A week of stuff

It's been a fantastic week for this BlueJays loving family, despite the fact that I was single parenting with way too many 4-6 hours of sleep nights and way too much school work to do and well, there's never enough time.  You know what there was time for though??? Celebrating the first division win in 22 years.

Cheers to the Jays!

Now on to what I wore.....
Outfit 1- it was jeans day and I was thrilled to bring out the acid wash.  It was also the last day of the workwear challenge....blazer+white top+dark denim + coloured shoes.

Outfit 2 is a bonus because it was on the weekend and I don't recall why we were posing for pictures....

Outfit 3 was a stretch for me because of the matchy matchy of the shoes and shirt.  I wanted to try it because the oranges were in different shades and I thought it looked neat. And also, I could go biking late at night and not get hit by cars.  And you should probably replace biking in the sentence with drinking wine on the deck.

Outfit 4 was the closest I will get to wearing the crazy bowtie shoes.  The floral top is something that Kyla didn't keep from an order to Simons..which happens often between us.

Outfit 5 is just "meh" in my books. Also it was 22 degrees that day and my classroom had the heat blasting so I ended up sweating my makeup off.  What a superb feeling when you're in front of students. Ugh.  Also, the kids didn't sleep the night before so it was just a crappy day.  I should have stayed home with my whine.

Outfit 6 was in celebration of the previous evening clinch by the Blue Jays.  The Jays' fans in my classes appreciated it.

I'm going to be starting the fall challenge on Monday, but I'll also be doing Carrie, Whitney and Casey's Create28 challenge when I need some extra inspiration.  I have learned from the workwear challenge that I'm not a wardrobe capsule type of girl, and I can't wear the same thing over and over again because I like variety and I think that's what I appreciate the most about Carrie and Casey's Create 28...I get the liberty of playing with what I have.  So, stay tuned next week when I showcase some of these outfits along with some of the fall challenge ensembles.

Come back on Monday for my month review in numbers and see how many shoes I did or didn't repeat in September!  Join me too and link up your posts!

Have a most excellent weekend, if you're reading this on Friday, then I'm liking chilling with my bestie who's in town...she's also being featured on The Blended Blog today...go check her out!

Linking up with Casey, Carrie and Whitney

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 …
