Hi everyone! It’s been quite a while since my last post and I really need to get back in the swing of things. I’m doing well after my last surgery, but it seems like with each one I am more tired and take a little longer to bounce back to being myself. While I’m still not quite there I finally just said enough is enough… time to get back to my life. Outfits are tough at the moment. I’m confined to a sports bra which severely limits the tops you are able to wear and my left and right breast are two very different sizes. While this will slowly be rectified it does present some interesting challenges when getting dressed. Prints and scarves are my best friends at the moment. Hopefully if they’re distracting enough people won’t notice!
Stay tuned for some great product reviews and outfits coming soon to a computer near you!

OK. So the truth is that I’ve been hoarding outfits to post the last couple weeks. I once again had surgery to replace the expander that had an issue after my first breast cancer surgery. I’m doing well this time. Everything is in place and no infections. I’m just not in a position to be putting on cute little outfits to be photographed. In fact, I think I may just cancel Valentine’s Day this year. While my amazing husband doesn’t care if I wear sweat pants and a huge top to hide all the goings on up there, I’m just not feeling so sexy and romantic at the moment. This outfit was the last set of pictures we took before my surgery. I love the flowing cardigan that’s see-through enough to let the stripes show. I also had to include my little Lubi. I gave him a bath that morning and he was just looking so fluffy and adorable. I couldn’t resist. He’s my little rock. He’s like a real live stuffed animal. He sleeps curled up beside me and goes to get daddy when I wake up so he can help me and he sits cuddled up next to me all day long.
I promise as I heal and start to look more normal more amazing outfits will follow. See you soon!!

There’s just something ironic about wearing a nice floral top and floral jewellery during a snow storm. Why not? This winter has been crazy so you have to have fun with it. Being that I was scheduled to have more surgery to remedy this whole breast cancer thing that I’ve been dealing with I decided that I would like to go out for a somewhat special supper before I was stuck in my house for a while. It’s especially difficult to pick footwear when you know you’re going to have to walk through some kind of slop even if there is valet parking. I love these platform booties but they are quite old so I just went with it. And wait until you hear about this fabulous jeans score. I found J Brand coated skinnies in my size, on clearance at Marshall’s for $25.00! Awesome!

I love snow. Sorry all you summer fanatics, but winter is just my favourite. Snow is pretty. Rain is just sad. There’s nothing like putting on a great pair of jeans and a cozy sweater and watching the snow fall. Not to mention my favourite accessory — the scarf. I actually incorporate scarves into every season, but the winter ones are the best! I saw this sweater in the Nordstrom Savvy department right when it arrived and I had to have it. Something about it just called to me. It’s a nice chunky knit and has the hi/lo concept which gives it some funkiness. For me to buy something not on sale it’s gotta really be right. Here I paired it with jeans and my Sorel boots for a casual look. What good Canadian girl doesn’t own a pair of Sorel boots? I’ve also worn it to the office with black pants and riding boots giving it a totally different, yet equally cool vibe. Versatility is everything. Hope you like it as much as I do!
