How was your weekend? This weekend was quite busy with the Calgary Stampede starting. I spent the weekend juggling work and going out since we had a friend staying with us for a couple of days. It's crazy how much busier the city gets when the stampede is in town! I love the constant movement.. it reminds me of Toronto on a regular day.
I wore this outfit to a pre-stampede cocktail party hosted by Nordstrom last week. It was a ton of fun since it was by a pool and the weather was surprisingly perfect. It's so exciting that Calgary will be the first city in Canada to have a Nordstrom which is opening on September 19th. I can't wait to see the finished store... she will be a beaut!
As exciting as the event was, It was a huge dilemma for me to think about what to wear to an outdoor cocktail party. Whenever I think about going to parties I always think a dress is an absolute must. This time I wanted to do something a little different and went with a full skirt and top! Still appropriate and super cute for Summer!
ps. The winner of the Old Navy contest goes to the lovely Annick of Bold Subtlety! Congratulations! Stay tuned tomorrow for another exciting contest..
