I wore this: the one with all the Canadian clothing


Second Yoga Jeans, my new favourite.  And they're a Canadian company, made in Canada

It's a new semester, which brings a new fashion goal for me.  During semester one I wore all my shoes once.  That was fun and also, as a side note...I haven't bought a pair of shoes since.  Maybe I'm on to something.  Being in front of teenagers makes me really think out my outfits each day and I don't like repeating what I wear, maybe that's also because I like being creative. goal for semester 2 is to be inspired more in my outfits and to post them more often.  I am following a couple different groups to gain some said inspiration.

Create 28 Prompts by my lovely little friend, Carrie:

1- Winter Floral.  The top is from Anthropologie from August.  Flowers in the winter make me happy.

Here are some of my fave Anthro winter floral prints right now.

2- My go-to Winter look: oversized sweater (from Simons, my favourite Canadian retailer, no longer available) and leggings (Aritzia-also Canadian. Ha.  I sense a theme.  Leggings here)  

Daily Style Find Prompts

1- Monochromatic with a leather jacket. This was my first venture into monochromatic.  My favourite part was wearing bright pink lipstick as my pop of colour.  This entire outfit is old.  Moto Jacket from Joe Fresh 3 years ago, heart scarf from the BFF, I think she got it an H&M 2 years ago, Audrey Hepburn grey T from Forever 21 5 years ago, grey denim- Wit and Wisdom from Nordstrom last year and black booties from Candace.

2-  Black with red.  This was almost too much red for me, but it was beautiful out and I wanted to wear my red trench and the fun tuque that Carmen made for me...that's a big heart on the side of it.


3- Black and White with a pop of colour.  Key here is picking a colour that works for you.  I love bright.

4 - Sweater over plaid. This may be my favourite sweater, also from a Canadian company (here) .  Andrea, from Living on Cloud Nine had a similar outfit posted and I loved it, so I combined it with one of Lisa's prompts and it made it my own.

That's it for the week.  What I've come to realize about my wardrobe is that I need to pick outfits and pieces that are me.  Do you know what defines your style?

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 …
