Yep, the three dreaded words for summer weather in T.O. 36C and humid humid humid, thanks to a roaring thunderstorm that went through at 4:30 a.m. Just a quick post before I live the exact opposite of my official title, that being SAHM!
Outfit: Vogue 2902 in a printed voile with espresso linen trim. Shoes by Remix Vintage Shoes from Original on Queen Street West
Activities: touring a new school for DD2, as she’ll be starting Grade 6 next year; running DD1 to the dentist for her first ever filling and tooth pulling; taxi service for all dear daughters to dance classes
Thoughts: I don’t usually wear this dress with a belt, but maybe I should. I love the big circle skirt. Every time I wear this dress it reminds me of why I like to wear dresses so much. Living in a circle skirt is a lot of fun. I had to grade the bodice down a size, since I’d purchased the wrong size pattern for some reason, and then do the requisite FBA. The waist sits a little above my natural waist, which feels odd – almost as if the vintage undergarments are missing or something along those lines.
