Jules in Flats - April Outfits



Hey everyone!  Happy Weekend!

Spring has truly sprung in Vancouver, which means you never know what the weather is going to be like, but you should always plan on there being a chance of rain!


So all of the online shopping I told you about last week arrived!!  My Gap order included these mules, this bikini top and this gingham top from Old Navy which are all keepers (yay!).  From American Eagle I'm keeping this top, but sending back the bikini bottoms and this top as it was way too short and boxy :(.  The bikini bottoms I actually liked but I'm trying to find a pair that doesn't cut into my sides too much (hello, muffin top!) and these definitely did.  I went on a mad online search for bikini bottoms after those ones didn't work out but finally decided to just wait until closer to summer when (hopefully) my muffin top has shrunk and I'm feeling more confident about trying on bikini bottoms in general.  I have a couple of pairs that mix and match with a bunch of tops right now that fit fine, and a couple of one-pieces so I'm covered for now.  And how adorable is that Gap top?!  It's so adorable, I can't wait to wear it!  Normally I would have ordered an XS, but they were sold out so I ordered a Small and it fits fine ... so just an FYI if you are planning on getting it!  The mules I ordered in a size 7; my typical size is 6.5 and they fit great with a tiny bit of room at the heel, so I'm not sure if the 6 would have been too small.  The gingham top from Old Navy I ordered in XS and the fit is slightly oversized.  I find Old Navy typically fits on the larger size so I always order the smallest size!

Unfortunately the romper and pleated midi skirt from H&M are returns, and I haven't decided if the mules are slightly too big or fine.  The pleated midi was a size too small and the poly material looked and felt cheap.  The romper was really cute and I wanted to love it, but I didn't think it was that flattering and I didn't like the slits down the arms.  Plus, where am I going to wear that?!  I'd rather hold out for a jumpsuit (or something else) that I really LOVE.  The mules feel a bit big, but they are sold out online now so I can't try on the smaller size for comparison ... what should I do?!  They're just a plain kind of beige mule, not that special, but super versatile for Spring I feel!  They would replace the beige flats I'm wearing with the pleated midi skirt above, which are overdue for retirement!  Lastly, (but not leastly), this striped top from Hollister arrived and is a keeper.  It fits oversized and is so soft!  I ordered my usual size (XS) and it has a nice, relaxed vibe to it.


What is everyone up to this weekend??

Last night I went to hot yoga, which was a nice, sweaty way to end the week, until a poor guy in front of me passed out in class!!  It was really scary, he fell forward onto his head (from seated) and started bleeding from his head wound, and convulsing!!  The teacher tried to tell us he was fine but I think he might have had a seizure!  Anyways, it was upsetting to say the least and I hope he is doing OK!

Today we had our new dishwasher and microwave delivered (bright and early!) and I've just been reading, doing my nails and blogging while T teaches himself a new board game.  Tonight we're meeting friends for dinner and maybe a movie at their place!  Tomorrow ... no plans but maybe brunch and some open houses?  LOL We'll see!


As always, thank you so much for reading!  I hope you all have a great weekend!

Hello, hello!  Happy Weekend!

How is everyone??  I am so tired, I only got 5 hours of sleep last night!  I apologize to all of you for whom that is a regular occurrence but I need my 8 hours!  If you've been reading this blog for awhile you know I usually get that, plus some on the weekend!  LOL.  Maybe the gods will have mercy on me and I can take a nap later!

Anyways, we don't have much of a weekend planned over here; yesterday I had to work and then last night I went to Juniper for dinner with a friend that was in town.  She slept over at our place and we stayed up late talking (hence the lack of sleep last night!).  Today I just need to get a few things done (blog post, laundry, nails, breakfast/lunch meal prep) but other than that we have no plans.  Probably just a lot of couch time, LOL!

We officially have no kitchen, just a fridge, so our week of eating takeout has begun!  I just hope things stay on track and it doesn't end up being longer than a week!  :/

Last week I mentioned a lot of things I was thinking about buying and I'm happy to report that I actually pulled the trigger on a quite a few!  Now, I haven't received any of them yet, so TBD on whether or not they are keepers, but I'm excited.  Rather than listing them I made a little widget that you can shop below:


(Let me know if you like this visual format better!)


I also purchased this top in the blue stripe (I wasn't able to add it to the widget above!  Argh!) . It doesn't look like much on the model but I saw it in store and it's super soft and I think will look great half-tucked with high-waisted skinny jeans and denim shorts in the summer.

I finally got my hair cut and coloured last week and it feels so much better!  The last outfit from this week with the navy top is from the day after I got it done; I literally did nothing except dry shampoo and finger brushing that morning!  Oh, and speaking of hair, on Monday (the striped dress outfit), my curling iron stopped working when I was literally halfway through curling my hair!  I had to brush out the curls and then do a side sweep so it wouldn't be so obvious!  LOL I actually re-ordered the exact same curling iron off Amazon that morning for same-day delivery but we were out when they tried to deliver it so I didn't get it for a few days!

In other sad news, I lost a diamond from my wedding band!!  I have to take it in to get fixed and am scared of how much it's going to cost!  I don't want to lose any more either so I took it off yesterday and now my ring finger looks so bare with just my engagement ring on!  It's funny the things you get used to!

Anyways, thank you all for visiting and I hope you have a great week!!
