Stained Glass

Happiest Friday, bloggers!

Man, am I happy to see the weekend. I don't know about you, but this week has felt painfully slow, and the cold snap of weather in the GTA has been SO not ideal. But come this weekend I have our office Christmas party tomorrow night to dress up for, and I jet off to warmer weather Sunday for a few days.

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll know that I'm absolutely obsessed with Mara Hoffman the designer. (Also pictured wearing Mara in my travel posts from Maui and Kaua'i). Her prints are absolutely one of a kind and instantly recognizable. The clothing, swimwear and handbag line draws much of its inspiration from Mara's personal travels around the world, in particular to indigenous folk art cultures, along with nature and fantasy. Basically, Mara Hoffman represents the life I want to one day experience myself.

I wore this outfit to my sorority semi-formal a few weeks ago. I paired the already very loud-printed dress with a gold tribal fringe necklace from Nastygal and my favourite Sam Edelman Zoe booties. (Links below).

Myself and a few of my Alpha Class sisters at our semi-formal. Cheers!

Wearing: Mara Hoffman "Slit Back" Dress (HUGE discount at Zappos HERE or Revolve HERE), Nastygal "Tribal Fringe" Necklace, Sam Edelman "Zoe" booties.

I hope everyone has an incredible weekend. I'm hoping to finish up all my Christmas shopping to rest easy... but we'll see. I'm a known procrastinator.
