’s Fashions and Accessories
Second Floor: Women’s Designer Fashions, Home Decorations
Third Floor: Men’s Fashions
Fourth Floor: Men’s Designer Fashions
Now let’s get to spring and summer outfit inspiration! Some things just never go out of style so I never hesitate when buying denim. I thought this romper would be perfect for the upcoming Calgary Stampede so I had to have it! Pair it with sandals, runners or cowboy boots! It’s really a blank slate for adding accessories and tailoring them to your personal style. I went for a black felt fedora and rock stud sandals.
Tropical Print Blouse and Denim Shorts
This tropical print blouse was a massive hit when I linked it in my Instagram Stories so I wanted to share it with you again here. I love the mix of bold colours! The shirt is airy and comfortable to wear in hot climates. It is quite boxy so I tucked it into these high-waist denim shorts. There is a matching belted short too so if you’re feeling daring, I’d try that combination too. This spring is all about going bold so don’t worry about it being too much.
