Happy Saturday!
I stalked this J.Crew dress online for quite awhile. When it finally came on sale, I quickly snatched it up.  Not only has it been in heavy rotation as part of my work wardrobe, but it can easily be worn for more casual pursuits.  It’s one of those great flexible pieces that can be dressed up or dressed down.  Definitely a worthwhile purchase. 
In an effort to simply my wardrobe, I have recently been on the lookout for items that can pull double-duty.  I would love to hear about your favorite high-rotation purchases :)

As someone who doesn’t particularly like wearing the color red (I think it makes my face look too flush), I am always perplexed about what to wear on Canada Day (July 1).  This year I opted for a white dress with a reddish purse & I am quite happy with the results :)

I have spent the last week feeling guilty about not updating the blog, so last night I finally managed to take a few quick pictures in the backyard.  As you can see, I am still side-lined due to my ankle sprain…2+ weeks and counting…  That being said, I am acutely aware that there are far worse things than a sprain and crutches, so I am trying to count my blessings and take this all in stride. 

I have been making a conscious effort to try and hide my leg/ankle as much as possible (despite the racing-stripe tape job, I highly doubt anyone wants to see my swollen and bruised leg).  Maxi skirts and loose linen pants have been in high rotation.
