OOTD 06.21.2013 - Vera Moda & H&M

It's been rainy here in Ottawa for the past few days, and it's supposed to rain every day for the next week or so! Not fun! But last week the weather was really nice, and I spent a lot of time out and about. Last Friday my boyfriend and I went out to the Dragon Boat Festival at Mooney's Bay here in Ottawa. We've made a tradition of going every year, as it's fun to watch the races, and there's always a free concert. I thought I'd show you what I ended up wearing! It was crazy hot out, so I decided on shorts and a t shirt, can't go wrong there!

I wore this neon coral top from Vera Moda that I bought recently from The Bay. Neons are really popular right now and I'm loving this trend. This shirt has butterfly sleeves, which I really love. I did wear a basic coral coloured tank from Forever 21 underneath, as this top is a bit sheer. I paired this shirt with a pair of cobalt blue shorts from H&M. I got these shorts for $12.95 during my trip to NYC, and I absolutely love them. They're super comfortable, and you can roll them up or down, depending on your personal style. I love the orange matched with the cobalt blue, I think this colour combo is really fun, and perfect for Summer.  Since I was headed to the beach, I decided to skip on accessories.

Here's a shot of the stage and the old school Ferris wheel lit up at night. The Dave Matthews Band played, and they were amazing! We had a great time, as we always do at the Dragon Boat Festival. What were you up to this weekend? Have you made it out to any Summer festivals yet, or do you have plans to attend any in the next few months? :)
