Happy Easter

Happy Easter Week-end Everyone! Im enjoying the long week-end with family. One colour I really do not wear is yellow. I probably only have one or two things with yellow in it. It is another colour I was always told I couldn't wear due to my colouring. I have decided to ignore all that and enjoy this bright happy colour.

Boot Weather

Yes, I had to pull out my boots again yesterday. Sunday we were out in the garden and it was a beautiful 23 degrees, Monday is was a warm windy 22 degrees, Yesterday I woke up to this (see pic below). How in the world does it go from 22 degrees to 2 degrees and snowing! To say I was not happy is putting it mildly. All this when I had just pulled out my open toed heels. UG! I so need to move to somewhere tropical.

Navy and Tan

The weather has been so nice the past few days, so I am going to pretend I do not see 2 degrees and flurries for Tuesday on the weather network. Happy Monday!

Happy Birthday Dad!

It's Friday!! I am so looking forward to the week-end. More importantly, today is my Dad's Birthday. He is the reason why I am the best bargain shopper ever, am not afraid to stand up for myself,  have such high expectations for my husband, have a strong work ethic, am a wee bit stubborn and am loyal  to those I love. Thanks for being the best Dad ever!

Red Blazer

I have been on the hunt for a red blazer for a long time and I am so happy I finally found one. One of my favourite colour combo's has to be, black, white and red. On Saturday night when my friend and I went out we both showed up in different combo's of black, white and red. Great minds think alike.

Military Look

Happy Monday! This dress definitely feels very military to me. I love this colour green and style of dress. It is very easy to wear. I think the weather has finally taken a turn, yesterday I sat outside on our deck and read a magazine while soaking up some much needed sun. There was however, very close to my feet, a patch of lingering snow. My husband couldn't take it anymore and shovelled it up and threw it on the grass. Finally Spring is here.

Be You...

I have had such a fun and busy week-end. Lots of great laughs with friends. One thing about getting older as a woman I truly believe that you find yourself, are way more comfortable in your own skin and know what matters and what doesn't. When I came across this quote it fit perfectly.
Enjoy the rest of your week-ends.

Hearts

You could say I love to wear my heart on my sleeve, and you would be right. Literally. I am a sucker for anything with a heart on it, so when I saw this blouse I knew it had to be mine. Blue and green are such a great combo, the best part I bought this belt 2 years ago and it matches perfectly!
Happy Friday, enjoy your week-ends!

Leopard Skirt

I have only worn this leopard skirt one other time in the winter (see pic below). It is a perfect example of an item of clothing you can wear all year round. Below is my spring version and in the summer I plan on loosing the nylons and adding a cute tee. Which look do you prefer?

Houndstooth

Happy Monday! I am slowly transitioning into spring attire. This hopefully means I do not have to wear boots anymore and can also go sock-less. If ever in doubt of what to wear, black and white is always a good idea.

Quote Day

Happy Sunday. The sun is shining and it is getting warmer (slowly). I think I am going to go out back and shovel the snow off my deck and throw it over the fence onto the sidewalk, there is just a little left and this way it will actually start to look like spring.
Love this quote today, I couldn't agree more.

Neutrals

All dressed in a monochromatic look today. Nothing better than a good neutral colour, not to mention a graphic sweater, throw in a dash of colour and your outfit is ready to go. Happy Friday everyone, fingers crossed that the temperature is going to get into the positive numbers this week-end!

Stripes & Comfy Shoes

I have spent years trying to find comfy heels. I think I have finally found a pair. It was a total fluke as I went into Ecco with my husband, he wanted to buy golf shoes and I usually don't go into this store but thought I would tag along. When I spotted these dark brown heels (pretty sure they were the only heels in the store) I decided to try them on. They were / are so comfy! Hopefully I feel the same way by the end of the day.

Michael Kors

It is no secret that I am a big fan of Michael Kors. I love the new colours that are out and fell in love with this tangerine one as soon as I saw it. I feel like it is a slap in the face to winter, take that cold dull colours it is spring time! Now if only the temperature would go up beyond negative numbers.

Black Pants

This sweater is new and I love it so much. Not sure the pictures do it justice, it is a beautiful burgundy colour with flecks of gold. In fact I loved it so much I bought it in black as well!
If I had to choose one item that is a must for work it would have to be a pair of black pants. They go with every colour and style of top and can be dressed up or down. I lucked out and found this pair a while ago. Happy Friday, hope you all have a wonderful week-end.

Polka Dot Scarves

One of the very few things I like about cold weather is being able to wear scarves. My collection is too large to talk about and I probably did not need to add yet another one. I couldn't however resist when I found this amazing soft grey polka dot one! So what are the other things I like about cold weather? Boots, hot chocolate and flannel sheets.
