I bought a black and white wrap sundress at Plum, from their summer sale. I wore it to the church picnic.  When I look at the pictures I'm not sure I love this dress on me, but it was certainly comfortable while running after my little monkey.  Dress - Plum Tank - The Loft Hat […]

Last week Sweet Spot posted a video with 3 ways to take your vintage scarfs and re-purpose them as other accessories.  Well I fell in love with their scarf cuff idea.  I love wearing cuffs or bracelets to jazz up an outfit. But I don't own a lot of bracelets and can't afford to be spending a lot of […]

I've been trying to organize a capsule wardrobe to take to Blogher in my head for a week now.  And I keep failing miserably.  The trip includes about 5 days of driving in our Traverse and 2.5 days of a blogging conference. At the conference there will be a lot of walking and  there will be lots […]

Last month I was invited to a fashion show at the new eco-friendly Nicole Bridger store on West 4th. But my little guy was sick so I wasn't able to make it. Thankfully they made a video of the event. My regular readers know how much I like Nicole's sustainable designs. But I also love […]

Last week I made the trek to West Vancouver to check out the new digs for Urban Mommies - so jealous of her view out to the Marina. It was a bit of a mix mash of a day for me with a Board of Trade networking event at lunch and then the party at […]

Update - Had a little issue on the blog yesterday and had to fix with the back-up from the day before. So I had to re-post this post from yesterday. So I clearly did not plan out my June and July blog content very well. Our daycare provider went on holiday and things got busy […]
