Weekend Outfits and an Overdose of Cuteness

Another weekend, almost over. Why are they just not long enough?

I wore another light dress to Weight Watchers on Saturday:
I was able to my quick-change at the field after Ultimate very handily in this.

The weather's been a little cooler in the mornings, so my jackets are now back into rotation:
Dress (BCBG Max Azria, gift from Ruth), jacket (Ann Taylor Loft), shoes (Expressions? something cheap), belt (Nygard), earrings (Plum).

Today, I met Elaine for lunch and then we spent four hours thrift shopping. I got a bunch of great items (some are more for autumn, so I won't be wearing them right away). I wore my usual shopping outfit: a dress that goes on and off easy (no zipper, buttons or belt), slip-on shoes, minimal accessories, and a jacket:
The dress was a thifting deal from last year ($9), previously worn here and here. Wow, I can't believe I haven't worn this in over a year! That's crazy.

My python-print leather jacket (thrifted in Vancouver over a year ago for $20):
My feet are tired!

Dress (BCBG Max Azria, thrifted), jacket (Bebe, thrifted), shoes (Kenneth Cole Reaction, gift from Cat).

Okay, I promised cuteness. Are you ready? It's awfully cute!

Last night, Inigo was in his usual crashed-on-L's-lap position:
I had to grab the camera quickly while L rubbed his tum.

The face of utter contentedness:
Moved in a little closer....
I see you!

Happy paws reached for me:
He really does this all the time. He is such a gentle, loving cat.

Full-on sex-ay kitty:
He just lays there like that. Such a funny kitty!

Hope you had a great weekend!


  1. Adorable dresses. Very simple and functional. I need to break out some of mine.

    Soooo cute! I heart Inigo. He's totally the twin of my old cat. My mom's cat hates his belly rubbed, he thinks it means play time and bites.

  2. love the leopard flats. nothing is such fun as leopard print.

  3. Oh, there's the handsome boy! :)

    It just got hotter here, so I am anxiously awaiting jacket weather! Love that drape neck dress.

  4. I adore those two dresses, they look amazing and you wear them beautifully.
    I personally prefer both without the jacket...
    And INIGO is too cute.

  5. Great fashion AND cute cats?! You're making this blog irresistable!

  6. agree totally- he is a handsome boy indeed- hope he got lots of belly scratches.

  7. I love the coral-y dress, the shape is absolutely perfect on you :)

  8. Autumn's my favorite season so I don't mind the extra layers. Bring on the jackets and coats!

    It's been years since I've had the kitty paws salute...undeniably cute!

  9. Awww, Inigo really makes me miss having a cat. I'm not sure how Georgie would deal with one; I suspect her solution might be to eat it. Glad I can get my cute kitty overload here, at least!

  10. I love both of these dresses. You have great thifting skills!
    Also, that is an overdose of cuteness! Ahh!!

  11. Those dresses are both great. The coral dress is such an amazing thrift find. I am in awe of your skills.
    Also, total cute overdose!

  12. You look great... as always great idea with the simple dress for thrifting I will have to remember that.I am sure it makes it much easier to try on stuff..It is hard to believe Autumn is on it's way....can't wait to see some of your new thrift items..Your cat is adorable ;D

  13. Thanks, Megan! I know, isn't he a lovey thing? Ooh, those kind of cats are Venus Fly-Cats. Chomp!

    Natasha, I totally agree.

    Northmoon, yes, he's a sweetie. :)

    Freeda, thanks!

    Lorena, thank you - I agree, they're better without the jackets, but it was too cold otherwise.

    Wendy, hee, perfect!

    shybiker, thanks!

    Alecia, he gets lots of tummy rubs. He's very spoiled with love and attention.

    Thanks, Iris!

    Jen, me too! I can't wait. I've been saving up good autumn finds and have just been waiting for cool weather to wear them.

    Audi, you're welcome to "borrow" my kitty.

    Rad, thank you (for both posts)! Inigo thanks you too.

    Thanks, Kim! I call it "the Justin Bieber", hee hee.

    Thanks, Heather! A simple dress is essential for any kind of clothing shopping.

  14. Oh, I love that red dress! Great color, fit, and shape. You look smashing!
