If You’ve Got The Time
I really need your help. When we were on our lovely vacation we did a ton of walking around, one day we started walking around at 9 am and barely sat for a minute until we had supper at 10 pm. Which was so much fun and I plan on spending a good deal of my summer strolling around. My only problem with this plan is that I don’t have any good walking shoes. I have lots of cute shoes that look great with my dresses but nothing that is practical at all. Actually the pair of shoes I thought were the most practical, I ended up wearing a huge hole in them after a day of walking.
So do you ladies have any shoe suggestions? I am looking for something that is comfortable enough to walk around in for a whole day but also looks cute with summer skirts and dresses.

Do You Want Fries With That?
How amazing is this print eh? I am seriously in love with it and it’s not even my style. But once in a while you see something and it just speaks to you and you know you can’t live without it. Every time I put this dress on it puts a huge smile on my face, and brightens up my whole day.
Oh, and the dress is so comfortable. And it has pockets. And there is really nothing bad to be said about this dress.
Sunnies & Cardigan- OldNavy

Seriously, this print is amazing. It makes me feel amazing.
I hope you guys felt amazing today too.
Playing Catch Up
Hello Friends! I feel like I am perpetually apologizing for my inconsistent blogging. But here is another I’m sorry for neglecting my blog. However, I have been super busy! And I thought I would put up a little photo diary post of what I have been doing the last month.
These cold winter months just call for lots of reading, so I have been diving into great reads just as Mindy Kaling’s Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? and Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms. And I have been working on sketching some dress designs, I hope to start selling my own designs in my shop by the end of the year.
On Valentine’s Day I made a heart shaped brownies (all thanks to my Ma) for the Hubster’s class.
We have taken in a stray dog (Rocky) from our neighborhood because she was limping around on her front leg and the temperatures were getting down to -51 degrees Celsius. She’s only staying with us until she heals up, then we hope to find her a permanent home, even though she does fit in here with the family perfectly.
I have been slowly working on new pieces for my shop. I hope to have some great, sunny colored items for spring.
I have been experimenting with nude makeup. I have always been into super red lips and (well I can be honest) over done eye shadow. But lately I have done away with eye shadow, toned down the bright red lips and started adding a touch of blush. I love the effortless look, although I can promise you the red lips will be back.
I have been watching the gorgeous snow pile up outside my window.
And the hubster and I have been out and about enjoying this wonderful winter in our new town. We’ve built a mitchuap, gone to see his school kids play hockey and broomball, attended some great parties and jam sessions, and met a lot of cool people.
Also, I got the opportunity to work for Special Education Services at the school for a week. Something I hope to pursue more in the future.
What have you guys been up to? Tell me how you are getting through the winter months.
Spending Time with my Closet
Sorry for my absence folks, but I had the itch to get my spring cleaning done early. My closet was an absolute mess. Seriously, it couldn’t have been more disorganized. I could barely make an outfit because I couldn’t see any of my clothes.
So I set up camp in my bedroom for the last three days going through boxes, and taking everything out of my closet. Then I did what seemed to be the impossible, I tried everything on. I took every piece I own off the hanger and tried them on one by one. This means I tried on 49 dresses, one of which was my prom dress (which still fits FIY). This took forever, but I discarded everything that didn’t fit. I feel much better knowing that when I look at the items in my closet I fits properly.
I am pretty happy with my finished product. Although I know what you are thinking “All you have is half a closet? Not even half a walk in closet, just half a sliding door closet?” It’s true, it’s a little ridiculous for someone who collects clothing to only have half a closet, but sadly I had to share with the Hubster because we only have one closet in the whole house.
Even though it is a small space and my hangers don’t match and my sweaters are stacked miles high and that there is barely space to move the clothes to get the dresses out, I feel okay about the organization. I put skirts together, then fancy dresses, linen dresses, sun dresses, everyday dresses, vests, leather coats and house coats. I think this system is going to work…for now. I will keep dreaming about a well lit walk in with a full length mirror and a couch.
What layout do you have for your closet? What is your dream closet?
