Caution-ary Tale


I love this trend of brightly coloured pants and denim this year - thank you J. Crew for making it mainstream. I never understood why coloured pants weren't more common, why women shy away from this. I remember years ago, working in Windsor and I came into the office wearing pink pants and my colleague (and now one of my dearest friends) Rebecca said "Wow that is a lot of pink. And a lot of pant." And oddly enough, we had several conversation about coloured pants.




Thank you to everyone that came out to the Canadian Urban Institute's second panel session. We had a lively debate about the diversity and specifically about diversity in geography. The discussion shed a light on the way we design our cities and communities, and how that impacts who has access to resources - physical and philosophical - and who doesn't. Let's build more inclusive communities together.

I'm really looking forward to next Wednesday's session, all about art and living an creative life. My childhood dream was to be an artist, maybe this panel will inspire a career change?
