The Lumineers

I am excited today as I am going to see the Lumineers tonight. It has been awhile since I have been to a concert so I'm looking forward to hearing some live music.
I have worn this sweater before Here as a more dressy look, but wanted to make it more casual in this outfit. Hope everyone is having a great day.

Colourful Jeans

I had a great week-end in Ottawa with my Brother and his family. The weather seems to have finally broken and Spring might just have finally arrived. I love mixing these jeans with just about anything. I have shown them several times with different options. They are exactly what a pair of colourful jeans should be...multipurpose.

I am a big believer in what you put out into the world is what you will get back! This quote sums that up perfectly. Hope everyone is enjoying their week-ends.

My Office / Closet

I am away this week-end visiting my younger brother and his family. So I thought I would do something a little different today. If you have read my first ever post on this blog then you will know that I converted one of the rooms in our house to my closet / office. I thought I would share a few of my pictures from what is behind all of my blog pictures.

This sits on the top of my window, a rare day of blue sky and sunshine.

Some inspiration (Audrey Hepburn is one of my style icon's)

This sits on a shelf in my bookcase.

Here is my small desk where I do all my work. I had to keep it small as I tend to be a bit of a pack rat so the more desk space I am given the more junk I would collect. My pen holder is a gift my son made me in daycare.

How to Wear a Shrunken Sweater

I know this is a long title, but have you ever had this problem.......you pull out one of your favourite sweaters to wear, only to discover, that either a.) you have grown a few inches taller since you last wore it or b.) I guess you may have thrown it in the dryer the last time you washed it (oops).

Well, here is my solution.....Add a tank top underneath and voila...you can now wear this sweater out without showing off areas that you would rather stay hidden until you are on a beach with a nice tan.

Sweater & Jeans : Super Old (but probably TJ Maxx)

Lego = Chipped Nails

I love having my nails painted, but I have to apologize for all my chipped nails. When you need to dig through many tupperware containers full of lego to find the exact piece your son needs in order to complete the masterpiece he is building, it is cause for a lot of chipped nails.
One of the things I love to do is wear different shades of one colour. Today's colour is green. Add a bit of brown and I feel as though I could blend in quite well in a forrest.

Since I am cold 90% of the time, layers are very important to me. Cardigans and Blazers are my best friends. Below is a simple way to incorporate an extra layer, instead of just a cardigan I have added a blazer on top. As it is technically Spring I only have a tank under this cardigan, however if it was colder out I would most likely have a button up shirt on as well. Really hoping Summer gets here soon so I can start to shed some of these layers.

Most people who know me know that there is nothing "sporty" about me. Now don't get me wrong, I love my Zumba Class, Yoga, Walking and Riding my bike, but that is about it! My husband has been trying to get me to Golf for years and maybe one day I may get there.  So you can imagine my surprise at finding this Adidas sweater in the "sports" section of TJ Maxx. (the closest I will get to shopping in a sports store). Now I am not sure what sport you would play in this sweater but I am happy to have it. Maybe I will wear it to do a little power walking in the mall ......

Go to Outfit

Sometimes you just need an easy "go to" outfit. The one I always go to is a blazer and jeans. Throw on a coloured pair of shoes and you are good to go! I own a whole lot of blazers and a whole lot of jeans so this outfit can definitely be changed up but the basics always remain the same...
Blazer + Jeans + Colourful Shoe = My Go to Outfit

Quote Day

It's Sunday.....so here is my quote of the week. I love this one, a reminder to always look forward. Hope everyone is enjoying their day.

We had such a great time with friends last night. Thai food, live music and pool. Unfortunately the weather has once again taken a turn for the worse. During the day yesterday was a comfortable but rainy 17 degrees and now this morning the wind is howling and we had snow flurries, it is sitting around 2 degrees. This weather makes it very challenging to get dressed. My favourite option is always a little jacket. This one is really old but I have worn it over and over and it always does the trick.

The pictures unfortunately do not truly capture the colour of this top. It is one of my favourite - dark green. It also has pockets! Not sure why pockets are always such a bonus, I just get so excited when I find them in unexpected places. Yesterday's trip to the psychic was a lot of fun. I have seen this women 3 other times over the past 5 years and she has remained consistent with what she has told me every time I go! Happy Friday.

Today I am going to see a Psychic. Now I know that the majority of people do not believe in psychic's, I  have visited a few in my life and of course there are some that have no clue and I'm pretty sure they are just trying to make a buck. I do however, believe that some people have abilities that we may not all understand. My personal experiences have been pretty hard to explain. I have been told things that no one would ever know. Many years before I met my husband I was told I would date three dark haired men before I met a light haired man who would be my husband. 10 years and three boyfriends (all dark haired) later, I met my husband (he was wearing exactly what she told me he would be). I am a pretty open minded person to many things so when two of my girlfriends are spending the day together to visit a psychic and have lunch I am definitely joining them.
