Hey everyone!  How are you?  I can't believe that it's almost May!! It feels like April just started ... but I am happy if that means warmer weather!


Anyways, here's a look from last week wearing two new items - this red peplum blouse with lace from Smart Set (from this shopping post), and these faux-suede cognac flats from Aldo (from this Insta).  The cardigan is a super old H&M purchase and the pants are my favourite Old Navy Pixie Ankle Pant.  I never really got into the peplum trend when it started a few years ago; remember when the hems were quite severe?  But this softer, looser style of peplum is right up my alley.  I already have another pale pink top (see here) which is more of a drop-waist peplum and I just purchased this top from Old Navy which is not only way cuter in person but is 10x cuter on.  I never would have bought it from the online picture, but in-store it looked both cute and casual.  Speaking of in-store, my sister was in town over the weekend and we got to go shopping together!  Man I love shopping with her, we have similar but different tastes and are close to the same size so it's nice to compare fit, etc.

This coming weekend will be a busy one too; I have family from New Zealand coming in to town, and my Dad is coming down from the Okanagan to meet up with them (it's his brother and his family) and drive them back to wine country for the week.  They are such a sweet and loving family, each of my siblings and I have all been down to New Zealand on separate occasions, and together, and our relatives are just the best hosts.  So we are super excited to see them and show them around town, even if it is just for a few days!

I hope you all have a great week, and weekend, too!
