Winter arrived, forgetting its manners

I have nothing for you today.  I've been stationed in bed with Lucia since Thursday after school and haven't the energy to be witty or cute.  I can, however, show you what I wore for a couple days this week and also let you know that winter arrived with a vengeance.  Time to get out the warmer gear.
Le sigh.
Have a great weekend.

Monday: Grey dress (Kensie) with Floral blazer (H&M) paired with fun grey tights and purple cow-hair Sam Edelman pumps.


Fun tights are going to be my thing this winter.  Most of the items in this outfit are old, so I recreated it for you with currently available items and in blacks.  Items are from the Bay, Simons and BaubleBar


Tuesday: Actually, I think this is Monday's look. Ah well.  Nothing special here. All of my oldest pieces.  Plaid jacket is from Winners.  Polka dot shirt from H&M. Black jeans from H&M.  Black fingerless gloves from H&M. Black MaryJane wedges are Kenneth Cole from Winners.  Pearls are from my sweet hubby.

And here's my recreation using pieces from one of my favourite online shops, ModCloth


Wednesday is my last look because Thursday was spent at home sick with Lucia.  I wanted cozy for the first official snow day of the season.  I also have started wearing turtlenecks under my sweater.  That is going to be my version of the button up under sweater look that I have never liked on me.  Turtlenecks for the win.  Also big cozy winter boots for the win.

I'm sporting my Cougar boots (here) for the first time and man, they are comfy and cozy.  The rest of the outfit is a mix of old and new.  Banana Republic wrap jacket was bought off another blogger, black tunic sweater is from H&M, white turtleneck is from Simons, black necklace is Lia Sophia, leopard pants are from H&M and the black booties were gifted to me, from Candace.

and here's my version of Wednesday's outfit with available pieces from H&M, The Bay, DSW, BaubleBar and Cleo's.


Have a great 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 …
