Wedding attire

Last week we talked my dreams of recreating my wedding and what I'd pick, dress wise.  I'm still daydreaming about that and was pleased to see that I'm not the only one who regularly envisions another wedding, but to the same wonderful man.
I love weddings.  I have even done videography and photography for weddings, but stopped when they started cutting too much into weekends with my kiddos.
This year, we have zero weddings.  First time ever.  Are we out of wedding season? For this year, sure, but we have a big family wedding coming up next September, so I have to do some thinking.
Luckily, I was contacted by the people at Paul Fredrick to see if I wanted to talk tips for the coordination of outfits for weddings.  Perfect timing, because you know that I'm already coveting dresses and creating a stockpile of potentials.  But that also means that I'm thinking colour coordination for the whole family.
So I put together two ensembles that I would definitely pick if their wedding was this summer.

Outfit 1:  I love Kelly Green and I think this dress would be beautiful paired with some dark neutrals on Dan.  I would put the kids in a complimentary colour to my green, maybe a nice cobalt blue.

Outfit 2:  I love the shape of this yellow dress and how it would shine next to the blues and pinks in Dan's tie.  In this case, because Dan and I are in bright colours, I would put the kids in something more neutral.

So, which one would you pick for me and Dan?  I don't think I could decide and would likely get both and do costume changes.  That's fun too!

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 …
