I love having both Friday and Monday off for the Easter weekend; at my old job, I had to work on the Monday and that always sucked.
On Saturday, I went to my WW meeting.
This is the first wear of my favourite easy-wash fuscia blouse for the April capsule (last worn here), and this is the third wearing of this cotton Noa Noa skirt (last worn here, and first worn here in one of my favourite outfits).
Wore my jean jacket for a bit of warmth, plus added my Smoking Lily chartreuse and pink spore scarf.
I was out shopping with Elaine a couple of months ago and she tried them on and ended up buying them, with my encouragement. She had buyer's regret later and was going to take them back, but by then I was kicking myself for not buying them myself, so I offered to pay her for them. Hence, new-to-me.

A better look at the shoes:
here and here). They were excellent for shopping: after 4 hours, my feet were only a little sore, with a bit of rubbing on one heel. They will break in nicely.
Nice colour, eh?
Blouse (Esprit, consignment), skirt (Noa Noa), belt (consignment), jean jacket (Ann Taylor Loft), shoes (Pearl Hart, Bellevues, Fluevog).
On Sunday, we went over to Mom's for Easter lunch. It's always cool to see all my nieces together, and my brother, his ex and his girlfriend.
I went pretty casual:
Hama Hama top.
This is the first appearance of this awesome denim maxi skirt in this month's capsule.
here. Considering I only paid $9.50 for it (on sale, on consignment), and I've worn it over 6 times, I'm sure getting my money's worth out of it.
I'm wearing my lavender Campers that I bought in Vancouver a couple of weeks ago. They are supremely comfortable, and I'm thinking, "Lavender is the new neutral!"
My lovely bub Inigo came in for a photo-bomb:
I'm leery of picking him up due to the fluid in his chest, but I can't resist how he pushes his head against mine.
Top (Smoking Lily), skirt (InWear, consignment), shoes (Camper).
Today, L and I walked to town in the sun (it felt so good), got groceries and went for brunch.
Visible Monday - get on over to Patti's!
This is the top I wore under the cardigan here, but it couldn't be seen.
I last wore the denim skirt Saturday, and same with the shoes (and they were awesome for walking to and from town). I wore my white leather jacket.
Jacket (Le Chateau, consignment), t-shirt (INC, consignment), skirt (InWear, consignment), shoes (Campers).
[beware, sad stuff ahead]
We didn't really do much this weekend, as we wanted to spend time with Inigo. He went for his 4th chest-tap on Saturday afternoon and we talked to our vet...it's not good. He's developed edema in his chest cavity, and he's not getting much time between the taps where he's normal and active. He's not responding to the medication, even after an increase, and his breathing is getting worse. With heavy hearts, we have made the appointment for his last trip to the vet.
L and I are trying to give him as much love and care as we can for his last few days.
