I love summer storms.  Well, I should say I love summer storms in my hometown.  My hometown gets the most incredible lightening and thunder storms.  The skies turn the most gorgeous shades of pinks, purples and greens, and the lightening is so bright that it literally lights up the entire sky.


Yet only 4 hours from my hometown, Toronto gets dark and nasty rain storms, nothing like those of where I grew up.  The storms here are gloomy and grey instead of pretty and colourful.  These outfit photos were taken last night after work, just as a terrible storm was brewing in our City.  I hope everyone made it through the disastrous flooding that hit Toronto last night, and here’s hoping for a safe and rain free rest of summer!


P.S. I’m linking up today with Lauren from Style Elixir for her weekly Style Sessions.




In The Trenches

Dress: RW&Co (similar). Trench: Bebe (old). Shoes: Joan & David. Clutch: Henri Bendel. Belt: Ann Taylor. Rings: Coach, Kate Spade. Watch: Michael Kors. Necklace: ASOS. Bracelets: BCBG, Forever 21, J.Crew. Sunglasses: Chanel.


I’ve had this brown satin trench coat for years.  It’s one of those pieces that I always forget I have in my closet, but I’m pleasantly surprised when I rediscover it.  This drop waist dress has been on heavy rotation lately too (also seen in the post Plum Drop).  I hope everyone has a wonderful day and thank you so very much for taking time to visit with me!



Changing Leaves

Sweater: H&M Cashmere (recent). Turtleneck & Skirt: H&M Trend (recent). Shoes: Joan & David. Handbag: Coach. Rings: Gorjana, Kate Spade, Coach. Watch: Michael Kors. Bracelets: Forever 21, J.Crew, BCBG. Sunglasses: Chanel.


During a very successful H&M shopping trip last week, I picked up these 3 perfect Fall pieces. . .this super soft cashmere sweater (yes, that’s right, I said cashmere from H&M!), this semi-sheer burgundy knit turtleneck, and this full skirt in the prettiest pumpkin colour.  I did not intend to wear them as an outfit, but when I got home and saw these yellow, orange and burgundy pieces together, the colours reminded me of the beautiful changing leaves on the trees right now, and I just had to wear them all at once.
