Feeling inspired: outfit edition

I'm going to give my creative voice more ownership in the next couple Wednesday style posts and show you what has inspired me, in the fashion realm.   Whenever I'm browsing the web, I keep my eyes out for things that I'd like to recreate and make my own.

1)  Jillian Harris.  I love everything she wears (and everything about her) (especially her affinity for beer and her potty mouth), but this outfit really stuck out.  I tried it with my light distressed boyfriend jeans (Gap) and then decided in the end that they are too baggy and made my already short and thick  muscular legs look shorter and muscularer.  So I went with my dark Jessica Simpson skinny jeans.  I was also more comfortable and that's important.  I paired it with my light pink Gap jacket that Dan got me 8 years ago.

2) My other woman crush, Anna Kendrick.   I saw Pitch Perfect 2 last weekend and I loved it as much as I loved the first.  Anna Kendrick is my favourite.  So of course I wanted to remake this outfit when I saw it.  I didn't end up wearing this out as I decided that my grey jeggings weren't right for my body: they keep sliding down my hips and then I get baggy butt.  I'll have to keep my eyes out for something better as I do really like how grey goes with everything, especially stripes and polka dots.

And while we're at it...let's talk what I've been window shopping this week....joggers/soft pants/harem pants
Come back next week when I style something boho and something like my bestie.

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 …
