Today is the first group post of the Winter/Holiday Style Challenge, but it's also the last of the Basics Challenge.  Our last outfit from the Basics was Sunday and the first for the Winter was Monday...there's no stopping for me!  

My last week of the Basics had a couple of outfits that I actually wore and then adapted  for being at home:
outfit 1 called for a black sheath dress...I did a black oversized sweater with mustard and red accents in support of a couple challengers who lost their parents this week.
outfit 2 is what I changed in to because the sweater felt a little short.
outfit 3 was my fave!

Now for the winter challenge.

Day 1 look. LOVE IT!  Fur scarf + neutral sweater + black skinnies + riding boots.
The details:
The scarf is detachable from my Michael Kors poncho. Similar.
Neutral sweater: 14th & Union from Nordstrom
Dark skinnies- old, the Gap
Boots- Chinese Laundry. Similar, Similar

Day 2: Puffer  vest + tunic + leggings + riding boots.
The details:
Fur Vest (Simons...I couldn't find it anymore )
Oversized black sweater (H&M)
Sanibel Pennant (Stella Dot)
Black Leggings (HUE)
Red Boots (Miz Mooz)

That's it, that's all! Make sure you go check out the other bloggers to see what they come up with.


  1. My fave outfit is the graphic tee sweater and booties. Such a great casual comfy look. Followed close by the fur scarf outfit! Looking hot!!

  2. You are gorgeous and your make up is perfect :)! Your outfits look pretty great too. I love the black ring you're wearing on day one!

  3. Both of these outfits look so good and so comfy!!! Love! And your hair looks great too :)

  4. Oh love that fur scarf on you! Perfect for where you live :) You are a challege queen my friend :) What did you think about the basics challenge? I'll have to ask my mom what she thought..

  5. You totally look like a diva in your pics for day 1. They are fantastic!!! I kind of went downhill with my attempts during the basics challenge, so it was nice to see the last of your images for that challenge. I am hoping to do better this time around!

  6. You are soooo stylish!! I literally want to move in to your closet and TAKE ALL YOUR CLOTHES!! hehe. LOVE your looks!! Can't wait to see the rest!

  11. Yep! It's all great here! Those mustard tights make me want to drive over to Target (because I'm fairly sure they have them) and get a pair - love! Poncho + faux fur is divine and I'm jealous for sure. The reddish boots are a great find and totally unique. Love it all, friend!

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 …
