Ooh, I love a long weekend. I wish I weren't in so much pain, but a long weekend is still nothing to be sneezed at! Yes, my back is still very sore and the nerve is still pinched. I must make an appointment for acupuncture this week.
However, in the meantime, all plans for complicated outfits go out the window when it's hot. And it has been a HOT weekend - up to 28 degrees (that's over 80 for those of you on that other scale). Yes, we are all wusses here, but that is very hot for Victoria!
here with my aqua Fluevogs. It's a lovely cotton eyelet fabric, so wonderfully comfy on a hot day.
The necklace is one I picked up at the St. Vincent de Paul over a year ago for one of my steampunk costumes - it was $5.00. I hardly ever wear it, but I liked the look of the long pendant with this outfit.
Dress (Taylor, consignment), shoes (Clark's Artisans, consignment), necklace (thrifted).
Our friends Jean and Michael threw a pre-Canada Day barbecue at their house Sunday afternoon. It's better to have the day off after a holiday so that you can recover from the drinks and rich food!
It was roaring hot again yesterday, so out came another dress! This fabulous 60s vintage Hawaiian dress gifted to me from my aunt Kathy last week.
This dress fit like a dream. I wore it out for brunch, and a bit of walking around, as well as lounging around in a shady backyard - as with the previous outfit, it was great sunblock (I do block up exposed skin, of course). Plus, I didn't have to shave my legs. Heh.
these Fossil ones - the shape went really well with the patterns on the dress.
here several times on our journey to/from Powell River) and did a quick half-assed pedicure with 60-second polish in a matchy lilac purple. Toes are an accessory, right?
Visible Monday" over at Not Dead Yet Style. Get yourself over there and have a gander at all the lovely peeps.
I didn't take a picture of it, but see the furled up parasol in the background? I carried that around all day for extra sunblock. There's a picture of it here from last August. It was an excellent $10 investment several years ago, but the weather has to be just right: no wind, no rain (the parasol is paper).
Dress (Tori Richard of Honolulu for Andrade of Honolulu, vintage 60s, Joyce's), shoes (Enzo Angiolini, consignment), earrings (Fossil).
Someone has been barely tolerating the heat.
|"I flop where I want."|
I looked down at my feet and there he was, flopped out on the shelf, having a lie-down.
|"There are game pieces up there that I can steal."|
After lounging around hoping for chip crumbs, he expressed his dissatisfaction with our lack of messiness by hopping on top of the big CD shelf.
|"I'm king of the world!"|
Later on that night, I caught him on his post out on the deck.
|"How dare you use the flash?"|
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
