Fall clothing and decor favourites.

Linking up with Andrea as well as Casey, Whitney and Carrie for a little bit of fall fashion and a whole lot of fall decor.

This week I have worn: 3 outfits are from Alison's WorkWear Challenge, two aren't because I couldn't wear jeans or didn't want to wear a blue oxford and thusly made my own creations.  I also had to figure out a new outfit spot this week as the sun is getting up lazily later every day.  Slacker.

PS...these are my new floral sh$% kickers (Doc Marten, Soft Moc), acquired on the girls' trip last month.  Also...not too sure why my hair went wild for this picture. Whatevs.

Paint splatter patterned top (DKNY- Winners), New black blazer (Halogen- Nordstrom-similar), old purple pants (Winners) and Nine West giraffe print shoes.  Which were a mistake to wear.  I haven't worn them in ages and now my feet are all scarred up.

Pearls (push present from Dan when I had Willis), white top (Joe Fresh), leopard leggings (H&M) and red heels (Chinese Laundry)

I realize this outfit is a little bit of everything.  There's floral, lace, leather and if there was a tassle on the back of my boots, I'd have fringe.  Blazer- H&M, Black top- H&M, Leather mixed media pencil skirt - Michael Kors, cognac boots- Sam Edelman.

Shirt dress- Gap, booties- DWS, Scarf- gift from friend.
That's it, that's all.  As a side note, I wore those giraffe flat sandal thingies on Monday and they sliced up my feet pretty nasty.  It's been a long week of trying to wear comfy shoes and not aggravate my blisters.   I am soooo looking forward to a weekend in nothing but my pajamas and bare feet!

On to decor...........
My house is now fully decorated for fall.  The counters are adorned with a multitude of pumpkins, big and small.  Most of which have been 'decorated' by Lucia and by decorate, I mean scribbled on with pencil and marker.  Oy.   Our walls are festooned in garlands of leaves and random drawings by the little Miss . Fall has arrived and it's beautiful.  As you can see, my tomato collection is on it's last rounds...for the past 3 weekends, I've been making a batch of tomatoe something or other as they ripened.  This weekend is the last batch.  I think I will make more spaghetti sauce.

My classroom even has some fall decor.  Okay, it's only a wreath.  I'll have to work on that.

It has been another busy week, barely keeping ahead of my school work and only just staying on top of my correcting.  I guess I kinda made it busy myself, booking lots of outings with my people: an art class with Kyla, a sushi date with Jordan and an all you can eat shrimp night with the girls last night.

Life, particularly in the fall, is beautiful.
Have a splenderrific weekend.  Come back on Monday for the Nostalgic Series linkup...share an old post or something that reminds you of the past!

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 …
