Loving Life after 50

My Anchors are again a Faithful Companion

Happy Friday and today I head to Quebec City so hopefully I will get a chance ( and good weather) to get out and take some awesome shots for you.  Old Quebec is beautiful. So stay tuned and keep watching Instagram I am sure I will be posting (a lot)
Old Quebec and Chateau Frontenac
Thanks Wikipedia for a quick glimpse 
What a Thursday evening I had, packing for a week in Quebec City followed by a week in Orlando and trust me not the same type of outfits at all.  I am not getting home till Friday night and we leave on vacation Saturday so…. my summer stash is all stacked in the spare bedroom ready for a quick changeover when I get home.  Wow first world problems right.
Is it only me or does the rest of the world also hate packing for trips this time of year? OK let’s clarify that, travel to Orlando no brainer I am pretty confident about the weather and the activities but Quebec City… now that is complicated. Cities not in the South or West Coast experience huge fluctuations in temperatures this time of year. We could get warm temps and then the next day snow…plus buildings are all turning off the heating systems in anticipation of warmer weather and inevitably it will be cool and rainy so we will freeze inside. Am I getting any sympathy,  no, that’s what I thought.  
I am heading to a Union Convention for work so dress code is usually more relaxed but in a conference center I need to be prepared for all sorts of temps,  lets see if I wear all I bring . Casual attire can be fun. 

Old Navy Classic Linen Blazer, Anchor Blouse and Boyfriend Jeans paired with Converse
Remember the old saying a faithful companion is a sure anchor, well I am sure this anchor shirt will continue to be a faithful companion for me LOL. I am wearing some stripes and anchors here and an outfit totally all from Old Navy ( and I just realized that as I was typing this, wel really jeans, blazer and shirt are Old Navy but the Necklace and tank are Forever 21) I recently won a 30.00 giftcard on an Instagram giveaway( Thanks Tishy LOL) so I treated myself to this linen blazer, I sized up because I wanted a loose comfy look but I think I could have gotten my normal size and it still would have been loose enough ( but sold out so I will make do)

    Love your blazer and shirt and since the colors are the same between both, the patterns work. The White Converse look great here. Enjoy this weekend, Linda!
