It is 26 degrees out today.  For my American neighbours to the south, that's about 80 degrees.  And considering it's been cold up until 3 days ago, this is such a nice change.  Tee's instead of sweaters.  Capri's instead of jeans.  Yay!!!!

So I'm linking up with WIWS on Messy Wife, Blessed Life today - mostly because I wore one of my FAVE outfits.

Errrr...don't take the picture yet, I said...

Alright, I know it looks like I'm closing my eyes, but I'm really not.

Here's the lowdown:

Jean shirt: Gap - thrifted so many years ago that I almost threw it out last month, but thankfully put it back in my closet and now I wear it all the time.

White/grey shirts:  Have no idea of brand or when/where I got them.  Plain white tee's...

Skirt: No name - thrifted.  It's actually a strapless dress, but the fabric is so stretchy it fits me as a maxi skirt and I love it!!

Necklace: Le Chateau bought for FULL PRICE...$20.  I know, it hurt me too.  But I've been wanting this colour and this style necklace and for some odd reason, couldn't find exactly what I wanted (for the right-ish price).

Earrings: Zellers closing sale

Sandals: Soft Moc $40 sale.  Loved these so much last summer that I bought another pair in the fall - for this summer.  I'm going to wear these until I can't wear 'em no more and then I've got a whole other pair. Yay.

**And on a totally unrelated note - we've been trying to get a link-up working for ourselves (we're doing a Book and Tea link up called Leaves) but it doesn't seem to work very well.  Can anybody give us suggestions as to why?  We signed up with Linky-somthing-or-other and the "linky's" don't work so we gave up on it and just went with regular comments, but we'd like to actually link up.

**Also, in case you didn't get a chance to, sign up for our Book Giveaway which happens tomorrow (Monday) morning!


  1. Beautiful, Sarah! Awesome skirt, and to pair it with that great jean jacket is probably something I wouldn't have thought to do myself, but I love love love it! :D

  2. So cute! I love your necklace!

  3. Denim jacket/button-up day! High-fives!

  4. Such a great outfit; feminine, modest, and trendy! Perfection!

    I just love when I can hack an article of clothing and turn it into something else. I have for sure worn a "dress" as a skirt in the past!

  5. You look great! A great denim shirt never goes out of style, glad you kept it! And I love the necklace, it makes everything "pop" :)

  6. That outfit is awesome!! I wish I could just buy it from you (no really).

  7. You look gorgeous, my dear! Love those colours (especially teal). I didn't even know Le Chateau was still around. I remember buying stuff there back when babydoll dresses and Doc Martens were the thing. I think I might have even bought a mood ring from them back in the day! Love the bubble necklace. I wonder if I could pull one of those off with a nursing baby? Probably not!

  8. totally crushing on that necklace and the shoes and the skirt! love this combo...just fabulous my friend. happy sunday!

  9. I really love that necklace. I've been wanting one like that myself, but unless it falls out of the sky for free, that will be on my perpetual wish list! I also love jean jackets/skirts and I think your combo goes so great with your necklace!



What is a woman? What does it mean to be feminine? There is softness and hardness, compassion and ferocity. There is contentment and adventure, freedom and service. We're conundrums, especially to ourselves, but we all, in some way, possess beauty, creativity, intuition and love. We were made for love, and we are loved, cellulite and all. Here we aim to show every woman the richness and beauty of her own femininity and explore current issues relating to women in our world. We also wish to share our own experiences - exploring the joys and challenges of stay-at-home moms and single professionals and everyone in between. Welcome! So glad you're here!
