Giddy yup!

Couldn't fight the weather anymore (guess who always win? silly wabbit), all I know is that I need to stay warm. So out came the boots. Again. *sigh*

cardi (old), Chaus shirt and Aerosole boots (Winners),
BR belt, Gap cord jeans, and Nygard necklace (Sears)

Ay yah! Boots and it's practically June! Where are we?! The southern hemisphere?!

One thing for sure tho', I was warm and comfortable. Thank god for small comforts.

Zara coat

At least tomorrow's Friday. Again, another small comfort. Then, hopefully, lots of small comforts = one big happy comfort... hehe

You're a Rock Star... Not

With the fall-like weather we've been having the last few days, almost glad to hear that it wasn't just me getting affected by this unseasonal weather. Other people at work seem to be on the same boat (how appropriate... rain... boat... hehe). Around this time of the year, I guess people are just expecting summery weather already. And when you're not seeing and feeling it, it really throws your psyche off the loop.

Esprit jacket, H&M shirt and scarf, AE jeans,
Tommy Hilfiger boots (Winners)

More wah-wah-wah... How can the weather affect our mood so much?

I suppose I could be talking about less inane stuff, but see, I don't have the energy even for that. Heck, I barely have energy at work, let alone deal with other things. Bah!

Someone at work told me I look like one of those rock stars, with my biker boots and leopard scarf. An aging rock star, perhaps? Circa 1980's? hehe

I guess my outfit almost looks angry and rebellious. Yes, that's it, rebelling against this unseasonal weather, and angry that I've yet to enjoy my summer clothes. Well, ok, I didn't look it. More like felt it, I think.

Ramble, ramble, ramble... *doing the Mick Jagger walk*

In Between Seasons

While family and friends are enjoying a heatwave in Ontario, us folks this side of the coast are experiencing the opposite. Gah!

F21 cardi, Susan Lawrence top (Winners, old),
RW&Co necklace, Old Navy jeans, H&M flats

Kinda' weird to figure out what to wear on days like today... Too cold for a dress, too warm, and weird, for tights and boots. What's a girl to do?

If only all life's problems are this hard, eh?... wah, wah, wah... hehe

Where's the sun?!?!

Goes with Anything

Maybe it's just me, but I love, love this scarf...


... that I think it goes with anything. No?

Funny enough, the only thing worth noting in today's outfit, I think hehe


I'm not even supposed to be at work today, but I made a commitment to come in. Guess it's all good...

No extra hours though, that's for sure. I came in the time I should and left the time that I should. It's only fair.

Pearls and Cargo

As I'm writing this, the sun is shining directly at my face, through the window. Could it be, summer is really on its way?

SC&Co jacket (Winners, old), Gap shirt and pants,
Clarks flats (The Bay)

Yesterday turned out quite alright. Weather was b-e-a-u-tiful!! Met some friends for a quick drink after work, by the water at that (why can't it be like that every night?). Then sushi for late dinner with hubs.

Today is another beautiful day! *happy sigh*

Went for a nice walk earlier on the Seawall. It seems everybody had the same idea. O well. There was plenty enough walk space for all. I didn't mind the crowd at all...

Not sure what it'll be like tomorrow. Just want to savor what's left of the day...

Happy weekend indeed!

Groovy Gravy

Despite the rough start of the (short) work week, the following days were quite easy, relatively speaking. All of 2 days I tell ya, yesterday and today hehe

It's a new vision top (Winners, old), Gap belt and cord pants, H&M flats

I'm just glad that the days just seem to be improving by the hour. Maybe I'm just deluding myself. Or maybe just the mere idea that tomorrow is Friday already is clouding my brain. Hey, whatever works! 

... shoulders and back straight, NOT... tut-tut

It doesn't hurt either that the weather seems to be turning around, even for a day or 2 only.

BR jean jacket

One more day... TGIFT(omorrow)!!! Hah!

Halloween in Spring

After a decent amount of sleep last night, today turned out definitely much better. Granted I coulda' probably slept another hour or 2 or 3 or 4...

Zara tunic top, scarf (Winners), Old Navy jeans,
Converse leather Chucks

I said the day felt better, I didn't say I looked better. Hah!

Days like today makes me really appreciate not having a dress code at work. Dress it up, dress it down, heck even dress it sideways(?) if you want, no one cares. To a degree...

(my fave cuffs)

Hump day... we're almost there...

Tuesday, 22 May 2012


With today's weather, it felt like we're hurtling back to fall, skipping summer entirely. Bah!

Nicole Miller cardi, Nevada shirt (Sears), belt (Ross, old),
BDG jegging (UO), Clarks desert boots (Winners)

My day started out normal enough. But then, as the day wore on, the energy level just kept on going down, rather than up.  By the end of the day, I felt really tired. Worse, I looked really tired, so I was told. Bah!

