School is out – bring on the summer! How is it that this feeling of summertime rush and joy when school is out, just never gets old? I’ve had it since I was a little girl and every summer it always comes back. Maybe it’s because I’m a teacher, so I keep reliving it lol!
Here’s my teacher-is-out-for-the-summer look. Don’t you find these large black frames are so nerdy-good?!
I feel totally Guccified in this amazing jacket by La Retro Girl. I layered it over this gingham fave dress of mine.
I also love that these red/black/white polka-dotted sandals I wear on the repeat are just so on point with this flippin’ outfit.
Let’s not forget jewelry!
Everything about this look is about fun and no rules (just like end of school!), when it comes to print mixing. Of course we can’t forget about the jewelry- so here’s a fun red-gemstone necklace I just re-found in my stash- and my topaz lucky charm ring. I’ll always love these pieces!
I am So ready for summer fun…Maybe it’s not only because school is out though…
Maybe it’s because I’m a Leo girl and birthday season is almost here? Yay!
In our big fat family, we celebrate lots of birthdays during summer! Last week our first one was my grandson James’ birthday!
In first photo, from the left: my grandsons James, Zach, and my youngest daughter, Sophia (you can see my eldest daughter Maria, James’ mom, in the corner left!). And that’s my handsome hubby jumping in for a quick photo as my grandchildren are totally absorbed by that cake lol!!
Another great thing about summer is how this is also a preferred time to travel. And after two hard years and more of a pandemic- we can finally get out there and visit the people we want to see! I haven’t traveled yet for the summer- but I was so happy that for my first time, an Insta friend of mine decided to visit Montreal!
Anna of Annazzon and I met two years ago on Instagram- we both share a love of vintage. We chatted over crepes and coffee and time flew by too fast. We will have to do this again soon!
And finally also had a chance to get together with my brother for some good old family catch up. It was great! I can’t get over how much he’s looking more and more like my dad…(happy sigh).
On that note: In JULY, this Montreal Styling Diva will be taking a much needed summer break. We’re not there yet- but I wanted to give you a heads-up if you notice that I don’t comment or post all of a sudden! Though, I will be posting one prescheduled post for the Thrifty Six- so look out for that one:) But I’m still here for June! My last post will be on June 24th as a reminder.
So let’s get right into our Linkup Party!
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
