I live in a small, but mighty city in Atlantic Canada. Its residents sometimes refer to it as Saint Awesome or YSJ, but on a map, it is called Saint John. It is located in the picturesque Province of New Brunswick and you will find it nestled by the Atlantic Ocean.

I love Saint John for numerous reasons. One of those reasons is our amazing entrepreneurs and small businesses. We have those who were born and raised in Saint John and those who are CHOOSING our city to set up shop and follow their passion. As a Personal Stylist, I love to support my local boutique shops when I take my clients shopping and especially when I shop for myself. 


 Outfit #1: Tee:In Pursuit, Sneakers: Urban Shoe Myth, Pants: Paula’s Pics

The In Pursuit Mobile Truck of my favourite local shops and it happens to be an industry disruptor. She can drive her shop ANYWHERE!! Dominique Leger started her mobile PINK truck 5 seasons ago and not only has she rocked her business, but she is now going to open a second truck! She started a Kickstarter campaign in February of 2018 to fund her Mobile truck 2.0 and the community support was overwhelmingly supportive. In fact, she hit her goal in less then a month! The 2nd truck will allow her to have more cards, more gifts, and more of her retail inventory (including plus size clothing).


Outfit #2: Tee: In Pursuit, Sneakers: Urban Shoe Myth, Skirt: Ella the Shop

One place that you can find the Mobile Truck is at the Queen’s Square Market. I stopped by the market a few Sundays ago to eat some amazing locally made food for lunch, buy produce from local famers and check out some hand made goods. The first place I stopped at was, of course, the In Pursuit Truck! I eagerly got my hands on the coveted unisex YSJ tee and I chose the classic black and white option. If you want to check out The Queen’s Square Market in uptown Saint John, then it runs every Sunday during late Spring and Summer from 9 AM – 2 PM.

My YSJ tee was hanging happily in my closet, but it was screaming at me with outfit inspiration ideas. So, I grabbed a friend and my phone and we had a photoshoot uptown. I styled the tee 3 ways, but there are so many more ideas floating in my head. I hope you enjoy the 3 ways that I have styled it and are inspired to purchase a YSJ tee today! If you struggle in styling the clothes hanging in your closet, then contact me to find out how I can help! Check out my service here => www.simplystylish.ca
