I just can't get going with work today - after all, it's the start of the first long weekend of the summer up here in the wild North! Happy Canada Day tomorrow to all of my Canadian friends:)

The temperature dropped dramatically last night , and it's only about 17 or 18C today. I have lots of running around to do and can get away with some layers and coverage while it's cooler. I am super pleased with this new tunic I bought yesterday at UO while festival shopping with DD (ugh) . It's a a sueded silk finish mini dress (as if ) that I discovered I like over these cropped flares from last summer. Also quite liking these new sandals - haha Suz - which I had gone out of my way NOT to buy over the last two years since this style started appearing. The first few I tried on a few years ago didn't fit right, and then they were everywhere . I rebel against things that appear in every store - lol. But they are not all the same across brands, and the fits are very different. I am very particular about peep toe anything - and how toes look poking out . Most of the ones I tried on were way too loose and open, and my toes did weird things. These not only have a higher heel, but they are just the perfect fit - and have a dark cognac wooden heel for some nice contrast. I bought them to wear with the infamous little orphaned grey pants, but see that they'll be getting a lot of wear with other outfits.

The cognac heel triggered the watch and bracelet pair I rarely wear, and the cognac bag I also rarely wear. This all triggered the peach lipstick I picked up recently at the recommendation of my MUA friend. Had my "old" /best hair stylist do some fiddling with my hair yesterday and it is finally feeling better. Still very short and a little spiky ,but as it grows it should start to have more movement.

Thoughts on the tunic/dress over pants look? I know Angie wears it - and this is the second iteration I've worn that I find I really lik. I gave zero thought to proportion here, just winging it. Comments absolutely welcome.
