Loving Life after 50

Edmonton Bound and I am taking the Sea ( nautical) with me

Old navy red stripes, navy blazer and sperry's
Slightly ironic that I felt an overwhelming urge to go nautical for my travel day to Edmonton, can you say landlocked??? I mean seriously I must be as far from the sea as I can get but who cares right, who can go wrong with a nautical flare.  I am a convert for plane travel,  this Tee dress and blazer was so comfortable, add a pair of nautical boat shoes and it seriously is the best travel outfit.  I look good ( kind of a bit of a brag there right, but I mean I really look totally presentable right?) I was comfortable and to top it off a  very appropriate outfit for a get off the plane, have a meeting and then go check in to the hotel.

( and apparently I really like this combo because when I searched this dress on my blog I realized I had worn this almost identical outfit already, Oh well and look closely the gardens look way better))

In Edmonton for two days of meetings but the bonus is I have two sisters, three nieces and two great nephews here so family pizza party.  Instead of trying to figure out how to fit all the visits in I figured invite everyone to the hotel ( pool, hot tub and water slide). We are planning a pool party/pizza party and a chance to catch up on life.

and for a final note of randomness how about a fun giveaway for Coach or a Gold MacBook
