The 3 Way - 1 Piece Style - The faux fur vest

If you can visualize three ways to wear one piece then it's a keeper.
I like to think, work, weekend and a little night out for styling ideas.
Loving this faux fur vest by dreamboat lucy (this one is mine)  local, lovely sister designers.

Momoflague ~Fall 2015

Thanks to CTV Morning Live and my fabulous super model mommies & cute kids! 
Momoflague, some mornings you just need to get the door fast, without the fuss.
Survive in style with my five top pieces to get one dressed without a shower~ 
1. A great pair of sunnies- pick your favourite pair~a great way to show your personal style
2. A hat - your style here. A fedora is mine.
3. A throw on and go jacket, sweater coat or try a poncho this season
4. A great bag
5. A slip on shoe boot or fun trainer that you can rely on working with jeans to a day dress.

#LetGo

This beautiful video caught my attention as I was doing my to do list and feeling the anxiety  building in my chest. I'm listening...I will try way harder to #LetGO X 

Transitioning...

It's that time of year when fall is in the air, kids are back to school and my denim is way too tight!
The chips & cheese & maybe a few summer bevies are on me! 
Transition into fall with a great 70's style with some forgive flow dress.
Wear now with your sandals or booties and as the gym schedule starts up again (crossing my fingers)~ add that denim on underneath! You are then fall ready for anything, or at least that works for me.
The dress over jeans look, is my annual move.
This beauty from ZARA is on the way to my mailbox, so I can get the kids to school without pants on~:

Genius~

The best chart I have seen in a long while from WhoWhatWear.com

Mumsy

Mumsy~
Giving an impression of dull domesticity; dowdy or unfashionable.

From the Oxford dictionary.
5 ways to avoid being Mumsy~

1. Don't play it too safe.
Dress for yourself. Buy what you love, wear what you love, not whats 
easiest to wash and dry.
2. Avoid beige. Especially on your bum. Beige bum generally is not yum.
Ground beige with black, keep it cool.
3. Don't matchy match. This is an instant ager, instant.
Texture is the key to getting dressed not two identical mauve pieces.
4. Drop your old fashion rules. Drop them now, they are hurting you.
Even if your own mom said it. If the rule is stopping you from things you like, tell it to beat it!
5. Overly sensible shoes are a style killer. 

Modern footwear always. More shoes = more clothes!
Happy Mother's Day my Mums! X
