Whew!! It’s Monday and here I am as usual…despite my mentioning last week that I’d no longer be so hard on myself about posting on a strict schedule. I’ll be honest, though – it was looking a little “touch and go” there for a while!! 😳
Robin and I had a day trip planned on Saturday to visit friends at their trailer in the States, and our fingers were tightly crossed that the weather would continue to be as springlike as it had been for the previous few days; for the first time this year, it was actually nice enough to enjoy dinner out on our terrace!! But Murphy’s Law took over…and we were back to rain and chilly temperatures for the weekend.
We brought our camera along for the trip anyways – like we always do! – but between the drive, the visit, and the intermittent downpours, a photo op was just not in the cards that day. We still managed to have a ton of fun, however!! My regular readers know that I’m the polar opposite of “outdoorsy”…but barbecued nachos (yep – there’s such a thing!) and catching up around a cozy firepit?? That’s something I can definitely get behind!!
Our prospects for outfit pics didn’t look promising on Sunday morning, either; rain, rain, and even more rain. But after a Starbucks run and a browse around Winners, the sky cleared up a bit…et voilà!! We had our opportunity!! And I’m super happy it happened, too, ’cause I’d been wanting to show off my starry skinnies again ever since I debuted them a few weeks back. 😉
Plus – I’ve been really inspired by all the dress-over-denim combos that I’ve seen on Pinterest lately. Of course I had to put my own spin on the trend…so I doubled up by layering my green plaid flannel shirtdress over a black Aritzia tunic. An unexpected combo with star-patterned jeans?? I wouldn’t be a “fearless fashionista” if it wasn’t!! 😁
