From the shores of Iceland with Jordan Dyck to the mountains of British Columbia with Michelle Grace we are celebrating the adventurer. No matter where your journeys might lead, remember to pack a little piece of home. #RootsIsCanada
This is my spin on the ever so fantastic Canadian Tuxedo aka jean on jean. I wanted to showcase the classic Roots World Famous Crew and make it something that you could wear out for a night out on the town.
I paired it with a pencil jean skirt and tucked the sweater in at the band only (to avoid too much bulging) and topped it with a jean vest instead of your typical jean jacket, creating difference and a not so typical look. Then for the toppers to complete the look, I decided I needed some fun textures - so I added a chunky toque and a statement necklace! BAM! That simple!

Their story is one steeped in Canadiana: Heather Ogden, a BC native, joined the National Ballet of Canada the same year as Guillaume Côté, a Lac-Saint-Jean dancer. Their on stage chemistry quickly became apparent when they were partnered together to dance Romeo and Juliet.
