casual funk

This week has been unseasonably chilly and it most definitely caught me off guard. Considering last weeks posts had me blabbing on about the hot temperatures we have been experiencing here in Montreal. With this said, I am not going to reflect on the negative but think about the positive; the upcoming warm temperatures this weekend.

Having fun with my style on the weekend is something I look forward to and when the sun is out and the weather is hot I feel even more open to explore my style. Playing around with outfit ideas for the upcoming week and my blog posts really ignites a fire within my soul but I know it’s easier said than done. I understand that pairing bold patterns and bright colours doesn’t always file under “comfort zone” for everyone but if you are curious about having fun with some outfits of your own I recommend trying it out with casual weekend fashion first.

As the weekend is quickly rolling in, I’ll leave you with a casual yet funky take on my weekend wear. Funky and bold patterned top, ripped boyfriend jeans and the staple shoe of the season; a white simple white sneaker.

It seems as though summer is really here. The month of May came and went in a flash and the weather has really heated up. Here in Montreal we have already reached temperatures close to 30 degrees celsius numerous times and I have been HOT. Not just the kind of hot that comes and goes but the hot you feel in the middle of summer. The kind of hot where all you want to do is jump in the closest open water source as soon as possible.

I promise you I am NOT complaining… trust me. Let me ask you this… do you agree with me that these are the moments we block out of our memory when we are missing sunny, warm days in the midst of a gloomy winter day. The winter days when we find ourselves struggling to get out of our driveway because the snow is too darn high. I’m sure all you Canadian readers know exactly what I am talking about.

As I envision a moment pretty much exactly as I described is making me laugh out loud to myself. It’s so funny how the human mind works. It is so easy for us to glorify a positive moment in the midst of a crappy one, leading us to wish for that “better” moment to come sooner.  It’s even easier to make it seem as though this glorifying moment trumps anything else when in truth…. does it really?

These are the kind of moments I like to use to reflect on trying to focus on living in the moment. Appreciating every moment for what it is. I think I am truly blessed to be able to experience multiple seasons throughout the year and I am fully enjoying this current summer heat!

What would you prefer? A super hot summers night; sticky and sleepless OR a chilly winters day full of delayed commutes because of the snow?
