Wednesday Fashion Files

Sometimes I have ideas.  Actually scratch that. All the time I have ideas. A million ideas zoom through my brain in a day, some make it, some don't...some are forgotten before I can work through them.  This month's Fashion link up on the Blended Blog is one of those ideas and it came from the fact that I like copying people. Or I like taking someone's personal style and making it my own.  So our theme is what inspires you and you can head over the post on the Blended Blog to see one of the two outfits I put together this week.  Yes, that's right,  went from being lost in blogland to doing more than I normally would in a week. But whatevs, I'm wearing clothes and that's a good thing. Husband will likely disagree.


So I have this Pinterest board going of random outfits that I have really wanted to recreate, you should check it out...there are tons of familiar faces on it and I thought I'd start today with this hot momma that I get to hug in 15 days from now. I picked this picture because this is basically my everyday outfit and it was easy.

I'd go into the outfit deets but it's late and my wine is calling me.  Also, everything is old and likely can't be linked anyway.  I can tell you where they're from (I have a weird memory that way- ask me where I got any piece and I can name store and possibly even time frame....ask me what I was going to get when I went downstairs to get something and I don't have a freaking clue)....right. So the outfit.  Sunglasses from Simons.  Those are new. I should find them because I love them and you will too.  Graphic Tee from a random online shop that I can't remember.  Black vest from RW.  Jeans from Express.   Adidas Superstars from everywhere, you should get a pair or 8. I love the green or the gold ones going around right meow.

This is actually what I wore the day I took those pictures, that vest and graphic tee are under this fun jacket and I had swapped out my Superstars for these oxfords because I had to go for an adventure on the 60 acres to find the ideal location to put a house.  Pretty loafers and fun coats are not conducive to walking in manure. In case you were wondering.

Have a great day! Fashion posts go here:

on Tracy.

I've had some time over the past couple days to take a walk back through my life while revisiting all the photos and remembering old moments. It has become a part of the process I need in order to say good-bye- it's almost like I relive my life through my memories of who that person was to me so that I can fully understand the impact they had on my life.  
On Sunday heaven gained a shining star: our cousin, Tracy, passed away unexpectedly.  Tracy was young, she was vibrant, she was a creator, a dreamer, a free-spirit.  Her death is still a shock and it leaves such a huge hole in many lives.
Growing up, Tracy was that older cousin I always looked up to.  She was stuck babysitting me while I was busy admiring her gorgeous thick, curly hair, her social butterfly status and determined confidence.  I have so many memories from our frequent visits to Edmonton to hang out with my cool, older cousins. All three of them (Tracy has two older sisters- Tisa and Glenna) were the perfect f…

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…
