I went to Sidney yesterday with the lovely Carly Dame to get our thrift shopping on and of course we had to break to snap some pictures of our ensembles. Currently this is on of my favourite outfits; I love the mix of black and white patterns with just a splash of red. I grew up with my mom wearing her Champagne d’Argent sweater when she would go to rabbit shows (they’re like dog shows) and doing chores. It wasn’t anything special then. I didn’t even remember she had it until 6 months ago when I was feverishly looking through her draws for some black tights and came across it. It was love at second sight.

When I find a look that goes together well I tend to wear it for several days in a row if I can get away with it. If I’m seeing all the same people I won’t do it, but different people? Yes. I will lazily grab the same clothes from my floor and assemble myself as a copy of the previous day. This is what happened yesterday.

Lots of love,

Kate

I went for a job interview a couple of weeks ago and the interviewers asked what I was interested and how I liked spending my free time. I haven’t thought of that question in awhile so I responded pathetically with, “I like playing soccer? and hanging out with my friends…?” They had to prompt me, because they had read a few post on my blog and saw that I liked the Blue Jays. Needless to say I didn’t get hired. However, it has prompted me to start getting back into things I liked to do and expand on the interests I currently have.

Things I like doing:
Reading: I love reading. Harry Potter is my favourite. I actually read the entire series to the 9 year old boy I was looking after as an au pair. Recently I joined a sci-fi/fantasy book club at work and the first book we’re reading is Brave New World. Oh and I’m also on the Game of Thrones bandwagon – you should probably hop on as well.
Golfing: Even though I’m not great at it I always enjoy going out for a round of golf with my Dad.
Photography: I love taking pictures of people and whenever my friends and I go for adventures I’m alway the one with a camera.
Soccer: I’ve been playing soccer since I was 4, so its always been a big part of my life.

That’s all I can think of right now, but I’m sure I’ll post a part II soon enough.

Big thanks to Carly for taking all these lovely pictures! Be sure to check out her blog Style Snapshot.

Lots of love,

I got this dress from a local shop here in Victoria and it was 50% off. My Mom and I had just been to the grocery store to buy salmon, popsicles and other perishable foods when she decided she wanted a bottle of wine. As we were walking to the liquour store I decided to pop into True Boutique. It was lucky I did because I found this wonderful dress and a couple other tops. Needless to say the popsicles were a bit melted when we got home, but the salmon was fine.

I decided to fancy up my dress by wearing heels, a blazer and red lipstick. I’m not used to wearing lipstick, so it got everywhere. Occasionally I would look at my fingers, see it smeared there, and panic. I don’t think I got any on my clothes, but I managed to get it all over my teeth.

Carly and I ventured to Fisherman’s Wharf to take these photos in the wind and sun. She had a constant battle with the wind, her hair, and lip gloss, so I was glad I wore my hair up. I imagine I would have little lines of lipstick all over my face!

Lots of love,

Kate
