Gorgeous but cooler weather

I'm happy to say the last couple of days have been lovely, not warm summer lovely but clear sunshiney days with lower temps. While it isn't quite cold enough for sweaters and scarves (thank goodness, it's still only August for pete's sake!) the average temp has been in the low 20's rather than 30's like it was just a short while ago.
With a nod towards the slightly cooler temps but not cool enough to bundle, my outfit of the day is warmer but I'm still sporting flip flops.

Button shirt: Old Navy - this is from a few months ago but they may still have them.
Camisole: Bootlegger - these are stretchy and Bootlegger carries them year round in just about any colour you can think of.
Jeans: Warehouse One
Flip Flops: Wal Mart
Necklace: old b-day present
Bracelets: Wal Mart - I got these out of the clearance bin for about $3 quite a few months ago and wear them a lot.

Made a quick day trip to the Mainland yesterday. It was an absolutely gorgeous day for a ferry ride and the kids ran and ran around on the deck playing in the wind. Marshall was exhausted last night after our long day and could barely keep his eyes open for dinner. In fact when I asked him if it was time to go "night night" he threw up his hands and said "yay!".


I visited a Doberman friend of mine while on my trip and she gave me this gorgeous pillow. I love it! It fits in nicely with my canine decor. 

I'm getting myself back into a cleaning schedule at home (certain days means certain cleaning jobs need to be done). Do you follow any kind of schedule, or are you more like I have been this summer (how did this mess get out of hand!!? Ack..must clean all day long to get back on top of things!!)??


  1. Cute look! I really like your plaid top!


    1. Thanks so much! It's one of my favourites. :)

    2. You're a natural in plaid! You look like a chic gardener :)
