Wednesday Style + a scarf exchange

Admittedly, I have fallen off of the outfit pictures train this week.  But also, snowy wet weather doesn't lend to photographic creativity in moi, so this is what you'll have to deal with today.  Plus I only took 2 outfit pictures and I have yet to follow the great prompts over on the Blended Blog...you'll have to see how the girls are styling boots.  If it was me doing the prompt today, I would flashing my Sorels. Because snow.

Outfit 1 is my homage to the Jays winning the Wild Card game last week against Baltimore.  There has since been more winning and I will definitely be sporting some more Jays' inspired outfits. Black tulle skirt + black top and Bautista Jersey.  I wore my plaid poncho to keep warm in the freak storm.




The second outfit was my favourite. I felt very fallish and very french.  I wore my new Ines (here) top from Uniqlo, paired with navy suede leggings, my Sam Edelman boots and a scarf my broinlaw brought me back from France many moons ago.



But the fun part this week was a scarf exchange I participated in with Vanessa from X-Tremely V.  I sent my scarf to Rachel (Makeuplovingmama) I was especially thrilled to send to a fellow baseball loving momma, even if her team beat us out last year.  You'll have to hop over to her Instagram to see what I sent. ....and I received a beautiful scarf and a sweet note from Katy from The Queen of the Kings .....here is how I styled it on the lovely snowy day...notice how all my sunflowers are frozen...in shock. Yuck, winter.  But yay for pretty infinity scarf from a  local boutique in Texas, Giddy Up Glamour



I love meeting new people via the blog and have added Katy to my growing feedly list of people I like to stalk online.  I should really update the tab up top of blogs I follow. Thanks for the great scarf, Katy and thanks to Vanessa for organizing us!

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 …
