To The Max

11.10.10

 



I love maxi skirts and dresses. They're such a welcomed alternative to trousers for me. I found this dress at a vintage shop a few weeks ago. It has a very exposed back, and although it's been quite warm here in Toronto, I still needed a little jumper to top it off so as not to freeze my bones off. 

The past few days have been such a roller-coaster. Days have slowly merged into one, and I'm thankful for yet another long weekend. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone here in Canada.  I've been loading up on fashion television while anticipating the turkey and stuffing that awaits for dinner. I've been thinking about what I'm thankful for, and I find my list to be near infinite. I'm thankful for family, friends, for waking up this morning, for food and shelter...and the list goes on and on. What are you thankful for? 

Wishing you all a lovely week ahead. Stay safe!

Bisous,
Abi

Here in Spain we don't have Thanksgiving, but I think it must be a warm and peaceful day.

Have a nice week.

You look great again :) And I'm totally in to maxi skirts and dresses right now.
And that last photo in black and white looks like something from a fashion magazine!
We don't have Thanksgiving here, though. But I'm thankful for the things you name too.

And as I'm too back in a long skirt mode - I need to find more flowy & light long skirts for my wardrobe! Hate to shop when I know what I'm searching for!

Haha, love that comment that says in the States they just started October! Do they think it's a different month in Canada?! I hope you had a great one... I really hate missing Thanksgiving... it's my favourite holiday!

I love the pattern of this maxi dress! I've come to the conclusion that everything looks amazing on you! Have you ever modelled? You would do so well!! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend, Abi!! :)

Ria said...

Beautiful dress. My original country doesn't really have Thanksgiving so aside from the food the holiday has always been strange to me.

Abi said...

@Emily: Perhaps you could introduce the holiday to the Brits. Might be a tad tough though. hahah!

@Kenziefaith: I'm sure you can! Just need the right silhouette :)

@Lauren thanks so much for following! I'll be sure to stop by you soon :)

@Kara: Haha! Thank you :) I've never modelled

@Ria: It is a pretty obscure holiday isn't it? Not too sure what is represents asides from the fact that it brings family and friends together, which is fine by me!

Emma at Daily Clothes Fix said...

Love your necklace. As for being thankful, my list is similar to yours. I just need to remember it more on bad days.

Marina said...
