A Fall Blog Hop: Transitioning Vests

Welcome to my little spot and a most Happy Thanksgiving to you.  You can bet we're spending tons of time this weekend with friends and family, celebrating our blessings and eating boatloads of turkey and pumpkin pie.
Speaking of blessings, I'm grateful my Dad was willing to take some pictures for me on a gorgeous Sunday, in between teaching Willis how to ride a bike and chasing Lucia on her tricycle.  I was sweating in the sun, but it was kinda fun pretending to be a model.   If you're visiting from the blog hop, then you'll know that I've been tasked with showing how to transition summer vests into fall, so let's get right to it.

1) The denim vest.  Same purpose as in the summer: an extra layer for warmth.  But instead of it covering up maxi dresses or crop tops, the handy denim vest now layers over plaid shirts and sweaters.
These looks are from this past summer with the same vest.

 Same vests, many degrees of sunshine different.

2) Menswear vests.  Fact: I have a love for a menswear vest or sleeveless blazer.  In the summer I wore them over rompers and maxi dresses, like so at grad:

Now I'm pairing them with turtlenecks and jeans and t-shirts.  This white vest I have is too big for me, so I'm going to have to have it brought in...I love it way too much to donate it.

Here are a few other ways I've worn vests to work this fall:

I also have 2 black vests: one that is structured and the other one is more flowy.

Other vests that I would be adding to this list that could easily be transitioned is the military vest, but I don't have one.  It would look great paired with a plaid top, skinny jeans and rubber boots .

And because I'm already thinking winter, here are a couple must have vests for the upcoming snow season.

Thanks for stopping by, now head on over to my dear friend, Lana's blog, where she'll show you how she styles summer tanks.  Have a great Monday!

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 …
