Floral skirt + striped top = laziest easiest outfit recipe ever! It’s how I roll. Don’t fix what ain’t broken, etc., etc.
But the hot pink flats! They’re hot pink! I couldn’t resist, though god knows how many occasions a thirty-something has to wear hot pink shoes. Here’s an idea: let’s brainstorm … because I need to wear these puppies as much as possible.
This skirt is growing on me too. (It helps that it’s a perfect match for these flats.) It might just vie for the “favourite” title this summer. Oooh. Smackdown of the floral Anthro skirts? It’s on, baby.
I love visiting the Devonian Botanical Gardens, and the location (conveniently close to home) makes it perfect for a half-day family trip. I’m partial to the Japanese garden, but I love the riots of flowers happening everywhere this time of year. The kids were much taken with the butterfly house. OK, mostly Luka, but he was enthusiastic enough for two. (Teodora was taken … mostly with her shoes. And some dirt she mistook for playground sand, once she escaped the confines of her prison stroller.)
The gardens were packed with moms and tots, which I guess is to be expected on a random Tuesday in August. (Actually, not so random. First Tuesday of every month is half price admission. Thrifty adventures, it’s how we roll.) All parent minds think alike, I guess.
All the pretty flowers:
The weather was gorgeous, but hot. Hotter than Satan’s sweaty armpit. If I look slightly disheveled and mildly sun-stroked, it’s because I was. Tent-y cotton tops, for the win.
Ahhh, my favourite part of my closet … or any closet, for that matter.
Honestly, I could talk about my bags, and how they came into my life, for days … but I’ll spare you. If you’re curious about how my collection has changed in the last 2-3 years, read this first. Then come back, and look at some pretty pictures.
