Maxi dresses and maxi skirts are having an encore this season and I was excited to pull mine out a little early for our trip to the U.S. During colder months I seem to have a pants-only policy, but warmer weather brings out the lady in me. The best thing about maxi skirts and dresses is that you can find some reasonably priced options and still look put together and on trend. Unless you’ve just stuck your hand in some bird poop as I did during this photo below.
Although whats a little summer maxi fun without a little bird poo interaction!?

When vacation is over, the car is unloaded, souvenirs are stored away and memories have been described in detail to every family member, the outfits we wore on vacation still remain. If you ever wonder what to wear for a cool casual stroll in a southern town like Savannah, throw on a graphic sweater. They’re cozy and look casual/cool when worn with Converse sneakers and enough denim to make the Canadian tuxedo look tame.
Denim Jacket: old – love this update // Sweater: purchased along the i-95 at a discount store whose name I do not recall // Purse: my friendly neighbourhood Roman shop and also worn here and here // jeans: William Rast - already worn here // Shoes: Converse
Have you noticed any difference in the photos!? I bought a new camera! It’s a Canon T3i and I am in love! Hope you enjoy the photos!
Dearest Readers, as you might recall, I’m training for my first marathon. Like all things that seem far away at first, the speed at which this event has crept up on me is faster than my goal pace. So far I have been enjoying this journey, but as I get closer to race day, my nerves are starting to get the best of me. Running has always been a joy and a pleasure so the fact that it’s making me nervous is a little distressing. So I headed to my “wise words” pin board on Pinterestand found some motivation via Muhammad Ali. Maybe I’m not a champion, and maybe the term “suffering” is a bit dramatic, but this really helped me put my runners on when I had to head to a sprint practice instead of enjoying drinks on a patio.
I hope it provides you with the same motivation to get out there and get your work out on.
It’s trenchcoat season! A classic trench pairs so well with simple black flats a la Audrey Hepburn, or pointy pump a la Angelina Jolie. But I’m bringing it to casual town with my all-time favoriteIlse Jacobsen boots that I bought at WOLF and Zed.
I tend to refer to these boots as the anti-Hunter boot. Because if you’re going to be walking through the rain, do you really want to look the same as everyone else?
After a two-week hiatus, Workwear Wednesday is back! Apologies dear readers, as I thought it was only appropriate to halt all “work” related content until my return from vacation. Sometimes coming back from a break instills a renewed sense of work ethic, even if it only lasts for the 30 seconds it took to decide whether the made-up-business/fashion word “accessorization” was appropriate for this post.
All grammar and english language conundrums aside, here are some of my favorite new accessories that are completely appropriate to wear at the office:
A few things to remember when choosing jewelry for work:
- pearls are not only to be worn around the neck
- statement pieces are great as long as you keep the rest of the outfit clean so that the accessories pop
- If you really want to pile it on, make sure it’s all delicate
