Jules-in-Flats-July-Outfits


Hi everyone!  How are you??

This has been an exciting week for us, we finally put our apartment on the market and the first open houses are this weekend!  As you may know, we did a kitchen reno before listing.  Some of you asked to see before and after pics, so if you're interested I've put them in my Instagram Story Highlights, along with all of the real estate listing photos.

To balance out the fact that last week I didn't shop at all, this week I placed an order from Gap/Old Navy and Forever 21, and my H&M order arrived!  I haven't tried on my H&M purchases yet, except for the shoes.  Two pairs (these and these) ended up being too big, so I've ordered them in a size down, and the sandals I haven't quite decided on.  I tried them on at work when they arrived but there's no full-length mirror there so I couldn't really see what they looked like! LOL

From Gap and Old Navy I ordered a bunch of tops to try (this eyelet blouse, this striped top, this boho top and this striped tunic), as well as a pair of dark denim shorts.  From Forever 21 I ordered this striped midi shirt dress and these earrings, which I'm hoping to wear to my bestie's wedding next weekend with this dress!

Since we can't be home during the open houses this weekend, we've been spending the afternoons at the beach!  Well, yesterday I went to yoga and then the beach and T went to a friend's house to play boardgames.  Afterwards, he picked me up and we went for dinner on a patio.  The weather has been so good so it's perfect!  Today we are going to go to an open house and then maybe brunch or lunch, then the beach again!  I LOVE being in the sun, whenever it's sunny I just want to be outside!  And it's funny it's totally hereditary - my parents (mum in particular) is just like me, and so are my brother and sister - we just can't get enough!  LOL I think being from an island definitely instilled that in us, along with our love of the water.  And I'm sure it's helpful that we don't burn easily either!

Anyways, wherever you are and whatever you're up to this weekend, I hope it's great!

Thank you all so much for visiting!

Jules-in-Flats-July-Outfits


Hi everyone!  Here's a look at what I wore to work last week.

Did you all have a good holiday week?  I lot of the bloggers I follow are American, and many of them said the week felt so weird with the holiday right in the middle!  For my fellow Canadians, wasn't it nice having a long weekend and a short week?!  The best.

I decided to keep the patriotism going on Tuesday with my sleeveless cream tunic and red pants.  They just happened to be next in the rotation, so it worked out perfectly!  (All of my coloured and patterned pants are stacked in a pile on one of my closet shelves.  Each time I wear a pair, they go to the bottom of the stack, so the pair on top is next in the rotation!  This ensures I don't over-wear any particular pair, and also cuts down on the decision-making in the morning!)

"Dunkirk" Vest by Wilfred (from Aritzia, sold out, similar)
"Rodney" D'Orsay Flats by Sam Edelman


The fuschia midi shirtdress is a Banana Republic Factory find.  It was such a good deal I knew I had to buy it, even if I only wore it once or twice per summer.  It's lightweight, has pockets, is professional enough for work and is my favourite colour, so what's not to love?!  lol

The weather has been cold in the morning, warming up quite a bit in the afternoons, meanwhile AC blasting inside, so I've been trying to dress in layers.  My third outfit with the cardigan is atop a very cute heart-print top; it's almost like a high-neck camisole.  It's made of poly, so it's super lightweight, and looks great with jeans too for a night out or something like that.  I don't feel super comfortable wearing it on it's own at work, but with a layer I think it's totally appropriate.

You'll notice I switched things around in the last outfit!  We're listing our place for sale (it should be up tomorrow actually!!), and realized for the pictures it would look better if our BBQ was on the other end of the balcony (where I normally stand for pics), so now I'm on the opposite side!

I didn't do any shopping this week, which I am totally shocked by.  I thought the Canada Day/July 4th deals would be too good to pass up, but I just didn't find anything I had to buy.  Although, saying that, I checked out Old Navy's new arrivals yesterday because I haven't bought anything from them for awhile, and how cute is this striped one-piece?!  I also really want this jumpsuit to pop back up in my size, and am on the lookout for a good pair of dark denim shorts.  If you have any recommendations in that area, please let me know!!
