I was lucky enough to attend the first four days of the Pan Am Games, and even luckier to attend the Opening Ceremony!! Last Friday, I shared what I wore to the Opening Ceremony, which you can find here, and today I thought I would share what I wore Day 1-4.
Don't know what the Pan Am Games are? You can find out more here...they are basically the pre-Olympics aka kind of a big deal.
So, what did I wear?

I attended the Canoe and Kayak events, which took place during the first four days of the Pan Am Games. Taking place in the morning and outdoors, since they are flatwater sports, I wanted to look classic, put together, yet relaxed. Being outdoors, I wanted some protection from the sun, but I also wanted to be comfortable and keep cool in the heat- hello skirts and light, breezy tops!
There wasn't a ton of walking to be done, as the venue was fairly small. I basically walked from the parking lot to the venue, and then between the grandstand and the VIP area (more about that next week). In the summer, I live in flip flops, and didn't see any reason to stray from my footwear of choice. They were so comfortable, went with my outfits and helped keep a laid back feel to my outfits.
The dress was super comfy, although a bit dressy for the venue and events. I did get quite a few compliments on it, as well as the blue shirt.I kept my accessories to a minimum and didn't use a purse. If it didn't fit in my pockets, I didn't bring it. I wanted to make going through security as hassle free as possible and didn't want to worry about keeping track of a purse at the events.
I wore a lot of blue, but tried to incorporate some red into my outfits to show my Team Canada support. As mentioned in last weeks Fashion Friday post, I don't actually own the necklace pictured but it is the perfect accessory for the Games, these outfits and to show support for Canada.
These outfits would not have been possible without the help of Robyn from LePrix Clothing. I met Robyn through work about a year ago. She is so nice, a ton of fun and has great style. I had never worked with a stylist before and thought it would be fun to work with Robyn for the Pan Am Games. I can't wait to work with her again!! Not only does Robyn do personal styling, but she also has a great collection of clothes and accessories, that you can shop online for. You can find Robyn and LePrix on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and YouTube.
Next week, I'll be sharing details about the Chairman's Reception, Opening Ceremony and Day 1-4 of flatwater events, including the athletes I got to meet.
Hope everyone has a FANTASTIC weekend!!
