Basic Week Three.

Deena | Joy | Dee | Leslie | Patty | Shawnee | Shaunta | Leslie C.

I wore two of the basics challenge outfits this week! Yay me!  They were definitely dressed down, but they worked for what I had going on

Cardigan + Blouse + Black pants + Black Boots + Leopard Belt
For me it was more like an oversized Grandpa sweater (Winners), a black shirt (Pleione Nordstrom) Boyfriend Jeans (Gap) and Brown Boots (Hush Puppies)

Chambray + Black jeans + Leopard Belt + Riding Boots. 
For me: pretty much that, but I swapped out the belt for the scarf.  The outfit even worked when I had to bundle up to go pickup Willis.

What I'm finding the most challenging about this challenge is the fact that I don't wear really anything other than Sorels/Uggs on my feet and most of the time, if I'm out and about, I have my huge winter jacket over top my snazzy outfit.  So on top of thinking about purse/boots that go with my outfit I have to think about how it translates with my winter jacket/boots.

Join us on Friday as the Style Me Bloggers talk about our favourite Holiday Meals:


  1. Your outfits always look great! I love that white puffer coat! Looks nice and warm :)

  2. You got me beat with 2 outfits...I just didn't get into the groove again this week! You look great in every photo, as always!

  3. That snow looks fun but I bet it must get old. I think you are doing great with what you can do! I'd be hibernating in my jammies! :)

  4. you don't look remotely 'basic' in the basics! gorg as always

  5. So pretty - love the chambray with the scarf!. I'm the same - always having to put a coat over my outfit which takes all the fun out of it! However, I love your warm coat - right up my alley.

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's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it.'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 …
