In the summer months I pretty much live in dresses.  They are so simple, comfortable, and cool to wear.  I’ve been wanting a denim dress for a while now and was so excited when I found this one at H&M in their (very teeny) maternity section.  It’s still a bit big on me, but growing room is essential these days.  Plus, the roomier fit keeps it feeling cooler on our hot, sunny days.  It’s been perfect to wear working at home, for coffee (or tea) dates, and out running errands.  I love when I make smart purchases!

It’s taken me a while to find the perfect pair of printed pants…especially now with my new physique.  I have found most to be cut very slim through the hip giving me a not so flattering silhouette.  This pair I found at Asos.com in there maternity section.  They are so unbelievably comfortable.  So comfy in fact, I wore them on my roadtrip last Thursday.

Needless to say, our roadtrip was a bust.  With the devastating floods in Calgary and surrounding area, there was no way to make it to our final destination.  My heart goes out to all of those affected by the Alberta floods.  xo

When I think of The Great Gatsby, I think of lace, pearls, jewels, and exotic head wraps.  It’s a film where luxury and opulence are bountiful.  To take a style cue from this flick, based in the Roaring 20′s, I opted for a flattering white lace dress.  To keep that 20′s feel without getting too flapper costume like, I went with a modern ombre print scarf that I knotted and tied up turban style.  I also went with a 20′s inspired t-strap shoe but in a modern nubuck leather.  Accessories like this tassel pearl necklace, large gold cuff, and sequin clutch complete the look by adding some luxe.

To keep a casual look with runners still looking polished, I like to play off the shoe colour. These pink and silver Puma’s are perfect paired with bright pink jeans and a grey top. The stripes keep the sporty feel, while adding a silver clutch gives an unexpected bit of glamour. I love denim jackets for spring. This one I have had for years. The unique detailing and cropped length make it a bit more playful.

Weekends just seem to fly by, don’t they?  I had a full weekend with a photo-shoot on Saturday that I styled followed by clothing returns.  I took a little break afterward with my husband for some very yummy eats at Bel Cafe (including some macrons to go).   My Saturday night consisted of a night in on my couch doing some writing and re-watching most of the episodes from the current season of Girls.  My Sunday was pretty relaxed.  I got to sleep in and then made a big brunch to fuel my brain for more writing and photo editing. Of course my Sunday night involved watching the Oscars.  Watching the red carpet coverage always makes me with I had the type of lifestyle where gowns were needed in my wardrobe.  Maybe one day.  Have any red carpet favorites?  I really thought Jessica Chastain looked amazing.  She had that whole old school Hollywood glamour thing going.  Beautiful!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Happy Monday!
