Leather Dress | Lace-Up Heels

There's something I love so much about the juxtaposition of a feminine cut dress done in a tough fabric like leather. The weather has been all over the place lately, making getting dressed in the morning a bit of a guessing game. Occasionally I'll walk outside in a scarf and coat, only to have to remove all my layers, and other times I'll venture out in a dress and have to run back in for a sweater. Of course, I could check the weather forecast ahead of time, but where's the fun in that?
On another note, as I'm sure all my fellow Canadians feel, this has been a tough week. What happened in Ottawa on Wednesday morning was shocking and saddening. I still can't quite believe that a violent attack like that took place in such a peaceful nation. Out of a day of chaos, though, comes a feeling of being even more patriotic than I knew I was, and even more bonded to my fellow nationals. I am reminded, especially at a time when there is an important mayoral election in Toronto, and political posturing happening between parties on a Federal level, that despite our differences - politically, religiously, or otherwise - fundamentally, we have more that binds us together than not. My thoughts and prayers are with the family of Cpl. Nathan Cirillo.

    Yes, it's been a tough, tough week. Trying to make sense of it..... I took a look at the victim's Instagram photos, he seemed like such a nice guy who absolutely loved his dogs and family...very sad.
