Maxi Fever

Hi everyone,

Happy Monday! Mr.S and I have been in Toronto since last week visiting our favourite restaurants, hanging out with some good friends, and enjoying some quality time with family...

While we were catching up with some good memories in Toronto(a city that has a very special meaning to us), we heard that many places in Calgary were flooded and thousands of people had to leave their homes. The reporter side of me immediately felt like going back to the frontline to cover the story and report to all the audiences. However, we do feel very blessed that we are far away from the flood, and our prayers and hearts are with all the Calgarians whose lives got affected by this situation. 

BUT, What doesn't kill you will make you stronger. I believe going through this nature disaster and rebuilding the city together will make Calgary a more united place more than ever. :)

Oakville is small but very beautiful town near Toronto where Mr.S's family is living and where I went to Journalism school. Re-visiting the place really brought up many good and pleasant memories. 

If someone ask me what is a must-have piece for every Summer, I would say Maxi. Either a maxi dress or Skirt, it's good for different occasions and it's a piece that can just be pulled on and go. The draping and flowy nature of the skirt not only creates a easy breezy feel but also takes the casual look onto a feminine level. 

This nude maxi dress caught my eye right away when I was browsing in H&M. The special cut at the back, the length of the dress, and especially, the price(It was on sale for $30) really made this dress hard to resist.  :)

Thank you so much for reading. Hope you just started an awesome week. Talk to you soon! :)
