While attempting to accessorize this past week I realized that I have an abundance of bangle sets but am lacking in more casual and mixed material bracelets. I took a peek around a few of my usual stores online and was surprised at the ridiculous prices they were charging for simple bracelets (like this one). I ended up finding so many that I would love to own on the very first page of an ETSY search.
Here are a few that really caught my eye...

wine is the devil

I woke up this morning and quickly remembered why I don't drink anymore. A hangover plus a toddler who wakes before 6 is not a good combination. However, we had a lovely night of great friends, a delicious BBQ, and a few too many bottles of wine. 
I didn't actually wear this today; I look like hell and there is nothing blog worthy going on up in here. I wore this the other night. I'm thinking these shorts won't be worn too often as they are mighty short. They seem to be shorter in the back then front, or maybe my arse is just making them ride up. Either way, I was kind of uncomfortable wearing them, which is a shame because the color is so pretty. Maybe a baggier shirt might be the solution...I'll give that a try.

shorts & tee: H&M
shoes: Aldo
bracelet: from Mexico
watch: Fossil

loving at this moment

OMG this bag is the shit. I am really picky about bags and find many of them really boring but this one is a classic. And expensive. And gorgeous. And expensive. And I'd trade a couple of cats for it.

I am becoming a big fan of See by Chlo矇, particularly the bags and shoes. These boots are fantastic.

city employees

I'd like to thank the City of Ottawa workers for finally coming to fix the massive holes in the ground on the path behind my house. I would like to specifically thank the two city workers for the riveting morning conversation surrounding the possibility that one of you may have contracted herpes from one of your past conquests. I call bullshit on the part where you said you've been tested 10 times in the last few months. And may I suggest you wear a friggin' condom...it's not that big a deal. And perhaps choose a more appropriate setting for these conversations...you never know who's drinking a morning coffee in their backyard. Losers.

Since Kim was so thrilled that I'd posted a few pics of Gia, I thought I'd try to keep it up. She is quite adorable, and well dressed if I may say so myself!

On me:
Jacob sweater & shorts, snake skin flats from Veronaearrings from Simons, necklace & ring from F21, bracelet from Mexico

On Gianna:
H&M tank and pants, Old Navy flip flops, JoeFresh hat

wednesday at the office

2 things:
1 - forgot to get my sis to take a closeup of my arm/finger candy and the fact that I had matching nails
2 - first time I've worn my hair up this much. i freaked out a bunch of people at work who seem to have never noticed my head is more than half shaved

pleather jacket ~ F21 (wow I love this thing) {last seen here}

black tank ~ H&M

pig studded flats ~ Marc by Marc Jacobs via SSENSE {last seen here}
necklace ~ Aldo
chain belt ~ really old
bangle ~ F21 or H&M

I've got a special treat today. My sister noticed a co-worker of ours, Gayatri, looking extra matchy and super cute today so we made her pose for us. Her top is SO awesome...and of course she got it in India. I think we should give her a pile of dough and she hook us up with some Indian loot!

ummm summer?

It didn't feel like summer this morning when I got dressed, hence the scarf. It's still chilly but if I sit real still in the sun I can almost pretend summer didn't disappear. So I'm about to hit the deck with a book (and maybe a beer) and make the most of nap time. I really love my "job", and good thing my boss doesn't mind if I forget to brush my hair!

On Jen: 
H&M tee (see it again here) and scarf, Zara jeans, red TOMS, Guess watch, and bracelet from Mexico

On Gianna:
Old Navy sweatshirt, JoeFresh tee, Zara leggings, baby TOMS
