30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 5

(See the dress in previous years here and here.) Hey, a new background! Check out our crazy climbing roses. This dress is from Vero Moda and I bought in Prague way back in 2008. I had planned to wear a different dress today but the temperature has jumped up this weekend and so sleeves were… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge 2016 – Day 5

30 Day Dress Challenge – Day 4

(See previous years here and here.) If I had thought ahead, I would have taken pictures first thing in the morning today - before we headed out to the beach where I sat in the sand with Pearl, waded through the waves, and generally had a fantastic time and came home with my dress wet… Continue reading 30 Day Dress Challenge – Day 4

Days 28 & 29 – 30 Day Dress Challenge 2014

2 days, 2 dresses! Day 28: The Dress: A repeat from Day 8, this is my Joe Fresh dress again. This time I added a belt, just for a change. I like the way it likes fine both ways but I definitely like wearing it without a belt better. You know, comfort. And since it… Continue reading Days 28 & 29 – 30 Day Dress Challenge 2014

Day 26 – 30 Day Dress Challenge 2014

Repeat, repeat, repeat. I wore this dress back on Day 7 and here it is again with a different sweater. Earlier in the afternoon it was warm enough to wear on its own but by the time evening rolled around, so had the clouds. I had one of those crazy productive days that leave you… Continue reading Day 26 – 30 Day Dress Challenge 2014

Day 20 – 30 Day Dress Challenge 2014

The Dress: This dress reminds me of a painting. I think that's my favourite thing about it. Also that it's silk and Calvin Klein but I bought it at a thrift store so I did not pay silk or Calvin Klein prices. This one was found in Victoria when we were there on Spring Break… Continue reading Day 20 – 30 Day Dress Challenge 2014

Day 19 – 30 Day Dress Challenge 2014

The Dress: I usually only wear this dress in the fall/winter, seeing as it's wool. With a blouse and tights and/or boots, I'm good to go and feel like a librarian. Since it's a grey again today and barely past 15 degrees, I threw it on over a t-shirt. The dress is from Smart Set,… Continue reading Day 19 – 30 Day Dress Challenge 2014

Day 7 – 30 Day Dress Challenge 2014

The Dress: Thrifted at Goodwill on this trip through Washington. It's a fun, easy-to-wear, shirt-style dress. It's light and sleeveless but not overly casual (at least on the West Coast). It was a little windy while we were hanging out at the beach this morning so I also threw on a cardigan. This was another… Continue reading Day 7 – 30 Day Dress Challenge 2014

Day 5 – 30 Day Dress Challenge 2014

The Dress: This Joe Fresh dress was a Chilliwack thrift store find. I love the soft simplicity of it. The top part is cotton and the skirt is silk. You can see the divide here: That also highlights my awesome paper bead necklace that a dear friend brought me from Uganda. I love colourful jewellery… Continue reading Day 5 – 30 Day Dress Challenge 2014

Summer’s Still Here

Summertime on the Sunshine Coast is an especially wonderful time. The days are long and bright, the water is warm(er) but always refreshing, and there is always something to do outside. From kayaking and mountain biking to sitting on your own or someone else's deck and drinking a cold beer. I honestly feel a little… Continue reading Summer’s Still Here
