What a week!  I meant to have these photos up by Wednesday, but here we are on Friday morning and I am just managing to now carve out a little blog time.  For better, or for worse, my week has been incredibly work-busy (as opposed to the more-fun vacation-busy!).

Skirt:  Joe Fresh {similar here and here}

Bracelets:  Gorjana chain; thrifted bangles
Midi/Knuckle rings:  Ardene {just meant to be cheapies to test out the look… After wearing between one and three knuckle rings for about a week, I have to admit, I am quite liking the trend! Similar rings here here and here}

I bought this skirt during a brave moment a few weeks back, and I am surprised how much I actually like it.  It’s a little outside my comfort zone, but also surprisingly wearable.

Oh Canada!

As someone who doesn’t particularly like wearing the color red (I think it makes my face look too flush), I am always perplexed about what to wear on Canada Day (July 1).  This year I opted for a white dress with a reddish purse & I am quite happy with the results 🙂

I am now officially on holidays!  This is the first year I have opted for a slightly longer Christmas vacation, and I am pretty excited.  We don’t have much planned other than visiting with friends and family.  I am very much looking forward to two weeks of relaxing, sewing, skiing, and maybe painting the basement (it needs a facelift – the walls are currently a terrible color of puke yellow…).
