What we wore #2

We're in full swing of the summer challenge and I think I've actually worn most of the prescribed outfits and only went rogue a couple times.
For the sake of being awesome, I'm going to change up the format of my posts.

First, let's look at what I wore:

Here's the deets on what I was thinking:

OOTD3: denim vest+white dress + head wrap 
I had this white dress in the donate pile as I don't like how big the elastic portion is around the top..but it works perfectly with a denim vest!  I don't like those shoes with it and didn't end up wearing them out.

OOTD4: kimono+ flowy top + boyfriend shorts + metallic sandals
This outfit felt very naturally me.

OOTD5: lace top + bright shorts + colourful necklace + wedges
I was too lazy to shave my legs, so I went with some crazy hammer pants.  My BFF, Christy was in town for lunch and shopping so we were kinda matchy, but not really.

OOTD6: chambray top + white shorts + head wrap + sneakers
I put on the formula just for the sake of pictures then changed out....went for drinks with Candace and Ali...Candace is also doing the challenge. We had matching bottoms.  

OOTD7: denim vest + maxi + wedges
Was bored with maxi dresses so I took the opportunity to try the ballerina poof skirt and a crop top.  Then I chickened out and wore a jumper out instead.

OOTD8: flowy top + printed shorts or palazzo pants + metallic sandals
Perfectly comfortable and wonderful outfit.  I felt kinda monochromatic so I wore bright earrings and fuschia lips.

OOTD9: graphic Tee + boyfriend shorts + sneakers
I felt relaxed and comfy in this.  Kinda boring, but perfect for running around all day.

Now, let me talk about one of the outfits....I was going to pick the picture that had the most likes on the Facebook Group, but I thought there were too many variables for that.
Can you guess which outfit from the above got the most likes?

So instead, I decided to pick my favourite outfit of the week and talk about it.....the poof or tulle skirt trend.
I have been eyeing up poof skirts since Jillian Harris started showcasing them in the winter?  I can't remember.
So I ordered a mint tulle skirt, knee length, in March..which they lost and I ended up getting a couple weeks ago.  Then my sister ordered a crop top/ballerina skirt from Simons that she didn't like and I just happened to be there when she was going through her treasures and decided to try it on.  Well, I texted my friends and hubby and got some positive feedback, so I decided to keep that too.  So much for my June shopping ban.
Le oops.

I have yet to put together an outfit for the mint poof skirt and I was going to last night, but then the kids had a day of meltdowns and I gave up and had wine instead. Because that's how I roll.
I did, however, make Christy try one on during our afternoon out....I think she could pull it off!  Well at least she gets points for enthusiasm.

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 …
