Woohoo I am headed home. Currently I am flying across Canada on my way back home. Hearing ended early and now I am officially on vacation. Well on vacation as soon as I hit Ottawa. I am prepared to ” Flaunt It” in my 7 Charming Sisters necklace.
Nice ease into that topic right….styling an Old Navy Flannel and my Haggar Dream Jeans with a dash of charming. Yep, 7 Charming Sisters Charming. Ok on a serious note I may be grasping for a bit of humour here but I am also contemplating getting up in 4 hours to catch a plane. Never let it be said the life of business travel is ever glamorous.
Ever notice travel is only exciting and glamorous when it is not a requirement? Do you travel for work? I do, not as frequently as I did ten years ago but it is work. I have to fess up my frustration with those who exclaim, OMG you are so lucky. I was lucky the first time I hit a city not the 20th time, or the 16th time or even the 5th time.
I am in Yellowknife and it is unique and pretty but I am not “lucky”. I am on the road away from home and working extra hours to ensure the job gets done. I try to mitigate the costs so I work long hours. Now I will not lie I do get to see some cool things and I am appreciative. I mean hello who would not trade almost summer temperatures for more snow? OK Kidding, it is a unique Territory and I love the people I am working with,
The hearing today ended early and I was hoping the Ice Castle was still standing. Sadly as soon as it starts melting they knock it down. It is a health and safety hazard.
I was fortunate enough to visit last year in March but I did not get a ton of pictures. One of these days I am coming back and visiting the Castle at night, I really want to see the Northern Lights dance around the castle and the ice sculptures, and head inside for a drink. I missed out on all the fun because it was April and all over but a few bloggers did manage to partake

So back to me and winging my way back home, figured I would share a Sunday casual outfit. I know weekend outfits are usually a secret around here but when you get a cool plaid and a great necklace, why not. Plus Hello Pink Suede Tom’s
