Top Ten Remix Roundup

Well it's the last day of April and since I don't have an outfit to post today I'm going to post my Top Ten Remix round-up!

The Top Ten Remix was started by Sarah from Sarah's Real Life and the challenge was to pick 10 items from your wardrobe that really say "You" (or "Me" or... whatever - you know what I mean).

So here they are and the ways I've worn them over the past month

1. Chambray Shirt - I actually wore this several times this month - however, apparently I only took a picture once...




2. Red Flats - Yeah - these were a good choice. I wear them a LOT
  

3. Leopard Flats - Love these leopard flats. They're pretty much my go-to shoe lately. I love how leopard can actually work as a neutral, but still be a standout on their own.

4. Hearts Necklace - I adore this necklace. It goes with absolutely everything.

5. Double Stud Pearl Earrings - These are an item that kind of surprised me. I love them because they're so unique but at the same time because they're "pearl" they are also kind of classic. I even wore them to a high-tea!

6. Cobalt Blazer - I didn't get nearly as many outfits out of this blazer as I thought I would. I love it and I think it goes with a tonne of things, but I just didn't wear it as often as I thought I would.

7. Poppy Blazer - I can't believe I only wore this once! It's crazy, because I love this blazer, and I totally thought I would wear it more. I did, however, pick up a navy and a red blazer this month - and we all know how sometimes new items take the place of a well-loved not-so-new item.

8. Cropped Black Pants - Again - I'm certain I wore these more often, but only one pictured outfit!  Crazy!


9. Floral Scarf - I wore this scarf several times but not necessarily as part of a defined outfit. The first time I wore this for the top ten was for Easter Sunday - but then my laptop died and I still haven't been able to get the pictures off of it - I have just one from Easter morning with my friend Kate, I also wore the scarf with my chambray and leopard flats just a few days ago.

10. Owl Earrings - I actually wore these a lot this month... but they do NOT photograph well. They often get lost in my hair and as such I only have one picture where you can see the earrings!

So there you have it. My Top-Ten Round-up!

I'm not sure how I actually "did" per se - but it's obvious from the roundup that my whole top ten could have been shoes, lol. Well - Mama loves what Mama loves!

Springtime Day Dress

I posted a quick selfie while wearing this dress yesterday and captioned it mentioning something about how I found this vintage day-dress while shopping!

Tea Time

Can we pretend for a second that I have the kind of lifestyle where I dress up real fancy and go and have high tea somewhere? Oh wait - I do. Well, sort of.

Red blazer and print pants

The print pants are back! Oh how I love printed pants. I have several pairs, in several different prints and I just think they're so fun.

Blue Hair, Don't Care

On Friday I had an appointment with my stylist to do something that I've been wanting to do for quite some time. I had about half of my hair dyed blue!

Paint Chips

I love to try new crafts on a regular basis, and I especially love them if I'm able to somewhat replicate a much more expensive option for much much cheaper. Enter the paint-chip necklace.

Bridal Tea

Sunday afternoon we hosted a Bridal Tea for my friend Jess at church. It was a great fun afternoon, lots of laughs and yummy food (and cupcakes made by moi of course!) and I wore this black/white/red top in homage to the bride-to-be's wedding colour scheme.

Poppy and Plum

Naming colours is a funny thing. When I was thinking of describing this dress as orange and purple it just didn't sound quite.... right.

Flight of Fancy

Friday night I had the rare opportunity to go out for dinner without our kids! We went out to a local restaurant that's super popular (and so yummy) with my parents and Grandparents. It was nice to sit and enjoy a meal without having to tell someone not to... well.. whatever!

Pink Pop!

I have spent literally every day in the past week at our church. From practicing music and dance to set-dressing for 3 different services (and breaking down and resetting) by the time our Maundy Thursday service rolled around I wanted to just wear something comfortable (but still dressy enough for church).

Oh, Flow on...

Maybe it's a plus-size gal thing, maybe it's the dancer in me, maybe it's just me, but I love love LOVE flowy tops. I love big flowy arms, swingy waist and hemline and pintucks and pleating.
