We're nearly at the weekend, and it will be a long one here as we celebrate July 1st Canada Day! Woo!
- Dress - I'M by Isola Marras, Florence, Italy; last worn here with shorter boots in April 2018
- Boots - Matisse, consignment; last seen here (3rd outfit) on our last rainy day in May
- Coat (below) - Lord & Taylor, thrifted; last worn here earlier this month
It was so chilly (13 degrees!) that I nearly wore pants under this dress. Fortunately it warmed up over the day.
I am fond of this dress - I bought it in Florence, Italy, at a small boutique. If you click back to the previous wearing, I link to a video of models doing a runway show - and my dress is in there!
I'm wearing a short half-slip under it for coverage (and I have nylons on).
Outerwear! Here I thought I was done with coats. Bah.
Gold and green bling:
- Necklace - Kiam Family, thrifted
- Bangle - thrifted
- Earrings - thrifted
- Bracelet - Butler Fifth Avenue Collection, consignment
Wishing you all a very happy weekend, and to my Canadian friends, happy Canada Day! I'll be back on Monday with tales of adventure. Thank you again for stopping by!
Boots in summer, oh goodness! But what a pretty dress Sheila and it works well with the tan boots too. I love the pattern and can see it looks like a lovely silky fabric too. Have a super weekend of celebrations sweetie xReplyDelete
I know, unthinkable! But at least I got to wear this dress again. Thanks, Anna!Delete
Thanks for teaching me about your country!ReplyDelete
Tell you when a holiday happens isn't teaching you much. ;-PDelete
Fantastic dress, such beautiful colors! Enjoy your weekend!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Nancy, you too!Delete
Enjoy a lovely long weekend and Happy July 1st! Am drooling over this dress and your entire outfit. Okay, so boots in summer, so-so, but given the heat in NY the thought of boots actually is cooling. :-)ReplyDelete

Thank you, Laurie! Yikes, I hope things cool off for you soon! Glad your comment was able to make it through!Delete
Okay, so the Comment (before publishing) says my name! For now, the "Unknown" is me, Laurie. :-) One of these days I'll get it working properly!ReplyDelete

WOW, I love that dress. It is so gorgeous and I love that it was made in Italy.ReplyDelete
I’d love to see a photo of your wardrobe one day, with all your fab dresses. Happy Canada Day. X
I love how unusual it is, thank you, Jess! Oh, you'll see my wardrobe eventually - I take tons of pics every 6 months when I clean it out. Thank you!Delete
The boots look great with the dress! I was just looking at my tall boots in my wardrobe this morning wondering when I will wear them again, it's been a while! I think I need to get some dresses out to wear with them :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Mica! I hope you get to wear your boots over the winter!Delete
I've always liked that dress. We're having 30 degree temperatures here (with the humidex), which is supposed to increase to 40 degrees by Wednesday. I miss Vancouver and the 22 - 25 degree temperatures!ReplyDelete
Me too! Yikes, that's crazy! I've been watching the temps in Hamilton (thunderstorms!) and hoping they pass before I make it out there.Delete
Nice dress,and accessoires applied too...ReplyDelete
I've always loved your italian dress, it's so beautiful, elegant and looks like a real quality piece pretty enjoyable!, and you're gorgeous in your dress and boots ensemble!ReplyDelete
I love how unusual it is too. Thank you!Delete
