Just For Fun

tank top - Free People, maxi skirt - H & M, shoes - Walmart, bag - Winners, fedora - Roots, jewelry - Aldo & H&M

This is what I wore to church on Sunday for my cousin's Baptism. Just kidding! It was her First Communion. I kid again. Actually, I didn't wear this anywhere except in my back alley for these photos. "You mean you're going to dress up, I'm going to take pictures of you and then you're going to change back into your into lazy clothes?" my boyfriend asked. "Yup!" And then he looked at me as if I had a horn coming out of my forehead. To be honest I'm not sure if I'd be brave enough to venture out in public with my bra clearly showing through my top unless I was going out with friends to a club or something and you all know how often I go to the bar, right? (About once every three years a year.) So I think this was just me playing dress up. You know, for fun. That's what fashion is all about! Right?

How was your weekend? In Canada we had a long weekend and since I took Friday off I thoroughly enjoyed four whole days off from work. I went to the movies, attended a beautiful wedding, traveled to my family's cottage outside the city for a relaxing Sunday, had an audition for a short film about a guy who is addicted to rabbit food (I swear), watched 'The Bachelorette' finale with my girlfriends (yay J.P.!) and met my friend Janis for coffee at Credo:

Actually it was hot chocolate. I don't drink coffee.

The beautiful Janis sipping her mocha. What's wrong with this picture??

I hope you all have a wonderful week!

hahaha LOVE this post! I especially love your boyfriend's comment...I could see mine saying the same thing. Love the outfit! xo

Courtney Erin said...

I think you can totally pull off an exposed bra (but I know it can be a hard look to do without feeling a bit self-conscious)! Love the skirt as well.

This is the most perfect post ever. I love this outfit even if it only saw your back alley briefly. And I'm ALWAYS the one that orders hot chocolate at coffee shops - I never developed the taste for coffee. The last photo is hilarious.

HAHAHA Ohhh Marie, this post had me laughing out loud! My guy and I go through the same routine when I insist I do my hair/makeup for an outfit post and then change back into my pjs. And that last photo had me cracking up again! Glad you had a nice long weekend, love the sheer top I think you could totally get away with it at a lounge or restaurant at night :)

Tracy D said...

I actually not sure if that was a pattern on the shirt at first...love the shoes! How does he not feel the breeze, ugh.

Mrs. Julius said...

You could totally rock with outfit out in public! Maybe just not in church...lol. I want that fedora hat from Roots too!

Sounds like you had a lovely Canada long weekend! I'm going to the cottage for a couple of days next week (Marcus' first time!). Love cottages...wish we had our own.

Hope you have a lovely weekend Marie!
