My husband and son headed off on a Beaver Scout's camping trip earlier this month. I was left to my own devices. What did I do? I headed off to the Nicole Bridge warehouse sale of course! I picked up a great purple dress, a black cardigan, peach t-shirt and some much needed underwear. I […]

Last Thursday I had a busy work day with several meetings and then an after work blogger event. The Parent Bloggers Unite event was scheduled at a mall, but was not a fashion related event. So I was a bit nervous that my professional attire might make me overdressed. So I added a jean jacket to […]

I thought it was about time I posted a Chic Casual Friday outfit again. As mentioned in my Nothing New November post, I bought a great coat at the Jacqueline Conoir Sale in August. It has been my go-to fall coat. And while I am wearing it on a Sunday in the photos below, it […]

Last June I started working in an office full time again. It has taken me a while to adjust to wearing professional clothes 5 days a week. And I will be honest I am probably a bit dressier in my attire than many others in my office. But on Fridays I have started adding a […]

I hope all my Canadian friends are enjoying this Canada Day Long weekend. For those experiencing the heat wave stay cool. And if that isn't possible then keep the cold beverages coming (preferably with an umbrella in it). Nicole Bridger held a warehouse sale a few weeks ago. I came home with this great silk […]

While writing my Spring Trends series I did a lot of thinking about what is on my spring shopping list. Originally, due to current budget situations, I had no list. Well I had a list of one - Motorcycle Jacket. Which I have been scanning thrift and vintage shops for since late last year. But […]

Part 4 of 4 in a Series on Spring Trends I am still rather new to the neutrals party. For many years neutral to me was black. In the past few years I have expanded into greys (loving charcoal grey) and olive green. I am still not someone who wears a lot of browns, tans […]

Part 3 of 4 in a Series on Spring Trends. Florals, dots, stripes, tribal, graphic and more patterns on all over the stores this spring. And we aren't just wearing them alone. We are mixing them together. One of my favourite parts of spring and summer is dresses. So easy to get dressed in the […]

The weather has been spectacular in Vancouver for the past week.  With a short week for Easter combined with Spring Break, I only had 2 days in the office last week. On both of those days I mixed it up in different ways. Mixing Solids The first was mixing colour. I layered two different purples, […]
