The District

July 30, 2012

Necklace c/o KVBijou, Club Monaco skirt, H&M top, Gap sandals, bag c/o Mary Nichols
On Saturday I headed down to the Distillery District with Emaan, one of my besties (and sometimes outfit-snapper…follow her on Twitter here), for chocolate, beer and sun. It’s a decent walk so comfy flats were obviously a must, along with some comfy basics. Given that the look was so simple it was the perfect backdrop to showcase one of my favourite new necklaces from KVBijou. If any of you watch The Bachelor or The Bachelorette (and don’t be ashamed because I will unabashedly admit I’m a huge fan), then you’ve definitely seen Kelsey’s designs on the show, where it’s featured all the time. I love the soft impact of this Grace necklace and how seamlessly it’s worked into all my looks so far!
Two other news items too: 
1. The sale I curated for Shoppalu, one of my retail faves, is up on STYLE/STALK as of today. I’ll be posting looks from the sale but be sure to check out STYLE/STALK now for all the amazingly reduced sale items and to check out some of the looks!
aaand 2. It’s Matt’s birthday today! Happy birthday to the crazay who’s been my partner in crime for the past four and a half years, I love you! And also he’s finally caught up in age with me, so I’m no longer a cougar…thank God.
Happy Monday everyone!

    Hello, Zowie skirt! I just recently rediscovered my own Zowie at the back of my closet – somehow I forgot I owned it?! – and have been making up for lost time in a big way. But somehow it never occurred to me to wear it with a white tee? Silly me – I'm going to have to try it out soon because you are making it look just lovely and perfectly summery, pally. Sounds like you've been having a pretty fabulous July so far, I'm a little jealous of all your TO adventures. But mostly I just miss you 😉
    PS: Happy birthday to Matt!
