Spent an awesome day at the theatre with my lady – saw a production of The Orchard, after Chekhov, a great post-colonial piece. And also enjoyed Grand Hotel and Of Men and Marriage ( all part of the Shaw Festival’s 2018 season).
Rocking heatwave approved palazzo pants and tank (H&M), hat (Lack of Colour), striped layering piece (Mendocino) and shoes from Call It Spring (5 seasons ago). Allia on the other hand looked smashing, and/but was literally wearing an entire outfit identical to a 60 year old man also in attendance. And I love her for that. She is my own personal #manrepeller
Hats off to end of Summer Style! Yet, the heatwave persists.
I went on a spree a while back and feel VERY happy that I did, since each item was selected in the hopes that it would fit now (then, several months back) and later (now, now).
One fave feature of Zara’s website is that you can search the sale section by size. Nothing was over $30 and every item can be tried on at home, returned in store – no questions asked, and you can source all the stock in one place (way better than going to several stores for hit-and-miss sizing).
Knowing a baby was in progress, I selected a few great, stretchy pieces. Thanks Zara!
What is your go-to online shopping destination? Why is it your favourite? Any sites that you have tried and now avoid? How did you get burned?
One of my favourite ways to beef up my wardrobe is via clothing swaps. Get together a crew of your fave friends and bring the things you no longer wear. This top is great during pregnancy, and was a cast off from one of my coworkers!
Put on a tent dress with a tiny sliver of a belt to join a friend for lunch at Queen Mother … and then for dinner with more friends, at Tabule. So maybe the dress is as much about food baby as baby-baby.
Dress: HM conscious collection from 2016
What is Super Mario’s favourite fabric?
Denim, denim, denim.
Sing it to the Nintendo tune. It’s a terrible joke, but it pops Into my head every time I think about wearing this gorgeous denim trench. The Canadian tuxedo, denim on denim, is the quintessential Canuck fashion choice. Pair a trench with great boots from Clarks (complete with orthotics), some basics and a cool attitude and it’s an outfit that works as well with a belly as without.
Purposefully did no touching up on these photos. We all need a bit more realness, right?
Also, I’m not super keen on matching my shoes to my handbag. obvs. All my fashion choices are practical – Can I walk in these shoes? Am I warm enough? If I get too hot, can I take some of this off? Can I sit and eat a massive meal in these, as baby kicks me in the guts, and still feel comfortable? If yes, proceed.
Cheers to you and hoping for many blue skies ahead.
