Little Summer Black Dress. That's the best description I could give to this classic number with a twisted peek-a-boo back. Though black is a little out of place for summer, the silk jersey material is definitely summer-approved ;)

Until The Sun Comes Up

Hey everyone! I hope you all had an awesome weekend. I can't wait for this week to be over (Ha! It's barely just begun!) because I'm going out of town with Chris for the Canada Day long weekend. It's been awhile since I went on a vacation, so even though this trip is going to be a short one, I'm suuuuuper looking forward to it :) :)

You Smile In My Dream

When I hear the term "fast fashion", my mind immediately thinks of H&M, Forever 21, and you know... other "affordable" clothing stores. What I've found interesting, though, that some of my purchases from those stores have lasted several seasons and I consider them as my closet "investments". The denim jacket, the striped top, and the skinny red belt have gone through all four seasons with me. I have a feeling that the new-ish purse and mocha skirt would live the same fate as the first three. Anyway, have a great weekend, everyone! :)

ps. Looking at the creases on the skirt, maybe I should start investing on a good garment steamer :p

Whenever Chris and I go out during the weekend, I always bring my camera with me so that I can ask him to take some outfit photos for the blog. Lately, he's been "dressing up" for the weekend, so that after he finishes taking photos of my outfit, he could ask me to do the same for him.

Somebody is trying to steal my thunder ;)

Blue's Clues

Sesame Street was (and still is) my ultimate favorite children television series, but Blue's Clues was definitely one of my top 3. I thought this outfit would be a great tribute to one of my childhood TV friends :) Every time I wear this gingham shirt, I feel like I'm wearing a picnic tablecloth. It's a good thing that this shirt is in blue, not red ;)

I feel like this week has gone by so slowly, but thank goodness it's Friday. Sorry I don't have much to say in this post, but I wish everyone a great weekend ahead! :)

In Her Shoes

Introducing my new pair of sandals from Joe Fresh. Aren't they pretty awesome? Or pretty AND awesome? Ha! ;) Did I mention that they're on sale for $20? And did I also mention they're made out of genuine leather? I'm no shopaholic (well, maybe just a little...) but I'm definitely a deal-a-holic ;)

I think it's funny how this top is called "Wild Kingdom", yet there's only 1 type of animal printed all over the top. However, that doesn't change the fact that I very much adore this breezy summer top :) Speaking of animals, I just found out that Madagascar 3 opens today! *squeal* Can't wait to see Skipper, Kowalski, Rico, and Private in action because they're the best part of the movie! Now I just have to fight for them with Chris because that guy wants to see Prometheus, which also opens today. Wish me luck! ;)

Why Do Birds Suddenly Appear?

Your eyes aren't fooling you. THE TIGHTS ARE BACK! It was cold, rainy, and windy throughout the weekend. But you know what? I wasn't complaining about the temperature drop at all. It felt great to be reunited with my black tights again, even if it's only for a few days :)

When Words Are Not Enough

Because the Spring temperatures in Toronto have been very temperamental lately (one day it was 38 °C, the next day it dropped to 17 °C), I found that wearing maxi skirts to work helps solve my office attire problem. The length is very office appropriate and the sheer fabric helps the air flow in and out. So when it's cool outside, I would feel comfortable, and when it's hot outside, I wouldn't pass out from a heat stroke ;)

Have a great weekend, everyone!
