Floral Take Over

I am cycling through my summer floral like a madwoman.  I am a flower child on a mission, a bold pattern day after the next.  If you were to head over to the Blended Blog today, you would see that my style sisters, lead by the beautiful Lisa from Daily Style Finds have started a new series for the month of October focusing on a different piece each week. This week they are featuring sweaters and I'm rebelling and showcasing florals (also I am doing this post last minute because life).





I had my eye on this blazer all summer on Simons.  And then summer ended and stuff went on sale everywhere. I found it at the Bay for 13$, regular 75$.  It had matching pants, which I passed...but I kinda wish I would have at least tried on.

Floral outfit number two comes from a skirt that my sister bought and then was going to give away but I snitched it.  It took me awhile to figure out how to wear it and this is what I came up with.

  2. Love the floral. I REALLY need to own some more pieces. I am desperate to pattern mix but how does a girl do that without a lot of floral. These look great on you.

  11. Love that tee with the floral skirt, made me smile! :) Florals are lovely and it makes sense you want to enjoy your lighter pieces as much as possible before the weather gets too cold! :)

    Hope you're having a fantastic week :)

  12. I remember when we had fall but it seems long gone. :( Love the flower blazer and great steal of a deal. It looks so good with the fall background. I wonder if you should try it against the winter wonder land backdrop too.

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 …
