Miss me? I went shopping after work last night with Mom - our annual outing where I buy her a birthday outfit and then we go for dinner. We had a great time and found her a lovely jacket (Talbots) and top (from The Bay) and some hoop earrings (Reitman's), then we went to a brewpub down on the harbour for a fabulous dinner. After a pint of wheat beer, a special coffee, and then having some wine with L when I got home, I was worn out, so today here's yesterday and today's outfits.
But one more thing: Happy Birthday, Mom!
I won't say how old she is (she'd kill me), but she was very young when she had me.
This outfit features another "fresh" item for the May capsule: the first wear of my Desigual t-shirt dress. I've worn this a few times since I bought in the winter, and I've been looking forward to wearing it in the warmer weather. I last wore it here.
I layered a turquoise cami (not in the capsule) under it for less cleavage.here), as do my awesomely awesome Fluevogs (last seen here, 2nd outfit).
I get a lot of comments on these when I wear them.
Dress (Desigual), cami (Esprit), cardigan (Kersh, consignment), shoes (Guide Prepares, Fluevog), wrist-wrap (Shi Studios).
Today, I did two "fresh" items that are getting their first wear:
here (2nd outfit). I love the feel of it - it's very soft and nicely warm and I like the t-shirt style of it...but I don't think it's that flattering on me overall. Too boxy.
Although it's early, this may not make the cut when I assess this month's capsule items. It was only $3.25, so I won't be too heartbroken to see it go. Maybe I'll just wear it around the house.
here (which, oddly is the same link as the sweater, although I didn't wear them together). I love these cowboy boots - they are just the right height on my leg. I last wore a week ago, here.
Sweater (Guess Jeans USA, thrifted), skirt (Smart Set, thrifted), boots (Two Roads, consignment), belt/buckle (Shi Studio), airplane cuff (Catalyst Reaction Leather), gears cuff (SkinzNHydez), skinny wrap (Club Monaco), earrings (Plum).
I did pick up a couple of things for myself while Mom and I were shopping. These awesome turquoise denim capris are from Reitman's:
I also checked out the sales at Club Monaco. They have some deep discounts on their accessories right now. I found this awesome rhinestone snake bracelet:
I fell in love with this crazy metallic scarf:
What I paid:
Because this is the regular price:
In other news: I got my 10K medal! I got a silver.
Have a great weekend!
