Whether mother nature likes it or not, I’ve gotten my summer wardrobe down from the loft and unpacked all the brights and florals. You know what, I’m gonna wear it if the weather allows or not. Here are a couple of staple items that are getting me summer time ready and I’m hanging on to with dear life.

Floral skirt with matching pastel satchel? Check. My oh my is this satchel a delight. The colour is perfect and there are some other pretty fabulous shades (lilac, pink and yellow, I’m looking at you). The quality is amazing and feels like such a classic; I can see myself using this for years and years to come. Mine is the ‘milkman’ satchel (go and read the back story – it’s wonderful) and the sister to the cuter than cute ‘half pint’. I’m glad I went for this option though, I’m a gal that loves a bag big enough for all my bits and pieces (read: junk), and this does the job perfectly. Nevertheless, I can’t help but swoon at the half pint…

My next wardrobe staple for this year is the cream leather jacket. My trusty black leather sees me through year after year, but this twist and tango cream number is sucha beautiful alternative. I can keep warm and look summery; win! But in all seriousness, this jacket oozes quality and feels ever so luxurious when I’ve got it draping from my shoulders. In fact, it’s one of those pieces that makes me think ‘how did I ever get by before this’? Pop one on your ‘to buy’ list and you won’t regret it, believe me. Now, add a floral crown and a pair of sweedish hasbeens and I’m pretty much good to go. Cold snap, you will not defeat me.

    I so hear you about the weather! We had a bad winter in Toronto this year as well, spring was so unfashionably late, and I’m sick and tired of pants, jeans, boots and winter coats. Now the skirts rule! Thank fully, these days in Toronto have temperatures above zero. And even though it’s still not very warm, but it’s warm enough to wear skirts and dresses.

    Have a great and warm week ahead!

    Xoxo, Victoria

    Not surprised City officials were there to suck up the notoriety when they had nothing to do securing the funds and want nothing to do w/ the on going process. Can’t pass up a great photo opp! To see more info please visit
