What I Wore

I'm having one of those weeks where I pick out my outfit the night before and it feels like it will be perfect.  But then I put it on in the morning and hate it and end up trying everything possible from my wardrobe on and hate all those combos too.

Sometimes I wish I could wear onesie pajamas to work.  I think my mood is affected by the grey weather we've been having.

That being said, I have worn some fun outfits this week and here are a few of my favourites:

I didn't actually wear this outfit out but rather put it together for a post on The Blended Blog (here)   But then I really loved it and wore the dress to work the next day.  This is what I came up with:

I am LOVING the cape blazer trend right now and I may or may not have bought another one in blush.

Yup, officially #capeobsessed.

The other two outfits scream fall to me.  The mega bell sleeved sweater is new from Forever 21 (and of course unavailable now. boo) and it may be the comfiest and softest sweater I own.

I was inspired by my BFF, Christy's moto jacket post last I decided to dig mine out and pair it with an old shirt dress from H&M....I also think I found my Halloween costume for this year.  Une abeille. But a stylish and trendy one that likes honey, not the type that stings and is going extinct.

Do you ever have those weeks where you feel like nothings works? I sure did.  But looking back at these pictures, I really like these outfits and I know they were comfortable.  Ah well.  On to the next week....

  4. Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. You make a cute bee. The bell sweater is so very you, as is the cape. Those 'fall' color also screen Deena!

  5. Such a cute little bee you are :) I have been noticing you're all about the capes lately, and saw some at Nordstrom and thought of you and then wanted to buy every single one of them...Gorgeous as always.

  6. I love all of these looks, Deena! Your WIW posts are always my favorite! I'm so jealous of your chilly weather! We had a tease of cold weather while we were in the mountains last weekend and now we're home and we're back to 85. This has seriously been the never-ending summer down here.

  7. Oh I like that sweater. Damn you Forever 21...

  8. Une belle abeille! You are rocking that sweater, Deena! And I still adore the fur vest and green dress on you!

  9. You have such a fun wardrobe! I love it! That F21 sweater looks so cozy!

  10. I love your style...always. The first look - all dressed up - in the gorgeous green look fabulous on you. You look so chic and hot! xoxo

  11. I have those weeks too often than I would like! And yes to PJ's at work ha. LOVE that bell sleeved sweater and that striped cape so much! They look so cozy!

  12. This whole week is va-va-voom. The cape with the green dress is my FAVE. Gorgeous. I also LOVE that striped cape on you. LOVE. Like, LOVE. Almost bought a different one off modcloth because you sent me on a cape mission.

  13. You look gorgeous in every outfit. And now I want a cape.

  15. #capeobsessed!! For reals! Love all of these, I really love the outfit you put together for the blended blog too!

    Pumps and Push-Ups

  16. The cape and kimono-sleeve sweater are both beautiful pieces and I love the black+tan dress. Great fun Fall looks, Deena. Your smiles shines too!

    Welcome by and join my current brand-new linkup, pretty lady. Thanks, Ada. =)

  17. Super cute fall looks, lady- I love that cozy vest and the striped sweater dress! And I know what you mean when you lay out something, then end up scrapping it the next morning. Been there, for sure!

    Le Stylo Rouge

  18. Well I love all these looks--that cape is so fun! I know what you mean though, I hate it when nothing works like you thought it would.

  19. I love all these looks, especially the green with the leopard!! So cute!

  20. You always look amazing but I totally get how some days, week in this case, are just off and nothing feels right. I love capsule wardrobes but the last one I made for fall I abandoned in two weeks because I just wasn't digging it. You have the best capes and I want a moto jackets so bad but my "want" list is getting quite large.

  21. That mustard bell sleeve sweater is totally you! I also feel the need to get a cape now.

Have a lovely day!

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 …
