For the Inside Out Film Festival I needed a day to night outfit that was going to take me from screening to after parties.
Daytime is for pineapple flats and velvet details. Night time is when the heels come out. Small swaps had me party ready!
For more on this year’s fab festival, stay tuned.
A great day for an easy dress over jeans. I’m into loose layers and this mustard and cobalt dress is still going strong after a few seasons. Thanks, H&M! And thanks La Carnita for a delicious price fixe taco lunch with churros and chocolate peanut butter pops to finish!
I know a dress is a good one when I want to wear it twice in three days. I picked up this blue and white, kaftan style midi dress with tie-front for $40, and turned the corner of the rack to find my friend holding the same one.
Super versatile and easy to wear, it was a perfect choice over jeans, for a very windy day, paired with a black leather jacket and ankle cowboy boots. On the patio and into the evening, it was comfortable and breezy.
Two days later I wore it for a day date with my nieces to the movies, ice cream and for a walk on the windy beach, paired with a long denim jacket, Topshop peep toe slides and whimsical earrings.
Aldo sunglasses, Zara moto jacket, Gap denim trench, Frye cowboy boots, Topshop leather peep toe boot and H&M dress.
I love the flora of this print, which reminds me of wallpaper or the plates we had in my house when I was growing up. And the tie front means that while it fits now, it will also be a cinch to cinch it when I have a waistline again!
Is there an outfit you are wearing on repeat this spring?
Paper bag waists with elastic are… elasticize pants. And I love them. This was a no-brainer for a breezy, warm day. Loose tucked shirt, just at the front and easy shoes. Messy bun. No jewellery.

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.
