France at Global Fest 2013

 Hello summer! I swear it's just the sun making me this pale. Globalfest has finally started and I headed down today to see France's show. It's the first time France has competed in the fireworks competition, and they did wonderfully! Check out below to see a few of the fireworks, the different cultural pavilions, and my outfit.

Korean Inspired

 Hi everyone. Sorry about the short hiatus, it's been a bit of a hectic week with work and life. I did manage to drop by Zara (okay, I always drop by Zara because I work beside it), and pick up a few new pieces that I'm loving at the moment. One was this lovely blouse, and the other was a ruffled pencil skirt, which I can't wait to feature. I have no idea where I'll wear though. It's a bit too business-y for school, but I'm sure I'll manage something. 
There's a ton of new tops and skirts I want still.... Ugh, I'm going broke thanks to Zara...

Sundresses and Sunday Baking

I couldn't ignore the beautiful weather earlier in the afternoon. Sun was shining, birds were singing, etc, etc. It's been a hectic weekend for me, as I had two parties to attend and bake for Saturday night, along with brunch this morning.

Take Two

Yea! Take two for the floral blazer. In reality, I was just cold enough to wear jeans and wanted something to jazz them up a bit. Ankle zippers are no longer enough it seems.

Love the Rebecca Minkoff fall 2013 campaign. The bags are gorgeous (I'm loving the iridescent blue) and the lines! Oh God, the lines! Everything is so clean, yet feminine, bags, clothes, what have you! I can't get enough.
Eat your heart out.

Sun Showers

Hope you all had a good long weekend (or those of you who live in Canada)!
Since the majority of my friends seemed to have gone camping this weekend, I decided to wear another super easy outfit that I'd have taken with me had I been travelling. Not camping though, I don't camp, and so far, no one has been able to convince me otherwise. 

 I'll do a full post on what I pack travelling when I actually travel again, but here's a few tips. Small purses are best and wallets are best. You don't want to carry around a lot that might be pick-pocketed. I'm also a big believer in travelling light, so this little purse fits easily in a carry-on bag (I usually use a much larger purse in rder to have variety). This one also has a chain strap, you a pick-pocket won't be able to cut your purse away from you.
 Don't forget to pick clothes that are easy to layer in order to adjust to the different temperatures and weather

 I love asymmetrical pieces. This top is from Korea and so easy to pair with shorts or a mini skirt. I wear it all the time! It's chiffon, so it's definitely a suitable piece to travel with as it's light, folds super tiny, and is easy to layer.

 Having fun by myself (thank goodness, considering mini skirts aren't really playground friendly).

 I'm in love with the idea of midi rings... except that they have a tendency to fall off of me no matter what. I just ball my hands in fists to prevent that. All good, right?

And an outtake for you all. Can you guess why?

Top: Shirt from Korea
Bottom: H&M skirt
Accessories: Fossil sunglasses, Aldo sandals, Urban Outfitters midi ring, CoutuKitsch necklace
Bag: Spring

A Few of My Favourite Things

This is a culmination of all the things I wanted for the past year. Black wedge booties. Check. Botkier Lucy. Check. Michael Kors watch. Check. Lace. Check.
I love how all my favourite pieces just manage to come together. I guess that's what's great about liking relatively basic pieces.
What are your guys' favourite tried and true pieces?

Rain Rain Go Away

Calgary weather, you're such a pain. One minute you're perfectly sunny, the next, and I'm soaked. Oh well, that's what umbrellas and trench coats are for.

August Wishings

It's nearly that time of year... school is about to start in a month. I wasn't pleased that I spent my entire summer in Calgary either. I haven't for a solid three years. Oh well, at least I'll be able to visit Vancouver and Seattle right before heading to school.
So here's a list of things needed to prepare me sartorially for what will hopefully be an easy semester. Anything else I should pick up while I'm travelling?
