Sunday Fashion Fun-day #1

Well folks, here it is. 

I debated long and hard about how to do my first "fashion" post. I put fashion in quotation marks honestly because I'm not that creative or trendy when it comes to fashion so It's really going to be more like outfit posts, hehe!
Anyway, I greatly debated about whether I should start with a more fun, "out and about" outfit, or go with my regular "out to work" outfit. Even though the whole scrubs outfit is a much more common occurrence for me, I thought I'd live on the edge a little and go with the "out and about" outfit. So here it is. Oh, and please keep in mind, I have yet to figure out how to get good full body self photos from my cell phone, and I haven't done any of my photographs while the hubby has been home yet for him to take the photos, so you guys are stuck with images like this for now. Sorry!   


This outfit I wore Friday afternoon, on my day off, while I went out and grabbed a quick coffee and took the pup out for a walk. Obviously this is on the dressier side for an activity like this, but it's a super comfy, easy to throw on dress, and I think the rubber rain boots definitely give it a more casual look instead of wearing say, a leather boot. The outfit as a whole is keeping pretty neutral in colors, but the pop of yellow from the boots, and the multi-color scarf give it a bit of flare!

(I've included pictures of the individual items as they hang because I am a big believer in trying things on. Some items might look silly on the racks in the stores, but when you put them on, they actually turn out way better than expected, and vice versa, you might love it on the rack, but it just might not work when you put it on your body)  

Jacket: Bridal gift from my sisters from Danier-November 2013
Scarf: Winners-November 2013
Dress: Winners-September 2014
Socks: Christmas Gift-December 2013
Boots: Roma online-April 2014
Earrings: Ardene-August 2014.

I really am so madly in love with the Roma boots. Living in B.C. I get lots of opportunity to wear them. They aren't the warmest boots (I usually wear a nice thick pair of socks with them), but they keep my feet totally dry, they were under $100 and better yet, when you buy a pair, they donate a pair as well :) Can't beat that.

Since Friday was a sunny day, I didn't need any tights or leggings, but in the colder weather days, I definitely add a pair and I'm good to go.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on my first outfit post! Did I pull off my attempt at effortlessly cute?



  1. Love it Linds! I'm obsessed with your jacket, that one is a keeper for life. Great first outfit post!
    There is a timer app for cell phones, I don't know what it's called - maybe timer app? See if you can find it. That way you can do full-body shots when you're by yourself. I do all my photos by myself, I use a tripod and the timer function on my camera all the time. It can be tricky, but it works!

  2. Aww thanks Miriam! That's the same jacket I wore on my wedding day with my wedding dress! I just absolutely love it!
    I'll have to check out this timer app, and then find some way to prop up my camera! Hopefully I'll have it figured out for the next outfit post!
