Aren't these pants fun? They're so loud you can spot me from anywhere! The thing that I love most about them is that they're very stretchy and they hug the body in the right places. Of course... I wish they were a bit longer (I know, that's ALWAYS the problem.), but since they were on sale at H&M for only $15... I'll let that part slide.

Having such loud pants, I wanted to keep the top neutral with a pop of colour, so a simple black tank top paired with my faithful mustard yellow cardigan did the trick. I got many complements on both the pants and the mustard cardigan, so I'm sure I'm going to wear this outfit out again!

Fun Fact for Fun Pants: The houndstooth pattern is called the chicken's foot or "pied de poule" in French. Interesting eh? The things you learn sitting next to a Quebecois at work.

Summer is Overdue

Sorry for the late post!

Over the Canada Day Long Weekend, I went to Portland to go surfing and didn't have any internet access... sad panda... but that's another story!

After a depressing, rainy June, it looks like July is going to be looking up! The weather man (shika shika kaboom!) said it's going to be sunny the next two weeks so I'm hoping I get to break out more summer gear before the sun goes into hibernation again.

I took advantage of one of the nicer days in June to snap these pictures of my summery outfit! Featuring soft colours and ladylike materials, I chose to keep this outfit short (literally) and show off my legs with a pair of high-waisted shorts. Finally, no leggings! On top, I'm really digging this mint spaghetti tank I got at Zara, and I layered it with a F21 crochet vest on top.

Oh yes, you also get to see my new Chanel in action!

Muubaa Athena leather jacket in lobster (here, or in brown); F21 crochet vest (old); Zara tank in mint; AE high-waisted shorts (old); AEO Artisan Wedge sandal; Chanel Jumbo Double Flap in Calfskin

See how the Jumbo size doesn't even look that big on me? A smaller bag wouldn't even be noticeable...
Surprisingly I can fit a lot of stuff in it. Maybe I'll do a 'What's in my bag' in my next post :)

Hope everyone had a great Canada Day and long weekend :)
