No need to adjust your computer screen.  It's true - I'm baring my midriff.  In public...in daylight.  The very last fashion trend in the entire world that I ever thought I'd be able to pull off.  I'm here, my friends, to show you that curvy girls can wear crop tops too.  And it's so darn liberating!  It's like na-na na-na boo-boo to a world that's always told me I can't show my mid section unless it's super model flat or has perfectly sculpted abs.  Ain't nobody got time for that!  I choose to go ahead and rock the crop top look, now who's with me?!

This Saturday is one of the highlights of summer in Vancouver, The Deighton Cup.  Not to get all Julie Andrews on you, but The Deighton Cup just so happens to combine a few of my favourite things.  Dressing up, dressing up in a theme, day drinking, and the possibility of leaving with more money that what you arrived with.  What's not to love about a good ol' fashioned day at the races?!

We had such a blast last year and I've been thinking about outfit ideas ever since. I've teamed up with LOFT to bring you a look that'd be perfect for The Deighton Cup this Saturday.  A feminine dress with a statement hat/fascinator and lots of accessories.  It's simple, elegant, and I adore that this dress can be worn again.  It's all about investing in versatile pieces for the wardrobe.  Looking for more inspiration?  Be sure to check out To Vogue Or Bust and Her Waise Choice to see their beautiful Deighton Cup looks!

Sometimes when I'm not feeling very creative, I rifle through the archives for hints of inspiration.  I realized in my most recent search, that these photos from our last night in Antibes somehow went unpublished.  My hair was a lot shorter (and of course looking at these, I want to chop it off again right now - always happens that way) and my worries were a lot less.  It was July first, so my white and red was a nod to the true north strong and free.  We were bronzed from our day at the beach and buzzed from our pre-dinner cocktails. The sunset was the most perfect swirl of cotton candy pastels and I was in a fit of giggles (you should see the outtakes for this one lol).  This exact juncture didn't feel so significant at the time, but just breathing in the memory, it was such an innocently happy moment.  Makes me want to hop on a plane and jet off to the south of France riiiiight meow.
