In case you haven’t noticed, I do not give up on my black clothes in the summer (seriously, it was 44 degrees when I was in Vegas and I packed nothing but black!).

In other news, I just got back from a 4-day work trip in eastern Canada and I am completely mentally and physically drained. It was the most frustrating and exasperating work-related thing I think I've ever experienced. Not to mention that the trip itself was just a nightmare - one of those things where everything that could go wrong did (I forgot to pack some things I needed, the place I was staying was not pedestrian friendly so even the simple act of trying to find a store to buy my missing toiletries turning in a two hour death march in 30 degree heat, I got caught in a rainstorm and soaked and hadn't packed any extra clothes, the flight home got delayed and I had a lot of anxiety about missing my connector flight, etc, etc). So I will be resolutely taking it easy for the next week!

Oh my God, that sounds like the work trip from hell. You definitely deserve some relaxation this week - and hopefully some cooler weather to go with it ;)

Ugh, so sorry to hear your trip was a nightmare! But at least you made it home, and I hope you savor every moment of your time relaxing.

You need some serious r&r after a hellish trip like that- yikes! Love the all-black, and those sandals are perfect with this look. :)

great post,
happy Friday :)



Oh no, well take it easy on the weekend. Sorry to hear about the trip, but at least it's good to see that you're still faithful in donning your all-black attire. Great outfit. x

Indeed sounds like a horrible trip !
I am just back from a trip where I forgot to take my boots and my blush.. what can I say.
However I treated myself to 2 massages. You can't win them all. Treat yourself to one too.
