Summer Style

Dress: JCrew, Necklace: Pyrrha, Sandals: Aldo (on sale now!), Purse: Plum, Bracelets: from Rubaiyat and my travels

After my first rainy winter in Vancouver, I was beginning to wonder if good weather here was a myth created by cranky sun-deprived Vancouverites to mess with other Canadians. The past week has proved that theory wrong and the sun has been out in full force!

I am all over the maxi dress for summer. Grab a great pair of sandals and a few accessories (statement necklace or a stack of bangles) and voila, you are instantly pulled together—it makes getting ready in 10 minutes an actual possibility. My recommendation when looking for a maxi dress? Choose one with a defined waistband otherwise you run the risk of people asking when you are due.

The first time I wore this dress T asked if I was going to a ball. First of all, do people still go to balls? And if so, why haven’t I been taken to one? Clearly I have the proper attire I just need to drum up some glass slippers.

  1. Love the colour! Tips on wearing maxis in the office? I love your new little furry accessory :-)

    • Aw thanks, I love her too. She just popped in and the photo worked ;) As for maxis at work I think it depends a bit on the office you work in. If you’re in a more casual environment a jean jacket is a good way to keep it fun but also covers up some skin. I also am really loving a larger looser sweater or over-sized tee (knotted up – remember the 80s, they’re back) layered on top. For a more corporate office I think a fitted blazer or cardigan would do the trick!

  2. Love it too – I need to buy something just like that – when are you going to start offering personal shopping services?

    • Dream job lady! Next time I am in SD or your come up let’s get our shop on! Till then get on JCrew and buy this dress, I think it is on sale in stripes.

  3. Guess this means I better go shopping!

  4. 1. I hope that balls still exist.
    2. I like your dog accessory. :)
