Hello, my friends! It's been a very chill weekend over here, with the one and only highlight being...Winesday!
- Blouse - Catherine Malandrino, thrifted; "shopped" here, and first worn here in April 2019 with the slouchy pants I also rescued
- Cords - J. Crew, thrifted; last seen here (3rd outfit) in September 2019 with turquoise and floral for brunch
- Shoes - Truths Makena, Fluevog; last worn here with beads and velvet for Valentine's Day in February
- Coat (below) - Lord & Taylor, thrifted; last seen here last weekend
- Sleeveless coat (below) - Only, thrifted; last worn here in March
It's 100% silk and the body is fully-lined with a duplicate of the top layer print, so that it's not as sheer as the sleeves.
I decided to pair it with these very stretchy fine-wale cords, knowing I'd be sitting for several hours, as well as walking for about 30 minutes each way.
We were hoping it would be another warm weekend, but it's been very windy the past few days.
That thin coat would definitely not be warm enough.
- Scarf - Portolano, thrifted
- Gloves - Parkhurst
I met up with Cat and we walked together to Beacon Hill Park where we all met last week (here).
- White gold earrings - Frances Jewelers, 10th anniversary gift from L
This is what I packed for my evening. Typically, Winesday is an "all sharesies" format, but not in these times.
I made Cat pose beside this California lilac.
We hung out near Yvonne's place, in the same park as last weekend, but in a different corner.
Marian arrived! Her husband and her two kids are in the distance - they dropped her off for a couple of hours, then picked her up later.
Joanne and Linda are "bubbled' so sat together.
Yvonne in her chair. I used Randall's chair, as I don't have a collapsible chair. Maybe I need one?? Those trees behind Yvonne are where we sat last weekend.
As Joanne and Linda set up, I swapped my shoes for...
Caro cycled over (that's her bike chained up to the sign behind her) and set up beside me.
We were treated to a parade of classic cars!
We hung out until about 9pm when we couldn't see each other anymore (and had to use the bathroom badly!) and then 3 of us ventured to Yvonne's place.
My province (BC) has had around 2,500 cases of COVID, with 155 deaths, and on Vancouver Island, and fewer than 10 deaths this entire time. We have gone nearly 14 days with no new cases, so we are feeling very positive, but still being vigilant and exercising a lot of care around contact.
We hung out until about midnight, and then Cat and I walked home. L had hosted Randall and Casey for an evening of music (also being super-careful), so he was up when I got home, and we chilled out for a bit before crashing into bed.
Vizzini loved having new people around (so I heard).

It felt so good to see my friends and have this evening together! Have you had any "solo picnics" with your friends yet?
