HAPPY MONDAY: STRIPES

I love simple dresses like these. Not much thinking, throw them on and you’re good to go. I’m going to have to post about my addiction to vintage Coach bags very soon. I realize that it doesn’t matter what other bags I pick up, I only wanna rock these old things. And considering that you can grab most of them for 30 – 40 bucks from Ebay, Etsy or flea markets, it’s a no brainer.
Anyways, these pics were actually taken last weekend (arrived home from Montreal much too late to load pics) when I was headed to brunch with some of my law school classmates. All lovely ladies doing amazing things, inspiring me to work harder, dream bigger. It’s not always easy to get together but definitely worth it. I’ll just give a quick mention to Sacha Thompson and the amazing work she does with The Water Collective; a not-for profit working to secure life-lasting clean water through robust solutions and economic empowerment in Sub-Saharan Africa. Read more about them here.

Hope you all had a fun weekend and are ready to get things started.

    Cyn,

    Glowing skin coupled with a beautiful smile, the hair is absolutely stunning! I think you did a good job with the nails something am working diligently on and this is with no design!

    P.S. It seems I am determined to deplete my bank account to the ever fantastic world of Etsy 😀 how do you deal with your addiction?

    Cheers,

    The dress and sandals are super cute, and your jewelry is lovely. I can't believe that necklace was only six bucks!
