Belated Happy Mother’s Day to all of you awesome Mom’s out there in blogland and IRL. I salute all of you and the amazing work you do every day. Enjoying the day and celebrating in the Old Navy Stripe Dress in Nautical hues.

Yard and Garden

Mom’s day and my Mom’s weekend was spent cleaning up the front garden in the rain.  I was so tired of the cold weather and being house bound so long that I needed to be outside.  We have not even got the pool running yet, that is how miserable it has been.   The pool is uncovered but still has debris at the bottom and we need to get the water going.  I have fingers crossed that this week the weather gods will smile upon Ottawa and we can enjoy the week outside. Stay tuned for a fun post on the front yard transformation. Not completely done but sure looks different already.

Long Weekend

The Canadian May long weekend is happening next weekend. That is our pool must be ready day, I love having the yard and pool summer ready and then we get to just enjoy the rest of the summer.  This could be a really busy yard week.

Friday Fashion in Old Navy Stripe Dress

Friday was a lovely spring day, sun was shining and the air was almost seasonal.  Grabbed the opportunity and went with the bare leg look.  It feels so great to skip the tights and pants and enjoy the air. Worried I may be doing stripe overload but in the end I liked the look. Love this red stripe dress I found last year and wore a few times

Paired the dress with a navy stripe blazer and  two tone vans for a casual yet office appropriate look.  What’s your verdict, to much stripe or the contrasting colours work?

    Hope you had a great mama’s weekend beautiful. I own this year’s version of this dress by Old Navy but it runs so small, wish I had grabbed the medium. Love the stripes on stripes and those nautical loafers. Always showing your Canadian pride which I love. =) Enjoy the long May weekend ahead! Cannot wait to see your yard/garden and pool for this year!
