First, I’d like to warn you before clicking “read more” that this quite a picture heavy post. I don’t typically get the chance to shoot at such a gorgeous location so I really took advantage of my setting. There were just too many stunning photos to pass up posting them all. I hope you’ll enjoy them just as much as I do!
What’s a girl to do when you’ve been cooped up for too long? Why, dress up, of course! I’m not easily motivated these days. At the very most, I’ll put on mascara and head out for my daily walk. There’s just nothing to dress up for when you’re going to Tim Hortons to read a book.
I’m trying to stay on task these days and one of my very many Dos on my “To-Do’s” list is outfit photos. I’ve also been challenging myself to grab pieces I haven’t worn in awhile/haven’t ever worn. Not as easy as it might look! There’s a very good reason they’ve stayed in my closet so long. Even after five years of blogging, I’m still completely clueless about what to wear sometimes. It can happen to the very best of us!
Would you believe that I just threw this whole outfit together? Because I totally did! The unseasonably warm weather has given me a bit more playroom with my outfit choices but honestly, I’m willing to endure the cold for a good outfit. Unfortunately, all of these pieces were purchased last season or even further back than that so I can’t give you any links!

Before dating Gil, I had no idea what Flag Day was but now I make it a point to be around for the holiday every year. Its one of my favourite American holidays to celebrate (I can’t say I really know the history behind the day) with Gil and his friends. I’ve enjoyed being around for the last few years and thoroughly appreciate them taking in a Clueless Canadian for the day!
I’m a fan of anything that shows off my legs, to be honest. However, something about this dress drew me in and I’m really happy I gave in. I really felt like a princess when I put it on. I probably spent a good 20 minutes before leaving just dancing around and twirling! Its so absurdly comfortable too. Sure, its not going to be the most practical choice for hot days but at least I won’t have to worry about the wind blowing up my dress. I might try to include more maxis in my wardrobe this summer or rather, just in general. What do you think? What are some of your favourite maxi dresses?
Generally speaking, I order a 3x from Forever21 but I wasn’t too sure how I’d fit into this dress. I’m used to skirts with tons of stretch or free flowing hips. This dress does have lining, so its not as free fitting as I’d hope. I was still able to get away with it though and I have ample room to feel comfortable. My favourite part about this dress? I was able to go bra free! I’m all for the lift and support a bra gives me but there’s something really exciting about going out braless. I’m also very weird and finicky about being able to see my bra strap, especially with a dress as simplistic and pretty as this. I wouldn’t want to distract from any of the aspects that I really fell for about this piece.
