What I Wore to Work and then some

Oh, it's been a week.
I'm happy to report that I'm back to feeling 100% comfortable in the classroom; I love my students already and even look forward to spending my two hours with them.  I teach Christian Ethics 30 (in French) in 2nd and French 20 in third.  That means I'm done at noon and have plenty of lovely afternoons with Lucia or lovely afternoons with yours truly.
Maybe a 'Day in my life' post should be in order next week.

The part of this week that is still leaving my overwhelmed is the prep.  Two classes that I haven't taught in awhile leaves me only half a step ahead of my students, and that doesn't make me feel good. Hopefully things will calm down.

But hey, the other thing I love about being back in the classroom? Dressing for it!
Here's what I wore this week.  Note, there are 5 different looks.  All of them, except one, is from Alison's Work Wear Challenge.  Can you guess the Deena created look? She had a blue oxford paired with a bright pants and I don't do blue oxfords, so I got crafty.  ALSO? I haven't worn the same pair of shoes yet to school.  New life goal: see how long I can go without a repeat.
Anyway, back to the looks of le week:

I need a new photo place, the lighting is getting dark here.  This is a new top from Anthropologie (check out the back!) paired with denim wide leg trousers (Loft-old) and cork nude pumps (Nine West, old)

I'm happy to report that some of my students got and appreciated this tee...I wish more did

Lucy and I had a girls' afternoon at the mall and she picked her own outfit which was similar to the one I was wearing and then insisted she carry Toto and Toothless around in their basket.

We then hit up a park where she practiced her skillz.

And then I made her take a picture with me.  Side note, that bag is the one Christy made me buy on the girls' trip at Michael Kors. I LOVE it.  Thanks for being pushy, bestie.

Cozy Cozy for a rainy day.

Black on Black with a pop of colour and some leopard.  Loved this outfit!
That's it, that's all!  Next week marks the end of the work wear challenge and then the fall one will be up and running.  I plan on continuing my outfit posts, mostly because I want to prove to hubby that I wear everything but also because girl needs to keep track of the shoes.
Have a fabulous weekend!

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 …
