dinner date

My hubby and I went to dinner last night at the Back Lane Café (see food/décor pics here) and here is what I wore, with outfit specifically chosen so I could take my new neon pumps out for a spin.

long weekend

Pardon my absence yesterday, I was dealing with a sick baby, and many loads of laundry due to massive amounts of puke on my bed. I had no idea the stomach of an 18 month old could hold that much. Fun times. Thankfully, my husband's home for four whole days so the weekend is bound to end up being a whole lot better then it started. We have a huge to-do list and will be heading up to our cottage for a day, so you won't be hearing much from me unless somehow I find an extra hour hidden in the days.

Hope you have a great Easter weekend!

new shoes!

Last week I blogged some really cute flats from Aldo. I went ahead and ordered myself a black/tan pair because they are the PERFECT shoe for work (or anywhere) and when my toes are not ready for public viewing.  And they were only $70!

thursday at the office

I'm not sure what's up with the grump-ass face in the first photo but it's likely because I have the sound off on my camera so I have no clue when my sister is snapping pics. That and I forgot my memory card so she only managed to get about 5 on internal memory before it was full. I felt like I needed to 'splain myself cause I hate that face. Must. Smile. More.

presents

We had a pyjama party at a friends house this morning so obviously there's no outfit post today.  Instead I thought I'd share some of the amazing presents my parents brought back from Mexico for Gia and I.

For me:
An awesome Levi's sweatshirt (same as the one Kim was wearing yesterday).
From Sfera, a blue cardi and an awesome necklace. It looks heavy but is actually really light and I'm happy to have a new piece of chunky jewellry.
I'm not sure where they found the leather bracelet; all 3 of us sisters got matching ones.






For Gia: 
An adorable bracelet from Filipe, the beach vendor who we've been buying from for 12 years. It has removable links so it should fit her for a while. I'm not sure where they found the wool sweater, but it is so thick and soft and will be perfect for cool mornings at the cottage.

tuesday at the office

pants ~ Citizens of Humanity Ava low rise straight leg pants via Aritzia
booties ~ Jeffrey Campbell Rumble via Little Burgundy Shoes
belt ~ Gap
necklace ~ had it since i was born, with charms Italian kids get every religious event 

no bling

It seems that I've forgotten all about accessories the last few days, with the exception of my watch and wedding rings. Maybe I'd remember if I finally got around to creating the jewelry peg board I've been wanting for months. The supplies are all sitting in a nice pile in the basement screaming for my attention. But its beside the washer and dryer, and the laundry seems to win every time I have a spare minute.
