Doesn’t this dress just scream:  FALL IS HERE!?

Gawd!!  I fell in love with this on the hangers at Tatyana Boutique – before they closed their Toronto location – which means up to 80% discounts on all their gorgeous frocks.

So I picked up this bad boy…and have been patiently waiting for my birthday to wear it. 🙂

Not like I ever need an excuse to treat myself to a new frock …teeheee 😛 ….

But if you’ve got a looming birthday on the horizon – that is an EXCELLENT excuse to treat = a new outfit!

At the time of purchasing this dress, I didn’t really have any plans to celebrate my birthday.  All I knew was that this dress needed to be mine.

Just look at the fun and sassy lace embellishment around the entire neckline ….. ❤

This dress came with a sweet little deep green ribbon belt…. which I chose to wear in my hair instead of around my waist.

Now Toronto’s still pretty lucky with the weather we’ve been getting.  So for true birthday purposes wearing this dress solo was perfect!!!

But with Fall officially here now, a girl’s gotta come up with ideas to keep cute + warm.

Here’s my plans for this dress into cooler temperatures….until the snow hits, that is:

What I Did

September babies are the best!!! Turns out several of my peeps are fellow September babies.

So what better way to celebrate ALL of their birthdays than by one big ol’ party doing all the things we each love:

Day Drinking – Patio Potlucking – BBQ’ing – Cake Eating – Dancing – Pole’ing – Hot Tubbing too!!!

There you have it friends – celebrating turning 29 for the umpteenth time with patio fun, good friends and the perfect weather day!!!

Nashville in Toronto

Are you following me on Instagram?

If you are…then you know how I was out and about, innocently walking into downtown for my University Alumini Day (Go Ryerson Rams) when I stumped upon Tatyana Boutique crazy eff’ing sale of up to 90% off their racks!!!

Naturally, I went nuts.  And never made it to that Alumni Day.  **blush**

This Nashville dress features a lively flower print with colorful, textured cotton string fabric running throughout and a sweetheart neckline.  At first glance it didn’t really speak to me…..but then I tried it on. And just look at it!!! ❤

When stores offer super discount pricing … very rarely is my size among them.

But it seemed like it was my luck day … 🙂

Plus after all discounts THIS dress was 80% off the sticker price,  Making this frock $24!!!  #winning

How I Got The Look:  The dress, Tatyana Boutique; The boots, Reitmans; The jean jacket, Old Navy;  The belt, earrings and cowboy hat are super old and very much still loved 🙂

Giddy up!!!  Guess we know what I’m wearing the next time I round-up the troop for some good ol’ fashioned country line-dancing 😉

Were you able to make it out to Tatyana Boutique during their super duper summer clear-out sales?

Springtime PINK

Oh friends!  I’m sorry I’ve been so absent with outfit posts.

I am getting up everyday and wearing clothes and going out and about … I promise. 🙂

I just haven’t been very good about photographing.  And truth be told, been feeling kinda blue these days and not in the mood to write about clothes, shoes, etc.

Just been feeling ‘meh’.

But enough about that…..here’s my April Springtime in PINK recap:

Follow me on INSTAGRAM … as I often post OOTDs there as they happen 🙂

Pink Lace 

I recently hit The Duffrin Mall for a much-needed eyebrow clean up appointment…and somehow this lovely frock followed me home 🙂

I’ve noticed that the styles of Forever21+ online are very different from what they’ve got in the store. So, I was pleasantly surprised when I found this one.  (PS:  Great plus size selection at the Duffrin Mall location by the way ;))

Since it’s been a wintery-like Spring for much of this month, I paired it with a long-sleeved cardi with diamond-like sparkle buttons (Mark’s Work Wearhouse)

Hot Pink Shortie Cardi

Oook!  Remember my tailor-made-just-for-me Birdy Dress from Vietnam?   Well, I took it to the office by wearing this hot pink shortie cardi overtop (Old Navy) and this bright printed circle scarf (Ardene) to keep the cleavage work appropriate.

And last but not least,

Colour Me Pink with the Fanny Midi Skirt:

I picked up this amazing green Fanny Midi Skirt from Tatyana Boutique last fall during their BOGO event.  Happy to note it’s still currently available here.

It is a pricey piece…so I’m thrilled to be able to make it work for springtime too!

I wore it last weekend to a fun Rockabilly Brunch in my hood, with a long-sleeve laced shoulder shirt from Forever21+ that I picked up ages ago, and the striped purse is Kate Spade (click here for more purse).

OH, click here to see how I wore it this past Winter, and where I went.

Hoped you enjoyed this quick and dirty recap of my April Springtime looks.
