Starts with draped pants...

Happy weekend! And may I add, "long time no see!". This summer has been surprisingly busy. While the upside is that there has been a great balance of work and play to keep things interesting, the downside is that time quickly passed by before I realized how long ago my last post was.

Tonight, some dear friends joined my hubby and me for dinner in Toronto's Distillery District. If you've never been, this is definitely one of my favourite places to visit in the summer. And if you're searching for a new restaurant to try, I highly recommend Cluny (their veal meatball and salmon tartar are heavenly). 

For a casual day-to-night outfit that suited both the heat of the afternoon and the breeziness of the evening, I opted for a pair of comfortable draped pants in crepe material. The thicker fabric give these pants more structure, and less of a pyjama look in my opinion.

Because the pants are voluminous, I opted to keep the pairing simple and streamlined. A long necklace and racer-back silk tank helped ensure the look didn't overwhelm my petite frame. To complement the overall softness of the ensemble, I carried a structured handbag.

The tank and subtle silver accessories were complemented by a metallic pop from the sandals. 

Hope you're having a great summer so far!
