Ever Rose Canadian Style Icon: Amy Nelson
We've highlighted a few famous femmes that we aspire to dress like - check out our posts on Kate Middleton and Zooey Deschanel - but we also want to showcase real fashionistas that reside right here in Canada. Our stylish country has plenty of fashionable bloggers who regularly spread the word on what they're wearing, what they're wishing for, and cool brands you should hear about.
Our inaugural Canadian style icon is Amy Nelson, the Calgary-based blogger behind Amy Flying a Kite. We zeroed in on Amy's blog primarily because of her dreamy, bohemian style, coupled with her artsy approach to blogging. Favouring floaty, diaphanous dresses, feminine floral prints, and an impressive collection of hats, we love Amy's ability to pair things in a way that feels fresh, unexpected, and totally eye-catching.
We recently teamed up with Amy to have her showcase one of our very own styles - The Hills Are Alive dress. We thought it was the perfect pick for this banjo-playing, poetry-writing lady, given many of her posts are about her connections with nature, which is in magnificent abundance where she lives.

Of course, this isn't the only item we'd have picked out for Amy! Given her aesthetic, we've highlighted a few other styles we think would fit this charming gal's style. First up, we picked out the Moving to the Country Dress. Why? Because this girl has a bit of country in her - from playing the banjo to living in a semi-rural setting. This flared gingham dress has a bit of country to it too, and would look great whether paired with cowboy boots or feminine flats.
We also adore Amy's approach to layering, giving her outfits a sweet, easygoing feeling. If we were going to pick another cardigan to add to Amy's closet, we'd suggest the Sweeter Than Vanilla cardigan, which features a flower mesh back and shoulder panels, adding to her feminine, flowery vibe.
Two mainstays in Amy's closet? Fun prints and a fit and flare style - just like many of the dresses we carry at Ever Rose! We love The Looking Glass dress for Amy because of its classic shape and feminine full skirt. Can't you just see it with those cute boots in the photo above?
We're psyched to be working with Canadian fashionistas like Amy and look forward to showcasing more Canadian Style Icons in the future!
