A Beginning and an End

June 24, 2013

Jeans c/o James Jeans, bag c/o Mary Nichols, flats c/o Tieks, H&M blouse,
necklace c/o J.Crew, Twenty8Twelve leather jacket
My sister graduated from uni recently (she’s the beauty down below!) and this is what I wore to her convocation – I was racing straight from work and the convocation itself involved a pretty lengthy walk so comfort was key, but thankfully this J.Crew necklace plus a little winged liner helped to add some glamour to an otherwise casual look.
In other news, this week my boyfriend and I are finally beginning to move into our new space (!!!) so it might be a littler quieter on this front as moving is usually eeever so slightly hellish, i.e. knowing me and my slightly high-strung disposition, I’ll probably have a freakout or two. I’m really intent on enjoying at least some of my Canada Long Weekend so hope to get most of the move done after work during the workweek, but the moving will likely eat into some of the weekend.
The good news at least is that a. we’ll be moved into a new space that we’re so excited about (and that I’m excited to share with you once it looks half-decent!) and b. I just wrapped up a really amazing weekend of sipping margaritas, singing karaoke, late night gallivanting and long sleep-ins, so if I have a mostly work-filled weekend, it’s not the worst thing that can happen. My only hope is to get some sun in, and thankfully, patio furniture is the first thing on our list!
Speaking of sun, get in the running for a perfect little summer-apropos number from Vamastyle by entering my giveaway – only one week left to enter! It will take you mere seconds and as any of you who have been reading me for awhile know, I love me some Vamastyle…their pieces are adorable. Good luck!
