With Canadian Thanksgiving past and Halloween—creepily shuffling its feet towards October in that dimly lit alley behind WalMart—around the corner, it’s safe to say Fall is upon us. Already, nary not a pumpkin-laced treat or scalding hot beverage, knitted-cabled sweater coziness, or flat-heeled ankle boot already in your weekend casual game’s rotation. Fall and all that comes along with it is great, I kid you not, but let’s face it folks, summer is just so much gosh-darn better: there’s more sunlight in the day to chase your dreams (with drinks on a patio); you’re free to bear your tri’s and bi’s in all their sleeveless glory; BBQ’d anything every night of the week; and the warmth, my god the warmth, of the sun on your sunglasses-framed face.
With that, allow me to take the time to look back on the sunshine of a couple of months earlier with these garden-party-worthy florals, a shift dress highly appropriate for the office and epic cap sleeves. #summerthrowback
It’s high time I embraced the current season—have you?
Who says an asymmetrical hemline can’t work in an office. Love the shattered-glass-like patter and it’s versatility — swapped the blazer for a jean jacket and boots over the weekend. This dress will definitely be in high rotation throughout the year.
I picked up this purse at a blogger garage sale last weekend hosted by Justyna (chameleonic), Julie (Pop Champagne) and Katarina (Love K Blog). Love the vibrant Kelly green and the smaller size. Side note: I’d like to downsize my purses…they are much too large…then I feel the need to fill them…then I can never find anything, especially when I need to… Anyway, it was $10. I need to shop vintage more often.

Especially the cut of the jacket. Especially the cuff on the sleeve. Especially the crease in the pant. Especially the colour. Red tuxedo from Rachel Zoe’s Fall 2011 RTW. This would have been fabulous to wear yesterday. This post also would have been fabulous had it been posted yesterday, on Valentine’s Day.
Expect my opinions on and absolute favourites from NYFW very, very soon. I promise.
