I return, with tidings of fun and good times had! Since this is a bigass post (you have been warned), let's get right to it.
Here's Wednesday evening, an outfit for dinner at Stage, a local charcuterie-style restaurant, for L's actual birthday.
- Dress - D'Allaird's, vintage 60s, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit) in August 2014 for Nick's birthday
- Shoes - Camper; last worn here (3rd outfit) in May with white eyelet for the theatre
Vizzini has loved having us home, although you wouldn't know it by the pictures.
|"What? I'm just a cat in a tray."|
|"Let me nap, woman!"|
|"Put the fan on, this cat needs to flop."|

On Thursday, I needed to get some down-time, so I went to a couple of thrift stores during the day.
- Dress - Karina; last worn here in February while feeling lack of mojo
- Shoes - Born, consignment; last seen here (6th outfit, way down at the bottom) in May for a grocery and thrift shop
Physical sunblock in the form of my trusty jean jacket.
- Green glass bangle - thrifted
- Green jade ring - vintage 70s, Mom's
I did pretty good on my thrifting expedition! My first stop was the St. Vincent de Paul, where I found this fabulous green cardigan for only $4.00.
This is just a hang-around-the-house tee, but it's cute.
I tend to avoid silk blouses, because I ruin them when I sweat, but this one is machine washable.
I had to trash my pink leather shiny metallic sneakers - they wore out. Sad! But look what I found to replace them!
For only $10.00.
I also found a belt for L.
I strolled up to the WIN Boutique for a gander. I really liked the pattern and colours on this mod Mexx blouse.
I am pretty sure Elaine has this same skirt - I'll have to make sure I don't wear mine when I'm going to see her.
This was such a cute skirt - I had to have it.
I like the koi fish on it.
I might have snatched this shirt off the rack the minute I saw it.
It says "Tommy Surf" (written backwards), and it has hibiscus and hula dancers on it.
I recognized these earrings as being by Fossil.
picture) that I got from L several years ago - how awesome to find another pair of earrings to go with my bracelet.
And there's the F.
On Friday, L and I readied ourselves for the Annual Day of Indolence (which has been renamed from the former Annual Day of Indigence, because indigence doesn't mean what we intended). Anyway, huzzah!
Visible Monday" over at Patti's Not Dead Yet Style, as well as for "Hat Attack!" at Style Crone. Go visit them both! Say hi for me, willya?
- Blouse - Tommy Hilfiger, thrifted right up there
- Skirt - Smoking Lily, thrifted right up there as well
- Shoes - Enzo Angiolini, consignment; last seen here (2nd outfit) in May for an Ulty field quick-change
I sunblocked but also carried my paper parasol with me. I always prefer physical sunblock.
- Scarf - thirfted, vintage
- Earrings - Le Chateau
- Parasol - Chinatown
Okay, here we go - this is a big long stretch of pictures! We started off at Floyd's with Cat, Ross and Randall for breakfast, then meandered down to the next bar.
We stopped at the Sticky Wicket Pub for a shot.
We don't really plan too much, so when I suggested we take a water taxi to Spinnaker's Pub, all were in favour!
Ooh, pretty sailing boat.
Ross and I waiting for the taxi.
You just pay for whatever trip you want to take around the harbour and hop on!
Cat was our trusty "tech support", letting others know where we were headed.
|"Going to Spinnaker's - meet us there."|
We only had to wait a few minutes for our taxi.
Pulling away from the docks.
The cool ocean breeze felt awesome.
|"I'm so not a tourist!"|
We passed all kinds of condos on the edge of the harbour.
L being his jovial self.
I liked this statue that was in front of one of the condos.
The crew strolling along the walkway to the next pub.
Caro showed up just after we arrived.
Yvonne showed up a few minutes later.
We spotted this ginormous cruise ship coming in.
Our crazy-faces group shot!
|Our waitress was standing on a chair.|
From there, we strolled back along the walkway to Lure Patio, at the Delta Ocean Pointe.
This dog accosted me.
|"I smell cat."|
I love living this close to the ocean.
Gents chillin' at the patio.
And off we headed to the next pub!
Over the bridge!
Must record that step for posterity.
And here we are at Market Square, at Lower Johnson.
To the Drake!
We were across the street from Swan's Pub (also a brewpub), but we used to go there every week for years, so now we rarely do.
|Tourist sightseeing bus going by|
A slightly more tipsy group shot.
Our videographer, Nick.
My state of mind by this point of the late afternoon?
|"Woo hoo! Let's take a selfie, Cat!"|
Chris and Alli got married on Thursday.
When carousing about, always look back at where you've come from.
And here we are at our last stop, the Garrick's Head, which is across from the Irish Times Pub. One of these pubs is a touristy one; one is not.
|"Give me that camera!"|
|Me, Vero and Yvonne|
Now our silliness is recorded forever.
We had an awesome day, chilling with friends, being silly and taking in the sun and sights of our lovely town. Thank you to all my friends who joined us!
Yesterday/Saturday was a very low-key day, where L and I just hung out with Vizzini and enjoyed some time as a fam.
Today, I strolled to town for groceries (which arrived as I was writing this, not half an hour ago), then met up with Yvonne for a shop over at My Sister's Closet.
- Dress - Taylor, consignment; last seen here (5th outfit) back in September 2014 for another grocery shop (same shoes, too).
- Sandals - Born, consignment; last worn here last weekend to the Ulty field
- Earrings - Plum
Yvonne did really well, but I didn't find much that I really loved.
I also really liked this fringed magenta top.
|"You were gone all day for this? What about me?"|
Well? How was your weekend? Did you ride on any boats?
