Hi!  How's everyone doing?  Weekend good?  Sorry, I know it's Tuesday but to me it's Monday.  Gosh, I was so tired after work today!  You know when you come back to work after the weekend and have all.the.emails?  That was me today.  I really didn't want to do my BBG workout after work but I went to the gym anyways and once I was there decided to take a class instead so I could just turn my brain off for an hour.  It took me a little while to get into it but I felt pretty good afterwards - and more awake!  Crazy how that always happens, no?
T was in Seattle over the weekend so I had some time to myself.  On Friday after work I went downtown and did some shopping before meeting up with some gals from work for a little party at the Vancouver Art Gallery.  I did end up buying this sleeveless sweater (in Navy) from J.Crew which was totally unexpected.  I was scouting for long-sleeved dresses at Old Navy, and trying on some shoes for size at Nordstrom (these booties, these flats).  I had some extra time so I wandered into J.Crew and found the sweater on extra 40% off sale rack (it ended up being around $40 total).  I had seen it online earlier this month and thought it was cute - but only 25% off online, and final sale.  So seeing it in person was great!  It's really soft and warm (unlike this one from J.Crew Factory), though slightly impractical for the season ... I wore it yesterday with distressed skinnies so am feeling good about it!
I'll share more about my scouting mission and it's results another time!  Have a great week and thank you for reading!

Hi everyone!  How was your weekend?

Ours was good, I worked on Saturday while it rained like cats & dogs ... then miraculously the sun appeared at 4pm!  T & I grabbed a quick bite for dinner & then planned on going to Storm Crow to play a board game, but it was super busy and we would have had to wait for an hour and a half!  Uh, no thanks!
Sunday we slept in (kind of), and I decided to make some banana bread with "all of the" frozen bananas in our freezer.  Smart me thought I had SO MANY bananas and that I would double the recipe.  I mixed all of the ingredients, except for the bananas, only to realize that I only had enough for 1 batch!  Ughhhh.  I made 2 loaves anyways and surprise surprise they turned out dry :(  I would have added applesauce or yogurt to account for the missing bananas if I had any, but no luck.  So much for not wasting food!  After the baking fiasco we went for brunch on our way to my cousin's baby party.  We tried to go to Yolks, a popular food truck-turned restaurant, but again ... long line!  So we got scrambled egg paninis from Terra Breads in Olympic Village instead and were on our way to North Vancouver!
Sunday night we saw Sigur Ros at Queen Elizabeth Theatre with friends.  We have wanted to see them for a long time and last time they were in Vancouver the tickets sold out quickly and we were unable to find any for resale.  This time there were tons for resale!  Anyways, they put on a great show, we* had a few drinks and ended up in the McDonald's drive-thru on the way home!  LOL
Unfortunately 2 or more glasses of wine usually makes for a disruptive sleep so I woke up early on Monday and watched Central Intelligence while enjoying my coffee.  A workout (BBG 2.0 Week 16 - Leg Day!), laundry and some meal prep for the week made for a productive day!

(*I had 2 glasses of wine before the show started and was totally sober by the time I drove home.  Don't drink and drive!)

Hi everyone!
Two looks for you today!
My Aritzia dress isn't new but I hardly ever wear it (I actually purchased it off Craiglist!).   Firstly, I purchased it for a special work event, and secondly, it's silk!  So I'm kind of terrified of ruining it :\  Just used to wearing poly and being my messy self!  lol  The Bennett dress is brought back every season in new colours and patterns, it's a classic!  It retails for $160/$175 - so WAY out of my budget - but I recommend waiting for a sale or doing like I did and going the re-sale route.

As always, thank you for reading!

Hi everyone!  How was your weekend?  Ours was good, pretty low-key.  As I mentioned last week, my sister was in town for the Keith Urban concert with her hubby and we spent Saturday shopping!  I purchased this black boxy cropped sweater and a lace bell-sleeve top that I can't find online but kind of looks like this.  Unfortunately Old Navy didn't have ANY of the long-sleeved dresses I wanted to try on (see this post), so I will be doing an online order the next time a 40% off sale comes along!  (I gave my SuperCash to my sis to use).  Other than that, we just enjoyed hanging out and eating lots of Thai food :)  I slept so much on Sunday I just don't understand how I am tired on Monday??!  Does this happen to anyone else?

Blazer from H&M (love their blazers!) (old, similar)
Shoes "Suede Amelia Flat" by J.Crew Factory (old, similar)
Necklace by Banana Republic Factory (old, similar)

The colours of this dress make me so happy!  But then remembering I bought it at Target for like $15 makes me sad because we don't have Target in Canada anymore :(  I actually don't remember if I bought this at Target Canada or in the US but I really do wish they were still here.  I could do major damage at that store!  I totally feel it when I see people Instagramming their full red shopping carts like "I went to Target for toothpaste and ended up with all this stuff!" lol
Also, this blazer is from H&M years ago.  Years, people!  I could look back through my blog archives to confirm the actual number, but suffice it to say, for a $60 blazer it has really done well.  I find that H&M blazers are really great for me.  They fit well, and aren't too expensive.  They have a lot of different styles usually, including a few in this kind of cotton jersey material, but fully lined in poly, which keeps it from feeling TOO casual.  Like, say, the Old Navy blazer.  They also make blazers in the classic suiting material, if that is your thing.  I have quite a few blazers already so I don't think (?!) I need to add anymore to my closet for the fall, but a camel, deep red, and pink blazer always catch my eye, so who knows?!  I'm going shopping with my sister this weekend and H&M is always our first stop, so I'll see if they have any goodies ;)

Hi everyone!

Yesterday I received another pair of my favourite work pants in the mail from Old Navy!  The colour is "Winter Spruce" and as you can see is a nice deep green colour, perfect for fall and winter.  I purchased them during at 35% off promo so they were something like $27.  I also purchased another pair in black as unfortunately (you get what you pay for) they do tend to fade, and shrink, as time goes by.  But for the price and the fit I don't mind.  Plus, they come out with new colours and patterns every season so it's a fun way to update your closet with a minimal investment.  Right now Old Navy has Super Cash on as well - I am planning on using mine to buy a couple of cute dresses - they have SO many right now!  I included a few I'm eyeing in the widget below :)
