Latest Outfit: Florals and YSL

J. Crew shirt, necklace (c/o), belt, and wedges | Topshop skirt | Saint Laurent 'Belle de Jour' clutch | Lipstick: Make Up For Ever Aqua Rouge #16

Another J. Crew-heavy outfit. Please excuse the broken doll pose, the burn on my right hand (grazed the oven rack while taking ribs out, ouch!), and the dishevelled hair. Despite the photographic evidence to the contrary, I was actually trying my best to look nice last Friday evening when the boy and I went to his favourite musical Les Miserables. For the occasion, I paired my favourite new floral skirt with the YSL clutch I bought while in Portland.

Aside from using my fancy new clutch for the first time and seeing an incredible live performance of Les Mis, the day was special for another reason. Last Friday was also when my second promotion this year became official. Between the conversations happening since I returned from Portland and the ramp-up I'm starting on top of my current workload, the last two weeks have passed by in a blur. Sometimes I feel like nothing has changed, while other times—particularly when I'm watching videos and reading books about leadership—I'm thrilled and maybe just a little bit daunted by what lies ahead.

In the meantime, it's Canada Day long weekend! I'm looking forward to some fantastic weather and relaxing times. Hope your weekend holds the same for you!

P.S. If you're a blonde, have you entered my John Frieda giveaway for $150 worth of haircare customized for your hair?

P.P.S. Last chance to enjoy Google Reader this weekend. From now on, you can follow updates on Bloglovin', Feedly, and other RSS readers.
