My for-reals Sunshine

Yes. You heard right. It was sunny. Sunny enough to wear a dress sans cardigan - and I didn't even have to leave the province this time!


2Two dress, mrkt. wedges, Jules&James c/o Zellers flats (obviously I ditched those Godzilla-makers for the sensible flats)




No, that is not the elusive albino yetti you see in front of you, it is in fact: ME! I can understand why you were confused though as this was one of the first times my skin has seen sun since last summer. Seriously though, it's been so long that I've gone without a cardigan I felt like I was running around flashing people. I wasn't, but it felt that way. I could have, but I didn't. I wouldn't. I even ditched the wedges because I felt it was too inappropriate to pair the heel height with my bare legs. See, it's still just conservative, grey loving ol' me.

  2. Love this dress on you! What a figure! And you're probably right. That's pretty short for such high shoes, but the flats look great!

  3. Three words - Jergens Natural Glow.

    I wouldn't recommend the thrice a day application (what can I say I got a little impatient) but since I reined it in it's working beautifully.

  4. Ohh, and what a super adorable dress it is! I am so in love with all these Canadian brands that I have never heard of until you wear them. And the shoe change was sneaky there... ;)

  6. When you get sick of your dress collection, I wouldn't mind you sending them over to me.

    This dress is WAAAAY too cute. the exposed zipper, the ruffles, the bow. I want it please.

    And I'll have your hair too. I love your hairstyle in these pictures!

  7. Wait, it it just a normal bun? or did you do some funny braided thing? Because the hair is cute.

    and so are you.

    Oh, and i have a thing with wearing tall shoes with short things (or showing a lot of leg)- it just makes me uncomfortable.. even though it's totally the norm in the blog world!

  11. Why thank you all for all the wonderful compliments, and also for making me not feel lame for being scared of the uber tall wedges!

    @monkeyface I don't even know if most of the big stores here sell these brands, I always head straight for the local boutiques - they've got the good stuff! and it's rarely much more expensive than the bigger stores

    @emily I loved your use of thrice (conan reference??) I used to have that stuff but tossed it aside when we got a particularly good spring last year - looks like I'm going to have to track some down.

    @kimmie I'm so happy showing too much leg makes us both nervous! Also, the bun is all bun and no braid - my hair may have had some extra bead head and knots so the gathering made it look fancy and braided...
