Laid Back

{ON top (so similar) | f21 shorts | qupid sandals (cute option) | coachella bag | fossil watch | dogeared necklace}

It's time to come clean.  I've had this post sitting, unpublished, for the better part of the weekend because I've simply been unable to think of anything to write.  I titled it Laid Back, and each time I look at it all I can think is "with my mind on my money and my money on my mind."  It's hard to write about my outfit when I've got Gin & Juice running through my head.  The only other concession my brain will allow me is "Canadian Tuxedo".  So it's either Snoop Dogg or Denim Dan.  I can't fight it anymore; they both win.

Yesterday I did what I feared I would someday do.  I accidentally deleted the outfit photos I had taken over the weekend.  Somewhere between transferring them from the camera to the computer they disappeared, and without checking, I deleted them from my camera.  As soon as my boyfriend noticed me staring at my laptop,  uncomprehending and bewildered, he quickly took over to try to retrieve them.  No luck.  They're gone.  As my dad likes to say, I always knew this day would come.  I just didn't think it would be today.  Ha.

Since I deleted all the photos of the outfit I wanted to show you, I thought instead I'd post some outfits that I never planned to show you (and actually should have been deleted).  They didn't make it to the blog for a number of reasons - the outfit didn't look as good as I thought or the photos turned out wonky.  Whatever was the reason, I was content to keep them safely tucked away on my hard drive.  But due to my airhead moment, you now get to take a peek into what you were never supposed to see.  Enjoy!

Short Story

{target dress (option) & shoes | ON hat (similar) | oasap ring, c/o | fossil watch | harmon sunnies (similar & on major sale!) | jessica simpson bag}

I haven't worn this dress in a while because the hemline seems to have magically shortened by at least 3 inches since I bought it.  But sometimes it's so hot that you just put the dress on, head out, and ask your friends to kindly let you know if at any point your undies are showing.

This Weather.

**Have you entered the bareMinerals giveaway yet?**

{target cardi (similar) | gap tank (similar) | f21 shorts | qupid heels (similar) | boyfriend's belt | fossil watch | target, f21 bracelets (option 1, 2, 3) | gifted necklace | vintage kerchief | harmon sunnies (similar)}

In the midst of the heat wave we've been having for the last few weeks, I got the chance to rock a cardigan after a blessed rain shower came and gave us a 3 hour break from the sauna-esque humidity (which has been about 85%, no joke).  Granted, this was a few weeks ago.  Amongst other things (*cough* working out *cough*) this heat is making me too lazy even to post my outfits on time.  Incidentally, it also makes my heat addled brain think it's a good idea to stumble over a bunch of stones in these heels to take some pictures.  I was so happy I didn't break an ankle that this was happening in my head for, like, the next 10 minutes.

She Bangs

{ON tee | f21 shorts | target sneakers | vintage kerchief | gifted necklace (similar), earrings (similar), bracelets}

This right here is an example of my "Oh my god it's so hot outside I can't stand to wear clothing but I really want to get fast food so I need to leave the house and I'll probably be arrested if I wear nothing, so fine I'll just put something on" kind of outfit.  At first I found myself reaching for a maxi dress for this muggy, 90 degree weather, but quickly remembered that I've already made that mistake once before.  I'm no genius, but I know better than to do the same thing twice and expect a different result.  The only exception: me circa 1989. The repeat offender?  Huge, teased bangs.  The result?  Never very flattering. But boy, I wasn't going to let that stop me from trying.  (Thank goodness I wasn't a teenager then, or things really might have gotten out of control.)

A Belated Birthday

**psst!  Totally fun bareMinerals giveaway happening right here!**

^ surprise camera flash ^
{ON top & hat (similar) | UO skirt (cute option) | qupid sandals (similar) | fossil watch | oasap ring, c/o}

Since it's a few days past the 4th of July, I guess this is as good a time as any to post my outfit from then.  Just a little belated.  Good thing I don't exchange bday cards with this holiday.  I just hate buying those "sorry I'm late, but..." birthday cards; they only seem to accentuate my tardiness and remind the recipient that I'm a forgetful failure.

The weather here has been -I'm just going to say it- unbearable.  I'm talking in the 90s with, like, 65% humidity.  It's swampy.  The night before, we went to a bbq at a friend's, and after sitting outside for many hot, sticky hours, we just couldn't bring ourselves to do it again the next day.  Since the AC unit in our apartment was struggling to do its job, we headed out to the mall for a little holiday shopping, some cool air, and a lovely dinner.  We topped the evening off by walking to see our town's fireworks where the mosquito to human ratio, was again, wildly unfair.  My skirt was top notch at providing ventilation in the mugginess, but my poor legs never had a chance.

In case you can't tell, this is my very loose interpretation of a flag.  Horizontal stripes and a repeating white pattern against a blue background is about as patriotically as I'm willing to dress.  God bless America.

{view from Mont Royal, the mountain that Montreal is named after}

Last week my boyfriend and I went to Montreal to celebrate our 6 year anniversary.  It was our first time there and we both sort of fell in love with the entire city.  It's artsy with colorful graffiti almost everywhere; has lots of quaint cobblestone roads; it's friendly, hip, diverse, and just a fantastic time!  We spent a few days there enjoying delicious food, practicing our French with the friendly & patient (and thankfully also English-speaking) people, stopping at cafes to sit outside for a drink or bite to eat on pedestrian-only streets, and oh yeah, wandering around a huge week-long music festival that happened to be taking place 2 blocks from our hotel!
