So I'm a little confused by the crazy weather we've been having here. This picture was taken out my parents' window yesterday. It was crazy weather; snowing all day! It's nearly June! I guess that's what makes living in Alberta interesting!

Also, my parents were in Great Falls last weekend and my mom got me a couple new purses I'll show tomarrow. I love presents and my mom said she couldn't decide what colour to get me, so she got both.

It was warmer today and I finally got around to taking an outfit photo. SOrry for the crappy quality, but I was feeling lazy.

Hoodie: Jacob
Jeans: French Connection
Shoes: H&M

Possibly the most adorable sailor suit ever.

I was sorting through my email and while reading my Burda newsletter, I came across the most adorable sailor suit ever. I am completely and totally in love! (Photo from, added by: elegantmusings).

Burberry Prorsum Resort 2011

First of all, I hope everyone had an enjoyable long weekend (I'm not sure which countries had a long weekend, but here in Canada we celebrated Victoria Day on Monday). Mine was good for the most part, with horseback riding, visiting my brother who I haven't seen in months and hanging out with friends. Unfortunately, it ended unpleasantly with a trip to the emergeny room (my bf broke his foot playing frisbee). Hope everyone's weekend was lovely (and perhaps a bit less eventful than mine).

Second, I wanted to talk about the Burberry Prorsum resort 2011 collection. I'm a big fan of Burberry Prorsum (what can I say, I love trenches). There were some absolutely gorgeous pieces shown in the resort collection, including dresses, tops and coats. However, my only complaint was that it didn't feel very 'resort' to me. Resort is something I feel should be perfect for wearing on holiday, but these pieces would feel more an home in my fall wardrobe. What do you think? Are seasons just words used to organized collections or should a collection be designed with a season and/or destination in mind? (Photos from

Does anyone else wish they still had their overalls from about 10 years ago. Looking at this shot from, I know I do! I've only seen one pair in stores lately though, so any ideas on where to find them?

I was a big overall wearer when I was younger. When I was really small, my mom dressed me in Oshkosh and when I was a bit older I wore overall shorts all the time. Perhaps my next sewing project?

And I know I promised an outfir post, but the photos didn't turn out. Sometime this weekend though!

May Fashion Contest and Maybelline EyeStudio survey

Hey everyone. Just a quick post today (don't worry, I'm planning an outfit post for tomarrow). First of all, because it's been slow getting going with my lack of posting earlier this month, I've decided to cancel the May Fashion Contest. I'll let you know about one for June.

Second, I'd really appreciate if you could fill out this survey about my Maybelline EyeStudio make up posts here, here and here. For every complete survey, they will dontae $2 to the Redwood, which is a family support shelter. Thanks!

Christian Dior Resort 2011

If you're a follower of the blog, you know that Christian Dior is one of my favourite labels. That said, I was not entirely impressed with the resort 2011 collection. I felt it lacked the magic of previous Christian Dior shows. Maybe that has something to do with it being a resort collection, with less critique from large publications, but I was still a bit disappointed. While I was not thrilled with the show, there were still some pieces I'm in love with. I love the candy coloured gowns and I absolutely adore the striped top and skirt. What do you think?

Robin Hood premiere

I completely loved these red carpet dresses from the Robin Hood premiere at Cannes. Kate Beckinsale and Eva Longoria Parker look great, but I think Cate Blanchett looks absolutely stunning in this Alexander McQueen. Who's your pick? (Photos from

Chanel resort

So I wanted a do a quick review of the Chanel resort collection. To be honest, I wasn't overly impressed with the collection. I felt it had too many things going on, from caftans to crop tops to safari outfits. That said, Lagerfeld did put out some very pretty pieces. I'm completely in love with the plaid top. Definitely wishing that would appear in my closet! (Photos from

Also, I just wanted to let everyone know that in light of me moving and being super disorganized this month, I'll be giving until May 20th to enter my May fashion competition. Good luck!
