Wednesday Weekly #89

Happy Wednesday!  I’m stoked to be back home from our little holiday to Toronto and Ottawa! We had a great time and I’m feeling so refreshed and I am itching to sew something. Right now I’m obsessing over the new Charlie Caftan – I think this could be my perfect summer dress! Apologies for skipping the Wednesday Weekly last week, I decided to take a real break and not do any blog-related things (other than the posts I had lined up already). As a result, this Weekly is HUGE! There were so many awesome releases, I couldn’t leave any out.
