And Then There Was Sun



tank top - Target    cargo pants - Vigoss, Saks Off 5th      fedora - Roots     shoes - Spring     jewelry - H & M & F21

After days and days of never-ending rain and miserable cold weather, the sun finally decided to peek its pretty little head out and grace us with its presence. It was about time because I was getting ready to sell my belongings and move to Mexico to live on the beach. Seriously. We've had such a crappy and pathetic summer this year, those of my readers who live in Alberta know what I'm talking about! Anyways, this is what I wore yesterday to run some errands and pick up a Skor Blizzard (drools) at Dairy Queen for myself and a vanilla cone for D. which I bribed him with in exchange for taking my pictures. Yes, sometimes I have to do that. Especially when I pull him away from his precious video games. I bought these pants in the states at a Saks Fifth Avenue outlet in Phoenix. I had been searching for the perfect pair of reasonably priced, non-J Brand cargo pants and was stoked to have find these for $30.00. Ahhh, I love outlets! Speaking of outlets I picked up the fedora I'm wearing for $10.00 at the Roots outlet in Edmonton. Score!

I hope you all had a nice weekend! Besides enjoying the beautiful weather on Sunday, I attended a wedding shower for D.'s sister and a stagette for a friend of mine, both on Saturday. The shower was quite tame but the Bachelorette party included lacy underwear, penis straws and lots of shots of alcohol. Good times, good times ; ).

Have a great week!

You look so stylish - love the cargo pants.

Any party that includes penis straws is guaranteed to be fun :) Happy to hear the rain is gone!

Lala: Noooo, no, no, no male strippers! Thank God. They're so awkward! At least in the city I live in ; )

You look super foxy, Marie! I LOVE your cargos (I've wanted a pair forever but can't seem to find the right pair... *sigh*), that hat is sick (sweet score!), and your heels are amazing! All in all, a perfect 10 ;)

I'm glad you're finally getting some nice weather - the heatwave broke here and we're back to regular summer temps (thank God!). And I love your fitted cargos, I've been searching high and low for the perfect pair but keep coming up empty.

Megan said...

i totally miss outlets here and would love a j.brand outlet (ok or anything for that matter!) i love how you paired those pants with the stripes!

Nikosmommy said...

I was obsessed with cargo skinnies last fall,,,searching high and low for a Non-j-brand pair too(because of course they are RIDICULOUSLY expensive) and I found a pair at winners and H&M....i wore the heck out of them both, they're perfect!
Glad to hear the weather is improving...i'm beyond tired of Alberta summers...calgary's have been SO shitty for the last 3 years now. I've come to Greece to get my Vitamin D infusion!

Sandy Joe said...

.... and then there was more rain AGAIN. The fedora, what a steal! The perfect summer accessory. Thanks for all your lovely comments. I sincerely hope it DOES NOT rain on their wedding day.

Kristy said...

I love American outlets, especially when they have the Off Saks Fifth Ave. store and Barneys outlet! :)

Unlike you, I long for a cooler weather. TO has been struck by a heat wave for the past week. It's gross. SO GROSS. You wanna switch cities? :p

Love the safari chic outfit ;)
