Ahh, these photos bring up major vacation withdrawal.  Justin and I had such a fantastic time in Scottsdale, Arizona last week.  I was there for a marketing course for work, while Justin joined me to soak up some desert sun.  Our little saying all week was that I was “the fool in school, while he was cool by the pool”.  I did get my fair share of pool side lounging in though, and I was definitely able to enjoy the 90 degree weather.  Oh Arizona, I sure do miss you.

    You look so much more polished than I was in the UAE desert the last two weeks! Beautiful photos, glad you had a good holiday.

    Love this look! And if you have to work, I guess that’s the best way to do it – while in a tropical location 🙂

      You are so right. . . I’m definitely not complaining! Thanks Corinne!

    I love the peplum over the blue skirt! I find most people only wear a peplum over a pencil skirt, so this is a nice change! I also adore the colour of the skirt.

      Thanks so very much Natalie! Surprisingly, peplum can be flattering over many different silhouettes! 🙂

      Thanks Marie-Eve! Yes, it was definitely a nice break from the freezing rain that they had in Toronto last week. Thankfully the weather is much nicer this week!

    Ah! I love the peplum top and tulip skirt. You wear those so well! I also love how you added a pump instead of a wedge heel sandal. It makes it…fancier? IDK, but I love it.

    • Jenny
      April 16, 2013

      Thanks so very much Ashleigh! I agree, the pump does make it a bit dressier. I was really limited on the shoes and bags I could pack, so this was the shoe I chose sort of by default. 🙂

    How clever are you to wear a belt as a necklace! Do you have a close up photo of how the belt looks like? I am just curious how it looked up close. Sounds like you got to work and play which is perfect!!!

      Aww, thanks Alice! I can check tonight if I can find a clear close up photo to send you. The belt is a twisted rope style, so it feels a bit nautical. It has a chain closure which made it really simple to wear as a necklace. I actually forgot to pack necklaces for my trip, so this was a bit of a last minute fix. 🙂
