What I Wore: Create28 Easy on the Go

I wore 2 of last week's Create28 prompts: Ball Park Babe and Easy on the Go (modelled by the lovely Shaunacey here).  So I thought I would feature my easy go-to formula for today's post: denim, a neutral top and pop of colour in shoes, bag and jewelry and I'll throw on a military jacket for layering at night.


This outfit got out to 2 events on the weekend: the birthday party for a 3 year old and then the movies (we saw Finding Dory-  Lucia and I loved it, Willis and Dan did not).  On the weekend I rarely do (and by do I mean comb) my hair as it is almost always in a braid and the only makeup I wear is my SPF CC Creme and some blush. Weekends are for keeping it simple in my books.ontehgo2

I gotta talk about the jeans.  They were a purchase in Edmonton (again, the weekend we moved into the mall) from Express...which was a surprise success of a stop for all ladies.  Sara had bought jeans from there on last year's trip and FORCED us to try them on.  I was done shopping at that point and thought I'd humour her and thankfully I did because these jeans feel like pajamas.  They are the softest things and may be comfier than my sweats.  No lies.  We loved them so much that Sara, Candace and I all came home with the same pair.onthego3

Speaking of Sara, Candace and Alynne- I took some pictures at the birthday party, thankfully we weren't all wearing the same outfits as that tends to happen...I figured I would catch the girls in their natural habitat, sporting their Easy on the Go outfits.  So without knowing they would be featured today, this is what these stunning ladies wore:




What do you think? We were all wearing Edmonton purchases except for Alynne who was heading out on a boat somewhere after.  I love Candace's mermaid shirt and the kimono Sara is wearing was also bought by Alynne. Oh, we're birds of a feather.

It's our last week of Create28, pick an outfit or two and link up with us next week!

    Can you be any cuter or look any younger?? Seriously, you look like you're in your early 20's...just cute as a button and LOVE that top...its the perfect summer staple!!

  2. I love how we did a switcharoo without even talking about it!
    Also, nice bag!!!! Looking gorgeous as always!

  3. I am loving that mermaid shirt and that kimono is fantastic. I have looked and looked for one to try on around here but have had no such luck. People in Missouri are boring I guess. Guess who just bought her first pair of converse?! I can hardly wait to get them here!

  4. I noticed the kimono and our jeans right away. I like how sara paired the kimono with a coral shirt. I also noticed your pink converse. Love it all!

  5. I love those pink converse! If I add another pair to my closet, they have to be the pink ones! How much wear do you get out of yours?

  6. I love the pops of color, that fringe necklace totally jazzes up a teeshirt and jeans - you look fantastic! XO -Kim

  7. Love those jeans, I wonder if they are similar to the ones that Andrea had on today...hers were black but she said they were the most comfy jeans ever from express...apparently I need to jump back on the express train :) hehe

  8. Loving your distressed jeans with the pink sneakers!! Your hair looks great too, perfect for summer!

  9. Hello- you are my new favourite person! I think we may have styled the same jeans.

  11. I will have to look more closely!

  12. I highly support pink converse. I wear them about once a week

  13. A cute white and distressed jeans with some amazing and colorful accessories is the perfect weekend look! You look adorable!

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 …
