Woman at Work



Cardigan & Top – UO  //  Pants – Free People  //  Boots – Locale //  Scarf – SheInside

This day I was on my way to assist at a shoot all day.  So the mantra of the day was comfortable, movable *to lift and adjust gear etc* and no jewelry *you don’t want it getting caught on some lever*

Since I couldn’t use accessories to brighten my wardrobe, I went for what Andrew calls ‘loud’ pants.  I love a good paisley.  Much more so than a floral, and this grey and cream pant was perfect.  They’re a bit big *they were on sale and the size left was a touch bigger than mine* so once I break them in it’ll need a good belt, but I kind of like the baggy boyfriend cord look once in a while.

I Tried Not To Laugh

My girl wanted to stand beside me.  She was very whiny *she’s still fighting this horrible cold, by the way* and just wanted to be next to me, but also did not want Daddy to take photos of her.  Oh the dilemma!  

Though I felt bad for her feeling poopy, and I want to take her seriously, I couldn’t help but laugh; her pouty face is just hilarious.  Trying to keep a straight face when she’s got her brows furrowed, her bottom lip sticking out, and her thumb in her mouth is really hard.   I mean scaling-mount-Everest hard.

Side note, my shirt says “Weekend Uniform” and that’s pretty much what it is to me.  Hat, kimono, loose tee, jeans, and boots.  Yup, that’s about my casual day in a nutshell. Though, to be fair, most days are casual days so…

When You Gotta Run Around

Before heading out to a cottage for a few days, there are quite a few things that need to get done.  Errands, little details you forgot, etc. etc.  What better thing for running errands than an incredibly soft tank dress that keeps you cool and relaxed the whole time?  I certainly couldn’t think of anything at the time.

A Necessary Barrier From the World

Our city is going crazy.  Our current mayor *Rob Ford – google him…no seriously, do it. You’ll see what I mean* is making Toronto a laughing stock.  Seriously, I don’t know how he’s still in office. 

On these jaded and cynical days, I end up reaching for soft, loose, and chunky things.  Perhaps I’m unconsciously trying to create a protective barrier between myself and those things that have me feeling like our world is going down the crapper. 
Perhaps, it’s not so unconscious. 

This tank from Love Nail Tree also fits.  The design is a commentary on the American dream – the perversion and decay of it more accurately.   So perhaps, while I reach for a protective barrier, I also can not quiet the instinct in me to not go quietly into that gentle night, if only through the use of a wise graphic tee. 

What Rules?! Thursdays

Dress – Moon Collection  //  Shirt – Love Nail Tree  //  Sweater – made by my Babcia  //  Scarf – Kensie  //  Boots – Feet First  //  Tights – Hansel from Basel

Today’s rule to break is “No white after labor day.”  It’s an antiquated rule anyway, and I think most would agree it no longer applies.  So I thought a nice easy rule would be perfect to ease us out of the gate.  Next week we’re breaking the “No red lipstick during the day” rule.  I wanna see all your  pretty pouts.

Now today, let’s see how fabulous all you rebels are.

Link up your outfit post, Twitter picture, Instagram picture, Facebook photo, whatever link showcasing your rebellious style.   All I ask is that you grab a button or add a text link back.

Weapon of Women’s Story

I love the philosophy of Love Nail Tree:  the mission to tell stories that are neglected.  It makes me think of the quote that says *I’m paraphrasing as I don’t recall the exact words* if you want to tell original stories, tell stories about women because they’re never written.   So I thought it was appropriate that I wore this dress, which has a piano and says ‘Weapon of Story,’ to the set of Synchronicity.  It’s the soft sci-fi feature film I’m producing featuring a mostly female cast, and a female lead.
