Horned Larks with Turquoise, and Secret Trek

I have what my mom calls "Horse to the barn syndrome" - I'm so looking forward to our long Canada Day weekend, and every day closer makes me want to get there more! Nearly there...And time to break out this lovely patterned dress. 
 The pattern has little birds all over it, with turquoise highlights. Well, that's just a gimme for accessorizing!

  • Dress - Rachel Roy, thrifted; purchased here last weekend for $6.00
  • Shoes - Prepare Guide, Fluevog; last seen here in May with the jelly-deer

 One of my WW members took a close look at the birds and said they looked like horned larks. This is a horned lark:
Sure, I'll take it. I guess as birds go, that is as good as any.

I loved wearing this dress today - it swooshed delightfully.
 I wore a short black half-slip under it, and a light blue cami for the top half.

And my hat! Since I coloured my hair the other night, I've committed to myself to wear a hat to keep the colour from fading out (it turns pink from the sun).
 The hat was thrifted a year or two ago. No label. Note that my dress has pockets! Yay for pockets!

The stuff:
 As always, these shoes fall into the "love 'em/hate 'em" category. There is no "meh" when it comes to these shoes. Enjoy L's rant about them here.

Secret turquoise bling:
Did you notice my Star Trek communicator badge? I enjoy sneaking it into an outfit, just to see who notices! A few people did.

  • Star Trek magnetic badge - MoPop gift shop
  • Turquoise ring - local
  • Shield ring - Nine West
  • Earrings - Mango's

I'm going to be enjoying my weekend and taking a few days to chill and hang out with friends. To all my Canadian friends, Happy 150th Birthday to Canada, and happy Canada Day! To my US friends (who are surely getting a head start this weekend), a very happy 4th of July!


  1. Oh wow a hat that turns pink the sun... it surely sounds interesting.
    Lovely dress and wonderfully accessorised with turquoise. Enjoy your holiday !

  2. No, no, my HAIR COLOUR turns pink in the sun! Thank you, my dear!

  3. That's a beautiful dress and I like the turquoise with it! Enjoy your holiday - no holiday here but we do have a Brisbane day coming up in August, one of the Wednesdays, that I know you won't get off. :)

    1. Thanks, Mica! A holiday on a Wednesday? I hope you take an extra-long weekend!

  4. Love the printed bird dress! I adore small prints and dresses with pockets are a bonus! Love the turquoise shoes, so much fun, and that wee bird, what a cute little creature!
    always a pleasure being on your page Sheila!
    Happy Canada Day!
    xx, Elle

  5. The turquoise accessorizing is fab and right up my street. Patience is a virtue they say, but it's not something I have much of either!
