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.

I’m taking a short break from my Fashion Week posts to share this outfit and guest post I’m doing today for the super sweet Tash at her blog, Style-Isle, while she is on vacation.  I must confess that styling this burgundy skirt with this bright pink coat was not my idea.  I copied this combination from a J.Crew ad. . . the very same ad where I first laid my eyes on this beautiful fuschia coat.  I already owned the skirt, but I knew that once I bought this coat I would definitely pair them together.

 

Speaking of a vacay, I’m pretty excited to be heading to Chicago this long weekend with my family for a few days of fun, great shopping and delicious food.  Heading to the Windy City for Easter has become a tradition for our family, minus my brother.  A weekend of shopping is not exactly what he considers to be “fun”.  Oh, boys. . . what do they know!?  I’m also looking forward to indulging in what I think is the best cheesecake out there, after my Mom’s of course.  I think I’ve tried nearly every flavour of cheesecake on The Cheesecake Factory’s menu, my favourite’s being the Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cheesecake and the Lemon Raspberry Cream. . . yummmm!

 

Today, I’m also linking up with the fabulous Lauren at her blog Style Elixir, for her Style Sessions series.  Thank you to both Tash and Lauren for allowing me to share my looks on your blogs!
