Spring Style Challenge Week 2

The Spring Challenge is in full swing and I'm having extra fun this go around.  I attribute that to a couple things: having friends already that I met during the challenge a year ago and having all the pieces already in my closet, which just makes it a matter of being creative.

Here's the summary of what I wore this past week:

Wednesday: Cardigan + Black Tank + Printed Scarf + White Jeans + Hoop Earrings + Wedges

I got a silly flat tire on Wednesday and had to change all my plans that day, including what I had planned to wear.  Then by the end of the day after I sorted it all out, I was ready to start feeling cute.  
Outfit details:
Scarf: H&M (old) I like this one
Jacket: Modcloth (here)
Shirt: Joe Fresh (old) Similar
Jeans: Kut for Cloth (Nordstrom)

Thursday: Chambray + White Tank + Dark Wash Jeans + Hoop Earrings + Bright Flats

This outfit made me feel young and fun and happy.  Not too sure if it was the mix of my favourite colours or getting to wear my Britney tee.....

Denim vest: Target (old) I just ordered this one because Christy couldn't stop talking about denim vests
Britney Tee: Because I love her. Don't judge.
Jeans: Jessica Simpson (The Bay)
Flats: Vince Camuto "Ellen"...comfiest shoes ever!
Purse: Kate Spade
Smile: Fake- I was grouchy taking pictures.

Friday: Bright Jacket + Printed Top + Dark Washed Jeans + Hoop Earrings + Wedges

Perfect outfit for hanging with me madre who is also doing the challenge!  I had fun with makeup this day and tested out a new coral lipgloss.
Jacket: Soia &Kyo
Tee: Joe Fresh
Jeans: Mossimo @ Target....which I hemmed myself!!!!! I feel so grown up
Shoes: Converse, old

Saturday: Cardigan + Gray Tee + White Jeans + Long Necklace + Sandals

It was a two outfit day.  One for roughing around the house and another for a night out celebrating my birthday!  My going out outfit was inspired from my 3 outfits à la Deena posts here.  I felt awesome in that outfit, so glad I got it!

Plaid Shirt: Old Navy, old
Gray Shirt: Forever 21, old
Jeans: Gap, old
Flats: Blowfish, old
old old old...just like me.

Kimono: Tonic.  If I was buying one now, I'd get this one.

This outfit made me smile all day !

My favourite outfit of these....I think I would pick my go out ensemble from Saturday night, simply because I'm not usually comfortable in dressy outfits and I think I could have worn this all night.

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 …
