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:

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 …

SHE who influences me

For Mother's Day I went for a pedicure date with my Lucy and sitting across from us was a 4 generational family of women also celebrating a day for Mothers.  As I sat there listening to the easy banter and pride going back and forth between the Grandma and Granddaughter, I couldn't help but be sad for our family, as our Grandmothers are no longer around.  And I felt even sadder for Lucia, who absolutely adored her Grams.

I couldn't help but be brought into the conversation that the Grandma was having with the aesthetician as she was sharing her memories of growing up: rumpus room parties with friends, the nights out dancing, all the self-sufficient farming and playing cards. It reminded me so much of how Grandma would tell stories about her youth and it made me grateful that we did have a lot of that down on paper so if I really wanted to delve into her narrative, I could.  But the whole hour left me feeling very nostalgic and empty.

I guess I shouldn't say empty, be…
