I kind of feel like a librarian in this outfit, but that’s ok – librarians are cool. The best librarian I knew was a man who worked at DB Weldon Library at UWO. My friends and I called him “Old Man Beard” – we never knew his real name. If you went to him with a question, he would get so excited and would basically do your entire project for you. This is why we loved Old Man Beard….he was also nice and passionate about his job. We were always psyched to see him working and never wanted to talk to any of the other librarians.
This long cardigan was found at Winners for $29 and I paired it with my grey pants from Zara, brown belt, brown shoes, and a boat load of accessories. I love accessories. These pants are the cropped type so when I sit down I have to make sure I have cool socks on because the socks show. This grey and white striped pair is from Joe Fresh. I bought a pack of 5 for $10. Steal! JD
I have had one busy summer. Approximately seven-million wedding invitations (real number is seven) have come my way and all are taking place within three months of each other. Two were this past weekend. The first was for my Western University roommate Liz. She married her macho man Jeff at the Miller Lash House at U of T Scarborough. The grounds were stunning and Liz, being a wedding planner, planned and executed the most beautiful wedding. I wore this dress that I found at The Bay. It was 70% off for $36. My bag is an old sale purchase from Banana Republic, wedges are from Pegabo, and necklace was borrowed from my friend T.
The following day the gorgeous Courtney married her math professor beau at Grace Restaurant on College Street. It was the ultimate city wedding and tres chic. She requested that her closest friends wear white – what a confident bride! I wore this dress that I purchased at Lolita when I was a student in London, ON. Those who went to Western or grew up London know that Lolita is the go to shop on Richmond street. I decided to give the dress a boho look with big gold earrings from Forever 21 ($6) and strappy leather wedges from Aldo ($90). Purse is a Cole Haan sample sale purchase.
Today I am off to Ottawa for another wedding…and no, my dress for this one isn’t floral print. Stay tuned! CM
