Dress 70: Pardon The Lunacy Of This Unhappy Camper

Cardi – H&M; Shirt – from Mom; Dress – F21

Seriously!  What is up with the weather here??? Spring was well on it’s way with sunshine and warm breezes and all of a sudden we have flurries and weather in the negative degrees celsius.  I am not a happy camper.  

I’m also very tired today, so pardon the raving lunacy.

That’s it.  I’m done for today.  Better stop writing before I say something stark raving mad.

See y’all tomorrow!

Dress 61: Playing With Patterns

Cardi – Costa Blanca; Dress – Ruche; Tights – from Poland; Boots – Ruche

I promised you I would do better today.  And I think I have.  Just the fact that I got dressed in clean clothes today….ha!

I’ve stopped asking whether I should trash, stash, or save.  ‘Cause frankly, I can’t bear to part with any of them.  But your opinion is always welcome if you see one that is just a big ‘NO’. Please do let me know.  We all need that honest person to come up and say, “Honey, that’s not doin’ it today, you know?”   At least, I appreciate such blunt honesty.

I’m loving mixing patterns right now.  I used to be so scared of it, for fear of getting it wrong, but now I’m just having fun with it and playing.  And it is so much fun to play!

Oh, and I’m going for a haircut on Sunday.  Time to clean this mess up!

Dress 51: St.Patty`s Day

Here’s a clean, crisp shot of the dress.  *notice the bad hair day*
Husband got some candid shots of me…I’m loving the awkward shots of me lately.

Jacket – F21; Sweater – clothing swap; Dress – Ruche; Leggings – F21; Boots – Feet First.

It was 13 degrees outside today!!!  Yay!  I wore a light jacket and didn’t freeze my behind off.  Spring has arrived.  I can’t wait until it gets even warmer.

Today’s dress is a fairly recent dress from Ruche and I absolutely love it.  However, I didn’t get to wear it around for too long as Baby decided to grace it with her spit up.  Oh well, at least I was pretty for part of my day.  Trash, stash, or save?  Save!  I love the aplique detail.  *I’m noticing that I’m not trashing a lot of dresses…I guess I just can’t bear to part with any of them*

And sorry, no green today for St. Patrick’s Day.  I love the Irish, but I hate wearing green.  But here’s to the Irish!  Cheers!

Dress 46: Casual Coffee

Sweater – Gap; Scarf – Jacob; Dress – ??

This is my version of a jeans and t-shirt/sweater day – casual and easy.  I know I’ve been giving you a lot of casual outfits, and what can I tell ya, I’m a casual girl.  *Not in that sense! Get your mind out of the gutter!* I’ve also had a rough night and a rough morning, so I needed the bright color to pep me up…at least a little.

And I’m surviving an emergency right now.  
*Pause for dramatic effect*
There’s no coffee in house!  
NOOOooooooooooo!
Thank goodness I have a good friend who’s bringing me coffee right now. 
Seriously.
She’s on the bus right now.

P.S.  My battery died so these pics were taken with my older and crappier camera…sorry.  You’ll forgive me woncha?

Dress 31: Stepping Out Stepford

My photographer makes me laugh!

Dress – H&M; Cardigan – Esprit

Bag – Matt by Matt&Nat; Tights – Hue; Shoes – Clarks

Hey all, hope your day has been as fun as mine.  I got a run in today and went to a really fun audition.  It’s for the lead and supporting role in an indie feature film (yes, I auditioned for both roles) and it was so much fun to go in an play.

But even better?  The weather was warm – and I use that term loosely.  It wasn’t shorts and t-shirt weather, but it was warm enough that I wore my tweed coat and no hat.  So that’s warm!

This dress is a cute little one from H&M that I picked up while pregnant for super cheap.  I couldn’t wear it then, but now I can!  Yay!  I’m liking it.  I think you’re going to see a lot more of it…once the challenge is done of course.  Trash, stash, or save?  I’m thinkin’ save! 

