Photo Friday: Celebrations, Big & Small

Last weekend I had several feats to celebrate: Canada winning gold on Sunday morning (I cheered too since the USA was done-zo), discovering a Zara dress that sold out much too quickly on Ebay, & my father-in-law's birthday party last Sunday afternoon. I can't believe it's the last day of February; it has literally flown by & at the same time, been so memorable... 

Olympic themed cups of Sparkling white grape juice (idea borrowed from here) for the Gold medal game @ 7AM
Zara lace & leather dress via Ebay
What I wore to the birthday celebration, including my Hipanema bracelet
Party essentials stored outdoors (which means it's still too flippin' cold out)
Surf & Turf was on the menu for the birthday boy
Dirty drunken shrimp & king crab legs
A very special birthday cake, proceeds benefiting cancer research

Happy Weekend!

A Jeweled Collar

A much different form of outfit posting for me, but it was all I could think to do with the unwelcomed polar vortex back in action. I couldn't resist this sweater, the detachable collar being the main selling point.  I can't wait to pair it with shorts & silver sandals, if/when spring ever arrives...

Inspiration: City Life

I'm feeling a little unlucky in the planning department lately.  I wanted to head to Chicago (my former home & favorite city I have visited) for a few pre-wedding festivities for one of my oldest friends.  Plans changed, however, once life got in the way.  Here's a little inspiration I've had saved on my desktop...

Slow Down

Sometimes I'm so busy rushing around, attempting to accomplish what feels like a million tasks in a short amount of time, that I don't make a point to just slow down & focus on the little things.  Little things like a dose of afternoon sunshine on a cold winter's day...

Powder Pink

A powder pink peplum top that can't be happy being layered over a turtleneck.  Remember what I said about winter coming in waves this year? This continues to hold true, we've returned to negative temperatures & gusts of icy wind.  Be prepared for some brightly colored outfits sooner than later, I'm officially over winter...
