Sometimes in life, you have to wear pants.  I count on summer to be warm enough to wear dresses and comfortable skirts, but sometimes, summer lets me down.  Tonight was one of those nights.  My dinner club friends planned to meet on a lovely summer patio for cocktails and dinner, expecting a balmy evening and instead got overcast chilly weather.  What’s a girl to do?

FINE then.  I will wear pants but I'm not going to like it.

I’m still not sure how I feel about capris, but I like the drapey vibe of these Ann Taylor olive capris

Pairing them with pumps made me feel more Anthro, and also taller and thus able to eat more.

As much as I'm #afraidofpants, I love the combo of olive and red.

I threw a scarf in my bag, ‘natch, and good thing I did because we “toughed” it out on the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald patio and enjoyed a chilly but lovely evening!

Obligatory bathroom selfie.  I love you, Bird-Print Scarf.

If you find yourself on a chilly summer patio, follow my lead and wear a bright colour, a warm blazer and a nice scarf.  And don’t be afraid to ask for a blanket!
