If you’re Canadian (and even if you’re not), I’m sure you’re aware that Canada’s 150th birthday is just around the corner. That’s a huge milestone!
Between Canada’s upcoming birthday (and the current state of the world), I’ve been feeling a lot more patriotic lately. It seems like a lot of people have been feeling the same. We may no longer have Target or Chobani yogurt in Canada (*single tear*), but that doesn’t make me any less proud to be Canadian.
While I still haven’t solidified my plans for Canada Day, I know that whatever I end up doing, I’ll be wearing a Canadian-themed outfit. In all honesty, I’d feel like a total loser if I didn’t embrace it. Thankfully, Canada Day fashion and accessories are plentiful this year!
As you can probably tell from the types of outfits that I typically share here on the blog, red isn’t really my colour. (Actually, colour in general isn’t really my thing.) I feel my best in neutrals like this, but that’s not to say that that I don’t wear colours from time to time. For instance, I love this red striped dress from last summer, as well as this burnt orange sweater.
Considering how infrequently I wear red, I wanted to buy something new, but didn’t want to break the bank. Well, friends – that’s why I love Amazon.ca so much! As you can imagine, Amazon.ca has tons of Canada Day merchandise – including fashion pieces. Yes, that’s right – they have a devoted Canada 150 section! And of course, there’s still plenty of time left to shop.
I wanted to come up with an outfit that was patriotic, but still in line with my style. Aka – mostly neutral, with just a “pop” of colour. After browsing through some of the available options, I decided that I might be easier (and cheaper) to DIY a Canada Day outfit. I ordered an $8 Hanes T-shirt and an iron-on Canadian flag patch to put on the left chest. I absolutely love how it turned out, and have already worn it a couple of times. In order to amp up the “Canadian” aspect of the outfit, I also ordered a red bandana.
With this outfit, I think I’m ready to ring in Canada’s 150 birthday!
To Re-Cap, Here’s What You Need:
If you don’t want to DIY your Canada Day outfit, I really like this red and white dress, these maple leaf socks and this baseball cap – all from Amazon.ca. PS – They’re all Prime eligible items, so shipping is super fast.
