It's official, I'm a weather jinx. Last weekend when I had the weekend off from work (and when these pictures were taken, don't judge me) it was pouring rain. We got dressed up in our festive Canadian gear and walked around downtown to celebrate the one year anniversary of the Olympics in a mess of umbrellas and puddles. This weekend while I was stuck at work? Gorgeous and sunny. Oh how the world hates me.

Sorry if I'm a bit Debbie Downer-ish. I have a bit of a stomach bug which caught me by surprise. AND I am finding that lately any time I look at "next week" in my day planner I am overwhelmed with how busy my work week looks.

Don't worry though, I've been counter balancing my busy work weeks by being completely unproductive in my personal life. And people say blondes aren't smart.


  1. That blazer! Ahhhh! It's gorgeous. I love how you paired it with red and denim, you look adorable.

    I hope you feel better soon! Being sick and feeling down is the worst.

  2. You look adorable, nonetheless!

    Hope you recover quickly from that bug! Being ill is no fun.

  3. ooo cute blog! fellow canadian here! woo Canada.

  4. I love your outfit! Especially your flats..too bad it was so rainy! You have the sweetest sense of style :)

  5. Melissa your blazer is just awesome. i love the lace on it. i have to get to mod cloth and order one too.

  9. I almost ordered this blazer! It is sooo cute! And I love the cozy knits & reds, so wintery & cute! Love the scarf! If you want to feel better about your Vancouver weather, you can always come visit the east coast! ;) Hope your days and your stomach get better, m'dear! xoxo.

  10. Damn, Vancouver rain. I was ecstatic that it didn't rain for me this weekend, finally. I have been having bad luck with the weather too.
