Buttoned Up. Pared Down.

Variety is the spice… and the meat and potatoes of life. Unless you’re vegan. I love a good basic that can go a few ways. My moss coloured cropped culottes are a good bet for a spring, summer or fall outfit. Styled with a cute flowy top, with embellished neckline and some sweet footwear for height, or flats for comfort, this is an easy way to look pulled together… while wearing an elastic waist.

Headed to a birthday party… with live steel drum band. I’m wearing a hand painted silk top with bat wing sleeve, and depending on how much I need to carry, how much the temperature drops and how long I’ll be on my feet … the rest will figure itself out. I can hear the music already!

The Heat is On

The Heat is On

On the first day back at work, I’m considering putting in for Sweat Pay, some kind of bonus for sticking it out in the heat that has soared to plus-33 degrees Celsius.

Humidity and scorching weather notwithstanding, this feather weight maxi dress won’t sweat if, even if the same can’t be said for you. Keep your locks off your shoulders and makeup light and dewy. Look like a breath of fresh air, though you feel quite sure you’ve melted.

Hello first day of the new work year!
