Inspiration: Beat the Heat II

For the most part, it's been a fairly balmy & humid summer here in Southern Ontario.  With that said, I thought I'd share some more summer inspiration that's accumulated on my desktop the past few months.  Enjoy!

GI Jane vs. Rainbow Bright

These were taken last week during the heat wave when neon seemed like an appropriate choice.  Neon and camo? A little bizarre I will admit, but I seem to be drawn to unorthodox combinations of print and color...

Glory Days

Such a perfect, breezy Monday morning.  I'm suited up in most things F21, with this scarf being the newest member of the family.  This cardigan, although you can't really tell, is a soft shade of pink that somehow seemed to tone down said scarf a bit & completely fit in with the whole light-shade color scheme I have going on...

Photo Friday: One for the Memory Books

Happy Friday!  This summer has been fantastically busy & last weekend was no exception.  My parents were up for a visit & my liver is the only thing thankful they went back home ;)  Here are a few photos from last week....

Lazy Summer Days

You know those days that are so disgustingly hot that it's a serious struggle to even get dressed? This was most definitely one of them.  I picked the easiest combination of clothing & accessories, most of which only lasted a few hours any way...

Inspiration: Paris

I woke up to an overcast, chilly morning & needed to plan an imaginary vacation.  I've determined that Paris is a dream destination for most of the female population, most likely due to the romantic vibe that is so often portrayed there (the fashion & wine don't hurt either).  For those of you who have actually been, I'm jealous & for those of us who are still awaiting this trip of a lifetime, let's stat saving...

Sophisticated Cowgirl

Just a little western-inspired look for a Tuesday morning.  I've worn this skirt more than I should admit lately- it just seems to go with everything, which is not such a surprising thing when your a border-line clothing hoarder like myself ;)
