Summer Style Challenge- the wrap up

It's the last summer style challenge post for this year.  As of now, I'm undecided if I will continue with the challenges.  I know for sure I won't do the Work Wear one next month, it's the fall challenge that I'll really have to think about.

So for this last week, in this gross, smoky weather, this is what I've worn:

OOTD 17: Graphic Tee + White Shorts + Striped Espadrilles- This was Canada Day and what better way to be as patriotic as Canadians do patriotic than by sporting my favourite Canadian team's shirt.  I have two following the guidelines and then the other is what I actually wore.

OOTD 18: White dress + Necklace + Metallic Sandals- I just got this shirt dress from Winners on my date with my mom last week and I couldn't wait to wear it.  I even wore it out to the movies with Candace and Sara (Magic Mike XXL) was so comfy!

OOTD 19 : Flowy top + Boyfriend Shorts + Necklace + Wedges - Sarah and I have the same top and when I saw that she styled it last week, I knew I had to throw it in this week somewhere.  I wore this outfit all day, minus the wedges. 

OOTD 20: White tank + Lace Shorts + Wedges - Lace shorts are my thang, so I just wore my normal, boring shorts.  I loved this outfit and wore it most of the day.

OOTD 21: Maxi Dress + Metallic Sandals - I was feeling brave early in the day and thought it would be the perfect day to debut my floral romper, sans vest.  But it was cold, so I changed to my maxi and was quite happy wearing it.  

As I sit and write this post, realizing that I normally, at this point, would go into depth about one item, I can't find anything I really want to talk about.  And because it's the last summer challenge link up, I just want to go on the record saying that I had fun with this one, even though I was hesitant to sign up.  I think I enjoyed it because I felt comfortable with what works for me and wasn't feeling like I needed to buy something just because it was on the list.  I used the shopping list as a guide and decided what would look good on my body and/or suited my style.  I guess that's what the important part to me: finding what suits my body and my personality and going with it.

Short and sweet for today.  Come back Friday when the Style Me Bloggers talk their Summer Go-To Style....I have yet to figure out what is stylish about my go-to style.....yikes.

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 …
