27 Dresses?

I have had one busy summer.  Approximately seven-million wedding invitations (real number is seven) have come my way and all are taking place within three months of each other.  Two were this past weekend.  The first was for my Western University roommate Liz.  She married her macho man Jeff at the Miller Lash House at U of T Scarborough.  The grounds were stunning and Liz, being a wedding planner, planned and executed the most beautiful wedding.  I wore this dress that I found at The Bay.  It was 70% off for $36.  My bag is an old sale purchase from Banana Republic, wedges are from Pegabo, and necklace was borrowed from my friend T.

The following day the gorgeous Courtney married her math professor beau at Grace Restaurant on College Street.  It was the ultimate city wedding and tres chic.  She requested that her closest friends wear white – what a confident bride!  I wore this dress that I purchased at Lolita when I was a student in London, ON.  Those who went to Western or grew up London know that Lolita is the go to shop on Richmond street.   I decided to give the dress a boho look with big gold earrings from Forever 21 ($6) and strappy leather wedges from Aldo ($90).   Purse is a Cole Haan sample sale purchase.

Today I am off to Ottawa for another wedding…and no, my dress for this one isn’t floral print.  Stay tuned! CM

Blush Baby

We took a stroll through the beautiful U of T campus for these shots and got stuck in a tunnel of wind under the archway. I wore my blush tone skirt from H&M and paired it with this shirt dress top also from H&M. I wore it once as a dress here but I think I like it as a top better now. My moto-inspired jacket is from H&M too! Wow 3 items from one store…didn’t do that on purpose. Lace-up booties are from Spring shoes ($29) and chain necklaces are from my mom and grandma’s collections. Oh and I don’t know if you can see the buttons on my sleeves but those are button covers I got at a thrift store in Port Colborne. Gotta love random finds. JD

The wind crept up on me!