Even hubs told me my eyes looked tired a minute ago. More bah!

Guess this is what happens when one had a long weekend and thinking it was a long weekend, decided to tackle long overdue chores around the house, which got one sore all over, but at the end, feeling quite satisfied that things were done, finally... yippee... boo... yippee...

Here's to the rest of the week! HAH!

Better Than Yesterday

With the kind of work week I had, I can't express how glad I am it's Saturday.

Jacket (old), Beech Bros. top (Fairweather), Gap cords,
Clarks flats (The Bay)

Funny enough, today's outfit is a wholla better than yesterday's (def not worth the post), considering I worked yesterday, and am not today. Hah!

I still have overflow of work from last week, or I should say, more than usual overflow, so I'm thinking I may just do a bit of that this weekend... Did I just write what I just wrote? Am I crazy?!?!... Apparently I am... hmmm, I may have just changed my mind after all... maybe...

Pink and Black

Since yesterday's outfit was fairly out there, I thought I'd tone it down a bit.

Finity top (Winners, old), Gap belt, J Crew skinny cord, Geox flat

Luckily, the pants I ordered last week arrived a few days ago. Hah! So couldn't have found a better time to try out, I thought.

As glad as I am that tomorrow's Friday, (I can't believe I'm gonna say this) I have so much stuff to do at work, it feels like I need another workday. Bah!

At least it's gonna be a long weekend, thank you stat holiday!

This outfit was inspired by this...

Actually, thanks to this pic, I've found a reason to look for this color of pants. How sad is that? Meh... I do quite like this color. I should really say that I've found another reason, that's all...

Flower Power

When I heard that rain might be coming back sooner than the Weather Network originally predicted, I felt the urge all of a sudden to wear these pants.

jacket and shirt (old!), Tiffany necklace (gift), H&M pants,
Gap belt, Clarks flats (The Bay)


Needless to say, the pants got a lot of attention today. Good attention, thank god. At least, that's what they say to my face. I'll settle for that. hehe

I was supposed to meet some colleagues for dinner tonight but the plan got cancelled. Kinda' glad coz I'm a lil pooped. So what did I do? Stayed later at work, that's what!

Danier tote, scarf (no name)

Hump day, thank god!...

Stars and Stripes

Today felt better than yesterday, somewhat. Thank god!

H&M shirt, Raj scarf (Winners), BR belt, Gap jeans,
Clarks flats (The Bay)

Not even really sure why but this one case just got me so worked up that I was thinking about it even as I was about to go to sleep last night. Cray cray!!! And people who know me will say that it's so unlike me. Fortunately, like I said, today went much better than yesterday, generally speaking. Whew!

The weather was still nice, not as warm as they predicted, but still nice.

To treat myself today, I decided to go for a pedi. I always find the whole thing relaxing, from the massage chair to the calf massage, and everything in between.

Line cardi (Winners)... blasted a/c at work!

Fresh Linen

I wish everyday's like today. And more importantly, I wish I didn't have to work on a day like today, but that's neither here nor there.

Gap shirt and jacket, BR belt (Outlet), For Cynthia linen skirt (Winners,
recent purch), Expression bangle and flats (The Bay)

If I'm not mistaken, today is even nicer than the last 2 days. I'd say what a way to start the week. If only that's all it takes to get a week going right. *sigh*

Doing my absolute darndest to not let one incident from earlier get the the best of me. Ach! And it's only Monday!

Aldo tote (purchased in Feb, used for the first time,
waited and waited for it get sunny, not sure why now)

Anyhoot, moving along, I think it's supposed to be nice for the rest of the week, albeit not as warm. But who cares! As long as it's sunny. More than we can hope for, this time of the year. Until the rain comes back anyway.

... just focus on how sunny it's been, that's it!

What a Week!

Now that it's Saturday, kinda' scary how this week flew by soooo fast.

Top (old), CK cropped pants and Beck men's belt (Winners),
Gap flats, Expression cuff (The Bay)

Time flies when you're having fun, eh? Actually, no. This week felt more like time flies when you wear 3 hats at work and faced with 10 tasks at a time. O well...

Didn't realize how exhausted I was until last night when I passed out briefly on the couch while waiting for dinner then going to bed by 10, passing out shortly after, and waking up at around 9 this morning. Eeeek!!

necklace (gift from friend)

Do I feel bad sleeping for so long? Definitely not. Do I feel rested when I woke up? You bet I was.

... purchased in Dec and worn for the first time

Today and tomorrow is supposed to be nice. I can confirm that for sure for today, just looking outside. And if today's any indication of tomorrow, then all imma say is, YAY!
