It is Saturday July 14th. Which means it is Bastille Day!
I am so excited about my upcoming trip to France, especially to Paris, since it will be my first time in the latter. I imagine that Bastille Day in Paris is something else. I am currently reading "Les Miserables" in advance of my trip and really enjoying it. I also recently reread "A Tale of Two Cities", which I found surprisingly moving. Cannot wait for the movie of Les Miserables this Christmas - but that will be a post for another day!
I also see that Google is acknowledging what would have been Gustav Klimt's 150th birthday today:
I am always been a fan of his work. My favourite is the painting below; it reminds me of those colouring kits you got as a kid that had all kinds of nooks and crannies to colour in!

It is Saturday and it is HOT! It was 80 degrees at 8 am, which for Atlantic Canada is sweltering!
So I went simple today, a little Joe Fresh white shift, aldo sandals and Banana Republic beads:
This is a comfortable shift. And I paid all of $29 CDN for it.
The necklace has been a conundrum for me. I bought it on sale about a month ago, but never seem to wear it. The necklines always seem wrong for wearing it or some such thing. However, I like it with the white shift and I think I may be better able to incorporate it into other outfits now. The sandals are from Aldo:
They are very comfortable and you can buy them here. I got mine on sale at the local store. They were my cheap version of these sandals from J Crew and they do look suede:
These were bought as I was trying to recreate this look from the recent J Crew Bali catalogue:
I recreated this on the cheap, with the jackie version of the cardigan and the aldo shoes. Will try and get a picture of that this weekend! Unfortunately, no bubble necklace for me, although I have enjoyed the discussion over at the Mothership this weekend on the subject of bubble necklaces!
I hope you all have a lovely Saturday - stay cool, except for Tabitha, who I hope gets some well-deserved heat!!!
