Nostalgic #5

I thought it would be fun to throw back today to one of my first fashion posts.  I think I started in late 2013, documenting random outfits, but this post comes from the pretty much same time of year. I thought it would be fun to put on the outfit to see how it looks now, or how I would style the exact same clothes 2 years later, but you'll have to come back on Wednesday for that to see my teacher look...  As for my two year through back, you can read the original post here or just continue on.

Last year, in order to keep my winter wardrobe innovating, I decided to force myself to make an outfit out of whatever came next in the shirt section of my closet.    Twas loads of fun inventing outfits plus it helped me get rid of things I wasn't really using.
This year I plan on resorting to Pinterest to recreate some outfits that I have seen and loved and figured that I could likely pull off with what I have.
For January, I decided to focus on a deep purple/maroon/burgundy/wine...really? what colour is this???? combo with browns/creams and blacks.

WHAT I LOVED:


WHAT I CAME UP WITH: 


Free People top, ON SALE RIGHT MEOW! &  pants from Winners last year

1- Signorelli Sweater from the Bay..can't find it online, old Guess boots.
2- Aritzia sweater, Sanibel pennant (Stella Dot)
3- Old BCBG top from Bay, GoodNight Macaroon faux fur vest, Lia Sophia necklace

side note: I should really get another maroon piece for my wardrobe.  Repeating the same pants over the course of 3 weeks was no fun.  Maybe a maroon blazer? Or textured leggings???  Also? I need to work on taking better pictures....

Up in February will be the dressing up of oversized sweaters, me thinks.  I may change my mind.

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 rambling....today's outfit is a dress, but you'll have to hop over to the Blended Blog to see it. Muahahahahha...here'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 …
