Five Favourites as of lately….
My sweet new pair of Dani jeans by Citizens of Humanity. Generally I have the worst time finding jeans that fit me properly but I was lucky enough to recently find two pairs of denim that did the job right. Very soft and comfortable with just the right amount of give. Also I love the rolled up cuffs, I was kinda pretending I was a t-bird from Grease when I was wearing them last….
Summer = new sandals, if you haven’t figured that out by now. I’m really enjoying my new Ilicia sandals by Vince Camuto. I only wish that this image did the shoe justice. They are SO sparkly, I’m going to have magpies and all sorts of crazy birds diving at my jewelled feet. Seriously, these are so sparkly and shiny and pretty they actually are a tad bit obnoxious. I love it. I don’t even have to scream “Look at my feet! look at my feet!” when I’m walking around, everyone just does anyway. Win.
My most recent summer read has been an incredibly special one. Letters to Braeside Farm is a collection of letters written by my Grandfather during his time in the Canadian North throughout the Second World War. It is the communication from a young engineer, working for Imperial Oil to his family outside Hanna, AB. Alex Hemstock was part of the Canol Project, a joint program between the United States and Canada to gain access to an oil source that would not be threatened by Japanese invasion. Through his letters we learn about life in the Great White North, how it could grow on any guy, and about a man that is dearly and truly missed.
Yesterday was Canada Day!!!!!! This is how we look when we are so pleased to not have to wait in line or pay cover at the bar…. and then wait an hour and a half for our food! But seriously, Canada Day is great, everyone dresses up in matching clothes, we party with everyone in matching clothes… and then we watch sulphur explode after sunset. These things alone are enough to make any Canadian proud. Look how proud we were.
Oh! We were also celebrating free agents day in the NHL.
I think this sums about everything else up.
