green with excitement

Jacket- Marshalls; Dress- Zara; Hat- Urban Outfitters; Shoes & Ring- Thrifted; Bracelet- Small Boutique in Montreal; Hosiery- Forever 21

I'm leaving envy at the door, today I'm green with excitement because in less than two days I will be lying on a beach in St. Kitts! It's my first all inclusive holiday and I'm slightly concerned that all my healthy living and fitness goals will take a hit from all the buffet style dining and pool-side cocktails.  Ah well it's called a vacation for a reason and if tequila starts seeping through my pores I'll know it's time to cut back!  

In this day and age everyone is so readily accessible by phone, computer, social media and pager (yes I still have one of those) it will be such a treat to have a week free of technology and the shackles of e-mail slavery! It shocks some people that I won't be checking work e-mails during my week off but that wouldn't be a very relaxing vacation now would it?

The thing I'm most excited about is shedding my Canadian spring-time layers and donning light dresses, colourful bathing suits and fun summer hats!


  1. Gorgeous coat. And dress. I love green!

  2. Ohh, your upcoming vacay sounds wonderful!

    Love your green coat, the cut is just beautiful.
    Chic on the Cheap

  3. Love the coat - such a fantastic colour!
    Good for you for completely disconnecting for a week - it really isn't a vacation if you're still checking work emails anyways! Have an amazing time in St. Kitts - you more than deserve it! Can't wait to see pics!

  4. wow, what an incredibly classy look! you remind me of some classy movies where ladies wear stylish hats and stuff like that :P and how awesome is the fact you're going on a vacation! I want it too! :D

  5. wow i am feeling excited for you. Sounds like it's going to be a great vacay. You look beautiful by the way. The green blazer is fabulous...looks great with the chic hat. Every inch of you is oozing with glamour and class. This is definitely one of my favorite outfit of yours!


  6. It sounds like it's going to be a brilliant vacation -- I'm quite envious really. Of that and the coat - wow!

  7. I am so jealous right now! That sounds so fun! I hope you have a fantastic time!

    And I adore your coat! It's a lovely color and it's very flattering on you! And I also love hats, so I love that you're wearing a hat!

  8. I love that hat. Last time I went on vacation, I went to Europe and I could only get work emails if there was wireless. I conveniently avoided all wireless hotspots the entire vacation. Have a great time!

    That green coat is gorgeous!

  10. I love that green jacket, and everything you're wearing. So jealous it's still tights weather for you.

    Enjoy your digital vacay - everyone needs them occasionally.

  11. Best look ever...I'm in LOOOOVE with your 20s-30s vibe...those shoes are just too darling for words, and the hat and green coat add such character! You look straight out of an old movie.

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
