Peasants Feast.


My very cool, radically humble friend, Erin, hosts a yearly event called peasants feast. You bring food and drink to share, and you share something of yourself. In past years I’ve seen mime, song, poetry, and video installations. This night always features some quirky entertainment, laughter and lots of surprises.

It always merits, for me anyway, a fabulous outfit.

Dress and boots: Zara

This year was no exception. There was the repotting a plant to the soundtrack of Beyond ThunderDome. A burlesque performance to Fever, Telling the story of the making of a femme fatale. Short stories. Canada Heritage minutes performed at rapid pace. A power point about the highs and lows of teacher-Life, with funny visuals of student work.

Cheers til next year.

Ps. The boots were an impulse purchase and I regret them not at all.

Feeling the Florals


I love all seasons, but particularly love cold weather floral motifs. H&M has some blooms in stock right now that are cheap and cheerful, which I plan to wear year round.

Layered up and button fronted with a shaggy vest for a trip to the aquarium.

Or open, over a cherry red slip dress with lips to match.

and pssst: Matchy matchy. My polish never lasts more than two days so the chipped ones flip to the next colour. #nailhack

Check out some of the gorgeous flower power on offer and catch that bouquet before it’s gone.

When you choose a dress that gets 30+ compliments in one wear


I walked by the dress, paused midstep, turned on my heel and walk straight into the store. Once I saw it, I knew I had to have it. Thank you H&M, for a dress that's equal parts Granny, BoHo, and romantic. If the colour hadn't sold me, the loose ruffled construction and drop waist would have.

For a day of seeing live theatre and enjoying one of the year's last lunches on a patio, this green midi dress, flat black boots and cat lady bag were a perfect fit.
