Out of Sync

You guys…this week has kind of sucked.
Just so you know, nothing really bad has actually happened. For the most part, it’s all just been an amalgomation of little things, like having a jackhammer going off right outside my window all night (who sets these freakish work hours?), being unwell, not feeling entirely adjusted to my new time zone, not sleeping at all, my dog having to get a ton of procedures and not being home to see if he’s okay, etc, etc.
Tulle Los Angeles dress, bag c/o Mary Nichols, H&M wedges, ring and necklace
Anyway, I’ve just been feeling a bit down both physically and emotionally – if it seems like I’m taking a little bit of extra time away from the blog this week, that’s why.

Even wearing this pretty dress that I completely forgot I owned until I was packing for TO and spotting that creeper in the third picture of this post didn’t cheer me up! You know you need laughter and chocolate when…

Anyway, I think I just need to put on my happy films (White Chicks, Zoolander, Wayne’s World and She’s the Man on repeat), take some time to do my nails maybe, go for a few more runs…I’ll be all better soon.

I hope you’re all having good weeks so far! x

    I hope your pooch is okay!! That's the worst, when everything seems to be going on all at once, not sleeping definitely makes it worse too.
    I love this dress, it's awesome that you rediscovered it, because it has an amazing print. I love that necklace too! Feel better soon!

    Oooh la la, I adore your dress! Did you get it in Canada or the states? Sorry you're feeling down. I've been having a sh*tty week, too! Maybe's it's something in the Canadian air?? In any case, I'm sure things will turn around for both of us : )

    Hang in there Alex DQ, we all have those weeks and it can't be easy when you're so far from home. I love your list of movies, Zoolander and She's the Man top my list too, along with any Mary-Kate and Ashley movie 🙂 If it's any comfort, you're looking absoutely stunning!! xox ash.bp

    So sorry to hear that you're so down 🙁 It's probably just a case of home-sickness mixed with the time zone change. I'm sure things will look up soon 🙂
    You look amazing in this dress and that creeper is way too funny! Isn't it strange how people will just stand there and stare while you're taking pics? I would never do that , but far too many people seem to have no problem with it…

    i am sorry to hear that you had a couple of rough days i hope that things look up for you and that you smile and have lots of fun these days.
    smiling suits you.
    and what else suits you like a glove?dahhhhhh this dress which would make anyone else look 9 months pregnant in a very unpleasant to look at way and makes YOU look like a greek Goddess (add the gold greek-ish necklace and you are in).
    and the colors. fab fab ones.
    love your blog and hope that everything's going perfect for you.
    hope to hear from you soon, drop by to drop a message

    Awww, Take Care, Alex! Toronto is very different from Vancouver and it's understandable that you may feel a little homesick right now, but it's a gorgeous and vibrant city to explore. I hope your dog is okay and it sucks that you can't be with him/her when you want to.

    So sorry to hear your week has been sub-par, my lovely pal. I had been chuggng along quite happily until today, when everything hit the fan… So I can completely commisserate. On the bright side, though, you are looking as stunning as ever. I love the combination of red and turquoise – you wear it so beautifully, especially with that tan. (Yep, still jealous.) Here's hoping that you're on the upswing for the weekend 🙂

  43. 5.25.12

    Moving to a place is always hard. No matter how many times you move. The good news is that things eventually do fall into place and places (even the remotest village in Africa) can truly become our own. The best cure is time and patience ( I truly write this from a loooong experience with perpetual displacement).

    This dress looks great on you – it really makes you eyes pop, and the colour combo is gorgeous. xoxo Danina

    I hope you feel better soon! Take some time for yourself to indulge in something you love, and make lots of phone calls home. Hop

    i loooove she's the man. it makes me laugh out loud all the time. you might want to throw on death at a funeral. it's british dry humour and is such a laugh out loud comedy. they have it on net flix now. that third photo is WEIRD with that person.
    i'm sure you are just a bit homesick for the mountains…maybe hit up second city on their cheap nights on king st. near spadina.

    I'm sorry to hear about a sucky week and I hope the right combination of Zoolander, some bright coral nails {my current choice!} and an amalgamation {obviously I was impressed!} of Ghiradelli, Sees, etc. will help! Just moving in general, plus navigating the couple different timezones {cough*hawaii*cough} you have already is enough to throw me out of the loop for a good few weeks. Happy Friday and have a great weekend 🙂 You look lovely!!

    sweetheart, 1st off i'm relieved to hear your puppeh is doing okay now. thank goodness!!! but oh man do i ever get you about all the avalanche-ish feelings. sometimes we seem to wade through the mire of our life but you know what, things are moving for you and movement always kicks up some dust. i know you'll get to a settling spot and you'll feel tons better for longer periods of time.

    good for you to vent it out and be honest, it's refreshing and encouraging to read because it always feels so lonesome when we're in the depths. you breath and exude streamlined swagger, you're top notch lades. many blessings as you travel this new normal. xo ♥

  57. 5.29.12

    im following you now 😀 maybe wanna follow back? 😉
    you have a pretty dress darling 🙂
    take care,
