British Casual Weekend

Now I am ready for the British Countryside. I left my heels & blazer in the closet and got my boots & sweater (Hunters would be perfect but I don’t own a pair). Yesterday I played around with my clothes, showing slight variations of an outfit till I got it just right. I think most [Read more…]

British Casual Fridays

I don’t know where the title came from, I just feel very British. Like I need to be in the country or something, at Downton. Except without the heels. With the heels I think this is a great look for the office on a Friday or running around doing errands and then going for lunch [Read more…]

Farmer's Wife

I was going to call this post “Farmer’s Daughter” but I’m too old to be the “daughter”. I’m the wife, I’ve got the kids to prove it. Plus the whole age thing. My daughter had an ear infection and I needed to go shopping for Thanksgiving dinner. Casual chic it was. This post is for [Read more…]

Cheap and Cheerful - Joe Fresh

This was not planned, I just ended up wearing all Joe Fresh. Don’t have to spend a million bucks to look it. I don’t have time to yammer on like usual, this weekend is Canadian Thanksgiving and I’m hosting and I have not even begun my food shopping. No judgements here, I’m playing my “I [Read more…]

A friend/fan wanted me to post some does/don’ts when dressing. It’s a great idea and my mind started running on does and don’ts and I just couldn’t figure out where to start. Then my mind started to wander on to other topics and the one thing that stuck was the word “BRA”. Why? Because undergarments [Read more…]

I have told you that I’ve needed some inspiration so I went to my favourite tool, Pinterest, to find something to get my clothing mojo going.

Stepford Wife

Sometimes I get into these moods when I’m picking out my clothes, I pick out a uniform or a costume. Today I am channelling my inner Stepford wife. I love this cardigan from H&M (not a big fan of their disposable fashion, it goes back to fit and being six feet tall), its part or [Read more…]

Black White & Leopard

I have been feeling wardrobe blah. I am not saying I have nothing to wear. I’m just overwhelmed, underwhelmed, don’t know where to start lately type of mood.
