On Trend Tuesdays: Florals

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]elcome to my new feature that will be running on Tuesdays in the most wonderful month of the year, April!  4 Tuesdays to talk spring fashion trends, which works out perfectly because yesterday on The Blended Blog I featured 4 trends I will be trying this spring.  You can read the post here.

Today I am going to talk my 3rd pick: florals.  And because I couldn't figure out where to start, I thought I would get some inspiration from the past looks I have sported since I started shamelessly selfie-ing my outfits. Here's what I have worn for florals since spring of 2014. As a side note, looking through these pictures made me miss my short hair. Sigh. Why does the cycle always have to go that way? Why must I grow it out, just to chop it off??!!



So what am I doing to adding some fresh florals to my wardrobe bouquet? Shoes, which is my favourite thing to get because my feet never feel fat and they can be an inexpensive add.  The cute watercolour flats that I picked up were 35$ from the Shoe Company (here) and will add some great colour to my white jeans and bright blazer.  The way I'm pushing myself is pairing floral with stripes, because as you can see in the collage above, I tend to just stick to one crazy per outfit.

Florals







Come back tomorrow as celebrate Spring Sweaters with the Blended Bloggers....I styled a very tame (in Deena standards) outfit with some crazy floral shoes...because that's how I roll.    À demain!

  27. Ok, here are the patterns, prints I have come to know you for. Love them all. Isn't pattern-mixing just the best thing? Why were we warned against it for so long?

  32. Okay, wait you don't have to answer this but I thought you lived in Toronto, for some reason. Now it looks like you might live near Saskatoon. I grew up there!!! And I go back to Saskatchewan to visit at least once a year. How fun!!!

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 …
