Work Your Work Wear Challenge. Week one. The one without the work.

That's right, I'm doing Alison's work wear challenge without a work place.  This is SO a year too late for me.  But I decided that this would be the perfect opportunity for me to practice styling down outfits and to shop my closet.  Check out what the other great bloggers are doing also and give them some love, we have two bloggers who are brand spanking new to the blogworld this week!!!

Once Upon a Time & Happily Ever After | Looks Like Lauren


As for me, this is what I came up with this week.  I did have errands to run and such, so it was nice to have something to get dressed up for.  I'm actually putting in a couple mornings "at" work this week so will be able to use the work challenge to it's fullest.  Stay tuned for more ensembles next week!

The one with the bright blouse, black dress pants, statement necklace and leopard print shoes.  

The one with the sheath dress with a white button up underneath, statement necklace and bright flats.
Linking up with Alison also!

  1. I really like how you layered the tshirt under the dress. Not something I ever think to do but it looks great. Also love the back of the green shirt, a nice little surprise on the back!

  2. I love everything about the first. I really need a purse that I can wear across my body. I know you aren't wearing yours like that in the pic, but it looks long enough to. Super cute for errands!

  6. If I didn't have to go to work, I don't know that I would ever change out of comfy clothes. I love dressing up, but comfy clothes are just, well, comfy. Cute outfits--I'm absolutely in love with the color pairing on the first one!

    1. Hahah, I completely agree on the comfy clothes being awesome. I may have only worn these outfits for 2 hours in the day, possibly because my cozy clothes are secretly my favourite. Thanks for stopping by!

Sunshine inspired fashion

Today I'm showing you the first outfit I got on my trip to Scotland/England and it just happens to be in one of my favourite colours....yes, yellow.  I also put together some of my fave yellow picks on the interwebs for you in the above link.

I have posted a few of my fave yellow pieces before like the one with the blazer  or the one with the yellow shoes and jacket and then there is also this bag that I got in Vegas last year that always makes me swoon....


Anyway, I'm rambling....today's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it. Muahahahahha...here's sneak peak.

A blogger meet up in Toronto

It was like a weekend long blind date...... e-Harmony but for friends..... Possibly one of the craziest things I've done..... But I spent the weekend with 10 other women whom I met online. Well, except for my real life bestie on the far right. We have a group of 14 bloggers who have been collabing since the spring of 2014 and what first was simple blog fun has quickly become a sisterhood.   Last year we met in Vegas, this year we settled for Toronto and had 11 members.
Trip highlights include a bus trip with wine and Niagara Falls, a walking tour of downtown Toronto, plenty of great meals, a shopping adventure and rooftop hot tubs at night.  I could go into the details, but for me, the actual trip to Toronto wasn't why I went...the Jays weren't even playing. What brings me the most joy about this trip is the fact that women from all walks of life, all ages (we had 30, 40 and 50 somethings) with a gamut of different interests took a leap of faith and traveled to meet women…

London 1

Sunday/Monday was a blur.   It went from cruising around Toronto (that means shopping) with the little group of Blended Bloggers that were left over to heading to the airport to meet Dan and the kids then to an overnight flight to Dublin and then another 2ish hour flight to London.  At least the kids slept an hour or two, but I couldn't do it.   Currently in zombie mode.   When we got to our hotel (MalMaison Charterhouse Square) we had to nap. Well I had to anyway before I started losing it.   After an hour long family nap, Dan headed to work and I decided to take the kids out on an adventure in the neighbourhood.  We're only 850 metres from St. Paul's Cathedral and I hadn't visited it last time I was here so it was an easy pick. First I had to devise a plan to keep them engaged and because Pokemon is all they ever want, it was an easy bait.  The deal was that if they came and learned something with me, they got to have some Pokemon time in the area. It worked like a …
