I haven't done an outfit post in a while. Haven't done a Chic Casual Friday post in a while. Haven't shown off my new Nicole Bridger blazer. So tada! All 3 in one.

Nicole Bridger had a warehouse sale a few weeks ago. I picked up this lovely lined gray blazer. I often find blazers too buttoned up. Not this one. Perfect to layer over some other grey pieces, with a punch of orange, for a casual Friday outfit.

It was also nice enough to pull out the spring flats, and skip the socks.

As the weather gets nicer I anticipate more and more sloppy casual Friday outfits at the office. No flip flops at the office for me. Not appropriate in my mind. But also because I have too many fab Fluevogs waiting to get worn to the office.

  • Blazer: Nicole Bridger
  • Tank: The Loft
  • Pants: Banana Republic
  • Fab Necklace: Plum
  • Shoes: Fluevog

Oh and sorry about the wrinkles. I sit a lot at work.

There was a flurry of social media and online chatter after the Grammy awards about Madonna and Annie Lennox. Both are iconic artists. But the conversation was around who was aging better. And more specifically how Madonna isn't doing it right. Initially, my thoughts were in agreement... Yes, Annie Lennox looked very classy. And Madonna. Not […]

Love it when my footwear selection happens to fit right in with the Italian floor tiles. Fluevog booties seen here at the European influenced new Corbeaux Bakehouse in Calgary. The booties were a fun addition to my tunic and polka dot blouse. The tunic was a great choice as it left lots of room for […]

I take great pride in my personal efforts to own my beauty. To accept and celebrate who I am today. Not who I was. Or who I might become. But me. Today. But I do NOT love  my body. I accept it. I appreciate it. I lean on it. I favor some bits more than others. […]

A few months ago I fell in love with these Rosy Hopeful Fluevog boots, as seen below modelled by my friend Gwen. Casual ankle boots are on my "want" list. I would say "need" but looking at how many pairs of shows are in my closet, I don't think I can make that leap. But […]

On January 14, 2010 I my style blogging adventure. Five years later I am still blogging about my lessons, adventures and evolution in style after 40. The landscape has changed in 5 years. When I started there were only a handful of 40+ style bloggers. Now I am part of a bustling community of ladies […]

This is the time of year I start to empathize with snakes that get to shed their skin – because they get to shed their dry skin all in one go. Whereas I seem to leave a trail of dry skin everywhere I go from November through to March (if I am lucky). My body […]

I hope everyone enjoyed a fabulous holiday. I am enjoying some well deserved downtime with my family. What I love most about a holiday is the chance to do some reading. I finally downloaded the library reading app onto my phone this year. I have what a large phone (Samsung Note) which is a decent size […]

Like many of you I am busy getting ready for Christmas.  As usual, I am trying to avoid the mall as much as possible. I am trying to buy local, buy used, upcycle or DIY. I will admit to making a few visits to the LEGO store and Marshalls. But most of our Christmas is more of the […]

Last week I had a free afternoon to try and do a bit of holiday runaround. I did a few errands and visited the Commercial Street Open House. I picked up a few goodies from Lunapads, some for my stocking, some not. And then I visited Trout & Co, where I had a great chat […]
