Hey, another weekend is nearly over - feels like it's just begun!
Our Ultimate Frisbee season started Saturday morning - I love playing and running around in the sun, which did come out for us. Unfortunately, it was rather windy.

When we finish playing, I wipe myself down and change back into this so that I look nice when we go for lunch after. My make-up was a little smooshed, but I carry a little bag of stuff to tidy myself back up after I've gotten all sweaty.
Anyway, some of you may recognize most of this outfit as being the Favourite Outfit of the Year from the capsule challenge (worn here). This is the first time wearing this Smoking Lily dress again since then, I think.

Dress and obi (Smoking Lily), earrings (locally made), shoes (Prepare Guides, Fluevogs).
After a 2 hour nap in the afternoon, I wanted to put on comfy clothes and chill. We met up with another couple at our local pub, and then had them over to our place for some board games. I really didn't want anything binding or constricting, so I totally went for comfort.

I'm linking this outfit up to "Visible Monday" at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style. Go check it out!
The skirt is new-to-me and I've been sitting on it for a while, wondering how to wear it. I thrifted it for $6.00 back here in September, and hemmed and hawed about it then as well. I never did end up wearing it as a layering piece under a long skirt.
I wore my new-to-me obi (it's a soft cotton t-shirt knit) over it all to give a bit of definition.
here with my Smoking Lily greyhounds tee, in February. Spring is a real season here - the weather is quite variable (I wore a coat over this outfit), and it can be cold and rainy one minute and sunny and warm the next.
I would like more sunny and warm, please!
We don't wear shoes in the house, so I had to make sure I didn't have ugly sport socks on when I took my boots off at home.
Hee, kitty socks!

Although it's not called that, we refer to our neighbourhood pub as "The Winchester" - our friends knew that and bought us this awesome cross-stitch:

Recognize the quote? It's from "Shaun of the Dead", one of our favourite movies. Hee!
Today was another breezy day. I walked to get groceries and then went to the thrift boutique for a browse.
The skirt is new-to-me, bought on consignment back here in March for $30.00. It was maybe a bit cool to do bare legs with this, but I really wanted my swooshiness to go to 11.
here with bright coral and florals.
Cardigan (Kersh, consignment), top (Ellen Tracy, swap from Caro), skirt (Lapis, consignment), shoes (Chie Mihara).
I found a couple of good things while out thrifting, including two new shirts for L.
I got this awesome brown crackle-finish leather coat:
It has a nice quilted lining and the zipper can open from the bottom. It's by Danier and it was on the half-price clearance rack.
|Is it leather or "leather"?|
I also think I may have found the perfect denim pencil skirt!
I also found a lovely coral, blue, black and olive dotted silk scarf.
Hope you had a great weekend!
