Shorts? Thrifted Silk shirt? Thrifted Sandals? Asos Bag? Russell Gibbs (bought at White Elephant
Hat? h&m Watch? c/o Daniel Wellington (here) Canada bracelet? Gift from Merl... in Chicago

We took these pictures in the back yard before I went out to get some stuff done...

*Back yard side note... I was wrong, Matt. As much as I do believe that there are other house projects that need to be prioritized, it is really nice to no longer have a backyard full of construction junk. It is now graded and full of luscious, fresh sod and the neighbours are all duly impressed. I am too...

We are taking pictures and Matt asks if I have the apple* as a prop. Because blog life has integrated itself so far into our lives that an apple can't possibly be a snack but is probably a prop for the William Tell themed high fashion shoot we have going on in our freshly sodded back yard... Or maybe we are re-enacting Snow White in a fashion blogger kinda way.
But most likely it's just the snack I grabbed as I ran out of the house. And then started to eat while we were taking pictures.
Matt may be on to something though; look for apples to take the place of giant Starbucks cups on fashion blogs everywhere. Or to add that needed 'pop of colour'. Apples aren't just nutrients any more. But we already knew that from fairy tales...


*worst part is that I was really excited for that apple and it was really disappointing. Why you let me down red delicious?

I love those shorts! They are not so 'these days'they are long enough to not show half of your ass! And I like that color too. :) But mostly I just fell in love with that bag... 8))

Those apples should be called Red Gross, but they certainly do make great colo(u)r pops! I fully support replacing starbucks cups with apples or with local coffee cups. And your maple leaf bracelet is terrific.

I think you're going to start the apple prop trend ;)

I'm not a fan of red delicious, I'm a Gala girl. But Gala doesn't have that red pop of color. I do like the trend of replacing Starbucks with an apple. I'll have to copy you.

You're a funny writer. Love this piece that you wrote.

And, it's Snow White who bit the poisonous red apple and fell asleep. oh biggie. Sleeping Beauty pricked her finger on a spindle. But the effect is the same, sleeping until a prince comes with true love's kiss.

Van Nguyen- Dang.. I can't believe I screwed up my fairy tales. I'll fix it:) Thanks...

This is the perfect outfit for errands, and apple eating. I need this entire outfit for our next roadtrip.

That bag is on my wish list. I saw someone with the same one at the One of a Kind Show back in December... Love it.

Apples instead of Starbucks cups. Soon we'll all be instagramming apples with our names written on them, like the Starbucks takeaway cups.

Hey, Ontario is finally in summer mode! I love the color of your shirt. And the hat. I can't wear hats, my head gets too warm.

I posted pictures of my new kitten, he is so cute even my husband is melting all over the place!

amanda said...

love the yellow shirt and nice hat! I use fruit as props in interior shoots all the time. This means loitering in the produce aisle searching for the most photogenic specimens, which makes me look fairly deranged.

ANYWAY, this is summery and lovely and bad apples suck ;)
