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.

Shake your Bootie

Dress: Banana Republic, Tights: Loft, Booties: Steve Madden, Necklace: Pyrrha Clutch: Gap (circa 2001) Ring: Paola Hernandez

I have turned a corner on booties (not the one behind you) the short boot that has become the “it” shoe. Ankle booties have come and gone and for years I hated them, but lo and behold on their latest return trip I’ve changed my anti-ankle boot ways and become a fan (and learned a very good lesson about saying “I’ll never wear those!”).

I should have taken a better picture of my ring but this is one of my all-time favourite pieces of jewellery. I bought it Mexico City, one of my favourite stops on our driving trip to Argentina, from a wonderful friend of ours who was working for the designer at the time. I used to wear different rings all the time but these days I usually only wear my wedding bands plus my engagement ring, which sits on my right hand, long story but basically it means I don’t switch rings very often but when I do it is always to wear this one.

Side note: Check out that hair. Real beachy waves. I have been testing a new curling iron that comes with a protective glove to protect your hand! The risk of burning might be worth curls like this. (I’ll be covering the curling iron for Vitamin Daily so stay tuned!)
