Cosmic Love

There's nothing like slipping into a pencil skirt to make you feel all business-y, powerful and feminine; Just the feelings I needed to evoke to get through my To Do list today. Since I don't work in a standard office (and because the sun is actually shining!) I also wore my slinky taupe tank and my favorite scarf to keep my wayward fringe out of my eyes. 

I'm such a good little gardener! (*sarcasm*)

Lovely: Summer officially starting and feeling that giddy sense of anticipation for all the fun to begin! Bring on the picnics, BBQs, lake days, hammock cat-naps, smores, strawberry picking and Popsicles!

I'm heading to Montreal this weekend (I know!) and would love any shopping tips that you have. It's my first time there and would appreciate any help for must-see stores/ attractions! Thanks Lovelies!
