Coffee is always a good idea

'Afternoon sun' dress: c/o Dissh
Khaki jacket: Lookbookstore
Backpack: Glassons
bicycle necklace: boutique store
watch: c/o Daniel Wellington

It was such a nice sunny day when we took these photos, and I feel like this trench coat (which I have in khaki and light blue in my previous post here) is the only outerwear I can wear these days! I need to invest in more lightweight layers, because you can feel like you're in a bit of a style rut during hot weather when it's all about keeping things as minimal and practical as possible.

There is always a soft spot in my heart for anything floral, and this dress from Dissh was too cute to pass up! It's lightweight and airy enough for warm weather but the earthy brick tones make it suitable for autumn and cooler days as well.

We took these photos back in late December, in that weird time frame between Christmas and New Year's and you're not quite sure what you're doing with your life nor what day it is. It all just seemed like one big continous buffet that went on for a week, and you know the mirror is going to judge you heavily for it when it's all over. It was really nice however to just relax and take each day as it came. My boyfriend and I had a casual day of getting coffee and going grocery shopping to cook a bunch of meals together. I felt like I really got a chance to amp up my cooking prowess these holidays, cooking everything from chorizo hotpots to chicken gnocchi to what seemed like a thousand batch of brownies. I felt like this holiday gone past was a perfect balance of relaxing, as well as being productive and progressive, just how it should be! :)

  26. I'm so jealous that there's no snow where you are! Especially because at the time that you took these we were having lots of snowstorms (I'm not a true Canadian.) That outfit is so cute- I really love the floral print and I have to agree that there's just something about them that's so timeless.
    I disagree with the title- only because I'm a tea lover ;)
