Inspiring Nostalgia

personal musings of a native Torontonian, currently living in Philadelphia. she predicts she will turn into Emily Gilmore when she gets older.
I own many white dresses (LWD) and no little black dress (LBD). I fully understand the versatility of a good LBD - classic yet individual. But I come from a country where it is winter 8 months of the year and not the pretty Christmas card version of winter and after months of greys and browns, an LBD is no longer appealing. For a brief window of 2 months, my hometown is gloriously beautiful. And so my way of dress wants to reflect all that summer bliss and not to compete with it. And nothing beats a LWD when it comes to celebrating eternal summer - IN

Rainy Wednesday in Toronto so I thought I’d blog one of my favorite swimwear lookbook photos this season.  There is everything to love here: the beach, the waves and white swimwear. The crochet cover-up dress? Perfection in the form of summer knitwear - IN

Because the weather is warming up and because of the general malaise I get with grey skies, I have been ogling summer clothes and getting that itch to travel.  This photo may be old but it evokes that wanderlust I get just before the full force of summer arrives in July - IN

What I like to think I look like when I walk down the street in anything minimalist. I can safely say that I have never quite achieved this but a girl can dream - IN

This may be silly to you 21st Century readers but I actually adhere to the “no white after Labour Day” rule. Can I still wear my Superga sneakers after Labour Day? Maybe not? 
I have no LBDs but I definitely have a LWD which I’ll put on, per tradition, on Friday just to have that essential piece of summer before the unofficial end of summer next Monday - IN

Having been in NYC during this summer’s first heat wave (and consequently, on the first day of summer 2012), this look is so lovely for city living.  I adamantly adhere to the “no white after Labour Day” so while white dresses require careful dining and frequent washing, they are so wonderful during a heat wave. I realize that I’ve been blogging a lot about the heat. It really seems to be all anyone is talking about this summer in North America - IN
