True to You

R and I headed to downtown Halifax several hours before the Pride Parade started. We had a task at hand (wedding band shopping) and weren't planning on staying around for the parade, but certainly got a taste of the vibe in the city. So many people in such fun colours! Then there was me in my neutral outfit. Ho hum. However, I was happy with what I was wearing, and isn't the whole idea of pride being true to who you are?

In case you're wondering what's in the tumbler, it was Magic Dragon from DavidsTea. Yummy!

The Chambray Skirt

It's no secret I love me some chambray. Is there a more versatile fabric? It goes with everything. Now I get to wear it in skirt form as well, thanks to a mega-sale at Gap.


Details
Shirt: Old Navy
Skirt: Gap
Shoes: American Eagle Outfitters
Sunnies: Coach
Necklace: Tiffany & Co


I wore this for a community BBQ we had at R's clinic. The day was hot, but this outfit was pretty airy. I've had a big craving to buy lots of stripes lately, but I try to remember how many stripes already live in my closet. What are your summer clothing cravings?

Tangello

This skirt packs a punch and is a tad on the short side, so I'm careful in choosing what to pair with it. The longer sleeves on this top balance out the shortness of the skirt, and the muted grey and white lets the orange stand out.

Shirt: Old Navy
Skirt and sunnies: Gap
Belt: Joe Fresh
Sandals: Topshop
Bracelets: Stella & Dot

Like having my own wind machine....


I hope you all took advantage of National Ice Cream Day yesterday! I had a little scoop of Marshmallow Sundae Sprinkle (I think that was the name...). It was deeeee-lish!

Window Shopping

It's not very often that I go shopping and don't buy something. I think it might be the impending wedding costs that are making me think twice about my spending. Even though I was carrying no shopping bags, I had a great day in downtown Halifax with my friend (and photographer for the day - thanks Em).


Details
Sandals: American Eagle Outfitters
Tank: Smart Set
Cardigan: Gap
Shorts: Gap (on super sale now, but mine were even cheaper in store)
Bag and sunnies: Coach
Bracelet and necklace: Stella & Dot



I'm proud that I held out on buying these shorts. I waited til they went on sale (and not just a wee sale, a massive sale... $10). I can think of a trillion ways to wear them this summer. They might be my official Saturday uniform.

XOXO
