Flowers and Lace


What a gorgeous evening we've had! It's such a relief because today was a very long day at work. I spent it doing reports from an excel spreadsheet -- very boring... The second that I got out of there, I wanted to put on a pretty dress and enjoy the sunshine with my wonderful boyfriend!

This dress is from Aritzia and I think it is just the cutest thing ever! I love the way that it is a bit longer in the front and back than it is on the sides. Sort of the opposite to the popular high-low (which I'm obsessed with), but it is just as flattering to the legs. I think anything that doesn't cut straight across the thigh is the most forgiving with short dresses :)

I just added Google Friend Connect -- I hadn't realized that the follow button was taken away and this replaces it! Oh blogger, what will you do to us next?

I hope you have a wonderful Friday and that the weekend comes quickly for us all!



















I was wearing:

Aritzia Blazer and Dress
Zara Shoes
Tiffany, Blue Ruby amd Pyrrha Necklaces
Tarryl M, XO Bella and GIvenchy Bracelets
Clutch from boutique in Victoria
Kenneth Cole Watch (with rose gold here)

Thanks so much for visiting!
