Transitions

26.8.10






Weather-wise, we are transitioning and I'm loving it....at least for now. Watch me bite my tongue when the heavy snow comes rolling in. Torontonians never seem to have anything positive to say about the weather. It's either too hot, cold, rainy, dry; never just right. Nope, no three little bear story here. To keep cool, I'm wearing zebra print trousers as seen here. I love that they cinch quite nicely at the ankles, while baggy everywhere else.


Victoria's Secret finally debuted in Toronto yesterday.The new shop is a little bit out of the way for me, but maybe I'll take a trip down this weekend. I never truly understood what the hoopla was about Victoria until I took a trip stateside myself. Something about the bright coloured knickers and the mix of floral and vanilla scent in the air just really draws you in. Although, I have always wondered who this lady is, and what her secret is, if any...does anyone know and care to share?!


Bisous,
Abs

loving the shape of your pants, and how you describe it falls, is perfect! the print makes it even more interesting to look at :)

and the weather where i live is pretty weird lately too. one day its insanely hot and another it is insanely cold, i can barely keep up with what it is going to be like next. i just want to be able to wear more fall clothes!

Mmmm, I love the trousers! I was looking for black and white patterned shorts this summer, to no avail. Glad to see someone rocking the look I was imagining!
Love the recipe below too! Chocolate chip cookies are the best, and yes, super easy. Unfortunately I don't trust my oven here, but in my next home... ; )

Have a great weekend yourself!
