Storm trooper: skinny jeans with a knit shrug and peasant-style tank

Whew!!  So glad to be back to some peace and quiet again here in Vancouver after enduring some seriously stormy weather this past Saturday!!

And in yesterday’s aftermath, picking up my husband from the airport – he was returning from a business trip to Calgary – ended up taking rather longer than I had anticipated; I needed about half an hour just to get from our home to the freeway…something that usually takes all of five minutes!!  Needless to say, I was late!!

But since yesterday also happened to be my birthday(!) my hubby seemed happy enough to forgive my tardiness…I even got treated to an extra Starbucks chai latte!!  🙂

    Happy belated birthday, dear Monika! This storm sounds horrible, but I'm glad you weren't affected (that much). I really like your top and your knit bolero is super cute! I can't wait for the weather to get colder so I can start wearing knits!

      I love a good thunderstorm, dearest Anett…but windstorms always scare me a little!! Thank you so much for your birthday wishes; and even though I'm not ready to give up our summer just yet, I know what you mean about looking forward to the expanded fashion options that cooler weather provides!! XOXO

    Happy birthday dearest Monika! I know you're busy with moving tasks, but I hope you got to do something fun … like shopping! 😀 Such a pretty boho halter top and your skin is just glowing. Whatever you're doing , keep doing it! Oh and send some rain to dry California!

    OXOX
