Summer Style: what I wore on vacation

I have been wearing clothes, kinda and I have been taking pictures.  I just haven't been blogging it.  So now that I'm on the blog bandwagon, I do have some fun stuff to share and am even feeling motivated to take better pictures.  Or not.

So let's have some fun- today's post is themed around the top 2 outfits that I wore on vacation in beautiful British Columbia a couple weeks ago.

Outfit #1- my new favourite skirt and swing tank.  Paired with birks and Sanibel pennant.  Also, I get tons of questions about my glasses.  I won them in a giveaway on Vanessa's blog...they aren't available anymore but I sure love these..



It was a comfy enough outfit to climb fences and talk to horses with the kids over at my Uncle's place.  I also wore this outfit travelling to Calgary Day 1.




Outfit 2 is my new bathing suit.  Yup, me in a bathing suit.  I hummed and haaed over this one (hence the weird and tense face in picture) and in the effort of being body positive and not hiding in shame because I'm not some unattainable and unrealistic version of myself that would never fit my body structure anyway, I thought to hell with it- here is me in my bathing suit, world.  Eff it, I'm too old and life is too short to worry what others' think.  Also, I love this bathing suit and would wear it everyday.  Sadly for your inner 80s or 90s child, it's sold out from Simons.  

So there you have it, my top 2 outfits, which are actually the ones that I wore the most also, because I don't have pictures of anything else.  Oops...we'll try again next week. #heyitssummer

    Looking hot, looking relaxed and literally the perfect suit and vacay outfit!! Cool, comfy, chic and you look so happy!! If it wasn't getting close to the end of summer, I'd be shopping for a sleek, black one piece, on my list for next spring cause that suit is sooo cute, no wonder it sold out!

  8. Good for you. My sentiments were the same this year....I don't care about me in a bathing suit; I love to swim and want to be with my kids in the water and it is hot out! I'm at my heaviest ever this year but life is too short to not do the things I love, so I spent all my holidays in my bathing suit. Only mine didn't look like I had Kim Kardashians nice butt like yours :) (Carm xo)

  10. LOVE your bathing suit. I need to get something black and sexy like that. I've been coveting that skirt since you first posted it (on IG maybe?). And I see that the purple color is on sale for $19.99!

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 …
