Hello and welcome to the fourth edition of Last Week in Pictures! This is actually sort of the last 2 weeks or actually even last 2 and a half weeks in pictures, but who is counting? Anyway the past little while has been spent mainly at work and apparently (as evidenced by the above photos) doing a lot of nail painting. I'm a little obsessed with painting my nails. Every time they start to chip in the least I feel compelled to paint them. Canada Day happened and I celebrated mainly just by wearing my Canada themed bracelet shown above and listening to fire works in the distance. I saw Girl Talk, took pictures of sea foam toilets and the CN tower, and Dale and I ate a lot of ice cream. Oh, also - the staff room lunch table is always covered in ketchup packets. Always.
Hello lovelies! It has been awhile, hasn't it? I've been working like a dog since the store opened so I haven't had much time to post. To tell you the truth, I think I needed the break from personal style blogging. To take a step back and create my outfits without having how it will photograph in mind. It's been nice but now I am ready to get back into it at least once or twice a week!
As you may have noticed The Wardrobe Challenge was a bit of a failure. Julia and I just really didn't have the time to carry on with it. I hate not finishing things but it just wasn't meant to be for right now so I am going to carry on as if I was normal. In the very least, it was a great learning experience. I now know the extent to which my closet needs to be paired down and tomorrow I am going to donate even more stuff and start packing for my big move in a month!
After ceasing the Wardrobe Challenge I started to take on a bit of a summer uniform on the days when I don't work. This button up is a key component of said uniform as the get-up mainly consists of a simple dress with a little light button up tied round my waist. It's cute and comfy and keeps me cool so I think that is all that matters for the summer. It's not the most fashion forward but when it is nearly 40 (104 fahrenheit) degrees out I can't be bothered. Also, these crocs flats have been a foot saver whilst working on the floor all day. Now I'm down to minimal pain when before it was almost unbearable.
My summer uniform also calls for untamed wild curly hair. I am trying to let it grow out and not straightening it is allowing it to grow super fast! I want to have real long curly hair.
Said summer uniform is great for lounging around the pool with a bathing suit underneath and then taking walks through the park with the boyfriend whilst sipping on Tim Hortons Strawberry Banana Smoothies. Yum. I wish summer could last forever.
