Today was one of the hottest days in the history of Toronto. We broke the record for the hottest July 21st in history and were only a few degrees away from the hottest days in Toronto of all time (40 Degrees, 104 Fahrenheit). I was ceaselessly amused by the comments on twitter and facebook about the weather. I saw more men in skirts than I ever have before…surprisingly a good look for most of them.
Even in the sweltering weather I was defiantly set on putting a nice outfit together, and going out to enjoy the outdoors, play in the park and read on a bench under the shade of a tree. Having spent a year in Australia and some time in Thailand, it didn’t seem THAT hot to me, the wind made it bearable and in the shade it was actually quite lovely. I actually enjoyed the day for the most part. I slapped on a simple yellow empire waist sleeveless dress, one that would fall away from the body and allow the breeze to cool me down. Paired with my favourite teal handcrafted African necklace one of my friends brought me back from Kenya while she was visiting her family. It’s one of my most precious gifts and always a treat to wear with a simple dress to offset the huge necklace. I matched the rest of the accessories with the yellow and teal of the rest of the outfit and created a truly two tonal colour scheme. I love the colours of yellow and teal against my hair red. Really makes it flash!’
