Happy Halloween

In honour of Halloween, I am wearing all black. Sometimes when your stuck it is this simplest thing to wear. Throw on some jewellery and you are ready to go! I have attached pics of our two pumpkins we finally got around to carving last night. My husband is in charge and always does an amazing job.

Bright Blazers

I had such a great time yesterday volunteering at my son's school. I was glue gunning like crazy while the kids told me how they wanted to design their drums. My son was super excited to have me there. The funniest moment was when I was sitting on my little chair (at child level) my son was hugging me and said Mommy your hair smells so good, at which point the little girl beside my son said let me smell, she then said "you smell just like my grandma"......mental note, time to change my shampoo!

Having a break from all the browns I have been wearing lately, wore this yellow blazer in the summer with all white and thought I would try it today with some more fall like attire.

Today I am volunteering at my son's school. I am supposed to be helping in art class to make Native American Drums. Not sure what skills I will be able to bring as I am not overly crafty. I just love having the opportunity to see my little man in action at school. He is still at the age where it is super cool for Mommy to show up. I cherish these moments as I know they will not last. I need to wear something comfy since those little chairs where not made for adult comfort.

Maxi Dresses in the Fall

I am still trying to stretch my summer wardrobe as far as it will go. Today it is with my maxi dress. Adding a chunky sweater, jean jacket and boots is a perfect way to transition a summer maxi into the fall. See below for how this dress looks in the summer.

It is Sunday quote day. Given that this week is Halloween and I have already eaten an entire box of Halloween chocolates (I told my husband not to buy them so early as I will end up eating them all) I thought this quote was appropriate.
Enjoy your Sundays!

Mustard & Leopard

Happy Friday! Pulled out my mustard cardigan I bought last winter and decided to pair it with some leopard. I'm pretty happy with the result. Hope everyone has a wonderful week-end.

Boot Season

It is official, I have started to wear boots. I try and see how long I can go without wearing socks / boots because this to me is the start of the dreaded winter season. I will still try and get away with it a few more times before my toes start going numb. This is a dress I bought in the summer (see bottom pic) and I love it, the material is thick enough that it can definitely be worn well into fall and possibly even winter. The boots have got to be my favourite boots. I have worn these more than other boots I own.

I bought this pair of loafers probably about 5 years ago.  I bought them because it literally felt like I was wearing slippers when I put them on. I have probably only worn them maybe 2 times. The reason why, I felt like they didn't just feel like slippers but also looked like slippers. I dug them out again and thought well, who cares if it looks like I'm wearing slippers, at least my feet are comfy.

Casual Layers

I am keeping it super casual today. This grey top is one of the most comfortable tops ever! I threw the plaid over top because as much as I hate to admit it, it is getting cold here. I think the days of double digits are winding down. So from here on it is going to be lots of layers for me.

Girls Night Out

Like everyone else, I often stare into my closet thinking I have nothing to wear. Since I started my blog however, I feel like I can't really say that anymore. All I need to do is look through my "outfits" page to see that I do in fact have a lot to wear. So now it is more a question of what do I wear to......... Saturday nights was, what do I wear to "Girls night Out". Here is what I came up with. I always stick to the basics, jeans, boots, tank and a blazer. Throw on a good statement piece and your good to go.

Sunday Quote...

Had so much fun last night at my Best Friends Birthday. A little tired today with sore feet from dancing and sore cheeks from laughing so much. I love this quote and felt like it was appropriate!

Red, Black and White

The combo of red black and white is so classic and there are so many different ways of combining them. Today it means I get to wear coloured jeans and my striped blazer.
So happy it is Friday!! Tomorrow we are celebrating my friends Birthday with a Girls Night Out! It has been a while since we all went out dancing so I am looking forward to it.
Hope you all have fun plans this week-end.

Deep Fried Mars Bars

Yesterday I had the best dessert a Deep Fried Mars Bar. If you have never tried one of these I strongly recommend it. Now I can only imagine how bad it is for you and how many calories it has in it, but I can tell you it is worth every bite. I won't be learning the recipe because it would be way too tempting to eat them all the time. (there is a pic on my Instagram)! Has anyone else tried this delicious treat?

Planning your Outfits

How do you plan your outfits? I doubt if I am the only one who picks say this new green magnetic bracelet (I bought for my Store but decided to buy one for myself as well) and works the entire outfit around a bracelet. Please tell me I am not the only one who does this. Sometimes it is shoes a shirt or pants but then I get a new bracelet and I want to wear it so I work around it.

Denim on Denim

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving and long week-end.  I ate a LOT, relaxed and spent some time outdoors. The weather was so beautiful other than a bit of rain the sun was shining, the leaves are all turning shades of red, orange and yellow and I reminded just how amazing fall can be. As much as I love summer I do think this time of year is one of the prettiest.
 I can't even remember how old this jacket/shrug is, I have had it forever and probably only worn it a handful of times. It is a dark denim colour but a lighter weight material.
