Blues

I busted out some eyeshadow today that I haven't worn since I left work. I love these colors so I think they'll be moved to the top of my makeup pile. Oddly, you can't see that I'm even wearing them. Photo editing fail, I shouldn't have used the "polaroid" preset.

Anyway, my daughters social life is much more exciting then mine. We're headed to another 1st birthday party today for one of her little buddies. Fun!

new! boots!

I have had my eye on THESE Sam Edelman boots for MONTHS. They went on sale on the website Little Burgundy Shoes after Christmas and have slowly dropped in price as time has passed. Unfortunately I missed out on the black ones as they sold out a little while ago, but then I saw them in person in Montreal last weekend I knew I had to finally get a pair. I got them in brown for $84.99, formerly $230. They are awesome. I like that they look narrow and not bulky. I now finally own a "normal" pair of booties (without studs, spikes, a big wedge etc.).

new fluevogs

Is it nuts that I love THESE new Fluevog clogs?




friday at the office






A typical, kind of boring outfit that most pieces you've seen on here several times. But it's comfy and it was a long crazy day at work so just what I needed.

spending freeze

This month is going to be my first attempt EVER to not buy any clothes. I will  be needing a whole new spring/summer wardrobe as I've lost quite a bit of weight since last summer so i'm holding off till April. I'll need to be creative with what I have, but I'm up for the challenge!

Oops, I spy a pink tea party plate!

new boots

I'm wearing this again today so no point in taking pics.
We packed the kid up and went to the mall last night to get my husband a few last minute things for a bachelor party weekend trip to Vegas. I walked past the super cheap Verona shoe store and thought, heck, why not. I could use another pair of synthetic boots. Especially ones with poorly stitched seams and crappy soles.
I don't know why I do these things.

wednesday at the office

It was a really REALLY shitty day at the office. My team, most of whom I've been working with for several years now, is being split up and no one seems to be able to give us a valid reason for this "divorce" as my director called it. It's crap and thankfully I wore my bunny shirt which made our official last day together a bit more bearable. So did the many drinks I had.







Blazer: Urban Outfitters
Bunny Blouse: H&M

color

Oh my, not one item of black on today! Mother nature is sending us another "eff you" tomorrow by way of 20 more cm of snow so I'm sure this cheery, colorful mood of mine won't last.






Sweater: Old Navy (scarf too...it's old)

montreal finds

Jen blogged her Montreal finds, and now here are mine. Considering everything I bought except one piece was purchased at H&M, I'd say it would be REALLY AWESOME if Ottawa finally got a goddamn H&M. After many years of us bitching and complaining, we eventually got F21, Urban Outfitters and Zara...so where in the f*ck is H&M already?!?! Anyhoo, here is what I bought...too much to put all on the main page so the rest is after the jump. (I don't know what's up with their website but a bunch of the stuff I bought isn't on it).

the only non-H&M piece - from Simons on sale for $20

can't find this one - $20 (it's a very pale pink with navy)

can't find this t-shirt - $15

Blouse (this black polka dot isn't on the site)



can't find this navy blazer - $60

tuesday at the office

I had room in my backpack to bring my camera....but I forgot I had taken the memory card out of it. *&^%!!!!







Sweater: Club Monaco (old, and still one of my favs)
Tank: Gap (i think)
Jeans: Citizens of Humanity Avelon slick skinny leg jeans via Holt Renfrew
Booties: SOOO love these. Jeffrey Campbell's Dino via Solestruck
Jewelry: Forever 21 bracelet and necklace

Birds

This bird tee is going to be seen frequently on this lil blog. I'm LOVING it.

I'm aware that it's a no-no, but I think I'm going to have to start hanging most of my sweaters. The wrinkles are ridiculous, and most, like this wrap sweater, are impossible to properly fold. Wow, I'm loving how this is my biggest problem today.

Also, I'm thinking of taking a basic photography course, 'cause I'm pretty bad at it. I just bought a $300 lens and can barely get a focused picture.
