I don't match things.  I don't think about does this match per se.  I think does this 'go.'  There's a difference I think.  Matching means the same - it means they are the same.  When I put clothes on I don't think about whether they are the same and therefore matching, I think about do they go together.

Do they bring something out in the other?  Do they create a contrast, a balance, or even spark your interest in the way the patterns, textures, or colors play off of each other?  Mostly, I ask myself do they feel right together?

This is all subconscious - mostly.  For instance, I didn't realize these two pieces even had differing patterns.  They just felt right together.

The Wildflowers Are Dying

The wildflowers are starting to die.  They are drooping and turning that dark shade of brown.  I know this means the end of summer.  The end of that glorious heat which my body craves incessantly.
But I cling to it.
Desperately.
Hoping that enough warm breezes, enough overgrown fields will freeze the moment.  Will keep the seasons from changing, from passing, as they must.

All Hail The Summer! Death to Fall!

Most women I know get all excited as the weather cools a touch and there is the hint of Fall around the corner.  I am not one of those women.

These women look eagerly onto the sweaters and the cute tights that they can soon start to wear with anticipation.  I am not one of those women.

They see scarves and beanies, and squeal with delight.  I am not one of those women.

The hint of Fall that excites many brings sorrow to me.  Perhaps, it's because I have the constitution of a *well, I can't think of anything, but something very easily cold*  And probably because Toronto sees it's fair share *read: exhausting long months* of the cold and Winter.  All that combines to create me:  a woman who longs for every second of summer, who dreams of living in a warmer climate like California, and who wishes that Winter meant a sweater and leather jacket rather than the layers upon layers of thermal, wool, and parka.

That woman, this woman, is decidedly not happy to feel the chill in the air.

I Want Simple

Simple life.  Simple style. Simple schedule.  True, that most of the time I fail to achieve that 'simple' in life.  Most of the time, I'm such an overachiever that I feel miserable if I'm juggling less than three *metaphorical* balls at a time.  Most of the time I can hardly wrap my head around what our week looks like, much less our month.  But I feel that this idea of boho- not the over done, over accessorized, over priced boho - this idea of loose, easy and simple fits with me.  Fits with what I would ideally like to achieve.

A romper, a hat, some booties...and away we go juggling.

Random Sundays: A Day At The Museum

ModaMama
 I've become very aware of the fact that my girl is going to school in just a few short weeks. The days when we're home together and can do anything on our whim are coming to a close.  So I've been trying to do some really fun things with just the two of us.  Dates, as you will.  And just recently we went to the Royal Ontario Museum to check out their wildlife and dinosaur exhibits.

ModaMama
 As soon as we entered she plowed through everything really, really quickly.  And once we reached the end she turned to me and said, "Let's start again!"

So we did and this time we went through slowly, doing all the activities.

 After a few hours, and tons of activities - including a tea party - she was pooped.

But at bedtime she asked, "When can we go see the dinosaurs again Mama?"

Mom Style

What is it?  Really?  To me, mom style is the style of a woman who happens to be a mom.  I know to some it means dowdy, or haphazard.  But I disagree.  How did we women get to be moms?  By being hot, and attractive...because let's think a moment about how one becomes pregnant.  Think on that for a moment.

Now that you've thought about it.

I believe it's a misnomer to think that once one has a child one has to suddenly forget that you have curves and sex appeal.  Yes, there are the pressures of time and the constraints given to thinking about style.  But jeans, a fun top, and great hat would solve any and all such occasional time constraints, would they not?

Those are my two cents for the day.
