Cool it: Utility-style jumpsuit, double-wrap rope belt, and strappy nude sandals

Wow!!  Summer – with some truly tropical temperatures! – is certainly in full swing here in Vancouver!!  I always look so forward to this time of year…but my husband?!  Not so much!!

And since I’ve grown tired of living with the grouchy grizzly bear that’s replaced the normally good-natured man that I married, I’ve finally capitulated; we are getting an air conditioner delivered next Tuesday.

I’m the kind of girl who’d choose to be warm rather than cold any day of the week; plus, all that recycled and artificially cooled air doesn’t strike me as particularly healthy either.  But hubby works from home (and out of a tiny, closet-turned-office to boot!) so I guess it was an inevitable addition to our appliance line-up.

Maybe a break from the heat will help our little Wolfie feel better, too; he’s still not eating on his own…and I’m once again worried and losing sleep.  A change in luck is definitely overdue!!

 P.S.  Happy Canada Day!!  If you’re enjoying some mid-week time off, have fun!!

      A jumpsuit like this is just the ticket for those "tomboy" moods, dearest Kelsey and Kenecha!! But I always love to include a feminine element to balance out the more "masculine" vibes…which is where those strappy heels come in!! P.S. I'm happy to report that Wolfie seems to be feeling a bit stronger every day!! XOXO

    Dear Monika,
    happy Canada Day… I think I'm too late with my wish… but it comes from my heart – even if its late. I feel like you… I love these hot summer days and I'm really happy that we have round about 30 degrees celsius today… also I understand your hubby and I think buying an aircondition was a good idea… πŸ™‚
    Love your jumpsuit… it's the perfect clothes for hot weather… enjoy your time, dearest Monika…
    Greetings from Munich… Conny
