The weather (dare I say it) has FINALLY started to heat up, and just in time for the long weekend no less. Since temperatures are supposed to be hitting the 20+ mark this weekend we’re taking full advantage and going to have a little al fresco brunch outside on our patio this Sunday. There will be a blog post about it coming up next week (in partnership with PC Home) which I am so excited about, but until then I am going to be taking this Monday off to give myself a little blogging break. I hope you all have an amazing looooong weekend, see you Tuesday.

This week has been pretty crazy to say the least. Between catching up on work, attending events and attempting to unpack and organize the house, I haven’t really been thinking too much about what to wear in between. I’ve been keeping things super simple in the outfit department and wearing some version of the Canadian tuxedo all week. I had a ton of errands to run on Tuesday so this look was great for taking me from the mall to a few fall previews later in the evening. Last night, Jamie and I headed to a Blue Jays game with Samsung and again, I opted for high-waisted skinny jeans, a short sleeve version of a denim button up and of course my trusty baseball hat. The Canadian tuxedo is such a versatile and practical look, especially after being paired with a few unexpected accessories like the scarf and fringe bag shown here, or a Jays cap to keep things casual.