True Story:  Husband called this look “very Stepford.”  And I told him it was appropriate because I was auditioning to play a Stepford-esque psychopath.  He said, “Well, you look it.”  Now did he mean….Stepford or psychopath????

Dress 25: Too Much Chocolate Is Good For The Soul

Cardigan – Gap; Dress – F21; Leggings – H&M; Boots – F21

Today…hmm what do I say?  
There’s a lot I could say.
But I won’t.

Let’s talk about this: 

I’ve lived in Toronto for over a decade…so I know it well.  Today on my way to an audition, I went the wrong way on the subway….twice.  Yup, that’s right folks.  Aren’t I spectacular?  I think so.

I did have far too much chocolate this afternoon…yippee!

But I hear ya, onto the dress already lady.

When I bought this little number I was attracted to the stripes and not too sure about the cut.  But as I’ve worn it, I’ve fallen in love with how easy it is to wear.  It’s one of those dresses that you wear on your off days because it’s forgiving, you can eat as much as you like in it, and you still look kinda cute.  Am I right?  But I’d love your opinion on it.  Trash, stash, or save?

Do you have a piece like that?  I’d love it if you sent me an email of yourself wearing it!

Dress 20: Are You A Stripe Girl?

Drake the Dog loves the snow!
A shot of the dress itself.
Dress – Dear Creatures; Sweater – Tommy Hilfiger; Belt – part of the dress; Boots – F21; Leggings – F21    

I promised you a dress today, and here it is.  It’s cold outside and of course Drake the Dog wants to be frolicking out there!  And of course he just needs to get in the shot.  The dress is a fairly recent purchase and it’s really fun to wear.  I’m not usually one for the stripes, but I really like it on this dress for some reason. 

Are you a stripe girl?  What’s one thing that you don’t usually wear: animal prints, gold, stripes, patterns, etc?  I’d love to hear your thoughts.

As always I want to hear your opinion: trash, stash, or save?

Dress 19: To Grandmother’s House We Go

Dress – from Poland; Sweater – F21

Husband pointed out that my ladies are out in full force today!

I’ve been noticing that a lot of my posts lack jewellery and such.  The reason is simple – I can’t wear those things with a young baby unless it’s when I’m headed right out the door to work or an audition.  Around Baby it’s just impractical to wear earrings and necklaces unless I want them broken or, worse still, Baby choking on them.  So, I have started counting on my wardrobe to fill in the missing pieces of interest.  Patterns, and the mixing of those patterns has picked up the slack.  I’m not huge on jewellery anyway.  Usually it’s one large piece or two smaller pieces.  So, I’m not missing it that much.  But it’s sad when you get excited because you get to wear earrings!

Husband is headed out of town on a business trip, so Baby and I are headed to my Mom’s house.  We’ll be chillin’ with my Mom and Babcia.  Which means at some point I’m going to beat them at cards!

Dress 15: When is Enough, Enough?

Making faces at Baby

Dress – Jacob; Cardigan – H&M; Scarf – Jacob; Belt – ?

So Casa Joanna is still sick.  I thought we were getting over it but no such luck.  Worst thing ever?  Baby is so stuffed up she can’t breath through her nose when she’s lying down.  Which means that I spent the entire night holding her in a reclining position so she could sleep…which means that I slept only 2 1/2 hours. Later in the morning Husband took her and I got another 2 hours.  So yeah, you can imagine how I’m feeling.  WHen is this cold going to end??

She’s been sucky and whining/crying all day because she’s over-tired and can’t sleep.  I’m just getting a break right now because I put her in her stroller, bundled her up, and took her for a 10 minute walk to get her to sleep.  Currently, she’s in the sun room tucked into her stroller. 

Needless to say, clothes were not the first thing on my mind.  But this dress is a relaxed boatneck dress that I purchsed used when pregnant.  Now though I think the top is too big for me.  Again, this is another dress I don’t know how I feel about.  Trash, stash, or save?
