getting dressed

The battle in my head of should I or shouldn't I seems to happen often. I wonder most days what the point is in "getting dressed" vs remaining in lounge clothes. Then I suck it up, and do it, and instantly feel better.  There is such power for me in looking good, and being put together. I know I am by no means dressed up, or on most days even dressed that interestingly. But I feel more confident, happier, and possess a sense of purpose when I wear "real clothes".  I in no way do it to have content for this silly little blog, but the blog is the push I need on the days where I have no set plans. But if I don't get dressed, we don't go out. And I love to see G marvel in the world around her and do not want her spending her days indoors.
So today I feel good, and am ready for whatever adventures we embark on throughout this no plans day.

girls night

Last night I got all dolled up and headed out downtown to meet some lovely ladies at our favorite sushi place. It was a much needed night of laughs, drinks, good food, and most importantly adult conversation. Most of which revolved around books, especially the "Fifty Shades" trilogy. I'm on the second book and despite being a tad repetitive, I can't seem to put it down.

Yesterday there was an email in my inbox that one of my favourite online shops for designer goodies, SSENSE, was having a sale. A SALE! They don't regularly have stuff on sale so I freaked out and started looking. I came across shoes I hadn't noticed they carried before - PINK PIG BALLERINA FLATS by Marc by Marc Jacobs. OMG! SO CUTE! I ordered them after debating for a couple hours and HOLY SH*T BATMAN, they arrived this morning! That's less than 24 hours. Impressive! (Although they are only based in Montreal.) I'm a 8.5 but they were sold out so I had to get a 9. I think I might need a heel pad thingy to make them a bit more snug. I have been smitten with his animal flats for about a year and now I finally have a pair. YESSS!!!

 (it's getting dark out so these photos aren't the greatest - the colour is more realistic in the 2nd photo)

monday at the office

speaking of neon....

t-shirt ~ don't know, i think i ripped the tag out, got it on sale last year at Holt Renfrew
pants ~ 2 Two {last seen here}
shoes ~ Aldo {last seen here}
necklace ~ F21
pink bracelet ~ (which I see now I should have left at home) Aldo
beaded chain bracelet ~ F21
rings (not including vintage wedding ring) ~ A Twist of Fate
skinny belt ~ ok so I wore the black Aldo one cause I didn't have anything else, and it turned out my twin was wearing a silver leopard print one that was perfect so she let me wear it for the remainder of the photos.

channeling my inner kim

From the fluro tee and shoes, to the facial expressions that read "I hate having my picture taken" I feel like I'm embodying Kim today. Although I'm sure she'd have spent the 10 minutes required to do her hair. I was up at 3am with the little, and couldn't have been bothered.
I also cannot seem to be able to remove the stickers from these damn shoes. I find it inexplicably annoying when people leave stickers on their shoes (or tags on scarves, and on the arms of winter wool coats).

tee: Simons
shorts: 10 year old jeans from Jacob that are 3 sizes too big, so I cut 'em into cute shorts
shoes: Aldo
bracelets: Mango and a baby bracelet
watch: Fossil
nailpolish: Essie "lilacism"
