Summer Escape

Besides working on renovations this weekend, one of girlfriends took me to a Theatre Sports comedy improv show on Granville Island. This was my first show, so I really did not know what to expect, but I have to say I was rather impressed. By the end of the show my cheekbones hurt so much from laughing so hard! I definitely needed that. Have any of you been to a comedy improv show? What did you think because I highly recommend going to one. 


For this outfit I wanted to create a fun, fresh summer date look, which I've been so excited to share with you all. I have a few different pencil skirts, but nothing as vibrant as this one, as I've always purchased more neutral tones for work. However, I wanted to get a pencil skirt that I could wear outside the office. What I love most about this skirt is the variety of different color accessories I can see myself wearing with it. 



I paired this pencil skirt with a white lightweight knitted crop top, nude heels, a cobalt blue clutch/wallet, and these stunning blue and gold earrings. I picked this particular size of earring because I wasn't planning on wearing brackets or a necklace. I recommend that when you're wearing earrings this size to keep your other pieces of jewellery fairly simple. A pair of gold bangles would work beautifully with this outfit. Sometimes less is more!





I'm also a huge fan of high waisted pencil skirts, but I usually see them with a blouse or a tight top. I do however love the idea of pairing a loose fitting crop top with a high waisted skirt. I find that it creates a rather elegant look. I have to say this is one of my new outfit favourites for summer. 



Oh and to add to this amazing look, this clutch/wallet from Aldo is on sale right now for $11.98 CDN. They also have a variety of different colours to choose from that would work beautifully with this skirt. Happy shopping! 


Stay blissful :-)

  9. You look like a real life doll in these photos! Gorgeous!!! I really like this floral pencil skirt because it is so versatile like you said. These shoes are super cute and these earrings are so pretty! You did such a great job pairing everything up. It sounds like you had a great time at the comedy show. I'm glad you got a good laugh there. Sometimes comics can be hit or miss.

    1. Joanna you're a sweetheart! I'm really glad you liked this look - it would look very beautiful on you:-). I've seen you in a few pencil skirts and you wear them very well. In regards to the comedy show I'm really glad I went also as I've never been to one before, sometimes it's good to go outside your comfort zone. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  15. I love the concept of a comedy improv show, however I cringe really, really badly at just about everything and so I don't think I could handle the suspense of someone going wrong haha! On a brighter note, you look absolutely beautiful (as always!) and those nude heels are so gorgeous. This is a really cute look and I love how the top goes up slightly at the front, it draws the eyes to the pattern of the skirt! :)

    1. I really did not know what to expect from the comedy improv show to be honest. My girlfriend just randomly got tickets and said ok we are going.. I was a bit nervous actually. She said that she got tickets that were't right up front so that they wouldn't pull us from the crowd, which I'm glad she did. I did not want to go up there!


      And you're too sweet Gabrielle! Glad you liked the look, I'm excited to wear this skirt more this summer:-) Have a great weekend!
