(I'm noticing a Zara theme lately)

I've been trying to make a conscious effort to get outside more this summer. I know that sounds like a really obvious statement to make but I realized that last summer I barely went outside at all. I think I get swept up in the silly little tasks that require me to be inside and let the summer months pass me by.  I've been trying to go for more walks, enjoy my Dad's pool... just be outside. Why would I need to do laundry or dishes when the sun is shining? In summary, I am not doing a single chore until the Fall and when it starts getting cold out I will catch up on everything.

(Just kidding Mom and Dad. My place is really clean and I haven't neglected a single household chore since the weather turned nice.)


  1. I felt the same way about last summer! Before I knew it, it was fall and I hadn't really been outside! I'm trying to enjoy the weather as much as I can because it's beautiful out at the moment - who knows when it will turn into a week of rain!

    Loving this look! I love the combination of the textured jacket and polka dot! Gorgeous!

  2. Your outfit is so adorable, especially that polka dot blouse!! YES make sure to get out and enjoy this Canadian summer, it definitely doesn't last long.. It's so hot here in Toronto but I am not complaining :)

    Sincerely Miss Ash

  3. Love that jacket! And I really like how you styled it with the polka dots!

  4. How have I never been to your blog before?! I LOVE discovering new blogs near me. I live in Victoria :)

    I made the same promise to myself that I would get out and enjoy ever ounce of summer that I possibly could this year. It slips away so quickly that in no time we will find ourselves in the middle of October wishing for the next summer!

    You have such a pretty style! I love this look and all of the contrasting prints. :)

    Have a great day,

  7. Your outfits always make me want to go shop at Zara :) This is such a cute look...LOVE that blouse and the little jacket is perfect with it. And I agree...there is no way you should wash any dishes when the sun is shining :)
