What We Wore on our Shopping Trip

As you likely know, I am still riding the high of our girls' weekend in Edmonton.  It's soul-filling, life-giving, laugh-inducing and budget-breaking (oops). And every last second of it is golden in my books.  So I thought it would be fun to feature what we wore as my fashion post this week.

About the outfits- it was the year of the dress!  Sara and I were twinning with this cute dress from Simons (here) and were also too lazy to take off our pants for the photo.  Christy got the Aritzia swing dress that I talked about last week (here), but she got a different brand (here) and then returned this one and bought another in Christy blue.  Candace's dress (one of her 5) is from H&M, which I couldn't find online.

I love this look on Candace (maybe because she was recreated the one I just posted last week)  She found the sleeveless cardi at Simons and the swing dress is the same one Christy bought.  Alynne is showing her shopping look- she went with a denim jacket over a tank because the temperature in the mall was either way too sweaty or way too cold.  Also- check out her converse!  I love this outfit Sara put together- all from Simons, skirt (here) and shirt (here)

I enjoyed embarrassing the girls and taking pictures while we were shopping.  Check out Christy's cute skirt and denim vest combo. I feel like we had to talk her into this one (found here)

And there you have it, what we wore shopping (which really encompasses the entire weekend because we didn't leave the mall except to go outside to the Cactus Club)

I'm linking up today with my girls on the Blended Blog. We're showcasing daily looks on various blogs - head on over to the Blended Blog to see how the ladies styled the first 7 looks.  And then come back tomorrow when I show some Fringe fun!

  12. Did your dress that you and Sara were twinning in shrink in that bottom right photo?!?

    You guys are so fashion forward. I love Christy's pink skirt with denim vest. Might be my favorite!

  17. I was taking the picture, lol. They wouldn't let me accost anyone.

  18. You could totally rock a vest!

  19. Yes, it was totally like being a mallrat in high school

  20. bahahahaha, I have the shirt too...yup, liked my shirt so much that I had to get the dress too. I think Christy's outfit was my fave too.

  21. Gah, this is so fun! So many cute looks.

  22. Christy's tulle skirt reminds me of the pink skirt Sarah wore in Vegas. Oh, I wish I wasn't so old. A skirt like that would be my uniform. You gals found such great pieces. I love that you didn't leave the mall except to go to the club. What a wonderful weekend.

  23. […] You really shouldn’t be surprised with the denim vest addition at this point.  This was my favourite outfit this week and also my favourite background. Spookily pretty fog for the morning drive.  I also washed my hair so there’s a winner.  I got this dress on the girls’ shopping trip back in June. You can see how we wore it here. […]

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 …
