Heat Wave!

Hello Gorgeous Bunch!

If you are anything like me at the moment i find blogging very difficult- To
nice , to warm, to sunny who wants to sit in front of her PC!

Anyway because i love you so much i managed this weekend a couple of photo shoots under the excruciating heat we have been experiencing these few weeks!


Vintage dresses shortened
This is one of my favorite dresses
The owner of the restaurant we go for supper at once a week - He, by the way did Izzy wedding reception  told me he liked this dress very much
In a world of boring and monochrome fast fashion it was a refreshing look


I sweat my little heart out in this wonderful vintage jumpsuit

I swear vintage fabric is not for 40 and over temperature

But it is a wonderful piece -

Sunnies purchased at a yard sale in the neighborhood -


Sunflower in St-Louis Square

We went biking Saturday - We stopped for a glass of wine at a wine bar called Ile Noire - it is near the Quebec National  Library

This was my biking outfit

You will never see me in an boring biking outfit

We made another stop at St-Louis Square on The  Plateau


Sitting in St-Louis Square on The  Plateau
Having a break before joining Izzy at a vegan restaurant called Eaux Vivres
I have been there before for Mother's Day
Its is one of the best vegan restaurant in Montreal


Square St-Louis has million dollars houses
It is prime location
It used to be a poor neighborhood



 Sparkly biking shoes!




I am back to work after 3 weeks of vacation -

It has been smooth and relax - lots of work to be done but working for a nice bunch of people -

Yeap! it is a whistle you see there - Why am i wearing a whistle, ummmmm...i intend to transform this whistle...sparkly whistle maybe??? what do you think ?


Hope you enjoyed this post

I will joining Patti at Visible Monday and Monday Mingle
I will be back soon

Je vous fais la bise

You are having a wonderful vacation, I see! Your colorful dresses are adding to the fun. Yes, I think the whistle will be a great necklace after a touch of Ariane : >

You look very relaxed and happy after your vacation - I hope that feeling will last for a while after you return to work. I love all three of these outfits, especially the gorgeous colours!

Ooh I love the beautiful jumpsuit (more pics! more pics!) and the colours of the gorgeous vintage mini. And the architecture is SO lovely! Sarah xxx

Terri said...

Love the bold color in that first dress and in your biking outfit. It's hard to imagine that St. Louis Square was once a poor neighborhood as the houses now look very interesting.

Melanie said...

The photos of you with your arms joyously raised are really awesome - my favourites! Your approach to biking outfits is the best, right down to the sparkly shoes. And your idea about the whistle is inspired. I need sunglasses for your first psychedelic dress. Hot! And you sweat your heart out so beautifully in your maxi. Great post!

Joni James said...

Definitely add some sparkle to your whistle, then you can whistle while you work this week! You can celebrate with your co-workers the fact that you're back to work. ;)

What a cute hat on you up top there. And I love both looks on you. You look completely different in each of these photos. Must be because you are a multifaceted beauty!

I love all of those outfits..the long dress is marvelous :))) Vintage clothes do have thick fabrics at times. Here it is cool and sunny, very enjoyable. The house looks fabulous, I like places like that. I hope you enjoy the rest of your week and being back at work isn't too stressing for you, I know going back can sometimes mean a huge amount of work to catch up on. xx

just me said...

beautiful, colorful, summer dresees. look amazing.

kaffesoester said...

The jumpsuit is incredible on you, the colour goes so well with you own colours, beautiful! I can see that I have to do something about my bicycle gear, I'm so boring to look at! The old houses are fantastic, but very expensive indeed!

Psycho Cat said...

Oh, your sparkly shoes are gorgeous :) so is the dress from second picture :)

Krista said...

You are always so bright and happy. I love the pink Hawaiian number and your biking outfit rocks! I can't wait for my 2 weeks off in September and then I'm off to the UK!

Franca said...

I love the jumpsuit and your biking outfit! that neighbourhood looks beautiful!

Vix said...

I love your catsuit and vintage mini, they are so pretty on you and make you look so happy I don't think there's such a thing as being too hot, I swear I was a lizard in another life. I once rode a camel across the Sahara and swear I hardly broke into a sweat. Am I odd?

Heather said...

Ha love your shoes ~Your to cute you look great no matter what you wear!! Love all these outfits!! and I so agree about vintage clothing and it being warm hehehe I have a few dresses but can't wear them until it cools down a little we are having a heat wave also. Great pictures hope you enjoy the rest of your summer!! Love Heather

Helga! said...

I feel fabulously blinded by the uber bright glory of that first frock!
I'm adoring the jumpsuit AND your awesome biking outfit! Who says biking outfits should be boring?!Definetly not you!
That's one hell of a gorgeous neighbourhood!

pastcaring said...

Colour colour and more colour! You look so happy and relaxed and carefree, Araine. The first dress is to die for, and the jumpsuit is glorious, I knew Sarah Misfit would be all over it! And even when cycling, there is no reason to be drab, is there?
I am useless in high temperatures, I just wilt.
Gorgeous photos. xxxxxxx

The Jones said...

Completely adore your paisley maxi, it's so swishy and pretty :) I'm glad your work transition has been smooth...I'm always terrified when I leave work for even a couple days! Love the photos of your locale...looks like you live in a gorgeous city :)

Lorena said...

That's the spirit after a nice long vacation !
I really like that long jumper - you look wonderful in it .

CityScape Skybaby said...

Love the summery outfits and the beautiful buildings and the big sunflower! I'm very much looking forward to reading your blogs and thank you so much for your encouraging comment on my blog, it was very much appreciated and gives me a bit of confidence to keep blogging. xx

I'll bet the jumpsuit is polyester, or crimplene as Vix would say! It doesn't breathe very well in the heat. Your outfits are so colorful and fun. For someone who doesn't want to do much in the heat, looks like you're doing very well!! This is my time to hibernate (in the air conditioning). I'll re-emerge in the fall!!

Continue to have fun. You look great.

Mary Lou said...

wow this is a overdose of fabulousness ari;) i love all your looks, but i lost my heart for the maxidress;)
you are a sunshin;)

The Style Crone said...

Loving the pose with your colorful shortened vintage dress. And the jumpsuit is so much fun with its wide legs and fun colors. Sounds like you had a great vacation!

Lynn Dylan said...

Looks like you have lots of fun! Love the bright biking outfit. We have a new-ish (9 months old) granddaughter named Isabella a.k.a. Izzy. Love it! Just followed you!


Stephanie @ Henry Happened said...

I love these bright colors for summer and heat waves! both outfits are lovely!

Your photos are beautiful and so are you.
Your hot weather ensembles are lovely.
We are suffering in Texas probably until November. Then it will be nice and cool for being outdoors.
