Summer has parked itself right outside my door, constantly beckoning me to come outside and play.And although I’m spending my fair share of hours indoors in front of my computer, this time of year finds me out and about in search of places to shoot our collections, looking for shaded alleys, fields of wildflowers and interesting backdrops.
What does that mean for my wardrobe? Well anyone who knows me knows what I wear has to be easy and look effortless and that’s especially true right now. My uniform of late has become the new season Freedom Top or the California Dreaming Top layered over the Stealing Happiness Merino Top from our Winter collection just to name a few!)
As far as footwear my Deuce ankle boots are my go-tos. Don’t get me wrong, wearing big bad heels is one of my favourite activities, but running around all day, this isn’t always the most practical. Besides I’m still into wearing a dress (think the Anytime Tee Dress and Long Cool Woman Shirt Dress layered with the Striped Singlet Dress) with sneakers: the ultimate what-this-old-thing look.
But I’m always looking for something new. Maybe not new as in just invented, but new to my style. Perhaps a bold new print or new colour?
Which brings me to our Summer collection, “Shadows on the Sun”, a collection ready for the heights of Summer! Naturally I wanted to bring some Anyone’s Daughter attitude to this collection, stripes, brights, pastels, prints, cottons and silks.... and who better to help us paint that picture than Anyone’s Daughter’s resident classic beauty, Hazel. The supreme trouper, Hazel came with her usual up-for-anything attitude, which made shooting at a football park so much easier than it could have been.
One final thought: though many of us have had to make some lifestyle adjustments in recent times, it doesn’t have to keep us from being ourselves. So if you love fashion, keep loving it! It’s a cool, interesting time to be watching, wearing and experimenting. Get dressed! Your Summer awaits!
