Can we skip spring and go straight to summer?

So with all these lovely Coachella festival pics going around as well as the lineup for Osheaga announced it's got me thinking... about summer, about sandals, about sunglasses!

Anyway, here are a few of my favourites styles. The white dress, long and short.

Obviously shorts, casual or ladylike.

And maxi skirt and cute boy.

I don't know where I'll be taking inspiration yet, but I definitely will be avoiding sandals since Parc Jean Drapeau is a sandy dusty dirty mess! I say it every year and last year still was tempted into wearing a open weave skimmer... not so great!

I'm excited to see Death Cab, Death from Above, Karkwa and Malajube, you?

Miscellaneous outfits and a recipe

Yes I have been neglecting in a major way, but now that the weather is getting better and I can have my pick of footwear, I will be much more motivated to put together cute outfits to show you! Also, since I am on a shopping ban, you can actually see what is IN my closet!

Just to whet your appetite, here is my outfit for sugaring off. We chose this lovely cabane à sucre which was wonderfully quaint, baked it's own bread as well as sugar pies and had a cute mini village.


Coat Michael by Michael Kors; shirt J. Crew; jeans Rock&Republic; hubby's belt Club Monaco; boots Winners; mittens and purse FCUK.

Also, I got around to wearing one of my recent purchases and here was the result. Forgive the awkward pose and dorky smile.


Top Gap; skirt Gap; necklace Banana Republic; shoes Zara.

And last night we had an amazing steak dinner (thanks Cosco!) and my scalloped potatoes came out perfect so I thought I'd share.


Thanks Em('s mom) for sharing this recipe (link is above). I made a 'low fat' version by substituting 5% light cream (the mixture of heavy cream and milk would be like using American half and half or 18%) and I topped with some cheese instead of butter.
