stripes, polka dots, coral and a hint of mint



Ellison blazer [similar] | Jacob top [similar] | 2Two shorts [similar] | Toms ballet flats
bracelets: derng, H&M | bag [similar] | chanel orange fizz polish



When . Sunday, June 10th
What . brunch at le cartet, touring old Montreal, bixi'ing the Plateau apartment hunting
Weather . sunny, hot, humid and oh-so wonderful!

Montreal was amazing. It was warm. The kind of warm we don't usually get in Halifax until mid-July. I was in heaven. I was also thrown through a bit of a loop since I wasn't expecting it. Most of the outfits I brought were three-parters [as in picture no.1] and I definitely had to downsize on the layers. As much as I was sad to see that handsome stripe blazer get rolled up and stuck in my bag, it was amazing to enjoy full-on summer weather. The fact that my blouse and shorts did so well on their own? Well that's just gravy.

  4. I wish we had shorts weather here! And I totally know what you mean about wanting to wear the blazer to complete the outfit but it being too warm :) and I love your shoes! I wanted a pair of toms ballet flats but didn't realize how cute the cap toe version is. Are they comfy??

  9. Whoa, you're wearing cap toe Toms?  That's cool.  And I'm dying for warmer weather too!  We don't get it until July either (sometimes) and sometimes not even until August.  Indeed your blouse and shorts did quite well on their own!

  17. Halifax is the same! On Monday it was 9 degrees [about 48]! and today it's 25 [about 77]!! but it will be back down to 17 [about 63] by the weekend! Seriously, we should all just pick up and move to SoCal... or ARIZONA!!

  18. Thank you! It's funny how perfect it ended up being!

  19. You definitely should, it is worth the trip! Although stick to the summer months.. winter is a little rough

  20. They are really comfy!! I will say, the heel frayed pretty quickly [there's no hole though, just threads] although I'm told that happens with all toms. Even though it did that I'd still totally try and get another pair of these! I love how the are relaxed but also dress up an outfit at the same time

  21. Thanks! It's always amazing when you stumble onto an outfit that you can just throw on and feel good in, I am definitely going to be repeating this outfit!

  22. You should get one!! I find them slightly difficult to style, but when it's right it's SO right that it makes you forget all the wrongs.
