The Blues & The Browns

I had the best weekend. 

In the spirit of time sensitivity, I'll share with you my Facebook status from yesterday, which is kind of telling in itself, since I hardly ever make statuses on that social media platform. "Sometimes you wander 4 hours into Quebec wilderness on your own for a wedding, run through a field with sparklers, cheers to fireworks, drink beers from a can, dance to a live country band, eat three pieces of cake, sleep under the most beautiful stars you've ever seen, and have just the very best time.".  Unmentioned too is the early morning coffee I drank on a deck overlooking a river valley, the solo woods walk I took with a pup, and the delicious yet disgusting poutine I ate before leaving the province. 

I've had an up & down Summer, and there have been some recent moments of ickiness. But then I remembered & recounted it: my life is really not all that hard. At all. I have it swell. I am alive, for frig sakes. I am the luckiest. 

So what's next? Getting back on track with eating, editing photos of all the beauty lately, digging into hot yoga, reading more & internetting less, launching a street style blog, and getting some at-home things done before my next wedding (at home!) in oh, 18 days. 

Oh, and this outfit? Worn to another wedding earlier in the Summer, where I took the photos. I picked it up it for its longer length (never good to flash the groom), and have found it fit into my wardrobe just wonderfully these past few weeks. It often gets action with this blazer for work, and it paired well with this hat for a boating trip. 

To note: I think it's finally time I do something with this mop of mine. I don't dye it anymore, but past dye jobs + summer times have made its colour pretty uneven & crazy. That said, I have no idea what to do. I don't really want to take on dye jobs again.. but what's a girl to do?
