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.

Sweater: Joie (old). Top: H&M. Jeans: H&M. Shoes: Aldo. Travel Bag: Winners. Watch: Michael Kors. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

This outfit is very typical of what I always wear when I travel by air:

 

  • Comfy slip-on flats so I can easily remove them at Security and on the airplane (with socks in my purse).
  • A scarf or a sweater with fur collar to stay warm because I’m always freezing on planes.
  • Layers so I can remove some of them when I reach my warmer destination.
  • A large carry-on travel bag to hold anything that I don’t want to risk losing in my checked luggage, usually including some of my designer handbags and shoes, jewellery, laptop and camera.

 

Oops. . .  you may notice the hair elastic on my wrist.  Not the most stylish accessory, but definitely another essential for airplane travel.

 

 

Feminine Flare

Coat: Jacob (c/o). Top: H&M. Shoes: Boutique 9. Belt: BCBG (from a dress). Tights: Hue. Handbag: Chanel. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

I’ll venture to say that almost any Canadian woman you stop on the street would say that they have at least one item from Jacob hanging in their closet.   I already had my eye on this flirty flared trench coat when the sweet people at Jacob offered to let me choose a piece from their new Spring collection.  Of course, I’m a sucker for the pretty blue colour and feminine flared shape.  I’m really excited to experiment at bit with this coat and actually wear it as a dress once the weather warms up a bit.  I can already picture wearing it with bare legs, my sparkly citron Anthropologie belt (as worn here), and maybe my yellow Nine West pumps.
