Addicted to Polka Dots and Kitties

(Dress/ Shirt- J Crew, Hat- Gap, Purse- Anthropologie, Shoes- Urban Outfitters)

This was my happy going to Granville Island outfit when we were out it BC last week. Nothing like polka dots to make you feel AWESOME. Seriously, I've developed a mild addiction. I was thinking of turning to stripes as a form of methadone but I'm not really addicted. I can quit anytime I just don't want to.

I wanted to post yesterday but then this happened:

Three foster kitties have arrived at my house for adoption. I'm bottle feeding (and Gordon, my dog, is face washing) for now but they'll be available for their permanent homes in late August. Any takers?

Again? Oui.

(Top, Skirt, Bracelet- J Crew [wow, I'm a walking advert] Shoes- Rieker)

Remember how I promised to get more stylistically creative? Apparently I lied. Striped top and skirt and the same shoes. I know, try not to be over stimulated. I did reverse the colour scheme though. So there's that.

Actually I was feeling very 'French girl' the day I wore this. If it wasn't so durn hot I would have worn a jaunty scarf and said "Oui," a lot. (Mostly because it's the only French word I know. But also because I'm very agreeable.)

(Dress, Necklace- Anthropologie, Shoes- Rieker)

Some days are just meant for throwing on a dress and not fussing. I didn't even bother wearing a belt with this! What a lazy sod. Cheater dresses like this are the best- it looks like a top and a skirt but, fooled you, it's a dress! It's like a modern day Skort! (Those of you who are my age will get that one.)

Don't worry, I promise to get more stylistically creative next time.

Hipster Dog Walk

(Shoes, Shirt, Necklace- Anthropologie, Jeans- AG, Hat- Gap)

Nothing like a hat to say hipster. And to protect from wingy humidity riddled hair. Saskatoon is supposed to have a nice dry heat but apparently global warming has decided to change it up. It's all kind of steamy here this summer and, let me tell you, the hair no likey. 

I wore this on a dog walk last week. No glamorous brunches or fancy art openings for me. This is what I wear when I scoop dog logs.

Shoes- Step Ahead)

Okay, the Binky roughs are done, the family holiday is over and I'm finally able to turn my attention back to the ol' blog. I'm certain my infrequent posts as of late have done nothing for my readership, but deadlines are deadlines. Sorry folks.

So here is an atypically bright ensemble that I wore for dinner sometime last year. Okay, not actually last year, but it feels like forever ago. I'll get going on some new outfits this weekend, but, for now, here's one from history books.
