Hello dahlings, I am off to sunny side Jamaica with my mum for the week and KD from The Girl with the Messy Hair – or [TGWTMH] is guest blogging for me whilst I am gone! KD is a doll and has great-amazingly-romantically-hippy style and I know you all will love her as much as I do. KD and I met via the world wide web when we were both featured as two of the top Canadian Fashion Bloggers, alas – we have become great friends. Now without further ado.

I feel like I should say something like a speech when you’ve won an award after Kendall’s amazing introduction of who I am but that would be saved when we actually get a trophy for being chosen as TOP 15 CANADIAN BLOGGERS…as if that would ever happen. Nonetheless, thank you for the sweet words, K~

Moving along, I’m here to represent the west side cos as what you lovelies have noticed, little miss Kendall Donaldson here and I almost have the same style. These photos although weren’t taken in Calgary were actually taken by my good ol’ reliable tripod while I was on a vacation alone in (still the west side) BC. Obviously, it is still warm in BC even at the end of September and I was able to wear my favorite easy breezy palazzo electric blue pants together with this new but old cape I scored at a thrift store on a early morn shopping trip to the Farmers Market. This amazing tassled necklace is the only fab find I took home but couldn’t be happier about it! It was made from recycled t-shirts by a local designer in Vernon named Shelagh of 2nd Chance and it was a total treat for only $20.

I am now back to freezing Calgary and your warm thoughts about my blog THE GIRL WITH THE MESSY HAIR are always welcome! I am also on FACEBOOK and TWITTER. See you soon, lovelies~
