About a Boy
It's been a lovely, lazy Labour Day long weekend in Canada and this outfit sums up my weekend. Very laid back and chilled. And ever since I cropped my hair off, I've been feeling tomboyish. So, I pulled out my polo shirt by Ralph Lauren made for boys (yes, it's size 12 or 14 boys shirt), some new but comfy-like-old jeans, and wellies.
Speaking of these wellies, I finally got them after I first blogged about these in December last year! They're by Ilse Jacobsen, and originally I wanted them in white. We're starting our rainy season with Fall nipping in the air, and I couldn't wait to pick these up (at 25% off, too).
I didn't do much this weekend other than a lot of eating and hanging around the house and garden. On Friday night, hubby and I had a late-night dinner date at a delish izakaya (food porn pics and review to follow soon).
On Saturday night, we had a BBQ dinner party and hubby made a delicious grilled rack of lamb with coriander seed; chili-spice rubbed spot prawns with japanese mayo on skewers; and coconut marinaded chicken wings. All paired with a bottle of Nota Bene from Black Hills and another bottle of Cab Sauv from Aussie. Dessert was Key Lime Pie, one of my faves.
On Sunday morning, we slowly climbed out of bed and it was off to dim sum with my gran and cousins. Followed by a trip to J.J Bean before coming home to watch 3 DVDs in a row and making a pancetta-brocolli-mushroom gruyere quiche.
I love my long weekends.
