A Hop, Skip and a Week

May 18, 2012
What I wore yesterday for dinner with our friends – they’ve both been living in Toronto for a couple of years and to our huge relief and gratitude, already managed to find the best sushi spot in town. Saved us some leg work for sure! 
Club Monaco dress, belt from Mexico, H&M booties, Marc by Marc Jacobs bag, ring c/o Social Experiment, F21 cuff
I’m off for the last day of my first full week now! I’ve had a great time so far and more than anything, I’m loving the fact that I get to write so much…building up a portfolio is obviously never a bad thing when you’re a young writer.
Hope you all have an amazing weekend, and for my Canadian readers, a great long weekend!

    I love the contrasting shades of green in this ensemble, my lovely pal. As you know, I'm a big fan of your ability to make a silk dress look effortless and sophisticated at the same time, and this one is definitely no exception. It's just about lunch time here at my office and the thought of you enjoying sushi in Toronto is making me extra hungry 🙂 Can't wait to ehar more about your adventures!
