mama and me

Dress- Anthropologie; Jacket- Thrifted (remixed like this); Sandals- Old Navy (remixed like this); Purse & Belt- Thrifted; Nail Polish- Butterfly by Revlon

My Mum flew up to spend the weekend with me and we had such great mother-daughter moments that I (almost) wish she could be a permanent house guest! I treated her to her first pedicure (and now she's hooked!); we mooched around the library, art gallery and shops; we played Rock Band and Wii Sports (also a new experience for her); ate great food and most importantly laughed, cried, chatted and gossiped.  I only see her every 6 months or so (she was living in England for 6 years and now she's in Nova Scotia) so I treasure the time we spend together.  As great as friends and romantic relationships are, sometimes you just need to hang out with your Mum!


I previously wore this Anthropologie dress to Malibu Beach on my trip to California in November and fell in love with its bright colours, lightweight fabric and flouncy skirt. 


This romper is one of the most comfortable pieces in my closet and I adore the fuschia and white stripes and deep pockets.  Only problem is, my legs are glowing in the dark...I'm seriously contemplating a spray on tan this week...

Blouse (remixed like this); Romper; Sandals; Purse & Bracelet- Thrifted; Sunglasses- Aldo; Necklace- The Bay





I'm already counting down the days to Christmas when my Mum and I are reunited! (She's wearing a floral blouse she bought at my local neighbourhood thrift store....where I broke the 30x30 shopping ban- I couldn't resist the great finds!!!)

  2. Would like to thank you very much for a wonderful time...but could not be a permanent house guest due to Marley's (large orange cat) inclication to clunk his head against mine in the wee hours of the morning in a loving way (you assured me), and then arrange himself so he is sitting on my head and taking up most of the pillow while doing so! I will require a hockey helmet next time I visit. love, Mum xox

  3. First, I love the color combo with the romper. Those colors are nice together. Second, I think your Anthro dress is lovely! I wish I could make myself buy an Anthro dress lols

    Last, I think it's wonderful that you and your mom are close-- and try to stay close even if you don't get to spend much time together!

  4. Aren't mom's the absolute best? I wasn't even a moody teenager but I still wish I could transport myself back to 1995 and tell that little lady to enjoy her mama more!

  6. Your mommy looks so cute! And when I saw the first pic my jaw dropped! You look stunning! You look really sexy I think! And I wouldn't worry about fake-tanning! You have natural elegance and class, that is also expressed through the colour of your skin, hair and body language. Sometimes I just wish I was a blonde, petite girl but... oh well! Let's just stick with what we have, right? Hugs! :)
